    For me, age have caught up and changed my enthusiasm to zero at the thought of driving especially into Kuala Lumpur. It have changed drastically for quite sometime. I loath driving to KL unless I know its won't be any pain to me and on a really need to purpose. I look forward so much to the upcoming LRT which can transport me there with ease and convenience. Other than that, a scooter is so desired to scoot around nearby, nothing more.

    I have known (name removed by admin) for a long time and have had many drinks with him all over the places in Singapore, in KL and in Penang.. he is cool-headed and cannot be easily provoked. He is loud but then all advertising people are loud and some say boisterous but this man has a good heart. He has worked with us on the handicapped kids project in Taman Mayang, in USJ1 and many other charitable and community projects in Subang area and even was involved in feeding the elephants in Temerloh.

    We share a love for off-road bikes as well as on-road superbikes especially dual-purpose superbikes... I was recently following his activities on Facebook on his riding expedition on the steppes and grassland in Mongolia . What I read later on this "road rage' was a shocker to both my wife and I...

    While I think what he did was totally wrong and unacceptable - we must also understand the circumstances that led him to snap and lose it... why the fuse just tripped? Let us not prejudge him and sentence him before we really know what really happened on that fateful morning. It is really sad seeing all the holier-than-thou people baying for blood and asking for 2 years jail sentence etc... are these people serious? Have they got the moral conscience to stand up and say they have never lost their temper? never lost their cool? never cursed at another driver? never honked? never changed lane unless they put on the indicator?

    My wife asked me while we were having breakfast 2 days ago (we are out of town) when we heard news that Keith had been arrested on remand... "what would you have done if you were in his shoes?" My answer was "I really don't know..." and I think that was as honest as I could be...

    I sat there and imagined - if a lady driver tailed me after I have made a silly error, and then on passing me slowed down to show me her centre finger... I really do not know what I would do... I would ignore her or if my fuse tripped, I would break her middle finger... I really do not know the answer...

    I have communicated with (name removed by admin)... I do not know what happened for him to snap like this - but as a friend, as a fellow forumer - I will give him my moral support and help him get through this.

    I appeal to you too to do the same... thank you...

    Knowing him, it is likely that there could be something more than what we have heard that triggered his response towards the lady.
    Unless the video and images are faked, his actions toward the lady as seen is unfortunately wrong.
    Despite the others [in FB and elsewhere] calls for heavy penalties, if ever convicted, note the following precedence re Kiki.

    Note re the OP;
    The judge imposed a RM5,000 fine besides ordering her to perform 240 hours of community work.
    Whatever the outcome, I will give him my moral support.

    Nice guy or not, you cannot do things out of the law. It is like Oscar Pitorious s case. Who would have thought that he would do such a thing. Years of holding on to a good character and it takes a minute to snap.

    It does not matter how kind or selfless a person is, the person should take responsibilities for all his actions. In this case, it is extremely clear based on public info that he is in the wrong and should be punished accordingly. I have no sympathies for road bullies, regardless of consequences. He should be grateful that he was not beaten on the spot for his antics.

    Note this case that happened on Nov 17 2014.
    http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Natio...-cabbie-Fined/

    KUALA LUMPUR: A taxi driver who allegedly slapped and pinched a 26-year-old insurance company employee was fined RM1,000 by a Magistrate's Court here for causing hurt to her.

    Magistrate Nuraminatul Mardiah Mohd Noor also instructed Chong Kim Fah, 48, to be jailed two months if he failed to pay the fine.

    Chong was charged with causing hurt to Tan by hitting her using his hand at Jalan Angkosa off Jalan Nagasari here at about 7.40am on Nov 17.

    I heard from a police inspector before if you use physical force to hurt somebody, you're going to get a criminal record and a fine if found guilty.

    RM 10K Bail for each charge? that's a lot of money.

    That taxi driver got off with RM1K fine - he physically attacked her. It was not intimidation so why in this case was our man arrested, in jail for 2 days and bailed @ RM20K?

    I believe the internet have been very unkind to (name removed by admin), "tormented, persecuted and crucified" in all the sensation that followed and just by judging from a bunch of pictures that went viral. They ALL are not there as witnesses nor know 3 sides of the story. Its now quite evident that pictures of some incident that go viral can have extremely damaging effects. Look at all the comments that follow any controversial picture.. Mostly MOB type comments, even death threats, just because its so easy to type them on the keyboard. This isn't healthy!

    I think, at this point of time, the less said the better. It won't help (name removed by admin) but may jeopardize his case. Why? Because most of us know him, we speak for him. There are many, many more who don't. They will retaliate with their comments and retaliations will go viral and generate greater "public interest." And the court will have to consider public interest in sentencing.

    I agree completely. I also applaud his friends here for sticking by him but this person must accept the consequences of his actions.

    Right, most people are aware of this kind of saying and thats why laws are in effect, but always different in practice, the world goes on like this time and again throughout history.
    WE ARE ALL HUMAN, prone to err! Now more than ever, at the wrong time and place, if we quote old adages or sayings, we can be easily accused of "holier than thou".. even worse!

    With all respect, i don't think the "negative" commentators are being holy or anything. Certain behaviors should never be tolerated. Malaysia came to current state because we Malaysians are very forgiving, especially when it comes to people we know.
    We should be fair to everyone and based our judgment on facts known. Just because the culprit is someone we know, it does not make it any more ok than a foreigner (ie someone we do not know).

    Nonetheless, in this case, let the law takes it course and (name removed by admin) should humbly accept any punishments given by the court and repent.

    Yes, you have your point but I'm afraid its not the same in reality.
    There exist all kinds mob mindset around just simply type just about anything their silly or narrow mind tells them to, don't give two hoots what others may think in the rational sense. They can type things like "Go hang him","shoot him", "bastard, ass, f****, etc etc etc, wide plethora of similar offensive abuses which are unkind and unforgiving. Its NOT right for rational minded people. THESE people the MOB kind and very evident where I've observed. If you happen to be "victimized" in that circumstances, you better be very thick skinned and insensitive to those comments. Its now a common phenomenon. Again, its SO EASY just to type a few offensive words to hurt anyone, just like its takes nothing to press your foot down on the car accelerator pedal to be a speed demon and risk everyone else in the car.
