Pemuda Ganas Tolak Warga Emas Dari Bas

Seorang pemuda yang dikenali sebagai Alex Ong, 25, memarahi seorang warga emas berusia 76 tahun kerana lambat menekan loceng menyebabkan bas berhenti jauh dari perhentiannya. Jawapan nenek tua tersebut menaikkan darah Alex sehingga dia mengangkat tangannya untuk menampar nenek itu tetapi tidak jadi. Berlaku 'perang' mulut antara mereka lalu Alex menolak warga emas itu dari bas tanpa belas kasihan. Tindakan tidak bermoral Alex yang dilakukannya di dalam bas SMRT 167 di laluan Upper Thomson Road pada jam 3.15 petang, 5 Jun 2012 telah mengundang kemarahan orang ramai.

Namun, Alex membela dirinya dengan menulis sebuah nota di Facebook.

Before this hits the press, let me tell you my side of the story.

So this afternoon I was travelling by bus to Dhoby Ghaut. At around Thomson Road, this old lady hit the bell at the last minute, so I told her not to hit the bell at the last minute the next time. Immediately she shouted at me, "I did not do it intentionally!".

Of course, from my point of view I was only trying to advise her not to do this kind of thing, so I was quite agitated when she just shouted back at me like this. We got into an argument, and I told her to "get off this bus". She simply shot back, "no, I won't."

With emotions running high, I let loose a "I will slap you!" to her, to which she said "come!". I reached breaking point and gave her a light push, which resulted in her falling off the steps.

Now, I know I should never have done this, but if you were in my shoes, you of course could have exploded as well.

This resulted in her getting the driver of the bus to call for the police and ambulance, who arrived and took statements from both of us. Everyone on the bus had to be ushered onto another bus. I called my father just in case the old lady escalated the case, causing me to be detained by the police. He came by and explained my personal situation to the officers.

What's my personal situation, you ask?

I have been holding back all of these for a very long time, with only a few close to me who knew. I guess now is the time to bare it all.

I have OCD, I had clinical depression resulting from the abuse I went through in NS and secondary school, and when I was younger I was diagnosed with ASD.

Try struggling with all of these on top of having to deal with a lifetime of abuse and bullying, from primary school to NS.

On top of that, my emotions have been unstable recently because of the rage I had over that taxi accident. You know which one.

Obviously the state of my mind has been less than hardened; a simple tip could send it all crashing. And I guess this is what happened today.

I never intended to injure the old lady. I have a deep respect for elders. The only reason why I did any of this was because deep-down inside, I felt offended, I felt the need to defend myself.

I do not represent a society of decaying morals. I'm a product of a society that has abused me, neglected me, and ultimately, misunderstood me. I do not represent the decay of morals, I am the product of the decay of morals society has on individuals like myself.

I do not have an easy life. Money is hard to come by. My parents are separated. I only have three credits in 'O' levels. Jobs I like are near-impossible to come by.

When your life dreams are taken away right in front of you, by people who are supposed to help you, with the help of people who are determined to make your life miserable, the amount of rage that builds up inside you can only be immense.

You feel vengeful against society. You can only resign yourself to the sad fact that this is your karma. You must have offended too many people in previous lives.

No one really truly understands the pain I went through.

Now that I have bared it all, will you find a way to help me, or will you make my life even more miserable for your sadistic pleasure?

Your call.

P.s. the bus was TIB 446E.

Selain dari nota di atas, Alex turut menerangkan sekali lagi tindakan liarnya itu adalah kerana gagal mengawal emosi marah.

1001 alasan sekali pun yang diberikan oleh Alex Ong, masyarakat masih menghukumnya sebagai bersalah. Penulis turut mengutuk perbuatan Alex yang bukan sahaja tidak menghormati orang yang lebih tua malah bertindak agresif ke atasnya.
