Cat City - Malaysia’s newest “Gangsterwood”

I was really depressed and also shocked to learn that Kuching City is about to turn into the first “gangsterhood” city of Malaysia. One particular news on the papers today (The Borneo Post) really caught my eyes with the headline “Two friends attacked twice on the same night by same mob”

It was mentioned that the incident happened at RPR batu Kawa around 10pm when a 23-year-old man and his friend was forced to pull over to the side of the road by a group of about 10 men, believed to be intoxicated, before they were attacked brutally with dangerous weapons which resulted the 23-year-old sustaining a deep gash wound at the top of his head and his friend was injured near the mouth after his left check was pierced by a metal skewer. Even the arrival of the police did not seem to stop the mob as they continued to smash the victim’s car and ripped out the vehicle’s sound system and speakers before finally escaping into the dark alleys nearby.

Now you tell me. Are we leaving in Malaysia or the Bronx, where the society can easily get hold of weapons and guns? Where we often heard countless of vicious cases of assaults occurred every single day. Where do these thugs, mob come from? Are they our local Kuchingians or outsiders? We can only pray for our safety and such news would definitely be a nightmare that wakes us up from our deep sleep for all this time...Signing Out. TheWonderWoman
