Living in Fear

I am most appalled by whatever the authorities were saying in the light of rampant escalating crimes! More like spiraling out of control crimes!! It’s almost unbelievable that such “learned” persons would say such a damn thing! Perception? Isolated cases? ONLY 9 cases of robbery and assault in shopping malls! Don’t buy expensive handbags! Now.. don’t carry handbags? Wah lao… seriously? Eat shit ah, these people?! Don’t think before saying something? With such people with prawn brains in the authority, we could only fear the worst. Instead of taking up the responsibility to do something about it (like intensify effort to catch crooks), they push the responsibilites to the people like us, and very sadly, having the “blaming the victims” mentality. This gotta stop!!

These days, whenever I get out from my house, I would be super alert, looking left and right, eyes darting everywhere to ensure no suspicious people are around. It does make me look a little schizophrenic but, I guess being paranoid could save lives.

Almost everyday, I would hear from friends and their friends about falling victims to robbers. Just two Sundays ago, my colleague fell victim to a house robbery which almost cost his life. And he didn’t even get out from the house! He was in his room, sleeping! Now, even when taking out the trash.. or doing ordinary daily tasks like sending children to school, going to the shopping mall, you can’t do it in peace!  This is getting out of hand. It’s getting really, really ridiculous.

So people, we have to decide for our immediate future. With the failures after failures of the authorities to come up with something concrete to combat the out-of-hand crimes, we must all pull together our resources and vote these people out! Don’t care if you think your one little vote means nothing. It does.. at least one vote, you could help to out vote one of the number of illegal citizens out there!

I don’t have to keep on repeating like a broken record. We must change! We need a change. A really, really BIG CHANGE!

PS. As I am thinking of what title to put for this post, I am shocked that I actually wrote the same title sometime in 2007.. regarding the escalating crimes in Selayang.. and for over 5 years, things still remain unchanged.. no.. wait.. actually it changed from bad to worse! See the post here that I wrote back in 2007! Living in Fear!

  1. The “prawn-brain” authority is good at nothing except taking bribe, finger pointing, no wonder the officials are having their waists getting bigger but their brains are shrinking…celaka!

    • Yes.. I think their waist line expanding in tandem to their shrinking brains sizes.. if they have any at the first place lah.. the way the authorities to avoiding to take up the responsibility is most shameful!

  2. Sad sad state of affairs…..

    In light of the recent crime wave, one would expect this program on RTM named 999 which highlights the ‘good work’ of our police to feature them catching armed robbers, focussing on increasing patrols, setting up more police boxes, highlighting hotspots so that the public is more vigilant, or even coming out with an advisory on how to get speedy emergency response … ??? …. Well, guess what they featured during the last program…. Late night raids into prostitute dens….Filming half naked girls…and embarrassed ‘clients’ ….. Catching people eating during Ramadan…

    God help us if this is reflective of their sense of priority … Instead we hear of ….
    * policemen harassing peaceful demonstrators;
    * policemen downplaying acts of crimes by telling victims that they are not too bad off, I.e. Not seriously hurt, not much stolen;
    * 999 telephonists responding laggardly to emergency calls
    * and in one particular case related to an armed robbery in One U, the telephonist was alleged to have scolded a caller for not speaking in Malay …

    Crime knows no bounds… Malay, Chinese, Indians are all victims…. Emergency response services should be open to all! Again, what’s the priority here… The language spoken or the crime to be reported???? I sincerely hope that what we hear or what we read are isolated cases… Or are they?

    Sorry for rambling, Gina… As you said, the pen is mightier than the sword… We must exercise our right to demand for a safer malaysia…

    • Well, I was a victim of snatch theft too and they sort of like – you didn’t get hurt what so why bother to report? Really lah. This is terrible. Just this afternoon, the traffic police is having a roadblock at the entry to DUKE highway from Selayang. They have been there since last week. I never seen them throughout the whole year except this “special” month lah.

      It’s ok lah. I understand. I am feeling the same way as you.

  3. See, if you control the illegal imigrants from Indonesia like Singapore do, Malaysia will be a much safer country like Singapore! But for political reasons, like granting citizenships to the illegal imigrants in exchange for the support of BN, that just the most filthy and disgusting policy from our boleh government, it makes our country looks very cheap. Xia xue and very lai kui!
