LET'S END THE BULLYING SEASON.

I take the liberty to use this quote that my Wharf buddy HawkeyeJack used in his 14 July posting: "Of fear mongering and Indoctrination" here

“Those who use force soon end up without it and those that use fear will soon fear even their own shadow” – Lao Tzu

BIG-TIME QUESTION:
HOW DO WE STOP THE BULLY TACTICS OF
THE BOTAK BOYS?

Some ideas worth pondering and nurturing:

Greetings Bernard

These fellas have really gotten us riled with this tactic of frustrating the rakyat by setting up their infernal roadblocks. I suggest we turn this around the next time by urging each other to not go out to work on the day put up such unwarranted roadblocks. Civil servants, private sector workers, bussinessmen and even students...just stay at home. You are not going anywhere on time anyway. On top of that you end up spending more in wasted petrol and wear and tear on your than you are going to be paid for that day anyway. Non jangled nerves and skyrocketin blood pressure. So relax at home and cause a strike or hartal of sorts. Shut the city down by avoiding traffic jams caused by this most insensitive governmant.

In the future, whenever the gomen says that they will be a rally, when none is planned, we all shall stage a mogok by staying at home.

Z,

Just wondering about a suggestion going round the blogs.

The next time the BN government put up roadblocks and you're stuck in the ensuing jam, get out from the vehicle, lock it and have a 30 minute teh tarik break or whatever one fancies.

For even more dramatic effect, pull up the hood to indicate 'engine failure' as a sign for others to follow suit.

Not quite certain whether it will be feasible on highways but just imagine if it's done in or near the city center. If BN can pretend there's a security risk, so can we mah!

Perhaps, there are other options if we put on our thinking caps though I rather prefer a chilled one whilst pondering on other possibilities.

Don't get mad, just get even.

Or my dear sinister buddy we could do what these german guys did during a massive jams, where no teh tarik stalls or public houses are within reach'


Or just do what these resourceful ladies do....relax, and dont move....save gas.


Dear Zorro,

Is it difficult for people like you, Haris, RPK and Malaysiakini to come up with firm and potent suggestions to all bloggers and people who get caught in these indiscriminate PRDM roadblocks what they should and shouldn't do in order to give these sleazeball politicians something that would knock some sense into their numbskulls. For example if motorists blocked at arterial roads into KL could put up their car bonnets to show their cars have stalled or overheated. If every motorist were to do that the traffic jam would be so monstrous that the lazy police chaps who put up the roadblocks would have to do their damn bit to untangle the gridlock that would have ensued. If these incidences are well orchestrated like the police roadblocks,then the Botak the Batak and his puppet masters would have to think umpteen times before coming up with roadblocks. You people might even come with some brain waves. Let us know. We are fed up with these idiots. I was caught in a massive jam along the Federal Highway for about 3 hours, going on my way to Ampang.

We can park our cars in front of the police station. Every then file a police complain on harrasment , at a cost of RM10. Cheap thrill but lets see how the police dudes work out to close the case.

A good documentary revisiting our spirit prior to independence. Many potent ideas that translate well to our time in Malaysia now. We need to find that spirit again.

I like the idea (mentioned on the video) of a GINGER group. I view these blogs, and all its commentors as well, as a ginger group: maybe not as pedas as cili, but with enough sting to get things moving.

Zorro, care to be our Captain Ginger? ;)

A very nostalgic documentary.

We should not forget our old patriotic freedom fighters who did so much for us. Without them, the will to fight would have probably died off.

While UMNO talks about Ketuanan Melayu, our old patriots at that time talk about Ketuanan Rakyat.

Pakatan Rakyat = Ketuanan Rakyat

Zorro,
My hats off to Fahmi Reza for his spectacular video. All the old footages,priceless and precious. Only today i knew about HARTAL! Probably the rakyat must voice our dissent this way ya!

pua kang kang said...

Talking about bullies, First they (Police) wanted DSAI to come to the Brickfields police station on 14.7.08 and after that they took court injuction to prevent DSAI from within 5km radius of The Parliment building. Guess what? Balai Polis Brickfield is well within the distance and how could DSAI present himself there. Now they are saying that DSAI ignored their request and goona take further serious action. So you see the defination for stupidity

woww,,,i mean wowww,,graet video..never see documentary about our country this powerful

Crankshaft said...

I agree with Shar101's comment. We need to get even.

ctannie said...

Zorro, over at Harris blog, they were discussing about doing something peaceful but EFFECTIVE. You reckon HARTAL would work, at this age and time? Just my 2-sen worth.

Bernard,

How about using the horn. Mile long noises will drwon out any police communication. Even if they try to book the vehicles in front the noise will drown out any communication. One snag - motorists need to be prepared with ear plugs.

Just a thought...

Kenyataan Media Pasca Penahanan 15 Julai 2008




KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA; JULY 17, 2008

On Saturday, 12-07-2008, the police came to my house to serve a Section 111 Criminal Procedure Code notice, harassing my family and demanding my presence at the IPK Kuala Lumpur (Federal Territories Police headquarters) at 2pm on Monday, 14-07-2008 despite an earlier agreement with my lawyers for me to come to the IPK on Monday 14-07-2008. On the next day, Sunday, the police also served an ex-parte court order, prohibiting me from physically being within 5 km from the Parliament on Monday 14-07-2008. As you can see, my house and the IPK KL are within 5 km radius from the parliament building. The court order effectively put me under house arrest on Monday and at the same time prevented me from going to the IPK.

On Monday, 14-07-2008, the presence of police personnel outside the compound of my house strengthened our suspicions that they would be prepared to arrest me as soon as I left the compound of my residence, on the pretext of me violating the court order. The issue here, is which order should I comply with, the ex-parte court order or the Section 111 notice from the police?

On the same day, the police through the Investigating Officer, one DSP Jude Pereira wrote and faxed to my lawyer at about 1.06pm, informing that I was required to be present at the IPK KL on Wednesday, 16-07-2008 at 2.00 pm to assist with the investigation. I conveyed my agreement to the appointment and it was communicated to the police through my solicitor, Messrs S.N Nair and Partners via telephone and letter on the same day.

On Wednesday, 16-07-2008, I was at the Anti Corruption Agency (BPR) head office to record my statement pursuant to the police report lodged by me at IPK Shah Alam on 01-07-2008, against the Attorney General Gani Patail and the Inspector General of Police Musa Hassan for their involvement in the fabrication of evidence way back in 1998. To ensure that we will be able to attend the appointment with the police at 2pm, we cut short our statement at the BPR’s office, and this fact was clearly conveyed to the BPR officers present.

At about 12.45 pm, the IO, DSP Jude Pereira called Mr Nair to confirm about our attendance and Mr. Nair confirmed that we would attend that 2pm appointment. We were about to have a quick lunch at my house before proceeding to the IPK. 5 minutes later, we were ambushed by a team of masked and heavily armed police personnel near my house.

I was arrested and brought to the IPK. I cooperated fully with the police by giving my cautioned statement from 2.30 pm to about 7.30 pm. At this particular point, the IO and the other officers handling this case were doing their job professionally. I was then given assurances by Assistant Commissioner of Police Razali and later Senior Assistant Commissioner II Khor (through my lawyer) that I would be released on police bail on the same day.

However, later on, upon my return from Kuala Lumpur General Hospotal (HKL), the IO, DSP Jude Pereira informed me and my lawyers that I will be detained and put in the police lock-up overnight for the purpose of recording a further statement in the morning.

I and my lawyers protested, giving our undertaking that we will be back anytime required by the police to continue with the recording of the statement, and there was no need for me to be detained overnight, and that I should be released on police bail. The police, through the IO were adamant that I should be detained and put in the police lock-up overnight, despite them knowing about my physical condition. I had to spend the night sleeping on a cold cement floor, which aggravated my back injury which was due to the beating I received from the then IGP, Tan Sri Rahim Nor on 20th September, 1998.

This morning, after a short statement that was recorded for about 30 minutes, I was released on police bail. I was in pain and had to immediately receive some medical treatment upon my return home.

I now wish to deal with the statement of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Director, Dato Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin as appeared in Utusan Malaysia today, inter alia

“Pasukan khas bertopeng polis terpaksa memintas kenderaan DSAI di Bukit Segambut di sini dan menahan Anwar ekoran tindakan Penasihat PKR itu mengubah haluan kenderaannya pada saat-saat tempoh yang diberi kepadanya untuk menyerah diri kepada polis pada pukul 2 petang ini hampir berakhir”

This is a blatant lie from the CID director to cover up their shameful act of abuse of police powers. I have given the assurances and had just informed the IO 5 minutes before the disgraceful ambush by the police through my lawyer who was with me in the same car.

In addition to the above, the Deputy Home Minister, Wan Farid said, as reported in Star Online that, I “went voluntarily to the police car without any incident.” Again, this is also a blatant lie by the government.

I take to task the IGP for this abuse of police power against me through the events I’ve narrated above. It appears that the events of the last few days, the nature of my unwarranted arrest, my overnight incarceration which was actually absolutely unnecessary, were an act of personal vengeance against me in retaliation to the reports I lodged earlier against him, which are now being investigated by the ACA.

DNA

I have reasonable grounds for having no confidence in the system. In the course of the trial of the false allegations of sodomy in 1998, DNA evidence was fabricated and used against me. The persons responsible for the fabrication then were the IGP, SAC Rodwan and the AG, are new key players in this investigation.

Until now, I have been denied access to the police report made by the accuser against me.

My accuser is still under police protection and as such, any fabrication is possible if they take my DNA. My decision to refuse a DNA test is taken through advice of my lawyers and DNA experts, both local and overseas.
