Ah got police presence d crime rate go down kan?

On page N31 of today's Star there is a very funny story which is headlined......

Nothing particularly rib-tickling in that headline but the sentence under that is hilarious......

Cop's presence in hotspots reduce the index by 13.2% this year

Apparently, the big policeman said that "the presence of policemen in crime hotspots has resulted in the reduction of the national crime index by 13.2% in the first two months of this year compared to last year."

And so as a tax-paying member of the Rakyat i would like to know if that meant that previous to this policemen were not present in crime hotspots? And if these were identifiable crime hotspots why was there no police presence until now?

Wait ah....got some more funny stuff. The IGP also said that the marine operations force had excelled. I don't know la but there is an accompanying photo showing officers of the Marine Assault Team storming a beach in an exercise somewhere. Look at the photo (below). What's wrong with it? Don't know? Black uniforms against white sand! I reckon it would take an enemy sniper all of 6.1 seconds to take out all the 6 goondu's there. No? So they can't be that good to excel at anything if they can't ever cover their asses.


The Star Metro reports today that the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board (CVLB) has come out with a set of rules for taxis.

I am sure that most of you have noticed this new sign that our taxi's are carrying as the result of a new rule from the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board.

THIS IS A METERED TAXI HAGGLING IS PROHIBITED REQUEST FOR YOUR RECEIPT

Now as a consumer and an irregular taxi user I want to know this. Why the fuck is the CVLB telling US???!!! Just like so many government departments the CVLB seems to have gotten the equation wrong.

WE want to use metered taxis. WE don't want to haggle! It's the fucking taxi drivers who do not want to use the meters and want to charge exorbitant prices. So, go tell those fuckers!

The CVLB thinks this sticker is going to make all the difference in curing Kuala Lumpur's taxi over-charging menace. And the Star headline even says "Stickers tell users not to haggle with cabbies". It's as if WE were the cause of the problem in the first place. Oh how this rule has been used so effective the past 50 years eh?

And finally, Najib announced today that police personnel will be AUTOMATICALLY promoted. He said that personnel with the ranks of constable to corporal who will enjoy promotions based on a time-based service scheme. Which basically means that whatever the fuck you do IF you stay long enough you will go UP the scale. In the scheme a constable would be promoted to lance corporal after three years’ service and a lance corporal would be promoted to corporal after five years’ service. So what is that supposed to do? Make the police more efficient? Less prone to corruption? I don't think so. Do you?


NIAMAH!!!

Yes, what took them so long. They will be in the hotspot for awhile. Than what happen?.The coolspots will become hotspots again once their presence is gone. Anyway keep up the good works.

Is this automatic promotion criteria possible.There will come a time when the population of constables, corporal, sargeants, etc. will be almost equal in number. This will be a ridiculous situation. I thought that they are going to practice promotion based on merits. Patrick, if everyone is promoted to the top post than corruption can be reduced. Just a joke. Those in higher power can cover their ass better, so the corruption index will also drop. Ah! ha!. That means the corruption agency must show their presence in the hotspot of corruption. They will difinitely help the corruption index to drop by covering the as.... of ..... you know lah!.

Singapore got meritocracy we got equal opportunity Malaysian style; ie you do well we promote you, you corrupt and hopeless, we also promote you sooner or later, aint this soooo very fair and good. We will become "developed" nation very soon.

Policy makers graduated primary 6 or not????

I've never heard of anyone trying to haggle with a taxi driver before and if they did it's probably because the driver is trying to charge a ludicrous rate. Why are they putting the blame on the consumers??

I think the automatic promotion scheme in the police force is wrong. I doubt it'll improve the efficiency of the police force. But I guess it's a token of appreciation by Najib for a job well done to rid the opposition.c

That would mean,if no more people joining police force, and after 3 years, you can't see any constable on the street, all are lance corporal already.

Or instead of pyramid hierarchy, Najib is going to create his 1Malaysia Twin Tower hierarchy of police force.

Totally agreed with you on the CVLB's upside down logic. When I walked past a couple of taxis recently I thought "Huh? teh blardy taxi drivers feeling threatened arh?" The sticker should be stuck right at teh driver's dashboard to remind him that "This is a meter-taxi, Thou shall not haggle with the client, Thou shall turn on the meter (untempered of course!) and Thou shall receive the just fare at the end of the ride. KNN!

Aiyah bro Pat, don't get so worked up reading the daily news in bolehland. Treat everything as normal in bolehland. When a joke is repeated everyday, we don't laugh anymore, we say F it and wake up ! If the highly paid good-for-nothings don't get it, there is nothing you or I can do. I packed up long ago.

My question is - Has the crime rate gone down bcos the on-duty policemen now cannot go thieving ? Can someone in the know tell me.

As to the masked men in black against a sea of white, I feel they are actually pirates. Why cover your face if you are doing something legal ? Ninjas they are not. Storming a beach - What the hell for ? Try storming a boat.

Promotion without merit is nothing new or surprising. It has been going on since time immemorial, otherwise how do you account for the dunggu professors and judges !? Najib just made it official

Malaysia semua boleh.

Linlaubu................!

Bro PT
Police
If memory serves me right. There was once the police "dare" not go to Jalan Chow Kit side. Ha Ha.
Taxis.
Generally unscrupulous taxis drivers have given a bad stigma and rightly, not much has changed since to improve. It is all down to consistent enforcement and ....if need be, hang the bloody license and then they have no livelihood as taxi drivers. Besides they already have another present vocation as blackmailers and thugs already
Police promotion.
Well, you hit the hammer on the nail. You stay long enough, you may even be IGP. Ha Ha

Najib need the 'support' of the polis so badly for the obvious reason, to counter the '3rd force' that Musa has hinted. Looks like the Mongolian ghost is warning Najib 'jangan pandang belakang'.

The government of Najib Razak sees Mr Anwar as a threat and has been trying to wreck his political career, using a variety of tactics. Aside from the criminal charges that have been brought against the opposition leader, Mr Anwar has been crudely smeared as a tool of “Jewish” interests. Asked once whether Mr Anwar would make a good prime minister, Mahathir Mohammad, the former prime minister of Malaysia, replied: “He would make a good prime minister of Israel.” A modern state should be ashamed of exploiting racism and homophobia to head off a legitimate political challenge.

But it is not just the Malaysian government that deserves to be chastised. Malaysia is an important market and an influential voice in the Islamic world. As a result, western governments that claim to place human rights at the centre of their foreign policy have been very circumspect in their comments on the Anwar trial. Respect for the courts, for national sovereignty and for cultural difference are all worthy ideas. But sometimes, it is important to speak clearly. The trial of Anwar Ibrahim is a disgrace and an embarrassment to Malaysia.

I will just continue to makan rasuah as I know for sure that I'll be promoted! Thank you so much Najib for caring! You're the best PM (Pakar Makan) we've ever had. No niamah today, just Yippeee!!!

Even if the police says crime has gone down..my brother had his car broken into with the windscreen smashed and car door pried open all this happened near a restoran in Sri petaling...
after fixing is
2 months later the car was stolen
Every time i go to some ppl house there's always cases of mugging, robbery theft ..you name it ...
How r we suppose to agree...
to be honest it's scary to drive walk or go out in the street in kl...
just a matter of when will it be our turn

Ho ho ho said...

CVLB only knows how to make statements but cannot enforce. Penang is a good example. Taxis still refused to use meters. Bone shaking buses still all over and not following rules. CVLB used to give excuses. Lucky thing, Federal Government in 2007 started Rapid Penang.

Playing with figures to self-justify and self-brag is nothing new here (Enron and Lehman Brothers in the making?).We still see innocent lives being lost to criminals daily. Suasana yang aman dan damai of yesteryears is still far far away.

The automatic promotion is sure silly. Now, who in their right mind would work harder, let alone risking their lives to go after criminals ?

The "ninja" exercise? Biasalah di sini, GAYA matters!!! Just look at all those "VIPs" keluar masuk Parlimen, bukan main smart dengan kot dan tie dan briefcase. Tapi bila buka mulut, kosong aje!!!

White Dog said...

When the nos of summons goes down, the cops will say they work hard to reduce it. When the summons goes up, they will say they work very very hard that's why they issue more summons!

Our country always blame the victims and protect the pepetrators! That CLVB fella should have been sacked long long time ago. After few decades also cannot solve taxi problems. Once, he said he got no more solutions already! Still can stay there! Oh..now auto promotion somemore. WTF!

Yup, crime rate has gone down.......to the other side of town, NUMBNUTS! Police presence made a difference in the crime rate... yeah sure if you actually mean from the low life that used to control the area to the government paid 'datuks'. Hey tell you what, give me a gun, a uniform and an authority card. No pay, it's ok I can cari makan on my own.

Please note that the KPI only focus on 'STREET crime'.

If you house is not along a street, but just a 'Lorong', then the polis does not guarantee!

Lots of sympathy for them lah - they must have fried in their black uniforms! Did they come from the non-sub submarine? Damn impressive though - be scared ... really really scared! Hahaha!

Patrick,

I think it's a knack of yours rubbishing people over smallest matters. You rubbish people over matters of rubbish importance. You yourself are rubbish for thinking that you are so much better than the people that you rubbish. I'm quite appalled by your antics, because usually people mature with age. The same cannot be said about you.

Who is the moron who trained the Maritime Assault Team. Any military fanboys would know NOT to file out like that in 2 perfectly straight lines and all guns pointing at the same direction. Turkey shoot, anyone?

Hey Patrick,
I like the part about the Marine storming the beach. Very original. Almost fell off the chair reading that line! haha!

I am preplexed. Constable to Corporal is to be a promotion? Then the rank of Chief Inspector is a promotion too? It is, to the best of my understanding, an advancement when one holding the rank has reached the maximum of the Inspector's salary scale. This is just so confounding la.
