Why RM 1 Billion in 2010 budget when five (5) Indian youths are shot dead in cold blood by summary execution by the Malay-sian police as a short cut measure. For the third day in a row only the Tamil newspapers in particular Tamil Nesan on 11/11/2009 at page 5 covered the human rights aspect of these Indian youths aged 24, 22, 21, 19 and most cruelly a juvenile aged 17.
Can you imagine three coffins of three brothers in one family house for their mother Vasanthi to grieve. Even in a sudden death in ordinary circumstances, the mother may take a life time to eventually get over her grief. But here three of Vasanthi’s sons are mudered by the Malay-sian UMNO police force in the most tragic manner ie shot dead in cold blood for merely being a suspect.
But the scores of corrupt policemen and policemen actually involved in crime are however not shot dead. Why?
Even in the 1980s’ Botak Chin the then most notorious criminal was captured alive, put to trial and only then sent to the gallows.
Even a criminal sentenced to death has to be treated with respect according to the rule of law. But the Malay-sian UMNO government allocates RM 1, 000 Million (1 Billion) to the Malay-sian police in the 2010 National budget! What to practice short cuts, lower down efficiency rates of the Malay-sian police, take the law into their hands and to give the police force the wrong signals that they are above the law and can get away with murder? And to shoot dead and kill especially Indian youths as a means to reduce the crime rate?
Perhaps we need the Army Chief to take over as the IGP to transform the police force (Note : there is a recent precedent of the Air Force Chief being made the Army Chief).
In the 52 years since Independence the efficiency, capability and competency of the police force has only gone to the drains.
We once again call for the sacking of the Inspector General of Police Musa Hassan and his Federal CID Chief Bakri Zinin.
