Snatch Thieves' Deaths
Sunday, November 21, 2004
He rammed his motorcycle into a car and fell. Then, he was run over by another car. Sounds bad? He was a snatch thief - in his haste to escape. If he had escaped safely, it would be almost impossible to catch him. Snatch thieves change their motorcycles' registration numbers. Even if they don't, their bikes may not be theirs - they could be stolen bikes. Should snatch thieves be made to pay with their lives?

In July, a snatch thief was killed in a hit-and-run incident while trying to escape. This is interesting. Should the driver be even held liable for his death? You can imagine how it's like when snatch thief tries to escape after snatch - speeding and weaving in-and-out of traffic. I wonder if the poor driver will ever be identified. He/she must have freaked the hell out because of that. If it was me, it would help to know that the victim was a snatch thief.

In 2002, a snatch thief died after crashing into a lamp post, moments after snatching a woman's handbag. (Sourced from Malay Mail Online). Notice the year - 2002! You can tell how often snatch thieves die while trying to escape - Out of a zillion snatch thefts in 2 years, only three! On the other hand, innocent victims are killed because of these thieves. So the question again: Should snatch thieves be made to pay with their lives?

If you ask me, I'd say, "Yes, they should".
