I am a business owner in Taipan and is disgusted by the lack of police patrol in Taipan USJ 10. My shop was robbed by 2 Chinese men on 1st January 2006, one with a limp and butcher knife and another accomplice on a motorbike outside. 2 weeks later, my neighbour on my left was robbed by the same two Chinese dicks and now today (16 April) my neighbours on the right is robbed in broad daylight. Same 2 robbers. At least 5 customers and 4 staff was in his shop at that time. It's easy money to them and the chances of getting caught is slim.

Gods knows how many other shops theses 2 dicks have robbed ?

Instead of allocating more police patrols, the cops actually admits defeat and told me that they know of the crime situation but is powerless. One even advice me not to stay in USJ.

"kekurangan kakitangan"

If there is any same business owners in Taipan out there facing the same predicament, please email me and lets all contribute and set up a security patrol.

OR does it take a loss of life before we act ?

Outdoorzone,
Is your neighbour operates an optical shop? I was there (optical shop) a few days ago. The saleman there said that his neighbour was robbed a few weeks earlier. The robbers went over to their (optical) shop but did not manage to get anything. Wonder if they (the robbers) came back to finish their unfinished job :rolleyes:

Nope not the optical shop but the ladies fashion shop.

Ask any shop owner in Taipan of robbery in that area and you will hear many horror stories of who's who on the "Top Ten Recently Robbed List"

Any comments MP Lee Hwa Beng?

Gather the community together and set up a security patrol. It's time we took our own security and well being into our own hands. Or do we shake it off and let the robbers, snatch thiefs create havoc and instill fear right in our own backyard.

When I was staying in Bandar Utama near Centerpoint, there were many cases of snatch thief in that area. Many resident knew who got robbed, who's house got burglared, who's daughter handbag was snatched sometimes by knifepoint. all it took was for the residents to stand up and say "THAT ENOUGH", contribute RM 50 for 3 months and have 24 hours security patrol. Now it's a zero crime area. If I was a snatch thief, and an area has security guards patrol, I would probably move on to USJ TAIPAN. Easy pickings...

I would forsee a big problem here. Taipan being a business district is opened to public access. How are the guards going to manage the security here without crossing the line of the police jurisdiction. If they are too hard, the public will complain. If they are too soft, it is a sheer waste of money. Much thoughts have to be given before a working model is adopted.

1. install a camera with film on. Sign says KAMERA di sini/here/cher li/tamil?
2. install alarm with BIG RED SIGN say "ALARM DISINI/HERE/cher li/ tamil?" and very PROMINENT BIG RED BELLS.
3. Install Alarm buttons within easy reach...never mind that no one is coming to your rescue...at least the loud ringing of the alarm will shock the robbers and who knows he might just get a heart attack and drop death.

Unfortunately for you, your's easy Picking Street and he will return for more.

Else, pay the local police statiojn ala goldsmith shop where the cops come by every once in a while to sign in the log book... and who knows, if the timing is right, a butcher knife will meet a S&W .45. That will be nice.

My staff just told me another snatch thief today just in front of my shop. Luckily the victim who just came out of the clinic managed to hold on to her handbag as 2 perps on motorbike tried to robbed her.

What I suggest is 2 team of security patrol on motorbike with flashing lights. Just flashy enough to annouce to any bad apples that is planning something ugly in taipan. All contributors to the "Save Taipan from turning into Hell fund" will have the mobile phones numbers of the security guards for emergency. just my 2 sens

Its really sad Outdoorzone to hear of all these robberies and snatch thefts. As ordinary citizens, there is really nothing much we can do except to be more careful. I have the funny feeling the cops are slow in acting to let the rakyats feel the brunt of the Commission Report, I dunno, just a strange feeling. I said this not without basis. Last weekend, when I crossed into Taman Seri Tebrau from Singapore to have the famous Mee Rebus in JB, I witnessed a snatch theft. I told the police I saw the whole incident and offered myself as a witness. Instead, he told me "padan muka, tak suka polis sekarang nak mintak tolong, cis!". Boy, was I shocked! He didn't know I was Malaysian because I was driving a Sing-registered car.... Yup, I think the public is getting some lashback from the highly-publicised police commission report, I think its not right, but this is Malaysia Bolehland, right? :mad:

rakancop konon .. www.rakancop.net ... Outdoorzone, see whether u can get a quicker response thru this, keep the number with u ...


still don't understand why they need to maintain so many numbers for every states, can't they just give us one general number for reporting and the call center note down our msg and route internally?

As I mentioned in another forum, all business owners should be given a gun license to protect themselves, because the police can't do anything about it, we might as well protect ourselves.

Love to see their face when we pull out a gun when they show thier parang.

yah..and everyone else too :eek: This way, imagine the shock of the cubchai ragut with a .22 saturday nite special facing off GrandMa Ah Mui with a Magnum...it's would be fun to hear shots every day, every where, no? Or Nasi Kandar Naseem putting his Colt to the face of Freeloader Freddy, who has a home made .22 under the table, aiming at Naseem's family jewels. This too would be fun.
Or me taking having a shoot out with tin-canners, over reckless driving in SS19. That will be massacre.

Taipan bizzmen cannot wait for the police/autho/lwb to solve everything...since the victim already has the experience in engaging private security in his home ground, apply then the same tactics in his bizz area. Unless, 'em taipan bizzmen want us, the customers to also chip in for the security guards? :confused:

I think cameras may help ..

Question who's going to man it ? MPSJ ? Police ?
Link connections to MPSJ ops centre ?

In addition, with the superb double parking .. the chasing robbers would be a problem..

Actually this was the same situation that happened in Bangsar long time ago..snatch thieves and robberies..btw it is still happening there... recently..orang kena tikam..strudles shop case

Aren't we tax payers? What are the tax for if not for paying the salary of public servants and the government plus public ammenities and development. They are suppose to provide security to the people. Now it seems like we have to employ security services. If that is the case what is point of paying tax and living in fear.

I wonder how many policemen/policewomen are there looking after USJ? What is the effective norm of number police personel is to the population of the area. What is the patroling norm?

Talking of police patrol. Haven't really seen a police patrol beat walking around USJ or Taipan since I started staying here in 1998. No wonder robbery and snatch thieves are common around USJ.

Something is really wrong if the police has admitted defeat in their fight against crime. Wonder what has our MP to say abotu this??

Shopkeepers should consider installing CCTV. It will at least discourage them from hitting his shop. I'm sure the robbers would prefer to rob one without a CCTV system.

Ultimately, it is still the police that can help. Really hope that things will change for the better and their manpower needs would be increased and that USJ would finally get a bigger station than just the pondok now.

Come Labour Day, would have to drop off some good Tiger Biskut Susu and Canned Milo drinks for them lah.... They really love these items lah.... :D

Last week, The new Bird's nest shop got robbed of 250k (plenty of CCTV) and one of Starbucks staff was robbed after she withdraw 10k from Maybank. What's happening in USJ Taipan? Do the robbers even care whether you have CCTV or not.
