Protect the people or protect thei boss UMNO
After reading an article from Malaysian Insider just now, being the citizen of this independent nation, I was so upset, but I am not surprised as they owed UMNO something. They owed UMNO their "pay raised" which was announced by UMNO boss last month!
The police main role is to serve the people means the servant of the people. They should not sided anyone irrespective who they are ..be they Najib, Rosmah, Taib Mahmud or even the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders.
But lately especially after the fall of UMNO in the 2008 election, the police start to supress cause fear to the PR leaders. So far their tactic has been very successful. Few PR MP have left the party and align themselves to UMNO.
The latest brutality or supressing by the police against PR leaders occurred tonight when The police moved in tonight to stop a Pakatan Rakyat public rally at the Sultan Sulaiman Club here to mark the second anniversary of the coalition’s landmark victory in Election 2008.
PKR vice-president Azmin Ali was stopped by Federal Reserve Unit riot police while delivering his speech to thousands attending the rally.
As the police approached him, Azmin told the crowd that the club belonged to the Selangor state government and was not “Umno property”.
“I call on the policemen to embrace the Pakatan Rakyat struggle,” he said to applause from the crowd.
“If we are given the mandate to take over Putrajaya, we will protect the interest of the policemen,” he added before police stopped his speech.
The action of this UMNO police could anger the public and cause them lost confidence in the police. Being the servant of the people they should not sided any party. PR should take note of this shortcoming, and to amend the Police Act to avoid police being used by governing party....Bukittunggal
Among those at the rally were PKR deputy president Senator Dr Syed Husin Ali, Penang Chief Minister and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and PAS vice-president Mahfuz Omar.
The police last night stopped a dinner organised by the DAP in Kepong, just outside the city centre.
The Pakatan Rakyat swept through four more states and captured 82 federal seats in a historic win that denied the ruling Barisan Nasional its customary two-thirds parliamentary majority.
However, Pakatan lost Perak when three lawmakers quit to be independents last year and support Barisan as the state government.
Pakatan lynchpin PKR lost three MPs and sacked another over the past month as the leadership anguished over de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy charge, the second after he was sacked as deputy prime minister in September 1998.
