"These were brave men. Men who risked their lives to make this country of ours safer. I have told the IGP that his men must not rest until the cop killers are found and sent to the gallows. This country will not be threatend by the bullets of these drug syndicates. We will not let these three heroes died in vain!"Well, actually, the PM didn't say that. I made it up. What Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said was that he was disappointed with the police ambush strategy. Not the best of PR lines in a time like this but, well, read here.Earlier, the IGP said the police will investigate to establish if the raid was done according to procedures. Gosh. Shouldn't he be saying that he will not leave any stone unturned until the killers who gunned down his men are brought in."... the approach (used last night) was not right. If they had done it differently, including asking other squads to provide back-up, then they could have surrounded the suspects properly and used loud-hailers to instruct them to come out. Then only the police could say that they were prepared (for the operation)."
