JB High Ranking Cop Robbed in His Own House!

If there ever was a news item about what the situation is like at most times in the City of Criminals, Johor Bahru, this is it!

From The Star 1 May 2009:

OCPD robbed at knife point

JOHOR BARU: Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaakob was tied up and robbed at knife point in his house here early yesterday.

The OCPD, in his 40s, who was home alone, had a shock when at least three men surprised him at about 5.45am.

The suspects, all believed to be Indonesians, tied him up and ransacked his home.

The intruders then fled with some cash and valuables.

ACP Zainuddin managed to free himself and contact the police. He later lodged a report at the Tampoi police station.

State CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Datuk Amer Awal said the suspects managed to enter the OCPD’s house through the back door.

“The OCPD was not harmed and so far we have detained three men in connection with the case,” he said, urging those with information to contact the police hotline at 07-221 2999 or the nearest police station.

On the plus side, this should spur the JB police into high gear!

(And they begin by releasing a statement saying that this is an isolated case!)

    When it happens to the police, especially senior police officers, they spring into IMMEDIATE action. You can be sure the OCPD had a response from a police patrol car so immediate that it could have earned a place in some Malaysian book of records.

    Contrast what happened in our housing area in Ipoh some years ago. At about 3am, in heavy rain, 5-6 Indonesians broke down the back grill and wooden door of a house near mine. The neighbours heard the crash and bang as the grill, followed by the door, gave way to the robbers’ sledgehammer blows. The house owner called the police. Several neighbours called the police. “We’re comong, we’re coming..” the police answered each time. We waited. No one came. People phoned each other. Asked each other, Should we go over to help? No, not when one robber, holding a parang, could be seen keeping watch from the back door.

    The robbers left. 15 mins later? We’re not sure. BUT WE’RE SURE THAT THE POLICE CAME LONG AFTERWARDS,at about 6.30am. “Are the robbers gone?” one had the audacity to ask. “Well, go to our police station and make a report,” he continued.

    i have a serious doubt over the assumptions made over the cases of rob and steal in malaysia…. whenever there is a robbery, or theft, the indonesians will be the first to be assumed and suspected for the crime…. are they really indonesians???? i doubt.

    as for a similar experience with Adifferentvoice, complaints on the efficiency of the public workforce have not been limited to the police only… you all know what i mean. if each of us share our views on this issue, i bet, it’ll be thicker than my bible…….

    The Ipoh case I referred to involved Indonesians. They were construction workers. They thought their boss was in KL, so they came to rob his house. Imagine their shock, after robbing everyone in the house, to find their boss holding a HUGE stick and waiting for them when they broke down the door of the master bedroom! He gave a mighty roar and charged at them. They saw him, stopped in shock, one shouted BOSS! and all turned and ran away. Of course, they went into hiding and, perhaps, back to Indonesia.

    But I get your point. In Ipoh, nowadays, Malaysians, CITIZENS, not Indonesians, are the robbers.
