Another sweep by our new BAL department of our PDRM. What is BAL you may ask? Why, dont you know? PDRM formed the new Bahagian Anti-Lilin (BAL) dept.
On 19th May 2009, around 11 people including MP Teo Nie Ching and ADUN Jenice were arrested in front of Teresa Kok's office at Seputeh for holding a Vigil. The Vigil was a sign of peaceful message to the people that Democracy in Perak is dead.
Whether the vigil is useful or otherwise? Whether the vigil serves its purpose or not, that is all secondary issues; for what the hell is wrong of having a peaceful protest by the People. These are fellow countryman/woman; fellow Malaysians. Why cant our own people send a message to the Government of how they feel. All usual attempts to talk to the government etc etc of how the people clearly has failed. Malaysia's governmental delivery is filled with corrupt practise and power abuse.
So there I was at the Brickfields police station around 1130pm to try see Nie Ching. As usual, just like last week, the Police wont let us in. Teresa Kok informed me that a DAP lawyer was inside but the Police were going to detain the 11 people including Nie Ching, for one nite. So in Malaysia, we burn a candle, in you go.
But the irony of the situation happened around 1210am (20th May 2009), when suddenly there was a power failure at the Brickfields Balai and the street lamps outside were also off. The whole balai was in total darkness except for lights from some Police Cars.
I could not resist it. I knew had to say it, and so I walked to a Policeman manning the Gate & I said it "Tuan, you nak lilin kah? Kita ada banyak ni..."
Needless to say, he was not amused.
