I do not understand why those bicycling for peace are being harassed and their bikes torched, while gangsta riders on motorbikes terrorizing the streets of Johor, KL, Alor Setar, etc. are being allowed to still roam around terrorizing the nation. Make our streets safer. Beef up the highway police force if we must. Have a national crackdown, give them motorcycle education, or do whatever to curb their need for speed.
Protect the JERIT protesters instead. Show us Malaysians what freedom, justice, and democracy means -- to stay relevant as a government.
What have become of us?
Go for Mat Rempits and not Mat Jerits! Watch these Malaysian Low-Budget Hells Angels in action:
What has 50 years of Malaysian education produced? Why do we hear them glorified as 'talented"? Is this talent? Or 'terror'? Or 'death on two wheels? Let us go back to our educational drawing board; our education system is already 'rempit-ized'
I have a sense that the cases of gangsterism and bullying of teachers will continue to increase. More private schools will be built and Malaysians will lose confidence in their public schools. More private schools mean more divisions in society. The rich will produce better schools and the poor will be left behind in this rempitised system we have all created in the name of the New Economic Policy.
Teachers do not have the necessary concepts and skills to deal not only with the Millennial children (high-tech, high gadgetry, low attention span, low school-tolerance) but also the rempitised children who have low skills of reading, writing and computing.
Children left behind will be those who become Mat and Minah Rempit. They will be destructive to the classroom process and will translate their social anger into counter-productive and destructive activities. These are the ones who will be made criminals as a result of an uncaring education system that criminalises the human mind by placing unmotivated, uncreative and unprepared teachers to develop the untapped geniuses in our classrooms.
Should we rename the Mat and Minah Rempit as Mat Cemerlang (Excellent/Glorious Ones) as suggested by an Umno leader? Should we build a racing circuit for them to continue drag racing?
I do not think we should. I think those who propose such names and measures of glorification need radical counseling and education on the meaning of education. I think it shows a clear laco of understanding of the root of the problem. Wrong diagnosis of social ill.
I think we should beef up the highway police force and stop illegal drag racing, round up the Mat Rempit and send them for six-month rehabilitation in rempit camps near Perlis, guarded by graduates of the National Service. We should build a somewhat safe motor-cross clearings/zones and let them drag-race happily in these areas until they are exhausted.
In between these sessions we ought to give them a good and safe motorcycle education so that they will understand what it means to ride safely and not endanger the life of others. We can have the Biro Tata Negara write the module so that good indoctrination programmes will be used more on these rempitised and rempitising youth instead of those who do not need to be indoctrinated into any form of totalitarianism.
Peace-loving, rest-needing, night-sleeping citizens affected by the activities of rempitism will appreciate this radical programme of reconfiguring the mind of the rempitised youth.
