The Third Degree Interrogation
In a crucial scene in Public Enemies, despite not being a criminal Billie (Marion Cotillard) was interrogated by FBI agents, third degree style. She had no real info and yet the agents from the FBI beat her senseless until Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) had to stop the agents involved. By that time, there were wounds everywhere - too late.
I remembered watching that part in the premiere, and it was just the same thing that could happen to those who were interrogated, questioned and ended up in body bags like Kugan or Beng Hock. That's third degree of interrogation really happening in Malaysia.
There was also a movie that I watched sometime ago. A corrupt DEA agent raided a man's house for drugs and killed the entire family save for one girl, who refuged in the neighbor's apartment next door. Among those who were killed was an 8 year boy in that. A bullet for all to ensure no witnesses.
I wonder cops have gone out of the line and I can have the idea of why the Dzaiddin Commission of the IPCMC - police commission is never accepted by the police. And now this neighborhood anger is also a sign that people are starting to distrust the police already.
I wonder how those cops get their training of IFF - identifying friend, or hostiles. But in this case, I would want to see that cops involved get executed. These bunch of jokers are slack in basic education.
Yep, I would love to see both political fronts slug out on this matter.
