Counts of human rights violations
Second, 14 people including Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching were detained outside Bricksfield Police Station for "illegal assembly".
Third, police also detained 69 Pakatan Rakyat supporters and commoners on 7th May 2009 outside the Perak State Assembly building.
Fourth, police after that crashed into the State Assembly unlawfully and dragged Speaker, YB Sivakumar away and locked him up unlawfully for hours in a small room.
Fifth, even officers of court (justice), lawyers, are not spared. Five lawayers detained outside Bricksfield Police Station when they offered legal aids to Wong Chin Huat's supporters who gathered outside the police station. The lawyers were detained for the same reason, "illegal assembly" although they were not part of the candle light vigil but merely providing legal assistances.
Even I myself were assaulted and detained by the police months ago.
These are some counts of human rights vilations that the police commited. How many out there which are not reported? I do not know but I am sure the number is countless.
And day by day, we see crime rate skyrocketing. We need more policemen and women on the street to safeguard the safety of the people, but there are always reasons given: insufficient manpower, insufficient equipment, insufficient salaries.
No doubt all these insufficiencies are true or could be true, but I think the major insufficiency that the police force faces is insufficient brain in the top management.
