So, calm down.
The Inspector General of Police said so.
Read The Star here;
The Star, however, described the whole thing as (excerpts),
On Saturday, a fight erupted between a group of thugs and sales clerks after a group of youth returned to take revenge against the retailers who allegedly caught them shoplifting earlier on Saturday.
The thugs must be the gang of Malays causing all the trouble while the peaceful hardworking sales clerks should be those who happened to be Chinese.
Okay, since this is not about race, let's take out the Malay and Chinese parts.
The part about "caught them shoplifting" must then meant about the sales clerks catching the thugs stealing.
Simple, bad thugs, good sales clerks.
It doesn't matter that the bad thugs happened to be Malays and the good sales clerks happened to be Chinese.
However the story that went around among the Malay crowd was that one of the Malay thugs bought a phone from one of the Chinese sales clerks only later on to discover that it's not an original item.
The thug then tried to get an original item replacement but the sales clerk refused to entertain him. The thug then just took one of the original items and ran off only to be caught and handed over to the police.
The thug then showed the receipt of his purchase of the phone to the policemen prompting him to be released. Still unhappy, he and the other thugs then went back to Low Yat Plaza and the whole mess started.
Again, as the IGP said, this is not a racial thing, so let's disregard that the thugs, as described by the MCA-own The Star are Malays and the sales clerks are Chinese.
But of course, the Malays will still be huffing and puffing as usual when these sorts of things happened.
It's something like when the Chinese tsunami of the last general election happened.
The Malays got very angry and threatened to boycott the Chinese businesses.
I however observed that the Chinese mostly laugh off such a Malay threat.
This is my observation of what happened in the aftermath of the Chinese tsunami of GE13,
Chinese businesses don't need Malays
Melayu ni hangat-hangat tahi ayam je.
That's the way of the Malays and even the Chinese know it.
Back then I asked my mother (who happened to be a Chinese) whether the Chinese businesses can survive if no Malays buy stuff from them.
My mother said no problem, the Chinese will survive. It's the Malays who can't survive without buying at the Chinese business premises.
True enough, all those talks back then about boycotting the Chinese businesses died a natural death.
I guess, that's the way it will always be.
Come to think of it, it's always the Malays who needed the Chinese and not the other way around.
For instance, I know that my father (who happened to be a Malay) can't live without my mother, but my mother, I'm sure, will survive even without my father.
Malays, you are weak. Accept it okay. It's not about being racial but about the way you are.
As for those Malay thugs, why la you all still go buy handphones at Low Yat Plaza?
Itu tempat banyak dodgy liao.
Itu Cina punya sales clerks semua kaki chong punya tau.
Lu tengok dia punya gaya Ah Beng Ah Seng pun lu mesti sudah tau dia tipu punya.
Lain kali simpan duit sampai cukup.
Pakai dulu Nokia lama tu sampai cukup duit.
Lepas tu beli Iphone or Samsung je kat original dealers or kat telco punya kedai.
Lu orang tak suka Cina apa pasal mau pakai itu Oppo made in China punya phone? Lu orang pakai Korea ke Amerika punya phone la.
Kalau boleh cari kedai Melayu.
Tapi tu pun kena careful sebab these days Melayu pun suka tipu Melayu.
Kadang-kadang Melayu tipu Melayu lagi teruk dari Cina tipu Melayu.
Betul, wa tada tipu lu punya.
Okay, for your entertainment, here is a bit of Ah Being Ah Seng music;
