Your crimes can be washed away if you are rich

Is the title of this entry true? I don't know.

So, This accident just reminded me of my Adel's accident.

Such accidents can be avoided if you don't speed.
Don't drink and drive.
Be more careful.

But what if you're sober (did not drink), didn't speed and extremely careful BUT A CAR JUST CAME DASHING AT YOU?

I feel for the taxi's family. He was the sole breadwinner.
I feel for the female passenger. She merely boarded a cab.

And they are gone just like that.I really feel for them. I didn't get to speak to Adel before that accident too. I didn't get to see her one last time alive.

Eye witnesses already said the PRC reek of alcohol. So why is Strait Times still defending him?

Please, you gotta protect your own people.

We had been scolded as dogs by a student who was PAID to study here. Now? PRC killed 2 people! But all you wanna report is how much he had contributed to Singapore?

Listen. No amount of contributions or money can bring a life back. I can't buy Adel back.
Being rich doesn't give you the right to take away innocent lives.

Singaporean cabby whose taxi was rammed by Ferrari has passed away from his injuries

Posted by temasektimes on May 14, 2012

The 52 year old Singaporean driver Mr Qin De Fu has succumbed to his injuries and passed away in the evening at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

“His lungs, liver and brain are all bleeding massively. Doctors said as the bleeding occurred in the center part of his brain, they are unable to operate on him,” his wife told the media, breaking down in tears.

He leaves behind his wife, two sons and a daughter. He is the sole breadwinner of the family.

Mr Qin was driving across a junction in Bugis when the green light was flashing when a red Ferrari driven by a PRC ‘foreign talent’ appeared out of nowhere and rammed into his taxi, a Hyundai Sonata which overturned on the spot trapping him and the female passenger in it:

Ma Chi died on the spot and the female passenger passed away hours later in hospital.

Such an accident being caused by a foreigner would have sparked a massive outcry in other countries but not in Singapore where the mainstream media had a field day ‘glamorizing’ Ma Chi by describing him as a ‘tall, young, handsome and successful‘ tycoon with a net-worth of millions of dollars as if he was some super-star:

The Straits Times even tried to defend him by quoting from his friends that he did not drink that night after a meeting at a clan association even when eye-witnesses already said he reeked of alcohol when they approached his body. It also tried to elicit public sympathy for the family of Ma Chi while ignoring the pain and suffering of other victims. -I don't wanna lose my respect for the newspaper. But why?

Instead of castigating Ma Chi for causing the fatal accident, the mainstream media chose to focus instead on his ‘tremendous contributions’ to Singapore since arriving from Sichuan province a few years ago, adding that he was a member of a clan association for Sichuan Chinese and is well ‘integrated’ in local society.
