  • Wow. Sound like a double edged sword. A friend of mine was down there and he was hanging out with an off duty police that took him to all these gambling establishments. He called it the underground hot spots! They only reason why he hung out with this person because he was a policemen and he knew that no matter what they did he would not get arrested. Not to mention he was paying for all the food and drinks. They seem to love a free ride over their.
  • I do agree with your sentiments in general Elvisbektasevic, though I have to say from what I know about Malaysia, I hear its already pretty harsh on crimes involving drugs ... a mandatory death sentence for possession of a few ounces of cannabis is crazy! Sentences like that must surely be dissuasive enough to give them a little time to tackle other crimes!
  • Oh police, always some bad news when i see the word "police". I hate them, and Malaysian police want to say something about gambling? I cant believe, they have a lot of other problems not just gambling. Some of people in Malaysia haven't anything to eat and drink, they have to do something. Massage for their police is: Destroy drug and hardest criminal not gambling. Thanks!
