Another shooting of teen

This is the latest from Malaysiakini:

Yet another teenager has been shot at by the police but this time in a rare show of humility and compassion Negeri Sembilan’s top cop apologised for the action of the officerconcerned.

SAC1 Datuk Osman Salleh in doing so described the action as “unjustifiable considering the boy never posed any danger to the officer”.

He also said that the police officer responsible has since been suspended from his duties.

Imat rempitn the 3.30am incident at Seremban today, some policemen spotted about 20 Mat Rempit hanging around Kampung Ujong Pasir.

On spotting the police car, they scrambled away on their motorcycles, triggering a chase.

According to The Star online, some of the youths were taunting the policemen by swerving left and right in front of the pursuing police car.

One of the policemen then opened fire, hitting a 17-year-old boy in the hip.

However, Osman at a press conference this afternoon, stressed that those were meant to be warning shots.

He added that the boy is now in stable condition at the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital.

WHy must the police shoot in this case? It is obvious that they do not pose a threat to the police.

There must be a independent bogy overseeing the police force, and IPCMC which was recommneded by the Royal Commission on the enhancement of Police Force must be set up without delay.

    It goes to show that there are issues with policemen”

    1. Not well trained to handle situations. The training of a mata mata had been reduced from 1 year to 3 months. In such short period, it is not possible to indoctrinate the trainees.

    2. Poor quality of entries. with the poor education standard and other choices of career, the police is the last hope for many.

    3. Given these conditions, the police force have let loose a corp of dangerous people in uniform.

    4. With these poor candidates the line between law enforcement and crime is very thin indeed.

    5. So people, every time your leave the house, your life is on the balance.

    mat rempit is a nuisance on the road, more so at night because they can disturb your sleep (if you happened to stay in a hotel by the main road on a holiday eve of the place).

    however a patrol car is no match for a gang of hardcore rempit, so there is no need to show the gun. unless there is a major coordinated operation by the police.

    Why are the youth so restless?
    Why are they so daring?
    Why are they gathering,
    in such form,
    in such places?

    Why are the polis so helpless?
    Why are they so doomed?
    Why can’t they lessen
    the surging energies of these groups?

    What are the parents doing?
    What will they feel,
    when their children perish
    in the wee hours of their life?

    Are we pointing fingers again?
    Are we raging in pain?
    Not realizing we too are to blamed?

    How can the teens not be so restless when instead of talking of solution, Hishamuddin went and insult the mothers. I hope his mother would put him across her knees and whack his bottom. With this kind of people as home minister, there will never be any solution.

    It has been telling a long time that the wisdom and common sense of our highly paid ministers are literally bankrupt, except their bank accounts.

    It’s the sad truth but still voted in and appointed to posts their low level of intelligence can highly function. Well, this country especially those supporting them deserve these nickapoops!!

    “There must be a independent body overseeing the police force, and IPCMC which was recommended by the Royal Commission on the enhancement of Police Force must be set up without delay.”

    So what is Gerakan doing on this matter? Has it even started pressuring UMNO for it? If it had, has it given UMNO a time-frame to implement IPCMC failing which they walk?

    Or is Gerakan so insignificant now in UMNO’s eyes not to mention the voters eyes that whatever they do now is insignificant?

    Remember doc? My friend from the UK Lib-Dems who gave a talk to your party leadership? Well they are the king-makers now in UK politics!

    Anyway what I say to you is an exercise in futility because of Gerakan’s sissy leadership and that opportunity to form the 3rd choice no longer exist. Too much racialistic shit had been allowed to take place with nary a whimper from Gerakan’s TOP man (or should I say eunuch)!

    Even if Gerakan does the right thing now, it is too late. Gerakan will go down in history as a party that ONCE promised so much but because of poor leadership, caused its own demise and allowed the country to go to rots!

    It is considered to be too insignficant in the eyes of the dominant party. When u can’t even keep the BN chairmanship of some of your seats, how are u going to fight for your rights and citizens’ interest.

    U deserves the govt u voted in.

    Insignificant party warming the seat of the cabinet without a sense of shame – this is the lowest a human being could imagine. Yet the whole bunch of shameless Gelakan comedians proudly stand before us assuming the audience will shower them with praises. Throw shit in their face instead, comrades.
