Our condolences to the family of the 15 year old school boy who was killed by the police. The arrogant and above the law mindset Inspector General of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan had the cheek to say, “if people do not want the law to be enforced, then I shall instruct my men to refrain from stopping cars or from going after illegal racers” ( Headlines NST 30/4/10 ). "If you do not want the police to enforce the law, then say so,” he said. “Let me know so that I can tell my men to not take any action, including conducting inspections on vehicles or arresting Mat Rempits who ride without licences” (The Star 30/4/2010 at page N4).
If only UMNO, PKR, DAP, PAS and NGO leaders and the mainstream and alternative media editors had given the same attention, concern, proactive actions, etc, hundreds of Indian lives would have been saved from being killed by the police executionists acting under the police shoot to kill policy, in their theatrics wayang kulit to show that they are bringing down the crime rate. And while the real criminals cum “profit sharing ” crime partners of the police including their top brass remain on the loose. No wonder the prevailing high crime rate in the country. But for which the police otherwise make media statements that the crime rate is reducing.
Teoh Beng Hock similarly had rightly received and is receiving the appropriate media and PKR, DAP and PAS’ attention. If only UMNO, PKR, DAP, PAS and NGOs’ and the print and electronic media had equally cared, the misery heartache, pain and suffering of the hundreds of the Indian families would have been spared.
But because the victims were almost all Indians, UMNO, PKR, DAP, PAS, NGOs’ and the media does not care.
But then UMNO talks about One Malay-sia and PKR, DAP and PAS talks about multi-racialism!
Pray tell us of one Indian victim of police killing who had received headlines attention, and UMNO, PKR, DAP and PAS care and attention to this level!
A.Kugan may be the exception as some 5,000 Hindraf Makkal Sakthi forces held a massive funeral procession when Kugan’s brutal and bloody pictures were captured and circulated widely.
UMNO, PKR, DAP and PAS should stop being racist and should start championing issues according to the gravity and the seriousness and it should not matter if the victim was Malay and Chinese, and should not be sidelining and sidestepping Indian victims.
