Another 'shoot to kill' incident - 4 killed. Yahoo has this question now that need answers: Do you agree that Malaysian police tends to shoot to kill?

Another case of 'shoot to kill' - and 4 persons are shot dead...
Four Indonesian robbers were killed in a shoot out with police outside a quarry in Labu near here at 5.30am Monday.

All four aged between 25 and 40 had opened fire at police when a patrol car intercepted their vehicle forcing police to return fire. - Star, 24/8/2009, Four Indonesian robbers killed by police


See earlier post: Did the police try to arrest them...or did they just shoot to kill them? Extrajudicial killing must be condemned..

Note that what I am picking up are possibly just some of these incidents that get reported in media that caught my eye ... and the question that should be asked is how many people have been shot dead by the Malaysian police?

24/8/2009 - Star, 24/8/2009, Four Indonesian robbers killed by police

21/8/2009 - Star, 21/8/2009, Two robbers shot dead in Klang

11/8/2009 - - Star, 11/8/2009, Four wanted Indonesians killed by police

These are just some of the media reported 'extrajudicial killing' by the Malaysian police. How many people were really shot dead by the Malaysian police? Maybe some MP can ask these question in Parliament - as that seems the only way we can get answers in Malaysia.

It is really odd that we do not read many stories of people being shot and arrested...

The latest incident where 4 shot dead by what .... 2 police man in a patrol car...What was the patrol car doing there in the quarry? Was it really a police ambush? Questions...questions...

Guess what YAHOO has this question now, that people can give their opinion...

Do you agree that Malaysian police tends to shoot to kill?

I believed the police has done their homework before they act. Whether they shoot to kill or arrest them, it is up to them at the moment of arrest. If you don't have evidence that they shoot to kill, you should be supportive that we have now less 4 criminals on the road.Why complain that police is not doing their job when you dont appreciate it when they do act? I have chatted with policemen on the walk in my housing estate recently and I can say these people are serious about their job and even asked me what nationalities that robbed my neighbours over the past years so that they can keep a lookout even they are on the beat. I still believed there are many good cops in the force and we cannot generalise them with those used by politicians.
