05/11/2012 Indonesia (The Jakarta Globe) – Is there any national institution that, despite the enormous amount of its authority, is more powerless than the police? The police always show their incompetence when it comes to dealing with angry radical groups.

Actually, the police could use a therapy session or two to enhance the performance of their batons. The men in brown are the authorized and legal guardians of the civilians, but it seems that their batons suddenly go limp every time the bamboo-wielding radical groups appear. Every time the bamboo gang shows up, police batons begin to shrink to a microscopic size, leaving the safety of the citizens in the hands of the mob.

The man who made “the police are not responsible if anything happens” as standard procedure must have been regarded highly by the radicals. The same warning has been given to different groups who are threatened when they seek the police’s protection.

The police said the same to the congregation of the GKI Yasmin. They told that to the Ahmadi members and also the Shia. They told that to the church members of HKBP Filadelfia. When the protest was held against the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) a couple of months ago, the warning was also handed to the protesters. The people in Salihara had their turn on Friday to hear the golden warning of the police, and Gajah Mada University in Yogyakarta couple of days ago was the latest to receive such warning.
