The image of our men in blue has certainly taken a good bashing following the bashing they gave to Bersih 2.0 protesters on July 9 2011. Even long before this event, things were not going right with the PDRM especially with the increase of custodial deaths as well the increase in crime rate which they look so helpless to contain. The excuse given was, it was only due to a few 'rotten apples' that are giving the force a bad name. Then by logic, isn't it easier then to remove these 'few rotten apples' before it tarnishes the entire force? Why was it not done? The public faith is almost down to zero and unless something is drastically done, the PDRM will end up to be nothing more than a bunch of uniformed thugs.
Perhaps we could take a leaf out of the 'Robocop' movies and have our police personnel all re-program to think like our titanium armored hero. In view of their limited education [some of them], we can give them three simple directives to enable them to carry out their duties efficiently ...
1. Serve the public trust.
2. Protect the innocent.
I believe this should solve the problem. If this doesn't work, God help us all.
