Got robbery ah? Wait ah...after this song ok?
In The Sun today the Home Minister is still saying that the crime rate we are experiencing these days is merely public perception. In the story he said "public perception of crime is “all important” – and more important than the crime index". But he did make one concession la. He admitted, “For me what is most important is not so much the index, it is the perception. The feeling of the public is all important.”
Yes, the feeling of the public is all important. And so what does Hishammuddin Hussein, the man in charge of our country's security do?
He goes on a walkabout in a shopping mall!!!
Almost everyday we read about snatch thefts, armed robberies in broad daylight, ATM thefts, car hijacks, murders, kidnappings. And what does the Home Minister do to "REASSURE" us? He goes and visits a shopping mall's mobile police station, the information counter. And he also inspects the mall's alarm system installed in the parking lot.
Well, pardon me all over the fucking place Mr. Minister. I feel so secure now after what you just did for me. And did you take the opportunity to pick up a couple of things on sale at the mall? For the wife and kids? Did you go listen to the police band that was playing at the mall instead of policing the streets?
I think you doing your job as Home Minister is just a perception too. You're not really there, right? Sorry. Wrong use of words. You're not so much a perception. You're just an illusion.
