Helen pulls out from Hartal

By Helen Ang My name will be coming down from the sidebar of this blog. An explanation is owed readers but I don’t know what to say, except ‘Sorry’, and hugs to everyone. As with most people unsure of where to start, let me go back to the beginning.

Syabas! Anti-ISA rally shows police have 12% success rate

By Helen Ang

Bernama, our national news agency reported that 589 people were arrested in connection with the anti-ISA street demonstration.

I am truly impressed by the efficiency of our police. They nabbed 11.78% of the ‘criminals’ who broke the law attending an ‘illegal assembly’.

If there are 5,000 cases of snatch thefts reported a year, and police show the same level of efficiency, then they would have solved 12 percent of the cases. And apprehended 589 snatch thieves, and hopefully recovered and returned 589 handbags to grateful women of Malaysia.
