saw this stupid piece of news in the Star Updates.
The opposition-led illegal gathering involving some 4,000 people ended with a memorandum being handed over to Istana Negara. The memorandum called for free and just elections.
seriously, if it was 4,000 people, do you think the police would have mobilised road blocks on Federal Highway, Sg Besi, SPRINT highway and all the major highways entering KL?
Do you think they would have deployed at least 10 FRU trucks to Masjid Negara, prepared trucks hidden in Masjid India to charge at Sogo,
Would they have had helicopters hovering above the skies in KL?
Blocked off the whole Dataran Merdeka?
Stopped the LRTs from stopping at Masjid Jamek and Central Market?
Deployed 4,000 policemen and FRU for "some 4,000" protestors?
Does this look like "some 4,000" protestors?
Maybe they mistook the 4,000 police personnel they deployed to spoil the people's appointment with the Agong.
yes! it has to be a typo.
Maybe what they meant to write was
The opposition-led illegal gathering involving some 4,000
peoplepolicemen with a memorandum being handed over to Istana Negara. The memorandum called for free and just elections.
The Star can't be out there printing misinformation like this to people who pay RM1.20 to read news. They're an honourable reputable newspaper which tells the people news. If they weren't allowed to write about the event, wouldnt the honourable Star have just not said anything about the event?
typo, it has to be a typo.
