New vehicles for royal duty
KUALA LUMPUR: Police yesterday received 11 cars and eight superbikes worth RM5.5 million from the Johor royal family.
Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar donated two Proton Perdana, nine Holden cars and eight Harley Davidson motorcycles, which will be based at the Johor police headquarters. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar said the vehicles would be used to escort the Johor royal family.
"The police are touched that the Johor royal family is sensitive to the issue of public order and internal security, especially in their state. "We will continue to do our best to ensure that the force delivers the best possible service to the public while carrying out our duties."
Mr IGP – can you please tell me how these vehicles donated by the Johor Royal Family and to be used to “escort the Johor Royal Family” can be construed by you to indicate that the Johor Royal Family “is sensitive to the issue of public order and internal security?” Are you stupid or what?
A little bit of common sense please Mr IGP. We have seen all this before when – if my memory serves me well – the previous Sultan of Johor bought Super bikes so that they could be used to escort HIS motorcade – and the same with this situation.
It had got nothing to do with “public order or internal security” – at the most what it will do is to free police vehicles to do the work they are suppose to do – i.e. go out and ‘cari makan’ for the rank and file….and chase after suspects and criminals and then shoot them dead!
Then after that if there are still up to it – police our streets and take care of traffic and public security. We the public are sick to death of all these motorcades for the Sultans, their family, the Governors, the Prime Minister and every other so called VIPs - etc
etc...cukup lah! There are many other things more pressing that PDRM can do instead of wasting their time guarding VIPs who nobody wants to have anything to do with in the first place!
Stupid Idiots !
Jogger who gave the finger to South African presidential motorcade is hooded and detained
Lauren sez, "A 25 year old sociology student at the University of Cape Town gave the finger to the presidential motorcade as they drove past him while he was jogging. President Zuma's bodyguards pulled over, put bundled him into the car and put a bag over his head. Later he was questioned about his political affiliations (just so happens he's a card-carrying member of the ANC) and his house was searched. Democracy Fail."
Constitutional law expert Pierre de Vos said yesterday he doubted that insulting the president "would ever constitute crimen injuria". He described crimen injuria as the criminal defamation of another person by saying something without a defence for what had been said.steadyaku47 comment: Camna...anybody in Malaysia game enough to do a test case?"The president is subject to the same laws as anyone else. The president is not more important merely because he happens to be in that position."Asked whether it was legal for one person to show another the middle finger, De Vos said: "Yes, it would be completely legal. You would have been rude. It might show a lack of respect. You would not have defamed me, at best you would have been rude."If showing a middle finger was a criminal offence, half of South Africa would find themselves in prison."
