Great stuff the future members of Putera UMNO are made of – they have all the potential to be someone’s Sturmabteilung or ‘Brownshirts’ stormtroopers.
A mob of Mat Rempit attacked the Kubang Semang police station on Sunday. 20 of the bikkies threw rocks at the police post to register their protest against police for arresting two of their friends.
What had occurred was the police responding to a public complaint that a group of bikkies were making a nuisance of themselves at an overhead bridge along the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway. The Mat Rempit tried to speed off on seeing the cops but two of them fell after colliding with a policeman’s motorcycle.
The policemen took the two, just aged 16 and 20, on their way back to the police station but were tailed by the rest of the bikkies. That’s when the rock throwing began.
The barrage was fearsome enough for the policemen to speed off and seek shelter at the Kubang Semang mosque. I wonder whether the rock throwing continued at the mosque. The police holding up there were forced to call for back up. When other police turned up, the bikkies left the mosque area.
However, the Mat Rempit regrouped again at the police station to throw several rocks at the law officers.
Great credentials for future ... activities.
Meanwhile over on the other side of the Peninsula, in Kota Baru, police claimed they had issued 5,600 summons on some 2,000 Mat Rempit since the start of this year while seizing 1,429 motorcycles on suspicion of illegal modifications.
Police also revealed that they conducted a total of 120 operations since January to round up the bikkies who terrorise other road users with reckless speeding or racing.
In fact some of those Rempits were young enough for the police to alert their parents who were advised to monitor their children constantly.
Nothing like UMNO Putera 'catching' them to train them up.
