Salam, to fellow bloggers and readers of this self proclaimed blog!

It has been awhile since the last time I posted my writing in this blog. I however, did notice a lot of incidents have taken place during my absence from the blogging world. What attracts my attention most was the news of the late Amirul Rashid Hamzah, a 15 year old boy who was shot dead by the authorities (i.e – the police).

The incident above was indeed an unwelcome one, both for the family of the victim and the police. None of this might happened if (just to make an assumption) Amirul had called up his parents first or any of his eldest siblings to follow and help his friend rather than taking the risk of driving the car without his parents’ consent!

I quote John Mc Clane, the anti hero character played by Bruce Willis in the Die Hard series; “Man! I am a guy at the wrong place and the wrong time” would be the perfect jargon to describe the whole scenario!

First of all, I would like to clearly state my stand on this incident where Amirul’s parent, the police force and the public should be put on blame.

We can’t put the entire blame on the police force as their reaction was based on the present circumstances. Anyone who is in that position would resort to necessary force to diffuse the present situation they are facing with. The police were responding based on a situation where the late Amirul was driving recklessly and this could jeopardize the safety of the public.

Aminul Rashid was a victim of circumstances. He was a boy who was at the wrong time and place. If we looked at the report made by his friend here, it is clearly showed that the late Amirul had a noble intention of helping his friend, who was having a problem with his bike. All the poor boy wanted to do was to pick up his friend and send him home.

According to the report, in the course of action Amirul had accidently grazed one of the cars parked there. When the owner of the car realized what had happened, he took a chase with Amirul, accompanied by his friends on motorcycles.

I strongly believed that the poor boy was more worried of his safety from the bunch of guys who was chasing him and feared that they might beat him!

The main problem that we are facing in hand is when the public tends to become a vigilante and will take action based on their own judgment!

I am sure we will be seeing the same case again and again in near future, for as long as the society refused to change their mindset, we will forever remain a victim of circumstances.
