A scooter gang viciously attacked and injured 12 teenagers — three critically — while on a violent joyride in Taipei County’s Tucheng City…
The gang of more than 20 scooter-riding thugs, who brandished large knives and baseball bats, went after most of their hapless victims as they were barbecuing for the Mid-Autumn Festival. Four teens have been taken into custody in connection with the attacks.
Apparently my understanding of scooters is very different from theirs. It’s sad, but the contradiction between a ridiculous looking scooter and an act of violent boggles me to smirking. They’d probably kick my ass.
(aside: why are the gangs known for their scooters and not for their violence? Are all Asian scooter gangs violent?)
