the police made statement that a parang had been found in his car.
my question to the police who made such stupid and idiot statement,
THE PARANG HAD BEEN FOUND IN THE VICTIM'S CAR BEFORE OR AFTER THE SHOOTING?
if they found in the victim's car before the shooting, perhaps it could justify the shooting. BUT, if they had no knowledge about the existence of the parang in the victim's car prior to the shooting, what warranted the pulling of the trigger? not only once or twice..
even if the victim was in the possession of a parang, was there a real danger confronted by the police? ok senang ceta laa..police tu naik kereta, ade pistol..budak tu pun naik keta, tapi ade parang. adekah orang yg ade pistol akan rase takut dan rase keselamatannye tergugat dgn org yg bawak parang? dah laa tu, bukan nye face to face pon.
if u still could recall dato' bhalwant's case..i think it was decided in 2001/2002. the accused was charged of murder under s302. factual background of the case was that, dato' bhalwant was driving when his car was stopped by a motorcyclist. the motorcyclist was holding parang or kayu ( part ni aku tak ingat sgt, but dia pegang some sort of senjata laa).. then he threatened dato' bhalwant but the accused didnt pull the trigger right on the guy's face. he fired gunshot in the air first to intimidate the guy with the intention tht the guy wd back off and let go off him. but this fella was so adamant and tak takut dengan warning, then dia move towrds the accused.. bila dah tgk mcm tu, baru laa dato' bhalwant pulled the trigger utk kali keduanya n acu pistol tu dekat that guy.
dato' bhalwant was set free by the court as the court accepted his plea of self defence cos he had succesfully established that there was a real danger confronted by him to warrant his act of firing gunshot on the victim.
albeit the fact that he was acquitted, dia still kena charge in court jugak..btol tak? before the case was disposed in court, there were lots of speculations by the public..kekdahnye disini, kalau orang awam boleh hadapi segala spekulasi dan tuduhan2 mcm tu sebelum mahkamah buat keputusan, yang polis ni jadi real defensive ni apehal? tugas polis adelah utk menjaga keselamatan org ramai..to defend ppl's safety..bukan jadi DEFENSIVE tak tentu hala.
