Welcome to The Wild,Wild West !

Bang! Bang! Bang!

With guns blazing,the robbers shoot their way out of the bank.With their loots on the shoulders,guns and rifles on their hands,they mounted on their horses and rode away from the cowboy town to their hideaway in the desert.

Shops,saloons and bars were closed.It was eerily quiet and one can hear the wind whistling away clearly.The people were fearful the robbers will come back to rob and kill again.

Having enough of living in constant fear,they marched to demand the sheriffs to bring the robbers to justice.
"But we do not have enough sheriffs and also we have not enough guns and ammos.We will be killed by them.We are simply outnumbered!"exclaimed the chief sheriff.

The people were disappointed again.

One sunny dusty afternoon,against a backdrop of hills,a lone rugged looking cowboy was approaching town.
As the story goes,he was the hero and savior of the town who single handedly killed all the baddies.

Well,this scenario is in a typical John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies and the story lines are usually set in the 17th or 18th century during the eras of the cowboys in Mexico.

We are now living in the 21st century and are reliving the era of the wild,wild west of the 18th century.

Every day in the newspapers, crimes are being reported.There are rapes,murders,snatch thefts,robberies and house break-ins.

Last week,a woman and her three year old son were brutally murdered.
Even a three year old child is not spared.A week before this, a Singaporean woman was also brutally murdered in her apartment.We have also read about snatch theft victims who have succumbed to their injuries.The houses of the Datuks have being burgled and even the angkasawan is the latest victim of a roadside robbery.

Aren't there any laws and orders in the country?

It's the incompetence !!!
The very people to protect us,that is the police force, seems unable to control the situation.
As the sheriff said,"We are outnumbered." This means, there is not enough police personnel to combat crimes.This reason is an old one and has to government done enough to recruit and train the police force to be effective to combat crimes?

The Auditor-General's report has shown blatant wastage of public funds.I believe there are many,many millions more which are not being reported.If only these money are channeled to the police force to improve the pay structure and recruitments,the old reasoning of not enough police personnel will be a thing of the past.

What is even alarming and discouraging,is the fact that IGP ,CID and other ranking officers are being investigated for corruptions.
Whom shall we depend for protection now?

The other equally important people to protect us are the judges.
Very often we have read that criminal suspects are freed due to lack of evidence by the prosecutors.And there are many such cases.
What if they are truly criminals?If they truly are,then the chances of them committing crimes again,brutal or otherwise are indeed very high.Can I say,if committed cleverly so that evidences cannot be traced,they will be freed again?
And thus,the vicious cycle of crimes continue.

Have the judges and prosecutors re-examined the cases so that criminals do not escape the law of judgment?

The country is currently being 'invaded' by foreigners.
The potpourri of these foreigners can be found almost everywhere throughout the country- Indonesians,Myanmar,Bangladeshis,Indians,Pakistanis,Africans,Chinese,Thais,Nepalese and Vietnamese.

Many of them are from poor countries and to come here to seek their fortune,they have to borrow and sell their houses or land.
With the meager income they are earning,they are under tremendous pressure to remit money back home.When this cannot be achieved,there is a high tendency to commit crime.
And there are also many illegals,who have nothing to lose,will just rob and steal !

We are simply over dependence on these foreign labor.

I shudder to think what will happen when the economy pie is not big enough to be shared.

Our immigration department does not seems to be effective in controlling this 'invasion.'There are currently more than one million foreign workers in the country,excluding the illegals
And many of them have managed to obtain the Mycard.
How they managed to get it,is any body's guess.

It's the enforcement !!!
To strike fear,the police,FRU and rela members must show their presence in public very often.
Rules of law must be strictly enforced and should not be compromised.
The people must cooperate with the police and the relevant authorities by providing crucial information.
The immigration department must work together with the police force to flush out the illegals on a regular basis.The end result will be deportation and not another amnesty.

It's the system !!!
Currently,the system of our police force has failed us-the corruption charges against high ranking officers are testimonial to this.

The judiciary system has failed us-the Lingam tape controversy is testimonial to this.

The immigration system has failed us-the immense influx of illegal immigrants is testimonial to this.

In short,our security system has failed.
What a perfect opportunity for the criminals to strike !

The murder of the three year old child last week still make me angry and sad and it really pains my heart.
How much fear do we have to endure?
And for how much longer?

Hopefully,as the story of the wild,wild west goes- One sunny day,against the backdrop of the Petronas Twin Tower,a young,well respected and intelligent man is declared the new PM of Malaysia and becomes the hero of the country!

And the people can live happily ever after.

Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website like yours require a
large amount of work? I'm brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to start a blog so
I will be able to share my personal experience
and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any
ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
