I would like to highlight that nowadays, it is not uncommon to see policemen breaking the laws. We have a brand new case, and I quote the news from The New Straits Times below:
Cop Arrested Over RobberySUBANG JAYA: A rogue policeman's crime spree ended early yesterday when he was arrested for robbing a group of university students. The lance corporal attached to the Shah Alam police station had been looking for "easy money" and robbed four Universiti Selangor students about 12.30am.
The girls were walking back to their rented house in Bestari Jaya (formerly Batang Berjuntai), when the cop and an accomplice approached them in a car.
Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said the suspects demanded their victims to hand over their cash and hand- phones. Both suspects then sped off in the car.
The girls, however, immediately notified the police and both suspects were picked up an hour later.
Khalid said the lance corporal was on leave at the time of the incident and police were now checking if his colleague had a criminal record.
"The suspects, both in their 20s, have been remanded for five days starting today (yesterday) to facilitate investigations," he added.
Let us hope that the Police Force will look into this matter more seriously because the problem is real. The percentage of personnel involved in crimes may be low, but it is not negligible. The authority must take effective positive steps to curb the problem.
