They may have broken our law, but is there any need to embarrass and humiliate them like that, asks Angry Malaysian.
I was shocked and disgusted to see the photos in a local paper recently showing female guest relations officers being led away in chains after an anti-vice raid carried out by 357 officers from 18 government agencies.
Look at this report, which shows how they were led away.
Come on; they may have broken our law but is there any need to embarrass and humiliate them like that? Is this a spectacle arranged for the media and onlookers, who can be seen gawking intensely in the photo? Absolutely ridiculous and totally needless.
We have not even seen reports or photos of convicted murderers led away in chains like that, let alone those suspected of minor offences.
If the authorities see fit to treat these guest relations workers this way, did they treat the owners and management of the KTV/nightclubs concerned in the same manner? They may have broken the same law as well, right? After all, underage girls were reportedly found to be working at the karaoke outlet and a night club was found without a valid licence. Are double standards at play?
How about treating the patrons who frequent these bars the same way?
I notice that when it comes to arresting these guest relations workers there is always a spectacle for all to see.
I am ashamed to see my fellow citizens treating others in this manner
