Another brutal murder in JB

This chilling crime deeply disturbs my sister-in-law who lives in JB.

Woman robbed and stabbed

JOHOR BARU: A 21-year-old clerk was robbed and brutally stabbed to death as her father slept in another room.

Lim Hoon Hwa’s assailant came through the roof of her double-storey house in Taman Skudai Baru early yesterday morning, ransacked the living room and found a few handphones before making his way into her room through the bathroom.

Johor Baru (North) OCPD Asst Comm Ruslan Hassan said Lim fought her assailant before being stabbed in the head, chest and abdomen.

Her father found her body at 8.30am. The maid was away.

“The victim’s father was sleeping in another room and he did not hear anything,” he said.

Police found a zinc cutter on top of the roof. ACP Ruslan said the body had been sent to Sultanah Aminah Hospital for post-mortem. He urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212 999 or the nearest police station.


Why does it seem to me that the criminals are getting bolder and more brutal in JB? Can't the police force step up efforts to make our streets and homes a lot more safer than it is these days?

I just don't understand how such terrible crimes could have been allowed to happen again and again, as if accepting that it is unavoidable, is part and parcel of the Malaysian way of life.

Is it really?

KL is just as bad - just discovered a woman's body in a bag in Segambut yesterday.

JB is a transit town and it seems some baddies from Singapore commit crimes in JB and then go back to Spore.

Simple. This is the price everybody have to pay for the "physical development" of the BN government. When education fails to bring up upright citizens, supports a growing population of drug addicts, creats unemployment by raiding enforcement agencies that forces many young people from honest living (i.e. illegal VCDs, closing down spa health centers etc). The people deserves the government they get. So stop complaining about crimes when you elect the government, state of federal candidates.

HJ: I'm inclined to blame the lack of proper enforcement programmes that has contributed to the increase in violent crimes in JB and elsewhere.

Zewt: My sis-in-law will agree with you wholeheartedly tht JB is indeed a cowboy town of the worst kind.

Anon: If I never ever vote for BN I am entitled to complain all I want, right?
