Why Did Lulu Gasp So Loudly When She Saw This Bit Of News on Malaysiakini?

afterall, his name has been refered to many times in many blogs.
To quote him, "it is public knowledge that I was the officer referred to in these widely sensationalised news"
but to hear it straight from the horse's mouth, to hear it from the man who is our Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director, a top ranking police officer really shocks Lulu.

And that is the way it should be.
We need to be countinuously shocked. Some things we must NEVER accept.

The revelations made in the AG reports revealing how overpriced some of the items some ministiris have purchased must shock us. Misuse and abuse of funds must be noted, and we have to make the government know that we will not tolerate these nonsense. We make our unacceptable shock known via "letters to the editor" in the newspapers and through our blogs. People's Parliament has shown us time and again how to write letters to our MP.

News that a certain person in authority, be they goverment servants or elected politicians, are corrupt must shock us. When we start becoming desensitised and accept it, it becomes a way of life in Malaysia.
The next time someone offers "help", open your eyes big-big, and look shocked. If they hold back your approvals etc, continue to visit them with big-big eyes, blind and stupid in their ways. Your ways will tire them out.

News of children abused, young lives taken away must always shock us.
We must mourn for them and their family. Then we are to look at the society around us and be determined to make changes that counts.
We are never to be desensitised to this sort of news.

Even the news that "Umno Youth will continue to use the keris as its symbol at the coming party general assembly and believes that with time the non-Malays will become de-sensitised to it."
We are never to be de-sensitised when someone waves a keris and threatens to be unhesitant about using it. Any sane man would not raise a keris in this manner in an open street. We remain concern in case some over zealous person attending the meeting takes the politician-performer seriously and uses the keris.

We have to maintain this sensitivity lest this becomes a way of life for our children.

This is the very System that NS youngsters are being psyched up to believe and the one they are to potentially defend. If Lulu is 17/18 (but is similarly aware as today)and becomes caught up in this obligation, how much unseen mental angst this would cause!

Yes, desensitization happens already and that's why overall, the quality of civic-consciousness has long declined because people despairs of the duplicitous
leadership and some weaker ones finds corruption as only a natural progression into. Hollow hypes cannot replace a gross lack of observed values from shabby leadership. A fish does rot from the head.

The FM's late dad was an out and out ultra racist politician in his days ; ask Lim Kit Siang, e.g.

Indeeds of peddling the lie that "Women Bloggers are liars", line it is self evident that racists politicians are inescapably the greatest liars.

WHO has the Right to Rights?
Even criminal should have their Rights
So he is Right!

But did he see what are People's Rights?
Rights to see Police being tight
no matter who gives a bride
and so be bright
even in the night!

He should know the procedures to fight
and not to voice for light
because he dislikes.

He may be abused
and he appeals.
Did they take the will
of the People who seek review
on what happened to the Temple
that they tried to limbo?
