Look carefully at this photo. May I ask you Malaysians - do you want your kids to be like this? Disrespecting law and order, confronting the police and turning them (our youths) into subversive agents?
What IGP Musa Hassan told Ahmad Talib during a 'live' interview on TV3 last night was right (here). The policemen were trained to act accordingly but there are a few who went overboard. If the public refuse to cooperate in keeping a harmonised neighborhood, dont blame it on the police.
Also, he urged poliicians (especially the Opposition) not to interfere in police duty as it will disrupt the procedure of investigation. However, that's what they love doing, trying to become hero to a clear-cut criminals and politicising whatever the police do.
I dont want to go deeper into this issue but we, as parents and members of the community, should ask ourselves - is it fair to blame the police all the times when they catch your kids riding or driving around without a valid driving license?
Or is it fair for a politician to find 'a way out' for an 'ahlong' or a drug dealer being held at a police lockup?
Let's not single out any relevant case as many readers do not like it. I believe there are more good policemen than the bad ones. Generally, more people are having their brain shrink when it comes to admitting the fact that they too are not contributing to preventing crime and other sorts of wrongdoings.
Go back to the picture... ironically, many people are proud to have kids like this.
