In today's Straits Times, there is a news report of the death of a motorcyclist caused by two motorists.
The motorcyclist was thrown off his bike and landed in the centre lane by a motorist who made an illegal u-turn at Airport Boulevard. Before he could get up, another car driven by a woman rammed into him.
A witness chased after her up to Terminal 1, where she picked up her husband. Although he gestured to her to return to the scene of the accident, she just drove away and did not report to the police until 8 days later when she received a notice from the police.
Have we become so heartless that another person's life is so insignificant?
We have become such that we refuse to admit wrongs and do everything to evade responsibility.
We believe that the best defence is offence and will attack whoever reports or alerts us of wrongdoings.
Reading this news report makes me feel very sad for the future of Singapore.
