COMMENT | 1) The whole of central Kuala Lumpur was shut down just to save one man - MACC chief commissioner Azam Baki - from protesters calling him to step down. Wow, what an amazing show of “efficiency” by the authorities!
If only we had the same efficiency to rescue flood victims in Selangor. Or patrol our neighbourhoods to stop burglars and snatch thieves? Or patch potholes on our roads?
What does this show about the “priorities” of this government under Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob?
2) A small group of about 200 protesters caused the great government to panic so much that they sent in 1,000 police officers and men to shut down KL. Yup, there were five times more cops than protesters on Saturday (Jan 22).
If the few of them had been allowed to do their demonstration and then go home, probably few people would be talking about it now.
Instead, the overkill reaction...
