Some of you may have missed this item in the Star online as it was in the Parliament Section (?why). Don't bother searching for the news item. i'll summarise it for you. This is what the item is about; a 'story' told by a Johore ADUN in the Johore State Assembly. It is about the victim of a snatch theft. The victim while walking somewhere in Tampoi had his sling bag snatched by 2 men on a motorbike. In the bag was the victim's passport among other things. The robbers later contacted the man and demanded RM2,000 for the return of his belongings, after some 'tawar menawar' a sum of RM500 was agreed upon. The victim then made a polis report and informed the polis of the pending exchange of cash for passport and other things. Guess what the investigating officer [IO] told him? DIY-- the IO told him to fulfil the the robbers' demands and catch the robbers himself. End of story? Not yet. The victim went for the exchange meeting, parted with RM500 and got ONLY his passport back. After listening to the Stones' [i can....]Satisfaction, and being not satisfied, the robbers tried their luck again the next day and contacted the victim offering to return the rest of the belongings for another RM1,500. Victim got smart this time around, approached said ADUN. Said ADUN took victim to the district deputy police chief. Polis Chief took prompt action and all 3 greedy robbers (2 has now become 3?) are now in the lockup. End of story? Not yet. What happen to said IO? Transferred out? Demoted? What? Moral of story? Victim of snatch theft, don't go make polis report, see ADUN or Polis Chief!
