i got a soft spot for graffiti art. found it quite nice looking actually.
yet on a more serious note, this really rings a huge bell for the mrt ppl at least. while the vid was uploaded in i think 14-16 june, it was only reported on the 19th. i wont blame on commuters. i guess they probably thought that it was an ad or something in line with arts fes that kind of stuff.
yet what i'm bemused is how the depot ppl actually didnt realise it. i would had thought they kept track of stuff, like ads in trains etc. surprisingly it took a delay of almost 5 days before any report was made.
rings any bell? sounds like mas selamat all over again. ran away from our detention center. now we have ppl doing graffiti on our mrt at depot. the lax of security would probably mean that terrorists could, if they had done so earlier, planted a cute little bomb on our mrt without a single person realising it, using the method of travel that the swiss guy did.
also, the ridiculous amt of time that the graffiti artist could actually stay there, to spray design and complete his art is at least 30 mins if not more. 30 mins is ridiculously long anyways.
well. i remember reading on an incident regarding orchard mrt is a target for terrorism. with this happening, i'll say its highly plausible for such an act to happen.
perhaps i feel that one: there has to be more transparency. the only reason i can think why ppl can think graffiti was an ad was due to the graffiti postbox actions in the past. perhaps thats why ppl dun bother abt it this time. (face it. a trainspotter discovered it LOL). no idea how, but ways could be thought up of i guess.
2: security at depot. (THEY didnt had ELECTRIC FENCES?!). the lax of security actually says a lot. mrt is the core of our transport system, ferrying millions of people daily. u wont want a bomb in there do u? this incident clearly shows that security is lax. 30 mins or more + infil to our core transport system. not a good sign
in light of the orchard terrorist target, i believe there is a need to up security of our key places. i certainly dun want a bomb here on the mrt i'm gonna ride later.
well. just my 2 cents. found it interesting.
