Who gets the blame when the Government is unable to provide the rakyat with an living and working environment in which we are safe from both violent and petty crime?
Deputy Internal Security Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharum said snatch thefts usually occurred when the victims were careless with their property. Apparently, “such an attitude gives snatch thieves the opportunity to strike.”
It's always the rakyat's fault isn't it. When asked if the Parliamentary sessions could be telecast live, the Minister of Information said that the rakyat is too immature for such debates. Now, when snatch thefts have become serious concerns of the rakyat, it's once again the rakyat's fault for being careless!
Of course, it's really the rakyat's fault that there are preying criminals lurking on every other street corner. It's the rakyat's fault for the ease in which the criminals could get away with their crimes. And of course, it's the rakyat's fault for not being able to live in an environment in which they could enjoy higher standards of living, even if they could afford to do so.
These are indeed the Ministers the rakyat has generously elected.
