Stop the Violence in Johor Bahru

Johor Bahru, the southernmost city in Peninsula Malaysia is a popular shopping hub for Singaporeans. With their currency more than twice that of the Malaysian ringgit, Singaporeans do their shopping, even grocery shopping across the border. This has contributed much to the city's (Johor Bahru) economy as well as traffic both vehicular as well as human traffic.

Unfortunately, JB (as Johor Bahru is commonly known) has lately been known to have the highest crime-rate in the whole of Malaysia - KL is next in line. This is really unnerving. Just yesterday, there were two incidences of rape both within hours of each other. The government is stepping up efforts. It's about time!!
