The recent RVHS incident

The recent RVHS incident shocked our nation to the core and seriously, nobody could make sense of it.

I believe that many, many people were traumatised by it and as a father myself, I was deeply saddened by it too. I fully empathise and I pray to God to grant that victim’s family much strength and comfort during this period of time and far beyond.

In this commentary, I want to focus on the type of weapon that was used. An axe.

Many teenagers and young people including older children don’t just play innocuous online or video games. Many such games are very violent fighting games, killing the opponents using all sorts of weapons with blood splattering all over and players can go on to different levels of killings and accomplishments etc. What is worse is that many young people are addicted to them.

One such game that I came across online is Next Gen GTA 5 PS4- New Weapon Gameplay (GTA V Gameplay).

Unlike tobacco products that teenagers and children are disallowed from buying, access to such online games have no such restrictions with the privacy at home to indulge in is so convenient.

Furthermore, young people are much vulnerable and easier to be engrossed, inadvertently influenced, lost in their own world until they may be unable to truly differentiate between virtual and reality.

Today, many families have both parents working and many juniors and teenagers are left alone most of the time and accessing such violent and undesirable games are a breeze.

I would like to suggest a multi-pronged approach to tackle this issue.

1) Such software developers should be regulated in the Singapore market.

2) The relevant authorities must firstly recognised that such violent online games have potentially serious adverse influences on the well-being of our young people in the long run and move to act with seriousness.

3) Parents must make the extra efforts to be more aware of what their children are surfing or playing online too etc.

Think.

    RVHS case has been many days already.By now ,any investigations by police should have been concluded and police should come out with a police statement of the cause reason for such killing by tomorrow news and not let everyone here to be waiting for the news of caise of killing if police,MHA ,and evil backside minister of Law do not want any body to speculate !Failure of police to give a cause killing statement by the next two days,and the law has no right to block all of us from speculation ! You don’t to give the actual killing cause ,then you can’t block people from speculation ,right ? The law cannot keep on covering up such cases and expect everyone to act stupid to keep our mouth shut,right ?

    And what hapoen to that St Joseph Instituition male who fall from height just a couple of days ago too ? Evil backside women wing Straits Times after published it ,will very fast move such news off their main website and hide !

  • PAP mandate strong:

    Why not Up the ante.

    Banned all shows. Just show sg make dramas and variety shows. Even national Geo must ban too. If not lion hunt its prey or sharks attack its prey, too bloody too violent.
    Sports e.g. American football also very violent banned too. World cup too as fights sometime broke out.

    All muz become vegetarians as meat we eat also killed.

  • Think:

    Our sympathy go to the victim, family and all who were hurt.

    Do Simon realizes how many people are killed and or injured on the street due to driving, be it reckless, careless, irresponsible talking on the phone, speeding, etc, etc while driving. Police only have regulations to grant licence approval to non-mental senior but not consistently applied for those below 65.

    One sparrow does not make a summer. If everything must be regulated very soon we are more NK than North Korea. Do not just look on the bad side. Over protective will kill their creativity and development skill and (look at the good side) awareness in self defence.

    On the similar comparison, might as well ban NS, as it encourages killing. If so kiasi, ban also newspapers, ban movies, ban mobile phones, ban driving, better still ban going out on the street and ban talking too.

    One mental case the rest got punished, Simon is not thinking.

  • PSYCHO IMPACT:

    All porns and violent games have full adverse psychological impact on children.

    Living in a stressful society is what makes the children find their best ways to escape from the shackles of life.

    Today does not make a better tomorrow, coz tomorrow life will be full of sorrow should no one cares to intervene the existential anxiety faced by children in a pressure-cooker education system which does not promote lifeskills and vocational skills.

    Students are constantly traumatised with academic expectations, thus hindering their creative potential. In other words, they are MOULDED by the education system whereby they have no chance to innovate coz the mould limits them into moulded products, all identical; no variety, null and dull.

    Not surprising. Given a system that focus on academic excellence for material gain. The assembly line grads are just amoral pagans.

  • liew mun leong must be jailed:

    well said.

    agree.

    it is a sad event. the parents all never wanted it to happen. it has happened. may this event wake up other parents who still are able to remedy, if it needs remedying.

    other than saying truth about pap lies, we are really never agreeing to anything that is addictive, negative, or attacking anyone just to feel good or superior. some times, we even wonder if we should cease talking about pap lies. in this matter, we mostly stick to our guns and continue doing so until a New Government by a better group of citizen forms to rename parleement back to Parliament.

  • Not that I got no heart and no feel, but one isolated incident must make so much noise, implement simi lansai regulation to control the game programmers.

    Like that so many Sillizens commit suicide because cannot pay HDB debts and S&C charges, why not close HDB and the banks also?

    What if one day someone kenna suffocated by a condom during S&M then how? Also want the implementation to ensure that condoms are breathable or have holes in them?

    If was a very unfortunate incident indeed and if there is blame to go around, I suggest start with the parents and the school. He already has mental issues (been to IMH), the parents and the school should have kept a special watch on him and arrange for regular counseling.

    Don’t follow like some parents in China, children cannot get good grads, blame it on the makers of mobile phones and Wechat.

    It is so easy to point fingers at others for our own failings, but remember that when one finger is pointed at others, the remaining 4 are pointed at ourselves.

    My condolence to the family of the victim, he surely did not deserve this and I hope the due process of the law would give them the closure they need.

  • Elite:

    Almost 60 years. Smoking during my school days till today. Smoking in school toilets still exist. I understand at later at one stage counsellor are appointed with additional school personal been sent for Police training or something to that in every school. Gangsterism and bully thought was well taken care. With the recent incident, one must go back to the drawing BOARD and see what went wrong. Need feedback or opinion or respond views – plenty. But will the top management listen ???? Start all over again as though things are back to square one 60 years ago

    so very well said.

    agree 1,000,000,000%.

    every green inch is used up for greed. where got end? for whose benefit? is life really about 10m pairs of armpits when natural selection on small island is showing it is 3m thereabouts only?

    when every inch is built up, heat during hot days gets more intense. with 3m thereabouts all firing up the aircond, already contribute to local warming. imagine 10m all firing up aircond. sure a major contributor to local warming.

    cannot allow to proceed. even current 6.9m already heats things up tremendously. when New Government is formed, the first thing to do is to let go the perennial 500,000 PRs, and the 3.4m aliens.

    then, only then, small island has chance to cool down.

    truly, pap is so ffffing moneyed face these S$m ownself pay ownself folks just don’t seem to realize their error.

    small island. natural selection. year in year out shows it is 3m thereabouts. the 3.9m additional aliens, whether the perennial PRs or the ceca ah nehs and such, all must be returned to their own kampung.

    why they cannot stay in their own land of birth to contribute to its growth boggles the mind. we just think they should create jobs in their own land of birth, and not come here to create jobs for cotton sheep who after all don’t need a job as statistics show since cotton sheep all happily voting pap who ensures these cotton sheep become jobless at age 40.

  • Math Guy & his Vainglory:

    “We are the intelligent elite among animal life on earth and whatever our mistakes, [Earth] needs us. This may seem an odd statement after all that I have said about the way 20th century humans became almost a planetary disease organism. But it has taken [Earth] 2.5 billion years to evolve an animal that can think and communicate its thoughts. If we become extinct she has little chance of evolving another.”

    James Lovelock, “The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning”

    It is impossible to negate Mother Nature, for it is part of the ultimate truth. One can suppress it for a while, but the truth will always better us. Sure enough, it is in the weakness of human nature to deny & subvert the truth. And what a contradiction it is for us to subvert the earth to our whims and ambitions when it is God’s natural environment that nourishes the creatures. Yet, the Pappy psychopathology perceives the world overwhelmingly through “$$$ & cents” vision…. sheeples are just economic digits in their gigantor militant money machinery.
    May God have mercy upon us.

  • question Mark?:

    Its not about psychological attention.
    The INFLUENCES,mostly evil,from Violent computer games etc is immense.
    Even adults as smart as our scholar-gahmem are influenced?
    LW quoting a line from *DARK KNIGHT*,for instance.
    Why not quote the Holy Bible or Koran or Buddha?

    So,you see,what is lacking is proper RELIGIOUS N MORAL EDUCATION IN OUR SCHOOLS.
    WE SEEM ASHAMED TO BE MORAL OR RELIGIOUS BUT WE ARE SO PROUD TO BE VERY SECULAR N *$*- WOR$HIPPER$?
    MINISTERS QUOTING FROM ELEMENTS FROM IT games like DARK KNIGHT IS INDEED ALARMING????

    CANT BLAME OUR KIDS,EVEN FROM GOOD SCHOOLS,TO ENACT THEIR FAVE COMPUTRR GAMES’ CHARACTERS,GOOD OR DARK FORCES???

  • Soccerbetting2:

    Why the RVHS principal did not need to resign or fired off to hold responsibility for such a murder at her/his school ? Such big case also no need to fire her/his off meh ? The whole education sector helm for Chan Chun Seng can be so lenient and no need to hold the in charge and that is the removal of such or incapable principal from the school in which a murder is committed ? Obvious her/his control is a problem that create unnecessary stresses to her/his student such that her/his student has gone mad !

    Today,I was at Harbourfront OCBC bank outside and OCBC bank is not opened yet.Inside show only 2 male staff while the rest of at least eight are female ! And the leader is another female b**** ! The whole group are seated inside with transoarent glass showing a meeting briefing before operation .An old man waiting oitside complain to me about why OCBC never install some chair for him to seat as he say “old man” need a seat as their leg cannot take it while waiting for them to open ! One thing that this old man failed to understand is this Singapore is run by evil bsckside women society where all bank jobs are filled by wonen ! Just look at OCBC,POSB,and all other bank,and everywhere, how many counter staff at bank are manned by the male ? All those evil b**** backside AWARE women wing talking about inequality,why don’t they advocate to have half the banking staff job reserve for the male ? Pui! No wonder all those male are so stress to dead by such mad women wing right society !!!!Pui! Just look at everywhere and all jobs must be given to female priority ! You just look at all those safe ambassador position and you find the majority are given to women !Pui! And why school principal jobs must be given to women to run too ?

  • Notes on Soul Character:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae21GYLB238

    “Declare your inner struggle (jihad) against the 13 enemies you cannot see :-
    Egoism, Arrogance, Conceit, Selfishness, Greed, Lust, Intolerance, Anger, Lying, Cheating, Gossiping and Slandering.

    Only if you can breakdown and master these blameworthy traits of character, will you then be ready to fight the enemy you can see.”

  • Delivery of Education Devilery:

    Children are vulnerable to Devilery when Delivery of Education is overwhelmed with academic grades rather than character and wellbeing of the psychological aspects of students’ life.

    In our context, excellence means to do well in studies and all the endless mugging for exams. This is the root of mental health imbalance that creeps into the minds of present day students of all ages.

    Students are constantly facing peer pressure, parental great expectations and school decathlonic race, all in the name of meritocracy. These are the real Devils that dwell in the hearts and minds of students.

    Children from broken homes are either rebellious or totally withdrawn especially when both parents become jobless or underemployed. Those under the care of elderly grandparents become worrisome when they see them fall sick.

    No one could see what actually is going through in the mind of individual student.
    But there are tell tale signs and sypmtoms of troubled minds that could translate into violence or suicide that adults and educators should be in constant look out for.

    Just take a look and relook into our P5 & P6 syllabus across every subject. They are one of the contibuting factors that drive young minds mad. And young children mostly do not know how to voice out their grievances. They are left crying in the wilderness of a very stressful educational system.

    @ PSYCHO IMPACT

    BRILLIANTLY PUT there. It is density intensive education of high-pressure cooker environment BUT NO LEARNING OR LEARNING TO LEARN where changes accelerate at an accelerating rate beyond reach of adults.

    The result is escapism, self-destruct in some cases and in others no adaptation of survival/development skills.

    There is no such thing as regimented learning. MOE has failed big time.

    PSYCHO IMPACT: All porns and violent games have full adverse psychological impact on children.

    Living in a stressful society is what makes the children find their best ways to escape from the shackles of life.

    Today does not make a better tomorrow, coz tomorrow life will be full of sorrow should no one cares to intervene the existential anxiety faced by children in a pressure-cooker education system which does not promote lifeskills and vocational skills.

    Students are constantly traumatised with academic expectations, thus hindering their creative potential. In other words, they are MOULDED by the education system whereby they have no chance to innovate coz the mould limits them into moulded products, all identical; no variety, null and dull.
