Amok In Putrajaya: Crime Rates Falling - True Or Not?

Malaysians desperately want to believe the authorities' assurance that crime rates are falling. But if the daily reports of crimes in the newspapers are anything to go by, we don't feel assured.

What about the crimes that go unreported?

Star 10 July 2012
In just yesterday's Star newspaper, there were several crime items.

There was the report that an unidentified gunman had fired ten shots at a businessman's bungalow in Subang Jaya. Luckily no one was reported to have been killed or injured in the incident.


Then there was the report that parts of a decomposed human body was found in a drain in Damansara Jaya. We won't want to speculate whether the victim was brutally murdered in the first place.


Then there was the headline news of a couple who allegedly went amok, brandishing samurai swords near the PM's Department in Putrajaya, damaging some cars and even briefly holding a police man hostage before being shot by the authorities. 


The man was said to have been shot on the arm and the woman on the thigh but the man apparently died 15 minutes later after being rushed to the Putrajaya Hospital.


How bad can it get, for a crime to happen so close to the PM's Department itself. 


And what were the couple hoping to achieve going amok near the PM's Department. 


What grievance were they hoping to address?


It is scary what is going on.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
