Watz Buzzing - 28 Oct 2013

Saliva Spitting case at woodlands interchange 22 Oct 2013 2140hrs


The lady in blue (0:40) was queuing up waiting for 950 to go back home. This Singaporean man (he claims to be Singaporean) suddenly cuts her queue, she asked him to queue up behind. He claims that he was in the queue just now. But he went off to buy a drink at the shop nearby and came back. He claims that he is in the queue, nobody saw him.

Bus came. All in the queue went up the bus, this guy spitted on the blue lady multiple times before he went up too, everyone complaints. He pushed the blue lady down the bus and spitted saliva on her face multiple times.. (estimated +- 10x) , she went to call the control room personnels (1:41 & 2:04) to scene. This guys hogs the bus refusing to alight, blaming the driver for not moving becos he is waiting for him to alight or police to come. (Meanwhile control room sends for a second bus, now 2-3 SMRT staff + driver at scene but did nothing). He still insist its the drivers fault.

Alot of ppl screamed and scolded him for being inconsiderate (old man in bus almost got punched for scolding him, many others shouted at him for delaying bus departure). He fought back verbally with the whole bus of passengers, pushed his way into 25% from the front of the bus then squeezed his way roughly out again. (Second bus came, back door opens, ppl alights, he rushed to the back door stopping ppl from coming down but failed becos alot of guys pushed him aside. This green lady was unlucky, got stopped by him. He said she scolded him in the bus just now and there is none of her business why she KPO.)

Monster On Two Wheels




Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Health Dr Faishal's Facebook post about a road bully of Australian origin rings a bell: "Instead of assigning blame, it is important for us to remember that we must be gracious and respect one another on the roads."

It has to be a paraphrase of Member of Parliament (Tampines GRC) Baey Yam Keng's ringing endorsement of PRC scholar Sun Xu's diatribe (“There are more dogs than people in Singapore”) directed at our senior citizens: "We need to reflect upon ourselves, are we the way they described?"

Police investigates FT road rage cyclist


Australian cyclist Kenneth

The police have confirmed that they are investigating a case of road rage involving an expat cyclist along Keppel Bay Drive last month, as well as a case of the same cyclist stopping in the middle of the road to challenge a driver this month. In the latter case, the driver’s in-car video captured the whole incident along Keppel Road (video: ‘FT cyclist breaks traffic rules, challenges driver‘)

The police’s confirmation came after Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Health, Dr Faishal, posted a comment about the 2 incidents on his Facebook page yesterday (25 Oct):
“Many have asked for my opinion on the recent incidents involving a cyclist and other motorists. I understand that the Police are already investigating both incidents.
Instead of assigning blame, it is important for us to remember that we must be gracious and respect one another on the roads. Cyclists, motorists and pedestrians alike must abide by traffic rules and play their part in looking out for one another. When we demonstrate courtesy and empathy, our roads will be safer for everyone. I believe that we can all contribute to making everyone’s journeys safer and more pleasant.”
With regard to the first incident, the police said that they received a call at about 7.44am on 16 September 2013 for assistance along Keppel Bay Drive. When they arrived, it was established that an alleged case of road rage had occurred.

No country, no govt, no citizen – bo cheng hu

The pathetic incident of this guy spitting at two young women at Woodlands Interchange, grabbing one of them and harassing them, is what this country has turned into, bo cheng hu. This guy went spitting at one woman after another several times each and everyone, including SMRT staff could only watch like a despicable circus act. No one could or would stand up to stop the abuse and humiliation of two women in broad daylight, in a crowded place.

How could such a thing happen in a first world city? I can offer only a few reasons. Everyone was so civilized except the guy who spitted at women, or everyone was so selfish, so afraid or did not know what to do or whatever. Chivalry is dead. Manhood is dead.

What happened could be like this. The guy could be fierce, but from the video, any medium built guy could knock him down. He was no big hunk, more like a grown up boy. Anyway, the women could also be foreigners. The people watching also could be foreigners, or most of them. Any Sinkie there, maybe a few

Man spits at woman: thuggish behaviour on the rise

A very aggressive young man spat on a lady not once but several times at a bus interchange.

It was disappointing that SMRT staff merely watched helplessly as he continued to hurl abuse at the lady, and didn’t try to restrain him from attacking the lady by spitting at her again and again.

With his face captured on camera, I’m sure Singapore Police Force (SPF) will have little problem in arresting him.

Rude man spitting at commuters in bus interchange

A video depicting a disturbing scene at the Woodlands Bus interchange is now viral where a man was filmed verbally insulting commuters at the interchange and spitting at a lady. It was posted as a video on Facebook by a person by the name of Sia Jianhe.

In my opinion, the SMRT staff on ground should have known better what to do about this man apart than just standing by and waiting for something to happen. The man was spitting at the lady right in front of their eyes! Were they waiting for him to board the bus or just walk off?

What if he was in fact showing early signs of being aggressive, and he had a knife in his possession? Could they have reacted in time to subdue him? Even if he did not do anything drastic at the interchange, what if he did something very wrong else where? None of their business? The general public would have assumed that by having an ex-general as the SMRT’s CEO, there will be directives passed down for the staff to be ready for exceptional situations like this incident.

Not a good spitting image at all

Spitting man

A man was spitting and swearing at two women, and also pushed some members of the public, at Woodlands bus interchange last night (Screen capture from video by Sia JianHe)

The latest in what looks like a trend of taking videos of transportation-related incidents: A man causing a ruckus and spitting in two women’s faces several times at the Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange yesterday at 9.30pm. The video, originally uploaded by Facebook user Sia JianHe last night, has gotten over 1,900 likes and over 14,000 shares.

There is a law against spitting in public in Singapore… In the statutes it specifies spitting on public places like roads and buildings, but it probably also applies to spitting in people’s faces. It’s considered a chargeable offence – a fine up to $1,000, to be precise. Add that to the other charges this fellow is liable to, namely harassment as well as threatening others, each of which can call for a fine up to $2,000. And that’s just for the things we can see in the video.

Spitting incident at Woodlands Interchange: SPF should carry out active policing

20131026-160423.jpg

It’s heartening to note that SPF have been swift to arrest the spitter. I watched the video and found it scary the way he humiliated the woman and struck fear into those who happened to around at the time.

This highlights the need for SPF to boost its policing in public areas. So far it’s ignored this.

What if the arrested man had had a weapon? He’d have inflicted serious injuries or even caused a death.
Once again SPF have been reactive instead of being more proactive with active policing

MP ANG HIN KEE: DON’T BLAME EXTERNAL FACTORS



Ang Hin Kee, MP for Ang Mo Kio GRC, said, “I have been to crowded places and seen how people accommodate one another. You have a choice. Don’t blame external factors for our behavior.”

Ang was referring to the anti-social behavior of the hooligan who spat at the two female commuters and threatening to hit one of them if not stopped by a SMRT staff. Ang should experience the rush hour crowds at MRT interchange and then ask if the commuters have a choice not to be there.

I would like Ang Hin Kee to read the study on how white rats behaved when overcrowded and the comments by psychologist Joel Yang, ‘that commuters may become “increasingly angrier” and tend to react negatively to minor annoyances as Singapore’s population density increases.’ Yang also added, ‘It has been widely researched in major, densely populated cities that crowding is linked to anxiety, frustration, aggression, and inappropriate social interaction

The spitting Singaporean, forever immortalised on video, was reacting to his surroundings with escalating aggression and could not be muzzled.

He not only jumped queue while boarding the bus, but was foaming at the mouth.

One Singaporean, Yang Chong Wu, said: “Actually, if cannot euthanise, neuter him also can.”
