Run Police Run

Imagine you were walking along a street, and 2 policemen were on patrol nearby, approximately 20 feet away.
Suddenly, a guy came up to you. With a knife pointing towards you, he asked for all the valuable things in possession - wallet, watch, mobile phone, etc.
The policemen saw this with their highly trained eyes.

Question :
What happened next?

A. They made a swift move towards the robber. In a blink of an eye, the robber was pushed to the ground and was handcuffed. You were unharmed and you thanked the policemen profusely for their valiant effort.

B. They shouted towards the robber. The robber got panicky and tried to run away. The policemen grabbed him and the robber was overpowered. He was taken to the police station after that. You were unharmed and you thanked the policemen profusely for their valiant effort.

C. They shouted towards the robber. The robber made a run for his life. The policemen chased him down the alley but the robber was much faster. In the end, the robber escaped. You remained unharmed but you nevertheless thanked the policemen for their effort.

D. They shouted at the robber. The robber turned his body and with a knife in his hand, he started chasing the police. The policemen made a run of their life, clocking 9.25 seconds in a 100m dash. The situation was captured in a camera phone by a passerby and was uploaded to youtube. The video became famous and received 1 billion hits in 1 day, thus crashing youtube site. The 2 policemen became famous and received a Tan Sri-ship for the following:-

1. Becoming the fastest person on earth (The sprint record was never broken for the next 50 years)
2. Promoting Malaysia and the Royal Police of Malaysia (PDRM) to the eye of the world.
3. For being featured in a Malaysian made video which received 1 billion hit in youtube in 1 day
4. For being featured in a Malaysian made video which crashed youtube site for the first time in history, resulting in the server being inaccessible to the world for the next 48 hours
5. For changing the motto of PDRM from "Tegas, Adil dan Berhemah" (Firm, Fair and Curteous) to "Lihat, Lari dan Selamat" (See, Run and Safe)

Now, could the answer be A, B, C or D?

Any kindergarten kids could have given the correct answer.
Just like in Moral exam papers, the answer are the one with the longest string of sentences.
No present for giving the correct answer, which is D.


Parliament: Cops scared of crooks, so base closed! (updated)


KUALA LUMPUR: A police beat base in the Chow Kit area of downtown Kuala Lumpur was closed down because it was in a location that was considered unsafe, said Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.

In a written reply to Dr Lo’ Lo’ Mohamad Ghazali (PAS-Titiwangsa), Syed Hamid said the beat base was located in a dirty area where there was a possibility of being exposed to contagious diseases.

The presence of criminals also posed a threat to the safety of police officers, he said.

Lo’ Lo’ had asked why the beat base on Jalan Haji Taib was closed considering the high number of vice-related activities in the area, as well as what kind action had been taken by the police to curb such activities.

Syed Hamid said that the police were looking for a new location to build a police beat base that would be able to give “guaranteed and continued service to the public.”

Lo’ Lo’s was the 30th question in the Order Paper and hence did not get a mention in the House during the daily one-hour Question Time. However, Dr Mohd Hatta Ramli (PAS-Kuala Krai) managed to raise it when he interjected during Azmin Ali’s (PKR-Gombak) speech during the debate on Budget 2009.

Dr Mohd Hatta said that if the police themselves felt unsafe in a beat base, then it would be even worse for the public.

“The minister has to resign if he is worried about the safety of police in that area. Maybe it would be better to put the beat base in army barracks,” he said.

Dr Mohd Hatta then managed to raise the issue again during his own debate on Budget 2009 saying that Syed Ali’s response was not rational.

“The police are there to make a place safe. If they themselves are scared and run away, then how can we hope for others to want to be there?

“It is embarassing and that is why the criminals will always be there,” he said.

Dr Mohd Hatta said if the place is dirty, then it is up to the police to organise gotong-royong activities to clean it up or if they did not want to then they should move to Putrajaya or Parliament.

“And what is this about contagious diseases on Jalan Haji Taib? The only kind of contagious diseases that are present there are sexually-transmitted ones.

“Is the minister scared that his charges will contract such diseases? That kind of thing is a matter of choice. In any case, if this is what he is worried about then we are worried that the police are not above this.”

Dr Mohd Hatta added that the police had to be brave people and that they were a different breed altogether when facing demonstrators. He said he hoped that the minister would clarify his written answer in the House as this is not the kind of police that the people want.


Thanks to Patrick for alerting this comedy script

It makes me laughed so hard after reading it.
But at the same time, I kinda feel creepy too.
I guess all the allegation (that the mob has higher authority than the police) could be true.
The country is run by mongrels after all.
Isn't it any wonder why no one show any respect to the police?
And no one give a damn to the law.

It just reinforce my thought of leaving the country. What about you?

Once I alighted at the puduraya, and i'm so terrified by the enviroment! couldn't believe the scenes of huge mass of rubbish, pondering dirty water. Man, its like all the da way to the LRT station! Malaysia Boleh!

Isn't it suprising that there is no cops presence at the beat base at these areas (pudu, chow kit, etc)?
Those sissy cops!

But the beat base below my office are always with cops. KLCC area mah. Cleaner, and not much thugs!
