THE REAL TOWERING MALAY
Sedition (by wikipedia)
Sedition is a term of law which refers to covert conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority as tending toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel.
Because sedition is typically considered a subversive act, the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where those legal codes have a traceable history, there is also a record of the change of definition for what constituted sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within study of persecution.
The difference between sedition and treason consists primarily in the subjective ultimate object of the violation to the public peace. Sedition does not consist of levying war against a government nor of adhering to its enemies, giving enemies aid, and giving enemies comfort. Nor does it consist, in most representative democracies, of peaceful protest against a government, nor of attempting to change the government by democratic means (such as direct democracy or constitutional convention).
Put simply, sedition is the stirring up of rebellion against the government in power. Treason is the violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or state and has to do with giving aid to enemies or levying war. Sedition is more about encouraging the people to rebel, when treason is actually betraying the country.
Now to many of us, we know who is the worried person (no names cause I might get to bunk with RPK). We also know who needs to hide some shit. We also know who missuse our Men-in-Blue for their own benefits. Now no other BN supporter had ever been hand cuffed over a seditious remark or posting and we all know there are such seditious attempts. Neither did Men-in-Blue come knocking on their doors. Even AP cloners and Money Laundering Fake Palace Builder in BakKutTeh town were allowed to walk free and no Men-in-Blue officers dares to hand cuff them even when many police reports were made.
Sick that this country is SO DAM SICK. Its really SICK to the point that someone not important (actually knows too much) can be blown up to bits by some person/s that has access to C4 which is to be from our special Men-in-Blue. It is also SICK that the Drama Minggu Ini court case is heading to dead ends like all Pak Lah’s projects.
Now I really wish defacto PM in waiting Anwar just make some party hoppers hop over and pull out the PM post from Pak Lah feet while he’s still busy with Umno’s problems. That way Anwar can free all ISA detainees and throw RPK’s case out by throwing the head of Men-in-Blue out. Later he can dig out all the dirt on all BN ministers and throw them is jail for raping this nation for so many years. As Anwar was formerly from the wolf’s pack, I’m sure he knows where to start digging.
To Raja Petra, you are a REAL NATIONAL HERO and ‘Let’s send the Altantuya murderers to hell‘
