Puchong, 6 May 2016: What fallout, you ask?
What fallout, indeed? Instead of being so defensive over his decision to withdraw the police outriders he had been according to the ex-PM (and entertaining clowns like this), IGP Khalid Abu Bakar should now consider withdrawing police outrider services to not just ex-Prime Ministers but also other more undeserving/less deserving VIPs, including Cabinet Ministers, members of the Royalty and their consorts, Chief Ministers and Menteris Besar and their deputies and their consortiums, and Mayors. A lot of people up there have been abusing the cops this way and instead of attacking the IGP, we should be encouraging him to do more in the interest of the taxpaying majority.
I say outriders should be assigned only to the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister, the Yang diPertuan Agong, selected foreign dignitaries, the Chief of Justice, and, perhaps, the IGP himself as and when they are on official assignments. And of course, as the practice is, for escorting vehicles transporting dangerous convicts from one point to another.
VIP convoys with police escort - Must you give way?
