Corke's photo used to protect 'real victim'
Corke, a one-time Hong Kong chess champion whose photograph was lifted from another website, also asked that the people and media in Malaysia respect her privacy. "I hope the public and Malaysian media will... refrain from making unsolicited contact with me and my family, college, chess federation and other affiliations," she said. The Penang chief minister had on Wednesday lashed out at pro-Umno bloggers for trying to finish off his political career by wrecking his teenage son's life with "morally despicable and barbaric" lies. SMJK Heng Ee principal Goh Boon Poh has also denied that such an incident had happened, and that the person depicted on the blogs is a student at the school. Since DAP revealed Corke's identity, several bloggers who have been posting on the issue responded by saying that her photograph was used "to protect the identity of the real victim".
Some thing tells me that three mentioned above are neither suffering remorse nor guilt strikened by their callous act. To them, I guess it is all part of a political gambit when they knew they have the protection of big brother. But what really struck me in disbelief was when KJ said in his Twitter message that the Opposition have done worse things before. For someone who is Oxford trained, that statement really came across as being childish. I take it that he believes that two wrongs would make a right, so it didn't matter whether it would affect a 16-year old kid, a 1-day old baby, a 80-year old grand parent, so long as "you do it, I can do it too". Such mentality is definitely one of UMNO and not Oxford University.
