Dear RPK, brave warrior brother,

I'm sorry I could not be physically present today at the Jalan Duta Court to lend you moral support. I know full well you are doing what you do on behalf of all Malaysians who have had it with the ongoing charade that passes for "justice" in this fair land that has been made unfair by those who have mismanaged it for decades.

I fully empathize with the powerful feelings that prompted you to go out on a limb and court trouble by blogging so outspokenly about the deafeningly unspoken facts surrounding Altantuya's murder. You have certainly provoked the hidden hand of the invisible puppetmasters to hit out at you. We thank you for heroically taking the blow and sacrificing your personal time and energy for the ultimate good of the nation. As a warrior for Justice and Truth you have won a permanent place in the hearts of all honest Malaysians and deserve recognition as a national hero.

Now is the time every Malaysian must ask: why have the police not taken any action to arrest those who stole public property when they lost their jobs after the elections? I hear that confidential files, official records, computers, printers, fax machines, etc. were criminally removed from the premises of state government offices within hours of the elections. As far as I know the incoming state governments have lodged police reports on this outrageous theft and shameless attempt to destroy incriminating evidence. I've been waiting patiently to read that the police have called in the ex-Chief Ministers of Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang for questioning about the missing files and office equipment.

RPK, you have committed no offence against anyone but those who have been trying to hide behind the privilege of high office and who believe their misbehavior cannot be questioned. There isn't a single honest citizen who believes you deserve to be thus harassed by the police. Instead, we wish to see the police take immediate action against the REAL criminals, many of whom continue to form the government of the day.

Even the current prime minister is guilty of complicity in a grotesque cover-up. In November 2006 Abdullah Badawi had the opportunity to distance himself from being tainted but he chose to protect his deputy from investigation. That decision may have won him Najib Razak's apparent loyalty - but only at the cost of his own credibility. By that action he has condemned the entire BN administration as one that habitually conspires to cover up even the most heinous crimes committed by ministers. This constitutes an indelible stain on the legitimacy of the BN government and has put the nation in serious crisis.

A campaign to restore Malaysia's dignity and ensure justice - not only for Altantuya but for all who have been wronged - has been initiated on Facebook. This virtual group only serves as a rallying point to raise public awareness and mobilize when necessary against further injustice. We fervently hope the need to organize another mammoth rally on RPK's behalf will not arise. But if the BN administration remains stubborn and arrogant and unable to read the writing on the wall and in the sky... friends, we know what we must do!

When I was knee high to a grasshopper and still had time for bikes, I remember visiting Raja Petra's bike shop with my brothers. And I would think that Raja Petra is the coolest guy ever and I wanted to grow up to be just like him.

It sickens me to the pit of my stomach now that he is now being punished for his courage and his love of truth and justice, while scoundrels and reprobates like Muhd Bin Muhd Taib and Rahim Thamby Chik are still free to enjoy the spoils from their years of abuse of power.

Wake up, Malaysia! RPK is the kind of person we want as our future leader. He can lead us to greater progress and prosperity and has the kind of intelligence and integrity that the rest of the world can look up to and respect. Why do we put our village idiots on display and incarcerate our thinkers, movers and heroes?

What we must do as good citizens is unite and ensure that Pakatan Rakyat gets a further 5 years after 3002. 4.5 years is too short to undo the pig's ear BN made of the country.

Sure, some of those bootlickers, blackguards and ostriches out there will say, "RPK asked for it. He was being too bold and brash". Then my reply is "Yeah, UMNO asked for it too. See how bold and brash our mud monkey Hishammudin was with the keris, and see where it got BN after March 2008".

Ha! Fair Dues!

Don't you get the feeling sometimes that MALAYSIA is really one extended Bollywood epic - complete with high=tension suspense, thrills and spills, dollops of slapstick, a squeeze of Keystone Kops, just a wee bit of (fully clothed) romance, and occasionally a hearty dose of song and dance? Even our politicians and bloggers - like Anwar Ibrahim, RPK and Jeff Ooi - are larger-than-life superheroes! Who needs bloody Asstro?

RPK for PM? I don't think so! However, I'm nominating Pete for the post of IGP when the Pakatan Rakyat government takes over. He would be a shining and totally funky Inspector-General of Police and all the rank-and-file would respect him and stop being lazy or corrupt. Indeed, with RPK as exemplar our police force will become the best in the world - and the most beloved. Yes, and the PDRM will be renamed PDRPK (Polis Di Raja Petra Kamarudin ;-)

All hail RPK our new IGP!!!

Hahaha! If RPK is IGP, that would be fun! I am so bored with PDRM.

Oh btw, will i be charge under Sedition Act for comment like this and will you be charge for posting my comment?

I just read rocky's bru blog and the Sedition Act at Wikipedia. Seemed that,that guy in UMNO should be charge under Sedition Act for his keris acting and not RPK....

CaptainCaveman said...

Btw, i got a sms news that businessman Syed Akbar Ali is also being charged under Sedition Act for posting a comment on RPK's site

So what happen to him now? Is the PDRM going to charge everyone and anyone for posting a comment on bloggers sites?

Hurry up, Anwar.Before more and more people get arrested for trumped up charges. Before 'Malaysian-style Justice' becomes a catch-phrase.

CK asked: "Is the PDRM going to charge everyone and anyone for posting a comment on bloggers sites?"

Well, when RPK becomes IGP, I'll recommend that he charges RM1 for each comment posted on the Official PDRPK Blog, which will serve as a way of gathering feedback from the public, thus abolishing the need for the IPCMC. Knowing RPK's popularity, the blog will generate enough income to pay all police salaries. Double bonus for Malaysians! :-)

Antares, very good proposal! I am more than happy to post 100 comments each month to the Official PDRPK Blog.
