Telling The Wrong Tale

I remembered Anwar Ibrahim said the other day that the mainstream media should not be *owned* by the politics group and none of them has the capability to operate and report news by their own devices and whim. You do not need to have mathematics to deduce it. UMNO simply owns (through substantial shares) of Media Prima (all private TV stations) Berita Publishing Group (NST, Malay Mail and Utusan) whereas the MCA politically owns The Star (hence the name MaChAi) paper.

So how about Malaysiakini or The Sun? I don't know but Malaysiakini remains the independent media reporting thing in Malaysia. Don't count the opposition media but it remains the only neutral alignment paper that reports both ends - pro and the opposition.

Okay, now to the point. It was something that I've been anticipating in the past few days when Zorro and Big Sir Pete reported that two police whistle-blowers were hung out to dry in front of the mainstream media and they were formally charged by the rigged ACA on 14 counts of manipulating testimonies with sole purpose of framing Musa Hassan.

I don't know whether the reporters were charged of taking this news item down to be published to the public by the top police brass or not. In fact I remembered the name of the reporter in The Star who wrote it, coincidentally was my senior back in my St. Michael days. But the bottom line is that the police top brass and the mainstream media (indirectly) is deliberately telling the wrong story to the public. Indirectly, some Barisan Najis stooges (as Mob would coin it) and police wants the public to perceive the top brass, now allegedly to be linked with Chinese underworld as the heroes that save Malaysia at the end of a day. Furthermore, the ACA was hit by criticism that it is not doing their job and this can be a chance for them to do it right (as what they think).

Again, the people are being told the wrong side of the story.

The truth is that the police top brass and some underworld groups has figured out and panicked with the revelation that the two whistle-blowers had actually cracked the puzzle that connects both of sides and shows their association that the public does not know. As Big Pete said, there's a turf style conflict with two cells that is the government and the police. And to prevent things from further spilling out that could trigger panic of confidence to the public, the police with ACA had to turn the tables around and tell the other side of story with conviction.

How they did it was not mentioned in the mainstream media but instead a dirty tactic revealed by Big Pete: the ACA had 'kidnapped' the family of an inspector named Nordin Ahmad, demanding him to show up at their office in Kuantan in exchange for his family. Remember that the ACA was the one who cleared both Joe Baharom and Musa of corruption allegations as well as AG.

What both men Nordin and Kpl. Wong had in common is that both men had gathered intelligence and profiled the organization of the Chinese underworld, its connection with the police top brass and the sufficient proof that could bring Musa Hassan down in disgrace via interviews and statements with prominent underworld figures detained. Nordin's work alone was more than sufficient to paint the entire picture. The picture that he paints is enough to squeal to those who are interested to hear that PDRM has been corrupted.

The arrest made against both men is actually a hidden message intended to be conveyed to the other police officers and the public as well: if you squeal on those you know to be corrupted, you will suffer retribution. The result? Nobody dared to show up to testify which of course points to the Altatunya case right now. And a whistle-blower is likely to be hunted by corrupt people for screwing them up. But on the other hand, the police needs somebody on the other side to understand the mechanics and workaround of how underworld people operate. Without the mutual person, how are they going understand the mechanics?

The slight hint of truth was actually hinted out a few days ago at The Star when the police force gets sophisticated equipment and an e-police solution that is worth millions of ringgit developed by a firm that Musa recommended.
