Gangster thugs take on the role of educators

Gangster thugs take on the role of educators

A little unsolicited driving advice proved a very bad idea for two men in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district on Sunday.

Police said that a group of seven “gangsters” had flown by on their motos, prompting the men to shout “If you don’t want to die, don’t drive so fast!” Bad move.

The seven promptly circled back to the duo and proceeded to beat them. Cops showed up before anyone was killed and arrested the entire gang.

Asked why they’d done it, one said it had been to “educate” the victims, who were sent to hospital. Deum Ampil
