Our police force has certainly brought us international shame and disrepute. The need to push for reform in the police force has never been as urgent and our conscientious law-makers, if there are any left, must respond immediately to prevent our country from suffering further international humiliation and an onslaught of international wrath.
Today, news travels faster and wider than never before meaning our tourists and foreign investment inflow will surely be adversely affected. And Malaysia being the head of the NAM and OIC will be lose its meaning if we cannot even put our own house in order.
I know of a girl who was put through the same search procedure as highlighted in the nude woman ear squat video clip now circulating all over the world. When she talks about her ordeal more than ten years later now, she still breaks down in apparent fear, despair and confusion.
I would really like to call upon all fellow Malaysians to reflect for a moment - did we, the people, empower the police force and any other enforcement agency to conduct themselves in such a senseless and inhumane manner?
I do not believe that our ministers and senior police personnel do not know about such brutality; it is just that they really do not think it was brutal. Our very own deputy IGP has already said that this type of body search was just a routine police procedure.
Can we not tell that the very organisation to whom which we entrusted to uphold law and order and to protect us has turned arrogant and insensitive, unable to even think as fair-minded compassionate human beings?
