Makes you wonder why the criminals are targeting high-ranking ex-cops. Surely there must be enough rich people (not with the police force) around fer them to burgle. Think about it, if you were a petty criminal who engaged in burglary & general thievery, you would normally have "cased the joint" you are about to break into. Would you have chosen an ex-cop's residence to commit yer crime? What are the chances of him having a gun in the house & you getting fooking shot? Pretty fooking high, me thinks . . .
As reported in papers today, some daredevils broke into former IGP Tun Hanif Omar's residence & stole . . .wait for it . . . a karaoke set! A couple of months ago, another ex-IGP Tan Sri Norian Mai also fell prey to a couple of parang-wielding hoodlums who broke into his house not once . . . but twice! Talk about balls!
Late last year, a former deputy IGP lost some loot to armed robbers while in Feb 06, former Penang police chief Datuk Albert Mah tragically lost his life fighting off five robbers at his home in Jln Gasing.
To many citizens, this is just a clear indication of the spiralling crime rate. To conspiracy theorists, the question is what is it that these ex-cops know that they are being targeted? Were the robbers looking fer something in particular - a safe containing various VIP secrets/skeletons (ala Vijendran's home movie collection)?
Is someone out there sending a message/warning?
Cynics will just say : former high-ranking cop = serious loot. So they become obvious targets. Hmmmm . . . what d'ya think?
