Yes I'm talking about the hundreds of snatch thefts reported daily and even more that go unreported !
What has the police done to curb this menace that happens everyday in the streets of Malaysia ? Everday you hear of victims of snatch-thefts in serious conditions in hospital and deaths in the newspaper..... You have done NOTHING.....zip...ziltch...zero, if you ask me ! I can bet my bottom ringgit, there is NO one in this country who does not know a person or persons who has been a victim or victims of a snatch-theft !
What can the policemen, sitting on their arses in their air-conditioned patrol cars, do if they see 2 vermins snatching someone's bag right in front of them ? Do you think they can apprehend these shit-heads on the motor-bike making a desperate escape weaving through traffic and narrow lanes (which are normally blocked by some inconsiderate moron's car parked there), giving these snatch-thieves another success point in their raid on innocents ?
Time and time again the frustrated and concerned joe-public has written and complained and suggested to the top cop morons ways to combat this menace and to send their beat-base personnel in twos, on motor-bikes around high snatch-thefts prone areas. Nay, instead they spend millions to purchase high powered patrol cars to catch crooks on the highways. What percentage is that compared to snatch-thefts in every city and town, huh ? Can somebody tell me ? No high powered police patrol car is ever going to get their crooks on a humble "kapchai" on the streets of traffic chocking Kuala Lumpur, Georgetown, Johor Baru, Ipoh, Klang or even Taiping ! No way, siree !
Again I say here, Mr. Top Cop, equip your men with high-powered "kapchais" and save the nation a bundle and the streets a safer place ! Don't try and educate us on the do's and don't's of safe passage. We know all there is to know, okay ? Place CCTV cameras in all places and areas where commuters gather, whether it is at the cross junction or bus-station, commuter stations or shopping areas AND link them directly to the nearest police station with "dedicated and honest" police personnel manning them 24hours/7days a week ! And these won't costs as much as your state-of -the -art vehicles which are almost always parked at "mamak" stalls 24/7 !
Mr. IGP, don't be ashamed to take advice from the public, in fact you should be honoured to get affirmative feed-back from the public, because they matter , yes ? They are the ones who pay your salaries every month, yes ?
The presence of your men, whether in muftis or in uniform are never "felt" in any place where the public are gathered like in traffic-lights, commuter stations, shopping complexes and bus terminals, but are always and surely "felt" at peaceful gatherings, rallies and candle-light vigils....why ? Have they nothing better to do ? Like cruising the streets ON MOTOR-BIKES, looking-out for snatch-theives or other law-breakers ? Is it not your duty to keep these places safe for the public from such vandalising scumbags on motor-bikes ??
Now you know why our good and holy out-going PM is pissed-off with the "corruption is king" tag-line, stuck to this country of ours !
In the words of pasquale...."no cheers today"!
