So the police are finally taking steps to curb the alarmingly high crime rate in Johor Baru ! (read here ) Have you not wondered why it always has to be a last resort "thinggy" with the public getting "pissed-off" with the situation and having to protest in front of the Chief Minister's house before any action is seemed to be taken ?
Now read this very contradicting report by Bernama . Yes, the good Director-General of Tourism Malaysia is right.....yes, when you want to compare statistics with a far away country....but look here, Mr. Director-General sir, stop this hogwash, I don't live in Italy and stop trying to keep only the tourists' safe...they did not vote you in, I am a citizen of this here country and I need to be SAFE in my own country,PERIOD !
We would never have had to come to this grave crime situation not just in Johor Baru but the whole country, had there been a good system properly implemented by the powers-that-be in the first place !
Let's not just squarely put the responsibilty on the police alone but on all government agencies who are vested with the 'divine power' to prevent such occurances like the Immigration department and city or local council enforcement personnel. And here I'm not just talking about snatch thefts, but all social ills , drugs, rape, house break-ins, road-bullies, armed robbery, murders, child abuse and battered domestic violence......and all this will stop if the primary question of corruption is addressed honestly !
Now..............people, am I being labelled "unpatriotic" ?..... You decide !
