The Government of Malaysia accepts the provisions of the Convention on the Rights of the Child but expresses reservations with respect to article 1, 2, 7, 13, 14, 15, 22, 28, 37, 40 paras 3 and 4, 44 and 45 of the Convention and declares that the said provisions shall be applicable only if they are in conformity with the Constitution, national laws and national policies of the Government of Malaysia.

Malaysia is a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, with “reservations” (in other words, the Malaysian government doesn’t want to recognise these articles of rights) on all articles relating to fundamental civil and political rights. Unsurprisingly, our pariah government has reservations on this Article:-

Article 15 (1). States Parties recognize the rights of the child to freedom of association and to freedom of peaceful assembly.

This point aside, these police, yet another pencacai budak hingus Umno, don’t even have the guts (bo chun?) to talk face-to-face with the political bigwigs who turned up and led the gathering of Nov 10.

Instead they go for kids and their parents.

If only they showed as much zeal and dedication as when going after child-rapists-murderers, snatch thieves, corrupt politicians and their kin who, in a recent example, brazenly pay for his BMW in cold-hard cash collected from commissions here and there (can anyone be more crass than that, eh?).

Where I grew up, children, youth and students are part and parcel of civil society. We went for protests, marches and rallies. The role of the police is study the map of the city and help facilitate the march to its destination with minimum disruption to city traffic, *not* pour corrosive chemicals into their water-canon trucks, load up with tear-gas cannisters, close roads and train stations and get psyched to beat up people exercising their basic right to demand for free and fair elections.

***************

Mr Velvet and I spotted Imtiaz briefly last night at a restaurant but we were about to pass out from hunger, so we didn’t get a chance to personally thank him and the Bar Council monitoring team’s work on Saturday. He later informed me that he was scheduled for a taped debate with Zam Maidin and the Prime Minister’s Son-In-Law at al-Jazeera today.

I hope Imtiaz showed some mercy 😀

ALL I CAN SAY IS A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU OUT THERE WHO MADE THE PROTEST MARCH IS GREAT SUCCESS. “HIDUP BERSIH”. I think that the police were actually targetting the children (who were with their parents) with their water “pisols” and tear gas cannisters. In the first place why shoot when one sees children in the front line?

4. monsterball - November 14, 2007

After the march…who cares what some police say or do..or what those UMNO ministers are saying.
We were prepared for any and everything….and marchers were all peace loving Malaysians…all 40,000 and it seems much much more by others count.
I have seen some police personnels indirectly admiiring the marchers too…smiling and friendly.
It is quite similar …like how the Phillipinos ousted Marcos with their marches….people’s power.
And lets hear from Pak Lah…who claim he work fr the people stomatch this ….I heard….and he talks cock as usual.
Most of them were away from K.Lumpur….showing how much they love their people. Now knowing how peaceful and cultured we walkers are….back to their cock and bull talks.
hi CITIZENS OF MALAYSIA…..if at all trouble starts…yoir leaders are all overseas and hiding. Is that what you voted them in for?

5. fred - November 14, 2007

The NST is reporting Noh Omar as saying, amongst others, that there were 18 children detained… got meh? And that parents were using their kids as human shields! Suddenly the gathering is made up of archetypal terrorists who use human shields, issit?

HIGHLIGHT:
He (Imtiaz) later informed me that he was scheduled for a taped debate with Zam Maidin and the Prime Minister’s Son-In-Law at al-Jazeera today.

COMMENT:
Har, I can’t wait for this… Hope someone tapes it and put it on Youtube.

PDRM got nothing or nobody to blame on, so they blame the parents who brought their children out for shopping after their exams! Just shows that they are really stupid. How many serious crimes rely on tips and not forensic investigations to solve? How many detectives are intelligent people? Try talking to the IOs. Some can’t even write a good report. But then, they are very good in catching traffic offenders or bully people. One banged on the bonnet of my wife’s car so hard until it dented. Seems it was blocking traffic but the moron didn’t notice there were a few cars in front that were blocking and my wife couldn’t even move! These people aren’t there to serve but to make money. Wonder how much the IGP has in his account. There is also this guy by the name of ACP Bakar. Used to be in the papers but not now. He likes to frame innocent people then extort money from their families.

“And that parents were using their kids as human shields”
The government and the police have been telling the whole world that Al Jazeera had lied and there was no police violence. Now Noh says children were used as human shields.
Why do they need shields when they are not attacked? Is he admitting that they were attacked?
In any case which parent would want to risk his children’s lives, stupid?
It is always parents who risk their lives to protect children.
The government can lie and concoct stories. No body would believe them. Truth always prevail.

11. ravi - November 15, 2007

Today (13 Nov), the IGP played up another “wayang”. This episode is supposed to be performed in Terengganu. In the last 48 hours, the police have threatened to clamp down heavily on a BERSIH gathering in Pantai Batu Burok. Stern warnings were given by the IGP as well as Terengganu Menteri Besar; and were broadcast in all channels of radio and TV.

BERSIH was warned not to go ahead with the program. Well, we normally will not bow to intimidation of this sort. This time is different, BERSIH was not organizing any event tonight. We have done a thorough checking among Parti Keadilan Rakyat and PAS branches, no even a ceramah kelompak was planned tonight.

How could the IGP get his facts so wrong? Were the Special Branch officers failing him? Or, these were just shadow plays to fool (frighten) the public?

Smiling, friendly cops someone says. So this what you get:

13. monsterball - November 16, 2007

Yes ravi…I did say there are friendly cops too!
And don’t bring one cop who broke someone’s leg to represent all cops….neither majority cops that are on the take…to represent those uncorrupted and do give their lives to protect the people and country.
Every society have good and bad….so are bloggers and commentators. What are you?
We are here to talk and seek truths…not with an agenda to say all bad for the fun of it.
Certainly not me…..and I dare say….there are few good politicians and ministers…that belong to UMNO and PAS…but they should resign or live the the bad labels.
I hate the police as much as anyone…but I do know quite alot of police officers that have integrities…principles in life and incorruptible. Do you know any?

14. ACP - November 17, 2007

We’re coming for you, you bitch!!

EW: Oooh. I’m so scared. Pass me the teddy bear pls.

15. monsterball - November 18, 2007

And we commentators will carry tongkats and brooms to sweep those
Always Corrupted People away…..protecting Liz with our lives.
Liz does walk the talks…one hell of a no fear iron lady.

16. woodyooi - November 18, 2007

Liz,
great Job.

We will always walk with you.

Someone told me this story, in Kulim, community policing done by normal folks was able to apprehend 4-5 ppl/day with anti-social behavior. But the cop was not even able to get 1 person within 4-5 days. This is how pathetic this copper has become.

The cop is fast becoming our social burden and liability.

17. monsterball - November 18, 2007

Dedicated to Liz…sung by her hubby to her every night!!
1.Baby ..let me be..your loving teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be….your teddy bear.
2.I don’t want to be a tiger…cause tigers play too rough.
I don’t want to be a lion…cause lion ain’t the kind you love enough.
3.Just wanna be….your teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck..and lead me anywhere …oh let me be….your teddy bear.
Baby let me be..around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair
And cuddle me real tight
Oh let me be…your teddy bear.
PS: Many singing this song made famous by ELVIS PRESLEY….married or unmarried…% got pregnant …very high.

18. ACP - November 19, 2007

We are coming after you, bitch!

EW: Clock’s ticking mate. After your pedicure’s done, perhaps?

19. Lance Kopral - November 20, 2007
