Stop, think, breathe, act. It is a life-saving rule in times of trouble. Monkeys are not known to be capable of acting this way.
Here, have a read at this first:
Press Statement by YB Zuraida on IGP Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar
2 September 2014
The IGP has gone overboard with his latest arrest of the Penang Voluntary Patrol Unit (PPS). As IGP, he cannot simply declare any society as illegal and should go through proper procedures. Any society unregistered with the ROS must first be declared illegal by the ROS like Hindraf. There must also be proof that the society had tried to register with the ROS and was declined its registration.
The scenario for PPS is different. PPS is part of the Penang State Government body and comprises of the state exco members and state assemblymen.
The IGP should be aware that he is a public servant and that the public’s interest comes first. The police force should not be used as a means to oppress the public.
PPS had always been a voluntary unit to help the community in emergencies and disasters. If the PDRM had been efficient, there would be no need for volunteers to step up and help the police in their work. These volunteers sacrifice their family time just to make their neighbourhood a safer place to live in. Due to the community spirit and selflessness of these PPS members, crime rates in Penang have gone down.
PPS was set up many years ago. There is no reason why the IGP should suddenly and unjustly call it illegal and start to crackdown on these innocent volunteers when all along, these PPS members report to their respective neighbourhood police stations before patrolling the area. Threatening to raid the homes of these volunteers unless they surrender themselves to the police is also absurd and an abuse of power.
The IGP has shown very weak leadership.
In the case of Victor Wong and Nasrul, both who offended the IGP by describing him as Henrich Himmler and Anjing BN respectively, and subsequently being directed by the IGP that both be investigated by the Police Cyber Investigation Response Centre (PCIRC) shows a lack of tolerance for personal opinion. Even after Victor Wong tweeted an apology to the IGP and PDRM, Khalid is bent on taking action against the two under Section 233 of the Communication and Multimedia Act 1998 and Sedition Act 1948.
These heavy-handed clampdown on those in opposition towards the Federal Government is a repeat of Operasi Lalang.
The IGP should be reminded that the PDRM is not his personal army.

I instantaneously burst into laughter after reading the statement above. Of course, Zuraida aka Mak Lampir is just one of those Lab Monkeys the PKR fielded in 2008 and never expected to have won the seat. Perhaps she, like Wan Azizah, need to have a good grasp of their surroundings and of current affairs before coming up with such bravado (Wan Azizah still thinks that the Lembaga Letrik Negara or LLN still exists!).
The Royal Malaysian Police only affected the arrest of more than a hundred members of the illegal Persatuan or Pertubuhan Peronda Sukarela (PPS) or whatever you call it by on the 31st August 2014, that Lim Guan Eng claims to have been set up four years ago under the powers vested to the Penang State Government to assist the police in crime-fighting. However, members of the PPS have been seen putting up DAP party flags and banners instead and have been involved in acts that are extrajudicialis. Nothing much is known about the PPS despite having been set up for four years. No paper work, no guidelines, nothing. It is just a band of vigilantes set up in the name of the state government.
The action by the police was taken after a warning was issued for the PPS NOT to gather on the 31st August 2014. This was after the letter below dated 26th August 2014 from the Registrar of Societies was received:
With such information in hand, only idiots like Zuraida and those who support her still think that it is absurd and an abuse of police power for going after the members of the PPS. Lim Guan Eng’s feeble attempt at equating the PPS to the JKKK is also a funny act. The JKKK (Jawatankuasa Keselamatan dan Kemajuan Kampung) is formed under the local government to become a committee to channel issues affecting the socio-welfare, development and security of a kampung. They do not have extra-judicial but absent powers and do not wear any uniform like that of the PPS.
If Lim Guan Eng is so adamant that the police in Penang are short-handed, why not utilise the funds paid tot he PPS members to provide allowances to support the RELA and Rukun Tetangga initiatives, both which are legal organisations empowered to assist the police when needed? Why the need to set up a shady uniformed organisation that has no guideline whatsoever and does all DAP’s biddings?
Anyway, as I mentioned, Zuraida is a lab monkey from the 2008 era. Had she read the letter from the RoS above and understood its content and where it falls on the timeline, she might not have issued such press statement that excites the public’s disaffection against the administration of justice.
As other lab monkeys gone rogue, she needs to be hauled up too!
