3 Killed at a Court in Jakarta


Three men were killed in a clash between two rival ethnic gangs, from Flores and Ambon, in front of the South Jakarta District Court yesterday afternoon, 

This bloody clash was an escalation of clash between both gangs at the same Court last week, in a trial of two men accused of killing two men of  rival gang at the Blowfish Nightclub in Jakarta on 24 April 2010.
After that trial, both suspects were attacked by the rival gang, although they were guarded by the Police.

According to the news media, there were hundreds of members of the feuding gangs using firearms, knives and machetes, compared to the Police who were only equipped with shields and rubber sticks.
Beside three dead, twelve men were also wounded in the clash, including three Police officers.

The Police plan to change the venue for next sessions trial of the Case, so as to prevent similar incident.

Considering that both gangs have already clashed one week before, I felt that the bloody clash should not have happened if the Police have taken much better precautionary actions to prevent it.
Especially that earlier in the morning the same Court has tried the very high profile case of former Chief of Detectives of the national Police Cmnr. Gen. Susno Duaji.

Though I tend to be a sceptic when people ask for more 'law and order'. But this incident really calls for tough action. Wild West shoot outs in the city should be impossible. The state owes it's citizens to keep the public domain free from violence. That's one of the basic principles of a state of law.

Hi Colson,
Many people are are wondering how can one of the very best terrorist fighter in the world could failed in handling bad guys like bandits, robbers, etc.
In this case people are begging for a serious will to impose law and order.

TUKANG CoLoNG,
Mungkin lebih tepat disebut jahat karena mengakibatkan kematian.

a sad incident. I guess keeping the location secret where the trial would take place could have prevented it. Anyways, people learn from their mistakes and i hope this type of untoward incidents wont occur more in the future.

Seiri Hanako said...

ya TUHAN
kenapa ni negara makin brutal aja..
ato se3benarnya memang sudah begini dari dahulu kala
namun media baru akhir2 ini meliput n menyiarkan y?

kenapa nggak ada kemajuan???

H. Nizam said...

@Ibucketbot,
Keep the next location a secret would be a good idea, but basically Court trials should be opne to public, except for cases related to children, sex, and state secrets.

@Supri,
Thank you for the kind words.

@Seiri Hanako,
Memang kejadian-kejadian tragis akhir2 ini sangat menyedihkan.
Tapi mari berpikir positif dan harap agar tidak terulang lagi dimasa depan.
