The Star really has the most offensive, politically motivated and reprehensible headlines sometime.
This Sunday morning, I am treated to: “Wee Hours Kids” or some such nonsense:
The fatal shooting of 15-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah by police has now put in the limelight this growing phenomenon of teens staying out late.This echoes that disgustozoid Sharizat, whose analysis of the ‘critical issues’ surrounding the shooting includes:
Staying up late into the wee hours, parents not being able to exercise authority on children, driving without licence etc.Friends, the parents are not in the limelight here. Just like in the Nurin case, can you imagine the pain the parents are already going through, and here we politicians and their mainstream mouthiepces going on about how it is their fault.
What are parents supposed to say? “Don’t go out late at night.. The cops might shoot you”?!??!?!?!?!?!?
Is it just me or is there something wrong with that line of thought.
What should have been highlighted, if the parties involved were more attuned to the genuine concerns of ordinary Malaysians, is how the Malaysian police have gotten a little too trigger happy lately.
Yes, there are social ills surrounding staying out late, but any attempt to use that as a distraction against the fact that the cops shot an unarmed 14 year old boy to death is unacceptable!!!
