JOHOR BARU: The police will remain strict in enforcing the Movement Control Order (MCO) and enhanced Movement Control Order, but will use discretion in dealing with children.
Johor Police Chief Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the police would never arrest children, as it would leave a deep trauma on them.
He was commenting on a video of Orang Asli kids in Taman Sri Banang, Kampung Minyak Beku in Batu Pahat, who were stopped by a police team passing through the area.
“We are strict in terms of enforcing the MCO, but we need to be creative in approaching kids because they are naive, ” Comm Ayob said on Tuesday (April 14).
He said the kids were scolded by the police after receiving a request from the village chief to help monitor the kid’s activities in the village.
The incident occurred at about 2.30pm on Saturday (April 11), after the patrol team, comprising lance corporal Safwan Rushdan and corporal Mohd Hidayat Ahmad, found the children walking behind a park.
A 2min-46second video was recorded by the corporal and forwarded to the village chief before it went viral on social media.
In the video, the children are seen crying and trying to “negotiate” to get home, promising not to go out again.
In the process of reprimanding them, the policemen also bought RM5.50 worth of product from one of the children.
The video was uploaded by a Facebook user named Dzul SP, and at press time, had received close to 60,000 views and been shared more than 97,000 times.
The video received positive feedback for the way the patrol team handled the matter.
“He even supported the kids while nagging them, ” Zulazri Ruzuwan said in his comment.
Facebook user, Jack Lee Beng Hwee said this was a better way to teach the children a lesson, instead of just scolding.
“This policeman actually set a good example on how to teach the kids, and this can be applied by parents, teachers or any elderly people in public, ” he said.
Meanwhile, Fish Lim wrote that it was a valuable lesson for the kids.
“Thank you to our kind PDRM for this lesson. You did well to tell them the seriousness of this outbreak and the law. And thank you for supporting the ‘kuih’.
“May God bless you, this is the best thing on the Internet today, ” she said.
