I WAS SO DAMN ANGRY WHEN I READ THIS!!
I was just doing my regular rounds around my friends’ blogs and when I read about Jia Min’s friend’s snatch theft incident at Audree’s blog … I just had to put it out there for all to see!!
It was bad enough that Jia Min’s friend, Meow Fong, was dragged on the ground by the snatch thief for quite abit. LUCKILY SHE DIDN’T KNOCK SOME CURB OR SOME ONCOMING VEHICLE OR SOMETHING.
The only rational thing for them to do is for them to go to the police right? Correct.
So they did.
Do you know that the police asked them to go to ANOTHER police station(Brickfield’s) to make the report?! Then the POLICE at Brickfield’s station “screamed” at the two girls for coming at BUKA PUASA TIME. They asked them to wait for two more hours.
I don’t think they had to wait..but the cheek of them!!!
Then because Jia Min’s BM was quite fluent, one of the policemen called her in to his office to “interview her”. His “questions” were like, “Wah! Awak sangat cantiklah! Ada pak we kah?” and she was also asked to give him her bf’s name so that he can ‘check up on him’.
NYA MA CHAU CHI BAI SANG CHAI MOU SI FAT HAM KA CHAN HAM KA LING.
What the fuck right? WHAT. THE. FUCK.
Hello?? I thought these Ah Moi teasings only come from the lowest of our social strata(read: Indonesian/Bangla construction workers) but aren’t the POLICEMEN supposed to be our HEROES?! AREN’T THEY SUPPOSED TO PROTECT US AND NOT MAKE US FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE?!?!!?!
I’ve met some nice policemen during the times I’ve had to go make police reports(car accident, runaway maids, stolen handphones(they said that i should not bother reporting because it’s no big deal. This was back in 2000. A HANDPHONE WAS A BIG DEAL.), applying for permission to have big social gatherings etc.)…but this….THIS is too much. LOWEST OF THE LOW.
Aud hopes that someone will write to The Star. JIA MIN YOU SHOULD WRITE TO THE STAR. Bloggers are good propogators. So I’m just sharing this bit of disturbing news with my side of the blogosphere.
