The PM has agreed to grant quite a lot of money for the Police force to buy much needed equipments especially the much needed bullet proof vests. I agree one hundred percent. May I give some suggestions.
Please, if the PM has some groundings in very simple mathematics then he should know that if you buy and item for 1K, you could buy 2 of the same items if it costs RM500 each. So Mr. PM please see to it that whoever who does the purchasing, buys the vests for the price they really cost. If you can't do it, then give me the contract. I promise you, I will buy them from the best manufacturer and supply them to the force at a price to cover my expenses. What say you? This way, you could have surplus just in case.
I also heard that part of the money is to either repair or replace the scanning machines at the border which have kaputed causing the personnels manning the border considerable difficulties. How come those machines kaputed? From whom did we buy them? Don't we have technicians to repair them? And one more question, who got the contract to supply those faulty machines?
Since we are on the subject of bullet-proof vests, I would like to touch a little on another 'proof' topic. I borrow this new term from Mahaguru58. Since the Police personnels would now feel safe when going out on duty, could we move on to creating a 'corrupt-proof' (Thank You Mahaguru) force? And should you come out with a curriculum to produce this kind of personnels could you use the same curriculum on the Cabinet, Government MPs and YBs, their kins and friends and of course government officers from the Chief Secretary right down to the Tukang Kebuns.
What I know is that, if you are truly serious and sincere about effecting change, you would eventually be successful.
