If you want justice where do you go?
The police, of course.
If a person is missing who do you go for help?
Our neighborhood police station of course.
If your neighborhood cop cannot help you, where do you go?
If you want to know who abducted selva, who do you go to?
The guardians of the rakyat of course.
If you seek the truth, who do you go to?
The police of course.
Do we trust the police?
We have to of course.
So where should we seek truth and some semblance of hope?
The answers throughout seems to be the POLICE.
They seem to be our only hope, as we do not trust the courts!
Where then, particularly?
To Bukit Aman, the Federal Police HQ, of course.
Will we get answers from Bukit Aman?
If we don’t go to Bukit Aman, we won’t get answers.
So that’s where Boom, Rodi, d’Nightcaller and I joined Nat and close to 100 of caring Malaysians chose to go to yesterday morning.
DID WE GET OUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED?
YOU BE THE JUDGE HERE

Stand with Selva: Beaten in front of kids for testifying against cops
Saturday, October 30 · 10:00am - 12:00pm
Bukit Aman Police HQ, Lake Gardens Entrance
There were moments in this case where from the standpoint of its credibility you think that it has hit rock bottom. Think again, because there would be another moment where you hear tapping from underneath.
Sodomy II is a far way from bottom.

EARLY this morning I received this dispatch from long-missing-awol HANTU:
Musalim Tajol, Kudat Ketua Cabang was assaulted by Hasnar Ibrahim and his supporters at the airport after Anwar Ibrahim boarded AirAsia. It is believed that Musalim was not supportive of Ansari.
You are all familiar with Pekida and who owns Pekida, I am sure.
I still believe that PKR should opt out of this by-election.
“SAPP is an independent party not aligned to Pakatan or BN. It did not want to come into the Pakatan coalition or go with BN,” Anwar said.
How can SAPP go with BN when they already left BN. And what’s wrong in them being an independent party. Parti Sosialis Malaysia(PSM) is not in the Pakatan coalition and continues to be an independent party. Maybe if they are allowed to go it alone with Pakatan support they might align themselves to Pakatan.
Otherwise, Ketuanan Rakyat, sworn at Kelab Sulaiman is just an empty slogan. PKR could well reflect on Nurul’s question to Perkasa: MALAYSIA OR MALAYSAJA?
LOOES74 THROWS ZAID THIS CHALLENGE:
Guys, Don't be so sure that muslims would support PBS & hence BN win? It could be Musa Aman's move to bury PBS. Remember what UMNO say about redistribution of seats. I strongly suggest that Zaid must come up strongly in supportive of Ansari. I have already said Zaid must be magninamous. If Azmin sabo Zaid in Hulu Selangor, Zaid Ibrahim must do the christian act....To love the enemy....In ensuring Ansari's win in.....It portrays Zaid a true leader.... Zorro, Isn't that what you want? Now, Zaid must pull ranks on this. No need to harangue Azmin in leading the cause. Zaid pull it through.....The triumph is Zaid's

I have been a follower of Dato’ Mohd Ariff Sabri’s blog (SAKMONGKOL AK47.) ever since his first posting. He relentlessly hammers home one familiar theme that reminds me of what William Blake said:
“When I tell any truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do.”

8 years ago a Tamil primary school in Ladang Batu Kawan got burnt down. For the last eight years they have been promised a double story school.
Today 125 pupils study in houses of 4 estate clerks and 2 metal cabins. How much does it cost to give these kids a decent education in conducive environment.
Nothing wrong in concentrating on gifted kids. If given a chance these poor rural kids may be gifted. Can some money from the RM111million set aside for the 1st Woman’s Permata program and a wee few millions out of the RM65 millions to renovate your residence, be used to fit schools in rural areas and in the interiors of Sabah and Sarawak with electricity and water?
How much does it cost to build basic toilets for these schoolchildren, who will eventually contribute to the national economy?
Why STIGMATISED poor rural Malaysian kids?
How can the RM5 billion Warisan Merdeka help to eleviate the abject poverty in rural Semanjung, Sabah and Sarawak?
For more than 50 years roads, schools, transport, hospitals and basic infrastructure like water and power is dismally lacking in Sabah and Sarawak. Our Malaysians across the sea is literally ENSLAVED, left behind whilst we build the longest and tallest whatever in West Malaysia.
Yesterday 60,000 Malaysians on Facebook have said NO to the 100 storey tower. It is nearing 100,000 now.*
Today, we hear three clowns defend the tower at the UMNO assembly….they are in fact brown-nosing the PM:
“When the government is able to transfer all this spending to the private sector, it would mean the government saves money, which in turn would go back to the people and help solve the many problems that they face.” (Sure or not clever clown?)
Awang Adek Hussin the deputy Kelantan liaison chief and deputy Finance Minister pointed out that such projects help the people by providing many job opportunities. ( What cockamamie! Indonesians find jobs easier in KL than Sabahans and Sarawakians….I heard at a recent forum.)
“When Putrajaya first came up, they said they would sell it off. Now they are racing to take it over. (This is a shit-head, a certified village idiot who does not understand idioms…..he is BORING!)
DANG, I need to sober up at the Backyard tonight!

Allow me to take this opportunity to introduce readers to WHISTLER. In an email to me yesterday he reminded me of our meeting in August in the Oval. Of course I remember him. I recall him as being Impeccably attired with suitably contrasting suspenders (braces as the Brits would insist) and an unmistakably Kiton necktie. He sure made a statement. He endeared himself to me immediately. He may appear ostentatious but not loud or overbearing unlike one guy two tables away from us who seemed to enjoy listening to his own voice. He has an alluring dry wit that seems to complement his choice of “bone dry” Shiraz or Syrah. Dang, a spiritual man after my own heart and a veritable sommelier to boot. In a nutshell, a consummate man of the world contemplating mid 50. In between sips he intimated that he was willing to contribute to our cause for a New Malaysia. “But don’t call me Hantu. You have already 4? I am not a whistle-blower, just call me Whistler.” This is as dry as they come, no?
According to Whistler, in a bold move PM Najib is INTENDING to send a delegation to California and Russia in response to this appeal:
California Umno Club chairman Muhammad Danial Zuraidi said although there were briefings on the concept given to club leaders, none was organised for other Malaysians abroad.
Moscow Umno Club chairman Muhammad Akmal Salleh said such explanations would ensure that the concept would not be misinterpreted.
He said Malaysians residing overseas obtained most of the information on government policies, including the 1Malaysia concept, through the Internet, where their validity could be disputed.
“Actually, many of our own members and Malaysian nationals living abroad still do not understand the 1Malaysia concept, so I hope the Government or Umno can explain what is actually happening in Malaysia,” he said.
Heading the delegation would be the “I am Malay First and Malaysian next” DPM. The Deputy Prime Minister had chosen to reject the goal of 1Malaysia, by insisting that he is “Malay first” and subsequently ridiculing the concept of “Malaysian first” by saying “How can I say I'm Malaysian first and Malay second? All the Malays will shun me... and it's not proper.”
The other members of the delegation are:
AHMAD ISMAIL of Permatang Pauh “pendatang” fame.
NASIR SAFAR, dismissed special assistant to PM Najib who said the Chinese came as prostitutes and the Indians as beggars.
BTN's deputy director HANIM HUSSAIN who branded Chinese as si mata sepek and Indians as si kaki botol-
Kulai Headmistress, SITI INSHAH MANSOR, who advised that the Chinese should return to China and observed that the prayer strings tied around the necks and wrists of Indian students made them look like dogs.
The PRINCIPAL of SMK Bukit Selambau in Kedah (until now nameless) had told a group of Chinese students to go back to China when he spotted them having breakfast in the school canteen on the first day of Ramadan.
And of course………
Rapper NAMEWEE tasked with composing a rap number on 1Malaysia with verses for each member of the delegation to sing to our audience in California and Moscow.
RIDUAN TEE ABDULLAH was recommended by Perkesa but the Cabinet doubted the claim of his retreaded ethnicity. So he stays put.
Mentoring or chaperoning the delegation would be Senior Minister RAIS YATIM who as Information Minister would record the whole proceedings on YouTube.
I will have to say this. PM is ON the ball. Don’t anyone play play with his 1Malaysia ball.

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad's most recent defence of dictatorships - they can be good for you, he said - recalls a famous remark made about Italian dictator Benito Mussolini - "He made the trains run on time."
You said my book has “incited hatred against the Constitution”. This is a sick joke. Throughout my book, one consistent theme is my appeal to everyone to be faithful and to defend the Constitution. Even on the much politicized Article 153, which has been deliberately and dishonestly misinterpreted to carry out all sorts of racist agenda and therefore has attracted much misgiving, I have only words of praise for it. I quote from my article titled “The Constitution and Malay Rights” in page 27l of my book:
“The center of controversy is Article 153 of the Constitution which provides for what is popularly known as Malay ‘privileges’. Due to misrepresentation by Umno in the past, many have come to identify Article 153 – and even the entire Constitution – as racially discriminatory. This is not so. In spite of numerous constitutional amendments, the egalitarian spirit of our Constitution in respect of racial equality remains largely intact. Public misunderstanding is attributed to Umno hijacking Article 153 to practice unbridled racial discrimination for self-enrichment in the past few decades.
Why I think 1Malaysia is as good as a dead cat? The facts is just below:-
In the 1980s and 1990s, Halim Saad and Tajudin Ramli were two of Malaysia's brightest stars, picked by former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad to lead the country's ethnic Malays onto the national stage as exemplars of a new Bumiputera business culture that would catch up with the ethnic Chinese who had dominated commerce as long as Malaysia had been in existence.

In todays MT dispatch (HERE) RPK wrote:
Actually, I gave the money to Bernard a.k.a. Zorro to use in bailing out six or seven people who were arrested during the candlelight vigil in the Civic Centre in Petaling Jaya. Maybe Zorro would like to say something on this matter and name those people he bailed out.
That day was 23 January 2009, at the (old) PJ Court. 23 vigilers were arrested on 9 November 2008, the eve of the Bersih Anniversary.(HERE) YB Lim Kit Siang, Din Merican and I went to Ipoh to lend support to their first candlelight vigil organized by YB Kula, Jong and friends. It would have been 26, so we did save some money.
I was late going to court that morning but was in time to do what I was asked to do – act as bailor. Other bailors were already identified and bail money distributed to them. We had to post bail for 17 OKTs. Fr Paulinus bail was paid by his parishioners, the four DAP YBs together with lawyer Ashok Kandiah posted their own bail. I distributed money to Stephen Franicis and Danny to bail 3 each. I found out that we were short of RM450 to bail out my 3. We had to pass the hat around and most of the contributors were parishioners from Church of Divine Mercy, Shah Alam. That sorted out we had to go to the bank as required to deposit bail money.
My responsibility was to ensure the last nine get bail posted:
Thanagaran Karpayah (680811-05-5331)
Khairul Anuar bin Md, Anuar (840708-14-5515)
Ambrose Poh (640208-08-6081)
Md Fasya b Md Tajudin (811224-14-5647)
Jony bin Andu@Abu Bakar Adnan (750430-12-5077)
Raman a/l Kanniayapan (791215-14-5965)
Ong Boon Keong (601121-02-6081)
Ramish a/l Govinathan (800623-05-5215)
Henry Yap (NA)
Should anyone still feel suspicious that Pete used the money raised tolive in a bungalow (I remember it was a semi-d Tony. I remember you were there the day Pete got arrested.) and drive his daughter’s Honda, you could direct MACC to us bailors and we would readily produce the Slip Penjamin (unlaminated nor framed of course.)
Pete also wrote:
. (RM5,000 was also used to pay the bail for one Umno Blogger who is very close to Rocky and Big Dog).
Of course I remembered RM5000 was to pay bail for Syed Akbar Ali who autographed his Malaysia and the Club of Doom. The Collapse Of The Islamic Countries, on 20.11.07 when we had Mee Rebus in Maria’s home. Botak Hamid charged him over the said book.
By the way Pete, if Syed has won his case can we use the returned bail money to donate towards the confiscated Ferrari? No. not good idea. Maybe when the Police return the three notebooks confiscated from you we could donate one to replace the Ferrari, yah?
Aside: Over this Rais vs Rocky one of my readers made this comment:
Rocky Bru deserves to be penalised!!!

We bloggers may be whacking each other black and blue but when a common enemy bully we instinctively close ranks. Yes we are a very funny breed.

Have a nice weekend people. Dang, mine is gonna be very taxing – Amira’s 15th birthday lunch, Patrick Lim’s wedding dinner, Sunday Curry Lunch at Commonwealth Club with some former Sentul “thugs” and dinner with our “borrowed” son Raja Azman.
