Corp Khalid Che Rus. Walking the hills yesterday evening, a fellow walker who comments on my blog introduced himself to me and we got acquainted as we walked down the slope. We talked about politics and we talked about the fatal shooting of 15-year Aminurasyid by the police in the wee hours of ... He has a son about Aminurasyid age. "How do I explain to my 9-year old if it had happened to my son, how do I explain why the police opened fire at a 15-year old?"
I have a 15-year old son, too, and I am deeply affected by this tragedy. I have questions I want to ask the parents as well as the cops which I will not ask on my blog at this juncture because doing that will not help any.
I told my new friend that the PDRM has a good record of coming down hard against its own [read Shooting of 15 year old: The Circus Begins for past actions against errant/rotten police officers], so it's best to wait for the investigation into the incident to complete.
There are many good cops out there. I know many of them.
This morning, Mahaguru sent me an SMS asking me to help publicize the plight of a good cop who's rotting away after almost a year in coma following a hit-and-run incident. Meet Corporal 104747 Khalid Che Rus, 44, father of three:
here to watch Mahaguru's interview and visit Khalid at his home. The Malay Mail carried a report on his plight on March 29 this year, Cops family in dire straits after hit-and-run but according to Mahaguru, Corp Khalid's situation remained dire.
