Bullies Bagged by Bali Cops


Denpasar police arrested six teenagers last week, for allegedly attacking and harassing their fellow students. All six were residents of a housing complex for the families of military personnel.

The six youths are understood to be between 16 and 17 years old, and have been identified as IGME, BAP, AF, GVA, YD and DMA. They were arrested on 1 May on Jl Panjaitan in the upmarket Renon district of Denpasar after allegedly attacking, beating and robbing two other teens, Ahmad Arlan, 17, and M Ahyar, on the street.

East Denpasar Police spokesman Ketut Suryanta said that the gang had taken the pair’s motorbike helmets and sold them for cash at a local pawn shop.

They had beaten them when they tried to resist the theft.

Denpasar Police chief I Wayan Sunartha said that all six youths had been temporarily detained at the city’s police headquarters.

“They have not been placed in the cells, as they are still underage,” Sunartha said.

Bali’s police have previously come under fire for heavy-handed treatment of underage suspects.

Sunartha said that the teenagers’ parents had all been informed of their alleged crimes. He said that all the youths were the children of serving Army personnel.

  1. federal student loan forgiveness Says:

    Eligibility is a huge worry for some. The Student Loan Forgiveness Act’s settlement and forgiveness arrangement only applies to federal student loans. The Student Loan Ranger frequently distinguishes between federal and private loans and presents information on relief for federal loans that is already available.

    • Student loans can be puzzling, with many different types and and servicers. Consolidation exemplifies this confusion. There are many solutions, but only one retains federal protections like income-driven repayment plans, deferments and forbearances, and forgiveness.
    If you are consolidating federal student loans, consolidate into a Federal Consolidation Loan. These would be eligible for the Student Loan Forgiveness Act’s 10/10 arrangement and improvements to Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and the interest rate cap would submit an application to new loans after the act is voted for. They also are eligible for the existing protections mentioned above.

    Keep in mind, however, that consolidating loans may reset any progress you’ve made with regard to relief like Public Service Loan Forgiveness. If you consolidate federal loans through a private service, they are not eligible for relief under the Student Loan Forgiveness Act, or for any at present available relief.
    A common point of bewilderment: Just because you make payments to lenders like Sallie Mae doesn’t mean you don’t have a federal loan. Log into the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) to see if you currently have a federal loan; it’s worth knowing if you can access some relief!
