Harry Fawcett, the Asia Pacific Correspondent of Al Jazeera English interviewed Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein ( on Sunday) about the ugly Bersih 3.0 riots on the streets of Kuala Lumpur (near Dataran Merdeka).
The western correspondent who works for Arab-owned Al Jazeera was focused in just highlighting the alleged 'police brutality' , a script Western journalist and wire agencies are more familiar with.
Watch/listen to the video and you'll be surprised that no mention or questions were raised on the behaviour of Bersih rioters who broke the law, damaged police vehicles and ruined public property.
The irony is that the above interview was conducted at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital after both the Home Minister and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak visited injured policemen and a pressman (casualties of Bersih) who are warded in the hospital.
From Harry's line of questioning and the way the whole Bersih rioting is portrayed by certain media organisations, it appears as though our policemen are all robots without feelings.
Is it not Bersih's brutality and deliberate provocation of the policemen on duty that brought about the water canons and showers of tear gas?
