“A 25 year old Masters student in Biotechnology was conned by a serial molester to ‘examine’ her breasts and vagina as part of a ‘medical examination!’
Former tower crane operator Mohamed Rizuan Rahim was sentenced to 10 years of jail and 16 strokes of cane on Wednesday for molesting six women as part of a scam.”
When I read that piece of shocking news last week, I kept thinking of it. It just can’t get off my mind. Other news I just read and move on. But this particular case kept coming back to haunt my subconscious mind. No worry I’m not jealous nor envy that crane operator’s talent in ‘conning’ six innocent victims as reported but questions kept popping up.
It seems that there were few other victims besides that Masters student. Precisely due to that Masters student victim that it generated so much on-line discussion here. Click here to read.
Not much details of the Masters student. We only know that she is a post graduate student doing her Masters degree in a local university – NUS, NTU, SIM or SMU, we are not sure. Whether she is a local or foreign student also not sure.
Anyway, if a person could study in an university Masters class, she definitely must be quite intelligent. To go right through the entire rigorous examination system till Honours degree and to Masters degree course, you must be quite intelligent to survive the whole process.
If that Masters student is intelligent, then how could she be ‘conned’ by a lowly educated crane operator? I’m really at a loss. Why is she such a blur sotong? Really can’t understand why she stripped naked to allow that con man to molest her breast and examine her private parts of all places, at a HDB staircase.
The Masters degree student like the other victims responded to the culprit’s online advertisement and believed that he was a medical doctor offering paid bodily examination. If the other silly girls were gullible I’m not surprised. But that Masters degree student – supposed to the cream of our excellent competitive education system surviving to university seems no different with other gullible Lian, Minah or Tankachi really baffles me?
What’s the use of spending tons of parents’ and taxpayers’ money training her to be a Masters degree recipient or maybe even a PhD graduate? Is there something wrong with our education system where she manages to slip thru the cracks? Is it a case of exam smart with zero EQ or street smart?
Since meritocracy and elitism based on paper qualification is deeply entrenched in our civil service and stat-boards, university graduates with bigger paper, will fill up higher positions if employed in the government service.
In SPF, it’s guaranteed senior officer for a general degree holder and definitely an ASP rank for an Honors or Masters. Imagine if that Masters student were to become my OC, maybe I could con her easily by asking her to strip just like that crane operator? Langgar!
I think the most ideal job for her will be a teacher at MOE since the latter is looking for rare virgin species to impart the correct sexual values to our young. Click here to read what bloggers are talking about MOE’s latest langgar policy. Only zero street smart Masters student spending all her waking hours perfecting on the art of passing exams to become exam smart fits the ideal teacher profile MOE is desperately looking for. Hopefully her students won’t be conned by another cunning crane operator.
I fear that that Masters student is a typical exam smart elite with zero street smart EQ eventually occupying all the top posts in our civil service. I do not care about her naivety or virginity. I only worry that such top elite scholar bureaucrats with iron rice bowl can never empathize with us commoners. They will never understand our bread and butter issues since they are so gullible and easily conned. I hope this case is the exception rather than the norm.
Our destiny is in the hands of those exam aces Mandarins with perfect score but zero street smart EQ. Do we have a choice? I don’t think so. What do you think?
