    Was jogging there this morning about 6am. Thought someone was sleeping there on the bench and did not realize it was a body! So the murder or whatever must have happened before 6am. The park was not lighted. Noted that there used to be lighting with lamp post foundations all over the park, but the posts were removed and the cable disconnected. It is a good park, except the maintenance, as usual of all MPSJ parks, is poor. Wonder whether MPSJ officials, the YDP included, ever "turun padang" to see the actual situation of the facilities under their charge, or they just confine themselves to the type of "turun padang" to the beautiful padang within the MPSJ building compound.

    Nowadays it seems murders are happening everywhere and whenever. Just wonder we have a police force of over 80,000 people, which works out to be 1 to 300 population, and this I believe is one of the highest ratio in the world, but we hardly see any police patrol. If there had been more frequent patrol, the crime situation could be under better better. Is the Police leadership keeing too many personnel in the office doing admin job rather than deploying them to the field? We have been hearing that the police is short of manpower. I wonder a ratio of 1 to 300 is still not sufficient!

    My house is just facing the park. That park was lighted for less than a week some times before, with some nice decorative lamp post until some idiots came and stole all the lamps while we were in deep sleep. Not only that, the steel benches were also taken away. An act of sick people who disrespect public amenities.

    Last night murder might not happen if not because of those idiots.

    Crime rate here in sj/usj is increasing. I was told by the policeman who was there at the scene told me that those criminals are starting to make sj/usj their operation area.

    So, let us be careful.

    The Spore Straits Times was pretty restrained in its reporting of this incident. On page 3 today, the report was headlined "S'porean man shot dead in Selangor park" and referred to a "heavily tattooed Singaporean debt collector" who was shot 3 times in the back.

    It also said that the Msian police believe it was a gangland shooting.

    The deceased is "believed to be a secret society member whose role was to collect debts from those who had borrowed from his gang, which has roots on both sides of the Causeway".

    "The shooting is believed to have been sparked by a dispute he had with a Malaysian gang, who had accused him of 'trespassing' into their area".

    "His associates in Singapore told The Straits Times that Mr Tan (the deceased) flew to KL on Tuesday to collect a 'five-figure betting debt' which a businessman owed the gang".

    "Singapore police spokesman Stanley Norbert said officers here are assisting the Malaysian police in their investigations".

    "Yesterday's shooting has raised questions again about the links between organised crime syndicates in both countries".

    __________________________________________________ _______

    In 2002/03, MPSJ beautified our Padang at Jalan USJ 2/4S.
    Soil & ground of the field was resurfaced & flattened and suitable for a football field. They also replaced some faulty lamp-posts with at least 12 new ones and all were brightly lighted including the old ones. A month or two later, some of the new lamp-posts keep on missing and within six months there was not a single lamp-post insight (including the old ones which was lighted at the Reflexology Path before MPSJ's contractor commenced the work). What is left now is bare wires on the ground waiting for someone to be electrocuted. An "Eye-Sore" indeed !!!

    If MPSJ had not embarked to "overhaul & beautify' the Padang in the first place, we could still have some lights from the old lamp-posts in the park especially at the Reflexology Path.

    Who is the "culprit' that stole all the lamp-posts ???
    Could the above Jalan USJ 4/7 Padang also suffer the same fate :
    that is the work of a "RECYCLING-JOB" ???
    Tax-Payers money well spent ???
