The authorities continue to tell us that crime rates are falling. But Malaysian don't feel assured.
If a chief minister's safety cannot be assured, what can we ordinary Malaysians expect?
Lim Guang Eng, Penang's chief minister, claimed that he was roughed up yesterday by a member of Perkasa, the Malay right wing group, at theTeluk Bahang market in Penang, while the police just stood by and watched without doing anything to stop or arrest the culprit.
Also check out the Malaysian Insider report.
Now, this is bad. How are we ordinary Malaysians to feel safe if the authorities won't lift a finger to help a chief minister in distress and at risk of assault and harm in full view of them?
Is there no law and order anymore? Or are we Malaysians to assume that the law applies only to certain people and not to others?
Perkasa seem to be a privileged lot. They seem to be able to get away with a lot of things they do that others won't be able to.
And as if to give the lie to the claim that crime rates have gone done, here's news. and here's news
