A Tribute to our Boys in Blue

A Tribute to our Boys in Blue

I like what Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee is doing. He owes no one a living. He carries out his work without fear or favour. He is clean and that is why he can take drastic actions against the criminals and crooks. He accepts no bribes, either directly or indirectly.He cannot be bought. These are the rare traits of an examplary leader. I too like the write up by Datuk Seri Yuen  Yuet Leng, in the Star yesterday. This is the greatest tribute a colleague in arms can give to another. It takes a man without any sin to cast the first stone and Datuk Christopher Wan is the first one to do so. Many in his position have come and gone but it takes a person with guts and courage to do what he is doing now.

The trouble with us is that we are suffering from the Elephant-in-the-room Syndrome where everybody will deny seeing it entering and leaving it after it has done some damage in the room. This is very rampant as manifested in the raids on gambling dens not far from a Police Station, the running and operations of an illegal Theme Park, the building of huge bungalows without approval, so on and so forth. All these point to our lackadaisical and laissez-faire attitude towards our work and responsibilities.

Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee has brought back luster  and shine to the image of the Police Force. The Police can now walk with their heads up in the air.

  1. Good day Major Teoh,

    Two days ago my sister was kidnap. Luckily she was throw out of the car unharm after 3 and a half hours. she called me using a kind person’s mobile phone to indicate the situation and location.

    We report police immediately but to out surprise, no action were taken. all the officer ask was write report first, inspector will talk to you later. after reporting and speaking to the inspector (he write another version of report), it is already 3 hours passed.

    The next morning, i wrote a sms to Datuk Wan stating the situation, Datuk himself also surprise why the police did not take action at the first place and pass me a KPD’s number. Note that Datuk was in Penang with his family. i believe he is on his day off.

    Many action has being carried out after i spoke to the KPD. although it sounds too late, but at least i can finally see action after 14 hours of police report.

    I dont know what is wrong. but i believe Datuk Wan always have a helping hand.

  2. Dear LonelySun,

    Thank God nothing happened to your sister. In a barrel, there will a few bad apples. The fight to purge these bad apples will have to lie on the sholders of all of us.

    Just as the prevention of crime, it is the responsibility of all and not the police alone.

    This will be a uphill battle. Let us not give up that easy. Dato’ Wan Christopher cannot do it alone. He needs our help too.

    Let us lend a hand to the police to fight crime.

  3. Dear Major Teoh,

    Now i am troubled by how our force is doing. I have always thought that a lead of a clue is very important to police to solve crime. For example, finger print. Isn’t it one of the best source to identify a person?

    One of the kidnappers have used my sister’s ATM card to withdraw money. Can we assume that card “might” have a thumb print on the ATM card? can we also assume to try to get the thumb print sample and conduct a biometric compare so the police can identify the owner of the thumb print? Is this process so difficult? or is it very expensive? or too time consuming until the Inpector just reply “oh… thumb print that guna punya”.

    Does viewing CCTV to get the picture of the person help better? The picture is taken. But all i can think of, is put the picture on notice board where only few people look at it. Or maybe at most beneficial, match with database to see if this “face” is link to existing case.

    Now, my worst nightmare has came true this afternoon. Police from Sentul called me up looking for my sister. They said a a young lady was rob and beaten near setapak housing area. And what the young lady remember is the robber’s car plate number. My sister’s car. I dont care much about the car as we have insurance cover. The most i angry about myself is, i can’t do enough for the police to hunt down this heartless human that can do such criminal again and again. More people is hurt again and again.

    Do you have any idea?

  4. Dear lonelysun,

    I am sure if the ATM Card has been recovered, the police would have dusted it for finger prints. I think it is best to leave it to the police to handle this problem. They are well trained and are professionals.

    I do understand your anxiety and your expectations. Solving a case is not that easy or as easy as you see it on TV series. It is very time consuming and tedious.

    This again will depend on how much tell tail signs or “footprints” are left behind at the crime scene.

    All I can say is to have faith in the police. They are doing a fine job.
