    Re: Police: Shooting of teen: Home Ministry - Police can kill in defence

    Civil society has to learn to recognize the following principles:

    All Ruling Classes treat the people as assets/resources to be exploited and as potential enemies that can overthrow them.

    Police is used by the Ruling Class to protect their interests and a standard operating procedure is to use fear and force against the populace to keep them under control.

    When the police make a mess of things and lives are lost, the standard strategy is to cover up, to stall until the public forgets, to use the mainstream media to spin, and basically never admit that a mistake was made. If pressure builds up to much, then offer a scape-goat as a sacrificial lamb.

    This scenario has been repeated over and over. This is part of the Rat Race System. That's why it is so important to understand how the system works in order to protect ourselves.

    Don't we ever learn?

    In the face of evil, we cannot remain neutral.

    Police can kill in defence

    PETALING JAYA, 26 May 2010: Police officers are entitled to kill or injure innocent persons as long as they genuinely believe lives are in danger, said the Home Ministry.

    Click thumbnail to read ministry's letter.

    In a letter to The Nut Graph dated 17 May 2010, the ministry said: "Although police officers' actions may result in death or injury to innocent persons or are not fully sanctioned under the law, they would still be entitled to act. This is on the condition that their intentions are sincere and they genuinely believe that their lives or the lives of those they are protecting are in danger."

    The letter was signed by Habsah Md Sidek from the ministry's public security and order division on behalf of the ministry secretary-general.

    The ministry added that police officers were fully trained and exposed in the use of, and circumstances in which, they could discharge their firearms. This included the aspect of self-defence.

    Written guidelines

    While the ministry's response provided more information than its previous communication with The Nut Graph, the response however made no mention of the Inspector-General Standing Orders (IGSO) on the use of firearms. Instead it only referred to provisions under the Penal Code.

    Unlike the Penal Code, however, which applies generally to anyone acting in self-defence, the IGSO applies specifically to the police. Information about IGSO, however, has not been forthcoming.

    The ministry's 17 May letter was its second response to The Nut Graph's letter dated 3 Mar 2010, which requested for a copy of the written guidelines on the use of firearms by police. The ministry had earlier responded in a letter dated 30 March 2010 which merely referred The Nut Graph to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP).

    The ministry's most recent letter actually sets out some guidelines on when police may act in self-defence. "Police officers have the right to defend themselves to the extent of causing the death of an assailant as set out in the Penal Code (Act 574)," the letter stated.

    It went on to cite examples of circumstances in which a police officer may kill in self-defence such as:-

    a If a person is attacked in circumstances where there is reasonable apprehension that death or grievous hurt would occur as a result of the assault;

    b To save a woman from an assault where the attacker intends to rape; and

    c To save someone from an assault where kidnapping or abduction is intended.

    Restricted document

    The Nut Graph was informed in March by Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah that the police shooting guidelines were part of an internal document, "not meant to be circulated in public".

    This was after Norizan Salleh's case was highlighted by the media. Norizan was shot at and allegedly assaulted by police, and survived.

    Following the public outcry over the fatal police shooting of teenager Aminulrasyid Amzah, however, IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan reportedly said he had no reservations making the IGSO public. He added, however, that it was up to the special panel monitoring the investigations into Aminulrasyid's case to decide whether to release them.

    The Nut Graph wrote to the IGP on 28 Apr 2010 requesting for a copy of the written guidelines on police use of firearms. No reply has been forthcoming to date. The Nut Graph....

    Called a criminal, Aminulrasyid’s family waits for apology

    There is a consistent behaviour in all the components of the UMNO War Machine whenever they are caught. Denial, stone-walling, cover-up, threatening witnesses, drag the case to wear down the complainants.

    Kugan, Teoh Beng Hock, Norizah Salleh, Aminulrasyid.

    Called a criminal, Aminulrasyid’s family waits for apology

    October 12, 2010
    SHAH ALAM, Oct 12 — Anger appears to have buried grief as the primary emotion at the start of trial today probing the shooting to death of Aminulrasyid Amzah.

    The 14-year-old’s family and friends are still waiting for Putrajaya to formally apologise for calling Aminulrasyid a “criminal”, six months after policemen on duty pulled their guns on the joyriding youngster and his best buddy Azamuddin Omar, causing the duo’s car to crash.

    “We want justice for Aminulrasyid. We want them to retract the statement calling him a robber, a criminal,” said Monaliza Mokhtar on behalf of the dead schoolboy’s 60-year-old mother, Norsiah Mohamad. TheMalaysiaInsider....

    Cop gets five years for killing 15-year-old

    Police corporal Jenain Subi, 49, was today convicted of causing the death of teenager Aminulrasyid Amzah, who was shot dead in Shah Alam on April 26, 2010, during a high speed car chase.The Shah Alam Sessions Court found him guilty of culpable homicide, under Section 304 (a) of the Penal Code, in the death of Aminulrashid.
    Judge Latifah Mohd Tahar sentenced Jenain to five years' jail for the crime, which carries a maximum jail term of 30 years.
    She also allowed a stay of the sentence pending appeal and set bail at RM10,000.
    Latifah ruled that Jenain (left), dressed in a white kopiah and a dark chequered shirt, had committed the crime between 1.10am and 2am at Jalan Tarian 11/2, about four months shy of the teen's 15th birthday.
    She said the prosecution had proved beyond reasonable doubt that the bullet that caused the student's death was one of 21 shot by Jenain that night, using a sub-machine gun.

    Latifah said as a police officer, Jenain should have known that firing shots on automatic mode was “dangerous” and “fatal”.

    The court found that it was “unnecessary” for Jenain to open fire as other policemen on duty during the incident testified that the car driven by the deceased had slowed down at Jalan Tarian.

    “The accused had also agreed in his testimony that the situation at Jalan Tarian was no longer dangerous as there was no other vehicle on the road, other than the (car driven by the deceased) and police patrol cars,” she said.

    Aminulrasyid was gunned down during a high speed police chase some 500 metres from his home.

    Deputy public prosecutors Mohd Dusuki Mokhtar, Idham Abd Ghani and Adilla Ahmad, appeared for the prosecution, while Jenain was represented by M Athimulan, Salim Bashir and Halim Ashgar Mohd Hilmi.

    Also present today were Aminulrasyid's family members, who were shedding tears, and the famly lawyer, N Surendran.

    Jenain's wife was seen weeping profusely after the judgment was delivered, while her husband appeared calm.
    Jenain, who hails from Kota Belud, Sabah, and has 25 years experience in the force, appealed for a lighter sentence, saying he had four children aged three to 15 years to look after.

    In arguing for a lighter sentence, defence lawyer Salim said Jenain had acted in the line of duty "in service to the nation".

    'Heavy sentence should be meted out'

    "He has been patrolling the streets of Shah Alam for eight months... as we soundly slept... I am speechless," Salim told the court.

    Co-counsel Athimulan added that Jenain had not fired his submachine gun "indiscriminately... with the intention to kill a small boy".

    "He may have erred in exercising his duty, but he purely had no intention to kill the boy," Athimulan said.

    Deputy public prosecutor Idham argued for justifiable punishment as it was a "serious offence" that was "committed without provocation".

    Idham said a heavy sentence should be meted out as a lesson to all that no one is above the law.

    The high profile case had invited public scrutiny on police standard operating procedures, and led to calls for the Inspector-General's Standing Orders to be made public.

    There was also an uproar, following then-Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar's initial claim that Aminulrasyid had tried to rear end the police, causing them to shoot in self-defence.

    Khalid also said that a parang (machete) was found in the Proton Iswara driven by the teenager, but the car owner, who is the boy's sister, denied any knowledge of the parang.
