How To Overcome This Problem?

Tackle "mat rempit" problem: IGP

 KUALA TERENGGANU: Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar has issued an order for the police to give serious attention to tackling the problem of "mat rempit" (illegal motorcycle racers).
"I have directed all police contingents to give serious attention to tackling the matter. Now, policemen are confronted with violence by a group of people who do not respect the law," he told reporters at an Aidilfitri celebration at the Terengganu police headquarters, here today.

He said the aggressiveness of some of these "mat rempit" was a cause for concern.

They did not only disobey regulations but were seen to be getting bolder in violating the law, he added.
Earlier, Ismail visited two injured policemen at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital here. He was accompanied by Terengganu police chief Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan.

Constable Arizan Mohamad, 24, of Sarawak suffered fracture of his left collarbone and his left leg and a head wound which required 10 stitches after a motorcyclist and his pillion rider crashed into him on Sept 15 as they tried to evade the roadblock at Jalan Masjid Zainal Abidin here.

PM: Sending biker gang members to jail not the answer

PUTRAJAYA: Mat Rempit or biker gang members who have become a menace to society will get a chance to reform under the Government’s Permata Negara programme, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

The Prime Minister said the programme, to be launched in January next year, was aimed at rehabilitating Mat Rempit youths between the ages of 18 and 25 to become useful members of society.

He said by sending these youths to jail for minor offences (illegal racing or reckless stunts on public roads) could make matters worse if they mingled with hardcore criminals in prison.

“The aim is not to penalise the offenders but to find ways to rehabilitate them so they can become useful, successful and confident members of the public.
“That is why the programme will focus on intervention, in which the Mat Rempit will join a rehabilitation camp from two weeks to six months. There they can improve their capacity by learning leadership skills, social interaction, self-empowerment and such,” Najib told reporters after chairing a Permata Negara meeting here yesterday. Present was his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, who is the Permata Negara Policy Working Committee chairman.

Najib said the Cabinet had already approved a new law to allow the courts to use the Community Service Order to send those found guilty of committing Mat Rempit-related offences for the programme.
He said the pilot programme would start with 50 offenders placed at a camp in Pantai Dalam, Kuala Lumpur.

“We will look at the success rate of the programme before expanding it,” he said, adding that the programme would not include youths caught for drug-related offences or juveniles for now.
Najib said the Permata Negara meeting also agreed to launch a Permata Seni project to make 33 children become renowned like the Vienna Boys’ Choir.
The meeting also discussed the introduction of the Permata Insan programme to encourage religious school pupils between the ages of nine and 12 years to have a deep understanding of the religion, besides becoming professionals like technocrats and scientists, he said.

Najib added that 212,143 students nationwide had taken the tests for first-stage screening for Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Permata Pintar programme. The 4,682 shortlisted students would undergo the second stage of tests before the final 450 are selected for the First-Term School Holiday Camp in early 2011.

Expressing concern, Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said the problem should be nipped in the bud.
The problem would affect the state’s efforts to woo tourists, especially for Visit Malaysia Year 2007, he said.
“Surely the tourists will want to think twice about coming to Penang if we have cases of Mat Rempit going around on a robbing spree,'' he told reporters after launching D-pomelo Sdn Bhd's inaugural e-loyalty system website known as Meal Avenue.
He was commenting on the early Sunday morning incident where groups of Mat Rempit had gone on a robbing spree in Seberang Prai.
Two groups of Mat Rempit robbed a family of four and another man of a total of RM750 in separate incidents between 4am and 5am.
The family was robbed of RM500 while the motorist was robbed of RM250.
Dr Koh said the police and relevant authorities would have to take swift and stern action to stop such incidents.
Such incidents caused bodily harm to people and damage to properties, and also tarnished the image of the state and country, he said.
“The public can cooperate by using the Rakan COP hotline or send a SMS on such activities to help the police to act fast,” he said.

Sometimes a team leader was not aware that he was appointed to head the group. Position as a leader of the group often changes from time to time and potentially lead to a group of Mat Rempit split and formed a new group or join another group.The probability that they reunite after the split depends the issues that stimulate the consolidation of a group of like when there is a fights or drug use.

Mat Rempit group members have interests that seem to be the same eg play the guitar and drum music, playing sports such as snooker and billiards, fishing fish and relax in the 'mamak stalls. Mat Rempit do all activities together but often moves in small amounts in the range of two to nine people.

Moving in large numbers may limit the activity to done and is likely to cause problems. This shows that the spirit of belonging and camaraderie is very high in a small number of members, and in a Mat Rempit is a large group there are also several other sub-groups.

Although the Mat Rempit have norms and values or their own Specifically, they will not reject the norms and values such as public participation collaborative activities in the community. If they are invited to attend a weddings in need of assistance and aid them in making event, their mass would engage to help either.

If the norms and values in society to interfere with or restrict the practice norms held their value, the Mat Rempit will respond as damage to public or private property and injure people. Among the examples practices that violate the norms and values are loitering in the activity night while playing guitar and singing crowds, and test capabilities their bikes to harass the local population noise generated. At this point, the police will play a role in
