In commenting to my earlier article on "What Happened Today", there was an Anonymous reader who said "In order to be a very 'sick-maniac-monster', i think that culprit has to be racism, uneducated & holding grudge against the family for some reason (assuming young Nurin is still a kid and innocent).
I have a feeling it has to be Ah Long or somekind. Only these people have the ability to do this... Because for the rest of us... we still have the sense of humanity.. doesn't matter what conflict arise.
I hope the culprit will be the first to be put on electric-chair.
While the intention might be sincere in finding the reasons for this gruesome murder, the notion that the tragedy is Ah Long related had unnecessarily saddled the parents with more and more pressures.
This same angle has also been taken by at least one press report as well as said to have been "suggested" by the Police.
I have checked with the Police to find out the validity of this Ah Long's related argument, and I was told that no such link has been established and if there is, indeed it would be a historic breaking of traditions of the Ah Long modus operandi.
Have you ever heard of an Ah Long abducting the child of its "defaulting borrower" without first threatening the borrower, without demanding for the loan to be re-paid but end up sadistically torturing an innocent child?
Wow, if indeed the Ah Longs are capable of doing these horrible things then the Police must go all out to make their very existence disappear from the face of the earth.
But the reality is the presence of Ah Long in our daily life is tremendous, the minute we step out from our house, especially in flats, we will be greeted with inviting small notices being pasted all over the walls. Not only that they are also pasted all other public domains from bus stops, telephone booths and even at road signages!
I have not heard of any of these Ah Longs been taken to tasked, despite the voluntary disclosure of their whereabouts where we can meet them by just calling the telephone numbers displayed!
If I am in any dire straight situation, I myself would be tempted to give them a call for an easy loan. Eventually I can get my own child killed brutally if I don't pay up within the agreed terms and conditions.
If the police (and the government)acknowledges this monstrous threat of the Ah Long, then they have to make it their mission to get rid of them all together and not giving suggestions that this so and so crime is Ah Long related and so on without feeling guilty that you have actually let this specie roaming about freely in our society.
As for my brother, I can safely say here that though he might not be wealthy, he lives within his means, and if at all he needs help, he has his sources, sources which definitely are not Ah Longs or any of the relatives of Ah Long!
On the day he claimed his daughter at the mortuary, Kosmo published an article that connects the crime to Ah Long. He was so devastated that one can even suggest that the heinous crime committed to his child was due to his own doing!
Let us not loose focus here, we should concentrate in tracking this perpetrator, not only to give justice to Nurin but to safeguard all other kids out there from falling prey to this monster.
