When we talk about the police force, there will always be two extremes – the positive and the negative. This time around, it is the latter.
Yesterday (20 Jan), a video went viral on social media where two police officers believed to be STAFOC (Special Task Force on Organized Crimes) members from Bukit Aman tried to take matters into their own hands and assaulted a burger stall owner in Taman Rasah, Seremban.
However, the incident did not end there as the ‘police officers’ brandished their side-arms in public and had threatened to shoot. That’s a big no-no for police!
According to the police report made on the incident, the two police officers approached the individual requesting for his identification card whilst claiming that they were the police.
The two police officers were then requested to show their identification multiple times. However, both officers failed to produce identification confirming their status.
A brawl soon ensued as the officer punched the individual at the side of his head. Later, a pistol came into the picture when the officer threatened to shoot anyone who recorded the incident.
At the end of the video, a friend of the individual stepped in to control the situation.
A police report was then made, explaining to the police the events that took place that evening.
According to IPD Seremban via its Facebook page, the case will be investigated under Section 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) and Section 353 (using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty) of the Penal Code.
Additionally, IPD Seremban has also advised members of the public not to share the video as investigation is underway since the 9th of January.
Let’s allow PDRM to do their job and ensure that unwarranted acts like this by anyone in Malaysia does not happen again. If it does however, they should be punished justly in the eyes of the law.
