The PDRM (Police) and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) work hand-in-hand to cover each other’s criminal activities.
Remove their uniforms and it would be very hard to differentiate between the criminals and the law enforcers.
In fact, the law enforcers are worse than the criminals, as recent developments have proven beyond any shadow of doubt.Read here for more

Excerpts: Read here for more
As a Member of Parliament, I used to defend the police when faced with numerous complaints from my constituents in Johor Baru. I told my constituents to have faith in the police as their alternative would be to pay for expensive personal security guards. No more.
More than a month ago, my trust and belief in the police force evaporated when my wife was mugged in broad daylight in her car at the front gate of my house by two men on a motorcycle. I certainly did not expect my wife to be violated right in front of my house.
The feedback I get back from the public in Kuala Lumpur and Johor Baru is that crime is on the rise in their neighbourhood. When I told them that the statistics point to a reduction in crime, they dismiss it and say many of them don’t bother to report petty thefts as they have no confidence that the culprits would be caught anyway. In fact, when they did make reports, many of them were told exactly that by the investigating police officers.
Crime rate had worsened over this period.
The Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Musa Hassan has been given four years to transform the police force and restore people’s confidence, and he has FAILED thus far.
I think the current bad crime situation warrants extreme action.
The police force currently has more than 90,000 personnel. However only 30,000 of them are actually working the street beat.The other 60,000 are higher paid administration level staff filling paperwork in the office.
I am sure they would be more effective in ensuring the streets are safe than sitting in the office. If they refuse, then they should be given early retirement so that the police force is able to hire newer, more dedicated staff

.....AND THE POLICE ARE ALSO OVER-BURDENED
