Go for Mat Rempit, Not Mat Jerit!

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.

Rehabilitate them!

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.

This is Malaysia. Those with connections are allowed to do wrongs many times.
Our police seems to be doing the wrong things all the time.
If they are not careful, PDRM will one day end up like the police force in one of our neighbouring country.

To echo the anonymous commenter above, this is Malaysia.

Home to all forms of immorality.

If you make a police report on Mat rempit and the next day your house's window mirror will be broken into pieces.How the hell the rempits know the address of the person who make the police report?Hmmm...I'm still wondering who's behind the growing numbers of rempits.

You're heading for a big disaster if you're defensive and supportive for all the wrong doings of rempits in the name of race and religion.

This is Malaysia. Why mat rempit? just call them samseng motor, or some other humiliating name.
Follow with the "authority" coming out with a pronouncement that samseng motor is not allow in our "culture".

I call this Zimbwabwe-sation Malaysia.

It is only way to make sure those rule the government continue to rule by sending more mat-rempit to the street.
As like Zimbabwe, where the Mugabe gang are rampage the street to create havoc to make sure Robert continue to rule.

i find no joy and thrill on rempit.i view rempit as immoral and only burden other people.mat rempit feels they are the kings when they move in big group.they think they're all tough guys by riding fast and that cheap motorcycle stunt.

the number of mat rempit seems to escalate after the release of the movie "remp-it".hmmm...should "remp-it" be the one of the factor for this growing numbers of local Valentino Rossi on kapchai?

The guv don't like too much work to do. It's easier to catch stuff that don't consume fossil fuels. Shame, though, that in terms of law enforcement, the country ain't propagating environmental values.

And I thought when people are poor, economically ostracized and angered, they'd become terrorists. Here in the city we have terrorists used by the government to keep people in their confused lines.

Many times police prefer to arrest non-criminal cos they don't run, they don't hide. They don't act on criminals cos hard job for them on the chasing, seeking and identifying. Lazy cops of M'sia... cos lack of skills. Arresting innocent people don't need skills, they looove it.
