Respect for the law

Oi! Respek sikit ok?

The new Inspector-General of Police, Ismail Omar says that young Malaysians today have no respect for the police.

“We are witnessing the emergence of a new trend, the younger generation are showing disrespect and they could not care less about the law...", he said.

Wah! He really can see the trend la. But my dear IGP, that trend I think has been around for quite a number of years la. No? Okay, let's take these examples...

When a Malaysian drives past a police road block what do you think is the first thing to cross their mind?

Is it "Wah the PDRM flers doing a great job ensuring our safety."

Or is it "Nah! Cari makan again la. Hari Raya/Chinese New Year/Deepavali coming ma."

If you say it's the first reaction then I'd like to meet you and tell you about this wonderful bottle of liquid which can wash black paper into US$. Come la.

Instead of making these silly statements which impress nobody I think the IGP should try and find out why things have gotten this way and how he can rectify the situation.

Oh and En. Ismail I think you should wear your IGP uniform la. Your trying to be casual doesn't work la. Not for me la.


Oh dear!


Thank you to Pamela Lim for sharing this video with us.

PDM fit in well on this Cantonese saying: "people give you face, disgraceful cause by none other than yourself!"

We are scared of polis for the obvious reason.

By right we should feel safe when we see the polis. However, 'by left' happens all the time ...

It looks like more a trend to pass the buck and blame others for years and years.
Just look at UMNO B crooks teaching youngsters to be honest and truthful...while they are a pack of liars and cheaters.
What is the matter with all these buggers?
Well...most are not qualified and chosen by Najib to protect UMNO B and not Malaysians.
Worst of all...these are racists under the disguised as true blue non Malaysians.

Aiya, I would like to respect the law even though it is sometimes lop-sided but the blardy corrupted, ill disciplined and blatantly partial police make it so hard lah !


Anonymous said...

for them? Hahaha.. how to have respect for them? They set up the road block... to check the roadtax? They don't even look at the number plate!! How can they know whether the roadtax is valid or not? Just by the date?


CPL said...

Right in the heart of Georgetown in Penang, at KOMTAR to be precise, we have police personnel sitting under the big umbrella but people are parking their cars at the road side which is supposed to be a no parking area. This happens right in front of them

So who to blame ? Since the police dont care, who cares to respect the law ?


Hoi,new IGP,respect have to be earned and not cakap cakap saja!
Pergilah find out why people don't respect the police. Street crimes,selective questionning,abuse of power,etc....
are some of the factors you should look into!
Jangan pandai pandai cakap saja!

the best part is he wanted to 'start' tackling the mat rempit menace. HUH? WTF! What have the previous IGP being doing?

And also don't forget it is easier to catch those mat-rempit to-be along Fed Highways. They are using the main road like their grandfather's road when they hv dedicated bike lanes to use. So easy to catch and yet no one has done a single arrest / booking.

new officers say the darndest thing.

new fart said...

That's the problem isn't it? This Bolehland has time and time again turns out below-standard C.O.P over the years, bar one or two, because of the BN government's desire to only promote bootlickers instead of honest, decent and professional officers, irrespective of race, religion and gender.

Inaction on racist principals will cultivate a civil service mafia and breeds more Little Napoleans that will hamper any economic reform that Najib may want to pursue.

Another show and tell! What a crock of a statement. The younger generation bla, bla, bla....I guess when the Mat rempits first appeared in the streets and all other social ills happening here and there, our current IGP must have had his head tucked where the sun didn't shine. But what can you say, On the other hand, I have to conclude that since he is still in employment, he has to sing the 'tune'. When you kick him out like the last feller then you really hear the 'song'!. Buck up man! you are being paid to do a job, be like NIKE and JUST DO IT! NUMBNUTS!

Anonymous said...

I have to add this. The mat rempits use the highways and byways to race and everybody knows that. My question is what the hell is the Mitsubishi Evo patrol cars, Police bikes etc etc for?. To look good riding or sitting inside, eh?. Remember if you can send plain clothes cops to places of worship to spy, oops....I mean 'observe' surely YOU could obtain information on the time, dates and places these rempits will race. OR you'd rather WE do the job for you!?!?!? NUMBNUTS! Tackle, my foot! The only tackle I know is in Rugby!

Khun Pana aka johanssm said...

The NiaMah polis should stop talking about the mat rempits and other rubbish.
Lets talk of implementing the IPCMC instead.
As without the IPCMC the pdrm is in the same shit as the mat rempits.
Both are rubbish.


telur dua said...

When the IGP can't even say anything sensible and meaningful you know where this beautiful country is heading.

He should just s t f u instead embarrassing the uniform he wears.

Anonymous said...

Pat, what the new IGP says is short of telling all the parents/teachers that they are not doing their duty to educate/discipline the young.So if there is anything that turns ugly, dont blame the polis ok???

Mr.IGP. My 19 yrs old son was stopped by the police for driving with a spoiled tail light. The police asked him if he can "belanja kopi" . Now my son know why people dont respect the police.

How could we respect someone with no self-respect? Even the youngsters understand this well!

There is a pondok polis right next to Holiday Plaza shopping mall in JB notorious for selling pirated and x-rated DVDs. However the polis never take action. I heard they are given RM500 protection fees by each of the DVD vendor.

judi halal said...

Can BN honestly say that all the money used by the government for the past 50 years are 'halal' and 'clean' when building the religious infrastructures, paying Malay civil servants for all Muslim-related activities, etc?

All the taxes coming from Genting Casino, Berjaya Sports Toto, etc, are being used as subsidies, financial aid, and the never-ending help channelled to bumiputeras.

Do you think the Umno-led government differentiate between the gambling money used for non-Malays and that for Malays?

If Umno wants to make so much noise, then I challenge them not to renew Magnum, Sports Toto, Big Sweep and Genting's gambling licences.

Gua said...


Respect?! how to respect? They use road block to just cari makan or even to bring touble to us.

When some group of ppl trying to utilise their freedom to express their concerns. What those blue fellow do is to set up road block all around KL, even up to selangor and perak. Their intention... make us all pay for what suppose to be our right.

Is the real reason for the 46 days of government inaction against the two school principals for incendiary, racist and insensitive statements because they cannot be faulted as this was exactly the "official ideology" which BTN had been indoctrinating civil servants past two decades?

Anonymous said...

DPM Muhyiddin met his KPI:

• Defended the racist “brain washing” and indoctrination on “ketuanan Melayu” by Biro Tata Negara despite criticisms and expose of its racist, divisive and seditious content for the past two decades;

• Mitigated the Nasir Safar outrage claiming that it could have been “a slip of the tongue” when Najib’s senior political aide labelled Indians and Chinese in Malaysia as “pendatang”, alleging that the Chinese came as beggars and the Chinese women as “prostitutes”; claimed that Umno was solely responsible in drafting the constitution sidelining the contribution of MCA and MIC; and issued the threat to revoke the citizenship of those vocal about the subject cap for SPM examination.

• Maintained a conspicuous silence at the JAKIM (Islamic Development Department of the Prime Minister’s Office) forum at the end of January for 800 civil servants tantamount to an insurrection against Najib’s 1Malaysia concept – with government speakers making inflammatory and incendiary speeches, blaming Christians for provoking Muslim anger by challenging the ban on the use of the word “Allah” and Umno/BN politicians for failing to defend Islam, with one speaker suggesting that a repeat of the May 13 riots was possible if the Christians, whom he accused of practising “extremism” did not “back down”, uttering the threat: “Who knows, there might be a Feb. 13?”

• Also kept a conspicuous silence when the racialist rantings of Umno executive secretary Datuk Abdul Rauf Yusoh at an Umno club function in London in March this year was exposed;

• Aided and abetted the inflammatory and incendiary campaign by Umno-controlled media like Utusan Malaysia, Berita Harian, government television and radio stations, playing the race and religious cards to viciously and falsely paint Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Pakatan Rakyat Penang State Government as “anti-Malay” and “anti-Islam”; and

• Declared that he is “Malay first and Malaysian second” which is not only against Najib’s 1Malaysia concept but served as a rallying point against Najib and any meaningful flowering of the 1Malaysia concept.

Earn your respect moron, police road blocks are nothing but duit kopi.

How to respect the police and the law when the police themselves do not respect the law?? Police extorting money from the man in the street one instance and the next minute charging at a peaceful gathering of people holding candles and shouting "tangkap, tangkap". Furthermore how can the ordinary man in the street respect the law when the same PDRM can charge into the sanctity of the Perak Dewan Rakyat and arrest MPs.

Come on lah....these new PIG seems to have forgotten that respect has to be earned. Oops, I forgot that this new PIG declared publicly in the news media that he is well taught by the previous PIG.

You can see cars parked along for morning nasi lemak the then temporary Dang Wangi police station. Everyday cars struggle to exit from AKLEH but polis buat tak tahu. Now, the police station is no more there but we can still see patrol car parked the in the morning. Minum kopi?

We can see the same problem near Lebuh Ampang but there polis/DBKL damn efficient. One of the driver was telling the they are selective in enforcing depending on the area.

May I ask why police so sibuk to enforce traffic light offences in middle of the night in the most secluded area? You know I knowlah..

Hi Uncle Patrick

My friend who saw the Singtel Advertisement on MioTV (Spore Cable) said the person (grandpa in the ad) is not you but a look-alike.
Can you please resolve our argument and confirm for us if that person is indeed not you.

Thank you.

NTV7 chose to show MediaCorps's 'The Pupil' and 'Incredible Tales' but ignored gems like 'En-Bloc' starring Patrick Teoh. Why?

What about that sitcom with you and 3 daughters?

If Gurmit Singh can star in Ch 8 dramas, I think you could give it a try.

I heard a rumour that you could be starring in a malay version of 'Old Grass and Tender Grass', tackling a young Minah. True of False?

patrickteoh said...

Yes Blogger Boy. The grandpa in the Singtel commercial is me

patrickteoh said...

Hello Mami Jarum.They chose The Pupil and Incredible Tales probably because both shows had healthy ratings when shown in Singapore. En Bloc and Daddy's Girls and more recently, Red Thread unfortunately did poorly ratings-wise.

No it is not true what you heard about Old Grass and Tender Grass. Is it a Suria Channel show?

Since 1957 UMNO has effectively carried out the population engineering of our country to ensure its long-term survival by creating the myth of a two pronged “Ketuanan Melayu”. “Ketuanan Melayu” for the Malay masses who are lull into a feeling of being superior over the non-Malays because of their numbers and “Ketuanan Melayu” for the UMNO Malay political elites through the accumulation of massive material wealth for themselves and their cronies. And while UMNO has failed by almost any measure you chose to gauge them – good governance or morality – without question they have succeeded too well in the engineering of the population of this country of ours.

It seems to me that this new IGP we all know who, has taken power of PDRM to new level: to wrest, defeating, threatening and silencing any PR MP's, very able freedom voice out M'sian citizens, journalists and faithful activist. If this continues, I don't think it is feel safe and secured in any town, in M'sia under the care of PDRM. Their presents scares me with rude and no police professionalism compare to HK Policemen. PDRM is now tools of political masters, not for M'sian citizen. As a result, robbery, bag snatching and break-in any houses in any where in M'sia already seen happens. It also cost this citizen human lives by any or no reasons. I have to take care of myself more often ever since. Not only that, insecurity in this country makes us the citizens puke on it. They said "police ah.... cannot la... they can't solve those problem"

To our PM, DPM, Minsters of Parliament, MACC, The Judiciary, IGP, and AG, please correct me if I am wrong, for I am not a lawyer but just a simple Malaysian.
9 policemen of a raiding team took 20kg of dangerous drug (they openly claim)as a reward. For they intent to sell / peddle for monetary gain as their reward.
Fact #1. They are in possession of 20kg of dangerous drug.
Fact #2. They intent to sell / peddle for monetary gain.
Fact #3. Isn't the above two actions carry the death sentence!!!
Please clarify for we are confused.
How come they only had their bonus and promotion frozen, is it for one year or two years.

The "law"??? I really wanted to know what kind of law that allows the authorities to barge into one's house in the middle of the night (along with these uniformed officers as backups) and trying to take away one's dogs in someone's COMPOUND for no concrete reason, just "kami hanya menurut perintah" .

This just happened recently at my cousin's in Selayang. I might be ignorant about law thing but I knew that if it's inside one's compound, it was considered as one's private property.

Anonymous said...

9 policemen who possession 20kg of dangerous drug (with intention of reselling) should be punished with hanging according to the law since each of them has got at least 2kg of drugs with them.

But you know our polis got immunity and is always 'clean and cekap'.

Why need polis when we live in lawless society?

The country is very ‘safe’ because our government said so, so it must be true.

Do you all want to be ‘disloyal’ by frightening away all the foreign investors?

Just bite the bullet and say you are ‘very safe’. It is the patriotic thing to do.

It is also in complete compliance with the 1Malaysia concept.

By shutting up, you will help all the BN politicians and goons meet their KPIs, NKRA, NEM etc etc targets.

It will also help to even out the distortions by evening out income and wealth distribution. Ibrahim Ali will be very pleased.

Somehow, I am thinking that the new IPG is just as STUPID as the no-good/useless former one.

What you should doing is to make us believe that you have the balls by restoring the public's faith & confidence in your police force.
