Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know what other people are thinking based on how they look, are urging the authorities to look for the Standard Chartered bank robber suspect at Clark Quay on Friday night.

This after they said they have credible evidence that the bank robber suspect will be there as the area is popular with white men who have some cash to spare.

One Singaporean, Kee Lim Jiu, said: “There is a high probability that the Standard Chartered bank robber suspect is at Clark Quay on Friday night.”

“I’ve been there before and I’ve seen that the area attracts a lot of white men with spare cash.”

Locals told police to look out for anyone who is white and who has a lager in one hand and a Southeast Asian woman in the other, as they will most likely be prime suspects.

Another local, Sng Char Bor, said: “We need to start putting ourselves in the shoes of a white man. What would a white man with S$30,000 in cash do in a place like Singapore?”

“He can’t buy a house, he will be able to afford rent with that money for about 10 months max, and if lucky, maybe get himself a second-hand car the most.”

“All these don’t even sound like much in a high cost of living place like Singapore.”

“So, he will most definitely blow it on booze.”

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.”
