Who intimidate who? Police or the citizens?

Intimidation must be accompanied with the ability to commit violence.
How can the citizens commit violence against the police?

Unless police is intimidated when its actions are questioned by the
citizens, especially elected representatives.
Actions such as violence against witnesses and suspects resulting in
deaths, which are widely reported and yet no successful prosecution.

But demanding actions demanded by the law of justice, is not
intimidating, it is called fighting for justice. It is those who stop
the fighters of justice who are doing the intimidating.

Actions speak louder than words.
How many citizens died under police custody? Many. Just because the
police had never been found guilty is not surprising when those doing
the investigations are the police themselves.

How many policemen died as a result of direct actions of opposition
elected representatives. None.

You can also apply this to the Israeli Jews versus Palestinian Arabs.
Who do you think intimidate who?

You have to be consistent with your judgement if you really believe in

It's police intimidation, says Liew

GEORGE TOWN (Dec 28, 2009) : The Selangor police's decision to
investigate Selangor state exco Ean Yong Hian Wah after he had asked
them to cease their probe on Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng for
making allegedly seditious comments is a form of intimidation, says
Bukit Bendera MP Liew Chin Tong.

Liew, in a statement, said: "Since when have the police gained such
clout that its actions are beyond public scrutiny and criticism?

"It is the most regrettable that the police has decided on such a
harsh and draconian course to quell views expressed in public sphere."

By doing so, the police is clearly "intimidating" its critics, he

On Sunday, Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said Ean
Yong's statement directing the police to cease their investigation of
Lim seemed like an attempt to intimidate the police and as such, the
Seri Kembangan state assemblyman would be hauled up for questioning.

Khalid had earlier said Lim would be questioned this week for
allegedly making seditious comments after the DAP secretary-general
told a Pakatan Rakyat convention on Dec 19 that Teoh Beng Hock had
been "murdered".

Teoh, 30, the political secretary to Ean Yong, was found dead on July
16 at the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam, which
also houses the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office. He
was a witness into an MACC probe on alleged abuse of state funds.

An inquest into his death is currently ongoing.
