Crocodile Dumbee

National Police Chief Bambang Hendarso Danuri has finally apologized for the gecko and crocodile terms first popularized by criminal investigation unit head Susno Duadji for Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and police respectively few months ago.  
Some said it's just too late. The metaphor turns out to be a mess, not only for police, but president SBY. SBY's inaction in the dispute between KPK and police has disappointed millions of people, including those voted for him in July 8 election. Millions of people have been rallying behind the "gecko" in a "people power" against the "crocodile".
The police chief urged the society to stop using the gecko vs crocodile metaphor. He even claimed himself as a member of "gecko", not crocodile.
As for Susno "crocodile" Duadji, looks like that he will find the end of his career as head of criminal investigation unit.
