I've not seen the video you mention, though I don't doubt that it's as bad as you describe. Horrible prison and work conditions, government bribery, etc. is a fact of life for the Third World (and parts of the developed world). Duterte certainly isn't breaking any records there. Rather than directing our criticism at individual leaders, I think a better approach would be to fault the dominant economic and political system, which condemns the majority of humanity to a life of misery. Perhaps a multipolar world will offer more opportunities for the subaltern to develop. By trying to wrest the Philippines free from American hegemony, Duterte is working hard to create such a multipolar world.
