A Corrupt State

I am sure all Malaysians can agree with the above!

These days, Malaysian police get carried away very easily. Rather than focus on law enforcement, they get involved in politics. 

A case in point. A police briefing on crime at a primary Tamil school in Semenyih, Selangor on October 06, 2012 turned into a bashing session against Parti Sosialis Malaysia and Bersih. 

The briefing for about 70 parents and their children – mostly 12 years old and below – was organized by the local Hindu Sangam branch and SJK (T) Ladang Semenyih Parents-Teachers Association.

PSM secretary general S Arutchelvan (left) had alleged that the police told the attendees that PSM is linked to the outlawed Communist Party of Malaya; that PSM's aim is to revive the communist ideology; and that the party is under police watch.

The police also said that coalition for clean and fair elections Bersih 2.0 is a "useless activity which caused a lot of strife for the rakyat".

Arutchelvan told Malaysiakini that he had lodged a police report in order to make the police cease such activities. "I don't expect the police to investigate themselves, but this police report is to ask them to stop what they are doing," he said.

As Arutchelvan said, “I have no problems if the police want to speak on the dangers of drug abuse, crime and gangsterism… but the police crossed the line (by) twisting facts, committing slander and allowing themselves to be BN’s propaganda tool”. 

It is already bad enough for the police to allow themselves to be manipulated by UMNO but going to schools to lie to Malaysian children is abhorrent!
