I know I shouldn’t say “I told you so” but have a read of my yesterday’s post Anti-ISA protests magnified by FRU suppressions where I voiced my personal suspicion that the government’s seemingly mindless suppression of a peaceful protest rally was at the advice (or as I suspect, instigation) of the Police. I wrote:
Sometimes I wonder how stupid the relevant ministers had been to adopt such a counter-productive (for them) tactic - but more often than that, I wonder whether the Police had sinisterly, sinuously and successfully sold those dumbos the hardline approach ... obviously to enhance their own (police) importance and to suck the (so-called) political masters (or more likely, pundee morons) into total dependence on the men in blue.
And of course the IGP gets another highly undeserved extension to his contract.
Well, today, The Malaysian Insider published Kit Siang claims IGP out to get him, Pakatan leaders which read: DAP leader Lim Kit Siang has charged that the police are looking for him and other Pakatan Rakyat leaders in connection with yesterday’s anti-ISA rally in Kuala Lumpur because it is part of Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan's personal vendetta.
"Musa Hassan is wreaking personal vengeance against me and other Pakatan Rakyat leaders for the Parliamentary Roundtable last week calling for a new IGP to create a safe Malaysia," Lim said at a Kuantan DAP branch dinner last night.
Malaysiakini reported that PKR VP Sivarasa plus the wife and son of an ISA detainee, and to other children were also in custody.
Isn't it a shocking shame that teenagers have been remanded for days (presumably because they’re threats to ‘national security’?), whilst criminals are allowed to roam the streets, thanks to the incompetence of the IGP, whose contract was unfortunately extended for two years thanks to the incompetence of AAB.
In The Malaysian Insider’s Guan Eng says cops should remand criminals and not juveniles where we read of the DAP accusing the IGP for excessive, unwarranted and inhumane police action in crushing yesterday’s anti-Internal Security Act (ISA) rally.
Lim Guan Eng urged the BN government to disassociate itself from Musa and the harsh police action.
I say again what I had blogged yesterday, the Police under this awful IGP had, and continues to sinisterly, sinuously and successfully sold those dumbos the hardline approach ... obviously to enhance their own (police) importance and to suck the (so-called) political masters (or more likely, pundee morons) into total dependence on the men in blue.
Najib should consider sacking the IGP immediately or he'll be just as incompetent as AAB.
OK, maybe I shouldn't hold my breath waiting for the sacking ... but Najib should do us all a good turn (and unlike AAB, show his competence) by not extending the IGP's contract.
