Policing the police


G Lim puts the spotlight on human rights, politics and the police.


This article was first published in Aliran Monthly Vol 22 No. 9
. Although more than 10 years have passed since then, the article remains relevant as it captures the period when the issue of custodial deaths raised public concern. So these alarming deaths in police custody have been taking place for some while now. – Editor

Now you and all right thinking Malaysians know why so many people in police custody died.
The… police behave like they are lords of all they survey and is never ever going to give this up under any circumstances. The only way to have them do so is for the … licking partners in BN to leave the partnership yesterday and thereafter have the entire police force reorganized.
