Seven Shooting Incidents in under 3 Months

I have not blogged about shooting crimes for some time. That doesn’t mean Malaysia’s crime index has fallen. On the contrary, methinks the situation has not gotten better.  

When you are looking down the barrel of a gun and that person who wields it pulls the trigger – you know death is just seconds away. If you somehow survive, you can consider yourself very lucky that you have cheated death.
 
This post throws the spotlight on seven reported shootings in under three months – 5 deaths and 5 wounded.
 
A 32-year-old real estate agent was gunned down by two unknown men while driving with her five children and her maid in KL’s Taman OUG at about 2.30 PM yesterday. One child, a girl aged 8, was hit by a stray bullet and is in a critical condition. Five shots were fired.

On July 04, a 42-year-old woman and her three children escaped injury when a gunman fired 12 shots at their house in Taman Bukit Desa, Seremban in Negeri Sembilan.
 
On June 29, during morning rush hour traffic, a 40-year-old  manager survived six gunshots from unidentified motorcyclists at KM3.5 of the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban highway.

On June 21, two motorists were fired upon as they waited for the lights at the intersection of the main road with Sunway Batu Caves at about noon. Witnesses saw a man alighting from a car to approach a yellow Proton Satria car, opened the door and aimed at the driver. Then, the same man went to a white Suzuki car, opened the door and again, shot the driver.
 
Activist Bill Kayong was shot dead at close range at a traffic light junction in Jalan Kuala Baram near Lutong in Miri – also on June 21.
 
Just six days earlier, a businessperson died after being hit by six out of 10 shots fired by an unidentified motorcyclist at the Sungai Rasau toll plaza in Selangor.
 
And on April 15, two men were shot dead while another escaped unhurt when two motorcyclists fired at their Toyota Land Cruiser along Jalan Kolam, near the Petronas petrol station, in Foh Sang, Luyang in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
 
Malaysia is not safe anymore!
 
I saw Mujahidin Zulkiffli’s posting today which he posted yesterday on Facebook:
