Wednesday, August 10, 2011 laws vs criminals

1.Riot :
a noisy, violent public disorder caused by a group or crowd of persons, as by a crowd protesting against another group, a government policy, etc., in the streets.

manifestation of grievances, support, or protest by public rallies, parades, etc
come together for common action or effort
expression or declaration of objection, disapproval, or dissent, often in opposition to something a person is powerless to prevent or avoid
Now which part of the 4 verbs and definitions above do simpletons not understand ? To compare and justify the riots in England (here) and the Malaysian BERSIH rally/protest/demonstration (here) in the same vein is utterly stupid. To say that there was violence by the protesters here in Malaysia is a blatant lie. I was there ( at least in one part of the city as you can see from the photos in the link which I snapped with my own camera !) so show me if the faces in the pictures looked thuggish or threatening in any way in any of the photographs.

The only aggression apparent here in Malaysia was the brute force of our police who for no reason and without provocation fired rounds and rounds of tear gas into peaceful marchers from all walks of life and jetted down on unarmed citizens chemical-laced water, charging into crowds to even kick, punch and beat many before arresting 1,600 in under 4 hours for being there to express and exercise their fundamental rights for a common stand as in Nos.2, 3 and 4 of the definition above and which so many arm-chair critics who were nowhere near the rally failed to understand but condemn the rally participants by reading what the government controlled media fed them.

Looking now at the scenes in London, me thinks our "trigger-happy" cops would have a field day mowing-down the unruly and wild mob of opportunistic looters with their guns and maybe would have even confiscated the "bounty" from the looters for themselves. Because English law prohibits the street cops from carrying arms but truncheons, many gangsters and looters there took advantage of the "1st world soft" approach of the bobbies and only when the situation now gets to an extremely high and dangerous level.....out comes the water-canons ! Can the same be said of our "thugs"-in-blue back home ? Here they conduct "preemptive" road-blocks and arrests days before a rally is due and frustrate the masses into believing the worst and then expect the non-participants to lay the blame on the rally-goers !

Well what can I say of the London rioters but it's a crying shame as the looters there were damn lucky we didn't dispatch our boys-in-blue immediately on Day 1 to merry old England to quell the situation sooner !

One rabid Umno blogger who I cannot mention for legal reasons is going to town with the assertion that our police were right after all in handling Bersih;s peaceful peaceful walk. Obviously this blogger has the mentality of the feral mobs in London.

The Nazi despots here want to spin and attempt to justify our cops illegally and unnecessarily firing tear fas and turning on the water cannons at Bersih 2011.

No one is fooled by their desperation.
