JAKARTA, Saco-Indonesia.com — Wah Bapak Gubernur DKI Jakarta Joko Widodo terkejut ketika transjakarta yang ditumpanginya masuk ke dalam tol. Jokowi mengira seluruh transjakarta yang beroperasi di Jakarta melintas sesuai jalurnya.

Jokowi naik transjakarta setelah meresmikan peluncuran 30 bus baru transjakarta di Selter Pinang Ranti, Makasar, Jakarta Timur, Kamis (30/1/2014) siang. Selepas dari Selter Pinang Ranti, bus masuk ke Tol Dalam Kota. Jokowi yang duduk di kabin transjakarta bagian belakang tampak terkejut dan sempat ragu apakah rute ini benar atau tidak.

"Loh, loh, kok masuk tol ini ya?" tanya Jokowi kepada Kepala Dinas Perhubungan DKI Jakarta Udar Pristono.

"Iya Pak, memang masuk. Nanti keluar di Tol Cawang, lewat Gatot Subroto, langsung terus ke Pluit," jawab Pristono.

"Oo, baru tau saya, bener loh. Ya, saya yang koridor ini memang baru naik kali ini saja sih," ujar Jokowi.

Perjalanan rombongan Jokowi tersebut pun berakhir di Selter Pancoran. Dari situ, rombongan melanjutkan perjalanan dengan bus kota terintegrasi busway atau BKTB (bus sedang) ke salah satu rumah makan di bilangan Pancoran, Jakarta Selatan.

Sebelumnya diberitakan, Pemprov DKI mendatangkan 310 bus baru transjakarta pada 2014 ini. Dari jumlah itu, telah datang 90 bus (termasuk yang diluncurkan Kamis siang ini). Sementara sisa bus lain akan berlanjut hingga akhir Februari 2014 mendatang.

Sebanyak 30 bus pertama beroperasi di dua koridor, yakni Koridor II ekspres Pulogadung-Senayan dan Koridor III, yakni ekspres Kalideres-Harmoni-Bundaran Senayan. Sementara 30 bus selanjutnya beroperasi di Koridor 8 ekspres Ancol-PGC dan Koridor 3 Lebak Bulus-Harmoni. Adapun 30 bus ini hanya beroperasi di Koridor 9, yakni Pinang Ranti-Pluit.

Naik Transjakarta Lewat Tol Dalam Kota, Jokowi Kaget

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

Police Rethink Long Tradition on Using Force
