If you have yet to see the viral video which features a raging Chinese lady threatening a MPSJ officer with a steering lock, then allow us to fill you in on what happened.
First uploaded by Facebook page PublicNews, the 1-minute 30-second odd clip shows said Chinese lady shouting at the officer after he clamped her car for parking illegally in front of a restaurant. According to what little we can make out from the argument, the lady had parked at the spot meant for disabled drivers/people as there weren’t any parking spaces available.
In the video, she can be heard screaming at the top of her lungs, “Saya beli makanan untuk OKU (disabled person), salah tak? Salah tak?! You beritahu saya, salah tak?” (Translation: I’m buying a meal for a disabled person, is that wrong? Is that wrong?! You tell me, is that wrong?) To which the officer calmly replied, despite having a steering lock waved in his face, “Tak salah, you beli makan OKU tak salah. You parking kereta salah.” (Translation: It’s not wrong to buy a meal for a disabled person. But you parked at the wrong spot.)
She continued arguing that she’s helping a disabled person, in an attempt to justify her actions. “Are you disabled?” the officer asked, which enraged the lady even more, and her angry tirade continued. It is not known how the fiasco concluded as the video ended abruptly. But it has since garnered over 13k shares and 819k views, all in under 24 hours.
Netizens swarmed the comments section and condemned the woman’s behaviour.
“OKU parking is only for OKU people. If you are buying something for OKU person, it doesn’t mean you can park at OKU spot. And to be screaming at someone who is clearly doing his job is not going to change wrong to right. So embarrassed for you lady,” wrote one Facebook user. “Lady, if you saw the poor and you wanna help them, then you go rob the bank and give the money to them, you salah kah tidak? Helping people is not an excuse for running against the law, paham?” said another.
For the most part, the people praised the officer for his conduct and patience. “I like how the officer kept his integrity and even put his hands behind his back, not at all even showing threatening physical signs to the lady. He did his job very well, despite the lady shoving a metal stick practically up his nose,” one netizen commented.
Meanwhile, Serdang district police chief assistant Commissioner Megat Mohd Aminuddin Megat Alias confirmed that the MPSJ officer lodged a police report at about 7pm. The case will be investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation, a section carries a maximum 2 years’ jail or fine or both, if convicted.
