Mum slaps son in front of police
A WOMAN was so angry that she slapped her son at the Tun H.S. Lee police station here yesterday after he was detained for riding his motorcycle recklessly.
The 23-year-old youth, a mechanic from Ampang who was among eight Mat Rempit picked up by a city traffic police special enforcement unit (U3K) in an anti-road bully operation, had called his mother at 1.30am to bail him out.
The single mother in her early 50s, who sells coconut milk for a living, arrived at the police station about half an hour later with the youth's elder brother.
"You just wait for your punishment," she told her son before giving him a slap and a long lecture.
City traffic U3K chief Assistant Superintendent Azmi Wahid said the mechanic, who worked as his mother's helper as well, was nabbed in Jalan Loke Yew doing stunts on his motorcycle.
In this Ops Samseng, police detained eight youths aged between 17 and 23, who were found to be involved in illegal racing and for performing dangerous riding stunts on the road.
The five-hour operation, which started at midnight, was conducted in Jalan Loke Yew and in the city centre.
Police also seized 17 motorcycles, including eight from the detained youths, and the rest for other offences.
Azmi said: "It is very important for parents to know the whereabouts of their children, especially at night.
"Although their children might be working adults, the youths are still their responsibility.
"In cases like this, usually the parents are the ones who need to come and bail their sons out. And the punishment for such offences are also stiff -- a minimum RM5,000 fine or jail not exceeding five years." - NST
