Today I saw in the newspaper that PM DS Najib Razak said the government will not bring back the repealed Internal Security Act.
I didn't read the whole story.
Just read the headline as I stood at the newsstand of a 7-Eleven shop. I am on the road and got no time to read newspapers properly. Not even on the internet.
Personally, I think Najib is doing the right thing.
I never like ISA as I have never been comfortable with the concept of detention without trial.
It's just not right.
I know, in the US they got the Patriot Act while other countries also have such preventive laws. But, why must we be like them?
We are better than them.
Singapore still have the ISA, but I don't think Singapore should be the right benchmark for us all.
In fact, we have always been more democratic then them.
I know, some of my friends want the ISA back, but I disagree.
We must move ahead and improve ourselves instead of wanting to rely on an instrument of power from the past to safeguard our security.
Enforcement of laws needed to be tighten and that should be the priority instead of reviving the ISA.
What? How to stop all those terrorists?
Errr....just shoot them all la. How about that?
I am sure we can set-up an execution squad to do the job.
Why bother to catch them and all that? Troublesome only leh. Pakatan people always complain about ISA anyway. It has become their "modal politik".
So, we just shoot them, okay or not?
Well, once they were dead, they are no longer threats to the country, isn't it?
What? How to stop those who instigate racial disharmony such as by lying that certain ethnic groups were being treated as second class citizens and such, just to win their votes?
Nope, you don't revive the ISA for that. That's an archaic draconian law. Isn't that what they said?
Hmmm...should we....or should we not just shoot them too.....hmmm.
Well, I'm leaving it at that.
You all think about it.

There is SOSMA to replace ISA. The authorities already used SOSMA to arrest several suspected terrorists such as Yazid Sufaat and the Somali guy.ReplyDelete
As for those inciting hatred, we have Sedition Act and other laws to deal with that.
It's a question of want you want or maybe what you don't want? Is it more preferable to face an increased risk of crime and disorder or to have someone looking over your shoulder the whole time and the risk of facing unfair punishment from the state? Annie paints a simple picture - a bit more freedom versus the risk of being killed by a terrorist. Okay, that's easy to weigh up. What about a bit less freedom and the risk that the state kills you by accident? But we should trust the state, right? All good people with our best interests at heart? And they only use their powers against the "bad guys", right? If we give up the power of the ISA, then we must give the resources needed for the law enforcement agencies to do their job. The same agencies must consistently strive to be better. Also, terrorism is changing - its not just about home-grown threats, its about cross border complex organisations and we need to work with international law enforcement to combat the threat. Not just when the guy has the gun/bomb, but able targeting of those that justify their beliefs, that promote hate, that finance them, that recruit the vulnerable, that arm them, that shelter and succor them. Its not as easy and one dimensional as a single law in a single country. Think about it.ReplyDelete

Someone posted in my FB and I am sure whether it is genuine stating that 'DAP will help Malaysian Chinese to migrate to western countries which is better than POOR MALAYSIA should BN win GE14".ReplyDelete
