Time for the PUBLIC RELATIONS DIRECTOR in PDRM to Do Damage Control?

I believe PDRM has a senior officer in charge of Public Relations.
I suggest it is time he or she gets down to some serious work to repair the damage to the image of the PDRM with respect to the following incidents:

  1. The massive traffic jams in KL after Parliament was deemed a "No Go" zone by the police.
  2. The arrest of Anwar before the 2pm deadline.

You can read the story of the latter from the malaysiakini article here:

"CID chief defends Anwar's arrest"

http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/86231

According to the article, Anwar was arrested because

"He was arrested as we had reason to believe he was not going to show up. We wish to point out that Anwar had initially agreed to meet us on Monday but failed to keep his appointment."

The arrest in whichever location would have been less damaging to the police image if they had waited untill 2pm. After all it would have taken just another hour and they can afford to wait another hour to show that Anwar would not keep his word.

By acting hastily, the police damage their credibility and more people will lose faith in the PDRM. After all, the alleged act can of sodomy hardly be a threat to national security unlike the murder that is linked to defense contract payments.
