syed hamid albar, are you kidding me?!

I meant to update my blog today with photos to dupe you into believing that I have a most happening and active social life, but that will have to wait because…

Policemen beat a retreat

KUALA LUMPUR: A police beat base located in the Chow Kit area of downtown Kuala Lumpur has been shut down because the “presence of criminals could make it unsafe” for police officers.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said the beat base was located in a dirty area where police faced the possibility of being exposed to contagious diseases.

The presence of criminals also posed a threat to the safety of police officers. […]

I almost choked on my Nescafe ais kurang manis when I read that. But I don’t have time to really elaborate on that, because it’s befuddling, ridiculous and I have other things to do, such as playing Pirates on Facebook work. So here are a few notes:

1. HIV is not air-borne. You do not get HIV by touching or hugging someone with HIV. You cannot get HIV by sharing the same household items or swim in the same pool with someone with HIV. Unless the cops are paranoid that some of the criminals that they are so afraid of rush towards them and forcefully inject them with HIV positive blood, then they should not have to be afraid of anything.

2. Sexually transmitted disease (STD) means sexually transmitted disease. Unless the cops in question contribute to the unspoken thriving economy of Lorong Haji Taib, they should have nothing to worry about. Unless they are paranoid that some of the criminals that they are so afraid of have STDs and rush towards them and forcefully rape them.

3. Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar should go back to school, and/or discuss it with the City Chief Police Officer Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Sabtu Osman before babbling about contagious diseases.



  1. Hahhaha this is like one of the biggest jokes ever

  2. Gives the word ‘PONDAN’ a whole new meaning.

  3. “The presence of criminals also posed a threat to the safety of police officers.”

    Somebody tell me what police officers are suppose to do actually. Because I was under the impression that THEY were supposed to be the ones posing a threat to the CRIMINALS, not the other way round.

  4. Here the cops are scared of the tai kors, not the other way round. They probably told them to go move their ‘beat’ base somewhere else or they would be on the receiving end of a beating.

  5. KY: still cannot believe it hahea

    SF: indeed πŸ˜›

    eyeris: public safety 101 anyone?

    ST: the REAL tai kors u mean πŸ˜›

  6. Sarge: Quick Constable, chase that criminal.
    Constable: No way, Sarge! That’s against Occupational Health and Safety. He could be armed or something. I could end up dead or injured.
    Sarge: You’re correct. I have no idea what those criminals were thinking. I’ll send the OH&S officials after them instead.
    Constable: Good thinking, Sarge!

    Problem solved! πŸ˜€

  7. Yeah, I agree with ST. Same situation here in Sibu, but more organized and less violent. It’s more about the cash incentives over here instead of threats. The police here are quite aggressive too, they pull out guns, cock it and point it to the heads of people fighting in pubs and clubs (usually after giving their face a good pistol whipping). It’s the knee jerk reaction from the minions giving the less well armed cops a hard time in the past. Nowadays, Saturday night patrols are all heavily armed with automatic subs and handguns. I get the feeling that the cops are the violent ones nowadays, but not sure about KL.

    …but that unsafe for police officers made me LOL too. Heh!

    Oh, but the HIV thing is scary though. People actually rob using that method in Melbourne. They pull out a syringe, draw their own blood, tell you they’re HIV positive and relieve you of your wallet or they’ll jab you. Not funny at all.

  8. I don’t understand the “forcefully rape” part lah, you mean there actually is consensual rape? :p

  9. i just read the jalan alor changed name to jalan kejora .. and now this?! I got it.. its the dumb/joke fever in malaysia.

    dato’ shah rukh khan
    name change to jalan kejora
    and now this!

    what happened to malaysia? lolz

  10. Hire Nepali guards for all cops walking on the beat. 1:1 ratio.

  11. His retard-ness is contagious I believe. So stay away from him as far as you can. πŸ˜›

  12. dabs: at the salary they are getting here, i don’t wonder why

    HB: true. but police have guns.. and here, they wield them a bit too freely

    leongsoon: well there’s consensual rape. like, role-playing.

    sean: that’s another thing i am pissed off with. might blog about it later

    suertes: nepali guards rock! desa park city have awesome guards

    z: i’ll try πŸ˜‰

  13. this has got to be the best ever… really… the best ever.
