One: I am VERY ANGRY about this evil going on all over Johor. When I read this news report this morning, the first thing that came into my heart was: “I want them to die. Dear Lord, I want them dead.”
Now I repent of my merciless thoughts toward the criminals. But I still wish them caught, tried and punished.
Two: I felt that the woman was very stupid to let the robber in like that (apologies to the woman and those who know her, but I am being honest). She could have jammed the horn, screamed and held the dor shut - ANYTHING BUT SURRENDER TO THE CRIMINAL! The attempt to prevent her son from getting hurt was admirable, but foolishly executed – the rober could have just killed her and the son anyway!
So girls (and guys), do not succumb to fear and panic and lose your head when confronted with danger. FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE.
And three: As Kean pointed out to me: The husband was irresponsible and foolish to leave his wife and son in a running car, at 4am in the dark, at an isolated petrol station in THE MOST DANGEROUS CITY IN MALAYSIA!
Guys, NEVER EVER let your girl and your family out of your sight for even a moment! The heartless animals will attack in the blink of an eye.
Here’s to this being the last post in Johor Crimes for a long, long time. But it is sadly, very unlikely.
From The Star 4 May 2007:
Gang-raped in terror carjack
JOHOR BARU: A woman who was waiting in the car while her husband went to a toilet was held up at knife-point and taken on a terror ride, gang-raped and robbed.
The 28-year-old woman who works in Singapore, was driven around Plentong for three hours after being abducted from the petrol station in Tampoi. Her three-year-old son was in the car with her.
The drama unfolded when the victim and her son had accompanied her husband to town on his way to work in Singapore at 4am several days ago.
The husband stopped the car, with his wife and son inside, at the petrol station and kept the engine running.
Soon after, the woman was shocked to see a man armed with a knife, knocking at her window demanding that she open the door.
The woman, fearing for her son’s safety, complied and the suspect then drove the car to pick up his friend from a nearby area.
They blindfolded the woman and threatened to harm her son if she struggled.
The woman begged the men to let them go as she was pregnant but they instead took her to a secluded area and took turns to rape her.
They then picked up another man before dropping both mother and son in Permas Jaya and driving off with the car and her belongings.
Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Shafie Ismail said that the car had been recovered two days after the incident in Majidee. He appealed to those with information to contact the police hotline at 07-221 2999 or the nearest police station.
