As far as I am concerned, the setting up of the Home Ministry’s special panel monitoring investigations into the police shooting of Aminulrasyid Amzah was a big mistake!

Each and every statement made and each of their moves were being monitored by all Malaysians and their verdict is a big slap!

You do not need a panel to confirm that there were major ‘inconsistencies’ and the manner it was distastefully spinned by mainstream media before the deceased family hit back with repeated home runs with the Malaysian demography behind them speaks a thousand volumes about how distrustful of the official version we are today!

After more than 27 years of media doctoring and ‘iron fisted’ – it has dawned on all what is truth and what actually is fabrication and others half truths or worst blatant lies!

As far as this very sad episode went it was badly managed from the onset!

And if the ‘brickbats and commentaries of condemnations’ were not enough the public display of insensitivity – displaying neither remorse nor sadness as they are pictured smiling here – gleefully smiling from ‘ear to ear’ as if this was a glamor shoot was distasteful!

Must I point out that the family of the deceased child are still in a state of loss and mourning!

It hurts to realize how far from the tree of sensitivity and care we have fallen – all for political expediency?

When I meet dear friend, the Home Minister and Prime Minister Najib, I must share with them these observations from the grassroots!

I am certain they are also monitoring the issues therein!

We continue to uphold the mourning family!

By the way guys & Pak Seman – what is that big smile for?
