AAB praised former Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Bakri Omar, at an event to honour Bakri, as one of the most efficient leaders who brought the police force to greater heights.
Please excuse me while I puke.
Wasn’t this the IGP under whose tenure saw some of the worst police excesses, including abuses, corruption and numerous deaths in custody.
See my previous postings of police abuses:
(1) Malaysia's own Abu Ghraib
(2) Police Inquiry to chase trees & not see woods
(3) Shoot the Messenger!
(4) Bald & Naked Truth of Malaysian Police
(5) Most Dangerous Place in Malaysia!
Then see my analyses of the terrible RMP and its hopeless head, the IGP:
(6) Problem of the Royal Malaysian Police
(7) Police leopard in 'appropriate attire'!
(8) KTemoc's advice to Police
(9) Axe the clueless IGP!
(10) IGP versus PM
(11) Lim KS to PM: "Gotta Guts to Gut IGP?"
Wasn’t this also the IGP who proselytised his non-Muslim female police officers by forcing them to wear the tudung on parade, very much against their constitutional rights, on the baseless argument that it’s merely for uniformity, when turbaned Sikhs in the RMP have for decades not appeared out of place with their non-Sikh colleagues nor were non-Sikh police personnel required to wear turbans for ‘uniformity.
That’s the quality of the former IGP – he couldn’t even bullsh*t convincingly. But this was the IGP who exploited an Islamic apparel purely for political reasons, to curry favour with the UMNO MPs so as to ‘soften’ them up to take his (IGP) side against the IPCMC.
(12) Policewomen forced to wear tudungs on parade!
This was the IGP who breached every civil service procedures by openly and unashamedly turning the police force into a politically oriented service in telling UMNO MPs that if the IPCMC was established, the police couldn’t ensure the Barisan Nasional’s position in power.
(13) Police undermined PM's decision
(14) Siapa Raja? (2)
(15) Royal Malaysian Police Warns UMNO!
(16) Wish IGP was Japanese!
But the most disappointing factor that has emerged from the PM’s totally unjustified praise of this unmitigated poor performing public servant, a man who had on a number of occasions actually and publicly defied and gone against the PM/Internal Security Minister, a man who had led the RMP into the deepest reaches of dark dungeons, is the signal that AAB has no real interest or lacks the will or backbone to change the ugly ferocious beast that is the Royal Malaysian Police.
Malaysia Boleh, where we celebrate failing!
