Geramnya!! Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum dares to say snatch thefts are the public’s fault!!
The freakin’ public’s fault?!?! Tell that to the families of people who’ve died from these robberies.
THE public is partly to be blamed for snatch thefts, said Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum.
He said snatch thefts usually occurred when the victims were careless with their property.
“Such an attitude gives snatch thieves the opportunity to strike,” he said when replying to a question from Senator Siw Chun Eam.
Earlier, while replying to a question from Senator Datuk Rizuan Abd Hamid on snatch thefts, Mohamad Johari also placed the blame on women.
“Sometimes, women like to carry expensive handbags and wear clothes that invite trouble,” he said.
If I tried to fully express my anger at this, I would be tresspassing some of the limits I set out for this blog.
Unequivocally – snatch thefts do not happen because people are careless. They don’t happen because of bogeymen foreigners. Snatch thefts happen because Dtk Johari is not doing his bloody job.
I truly, truly, truly hate it when people entrusted to run our country feel that some problems are just unsolvable and don’t give a rat’s ass about even trying. It’s not our fault crime is bad, it’s yours? VOTE THESE GUYS OUT!!!!
My mother was attending a youth meeting in a residence in Taman Tun. She got out of her car, and two guys on a bike came from behind, pushed her down, slashed her, struggled to grab her handbag, and made off.
The cops were nice enough to come over quickly, take a report, etc, but that’s all they could do. The fall injuries later caused my mom’s leg severe pain, and she couldn’t walk for a few days.
When I come back late at night, my mom still comes outside to see whether it’s me or some burglar. That’s how traumatising it was.
But we’re still relatively lucky. What about those students and others who died from these robberies? Their fault for trying to get to school and back, Dtk Johari?
Deputy Home Minister Dtk Tan Chai Ho is another ignoramus who refuses to take responsibility. Useless leaders like this who just shrug and say ‘not my fault, what?’ also need to be voted out.
“Bustamente cannot issue a general statement based on one or two isolated cases,” he said, adding that Indonesian workers had a good life in Malaysia.
But Malaysian migrant rights group Tenaganita accused Tan of being “in a state of denial” over the treatment of Indonesian maids.
“Tenaganita has been receiving three cases a week of domestic workers particularly from Indonesia and Cambodia,” the group’s director Irene Fernandez said in a statement.
Complaints from maids about physical abuse include rape, and the use of electric shocks, as well as psychological abuse, she said.
“The forms of violence are getting worse, with employers believing that they can get away with it as there are no clear laws to protect domestic workers,” she said.
I also just got the full Tenaganita statement. Good for them for responding to Dtk Tan’s criminally negligent nonsense.
Demand accountability from our government! Let’s not take this bullshit sitting down!
