What is so wrong with this police they are supposed to serve us but they seem to be following the goverment and supporting BN.They are misusing their powers they are supposed to arrest ahmad ismail and not a blogger that reported it...
If thats the case arrest all the media directors and editors because they too did publish this news...
This is nonsense...
This is misuse of power how can they do this..
They are going against the law of democracy...
