Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe blame must not be pushed onto people unnecessarily anymore, have come out to appeal on behalf of the robber who robbed a Standard Chartered bank in Holland Village.

One Singaporean, Yue Liang Ta, said: “Let him go scot-free. Singapore no longer has a blame culture. We only have a learn culture.”

“The pain and regret from robbing a bank and having to make a run for it will cause lactic acid to build up in his legs and make him feel tired and out-of-breath and make him think about how he should have trained harder for the event but did not.”

Other Singaporeans said the authorities can make this a learning point.

A local, Mah Ta Lia, said: “Maybe if we stopped arresting people, that would be a start to a learning culture.”
