It is without doubt since Prime Minister Najib is reacting to current increased of shootings and murder in cold blood, where there is a public outcry.
When he repealed the Internal Security Act and Emergency Ordinance the eve The Mole went live on 15 August 2011, so many voiced their concern on the security of this nation. We did raise then whether Prime Minister Najib was willing to commit substantial number of men and materiel to combat crimes and keep the internal security safe after the both laws were abolished.
Obviously that wasn’t the case.
Police had a strategy to check on serious crimes and those related to underworld vices and activities. The head of these groups and network are detached from their network and operations and held under EO. Therefore, the operation of these organizations of is impaired.
Last year, the Police had to release over 2,000 detainees from Simpang Renggam under the repealed EO and 6,000 more of restricted residence persons were allowed to walk free. It is believed that these persons rejoined their previous underworld criminal organisations and network. Hence, their previous groups and organised crimes network are back into proper planning and execution.
Coupled with increased smuggling of firearms from neighbouring countries, the nation suddenly saw the surge of serious crimes especially armed robberies and murder.
It looks like Prime Minister Najib is again reacting to popularity (in this case, public outcry) as oppose to proper planning, projection, consultation with experts and stakeholders before making a decision. By displaying the tendency of “Getting wise after the event”, there is high probably the rakyat will see him as a ‘Transactional Leader’ instead of a ‘Strategic Leader’.
