8 died in just Selangor this month by reason of police shooting... INQUESTS for all deaths by police shootings?

8 persons shot dead by police just in Selangor this month...How many nationwide? Not that we do not TRUST police version of what happened...but there must be INDEPENDENT verification that this was not simply EXTRAJUDICIAL KILLINGS...The police is supposed to arrest suspects not shoot them dead..

Maybe police should be using tranquilizer guns and/or 'rubber bullets' ...The man who alleged ran amok with no firearm also ended up dead... Did the 'amok' even know what he was doing? Was he out of his mind when the police shot him dead?

The police talk about SOP(Standard Operating Procedure) - but is it made public, so anyone can complain when police do not follow these SOPs

See earlier statement - Inquest for all Police Shot Dead Victims - Extrajudicial Killing Must Be Criminalized in Malaysia

SUHAKAM should have PUBLIC INQUIRY on police shooting where 3 died and 1 women allegedly missing?

PETALING JAYA, Sept 25 — A local man allegedly involved with a human trafficking syndicate was shot dead by police yesterday during a special operation by an enforcement team from Bukit Aman.

Selangor police chief Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin said the man, aged 30, was fatally shot while the team had been carrying out the operations in Puchong.

“Police also detained nine Myanmar nationals believed to have been smuggled by the suspect into the country,” Noor Azam said during a press conference held at the Selangor police headquarters this morning.  

He said the police team had trailed the man and his Perodua Alza from Kelantan after receiving information that he was transferring the illegal immigrants to an undisclosed location.

“The police team decided to make an arrest when the suspect stopped at Jalan Pusat Bandar, Puchong.

“The officers blocked the suspect’s car, but that did not stop him as he attempted to ram into one of the policemen. The police had no choice but to open fire and the suspect was shot dead,” he said.
Noor Azam said the eight Myanmar national were found hidden inside the vehicle.

“All passenger seats in the vehicle were removed to make space to hide the illegal immigrants.”

Initial investigations showed that the man had stopped at Puchong to meet up with another Myanmar national, believed to be a middleman in the smuggling operations, who was also arrested.

Noor Azam said a background check on the man killed showed he had 11 previous criminal records for drugs, theft, robbery and extortion.

This is the third police shooting in the state this month.

On September 15, three robbers from the same gang were killed after a 7km high-speed chase and shoot-out with police in Batu Arang, Rawang.

On Monday, four armed men died in a shoot-out with police at the car park of a condominium in Cyberjaya, several hours after carrying out a heist in Cheras.

Noor Azam acknowledged that this was the third such incident this month alone, but stressed that police were only doing their job to safeguard the community.

“We are not trigger happy, we have a standard operating procedure (SOP) and we adhere to it.

“My officers follow the SOP’s at all times and we ourselves will take action if we find that our men have not followed the SOPs,” he said.

Noor Azam said the officers involved had no choice but to take used deadly force as their safety had been at risk.

“The suspects we are dealing with are those who are armed and dangerous. The Rawang shooting suspects were involved in 70 robbery cases and in some cases, the victims were seriously harmed,” he said. - Malay Mail, 24/9/2019

Police shoot dead factory worker who ran amok and killed colleague

Bernama  |  Published:  |  Modified:
Police this evening shot dead a factory worker who ran amok, causing the death of one colleague and seriously injuring another, in Bayan Lepas, Penang.

In the 5.45pm incident, the 25-year-old man is believed to have used a parang to harm a female supervisor, aged 47, and a male security manager at the factory. The supervisor succumbed to serious injuries, particularly head wounds, while receiving treatment at a hospital.

The 53-year-old manager is reported to be stable and receiving treatment at the Penang Hospital.

According to Penang Southwest district police chief Supt A A Anbalagan, the man who had worked as a quality assistant for two years at the factory was believed to have suffered from depression for several months and had been absent from work for a week.

He suddenly turned up for work today despite having submitted a letter of resignation effective at the end of this month.

Anbalagan said policemen who arrived at the scene had told the man to give himself up but he instead attacked them with a parang, prompting the officers to shoot in self-defence.

The parang, as well as a knife, were seized by the police who are also investigating the dead man’s motives.
