Busted: Five Suspects in Nurin’s Murder

Yeah! So said Bernama today.

IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan must mean business if these people are caught so fast. Here are excerpts.

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 28 (Bernama) — Police arrested five people, one of them a woman, in separate raids in Shah Alam last night to assist them in their probe into the murder of an eight-year-old girl, Nurin Jazlin Jazimin.

Besides the arrests of the five, aged between 27 and 33 years, the police also seized two cars and five mobile phones, Bukit Aman CID Director Datuk Christopher Wan Soo Kee said in a statement.

He said the arrests were made following a public tip-off.

At about noon today, the Petaling Jaya Magistrate’s Court issued an order to remand the four men for a week from today to help in the police investigation.

The woman was released by the police.

Meanwhile, from information obtained by Bernama, the arrests were the first made since “Ops Sunti” was launched to hunt down Nurin Jazlin’s murderer after her body was found stuffed in a sports bag at a shoplot in Jalan PJS 1/48, Taman Petaling Utama, Petaling Jaya, on Sept 17.- Bernama

If only those people are named, I don’t think they (the 5 suspects) can walk the streets anymore. There will be a lynch mob waiting everywhere they go. Who knows, I might join them.

But then again, I’d like to say that I’m a law-abiding citizen (generally anyway : ) ), so instead of punishing the perps after they have done the deed, I think what you, readers, and I should do is to find a way to ensure such a horrific crime does not happen again to our young children.

Tembam has some suggestions. And I for one agree with her. Let’s work towards prevention of crime via networking. She suggested Amber Alert that is used in the US in response to the many people who go missing in that country.

Hey, many people especially women and children, are going missing in Malaysia. So why not work towards reducing the incidence of crime against our young and defenceless?

Also, I have this suggestion to the legislators of this country. I think it’s about time we consider capital punishment for child rape. I think it is a heinous crime. I’d like to suggest capital punishment for rape in general, but police investigations being the way they are, it might give rise to miscarriage of justice.

But go on, you can argue that it can happen in the case of child rape as well, but that’s the fault of the law enforcement people. I think the Malaysian society in general and those dumb asses (some) we elected to Parliament, should realise that Rape is as unforgivable a crime as Murder, if not worse, since the victim bears scars for the rest of his/her life.
