The recently introduced Royal Malaysia Police Badge States

which roughly translates to
"Our Integrity and Best Practices "


"Raja Petra’s house was raided by the police at about 8.00am this morning, Friday, 22 August 2008. The police said they were looking for documents and any evidence related to the Statutory Declaration signed by the Burmese Doctor from Pusrawi.

The raid was is in relation to the sodomy allegation against Anwar Ibrahim where the said doctor who examined the accuser, Saiful, confirmed he could not find any evidence that the young man had been sodomised by anyone.

The police confiscated a notebook computer, a scanner and some documents and left about two hours later. Raja Petra is to report to Bukit Aman for his statement to be recorded after the Permatang Pauh by-election."

In a word the police in Malaysia are perceived by many to "PATHETIC".

At a time when Malaysia is riddled with crime, when the almost total absence of law enforcement means that the roads and highways of Malaysia are death-traps, and when thieves, robbers and bandits are virtually free to do as they like, and when house-breaking and vehicle theft are commonplace (e.g. in Shah Alam, Selangor); it is shamefully unbelievable that the Royal Malaysian Police can find so much time for so many seemingly 'politically associated petty pursuits'.

Palatial, and abnormally large police stations and quarters (e.g. at Simpang Empat, Malacca, and on Pulau Perhentian Kecil) the increased number of police personnel and vehicles have not translated into real policing and effective law enforcement.

Hey, thanks for the link, bro. I've "borrowed" your image of the new PDRM badge to embelish my post on RPK's home being raided this morning, hope you don't mind! :-)
