American Gangster Or Our Own MalaysiaKini Gangster

Update: added video on the 9th Nov anti-ISA arrest

Last night I watched a dvd movie given to me by a friend title "American Ganster". It's nearly a 3 hours movie starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. The story line is base on a true story in America's seventies during the Vietnam War.

In 1970s America, a detective works to bring down the drug empire of Frank Lucas ( a black man ) a heroin kingpin from Manhattan, who is smuggling the drug into the country in the coffins of dead soldiers returning from the Vietnam War.

The movie captured the drugs movement from Asia into the streets of major cities of New York, Chicago, Detroit and others by this Frank Lucas who handle millions of dollars of drug transactions without going through middle man.

The main story is not about the drugs but of corruptions among the police force in New York. It tells how one honest detective with a handful of his own selected force were able to bring down Frank Lucas and bring to book nearly 75% of New York police force on corruptions.

Our own MalaysiaKini Gangster is in similarity of the American Gangster, not on the drugs situation but major corruptions and misused of power in our police force.

After the end of the movie, I was thinking to myself, there must be at least a few honest cops among our police force. If they are against corruptions and willing to fight against it, I am sure that there are ways and means for them to do something about it.

If these few honest cops of ours have the opportunity to watch this movie, I am sure they can learn a thing or two on how to fight corruptions but on the negative side, if they are not strong will enough they may instead learn how to be corrupted.

If there are any cyber troopers from the police force reading this post, I strongly encourage you to watch this movie and to inform your colleagues about it.

To all the other readers, watch this movie and if you have any friends in the police force, pass it to them.

The PDRM is totally at lost on how the policing of a nation works, instead they are going after peaceful gatherings and politicians with opposing views while rampant corruptions (above the table, as quoted by TM) are not fully checked and the crime rates are escalating with no view in sight of receding.
