Has violence been outsourced too ?

This is the latest from Malaysiakini:

Thugs attack students at Dataran Merdeka

According to the report, about 50-70 thugs attacked  and roughed up the students camping there around 2.45am. According to the report, there were about ” a dozen police officers in the area but they did not intervene until the students’ leaders pleaded for their help.”

(courtesy of Malaysiakini)

I hope the authority will investigate this incident with full transparency. While we may or may not agree to the reasons of the students camping there, we should respect their freedom to do so, especially when amendments have been made to allow freedom of gatherings.

(from Malaysiakini)

I have written about the outsourced organisation from the Big Brother, utering all sort of racist remarks that the Big Brother would rather not say for fear of further alienating the moderates.

Is this beating up of university students also a part of the outsourcing? To prove that this is not, the authority must take action and investigate fully this despicable act.

    This is the trend, outsource violence such as those in Iran, and Egypt. One of this led to fall of Murbarak government. This tactics has already proven to be fatal to the authority because it makes the relationship between the citizens and government more disgusting. Let the students camp out there as long as they want, they will move on after a while. Beating at the Lynas demonstrations in the early days. Bestings at the Penang Lynas gathering. Beatings at many ceremahs held by opposition parties. Beatings at ABU gathering. All these make Malaysia looks uncivil.

    Based on the above saying from DaoDejing, I foresee the dawn of a Malaysia Spring arriving soon. Its just a matter of yin and yang finding their equilibrium.

    this may be a small violence when compare to passing 8 laws in a single day by our parliament. What has the elites of Gelakan got to say? Opposition wasting time ? Is a our parliament reduced to be a stamping office? The primary duty of parliamentarians are to enact laws, not shouting slogans and pointing fingers at dirty drains and potholes? If this is not enough evidence of the gomen rushing all these laws due to the forthcoming GE, then why the hurry. All the laws involved are of importance to our next generation as well as smooth and fair functioning of our administration system.

    When Polis Raja Di Malaysia is requested to act, they only drag their feet. When comes to peaceful gathering like candle light vigil, singing Negaraku, ceramah, peaceful and sitting down protest, these people get whacks from the baton.

    Outsourcing violence to win at all costs, even over crush bones and dead bodies and our kids weren’t spared?

    Sigh, this country has really gone to the dogs! When is ENOUGH finally ENOUGH?
    Change of government must come, it has to in GE-13!

    I think No 1 is out of control of the right wing of his party. This act of violence would only cause backlash against the Big Brother, and who is to gain? As i have mentioned in the last post, only the vultures who are within striking distance of the top position would benefit.

    We saw what was to become of Abdullah Badawi and his ultimate downfall at the hands of the evil force of UMNO and looks like Najib will go the Abdullah-Badawi way. They have plans and Najib won’t be spared either. His time has come and the evil force will see to that. Either way he is finished, and I call on him before it’s too late:

    Mr PM, with the power of No.1 CEO in his hands, expose the evil-doers and save this nation of ours before the vultures strike. Just do the necessary in the name of your father Tun Abdul Razak Hussein who must be tossing and turning in his grave and you, his eldest son, don’t you ever drop his ‘water face’!

    I agree, he has too much skeleton in the closet but those around him aren’t angels either. So why choose to sink alone, and allow those evil corrupt do more damage, why not expose them and sink together? 1Malaysia-UMNO ma!

    Abdullah Badawi should have done that, put a stop to wasteful spending. He could have saved this nation but he didn’t. He was on honeymoon, slept on his job and allowed them free-runs eg Scorpene & related Altantuya murder, missing jet-engines, PKFZ, Cowgate scandal etc . He failed his people, he failed this nation!

    When the guardians of the law are not doing their work, who should we turn to?
    When thugs and ruffians hurt fellow citizens, who should we protect?
    When the people want to be heard and actions taken, who should they go to?

    Things may seem to look well, but do not appear to be well when one takes a deeper look.

    Just like a lawyer once said that it might look like him, might also appear to be like and seen to be like him, it was not him.

    Our guardians of the law seem to be like guardians but not them.

    All is not well. All signs point to change.

    “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. “, said Leo Tolstoy

    Our VOTES as our only weapon against all the evil deviationism, so please use our votes as our unwaivered commitment for betterment of our beloved Malaysia. It is not that Pakatan is guaranteed to be perfect, but it is time politicians need to work real hard to serve the rakyat, the rulers, and the nation instead of squandering it away to enrich themselves, their cronies, their families. We got to save Malaysia. Look at Britain, USA, countries in Europe, even Tiawan,Japan, Korea, Australia. All the top performing nations have two or multi fronts system. Time will come for Singapore to be the same. Or a nation be ruled by dictatorship.

    Dear Dr Hsu

    Notice also the latest tactic: using DBKL staff to do the job of the police (to reduce the level of public condemnation perhaps?)
    Is it part of the job description of DBKL staff to clear streets of young people exercising their democratic rights of peaceful assembly and dissent?

    Prof Phua,

    If the big brother has just go along with Bersih’s decision to hold the sit at Dataran Merdeka, it would not have gained so much more publicity and anticipation. Alas, the hardliners have not learned their lessons.

    You are right to say that instead not using the police, they are using the Mayor and DBKL. And the goons who assaulted the students, who are they+ Harris Ibrahim has already identified one of them in his blog..

    Whatever liberal law they have enacted, if they do not know democracy is about following the wishes of the people, they will never become liberal minded.

    Bob Marley’s message to all Malaysians

    “Get up stand up, stand up for your rights”

    This includes the second class citizens of semi-apartheid Malaysia.

    And a message of peace, reconciliation and equality from the Occupied Territories ruled by semi-apartheid Israel
