Oh, what has our humble Home Minister been smoking now? He was quoted in TheStar on the issue of the video clip that is being spread around showing police allegedly beating up someone in a police station. Instead of investigating into the alleged crime of police brutality, our humble Home Minister has supposedly suggested that the bad guys are the people who have uploaded and disseminated the said video clip.
I view the uploading of this slanderous and malicious video clip very seriously as it has tarnished the credibility and image of the police. This is a very irresponsible act perpetrated by unscrupulous people whose only concern is their own self-interest. They have no care about the effect of their action on society at large. It shows how low their morals and mentality are. They use websites as platforms to spread lies and tarnish the image of those they dislike.
According to the article, he has instructed the MCMC to “to act decisively against those involved in uploading a video clip on the Internet which purportedly shows the police assaulting a detainee.” He has also said that “stern action must be taken against those responsible to serve as a lesson to others.”
Seriously, man. WTF?!
I can understand that there are lies being purported by the video clip. However, any half brained ass should be able to know that it has nothing to do with TBH. Unless of course, I am the only one in this country with a brain and noticed that it was not Teoh Beng Hock in the video clip. However, this does not change the fact that this is possibly evidence of alleged police brutality.
As the Home Minister, our man Hisham, should open an inquiry into this. By not doing it, he is indirectly condoning the act and I cannot help but put the responsibility on him for all future custodial deaths. He had his moment to shine and to do the right thing by checking such actions but he lost it by politicising it. If the Home Minister supports the use of police brutality in order to coerce confessions from people, I can guarantee you that the deaths of Kugan et al, will not be the last.
You disappoint me. You come from a great political legacy. I guess that sometimes, the apple does fall far from the tree.
