Cop dies in bid to escape raid
KOTA BARU: A police lance corporal died after he leapt from the third floor of a budget hotel here to evade a raid by religious department enforcement officers.
The 33-year-old married man was found sprawled on the ground in a pool of blood. He was writhing in pain, according to hotel staff who called the ambulance to take him to the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital, 1km away.
I believe there was another death last month in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur in a similar khalwat raid. It looks like there is at least one death a month in this khalwat raid. So does this make people happy? Did the raiding party attend the funeral? Did they baca yasin for the man whose death they had caused?
They most certainly caused his death. He was afraid of being caught by the snoop squad, so he jumped out the window and died.
This puts us in the barbaric and uncivilised category of humans. Causing the death of human beings for no good reason. Somebody should have enough brains and guts to put a stop to these snoop squads.
Here is a thought. If someone has multiple sex partners, then it is either prostitution or promiscuity (or it could be the Brader). But if you legalise it and call it polygamy - with marriage licenses and all, then its ok.

There are over 1,000 migrant workers hired by 130 sub-contractors working at the project site. . . . The Star, responding to an SOS call, visited the site in Jalan Duta and found the workers living in frustration and fear as many do not have work permits or cannot afford to renew their permits which have expired. . . . The project’s main contractor, Maya Maju Sdn Bhd, said it is the responsibility of the sub-contractors to pay their workers. . . The Human Resources Ministry has asked the Labour Department to investigate the matter and take immediate action while the police has asked the workers to come forward to lodge complaints.
Well Maya Maju is correct of course. They are the main - con. The foreign workers are being conned by the sub-cons. Its not their responsibility. As the main - con, they only collect the difference. The sub-cons do all the work.
Here is the taichi part : The Human Resources Ministry has asked the Labour Dept to investigate. The Police has asked the workers to come forward and complain. Maybe the Health Department will do a brain scan on the Police Department. Or the Immigration Dept will do a raid on the Human Resources Ministry. The Statistics Dept can compile statistics on the whole thing.
According to workers interviewed by The Star, some employers threatened to call the police when they persisted in asking for their wages. . . Several workers even claimed they were harassed by the police and Rela officers and that their possessions like mobile phones, cigarettes and canned drinks were confiscated. . . . Indonesian Punawi, 32, who does plastering work, said he had not been paid for five months and barely had any money left for food. . . “I only manage with one meal a day and that’s because the foodstall owner allows me to eat on credit. My work permit has expired and I don’t have RM3,000 to renew it,” he added. . . . Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said the last police raid took place several months ago to flush out illegals squatting in the jungles. . . ..“Perhaps another agency was involved in the recent raids. If the allegations are true, the workers can come and see me and I will do what I can to help,” Wan Abdul Bari said.
