Criminal activity has been rampant in our country in recent years. There seems to be no sign of abating even though stringent laws o and punitive measures undertaken by the authorities to curb it.
In fact they getting more aggressive and vicious as they go about their nefarious activities.
Many are armed to the teeth ready to kill and injure. There are many cases of victims killed in the process.
People are living on edge.
Just yesterday a 76 year old man accidentally shot and killed his own son while persuing robbers in the darkness of the night. It was s tragic accident.

Have you read recently about a man aged 46 having consensual sex with his 21 year old daughter behind his wife...err her mother's back. Been having this clandestine tryst for 3 years...when she was 18. Wow...the nerve and audacity if this sex fiend.
He is a disgrace to the human race. A scumbag like him should not allowed free to roam in our a midst. Should be put away deep in some cave or a remote island away from mankind.
So many kinds if sex offences some inconceivable to our minds are happening in the world today even to defy specific charges.
In such a situation they are discharged without their defence being heard. They also have smart alec lawyers to thank for their freedom who exploit and capitalise on so many lacuna (loopholes) of the law. That's the unfortunate part of any legal system. A system that is supposedly to help victims or plaintiffs but in reality helping the offenders to get away even with murder
A woman now 25 yrs. lodged a police report that she was raped by her own biological father since she was 12 years of age.
Another new case that will blow your mind. A boy of 11 was caught having sex with a child 6 year old. When confronted he claimed to have been inspired by pornography video left by his parents. I don't think they kniw the folly of his misdeed. It must just have been at play thing to them.
My question is this. ...are the parents responsible? Unquestionably, they should be hauled up to be counselled and even prosecuted. As the 2 were underaged and under their care and protection.
It is frightening that so many copy cat cases of sexual crime are spreading all over the country like wild fire too.
A 39 yr.old woman who recently gave birth was abused by her husband after she rejected his sexual advances. She was threatened with a machete and locked in a room until she acceded to his demands.
Thankfully herscreams for help alerted a neighbor who called in the Police.

When I was a teenager I used to hang out with friends listening to songs.
Songs from jukeboxes in kopitiams. Songs played out by a local band.
I felt so much awe and admiration for them especially the guitarman. Always thinking and hoping that I one day could play the guitar just like him.
You know...almost every boy my age at that time aspired to be a guitarist. For the obvious reason that many girls will swoon over you. That was the trendy thing and best form of entertainment. That was our impression anyway.
But learning the instrument was a big deal. For one thing it was an very expensive affair to get a teacher in those days.
On the other hand the cost of a guitar was astronomical and certainly beyond the means of ordinary folks. So it was sorry for me to just be satisfied looking on by the side lines.
So most of us resorted to copying songs on exercise books and share with friends. learning to sing songs was mostly through the radio.
Even learning to dance was an arduous task. No TV. The only radio we had was in the house and that also had its time and place.
The people of the now generation never have it so good. They don't know how lucky they are wheb everything is served on a platter.
Anyway growing up during those challenging years have stood me in good stead today.
I have learned so much about life's ups and downs that have made me such a stronger person that I would not have dreamt of becoming...not that I am better than the guy next door. I have nothing to my name. But at least I can hold my head high and what I have is through sweat and toil.

If it's 10kmh it's windy. Your hair will flutter. You pull up your collar to keep warm.
If it's 50 kmh you will run to get away, to hide,
lest it blows you off your feet.
If its 100kmh, you will blown away to Kingdom come.
6 central islands of the Philippines. The damage to property and loss of human lives is incalcuable.
There is a limit to what man can do to mitigate the situation.
Divine intervention is prayed for in Katrina and more so in the Philippines.
Are these calamities a sign that the end is nigh?
I leave you to think about it. Think about what the good book says.
Not just think. Do what it says.
Why in blazes they are all named after women...I mean the typhoons. cyclones, tornados and hurricanes.
My kneejerk response on FB was because women can be vicious and violent like "Hell hath no fury worst than a woman's scorned."
I have no doubt the women will frown on what I wrote. Whatever I 'd better say sorry in advance lest they all come after my hide.
Now let's get serious. I have a chart from Philippines showing the breakdown of moneys flowing into the country. The donors were Sweden, Denmark, Norway, UAE, UK,Canada and Netherlands, totaling
1.5 Billion pesos.Not including wealth individuals from around the globe.

The other day a family friend received a scam call about her eldest son being in custody. And she had to pay a certain to get him out and case closed.
Stunned but she asked to hear his voice to affirm its not a hoax. The voice over the other end sounded like him. But she gathered her wits around her and insisted that she'd hear him once more. She did...no hoax in her swirling mind.
How much she muttered...RM50, 000 and we release him. The file will close on him. No further action.
Some how she bargained down to RM30, 000.
"Ok" the voice responded.
Just thenad if it was like God's intervention, his son who was supposedly detained by the 'police' he was ok in a certain place and did not aboyt the drama that unfolded earlier.
Relieved...that her son was saved, she hang up and sigh and whispered a prayer to Gid tor delivering her child.
It was a hoax....in very bad taste to say the least. If the son had not called...she would've fallen to it and poorer by RM30, 000.
So be cautious and alert.Take heed.
Because of what has happened to her could jolly well happen to you.
