Malaysia's crime is serious!

Note: The article was first published on The Malaysian Insider.

Satu persoalan di sini, apakah sesuatu situasi itu hanya dikatakan serius apabila ia terjadi kepada orang kenamaan?

My 2 cent:
PDRM berdepan dengan cabaran yang besar untuk mengikis persepsi masyarakat bahawa ia gagal membenteras jenayah. Satu tindakan segera dan drastik perlu dilaksana untuk mengembalikan keamanan serta kepercayaan rakyat kepada institusi kepolisan negara. Antaranya, menambah peratusan polis di bahagian membenteras jenayah (khabarnya cuma 9%!), mengurangkan peratusan polis di bahagian pentadbiran (mengapa perlu sampai 40%?), menubuhkan satu mekanisme untuk membolehkan rakyat membuat aduan terhadap PDRM secara telus dan penuh accountable.

Di samping itu, masyarakat juga perlu lebih peka dan prihatin tentang aspek-aspek keselamatan diri dan  harta benda. Keselamatan adalah tanggungjawab semua, bukan hanya PDRM.

Khairy concedes Malaysia’s crime situation is “serious”

JULY 02, 2013
The worsening crime situation in Malaysia is not mere perception as claimed by some quarters and Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin joined the ranks of believers after being a burglary victim over the weekend.
He conceded in a Facebook post that the burglary was something real and not at all perception, as claimed by some quarters, such as the police and the Home Ministry.
Previous Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and senior police officers have attributed negative sentiments on crime to the people's perception.
Kuala Lumpur police had confirmed over the weekend that a minister's home in Damansara Heights had been ransacked by thieves but declined to reveal his identity. It was later learnt that the bungalow belongs to Khairy's mother and that Khairy and his wife were residing there. Only the maid was home at the time of the robbery, which was revealed by Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah to be around 5.30pm.
