Malaysians, what is your take on that? Why are you not cooperating? So if you get robbed or get stoned to near death under some dingy car park, or get raped – don’t blame the police lah.
Blame yourself. Understand? The unfortunate happened to you because Malaysians are not cooperating to fight crime, understand!
Holy cow! Any public relations novice studying Mass Communication will tell you that the Home Minister has just made the worst public relations act.
Let us now ask the honorable minister the following questions:
How many houses do not have pad-locked fences, gates, doors, frills?
How many houses do not have five-feet high fencing and walls around their property?
What about the alarms we install in our homes and cars?
How about the thriving CCTV business in Malaysia?
What do you want us to do?
And now you tell us that walking to the car alone is tantamount to non-cooperation? That carrying a handbag in public is non-cooperation? That if a robber breaks into my padlocked house it is because I am not cooperating?
What do you want Malaysians to do? Jump and strangle the daylight out of a would-be robber in a car park? Club a potential robber even before he breaks into a house?
Or do you want the public out on their daily routines to also double-up as security personnel out in the streets, in their Tamans, and at car parks?
So you want us to hide our little hard earned wealth displays of gold and even resort to keeping our little shopping money inside our under garments so that we are seen to be cooperating in not tempting robbers?
So every time a festive holiday comes, a family must run to the police station to inform that they are not going to be in the house?
Try for some common sense, please
Please Mr. Honorable Home Minister, can we have some common sense and responsible leadership around us when it comes to fighting crime?
Malaysians are spending far too much of their hard earned money to ensure that they have grills, padlocks, chains, alarms, CCTVs, dogs and even guards to ensure they can be safe at home.
Malaysians have installed alarms in their vehicles and added on pad-locks and steering locks too.
Today Malaysians do not wear gold and diamonds to work or when driving around. The only pearls, diamonds and gold decking we see being flashed are on the ministers’ spouses.
Please let us have some level headed accountability and honor.
