On hindsight, I believe even the officer may realise the error. But during the actual event, the intention was to catch runaways - and we know this may include some whose number plates are false.

May need to consider the task assigned to the officers. Will they, by letting go those who "cabut", be castigated for not doing their job? Or are they expected to try to catch them?

i'm a peace lovin kinda fella n i detest violence. but sometimes in split second situations like this when a law enforcer has to make a decision on action agst an obvious transgression against d law, i'd think that its 2 bad we need a scapegoat 2 tell some segments of our society that if they act tough or mess with d law then someday there will b somebody from d other side of d fence somewhere 2 mirror their attitude/behavior and by then it will b much 2 late. if i were 2 read btwn d lines, might i suggest that d victim's mum stood by her son's violations? heck, she was a damn accessory 2 d violations, having had known full well that d victim was not qualified 2 ride a motorbike. condemn her 2 greater misery n tell d rest of d nation that jpj/pols/ag r heartless guardians of d law - a few lives might b saved thereafter.

Would it be any different if the chair thrown towards the X person on the motorcyle is a; Convicted fellon, or a Snatch theif? Probably we'd be discussing on how courages the officer is by now. Another thing we should consider is, at that point in time did the officer know he was just a 16 yr old kid. Alot of facts and factors need to be taken into account to determine this.

I believe at that split second, or in the spur of the moment the JPJ officer had carried out his duty with zeal. We can't have everyone trying to avoid the law, what about if its a car charging towards the JPJ road block?
