As an American businessperson living in Johor I explore territories and opportunities in the region of Johor Bahru, in doing so I found myself beaten severely by a port property security guard at the SOUTHERN REGION OF MARINE DEPARTMENT, JB OFFICE near Country Garden, Danga Bay. The event sent me to the hospital and after reporting the incident to officials no action seemed to be taken against the assailant leaving him still posted at the site where citizens and tourists remain at risk for further violent attacks. Malaysia is known for violence and there is no wonder given such lack of response and consequences for violent behavior.
