Of course the case where the JB OCPD cop got robbed in his own house is ‘an isolated case’.
Usually, the vast majority of Johor criminals rob defenceless, non-police civilians.
Thus, it is true that a policeman getting robbed is an isolated case.
As for ‘losing confidence’ in the Johor police force, well… I’ll let the four years of my Johor Crimes blogging history speak for itself.
And as for ‘losing confidence’ in the police force as a whole nationwide… Here’s Khalid Abu Bakar putting on his comedy routine for you.
From The Star 5 May 2009:
Police dismiss robbery on OCPD as an isolated case
JOHOR BARU: The incident where an OCPD was robbed at his home was an isolated case and the people should not lose confidence in the police force, Johor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said.
He said this incident should not affect the people’s view of policemen.
“These types of incidents will not demoralise us. In fact, it will make us stronger as law enforcement officers,” he told reporters after opening a forum held in conjunction with the 202th Johor Police Day celebrations at Kompleks Islam here.
DCP Mokhtar said police had already arrested six illegal immigrants suspected of being involved in the robbery.
Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Zainuddin Yaakob was tied up and robbed at knife-point last Thursday by at least three foreign men who ransacked his home and fled with cash and valuables.
ACP Zainuddin later freed himself.
DCP Mokhtar said a special task force led by state CID chief Senior Asst Comm II Datuk Amer Awal was set up to investigate the case.
The forum was aimed at keeping police officers well-informed about their duties as law enforcement officers while adhering to their religious teachings. The main aim of the forum was to ensure police officers conduct themselves with integrity.
Some 400 participants including cadets, retired police officers and the public attended the event.
