About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

So, now we're in the business to shoot 15 year olds in the head

A cop shoots down a 15 year old boy in the car - in the head and multiple shots because the boy allegedly tries to run them down.

Firstly, even if he did try to run them down, there is such thing as jumping aside, shooting tyres and many other viable options than shooting someone in the head irrespective how old they are.

And the reaction after that by the chief police officer is just appalling.

Quoting Malaysiakini article below:
Inspector-general of police Musa Hassan has suggested that he would pull his men off the streets amid criticisms over Monday's shooting of 14-year-old Aminulrasyid Amzah.

"If you do not want the police to enforce the law, then say so," said the police chief, when asked for his response towards criticism by opposition parties and NGOs over the matter.

"I can tell my men to not take any action, including conduct inspections on vehicles or arrest Mat Rempit who ride without licences," he told reporters after launching a blood donation drive at the National Blood Bank in conjunction with the 203rd Police Day celebrations today.

Aminulrasyid was shot dead by police in an incident in Shah Alam at 2am, when he allegedly ignored police calls for him to stop the car that he was driving.

Having kept mum on the incident thus far, Musa blew his top and said that there was no way for the officers to know that the driver was not an adult as it was dark.

"If you refuse to stop and try to drive your way through when an officer is trying to stop you, then that vehicle is considered a weapon because it poses a danger to the life of the enforcement officer," said Musa.

Come on Musa, are you really that daft.

Yet again, another farce and fiasco.

I love Malaysia but I am afraid of the government, the police and the lawless royalties.

Take care and be well.

The idiot boy that got shot drove without license & road tax,graced a car, eluded police custody... deserved to be shot.

What about this other boy,... he was in a room, wasnt disturbing the public.. and died.. but no tears or public uproar..

Is it because that idiot boy uncles are CEO, genral and got political backup and this other boy is "ordibnary Joe"..

Who will speack up for "ordinary Joe's death" or he is forgetten..
