Former Penang CPO Albert Mah still in coma

Do you remember some of these victims of heinous crimes? I have not included the Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shariibu and many other new victims here.

Crime rate is climbing up everywhere and the former Penang CPO is a new victim. Datuk Albert Mah is still in coma after a serious attack by robbers who broke into his home in Jalan Gasing, PJ two nights ago. He is now in the ICU of Universiti Hospital, PJ.  Albert Mah is a household name in Penang in the sixties and seventies. He will be always remembered as the man who came out strongly to quash any attempts of racial riots. Penang was relatively peaceful under his strong and able leadership. My friend Alfonso Ooi opines that Albert Mah made a mistake by plunging himself into politics after much persuasion of the late Tun Razak. He joined MCA and bacame the MP for Bukit Bendera for one term. In Alfonso’s words, he has given his valuable endorsement to a wrong party; a party that betrays the community it claims to represent.

Coming back to the rising crime rates, do you know that only  6,661 out of the 100,000 strong police personnels were  actually tasked to fighting crimes in the streets? The rest of the police forces are either guarding the VIPs or helping the Barisan Nasional parties to spy on opposition politicians, disrupting peaceful ceramahs and demonstrations and arresting protestors or hiding behind the trees to look for errant motorists.

According to Lim Thuan Seng (SA for Bukit Gasing), Datuk Mah’s family member called the police immediately after the robbery but the call did not get through easily and that police only arrived after some 30 minutes after the report. This is very serious and unacceptable if what was related by Lim was true (Sinchew report).

That’s why we have been asking the PDRM to restructure its forces in order to put more men and women in blues in the streets. We do not need so many FRUs and outriders and bodyguards and Special Branch undercovers watching the opposition.

While we are complaining about insufficient patrol cars on the roads, we saw many (no less than 50) brand new patrol cars parking nicely in the the compound of Selayang IPD, doing nothing but collecting dust. It appears to us that the police is seriously shorthanded at the moment and they have not been able to recruit new officers fast enough.

The PDRM seems to have no clues to improve their level of service and performance. But when the opposition politicians and the Bar Council were campaigning for the setting up of the much awaited IPCMC, we were branded as ungrateful troublemakers by the Umno-led Barisan Nasional Government.

AAB, are you still sleeping?

(If the Prime Minister of the country does not wake up,you better do. Because you and your loved ones cannot afford to  be careless, or unless you have a special team of bodyguards/ security guards at home).

Sinchew has the story…

住家進賊抗匪昏迷

(八打靈再也訊)週五(9日)在洋房遇劫的檳城前總警長拿督馬騏騮,是因為護妻心切而與匪徒糾纏中被推倒撞傷後腦,他目前還處於昏迷,情況危殆!

拿督馬騏騮受傷入院後,全國總警長丹斯里慕沙哈山和全國刑事調查總監拿督尹樹基,先後到馬大醫藥中心的加護病房探望他。
不過,尹樹基在步出病房時神色凝重,希望記者不要干擾傷者休息, 他拒絕向記者發表任何談話就離開。

子女陸續從國外返馬

馬騏騮一名從新加坡趕回來的兒子在醫院受詢時披露,父親的情況和週五一樣,依然未醒過來,情況令人感到憂心。其他4名兄弟姐妹接獲父親入院的消息,已陸續從國外返馬前往醫院探望父親。

拿督馬的逾10名親友,週六(10日)早上紛紛到醫院探望他,而行動不便的拿汀也在女傭的攙扶下,默默坐在一旁看著躺在病床上的丈夫。

彭茂桑:膽大包天
匪徒亮燈搜屋

大馬防止罪案協會中央委員拿督彭茂桑到醫院探望拿督馬後表示,幹案匪徒膽大包天,潛入屋後竟然亮燈,他們翻箱倒櫃25分鐘後掠走一批財物。”

他也說,當時拿督和另5人都在熟睡中,當拿督馬被驚醒及發現匪徒後,因擔心拿汀受到對付而極力抗匪,沒想到卻被推倒受傷昏迷。

八打靈再也警區主任馬茲蘭助理總監表示,警方接獲投報後10分鐘後趕抵現場,不過匪徒已逃逸無蹤,警方尚未逮捕任何嫌犯查辦,目前已加緊偵緝這批匪徒的下落。

這起入屋搶劫傷人案,於晨4時30分潛入加星路5/4D路,拿督馬的單層洋房造案,5名悍匪各持巴冷刀,撬破前門進入洋房行劫,刀匪過後搶去價值3萬令吉的財物。年約80的馬騏騮是大馬首位華裔州總警長。到吉隆坡出席會議之際,特別抽空到馬大醫藥中心探望馬騏騮,並對馬騏騮的遭遇感到遺憾;一同前往探訪者還包括武吉加星州議員拿督林傳盛。

許子根表示,身為檳城前總警長及前升旗山國會議員,馬騏騮是一名廣受檳州人民愛戴及尊敬的長者。

國內治安敲響警鐘

他說,馬騏騮是檳城前總警長,對住家安全十分重視,在位於靈市加星路的住家內安裝多重保安系統和措施,但還是遭人破門行竊,還因此受重傷,顯示匪徒膽大包天。

“他的遭遇再次敲響國內治安的警鐘,更顯示匪徒目無法紀、干案時凶狠殘暴,政府必須採取嚴厲的對付行動及防範措施,提高公眾的警惕。”

家屬撥不通警局熱線

另一方面,林傳盛表示,據瞭解,馬騏騮家人曾在事發時致電報警,卻履次打不通警局熱線,成功致電後,警方卻在30分鐘後才抵達現場。

他說,警方的這種低效率間接給了劫匪信心,讓他們能安心地干案,因為劫匪會覺得事主報警也沒關係,反正警方不會那麼快到或可能不到,他們可以慢慢將屋子洗劫一空。–> (星洲日報‧2007.02.10)

    Dtk Mah: Rest in peace.

    Sdr. Ronnie,

    “do you know that only 6,661,000 out of the 100,000 strong police personnels were actually tasked to fighting crimes in the streets?”

    I think there might be a typo there?
