The reputation of the Police is of great importance to every country. The Police must be held in high regards, in great confidence that they are there to protect the people and the people can go to the Police with confidence that they would be protected by the Police and the Police will upkeep law and order and justice for the people.
Recently there is a new trend for the people to make spurious Police reports to harass other citizens. These people are abusing the Police, making use of the Police like their private gangster force, to threaten and intimidate other citizens. Hopefully there are not many such cases and the Police knew the intent of these scoundrels and would not be made use of by them and made a fool of, and losing their credibility as the guardian of the people. Not only that, any spurious report would mean a lot of manpower and resources and valuable police time wasted to chase after ghosts and imaginary things.
I have been threatened a few times by such scoundrels before, claiming that they would make a police report against me for all kinds of spurious and fictitious reasons. The lastest is by an anonymous blogger calling himself JayF in my blog. He accused me of being racist, xenophobe, traitor, anti Singapore etc etc. I quote,
‘It is not thought crime when you actively spew hatred and xenophobia with dog whistling on a public blog…. Chua had crossed a line when he openly celebrated a mass murderer who was born in the USA, never visited South Asia before and even in his comments justified murdering of civilians because attacking people who can shoot back are too scary…. Chua. Let's make it clear. I am now accusing you of putting the interests of the PRC and cultural chauvinism above the interests of the Republic of Singapore. I am accusing you of being someone who despite being a Singaporean has loyalties to the PRC rather than the Republic of Singapore...’
And now this JayF, an anonymous claimed that he is his bastard son, is using a police report to threaten and intimidate me, suggesting that he had made a police report against me, and the police will come knocking at my door. Here is his post.
This is another form of impersonating the Police to harass the people.
This is how scoundrels are abusing the name of the Police to threaten other citizens, tarnishing the reputation of the Police. They are carrying out the Police force as their private army to frighten people, to harass people, in the name of the Police. And the Police would get the blame for it as the feared Police force.
If people keep doing this kind of things, what would happen to the reputation of the Police, would it become a feared and indiscriminating force that would go around chasing citizens, harassing citizens and arresting citizens because an anonymous scoundrel made a report against a citizen?
I hope the Police know what these scoundrels are doing to damage its reputation as the guardian and protector of the people and become the devil to be used against the citizens. The reputation of the Police must not be damaged by such scoundrels. Once damaged it would be very difficult to repair.
The Police should be on guard against such scoundrels and take a few to court for damaging its reputation in the eyes of the people. The Police should not be made to dance and jump around because these scoundrels made them to. They should take a few of these scoundrels and make them jump on a hot tin roof instead.
