Come Off It IGP. Why This Sudden Turn Around On The IPCMC?

What's with our government servants? They are behaving increasingly like politicians these days; saying one thing and doing another, not keeping to their words and like our new IGP, Tan Sri Musa Hassan, making a 180 degree turn on the one important issue that matters to the public vis a vis the Police, the IPCMC.

In early July when still the Deputy IGP, he was a well behaved boy and kept on the good side of the government. Unlike his predecessor, Tan Sri Mohd Bakri Omar who had voiced his opposition to the establishment of the Independent Public Complaints and Misconduct Commission (IPCMC), our man Musa kept his peace and when asked, came out strongly in favour of it being implemented. Don't tell me that he was only playacting and thinking of his promotion, when he told the whole nation "We will abide by any decision on IPCMC"

Now that his place as IGP has been confirmed and he has taken the chair, what does he do? He shows his true colours and from being a staunch implementer of the IPCMC he has overnight turned into the 'saviour' of the 'oppressed' men and women of the police force and has gone on record: IPCMC Unfair To Police, Says IGP!

I'm disappointed with Musa. I had thought that he was of a different character and an honest person. I've to revise that opinion now.

But in today's NST he says that IPCMC will be done if that is the government's wish.

Maybe he is a cop who is playing to the gallery?

Sometimes I suppose we are not aware of the 'pressures' he might be under to make statements which contradict earlier declarations. He probably has to 'balance' the demands of government leaders with the perceived needs of the force.

I am against IPCMC.

Please do not fall to the galley of these Human Rights activist whose interest is not about peace and tranquility of Malaysia.

Succumbing to these voices which have ulterior motives put the safety of the public at risk. I totally agree that there is existing Commissions and Committees dealing with police.
Having IPCMC intervenes with the police effectiveness to work.

As far as I am concern, I am a law biding citizen and no threat to the public or nation, I have nothing to worry.

Rather than trying to stiffle the police work, we should be helping the policemen who risk their life for the safety of others with a bigger budget and better pay package to motivate them, facilite them and make their workign environment better.
