Actually let’s make that two.
One is the racial issue, or the lack of it. This is not about race primarily, race could be part of it, but the victim could just as easily be Indian, Philippino or Indonesian, would you be so upset then?
It’s not about race, it’s about human rights. As I’ve been told by locals, many people have also been beaten in lock-up, a lot have died and the conditions are terrible.
It could have been a white boy, it happens everywhere to all races, whichever race is the majority in the police force will be racist against all the other races, it’s a natural human thing. Racism is intrinsic in people, humans are afraid of or unwelcoming to anything that is different to them, that’s the way it is.
The second thing is people incessantly refering to Abu Ghraib, this is Malaysias Abu Ghraib, this is just like Abu Ghraib.
I’m sorry, but SCREW YOU. It’s not even in the same ballpark, it’s insensitive and downright stupid to make such a comparison.
This is quite disgusting for example:Malaysia’a Abu Ghraib video clip
And this is by a politician that is heard by many, please have some respect and sensitivity about the issue.
A naked woman being made to do squats IS NOTHING LIKE A DOG EATING YOUR GENITALS WHILST YOU ARE ALIVE AND CONCIOUS.
And it’s not even vaguely similar to being beaten to death then having someone take a picture smiling over your body.
