Anil I have to agree with you and some others that PDRM’s plate is rather full and better of chasing real criminals than go after teenage cyclists. But I think this matter also raises some uncomfortable issues. 1. What’s the point of having an MP in the Parliament when you had to resort to such dangerous and unncessary stunts ? 2. Why can’t apply for a police permit and make things easier for everyone ? 3. Why are they involving underage students ? Do the students really understand the objectives and implication of the campaign ? 4. Isn’t this an… Read more »

Malaysia is looking like Zimbabwe everyday. Just what is the role of the police? Harassing cyclist? Hey dummies, it is a very healthy exercise. Why do you do what you are paid to do? Like policing the city of crime. KL is crime ridden now….

BN will never learn. After making big mistake with HINDRAF, they are now trying to fool around with JERIT. It is a good opportunity provided by the police to transform opposition supporters to be hard core followers.

Perhaps the cyclists are ‘guilty’ of turning the country’s latest ‘wheels of justice’
Seen by certain people to be not of good, strong, healthy and valid social practice
Thus they are being constantly harassed and troubled by being served with harsh notice
Treating all of them (road heros) poorly, badly and openly almost like mere tortoise

Call up the parents and take their own time with it la !

What idiotic statements is that? If parents tak bagi ikut, u think they would not have made a missing person’s report by now? So how many reports have you got? None? Wah I thought they don’t understand the law, but now maths also fail ah?

Standards have really fallen in our PDRM. Itu pun kalau betul standard dah turun (the other conclusion – jadi … UMNO, which is much worse).

I have asked this before, apa dah jadi dengan Piagam Polis?

How pathetic this country’s police force has become. Mat rempits are everywhere, challenging the police,do they get any approval from their parents and the Botak Minister? Someone at the top even called this bunch of road menace as “young turks looking for fun”. How naive. (Or maybe they are the sons of the divisional chairman/committees or some top public servants?) Snatch thieves and robbers are everywhere,yet how many are caught? How many are released after they are caught and they are roaming free in the neighbourhood? People are living in fear, and these people take their own sweet time to… Read more »

Serious ke? Naik basikal pun kena ada parents’ consent? Now I have reasons to tell my kids not to ride bicycle – polis tangkap.

Earlier, Jerit reported that the police wanted details of the cyclists to check with their parents whether they really gave their consent.
so now our police is so free that they want to help parents take care of their children as well. Even if their parents didn’t give consent how? Arrest them for not having consent from their parents? utterly bulls***!
