“Lawlessness amongst enforcers are what keeps the rakyat away from patronising the public domain. Hence restaurants and eateries are on the doldrums. If not for the takeaways, fattening the wallets of food delivery companies, they would all have collapsed under the weight of these enforcers’ rampant issuing of summonses, subject to their whims.
One may never know when one’s luck could run out if we chanced upon them in roadblocks. Such as the most recent case which made headlines?
Everyone knows that driving without a license is an offence, but no one knows we can get away with it if we happened not to be wearing a bra. That is, if we can let our privacy go unchecked by allowing the officers a peek at your boobs. And the only corporal punishment meted to the accused since then was a transfer to administrative duties? Tak malukah pdrm? Semoga kami semua terhibur?
God knows how many of these enforcers has been guilty of picking up gullible women, demanding contact numbers on the pretext of issuing summonses, in exchange for sexual favours because of their incontrollable libido. And God knows how many that were remanded overnight in lockup’s, got their basic share of sexual harassment in exchange for freedom. Are these poor moral conducts excusable according to their operational standards when all of them were supposedly trained to uphold the law?
I think it is high time the SOPs are polished with CCTVs taking prominence when sparring with the public ‘on all occasions’ to regain back public confidence, rather than hiding behind the already tarnished badge. More than ever.”
