His finger for his car

PETALING JAYA, Mar 30:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is a team of carjackers on the prowl in Subang Jaya and what they did to accountant K. Kumaran on Monday shows how ruthless they can be.
They chopped off part of his left index finger when they realised that his S-Class Mercedes Benz had a security feature which would immobilise the car without his fingerprint.

They also stripped him of all his valuables and left him naked along the Federal Highway.

Ain't this scary? It makes us wonder if installing an immobiliser on our car is really necessary after all.

next time, if I need to choose between a finger print/retina scan security system and a card-based/PIN based, I know which one I'll go for..

OUCH ........ & somemore smack in the middle of Subang ..............
What is the world coming to ?
Reminds me of the gory story of fraudulent EPF withdrawals using the chopped off thumbs of deceased members ( no pun intended ).

I'm not sure if it'll work if they dig out your eye balls... will it?

Did you watch Tom Cruise in Minority Report? He replaced his eye balls but retained the old eye ball (in a plastic bag) to get access into his old workplace.

Now i wonder if the Subang Jaya carjackers kept Mr.Kumaran's finger in a plastic bag also .. :eek:

It facinates me how a young accountant can afford a RM300K car.

Beats me too. 29-year old owning a second-hand S-class merc....probably he struck the 4-digits? :D

actually it fascinates me too how he earn his $$$ :D

but I think more importantly now, it fascinates me how these carjackers can do anything they like, carjacking, cutting of his finger and leaving him naked beside the federal highway. It fascinates me how these people can get away with it and run off with the car. And it fascinates me how the naked man had to walk a few hundred meters along federal highway without any enforcement seeing him..

and not forgetting, it fascinates me how unsafe our environment is. I am getting panicky now. Where is the police when we needed them most?

What better way to learn from a young man on how he made his money, right.
Afterall, he got his fingers cut and car is jacked. What else can we do?
It'll only ease his pain if we digress and ask him on his secret of success than to wallow in pity for him and reminding him of his terror experience, right?

I gotta say the carjackers had a lot of bravado, decisive and had the job well executed. Not that I condone the act, but its in fact a crime well carried out.

I loath to say their published modus operandi would make good case study for carjacker-wannabes. Better brace for more such attacks in the near future...and watch your fingers, whomever that applies to.

I agree with this statement and it makes me even more panicked. Do you guys notice how crimes seemed to come in 'trends' especially in Malaysia? There was one period of time when there were a lot of rape cases, then it were snatch thefts and then there were road rage and finally here we have carjackers who cut off people's fingers..i wonder what's next?

And I thanked God for granting me only an Iswara with a RM10.00 steering lock which I bought from Kedai Sepuluh Ringgit. :o

I think all the crimes you mentioned happened all the time. It depends on the newspapers' flavour of the day when it comes to reporting them.

Why are the robbers so daring?

I think the robbers are confident that the policing in SJ/USJ
is so scant that they dare to execute their plans.
These 'mice' know that the 'cat' is not always around.
It is unfortunate that the police themselves are saying that
they do not have resources and money to provide sufficient
security.

Therefore we need to beef up policing in USJ and SJ, which
means no foodcourt!

It never occured to me to look at it from this point of view! thanks, you responded just at the right Nic_of_Time :)

I think it is appropriate to bring up this issue to our beloved Dato' LHB now and show that our concerns are justified with these kind of life-threatening events happening in Subang.

According to Hollywood, and Dan Brown's "Angels & Demons", it would. :)
