Surfing the social media while working is a big no-no in most working environment, what more filming for a TikTok video during work.
Recently, a video showing a government officer filming a TikTok video while transporting a suspect to court in a police car had went viral on social media, with many criticising the officer for such practice.
In the video, the government officer can be seen in full uniform and a name tag as she begins to film herself in the car.
She then slowly move her camera to her right and showed the suspect’s face, who was handcuffed at the time. She then changed the camera’s view towards the driver who was honking incessantly at the other vehicles to give way.
The officer also wrote “Sis is going to court, please give way ya” in the caption of the video.
The original video that was posted on TikTok has since been deleted after she received heavy criticism from netizens. However, the video was being saved and reuploaded by the Facebook page Malaysian Crime Watch.
In the post, they pointed out that using TikTok while on duty violates the work culture and tarnishes the image of the government. They then called out to the authorities to impose disciplinary action on the officer.
In the comment section, netizens said that the officer was probably too young to understand the gravity of her actions.
On contrary, some suggests that she should be sacked for using TikTok while on duty.
A netizen also pointed out that why are the police putting up their siren and asked whether bringing a suspect to court is an emergency.
Meanwhile, Majority reported that the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) will be conducting an internal investigation into the matter and will take stern action if any rules were found to be broken.
