It is sickening to find out the kind of lies those in higher authority are prepared to condone.
The IGP and Minister of Home Affairs have misaligned themselves by their hasty decisions to try protect those errant policemen and listened to their lies to try absolve themselves from the responsibility for the death of the innocent boy.The police should not get away with impunity.The IGP must show the people that no one is above the law including his policeman.
Malaysian Insider reported here a witness' version of events leading to the tragic shooting, Aminulrashid's friend who rode with him in the car but managed to escape after being assaulted by five policemen.He could have been dead as well.
The whole nation is watching and waiting for the next step Prime Minister Najib would take to satisfy public outcry over this gross dereliction of duty of both the IGP and the Home Minister.Their statements showed no concern for the feelings of the deceased family and public opinion. Such behaviour is ignominious.Both have poor people skills damaging Najib's efforts to endear the people to his administration.Arrogance,apathy and pomposity unfitting of a civil servant and a government minister.Least they forget, both are paid by taxpayer's money to protect the people not bully them when faced with a situation.
If Najib wants to survive the next general elections he must first arrest the deteriorating quality of his administration.Many of his ministers have exhausted their shelf-lives and unfit for the job.They are deadwood and still live in their fantasy land and think everything is hunky-dory without realising that every time they open their faulty mouths they made fools of themselves and foods for the oppositions and Najib losing his hair.
The BN and UMNO in particular is ubiquitously trapped in hierarchical politics. Promote its people to a level of incompetence.Many UMNO ministers have no people skills.They got all confused, where the cart and where the horse should be.They think the people owe it to them when it should be the other way round.Many can't work under pressure spoiled by over fifty years of nonchalant administration spoiled by the minimal opposition.Since March 2008 the political landscape has changed and with it the loss of their comfort zones.
It makes one wonder how people like Hisamuddin Onn, who has exceeded his effective scope, can rise to be given most crucial ministry where security of the nation and safety of the general public is placed in his hands.Peter Principal applied to him and a number of our ministers and civil servants including the former Home Minister who left his burning glass behind.
The IGP should not find justification and imputed righteousness in defending his men and retorted that the public did not show any appreciation to the police including for those killed in the line of duty.
Those are occupational hazards that came with that type of job and members of the public do sympathise.We gave our sympathy in silence. The IGP should not expect spontaneous public outcry every time a policeman got killed in the line of duty.
I have never met a nasty or rude policeman, those that I have encountered even at road blocks are pleasant and polite.Maybe, things are different in Sabah, where violent crimes may not be as high as in big city like Kuala Lumpur putting policemen under a lot of stress.Still, no reason for the IGP and minister to be on the defensive.
Najib should call for the resignation of both the IGP and Home Minister for mishandling of the case.
This is not the first time, there were many instances.The video below is the case of another victim Norizan, shot five times.Fortunately, with five bullets shot at her she survived.
Every life matters, no matter how small.Every parents, husband,wife,daughter and son suffered the loss of their loved ones.It's excruciatingly heart rending for those who has to face its reality.
I support the BN concept but I shall not be blinded.I don't and can't support this kind of behaviour.
Sorry, is a word never said wrong, which many of us have not learned to say when it's most needed.
