For the Bersih march, the police started their roadblocks and screening of all cars and busses on roads leading to KL on Friday night. This went on till Saturday evening, causing big time traffic jams and "millions of ringgit" loss in business for traders in the Jln Alor area.
Today is only Thurday. and the police have started their roadblocks against the Hindraf Rally which is scheduled to take place outside the British High Comm on Sunday.
This is really getting ridiculous.
Malaysiakini, at 2:45pm, reported
Selangor Traffic and Public Order Department chief Supt Che Hussain Che Omar, when contacted, said roadblocks have been set up in all 12 districts in Selangor.The report is substantiated by the forumers at usj.com.my who reported blocks in Damansara, near eastin hotel and NPE heading towards Old Klang Road.
“It is for crime prevention. We have placed roadblocks in all major strategic area this morning. When it will end depends on the situation. We still study the situation,” he said.
Roadblocks were spotted on several highways including the Silk Highway (from Kajang and Semenyih to Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya), near Sungai Ramal, Sungai Besi Highway (photo) and Sungai Way on the Federal Highway.
So how? Two weeks ago, people were not allowed to wear yellow into KL.
This weekend, the Indian community are not allowed into KL? Is that what police are screening for in the name of "crime prevention"?
and who knows.. maybe on Wednesday or Thurday, we'll see one of the MIC fellas do a "Doktor Ayam" stunt supported by traders from Lebuh Ampang.
It's amazing how the police force can be mobilised to this effort, but unable to make headway in reducing crime in this country.
