William Yau, Crime And Perception

I just wish that the minister who is not at home could tell us Malaysians that what had happened to little William Yau was just a perception and that the whole thing did not actually happen.

Of course Home Minister Hishamuddin could not do that, because what happened to William Yau was real and not a perception.

All that the honourable minister who should be at home could do was to throw up his hands, before the William Yau tragic incident, by saying that whether or not it was a perception crime rate was on the rise was not important.

Sure, so what is important?

Is the safety of Malaysians not important?

Or are the people to just look after their own safety while the police stand by to watch and collect their emolument and see if crime rate falls?

Despite having about a 110,000 strong force, the police are not often seen patrolling the streets anymore.

Yes, they do come out in force when Anwar is in town, or Bersih or even at one time Hindraf.

And they are there to shine the torch into your face at inconvenient road blocks at night, looking for rabbits?

Times used to be that the mata-mata (policeman) was held in high respect and parents would use him as a bogeyman to scare their naughty kids to good behaviour.

Now, if you mention the policeman, even the kids sneer at you. And others think of Kugan, Amirulrasyid, Chang Chin Te and Sugumaran.

Or Anwar's black eye.

Anwar's black eye was the infamous Mona Lisa of no less a personage than a former police chief himself!

Rahim Noor was eventually convicted and given a light sentence. And later apologised to Anwar

Now, if that was not a problem, of course, crime is a perception.

Little William Yau, rest in peace.

But tell us who caused your death.

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

Kluang RailCoffee
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...
