    Default Backpacker of 30 years says KL is most dangerous place he has ever been to

    [URL]http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/singaporeseen/this-urban-jungle/backpacker-of-30-years-says-kl-is-most-dangerous-place-he-has-ever-been-to[/URL]


    A backpacker from the United Kingdom has visited countries like Africa and Yemen, but picks Kuala Lumpur as the most dangerous place he has ever been to.
    Dave Ramsay had related his experience about being stabbed and mugged in the city on travel site Virtual Tourist.
    The incident took place near Hard Rock Cafe in Jalan Sultan Ismail on Oct 5.
    Dave was stabbed in the chest and then slashed across the arm with a knife, before the robber fled with his bag. Dave said there was no regard for his life since he was attacked before being robbed, instead of the other way round.
    However, his ordeal did not end there.
    Not only did it take 30 minutes to reach a hospital as most taxis did not stop for him after seeing blood, police were also ineffective and inefficient.
    According to Dave, security at local venues did nothing. Tourist police also did not ask anything about the robber and only produced a report for an insurance claim, making the victim feel they had no interest in pursuing the criminal.
    Dave even called the tourist police office a "conveyor belt of victims coming in".
    "This place needs avoiding big time. I have travelled to Africa, Yemen, and SE Asia for nearly 30 years and I am not a squeamish person but I genuinely believe this to be the most dangerous place I have been to, due to the vast number of incidents and the frequency of them. It's epidemic," wrote Dave.

    So if he had been mugged and stabbed and slashed and dump into kallang river, he would say SG is the most dangerous place he has ever been to? Crap.

    well, he didn't have quite the same experience in war-riddled coutries like yemen eh.

    plus, if he was stabbed and dumped into kallang river, i doubt our local police will just give him a form to claim insurance, while sitting by doing nothing.

    Colonial mentality. He expect all asians to be servant and serve him. Malaysians dont give a damn. Only sg will do tat.

    i beg to differ. if we were in his shoes, won't we expect the police to do more than just hand out a form?!?!?

    this has got nothing to do with colonial mentality or not. look at how efficient our police was when nabbing the culprits that slashed and robbed FTs around the kallang area.

    I hope one day u get to visit Malaysia Police before u made such comments.

    I went to report a robbery case once, I wrote my statement and offer to help the policeman type onto his computer. Later met the "supervisor" just to tell me chances of catching is low.

    Thank you, Malaysia.
