Photo from: gerbanginformasi.wordpress.com/.../Home Minister, Syed Hamid says that Anwar Ibrahim is not above the law and cannot be treated as special and be exempted from it. Yes, of course he is not. Every Malaysian knows that there are only two groups of Malaysians who ARE above the law.
The first group are of course the YB's of the ruling coalition. (Notice that I didn't say which coalition. Just that they should be the ruling one.) They are definitely exempted from that rule. Anyway, whenever there is a law they need to rise above they simply change it.
The second group is more interesting. They are definitely above the law and exempted from it. Who are they? Well, technically they can be any Malaysian or illegal immigrant who owns or is possession of a motorcycle of less than 200cc engine capacity and a modified LOUD exhaust pipe. What? Don't believe ah? Take a look around. Those flers on those little motor bikes ARE above the law.
They run traffic lights at will. They weave in and out of traffic scratching cars and breaking off side mirrors at will and with impunity. They take illegal U-turns right under the noses of traffic policemen. They perform bike stunts on major highways without an entertainment permit or police permit. Yes Mat Rempit is definitely above the law. Well, unless they are doing something completely legal like going the proper speed limit or riding in the motorcycle lane and minding their own business. Then you can see them being hauled up at police road blocks, JPJ barriers or Immigration operasi's. Actually, that proves something about living in Malaysia doesn't it?
You want to get away with things do them BIG. Like build a mansion. Use C4 to blow somebody up. Not any explosives mind you. Must be C4 or your ass gets hauled to jail. CBT? Got to be in the billions. Otherwise you are not above the law man!
Anyway, now that you know. Next time you pass or most likely is passed by a Mat Rempit remember to tabik (salute) ya? Thank you.
