Police Shooting: This Should Stop!

About 2 weeks ago, the family of C. Sugumaran had alleged that he was beaten to death by the police and some 20 others in civilian clothes.

They police have denied this and claimed instead that Sugumaran had died from a heart attack according to the autopsy report.

Now a lorry driver claims that police had shot his 22 year old wife to death in a car chase but failed to explain their action.

He said that there were 24 bullets shots on the side of the car.

A few years ago, a 14 year old Malay boy Amirulrasyid had also been gunned down in a hail of bullets. The case went to court but nobody was found guilty in the end.

He further alleged that recordings of the incident caught on a closed-circuit camera had been confiscated and 'wiped off' subsequently.

These are serious allegations.

In the light of a growing number of deaths in police custody or detention or in the course of hot pursuit, the Malaysian police force owes the public a credible explanation for all the unfortunate incidents.

We cannot afford to have a police force that act as they like without having to account for their actions.

If they have nothing to hide, they should have no qualms about agreeing to the growing calls for the establishment the IPCMC (Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission).

  1. I heard about this on the radio yesterday. It all sounds mysterious.

  2. There have been one too many unexplained deaths of persons in police detention, custody or while in hot pursuit. There are allegations that Malaysian police are sometimes too trigger happy. That is why there are calls from various parties for the URGENT setting up of an IPCMC to which the police themselves seem mysteriously unresponsive.

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...
