How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Anyone forgot about his white BMW 6 series WVV 5391?

This car has been left in the carpark below Boulevard Offices, Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur for the past 3 weeks! Those who are aware of its existence are wondering aloud whether it was forgotten (case of Alzheimer?), deliberately left there while on an overseas trip; or had been used for dubious purposes...

The luxury car...

The exact location in the carpark...

The message from someone who forwarded this news to me:

Does anyone know of anybody looking for a missing BMW, number plate WVV 5391? I noticed that we have had this BMW parked under the Boulevard Offices, Mid Valley City at C56 P2 for at least the past 3 weeks since early November 2012.
So, our group of colleagues have started to make various assumptions:
Assumption #1: The owner of this car is very rich and has a variety of expensive cars but his/her house has ran out of space, so he/she’s parked the car in Mid Valley City only to almost entirely forget about his/her car.
Our recommendation: Please come and retrieve your car. I’m sure you can park it at an even more obscure location like Mont’ Kiara, I mean have you even seen the number of residents in each condo block there? I’ll bet its pretty easy to find an empty spot there.
Assumption #2: Being in Malaysia, there may be a slight possibility that this vehicle has been stolen and been used for some illegal activity. This is possibly after the heist/other illegal activity the criminals have left the car in Mid Valley City.
Our recommendation: Please come and retrieve your car! Make sure you make a police report as well to assist our police in getting more information on any illegal activities that have taken place using this vehicle.
Assumption #3: The owner came from a drunken session somewhere else, continued over in Mid Valley City and took a taxi back. He/she cannot remember where he/she put the car, so a report has been made, but no one knows where the car is.
Our recommendation: Your car is here! In Mid Valley City! Please come and retrieve your car… PDRM, if you are looking for the said car, please note that it is in Mid Valley City.
Assumption #4: The shopper has been lost for the past 3 weeks and is still looking for his/her car.
Our recommendation: Your car is here!

The car park operator should be doing his job properly and check on vehicles parked overnight and long term.
Is it finder keepers?

I am half expecting the owner to complain about my invasion of privacy. Maybe he is overseas. But surely, besides the car park operators, someone somewhere should know the owner.

the funny thing is that the moment your post came up, the car that was left there for several weeks disappeared! Wonder if Mid Valley came about your post and "claimed" it?

More likely, someone notified Mid Valley car park management. Or just someone who happened to read my post and knows the owner could have done it. There's also the 'word of mouth' effect too. Anyway, all's well ends well.
