The Police in Malaysia
Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said that The Malaysian Police have been rated the best in Asean by an international body but he did not name the international body which had given the rating, or furnish any other details.
“I myself do not believe that the police have cut down the national crime rate by 47% in the past eight years,” Lim said, before asking why more and more ministers and Barisan Nasional MPs are guarded and surrounded by more security personnel than eight years ago.

CID chief’s case not an isolated incident, claims DAP rep
Bukit Aman CID chief Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd is not the only police officer whose finances have come into question after sending their children to study abroad, claimed Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng.
Lim said that several people, including a police officer, had relayed to him imformation of a police station chief in Kuala Lumpur who had managed to send several children abroad to study, without any form of financial assistance.
The DAP lawmaker did not disclose more details on the allegation, but urged the MACC and Bukit Aman to see him for more information, so they can commence investigations on said police station chief.
“I was told that this is not an isolated case of a police personnel sending his children abroad.
“There is at least one other who is a police station chief – not a chief in Bukit Aman but a mere police station chief in Kuala Lumpur – who was able to send his children abroad to study.
“Is his salary enough? Does it tally? I want the MACC and Bukit Aman to investigate,” he told a press conference outside the central police headquarters this morning.

Three cops suspected of robbing family in Perak
IPOH, Dec 28 — A 43-year-old police inspector, two lance-corporals aged 35 and 27 and a 32-year-old jobless man have been arrested on suspicion of robbing a family in Kampung Rapat at about 2am yesterday.
The quartet is believed to be part of six-man gang that stole RM12,300 in cash from the family and have been remanded for six days starting today.
Ipoh deputy police chief Superintendent Abdul Rani Alias confirmed the arrests, saying the three suspected policemen were nabbed in separate locations around Ipoh between 12pm and 3pm yesterday.
He said police seized a black MPV vehicle and RM1,500 in cash, believed to be part of the stolen money, during the arrests.
According to Abdul Rani, the gang had carried out the 2am robbery by pretending to carry out a drug bust.
“We believe they told the victims that substances believed to be drugs were found in the house.
“They would then enter the house before demanding money from the victims.
“They would tell the victims that this money would ensure that the victims would not be brought to the police station. However, no weapons were used,” Abdul Rani said in a WhatsApp text message.

Special Branch duo among four held for robbery
PETALING JAYA, Nov 25 — A group of four, including three policemen, have been remanded for an alleged robbery of an insurance agent in Rawang.
The three, all 30, were an inspector and a detective at the Dang Wangi Special Branch office and a closed-circuit television control centre officer attached to the Gombak district police headquarters.
The fourth accomplice, a 34-year-old man, is believed to be an aide to a Selangor politician.
Selangor CID chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said the two Special Branch officers will remain in custody until the end of today.
“The officer from Gombak will be under remand until Sunday (tomorrow), and the fourth suspect until Monday,” he said.
The suspects were arrested in separate operations between Nov 17 and Nov 22.
In the incident, it is learnt three of the four suspects had gone to the insurance agent’s premises in Batu 17 and introduced themselves to the 51-year-old victim as policemen.
One of them kept watch at the door while two others demanded for the victim’s identification card and all the cash in the office, claiming it needed to be examined.
They then told the victim he was needed at the police station immediately.
As the victim entered his office at the rear to get his belongings, the suspects fled with RM4,000, a mobile phone, and the victim’s and his wife’s identification cards.
The insurance agent, who managed to jot down the registration number of the policemen’s car, lodged a police report. He also provided descriptions of the suspects.

Kit Siang mocks Zahid over ‘best police force’ remark
PETALING JAYA: Lim Kit Siang has called for Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi not to stick to mere rhetoric in declaring that the Malaysian police force is the best in Asean, but to prove it as well.
The DAP supremo was referring to comments made by Zahid, who is also home minister, when giving a speech at the Addressing Perception on Safety and Security forum in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
“The Royal Malaysian Police, according to the ratings is acknowledged as the best police in Asean.
“This is an international recognition but what is the perception? In my estimation only 20% are positive about the police,” Zahid reportedly told the audience, but did not name the international body which accorded such recognition.
The DAP parliamentary leader also offered three suggestions to Zahid that would help improve the perception, and even make Malaysians believe we have the best police force in Asean.
“First, declare it the police force’s mission to make Malaysia the safest place in the world.
“Secondly, submit annual police reports to Parliament, and thirdly, set up a Parliamentary Select committee on Police which will have the responsibility to oversee police matters,” Lim said in a statement today.
Many in disbelief that Malaysia’s cops rated best in Asean
PETALING JAYA: Many are in disbelief that the Malaysian police force has been rated the best in Asean, as recently revealed by an international body.
Lawyers for Liberty executive director Eric Paulsen said the ranking was nothing to shout about considering that the yardstick was the police forces of other Asean countries.
“I would certainly question that recognition, and I think that you are not comparing yourself with the standard you aspire to be,” Paulsen told FMT.
He also said it was hard to believe that Malaysia was rated higher than its neighbour, Singapore.
Yesterday, Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi announced that the Malaysian police had been rated the best in Asean by an international body. However, Zahid, who is also deputy prime minister, did not reveal the body or give further details about the criteria for the rating.
Commenting on Zahid’s statement, Suaram executive director Sevan Doraisamy said the ranking was not something to be proud of as there were several under-developed countries in Asean.
He said it was hard to believe that Malaysia had such a high ranking when there were so many deaths in custody, most of which are unsolved to this day.
Suaram’s report on May 26, 2016 stated that from 2013 to April 30, 2016, a total of 721 prisoners had died in custody, an average of 18 deaths in custody a month.
Meanwhile Amnesty International Malaysia executive director Shamini Darshini said she was curious as to how the crime rate in the country was calculated as it did not tally with actual occurrences.
She noted Zahid’s comment that the crime rate in Malaysia had gone down by 47%, but that only 20% of the public had a positive view on police crime prevention.
No basis for Zahid’s best police in Asean comment, say lawyers
PETALING JAYA: Human rights lawyers have expressed their disbelief over Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s statement yesterday, that an international body had rated the Malaysian police force as the best in Asean.
“Can Zahid tell us which so-called international body said this? (It’s) quite hard to believe,” lawyer Latheefa Koya said in a text message to FMT today.
Zahid, who is also the home minister, did not name the international body which had given the rating, or furnish any other details to back the statement he made at the “Addressing Perception on Safety and Security” forum yesterday.
Her PKR colleague, Padang Serai MP N Surendran said Zahid’s claim has “no real basis”.
This is because human rights violations such as deaths in police custody are still prevalent in the country, he said.
“Deaths in custody continue to plague the police force, and there is no evidence of serious efforts being made to deal with it.
“Instead, top police officers and ministers are quick to defend the cops when death in custody occurs,” he told FMT, citing the revelations into the death of 44-year-old car theft suspect, S Balamurugan, as an example.
Lawyer P Uthayakumar supported Surendran’s statement, telling FMT that the reality didn’t tally with what Zahid had said.
“Over the years, there have been many cases of enforced disappearances, custodial deaths and police abuse.
“So how can the deputy prime minister say that the country is safe, and that the crime rates have gone down?”

KUALA LUMPUR: A police lance corporal sustained severe injuries when he was involved in an accident following a high-speed chase in Puchong early today.

Police again viewed as most corrupt in transparency survey
KUALA LUMPUR: The police force is yet again perceived as the most corrupt institution in the country.
About 57% of the 1,009 Malaysian participants of Transparency-International Malaysia’s (TI-M) Global Corruption Barometer (GCB) survey felt the police department was the most corrupt.
The survey results also showed that 13% of respondents who had encountered the police in the past had paid a bribe to the men and women in blue.
Akhbar was speaking at the release of the survey results here.
The 1,009 respondents polled were asked “How many of the following people/institutions do you think are involved in corruption”.
They were also asked to state if they had ever paid a bribe to, among others, the police, court officers, and public health care institutions.
However, this year’s GCB showed an improvement in the percentage of people who felt the police department was the most corrupt, compared with the previous survey conducted in 2013. Then, three quarters or 76% of the 1,000 Malaysian respondents had viewed the police as the most corrupt.
The other institutions that were also perceived as corrupt were the “tax officials” such as the Finance Ministry and local government tax collectors (48%), local government councillors (48%), business executives (46%), and government officials (45%).

Constable tries to jump ATM queue by flashing police badge – unfortunately, to off-duty senior police officer
According to an English news daily, the constable then demanded to use the ATM machine, located at Publika Solaris, first.

The senior officer alerted the mall’s auxiliary police, and the suspect was promptly located and arrested.
The story would end there, if not for the fact that an investigation revealed that the constable has four criminal records, two acquired before joining the force, and two after. The offences include criminal intimidation and cheating, reported the daily.

Last updated on 13 October 2016 – 11:56pm
TAWAU: A police corporal risked life and limb to dive into a muddy river from a bridge to arrest a fleeing suspected drug dealer in Tanjung Batu Laut near here today.
In the noon incident at Log Pond, the policeman, from the Tawau Narcotics Division overpowered the 22-year-old suspect following a struggle with the man in the river.
Seized from the suspect was a package containing four small packets of syabu.

In a statement here, he said the suspect had injured his right leg when he leapt from the bridge into the river to escape arrest.
PETALING JAYA, Oct 13 — Eight policemen, including five on their crime beat, were rounded up for drinking ‘ketum’ and gambling at a food stall in an open-air car park in broad daylight yesterday.
A source told Malay Mail the eight policemen, regulars at the food stall at Jalan PJS8/15 in Bandar Sunway, were arrested at about 2pm.
A lance corporal believed to be attached to the Sungai Way police station managed to escape.
“A senior colleague, who had seen the suspects gambling at the stall in the past, had advised them to get their act together and warned he would report them if they did it again,” the source said.
The eight — two corporals, five lance corporals and a constable — were nabbed along with two other men believed to be friends of one of the policemen.
“Some of the men looked high when police moved in on them. What is shocking is they were brazenly drinking ketum and gambling in a heavily populated area,” the source said.
“There were other customers at the stall during the raid.”
Police are looking for the lance corporal who escaped.

Pada 10/04/2016 jam lebih kurang 1.00 pagi, seorang pelajar berusia 15 tahun yang merupakan tahanan di Lokap Bersepadu Jinjang (mangsa) telah diarahkan oleh seorang anggota polis (suspek) untuk menyapu sampah di luar sel. Kemudian mangsa telah diberi rokok dan suspek arahkan mangsa menghisap rokok di lorong pili air.
Sewaktu mangsa menghisap rokok, suspek telah datang dan terus memegang kemaluan mangsa. Suspek kemudian melutut dan menghisap kemaluan mangsa dan turut menelan air mani mangsa. Kerana takut, mangsa membiarkan sahaja perlakuan suspek.
Setelah selesai, mangsa disuruh kembali semula ke dalam lokap. Mangsa kemudian menceritakan kejadian ini kepada Pegawai Penyiasat kesnya dan disuruh membuat laporan polis.
Hasil siasatan awal polis, terdapat lagi dua mangsa lain yang hampir sama kejadian seperti ini melibatkan suspek yang sama. Namun dua mangsa lain itu hanya disuruh melakukan onani di hadapan suspek.
MyWatch menggesa PDRM segera menahan suspek yang terlibat kerana tindakannya langsung tidak ada dalam SOP. Malah tindakannya mencemarkan integriti PDRM. Juga sekalung syabas kepada Pegawai Penyiasat yang memberikan kerjasama kepada mangsa dan menasihatkan mangsa membuat laporan polis. Ketelusan Pegawai Penyiasat sebegini wajar mendapat pujian.

In the latest effort to combat obesity, a new programme called Trim N Fit was launched yesterday and 35 “chubby” personnel and officers from the federal police’s management department have been selected to participate.
“It’s a pilot project to ensure that policemen stay fit during their service. Our main task is to enforce the law and maintain public order. Therefore, we need our men to always be fit.”
“So far, we have about 11,000 obese personnel and officers but that’s only a conservative number,” he said, adding that they expected change within two to three years.

IGP denies saying state police chiefs investigated by MACC
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 18 — Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu denied saying there were state police chiefs being investigated by the Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), as was reported by an English daily today.
“What I said to reporters yesterday was that all senior police officers, including myself, can be investigated by MACC, and I never confirmed of some police chiefs being investigated by MACC for corruption,” he added.
He believed the reporter concerned had misunderstood what he said.
“I hope they correct the news,” he told a media conference on the “Balik Kampung Ops Selamat 6/2015” campaign held in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration at the Jalan Duta toll plaza here.
Khalid said if any of the state police chiefs were involved in corruption, he, himself, would take action against them.
“As it is, until today, there is no case of corruption involving state police chief,” he added.

30 police shirts stolen from laundrette
SUBANG JAYA: Some 30 police shirts, many stitched with the names of high-ranking officers, have been stolen from a laundry shop here.
Police who are investigating the theft, fear that the apparel could end up being used for ill intent. They have warned the public to be wary of men posing as police officers.
The shirts, while not official police uniforms, still feature the forces’ insignia and is grey and black in colour.
Rohana Muhd Bakri, the owner of the laundry shop along Jalan Musytari Am in Section U5, said police were her regular customers and sent about 30 “corporate shirts” for washing this month.
“On Feb 8, my worker came to open the shop in the morning and found that our door had been pried open. Nothing was taken, just the bag with the police shirts.
“I know how the shirts could be misused so I lodged a report right away,” she told The Star.
Rohana said the bag contained shirts and jackets with the first names of high-ranking police officers from Bukit Aman, and the Subang Jaya, Kajang and Shah Alam police headquarters, stitched on them.
WHEN ONCE WASN’T ENOUGH FOR THE POLICE OFFICER!
The victim thought everything was over the officer kept on calling her over the following few days, demanding she have sex with him again.
That second demand was one time too many. She reported him.
Malay Mail Online
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 2 — A private college student will never forget having sex with her boyfriend in his car recently, but for all the wrong reasons.
While in the middle of their tryst, they were caught red-handed by two police officers, one of whom took full advantage of the situation.
One of the police officers forced the student, 19, to perform oral sex on him, subsequently raped her in a public toilet and forced her to give him RM500.
The police officers involved are attached to the Kota Damansara mobile patrol vehicle (MPV) unit and have since been arrested.
The incident took place last Monday, when the victim went out for a date with her boyfriend who is in his 20s.
A police source told Malay Mail that after their outing, the student’s boyfriend parked his car at a secluded area in Section 10, Kota Damansara.
“The couple started having sex in the car but their act caught the attention of two police officers on crime prevention rounds,” the source said.
He said the victim and her boyfriend were both naked when the two officers approached them.
The policemen told the couple they would be arrested and taken to Kota Damansara police station for behaving inappropriately in a public place.
The couple panicked and begged the policemen to let them off with a warning.
“One of the officers handcuffed the girl and took her into the MPV, while his accomplice took the boyfriend in his car,” he said.
The source said as they drove towards the police station the college student continued begging to be let off the hook.
“Seeing this as an opportunity, the policeman demanded RM2,000 from the victim,” the source said.
“When she agreed, he asked her to have sex with him.”
The victim stood her ground and told the officer that she would not.

Two cops to be remanded for allegedly raping college student
PETALING JAYA: Two cops are expected to be hauled to the PJ magistrate’s court Monday for allegedly raping and blackmailing a 19-year-old college student, police have confirmed.
The teen lodged a report on Saturday, claiming that the two officers had caught her and her boyfriend having sex in a car in Kota Damansara on Jan 26, and proceeded to take advantage of her.
The student claimed that on the same day, she received a call from the officer who allegedly demanded payment of the bribe.
ACP Azmi said the girl alleged that the officer drove her to a nearby mall, after picking her up from her hostel, and forced her to perform oral sex on him in his car.
“She said he later took her to a toilet in the mall and raped her. He said if she didn’t do as he asked, he would arrest her,” ACP Azmi said.
According to the victim’s report, the officer didn’t stop there. The girl claimed the man has been calling her up the past week to demand sex again.
GEORGE TOWN: A traffic policeman on duty was all riled up after a participant of the annual Penang Rainbow Run threw coloured powder at him here today.
The policeman, who was monitoring the traffic during the charity run at Padang Polo here, did not realise his shirt and pants were tainted initially until a passer-by alerted him.
He was visibly angry and shouted repeatedly when he discovered patches of fuschia and purple all over his uniform.
Its organiser Ben Tan said the incident was unintentional, as the participants threw coloured powder at one another in the event observed worldwide.
“We do not know who threw the coloured powder at the policemen.
“The participants threw the powder on one another during the run, I am sure the participant did not aim the powder at the policeman,” Tan said contacted by the New Straits Times.
Tan said the incident had caused a brief stir among the participants when the policeman ticked off the organiser.
TO CALM THE RAGING BEAST IN YOU WHEN YOU ARE STOPPED FOR A TRAFFIC OFFENCE, THEY OFFER YOU BEAUTY?
Hopefully with Beauty smiling at you, you will respond better and accept the summons.
PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – Traffic police in Malaysia are trying a “softer” approach by having an all-women enforcement team to man roadblocks.
The new Traffic Women Estimable Enforcement Team (Tweet) comprises six officers and is the first all-women traffic patrol team in the country.
PJ Traffic Police chief Deputy Supt Mohamad Roy Suhaimi Sarif said having an all-female team may improve situations at roadblocks psychologically.
“We have had complaints that perhaps male officers were too aggressive or intimidated motorists while some motorists refused to cooperate, even when officers just wanted to give them a warning, rather than a summons. They reacted defensively or tried to instigate officers.
“This doesn’t lead to very professional enforcement,” he said.
KUALA LUMPUR: A police inspector who engaged a prostitute’s service at a spa, here, landed himself in trouble after lodging a report that he lost RM1,550 during the act.
The officer, attached to the city police headquarters’ Internal Security and Public Order Department, had called the Dang Wangi headquarters’ operations room about 3am to request for assistance to find the money, which he alleged had been stolen by the prostitute.
The source said the officer then requested for the case to be reported officially.
The report furnished by the officer was detailed, right down to how much he paid for the services of the prostitute as he did not want to use a condom.
“After they finished (having sex), the complainant (the inspector) went to a toilet to wash up. After putting on his clothes, he walked away from the room before realising that his cash kept in a pocket had gone missing.”
A COMPASSIONATE MAN
City police chief Datuk Tajuddin Md Isa confirmed that police received the report.
He said the inspector was believed to have been mentally unstable after being in a coma for three months in 2012 following a road accident.
“I know that this incident has gone viral in social media, and I am not denying that it had taken place. However, I would like to make it clear about something, that this officer is not a bad person, as we believe that he did what he did due to the mental disorder from which he was suffering.”
Tajuddin said they did not have the heart to sack the officer, despite the troubles he has created, as the man would lose his source of income.
“I actually took pity on him… his mental problem is serious, so much so that it even tore his marriage apart. We are discussing with the federal headquarters, and I will bring this matter up to the Inspector-General of Police to decide.”
The division’s principal assistant director, Senior Assistant Commissioner Roslee Chik, told the New Straits Times that he was alerted about the arrest of the officer, whom he had considered his “right-hand man”.
KUALA LUMPUR:A SENIOR Bukit Aman officer with the rank of assistant commissioner of police has been detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission for alleged involvement in money laundering. The officer, in his mid 50s, was formerly a state Criminal Investigation Department chief.
It is understood that the officer had received a transfer order from the inspector-general of police about a month ago to the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Department. However, he had sought a deferment of his transfer and asked for two weeks’ leave to attend to his ailing wife.
Sources said graft busters found RM170,000 in a bag he was carrying when he was picked up in an undisclosed location. Following his arrest, they raided his house and recovered RM300,000 in one of the rooms.
Sources added that MACC had evidence to show that he was involved in money laundering.

The police have formed a new branch called the Integrity and Standard Compliance Department (JIPS) to act against corrupt or negligent police officers, The Star reported today.
Modelled after the New York Police Department’s Internal Affairs Bureau, JIPS officers have the power to raid police stations and conduct random tests to weed out errant cops.
“Some in the force will not like it, but it is time that we take a look at ourselves and change what needs to be changed,” first director Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Zubaidah Md Ismail told the English daily.
She said that with JIPS, police could now fight corruption through proactive measures rather than wait for a public complaint to be lodged.
“Prevention is better than cure. Before JIPS, we used the reactive approach by only taking action when a complaint is made,” she told The Star.

Judge opens fire on ‘executioner’ cops http://bit.ly/1vTrl50
The Court of Appeal today awarded the family of a shooting victim RM351,000 and lambasted the police for acting as “executioners” in self-defence.
In overturning the Shah Alam High Court judgment, Justice Hamid Sultan Abu Backer ruled that the police cannot shoot to kill suspected criminals.
“It is trite law of Malaysia that the federal constitution does not permit police officers to kill suspected and/or dreaded criminals by fake encounters.
“The police are paid through public funds with a primary duty to arrest criminals and put them for trial.
“They cannot be allowed to roam trigger-happy as this will be in violation of rule of law and the relevant authorities must seriously check such violation,” Justice Hamid said.
..Abd Jaffar, a car repossessor, who was seated on the front passenger seat of a Proton Waja, was killed by a team of police Special Action Unit who shot the deceased six times in Shah Alam on Sept 2, 2008 at 10am after the car was blocked by the authorities.
In overturning the Shah Alam High Court decision, Jusfice Hamid Sultan outlined its weaknesses and laid out the facts of the case, where police in their defence claimed that a shot was fired from Abd Jaffar’s car, resulting in the police to shoot.
Different serial numbers
Despite a gun being found in the Proton Waja, no gun residue was found on Abd Jaffar.
There was also conflicting testimony by the police witnesses as to the gun recovered – a Steyr M9 A1 – where one police officer testified that it has a serial number of MOO 2893 but the chemist who examined the gun gave a different serial number of M00 2895.
“Hence, this glaring error, which was never explained, casts suspicion on whether the gun was recovered from the car or whether the gun was placed in the car after the police had shot the deceased,” Justice Hamid Sultan noted.
“The police are paid through public funds with a primary duty to arrest criminals and put them for trial. They cannot be allowed to roam trigger happy as this will be in violation of the rule of law and the relevant authorities must seriously check such violations,” Justice Hamid said in his 31-page judgment.
“It is trite that the police force has not been endowed with ‘executioner’ powers in the pretext of self-defence,” he said.

Court awards RM351,000 to children of car repossessor allegedly shot by police
PUTRAJAYA: Three daughters of a man who was allegedly shot dead by police, were awarded a sum of RM351,000 in damages by the Court of Appeal which allowed their claim for loss of dependency due to the wrongful death of their father.
A three-member panel led by Justice Datuk Linton Albert unanimously allowed the appeal brought by the three girls, Nurasmira Maulat Abdul Jaffar, Siti Asma Abdul Jaffar and Siti Fatimah Abdul Jaffar, to reverse a High Court’s dismissal of their civil suit against the Inspector-General of Police, the Government and a police officer, ASP Ong Seng Keong.
The two other judges were Datuk Hamid Sultan Abu Backer and Vernon Ong Lam Kiat.
The panel awarded RM51,000 in damages for loss of dependency and RM300,000 in exemplary damages, as well as RM50,000 in costs for the proceedings at the Court of Appeal and High Court to the girls aged 15, 8 and 7 years who through their mother, Abra Bibi Shahul Hamid, brought the suit against the police for allegedly causing the wrongful death of their father, Abdul Jaafar Abdul Mutalib, 38.
“What is reprehensible and needs to be condemned are fake encounters as the facts of the instant case shows prima facie and the failure of the relevant authorities to discipline such officers and worse still, claim self-defence under the Police Act which has no relevancy to the killing,” Justice Hamid added.
He said the senior federal counsel who represented the respondents had also failed to bring to the court’s attention any law that giving powers to the police and the right to shoot on sight or any law relating to self-defence or fulfilment of any Special Operating Procedure.
“Section 24 of the Police Act 1967 has nothing to do with self-defence to exonerate liability from unlawful killing,” he said, adding that this section also did not give the police any power to kill.
Justice Hamid said the courts had a constitutional duty to deal with “police excesses” and to provide the necessary input or directions for appropriate action by the relevant authorities to ensure the rule of law was maintained at all times.

Suspect nabbed in high-speed chase claims to be ‘Datuk’ to avoid arrest http://dlvr.it/77HcjX
KUALA LUMPUR: “You can’t arrest me, I’m a Datuk!” exclaimed a suspect as he was being cuffed by police after a high-speed chase from Nilai to Serdang, early Monday morning.

He said the four-man patrol team sounded their vehicle’s siren and flashed its beacon lights to try to get the suspect’s car to stop.
He said a patrol team from Serdang intercepted the suspect’s car when it took a turn into Universiti Putra Malaysia.
“The officers came out with guns drawn and directed the driver in the car to step out and lie on the ground. As the officers were placing handcuffs on the suspect, he claimed to be a ‘Datuk’ and that he worked at a law firm and was friends with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim,” said Supt Mohd Yusoff, who added that police believe the suspect was trying to lie his way out of being arrested.
He said the two other passengers in the Mercedes then came out of the vehicle to film the incident on their smartphones, claiming that police were “provoking them”.

BIGGEST JOKE: Top cop loses GUN while having lunch
PETALING JAYA – “Do what I say, don’t do what I do.”
That best described the incident that befell a senior anti-narcotics police officer, attached to Bukit Aman’s intelligence and operations unit, after his bag with a laptop was stolen from his car as he was having lunch at a restaurant in Jalan Gombak.
His not so intelligent act of leaving his bag unattended left him red-faced as the 43-year-old officer lost not only his laptop, but a Walther P99 semi-automatic pistol and 10 bullets.
Sources said the incident happened yesterday after the officer met another investigating officer at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters over a drug-related case.
“The officer and his partner were in an unmarked Proton Preve. The car is usually used during stake outs by narcotics officers. The incident happened when they stopped at Jalan Gombak before returning to Bukit Aman,” the source said.
He said the officer had parked along the roadside at 1.45pm and when he returned at 2.20pm, the rear windscreen was smashed.
“The officer looked for his laptop bag but it was no where to be seen.”
He also lost his Pulapol and Bukit Aman security pass cards that were also in the bag.

SINGAPOREAN IS DISGUSTED BY HIS EXPERIENCE WITH MALAYSIAN POLICE! Read his story and the comments at the end in this report by The Real Singapore.
“U can’t condemn the whole Malaysia for these 2 scumbags..”
DEAR TRS, THIS IS WHY MALAYSIA POLICE IS THE MOST CORRUPTED AND UNETHICAL!
Dear The Real Singapore,
I beg u share this with your readers.. U see… I got pulled over by these 2 idiots… They told me it’s an offence to drive in Malaysia without an International License.. ASEAN countries driving license is permitted to drive in Malaysia with the license of origin… They revealed their colors.. Ask me pay kopi money to solve the problem…
Firstly, I did not even commit a mistake and that I was allowed by law to drive on Malaysia Roads.. I told them to issue me a summon… Then!! They issue me a parking summon for parking.. They pulled me over… And that is why I stopped… I am assuming that since they didn’t get my kopi money, they gave me 2 summons… So, for all the good food, beautiful memories u have produced for me and my offroad adventures, this sucks… I would pay a kopi money, if I have committed an offence, more than happy to in fact… But this one..
What did I honestly do in the name of the law I was faulted for?? They took 20 mins to write 2 simple piece of summon.. Probably hoping that I would change my mind to give in for bribe. Not all Malaysian Law Enforcers are like these 2 Arseholes… There are good guys.. But all u need is 2 clowns to bring the good name down. Here’s the last part…. One of them told me this… “Crossing the border to JB don’t need International License, but driving in KL needs one”… Word for word… So, I politely asked if there’s some treaty signed for this?
That I can drive in JB without an international license but all else in Malaysia, I would require 1… No reply… If I appealed, and I am still at fault, i’ll pay. Integrity is what I am talking about.. Would I come back to Malaysia again? Of course I would.. It’s a beautiful place…
This is the summon they gave me, I think it says I am driving without a license. My malay pals please help me translate:
How did I not have a license? I drove since 2003.. Apparently they didn’t even state International License….

In one case, tow car company operator Ngiam Kee Buh told the press that his employee at the scene had told him that there were three police officers stationed at a Ramadan market near the scene of the accident.
It purportedly involved a Proton Wira colliding into three cars parked illegally on a flyover, after its driver Lee Keng Long tried to avoid a vehicle in front of him that suddenly switched into his lane.
The police allegedly failed to act when a mob descended on the driver, but only stood by idly after being shoved aside by the attackers.
He added that his employee has declined to speak publicly about the accident that took place in the wee hours of July 26 in Klang, at the Kota Klang roundabout.

ONLY BAD COPS THIS TIME…
Thugs in uniform
FMT LETTER: From: W. Fernandez via e-mail
Last week, I witnessed two traffic policemen punching and beating up a foreign worker in the ‘old town’ area of Ampang.
The incident took place in the vicinity of the Ampang police station at a traffic check point. Members of the public who witnessed the event were dumbstruck, watching our law enforcement personnel taking the law into their own hands.
Outriders of VVIPs are no better. They bully other road users to give way to their entourage. On several occasions I have witnessed these outriders blatantly breaking traffic rules to the extent of causing danger to other road users. It’s a shame that these VVIPs do not caution or advise their outriders to take extra care to ensure the safety of others. Yet again these traffic and police outriders see themselves as being above the law.
