JAKARTA, Saco-Indonesia.com — Mantan Wakil Presiden Jusuf Kalla menyatakan mendukung rencana Pemerintah untuk memangkas subsidi bahan bakar minyak (BBM). Menurut dia langkah tersebut perlu dilakukan untuk menyelamatkan perekonomian bangsa.

JK menjelaskan, kebijakan tersebut akan sangat berkaitan dengan kepentingan ekonomi bangsa. Menurut dia, pemangkasan subsidi BBM dapat memberi pengaruh untuk pembangunan nasional ke depannya.

"Ya, selayaknya. Tentu karena ini untuk kepentingan ekonomi bangsa," kata Kalla, seusai menghadiri peringatan Hari Lahir Pancasila di Tugu Proklamasi, Jakarta, Sabtu (1/6/2013).

Kalla beranggapan, beban masyarakat justru akan bertambah berat bila subsidi BBM tetap digelontorkan. Pasalnya, subsidi tersebut dianggapnya akan menimbulkan beban hutang luar negeri. "Itu subsidi itu kan dibayar dengan hutang, jangan lupa," katanya.

Seperti diberitakan, pemerintah berencana memangkas subsidi BBM. Dengan begitu, harga premium akan mengalami kenaikan menjadi Rp 6.500 per liter dan solar Rp 5.500 per liter.

Jika direalisasikan, sebanyak 15,53 juta keluarga miskin akan menerima uang tunai Rp 150.000 per bulan selama lima bulan dan kompensasi dalam bentuk program lainnya.

JK Mendukung Pemangkasan Subsidi BBM

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation
