Some Low Yat CCTV footage!

This is another hand-phone grab incident at Low Yat that happened on  6/7/15 ..

Different from that of the LOW YAT  Incident that led to the brawl and ensuing riots.

And it was quickly solved  by the Police and the perps were arrested!

Nonetheless,it gives an idea on how common theft like these happen in Low Yat plaza.!

But the car(Proton Wira) being wrecked and occupants attacked happened at Imbi Rd few hours

after the rioting in Bukit Bintang

.

.

As for the actual incident ..What IGP says….

————————————————————————————————————–

But coming across the YT video below, It is distressing to note that such extreme positions and viewpoints

are  being held by certain individuals of the Malay community.and the lengths they will go to coerce others to see

things from their own racial lens or to play their politics along racial lines.

The individual speaking below – a Mr . Mohd Ali Haji Baharom..sure did not help to calm things down giving such a

confrontational , inflammatory speech on the night of the Low Yat / Bkt. Bintang incident.

Besides trying to flare it into a racial issue,also tried to drag politics or racial politics – into the incident,when the person named DAP at the end of his speech.

Unsurprisingly,turns out he is another aspiring /ambitious UMNO member / politician and staunch supporter of PM Najib.
And like many of his UMNO counterparts,have similar controversial viewpoints..

.

And his speech (YT video)  and message posted from his FB, offer a small insight or glimpse of his public stance on social issues.-

“Selaku Presiden Persatuan Veteran Melayu .. Nasihat saya kpd Ts Ketua Polis Negara jangan terlalu Emosi sampai nak jaga hati Bangsa lain.. Sanggup tuduh Bangsa Sendiri bersalah secara terbuka.. Orang yang Ts tuduh (PapaGomo) belum dijatuhkan hukuman oleh Hakim didlm Mahkamah.. Adakah tindakan Ts tadi Betul ?
Bagaimana Rakyat nak hormat Ketua Polis Negara ? Sebabkan Ts tidak tahu menghormati Maruah orang lain.

.

Even the IGP is not let off hook by going after PapaGomo..

.

.

.

.

Did the speech above contributed to the flare up in violence ?

That is debatable – yet it is likely among one of the reasons.

But  for sure it did not help to calm things down..

Many other factors can be added on that may have been the causative factors.

Apart from the inflammatory speeches-,it was  coordinated with social media posting lies-

with pictures of some bloodied victim of mob violence but irresponsibly suggesting the injured person

was also the  Low Yat victim (Malay youth) beaten up by the LY workers.

It was picture like this  posted by low lifes on the blogs that enraged

many who actually believed that It was True ! But whoever this poor injured guy is – He is definitely not involved in the Low Yat incident. And nobody was injured this seriously in the Low Yat melee..!

low yat vctm

Blatant Lie ! Some blogs used this picture to claim that the Low Yat mob beat him up..

Coupled with half truths all over social media and those who chosed to believe the claims that

the guys were scammed and were sold a cloned phone and they wanted a refund.

and those who had seen the video of the melee online and saw a group of Malay youths fighting

and being overwhelmed by a mob of angry Chinese (and the picture above of an seriously injured guy )

and that was enough to enrage many which  clouded their judgment

.

that in turn led PEKIDA to respond

with a 200 strong mob -mobilized in less than 24 hours-amazing response in such short notice-

Claiming in protest ,  biased police investigation – before the case was even closed and investigation still ongoing. .

.

Perhaps the harsh lessons here PDRM can look into are -..

The racial dimension should never have been to allowed to gain traction.

and things nipped in the bud as soon as potential trouble-makers are sniffed out.

Neutralize potential instigators and assume commanding presence.

Firm stern  strong Statements by PDRM and heavier police presence in anticipation at the plaza,

With no nonsense response till investigations are concluded,may have deterred the violence..

Preventative Lessons can be learnt by PDRM from this affair…

BTW,Whatever happened to the  Datuk Bandar or even the Home Minister?

Apart from the IGP who was at the scene and the MCA youth chief and the PM issuing a brief statement..

The Mayor of KL and the Home Minister seem reservedly silent on this incident.

And even senior Goverment Ministers ,and particularly and peculiarly , noticed UMNO seem to be low keyed and muffled on this incident.

When the public would have expected more stern voices of rebuke and concerned alarmed that something

like this happened- because it is a highly sensitive incident that involves Racism which should never have happened

and which the Goverment has been harping loudly for so long- about racial tensions- or how important it is to preserve racial harmony and those who incite racism and hate-mongering- will be dealt with severely.

Or how serious the Goverment is regarding Sedition and provocateurs etc etc…..la di da… la di da…

So..what say UMNO/BN now ?

Because,there are clear elements of racial provocation – plus attempts by some in exploiting a situation that had

nought to do with race in the first place, and worst, violence that was racially charged -did happen

Whereas the Opposition has been quick to respond ,and actually making a presence at the scene .

In  a show of force with many of the high profile opposition figures from PKR-PAS-DAP in a united voice reminding

Malaysians that our society has no place for such nonsense.!

most recent thought provoking news

police-say-will-consider-guns-for-religious-enforcement-officers-

The police are prepared to consider applications for firearms for enforcement officers, including from religious department who are involved in critical and high-risk jobs.

Royal Malaysia Police Crime Prevention and Eradication Department director Datuk Ayub Yaakob said their applications would not be rejected if there was a need for them to be equipped with firearms.

“We understand their job as enforcement officers, always at risk. It cannot be denied that tools for self-defence, like firearms, are necessary

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

.

Malaysian religious enforcers carrying guns? why ? are there terrorist and religious extremist in our midst?
or the religious enforcers have to deal with armed and violent religious law breakers?

what message is being sent here? what kind of people and offences do the religious enforcers go after besides the usual Khalwat or insulting Islam culprits that they will need to be armed with guns?

Wonder what he is referring to mentioning the high risk and critical jobs in religious law enforcement?

Other law enforcement agencies requirement for firearms goes without saying and is justifiable but when it come to affairs pertaining to religion, why will there be a need to have firearms for enforcement? Unless there really is a dire / dangerous  situation that the public has not been made aware of which is connected to religion and groups in the country that they are worried about.

when there is a need for guns in pertaining to religious affairs, it is a national security issue already. we have relevant agencies for that..

it is hard to see the logic if this is implemented.

A religious teacher has been fatally shot and as a consequence ..considering allowing the use of firearms to these group for  Self defence?

Isn’t the job of the PDRM to make ensure public safety.?
Firearm possesion is a crime regardless of who you are or what organisation you belong to, gangster or religious extremist, still a criminal under jusrisdiction of police.

it is difficult to reconcile the image of religion and guns in Malaysia, we are not a middle eastern country or Africa..where the movie “machine gun preacher” was made based on a real person. Over there, firearms are everywhere and easily obtainable.

If a real threat is recognised to the religious dept, it is up to the PDRM to neutralize it b4 it gets worst
Esp when there my be firearms involved, use la the SB for once to do real police work keeping our nation safe from domestic threats instead of wasting their talents snooping on opposition.

Ulamaks with guns..Alamak..!

why-is-it-always-about-race-asks-lim-guan-eng

Lim Guan Eng (pic) slammed former information minister Tan Sri Zainuddin Maidin today for turning his criticisms of Felda buying an expensive hotel in London into a racial issue.

The Penang Chief Minister accused Zainuddin of playing the race card when the latter did not address the issue at hand.

“The problem with Umno is when they cannot give an explanation, they go back to racism. They can’t answer the two important questions I had asked.

“Why pay RM100 million more (for the hotel)? Is someone making money? Prove to us you have the expertise. Don’t turn this into a race issue,” he said in Penang when asked to comment on Zainuddin’s remarks in his blog, Zam Kata.

Zainuddin had lashed out at Lim for questioning Felda’s recent purchase of a RM500 million apartment complex cum hotel in London.

He accused Lim of looking down on the ability of the Malays to manage international hotels, and thinking that only the Chinese could do it.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

But yet if we look at it from another perspective , it is about race, unavoidably so ,  actually, it is about whether UMNO is cheating our Malaysian Malay brothers of their invested funds that they deserve , just to enrich their own selves and fatten their accounts .Are Felda funds being mismanaged , misused intentionally , paying more for the real value.?
WHat is the real situation, ? millions of RM here, money belonging to the BUMIs invested. Yes it is about race and a need for proper accounting to the malaysian Bumis to assure them that their money is not being siphoned off , from the people ostensibly managing their funds.

A pertinent question will be ” who is being paid the commisions for the multi million real estate purchases? ”

When they can’t defend, always turn into racial issue. That has always been the modus operandi of UMNO. Some day the malay community will wise up and realise that they don’t need a tainted party to tell them that they are not good enough and need protection.
There are many malays who have excelled on their own. What the malays need are genuine opportunities based on merit and not connections and such opportunities are tendered out transparently and given to all malays who qualify and not just “UMNOputras”. To continue the NEP in its current form is merely repeating mistakes and insanity (doing the same thing over again and expecting different results).
“….Everything in Malaysia is racialised when the question should be about competency, buying what is value for money and protecting public funds…..”

But UMNO is still going all out to  create the impression that ..”Questioning and pointing out the wrong doings of the government, civil service and GLCs which are predominantly helmed by the Malays would lead to public disorder and racial riots”.

That was how the Umno Baru was trying to take  Malaysians and especially the still many  gullible  Malays that are concentrated in the rural areas  as fools in their divide and rule agenda and in their ” Umno Baru For Malays” propaganda.

By the way Tan Sri Zainuddin , all the public wants to know is just simply ” why you purchased the hotel at that price, not what race you are, faham tak?”

    crime, transgression;
    formalturpitude;
    archaictrespass
    ” Ambitious politician driven to vice”

never mind the other definition..look it up yourselves but …

My goodness – look at the definitions for Vice , i swear i have nothing to do with the explanations above..

But read and visualize the words . most of them have a so familiar ring to it , that reminds us of the qualities of many of our politicians .

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

CO incidentally ..UMNO has elected their  VICE– Presidents.

Comfortable wins for Zahid, Shafie & Hisham

The official results released at 1.45am show Zahid winning 185 votes and Shafie 174.

Hisham, who is also the PM’s cousin, has 100 votes while Mukhriz garnered 91.

Ali Rustam and Isa Samad obtained 7 votes each.

“I am grateful to the grassroots leaders and members for putting their trust in me to continue the work I have been doing for the past five years,” Zahid, who had won the most number of votes, said in a statement.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

There you have it , UMNO has spoken ..Mahathir’s influence is waning..can’t buy nor count upon his old school support.

Zahid… Tough guy bully impression portraying yourself  as a gangster mentality , making racist statements and projecting yourself as a ultra Malay supremacist does pay off  afterall. Doesn’t hurt either to be occupying the very powerful Home Ministry hot seat..Power wins votes and support.  This may not sit well with Najib and Rosmah, who may feel threatened by him and that their throne is vulnerable.but they need Zahid’s ‘macho’ image and charisma to plug the weakness in Najib’s own persona.   Cousin Hisham, when he was Home Minister, had tried the tough guy image but ended up looking like a court jester, The feather in  his dunce cap h as to be  “Outlawing “Bersih”.. Surprisingly , not easy to be a bad guy  UMNO style….

But not for Ali Rustam who had used the same racist approach..wanting to champion the Malay agenda going ultra Malay but attacking the Chinese ,  stupid , I’d say..you can be a racist politician without a direct attack on others and open yourself up to retaliation without the resources to have a self defensive wall. .  He still has much to learn,  if he can survive.. but he has nothing to bring to the table…a “Has Been”. Now He can really go back to the.. “sawah padi” and talk racism to the Pa Ciks and Ma Ciks. Provided it is not harvesting season.Otherwise even they will no time time to “layan”   the fella.

Hisham..blood relations is bloody useful, Dey…direct link to the PM  and wife..”.sepupu dia itu.”Don’t play play.

Mukhriz, too bad  but do not write him off..He will be the one to watch. And when he makes a comeback..it will be with all guns blazing like a character in the movie “The Expendables”. I can see him as the dude Chuck Norris portrayed,,One man army who took on the whole terrorist bunch and blew away most of their body parts.. The lone wolf who  picks off his targets one at a time. “bang bang, just blew the guys head off, bang..! right on , there goes his guts flying everywhere.  Love this weapon” Thank you Daddy for such a nice Toy..

Shafie Abdal…Who is that ? Oh Rural minister..literally and otherwise. not interesting or controversial yet to give attention to..

Just we well he got in, other wise the Sabahans will have another excuse , Peninsular politicians look down on and  discriminate against their East Malaysian counterparts, another excuse for seceding from Malaysia and be independent..

And Isa …who…????
