It is almost unreal when a friend of mine was hacked and robbed in his house over the weekend. I have yet to blog about it because I want him to be comfortable to share it first. The thing is, after the two robbers went into his house, hurt him and robbed him – they went on another robbing spree within the neighbourhood, just 30 minutes apart from each other.. and they kept robbing and robbing till they lost their parangs. I believe they were high on drugs!
This incident has kept us within the neighbourhood on our toes. We have been having sleepless nights because the robbers were bold enough to commit crimes in the morning! Why?? Because the police simply don’t give a shit! Apart from feeling sorry for you (some of them don’t even feel anything), they couldn’t do anything! They just take your report for formality, snap photos of the crime incident only after I INSISTED that they do so and left us, the unarmed and ordinary civilians to fend for ourselves.
So, what can we do?
I guess that’s what Safer Malaysia is all about. At least there are two brave individuals willing to take up the responsibilities when others failed, especially the delusional authorities who tell you, “Rising crime rate is just a perception”. These people, like each and everyone of us are fed up with the inaction of the authorities and police. We are fucking pissed off because nothing is being done!
We must come in one voice to tell the authorities – “LOOK! BUCK UP! CRIMES ARE HAPPENING AND WE ARE LIVING IN CONSTANT FEAR.” In order to achieve a developed nation, there is no point if nobody wants to live in it! Stop the rhetoric bullshit and show some results!
So, come to the candlelight vigil this coming Wednesday to show your support that, we want a safer Malaysia! Safer for everybody to live normally and not in constant fear of crimes!
