They have mutated

There was once when the chief of traffic police made a press statement saying that they will ‘go all out’ to get them. That ‘go all out’ proclamation ended up as a few road blocks and operations which can be counted with one hand. We know where they gather, we know when they gather, we know they are often up to no good… but the police did nothing about them.

But the question is… are they still as brainlessly harmless as they used to be?

No, they are no longer a bunch of pest who probably complained about the rise in petrol price but will yet gleefully waste petrol by strolling around at night.

No, they no longer just ride in a horde and weave around your vehicle and irritate the shit out of you if you so encounter them at night.

No, they no longer just race amongst them for drugs, booze and pussies.

No, they no longer just perform some stupid stunts in the name of thrill and fame.

No, they are no longer the same… they have mutated…

Hop around some blogs and you will probably be able to read many horrific experiences of some bloggers with these hideous creatures. What more… they are so daring nowadays that some of their destructive acts can be seen in broad daylight. Some of us here would probably have terrible stories of our own.

I have personally had
an encounter with them several years ago, before they were granted ‘national heritage’ status by a certain group of people. I wonder if I will be able to survive their onslaught should the same thing happen to me now. Some of my friends and friends’ friends even had some experiences which can be quite… sensitive. Ya’ know, things that I can't say but we all know it anyway… I do not need to say more.

Many stories have been told about the rampages of the horde. If the mainstream media can report about properties were damaged, windscreen smashed and in some case, lives were lost, can you possibly imagine what actually happen in real life? You can I can only wonder…

Yet… can we do anything about them? Can we expect the police to deliver their promise to ‘go all out’ against them? No… not when a certain group of people even granted them the licence to play police. Of course, we all know very well that these pests would rather play villains instead.

And no, I am not going to call them by that glamorous title given to them. I think you should stop calling them by that name too; it only gives them more fame. They are nothing but a bunch of brainless morons who have been used as pawns in a big game. And the perks in being used as pawns are what we are angry at.

Such is what we have to live with everyday. Given the trend, I wonder what they dare to do next with this unofficial immunity that they are getting. It really worries me. But hey, I am sure it does not worry you… I am sure you still find the
food is still good.

Agree!

I've personally seen how they hog the road and throw bottles whenever vehicles overtook them.

A friend asked me what will I do if i am surrounded by them. I can tell you I will just run them over and head for the nearest police station to lodge report.

Soulblade said...

Welcome to the CIRCUS. Personally, i am so pissed off with the 'herds' of them and guess what? My house is situated just next to a very-famous-for-it-is-always-jam highway. And every night before i go to bed, i will be 'sung a sweet sounded lullaby'. Great right?

penang-kia said...

These pests are national treasure so be very careful not to offend them.
As you say they have immunity and we don't.
For me they are just sampah on the road,ignore or avoid them.

The food is still o.k lah...but the taste is fading.
Guess its time to change the chef.

Zawi said...

Zewt,
It happens everywhere now as it is an 'in thing' to be called as a 'm.. .....t' even in small towns like mine. They will do a wheelie in front of the school in my place.
The police are now scared of them so dont expect the police to act when they are in a big group. They are even willing to run the police down.

Zawi said...

zewt,
How silly it is to reward such people with holidays to the poles unless thay are thinking into the future when sufficient numbers of them join the jumping expeditions, the authorities will provide dummy chutes for them to jump to the death and be buried into the snow at the poles.
Just like the Malaysian Government, the parents of these youths are often in a state of denial when they are informed that their children are involved. The mother will insist that her children are good and the father tend to beleive so too. This continue until they were called to collect the bodies of their children from the morgue. At that point most people will give them a cynical smile in return for their earlier perception that people were badmouthing their children.

We can't do anything simply because those who are supposed to do something opted for other more "urgent" task at hand. I wonder if snatch thiefs are no longer on the prowl since the media reports less of such cases.

Then again, people perception are not shaped by the media alone. They can see things falling apart as it is.

Meanwhile, the powers that be have other more "urgent" things to attend to.

me said...

what i don't understand is, why aren't any actions taken? why are the police protecting them? why why why? i doubt they have any coffee to offer them... the jail too packed to feed more inmates? they view it as harmless? why indeed?

Maverick SM said...

In Malaysia, we have created a cult analoguous to the Hippie culture.

Ironically, these menace had been embraced by UMNOputera and now renamed Mat Cermelang and given special treatment by the political party, except the police.

I had a brush with them on the road too. I just kept my cool head and mitigate.

Huei said...

hahhaah "go all out to get them"??

somehow i can't seem to imagine the picture...cos..they're all teh same breed..!

F.O.N @ frostee said...

These pea-sized brained idiotic morons are nothing but pest to society. And the jokers that 'employs' them are equally moronic neanderthals who should not share the same air that we breathe. Period.

Sunshine said...

sigh another talk and no action taken case la...

something happens then the mouth and the finger go wag wag wag...

then later... forget again...

j or ji said...

I wish i'm in a mafia or kongsi gelap...everytime urukhai lalu and make noise,i'll ask my kaki pukul to chase em and kill em...no..no..burn em with their machine.yes!

orang kata,kedai moto or spare parts ada jual nyawa atau body parts for urukhai..heh.thats why urukhai berani buat stunt.

uh..the best part is when urukhai accident and masuk hospital..all the nurses will treat em like shit!

Mcmercedez said...

These are a bunch of hooligans that are waiting to meet Hades... Sometime I really do wonder what's going on in their head..

But i trully hate these people and the danger they are causing to other people.. Them? Who cares about them? If they want to die.. then go die lah..

If I come across one of them that met an accident because of what they did, being a good samaritan, i'll pull over, get down of my vehicle, approach them, and..... LAUGH THE HELL OUT OF THEM!!!...

Sunflower said...

When we were on our way back from church camp over the Merdeka weekend stuck in traffic on the North-South highway, we passed a car surrounded by these people. Don't know what had happened, but they were all getting off their bikes. They broke off their bike numberplates, got rocks from the roadside, and smashed the car windows. We didn't see any more as the cars in our lane started moving forward. The driver and his passenger just sat there. I guess there was nothing they could do, and it wasn't like they could drive off since they were stuck in traffic.

Seems like they are full of rage and nothing better to do, I wonder how they earn a living.

rinnah said...

Why the sudden post on THEM, zewt? Had an encounter with 'em of late, is it? *grin*

There are quite a few in the flats some distance from my house... they are doing stunts and wheelies at a young age - maybe only 12 or 14 - in broad daylight facing oncoming traffic. *shakes head*

ardy said...

Just thinking about it can cause anyone to have high blood pressure!

What we need is street justice. Police? Hah, they are more insterested in issuing summons (and at the same time earning extra income).

These bastards terrorize the roads because they have numbers, they always move around in numbers, and they always call reinvorcements if the numbers are insufficient.

And of course it doesn't help with those idiots in Putera UMNO helping them in the wrong way. Last I heard, they were planning to send these rempits overseas to work! And here we are, importing foreign workers, and sending our people overseas to work.

Sometimes, it's amazing to see how stupid these politicians can be!!

Princess Eileen said...

I am glad I havent seen any of them. I drive alone most of the time, I guess I will be terrified if I see them.. some more mutated!

Manal said...

How about sing them the 10 budak hitam song...

10 budak rempit, pecut atas jalan,
1 sudah jatuh, tinggal lagi 9,
9 budak rempit, kacau org jalan,
1 kena belasah, tinggal lagi 8,
8 budak rempit, pecut sungguh2,
1 tayar meletop, tinggal lagi 7,
7 budak rempit, ronda malam2,
1 kena tangkap, tinggal lagi 6,
6 budak rempit, buat aksi gila,
1 langgar divider, tinggal lagi 5,
5 budak rempit, cilok cepat2,
1 masuk bawah trailer, tinggal lagi 4,
4 budak rempit, racing pagi buta,
1 masuk gaung, tinggal lagi 3,
3 budak rempit, suka himpit kereta,
1 kena langgar, tinggal lagi 2,
2 budak rempit, beli spare part baru,
1 sudah bankrupt, tinggal lagi 1,
1 budak rempit, sangat susah hati, tidak lalu makan, lalu terus mati.

Tunku Halim said...

That would make a great song! We can do a rap version and guess what . . . the food's still good, it has to be to make up for everything else? :)

narrowband said...

I must be thankful because I haven't encountered a bad experience with these people. I have heard alot of true stories though.

The 'glamorous title' is usually up for grabs if you're loaded.

Lucius Maximus said...

wah...the rempit onslaught again huh?

SLACKER said...

gotta understand one thing... when they say they'll go 'all out to get them'... it means a series of meetings and debates coming up with ideas.. in between kenduris with sirap limau served.. by the time they are done... its time for them to retire and pass on to the next generation of curry puff loving morons!

Calvin's Wife said...

Avoid going to their turf.... to save ur arse for the time being... ;)

Jun said...

gosh i had no idea they're becoming worse. wud u be able to enlighten me more? i'm so out of the action over here...

AngryYoungChild said...

Just today i was talking to my fren about mat rempits at starbucks! har har..i damn scared to drive car cause of them actually..

zewt said...

Helen - do you think you will really run them over? not many have done that. i have only heard of one story. and it's only a story.

soulblade - ahhh... i am sure it's one lullaby you would rather do without right?

penang-kia - change of chef... i like that!

zawi - cant blame them though... have to admit their access to entertainment is pretty much restricted due to poverty and our human nature to look for thrill will take over. it is indeed sad that many parents will continue to find their children in morque based on the current trend.

anon @ 8.17am - good point... seems like snatch theft has stop their activities lately... or have they? maybe not urgent enough to report.

me - the reasons are obvious, but we cant say it.

-=SiN=- said...

It pretty hard to understand the mentality of a rider unless you are a rider yourself ;
apparently 'almost', I say again 'almost' all riders will lose their head while having fun on the road.. jiwang kot?

The reality of "Bak Pao Ti(hokkien)" aka Flesh Over Steel seems to forgotten when one is in control of the throttle.

zewt said...

maverick SM - mitigate is a good choice. in a fight where we will sure lose... not worth it. but i wonder how long our tolerance can take us.

Huei - hands are tied by the power to be too.

FON @ frostee - but they not only share the same air... they are slowly claiming it!

sunshine - all a show to satisy our immediate hunger only.

j or ji - hahahaha.... wah, is that your dark desire. i am sure many of us here wants to do the same thing too. if only we are also provided immunity.

mcmercedez - dont forget to take a picture too. but you better get out of there fast...

zewt said...

sunflower - more than that... like i said... they are now close to invincible. we cant touch them.

rinnah - nope, just tat i have always wanted to talk about their mutation. to those 12 or 14... i wonder how long before they will rest...

ardy - sometimes i wonder... if we all suddenly form a group of cars and just chase down these bastards... would be a good plot for miniseries... the re**** hunters... haha...

princess eileen - hopefully you will not have such luck.

manal - *clap clap clap clap clap*... i am speechless... *clap some more*

tunku halim - indeed... the food is holding the fort.

zewt said...

narrowband - usually up for grabs if you're loaded? what you mean?

lucius maximus - why not? they dont disappear if we dong talk about them. worse, they will get more daring if we keep quiet.

slacker - can throw in an overseas trip too.

calvin's wife - but their turf is getting bigger.

Jun - one of the worse was this mother who was chased down and beaten till death. headlines... but now? forgotten. i dont even recall anyone being brought to justice.

AngryYoungChild - such is our lives here... pathetic huh?

-=Sin=- - you sound like a rider... are u? i must say... not all riders is a pest... only those who ride in hordes and be nuisance to the citizen.

angel said...

I just came to say... HELLO!
Dunno what to comment...

Just that the other day, I was driving, and this stewpig lady driver (unfortunately) in a Civic who just drove into my lane without giving any signal whatsover and I got the shock of my life. Summore drive so fast... luckily I managed to swerve in time to the outer lane, and luckily another car just sped by b4 that. Very CNNCNBC!

Michael Song said...

aiyo brother zewt... our mata-mata where got senang to pay a visit on mat rempit now? the mata-mata now got a few thousand blogs to read nowadays, to see which one they can lokap mar... mat rempit not threatening but oxford student does...

Anonymous said...

dis mat rempit thing will only disappear when that self-proclaimed head ( who recently became a father... & may god have mercy on his kid ) of these morons kick the bucket.

Anonymous said...

want to take on this bunch of morons...

it's simple...

1. pour black tar/oil ( make sure kau-kau one )on corners or sharp turns.

2. placed a few easy chair around.

3. grab couple of cold drinks

4. light a ciggy & relax

5. bet you, its fun to see these morons skiding down one after the other... just like a stack of dominos.

6. tied one by one to railings or trees.

7. once achieved target, tah pau &
then head to nearest mamak stall... hoi sami! teh halia satu! telur stengah masak dua...!

stocktube said...

pest? well, i don't think even the cockroaches want to include this new type of species into their category ...

anyway just be extra careful especially you're going for "clubbing" late into the night ...

even if you dare to run them over when surrounded, i doubt you want to go to police station ... you might be charged with attempt to murder ...

zewt said...

angel - how come angel for nothing to comment? impossible... eh, what is CNNCBBC?

michael song - yeah man... and with the number of blogs growing... they will have plenty in their plate!

anon @ 10.40pm - sigh...

anon @ 11.00pm - you're evil friend... hahahahaha....

stocktube - my clubbing days appear to to be over so it's cool. anyway, seldom meet up with them during those days... different playground i guess.

changeiam said...

Isn't it amazing that one day those little pest will be the one in power and in charge of the future of our country. God have mercy on us !!

BLuEaPpLE said...

If the act of trying to ward of a group of 50 over morons with a single car of certain "authority" blocking a main junction is called "going all out" (and I've seen it with my own eyes), I definitely would agree with Helen's suggestion. In a alarming situation like being surrounded and threatened, hit em and make a police report. Otherwise, keep cool, and let them pass. Better be safe than sorry?

zewt said...

changeiam - i dread that day... but then again... the food will still taste as good right?

blueapple - you've witness such 'go all out' action huh. isn it... pathetic? hit them and make a police report? you might be the one being charged.

Tsu Lin said...

I shudder!

zewt said...

tsu lin - i am sure many here too...

Calvin's Wife said...

then we change turf.. wukakakak..

zewt said...

calvin's wife - now, that is a good idea.
