Today the Star reported that our beloved Prime Minister said that...
“The police are trying to reduce hindrances and traffic jams (that would be caused if the demonstration go on) too,” he said, adding that businesses and shops expected the police to ensure disturbances do not occur.
“But at the same time the demonstrators say police have no business disturbing them. The police have a responsibility in ensuring there is no trouble,” he said.
What a load of RUBBISH!!!
Hello!!!!! The stupid road block created a even worse hindrance and traffic jam!!! And I am sure that a lot of business were effected by this unnecessary trouble cause NOT by the opposition but by our own police!!!
And dear Pak Lah!! The only thing you have done yesterday was to ENSURE THAT THE RAKYAT WERE ALL TROUBLED!!!
Pak Lah also said...“they can scream at the top of their voice and “not at these places (in the streets) because people have the right to go about their business in peace”.
That's right!!! We have a right to go about our business in peace!!! So pls stop the police from harassing us, when we are just trying to go to work!!!!
Also in the Star article...
“We have no choice as our main concern is to maintain law and order,” said City police chief Datuk Muhammad Sabtu Osman.
While Malaysiakini reported that Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar said
The police must make sure that public order is maintained and they have done that.
Does the govt actually believe that we are all dumb enough to believe that the opposition is responsible for our trouble?!?
Can somebody tell the govt that this is a lousy tactic which is not working but will only piss everyone off and then no one will vote for them in the next GE!!!
