Unsafe, police beat base at Chow Kit closed!
KUALA LUMPUR, THURS: A police beat base at Jalan Haji Taib in the city was closed because its location was no longer suitable or safe, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.
The area was dirty, which could expose policemen on duty to infectious diseases as well as threats to their safety, he said in a written reply to Dr Lo Lo Mohamad Ghazali (PAS-Titiwangsa).
Syed Hamid said efforts were being made by the police to find a new location nearby to build a new beat base.
In her question, Lo’ Lo’ wanted to know actions taken by the government to address vice problems, including prostitution, at Jalan Haji Taib and Chow Kit.
She also wanted to know why the police beat base at Jalan Haji Taib was closed. - Bernama.
I hope the report from Parliament is not true, and is just ANOTHER of Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar's many JOKES.
BUT if the report is true then maybe its Defence Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's turn to pop another JOKE.
Pak Lah, maybe its time for a Military Beat Base in Chow Kit since the Home Minister thinks the street smack in the centre of Kuala Lumpur is not safe ... even for the POLICE.

p/s Remember that if your life is threatened in any way, you could always seek protection under Syed Hamid's ISA.
