怒发冲冠! May 17, 2007

读了报章报道:一名华中初院生竟动手打司机!此事不仅令我感触良多,也使本人的血压起了不少。 真的是太荒谬了!一个就读一间十分注重所谓的 《传统华族文化》 的学校的年轻人,竟然会在光天化日之下对一名53岁的巴士司机大打出手,真不禁叫人发指!身为这间学校的前学生,此事对本人之影响更是深刻。

据说这个痞子之所以会动手打人,是因为他与女友在乘搭巴士时易通卡出现了故障,司机因怀疑两位的易通卡有可能是偷来的而不让他们下车而引起的。在司机的阻挡下,这位学生竟恼羞成怒,动手打人!要不是其他乘客见事不妙,及时把二人拉开,恐怕司机的伤势会更加严重。

在众人的阻拦下,该流氓竟然随后趁机刮了司机一记耳光!该名学生在冷静下来后立即拨电给他的父亲,痛哭流涕地告诉他所发生的一切。巴士在抵达巴士集 中处时发生了更叫人匪夷所思的事件。该学生的父亲竟然在巴士集中处等待着司机,在见到司机时竟双脚下跪,向司机道歉并恳求司机之原谅!司机之所以起了怜悯 之心,身为父亲的他也理解当家长的痛楚。

该学生也曾通过学校写了一份公函,以解释他的所作所为。他说,他对司机的攻击其实只是一场误会。此事是因司机先对他的女同伴动手而引起,而他对司机 的一拳只是在两人的拉扯之间无意中发生的。若此话能当真,那么请问为何要痛哭流涕的拨电给父亲寻助?分明是做贼心虚!还多次向司机道歉,难道一句《对不 起》能弥补你的过错吗?要是搞不好把司机打死,难道你要下地狱跟他道歉啊?辛好我不再当场。。。否则我的拳头都让他尝一尝了。

该流氓的如此推卸责任,自己敢野蛮霸道, 责任却一概推在他人的身上,实在是可耻。难道这就是华侨中学今日所培养的价值观吗?男子汉,大丈夫,一人做事一人当,自己动手打人,就必须要懂得承担后 果。这一切的一切,就是所谓的后果吗?连个屁脸都没露,你那他妈的面子有那么重要吗?还要你老爹代替你跪地向司机求饶!我呸!

另一方面还有学校的包庇。为何要包庇该名流氓?为何不让他面对现实,为何不让他了解,犯罪是要面对惩罚的? 难道当今社会只能包庇和掩盖,省得了面子省不了道德?此事曝光后,网民议论纷纷。该名学生事后不仅没受严惩,反而能拍拍屁股一走了之,令不少网民既困惑又 愤怒。若不严加惩罚,杀一儆百,那么此事将会给下一代的华中生带来什么样的印象?口口声声说不容忍此类的动粗,却又把事看成是一场误会而不加以调查,华侨 中学的说一套做一套,真是令人失望。

还听说华中憧憬着有一天能培养出一名总理。可见要抵达这目的还有一段很长,很长的路。除非是要“培养”出一名把面子看成是金的斯文败类,华中还需自我检讨一番。

hiya,

i read the newpaper article, and i don’t think the sch means to say it is a misunderstanding, but rather it is regrettable that it started fr a misunderstanding. that the student may not have understood what the bus driver was trying to explain abt the card, and so when he was stopped when trying to leave the bus, he made the attack which auf jeden fall is a mistake.

i think the sch IS going to punish the student and in my opinion, should also counsel the boy so that he does not make such a mistake again in the future. i think everyone deserves to be given another chance.

nothing against giving chances, but for one, the school should have investigated. what’s more, it’s one guy’s letter against a busload of witnesses. Let the truth come to light first loh.

3. passerby - May 19, 2007

I personally feel that Hwa Chong ppl are quite one kind. I am not surprised to hear such things. No respect for elderly, think they are damn smart etc. Many Hwa Chong people I know feel so proud to be termed a HCian they have no character of their own, only that of their sch. ie to say, even years after leaving college, they are still living in that period of their life, where mass dance mass lunch, flirting with opposite sexes and silly brotherhoods meant everything.

Should that guy be from some neighborhood schools, perhaps Miss Xizhen would have think otherwise about the second chance.

4. guojun - May 20, 2007

lucky i got out of hwa chong after sec sch loh. To tell you all the truth, i didn’t have a good 4 years there. lol.

5. topasserby3 - May 20, 2007

Why do people associate such things to the larger community? Why not insult his family, school and his nation for his upbringing? Let’s go further to insult humanity as a whole as he’s one of us.

6. xizhen - May 20, 2007

topasserby3:

hi, i certainly do not think only abt giving him a 2nd chance here because he is from hwachong. anyone deserves a second chance. if the police charges him that would be justified too. however i believe in counselling and i believe people can turn over a new leaf given the right guidance. and the school is in just the right position to help him in this aspect being an educational institution.

i have no comments about your comments about people from hwachong. i refrain from making such associations because i feel it is unfair. furthermore, if you are not from a sch, it is difficult to understand what makes it become a part of the people to such an extent as you claim.

7. xizhen - May 20, 2007

to passerby3 (that previous comment also to passerby3 and not 5):

i’d like to ask u to think abt how u wud feel if pple said u have no respect for elderly and think u’re damn smart based on which sch u come from. if u don’t like the feeling, pls don’t make such generalisations..

8. guojun - May 20, 2007

well, you can always expand an argument. People are targeting hwa chong now because of the expectations. And, if you want, the school, family, AND nation have to shoulder part of the blame as well. Why does this person believe he can just punch any bus driver? You could say it’s because 1. the school is very competitive and you don’t really need morals, you just need results, 2. the family never really told him what was right or wrong, 3. the country is such that you don’t get second chances. So everyone is so protective. Really what. Go to jail more than 1 week means no uni. You think our young punk can take that?

I was from hwa chong. And i know that to a certain extent, it makes people like that. If you don’t believe me, it’s fine.

9. passerby - May 20, 2007

to Miss xizhen. Nothing against you personally but its just the kind of elitism that breeds invariably with your so called school spirit. Well, if you can define for me what makes the HC spirit so special, I’d really appreciate it. Do you mean to say that all the silly mass dances, OG lunches, overnight stays, flirting with ‘Seniors’, singing songs,talking cock, bonding with teachers are special to only HC? If there are things which I’ve missed out here and plays a life-changing role, do enlighten me. As much as you would want to believe, such things are everywhere in schools all over spore. They are silly. To hang on to the so called spirit all through your life is an indication to me of the lack of critical self opinions and decision making skills.

Perhaps I am biased, but I do think that people should move on. Stop living in the days of the so called ‘spirit’. Pitiful since to me it indicates a painful lack of exposure and experience.

I have friends from HC and whenever they meet a fellow sporean of the same age elsewhere,one of the first few questions they’d ask is which JC you come from. It’s truly laughable since it seems like they’re refusing to move on and stucked somewhere in their teens. They told me its because if you’re from HC, there is this closeness and familiarity and you’ll probably click better. I think such logic is bullshit. I click with anybody I think is of good character and worthy of being a friend. Not so much based on which school you come from and definitely not which JC. It’s so …… childish. haha.

Now of course not all of the HC ppl I know are like that, but I would say a good majority. Don’t you agree miss Xizhen?

10. passerby - May 20, 2007

Gosh.Its funny to see how easy it is to irritate HCian. A little insult is all it takes. haha

11. guojun - May 20, 2007

ah? lol no la i left after sec 4…i’m not really offended…responding to xizhen…

12. HaoJun - May 20, 2007

HCian or not, at the end of the day, it all boils down to the individual’s upbringing. I agree with you gj, i think this guy should have his name made known to the public. no doubt his future will be tough, given that people will look at him differently, but i think that it’s only right that he have to work harder himself to win back any respect and decency for himself. at least IMO that would be a fitting punishment and justice for the mob.

13. HaoJun - May 20, 2007

good job on the chinese btw~ it was a good read. =)

14. guojun - May 20, 2007

ya…that was my point from the start. after all, i’m sure his dad can send him overseas if its too much in sg. =P

15. The Truth - May 21, 2007

To passerby: what you say deserves merit in that it is very true that it breeds elitism. But if you will notice, it breeds elitism everywhere, in that by focussing on how wonderful and unique that particular school is, it becomes such that that particular JC becomes the best in the world, other JCs can’t hold a candle, yadda, yadda. The problem about Singaporeans and what makes them so elitist and ‘arrogant’, as we’ve been branded once before, is that we always think Singapore = world. Just like we are inclined to think that PAP = Singapore = world.

Thus, you can see the JC problem as a microcosmic view of it – JC = my world. People often think that they cannot click with people from other JCs. When i left TCHS to go to NJC, people asked me, ‘but you’re leaving a family. The Hwa Chong Family.’ Whoa, sounds so great right? Dude, i went to NJC because i HAD to get out of there. I was so sick and tired of it all.

As for the social problem of Singapore = world, i don’t know where the underlying cause is however. Is it because of
‘uniquely singaporean?’

16. passerby - May 21, 2007

To me this discussion is simple, be it HCian or RJcian or VJcian or what not. I find it amusing how some never got out of their silly JC mentality or ‘spirit’ even after leaving JCs for like years. I mean it’s like bringing down the whole meaning of the word ‘Spirit’. When I think of spirit, I think of the spirit of giving, the spirit of sharing, the spirit of forgiving, the spirit of accepting differences etc etc. something higher than mass dance, cheer leading, painting banners, you know what I mean. While most of us move on to realize the silliness of that period of our youth AND laugh it off as a time of hormonal imbalance, some esp those from the ‘family’ we’re talking about never manged to do so.

I believe they like to hang on to the idea that what they had was special and one of a kind. To people who are used to being academically ‘special’ and being brainwashed to think they’re the ‘elites’, the notion of being a social nobody is just too much to bear. Unfortunately such people bring down the name of the entire school and smear the name of the truly good ones.

Its the same as how some OCS officers behave in Universities. They clench to their authority and give others the creep even through their civilian outfit. Well, they don’t understand that respect is to be earned and not to be ordered. This is a fine example of how the whole singapore brand is characterized. One of pseudo meritocracy and filled with many dogs that bark louder than they bite.

The theme ‘Uniquely Singapore’ is such a cliche but I guess as long as it sells, it doesn’t matter. For me personally, I’d prefer Singapore to be known as a society of giving, of strength in humility, and of success without elitism. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s possible.
