It may be unethical to make statements before the Attorney General has made a decision, but it is even more unethical for the Police to tell lies accusing witnesses of SEVERE CRIMES THAT THEY DON'T COMMIT. SEVERE CRIMES THAT AUTHORISE POLICE TO SHOOT TO KILL.
How dare the police make such an accusation after carelessly shooting a 15 year old boy, and later accuse them of VIOLENT ARMED ROBBERY TO THE PUBLIC. THIS SHOWS CLEARLY THE INTENTION TO KILL THE WITNESS, after they have failed in the first attempt at the site of the incidence.
After they have managed to trace the witness, they can just take the boy to a secluded place and plant evidences such as machette(parang) to make it look at though he is really violent, before killing him in cold blood.
This is the only plausible evidences after so many incidences of SO CALLED ARMED ROBBERIES or MUSLIM EXTERMISTS ending in DEATHS TO ALL WITNESSES. Just iunbelieveable but unfortunately believed by many Malaysians especially BN parties as shown by MCA.
Please note that under the British based Police manual somewhere, it is forbidden to shoot to KILL even an amok. That was in 1969 and proven by my father who had no need to kill any of the fully armed and fanatical pirates in such large numbers. I don't know about the manual nowadays but based on the statement by the Attorney General, this should still be the rule.
The boy JUST HAD TO MAKE SUCH A PUBLIC STATEMENT IN FRONT OF WITNESSES AND LAWYERS. It has nothing to do with being ethical, BUT TO PROTECT HIS LIFE.
Just imagine, after the police had tried to shoot you after trying to surrender, would you still like to surrender to the POLICE or to the PUBLIC along with your lawyer? If you value your life, you'd better go to the press, lawyer and lots of witnesses, before you make a report to the police.
The Police should be ETHICAL BY NOT TELLING LIES. LIES SUCH AS THE PRESENCE OF THE MACHETTE,(PARANG) THE ABSENCE OF ANY WITNESS, 6KM INSTEAD OF 1KM, as explained by the WITNESS himself, TO THE PRESS or to the family of the victims.
Now you may say that the boy lied in order to discredit the government. Why go after the police, knowing its history of brutality, and when you are still 15????
If you are an orphan, unemployed, with lots of loved dependents, you may want to do it in order to get paid by the any rich opposition parties. The money can be used for your loved depends, even if you die or imprisoned. Any such rich opposition parties in Malaysia???
If you want to discredit the government especially BN, you go after less murderous bodies, such as JKR, Municipal councils, CERTAINLY NOT THE POLICE.
The main question is WHY THE POLICE WANT TO PROTECT THESE MURDEROUS POLICEMEN?
Worst, the BN parties such as MCA, also want to PROTECT THESE MURDEROUS AND LYING POLICEMEN!!!!!
BN has more to lose in supporting CORRUPT, MURDEROUS POLICE OFFICERS, rather than trying to correct the government machinery. But alas, as the saying goes, MURDEROUS CORRUPT PEOPLE TEND TO SUPPORT MURDEROUS CORRUPT PEOPLE. You just can't change it no matter what.
Just observe Egypt. It all started with Police Brutality. Despite clear evidences, youtube videos, the policemen are still protected. And this is despite the mass protests that had resulted and most likely will topple the government at any time. Even if the government want to fight hard, ALL WILL SUFFER. The government, even the army, will not be invincible. If not their lives, their properties, reputation, comfort WILL SUFFER. WHY RISK ALL THESE JUST TO PROTECT MURDEROUS CORRUPT POLICEMEN, with clear EVIDENCES OF CORRUPTION AND MURDEROUS INTENTIONS!!!!
The latest news that I hear is that one policeman had been prosecuted by the attorney general. But ONLY ONE. The boy clearly pointed out that ALL 5 WERE INVOLVED IN TRYING TO KILL HIM!!!
USE your common sense.
MCA: Unethical to get key witness version in Aminulrasyid's case

KUALA LUMPUR: Getting Aminulrasyid Amzah's friend to tell his version of events leading to the fatal shooting of the 15-year-old is an unethical move, says the MCA.
Its non-governmental organisations (NGO) liasion bureau chief Datuk Ti Lian Ker felt that such a move might influence public perception and judgment as investigations were ongoing and the attorney-general had not made a decision.
"There is a danger that the attorney-general may be influenced by public pressure in deciding to prosecute the police officers on duty due to public pressure, instead of basing on the facts of the investigation.
"This is similar to instances whereby innocent victims were penalised or made scapegoats for a crime they did not commit due to mounting public pressure," he said in a statement here Tuesday.
The key witness in the case, Azamuddin Omar, who was in the car with Aminulrasyid, told a press conference Monday that they were pursued by policemen and insisted there was never a situation where they tried to mow down a policeman.
In the 2am incident on April 26, Aminulrasyid died after police fired in the direction of the car.
