Grassroots leader involved in unprovoked assault on elderly man

Mr. Joseph Wee and his Belgian shepherd

The mainstream media reported (3 Mar) that a grassroots leader is under investigations and currently out on bail after an unprovoked assault at Telok Kurau Park.

Last December, an elderly Mr. Joseph Wee and his muzzled Belgian shepherd Nero were walking home when a black chow chow appeared and bit Nero’s tail. Mr Wee thus began swinging the end of his dog’s leash at it.

To his shock, Mr Wee felt a sudden blow to his back which resulted in him falling forward to the ground. The impact resulted in cuts to his left hand and right elbow while his knees were bruised.

Despite this, his assailant – who appeared to be in his 30s – turned aggressive and wanted to fight.

“I was dripping blood everywhere because I was on blood thinner medication.”

The incident took place in front of more than 40 residents who were at the park for their morning exercise. About 10 of them came to his help after witnessing what happened.

After some witnesses wanted to call the police, they were allegedly told by the younger man to “shut up” and to not get involved.

An elderly eyewitness, Madam Lin Tan was quoted as saying: “I think what he did was terrible. If he can do that to an older man, he can do it to anybody.”

Upon seeing a doctor later, Mr. Wee found that he had fractures at his tailbone, which left him unfit for work for a month

It was also reported that the assailant was a grassroots volunteer named Roland Neo, holding the position of treasurer at a community club’s management committee.

The grassroots leader initially declined to talk the media, claiming that the police “had settled” the matter. He had also claimed that there was “no ill intention”.

The owner of a renovation firm said that he has “ran too fast,” and that he had only intended to “nudge” Mr Wee.

The latter had made two police reports and police have confirmed that the matter is under investigations.

 

 

* The People’s Association has clarified that Mr Neo is no longer the treasurer at a community club and that he left the post in 2017.

    Grassroot members now think n act as if they are above the LAW.

    HOW COME THEY ARE CULTIVATED THIS WAY?

    Even older grassroot leaders are behaving like crooks.
    Question here is WHY THE POLICE seems to cover up for their atrocities,

    Army officers,police officers should ensure their families,relatives behave too n uniformed offucers must protect n defend theur neighbours

    Grassroot leaders and their family members are mostly haughty and act like bullies thinking they are abovr the Law.
    Even police officers seem to be afraid of them for whatever reasons?
    Many flash their PAP membership/grassroot membership cards to the attending law enforcement officers to get privileges.

    Will Mr Shanmugam kindly look into this?
    This is not a rare incident,it is becoming a regular affair.

    When you have a “One hand covers sky” boss, you will have many “One hand covers sky” kakilang pit-bull dogsssss. BULLY has been PAP’s DNA and POLIS scared of them is also in POLIS’s DNA since 1965, you mean no one has notice? Then, you must be blind all these years.

    Why keep supporting bullies every GE, I dont understand.

    I can bet you he will not say a word. If the bully is Oppo, the whole cabinet from kee chiu, small-space4sex, ratdancer, chupattern to paika, one by one will fall in line to tell police to arrest & charge him. I hope the 40 witnesses will wake the F up, boycott them & spread the news. If they can do such thing to a fellow citizen, one day they can do it to you.

    They are the equivalent of the Brown Shirts of thugs and hooligans during Nazi times.

    We are seeing the same elements in our society now though they are called by different names. He is not the only one who thinks he can throw his weight around. It is one reason why they joined such groups in the first place–to lord over others.

    Singapore is slowly but surely sliding into a thuggish society where if you belong to the PAP you are “protected”. It is a big racket.

    Time to VTO the PAP to live a life free from abuse. It is our country–not the PAP.

  • why clown pap must raise GST:

    remember when Mr Yaw Shin Leong of WP a little mistaken indiscretion with a team member how clown pap Ljs and clown pap Cbs were indignant and no end of self righteous holier than thou attacks on Mr Yaw.

    as heaven has eyes and justice is equal under heave for all, and not the one clown pap law two clown pap interpretations on Spore earth, clown pap Lj mike palmer and clown pap PA director laura ong did much worse. but as is all things with clown pap hypocrites, not a whimper.

    so everyone we know has stopped listening to clown pap or clown pap PA or clown pap PA paid IBs. because all one sided. since clown pap mantra is always clown pap good all others bad. WTF.

    we were on a school PTA once. the first thing a parent did when trying to wrestle chairmanship of PTA was to announce membership of clown pap grassloot.

    we just shock our heads. this is idiocy at its upper limit. since there are still Sporeans who think membership of clown pap clan is a good thing.

    THE BLACK CHOW CHOW RUNNING AROUND WITHOUT BEING ON LEASH in that park has already offended both the statutory and common law – its keeper is in the law sanction.

    To then assault another compounded the offence at law, worst still an elderly vulnerable.

    It is a public safety issue on both counts.

    Police cannot close one eye now to mediate a solution – that would complicit itself in the law offence as well

    The law must take this matter to its logical conclusion.

    IN THE MEANTIME, THE PAPpys MUST KEEP ITS OWN WILD PUPPIES IN CHECK OF GOOD PUBLIC BEHAVIOR.

    IN AH TIONG LAND, I heard that members of the Communist Party are outside the rule of law – they can blatantly run amok of law offence including corruption and oppression of the masses and CANNOT BE PUNISHED UNTIL AND UNLESS THEY ARE SACKED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY first.

    But such pariah dogs protect their own pedigrees and territory with immunity, so corrupt conduct and corruptions just flourishes. Even Mao despises his “beloved” proletariat and is distrustful of peasants’ eyes and ears in case they become restless.

    Without its military and police apparatus, China would have long imploded.

    Hope LEE-jiapore don’t become like that too, if it is not already well on the journey there.

  • A good polampa:

    In a past address to Ntuc, Ntuc members were told that if Singaporean wants a job, he should be hungrier, greedier n more aggressive than the foreigners PAP has rampantly imported including taxi bashers, pedestrians basher, insulting public commuters as dirty n stinking…. So the shit polanpaed to become accepted by pap as grassroots members n leaders. It is not surprising he was so brutally aggressive to break the tailbone of the old resident. Could the Police inform Singaporeans what legal action has been taken on him? What compensation has the judgement award the badly hurt old resident. This will help other grassroots leaders n members to know that being grassroots leaders n members do not mean they are above the laws n can go around beating residents up. Police is there to protect Singaporeans n such cases should be highlighted in the mainstream media on the front page if possible just in case other grassroots leaders n members still thinking just being a pap members mean they can do anything including brutally beating a helpless old resident. If not for the alternate media, all these brutalities will remained zipped up n Singaporeans will be unprepared to avoid being so unlucky like the brutally hurt old man. All PAP MPs have the opportunity to address this issue lest similar thing could happen in their wards. Silence implies that pap n all pap related n controlled institution condone such attitude among its members n affiliates. This would forewarn all Singaporeans to keep these shits at arm length to be pounded on just in case these grassroots go on their aggressive walkabout like overlords! Now Roland Neo is the name to look out for and to wait for the authority real news n information on what legal action has been taken on him n how the badly hurt resident being compensated!
