Youth joined in Downtown East attack because he didn't want to 'lose face' #gangs

FILE PHOTO: Shin Min Daily News When his gang members asked him to go for a settlement talk, Darren Ng Wei Jie, 19, decided to bring along a retractable baton. And it was when he brandished the baton that the violence started between two groups of youth at Downtown East in Pasir Ris on the evening of Oct 30, 2010. Darren, a Republic Polytechnic student, suffered 28 injuries on his head, neck, chest and limbs. He died in hospital about five hours later. Yesterday, Jason Chew Wei Beng, 21, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of rioting in relation to Darren’s death. While Jason was not a gang member, he was friends with members of the rival gang which attacked Darren and had joined in because he did not want to "lose face". Read the full story in The New Paper on Thursday (Feb 23).
