Let Standard Chartered robber go scot-free as S’pore no longer has blame culture

Posted on 07 July 2016

Public and authorities can learn from this episode.


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.”
