MURDERED or DIED?

DO WE NEED THIS?

I count myself as a loyal citizen of this beloved country and respect the rule of law, the Government (not the Prime Minister and his goons) and the enforcement authorities including the Royal Malaysian Police.

But the latest death-in-custody of a 22 yr old car-theft crime suspect is simply so sickening that I fear such recurring cases of death-in-the-cell would leave a long-lasting scar on the Police force and the Government.

It might be of no purpose to count on the Home Minister (who is fighthing for his political survival) to handle this crisis in the police force but I'm still confident that Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan will leave no stones unturned in this probe and PUNISH THOSE RESPONSIBLE ACCORDINGLY.

Watch the video link here - LIQUID-IN-THE-LUNG-DEATH and THINK for yourself, my fellow Malaysians.

I really wonder why such stupid-acts still take place in our society ?

(The deceased, Kugan Ananthan, 22, from Puchong was arrested on 15 Jan in connection with car theft cases. He collapsed and died on 20 January at the Taipan police station in Subang Jaya.
A Serdang Hospital post-mortem revealed he died due to ‘liquid in his lungs’. The family are now seeking an independent post-mortem.) - Anil Netto.

Bro Apanama,

Sad, indeed. There have been way too many cases like Kugan's. We needed an overhaul of the police force way back then but the recommendations made by the IPCMC were never implemented, were they?

Outside the police station and the cells, we the rakyat biasa have become more vulnerable. Crime rates have shot up and with the economic troubles and hundreds of thousands of people expected to lose jobs, we can expect things to get worse.

The Government should revisit the IPCMC recommendations.

Thank yo8u.

Semoga Allah membuka hati umat Islam kita yang berfikiran dan memiliki tabiat seperti 'Barbarian' yang tidak bertamadun.
Saudara sekalian. Tioada gunanya sembahyang lima wakyu sehari-semalam jika hati busuk umpama bangkai dan akal fikiran dinodai nafsu binatang.
fikir-fikir kan sebelum membuat komen yang memalukan umat!

aku rasa polis kita telah bertungkus lumus utk menangkap pencuri kereta tu .. polis2 kita bertaruh nyawa demi membawa keadilan kepada rakyat yg mematuhi undang2 negara.
si kugen ni adalah penjenayah. sbb tu lah dia mati dlm lokap. seorang rakyat yg mematuhi undang2 tak kan mati dlm lokap. hanya penjenayah aje mati dlm lokap.
aku berharap agar anggota2 polis kita jangan takut dengan apa yg bakal menimpa mereka dek matinya seekor penjenayah yg berbahaya itu.
kuatkan tekad saudara2. insyaallah tuan2 sbg penjaga keamanan negara akan sentiasa dilindungi Allah sentiasa.

Rakyat Melayu/Islam wajarnya berdoa agar anggota2 polis kita yang bertarung nyawa menentang penjahat2 dan penjenayah2 spt kugen sentiasa dilindungi Allah dan selamat selalu. Anggota2 polis ini mereka mempunyai keluarga untuk ditanggung. Keselamatan diri mereka adalah sangat penting.

Does anyone still recollect how images of an incident back in 1992 shocked an American nation?
That visual and ensuing trial led to street riots throughout Los Angeles… the truncheon assault on Rodney King.
I am not at liberty to establish if that recording was ever aired over local networks, irrespective whether an obvious slant prevails amongst the mainstream print and electronic media, but truth be told… and be damned.
That incident may have taken place in the far away land “of the brave and free”. But, don’t for a single moment renege from the fact the high profile police beating of Rodney King was not an isolated incident, nor did it’s public disclosure decrease the cases of police brutality in the United States.
Other incidents (to mention a few) since then include the New Jersey Turnpike and Stanton Crew, and Amadou Diallo shootings in New York, and Philadelphia Donta Dawson shootings.
Like the Rodney King incident, had it not been for the “citizen, ambush, advocacy and video” type journalism – the chief purveyors of information and opinion in your society today – I am of the view, this Kurgan’s death would have simply been filed to remain a mere statistic.
Having spoken to concerned stakeholders, and a quick browse of rights violation portals, Lee Quad Long, Tony Samy (amongst the few) should refresh memories of investigators, lawyers (some now turned legislators) and medical examiners. There are even those who may consider these names definitely are a jinxed and taboo issue within the walls of police headquarters, where like in the US, “to serve, and protect” and “commitment, professionalism and respect”, is supposed to echo out loud.
So like Rodney King, revelations of Samy and LQL dawns the realization for a web browser like myself police brutality can and does occur (with regularity?) even in this rapidly developing nation.
As frightening as the situation may seem to be, and the malaise which beleaguered the police department, should one be amazed if such cases remain undocumented.
So now with this Kurgan case, can one be blamed when posers are raised whether corroborating each other's false stories would be a tactic put to play now that visuals of “tampered bodies” are uploaded.
And why was there physical abuse, if indeed, in the first place? Is it true supervising officers not only knew of these alleged actions, but also condoned such behavior?
This recent wave of negative exposure does not augur well for a police department undergoing recovery from “scalds” of corruption, lackadaisical policing and increased criminal activity.
So its only natural the clarion call for an oversight committee can not but be at the highest decibel now, and for the police department, to defend itself, and (taking a cue from Tammy Wynette) to “Stand By Your Man”.
But hold em horses there, and can we not take on this buckaroo banzai shoot from the hip approach.
Who said it was murder…? And what has that scalded bloke got to do with that EAR (Extort After Rage) gang which terrorized business expatriates in the city’s uptown district.
Why is everyone shooting off banter, and getting their foot into their facial cavities? Let sciences both forensic and otherwise unravel the mysteries, and good hard detective snooping solve them cases.
The cop walking the beat must be given latitude to do his job.
And let crime watch groups continue their role as it has been acknowledged they have an important role to play because police brutality receives hardly any or almost no exposure (even in the media) unless… there’s another statistic?
It is one of the most dangerous professions, and like in the US, your boys in blue do put their lives on the line each day… maybe not to the magnitude of their brother offices in Los Angeles, Washington or the Big Apple.
Speak to any victim of crime in your country, and one can conclude criminals are increasingly turning violent. To further heighten ones’ fears, the wide array of weapons, especially the machete, at the perps’ disposal also does not augur well.
But depending from whom one elicits a view, does an increasingly violent criminal nature and abundance of weapons justify the use of force to uphold law and order.
Here is where you, the man on the street - the taxpayer - must play a role. Taxes, albeit a small percentage, contributes to a law enforcement official’s monthly takings. And it is from that podium, society must look down and hold them accountable for their actions.
On that blue uniform, they don that badge of integrity and have taken the oath to serve and protect, not only you, but also expatriates like me.
“The issue is national in scope and reaches people all across this country. For too many people, especially in minority communities, the trust that is so essential to effective policing does not exist because residents believe that police have used excessive force, that law enforcement is too aggressive, that law enforcement is biased, disrespectful, and unfair." – former United States Attorney General Janet Reno speaking on police brutality at a National Press Club luncheon in Washington DC in 1999.
Maybe one can take a cue from www.policebrutality.com or www.policecrimes.com.

Actually what the police should do is serve tea. Maybe earl gray and scones. He will gladly take the police to all the stolen cars.
