“A serial cat killer may be on the loose”, reports mainstream media on the recent deaths of stray cats at Pasir Ris Park.

Visit their report in the links below:
Straits Times – Dead felines in Pasir Ris Park raise fears of serial cat killer
Today Online – Dead felines at Pasir Ris Park spark concerns of serial cat killer

The titles lacks any originality, which may imply that the angle of the story was fixed.

According to what TOC gathered, nothing had happened to the cats for years till the recent event, “Water Venture Adventure Challenge” that was held right next to the Water Venture building, under People’s Association where the cats roam.

The event that was held on 21 June, had Deputy Prime Minister, Teo Chee Hean as the guest of honour.

Event held right next to where the cats used to roam

TOC understands that this led to a massive cleaning operation by the Water Venture to clear up the place in light of the presence of DPM Teo.

A week before the event, the cleaners at the area had warned the feeders to relocate the cats as they have been instructed to clean the place thoroughly due to the walk that will be carried out.

Water Venture has declined to meet representatives from the National Parks and Cat Welfare Society to talk about the issue.

Event at Pasir Ris Park not reported

So apart from TOC, this detail was given to the mainstream media but was it reported?

Just why did the mainstream media leave out the fact that the event which Deputy Prime Minister, Teo Chee Hean was held just last Sunday and that there was a “clean-up” operation by PA’s Water Venture?

If similar circumstantial evidence were presented in court for murder, Attorney General Officer could surely find one guilty of murder by proving that the person had the right motivation and unusual circumstances surrounding the incident.

The cats disappeared all at once, instead of one by one. Which begs the question of why MSM labelled the cat killer as a serial cat killer when it was only a one-time incident, a better description of this perpetrator would be mass cat killer.

While DPM Teo would likely have no idea of what was done prior to his presence as VIP for the event, but having the death of the cats being mentioned along with his name, would be certainly negative publicity.

Should the points were highlighted in media, there is no doubt what conclusion would members of the public come to after all these years dealing with individuals from People’s Association and the Resident Centres.

前日,《海峡时报》报导一则不幸新闻:一名约60岁德士司机行驶途中疑心脏病发突然昏迷不醒,车上还载着妇女儿童四名乘客,险象环生。所幸一名司机急中生智,把自己的车切到德士前,好让德士停下,才避免更严重的惨祸发生。 事件发生在10月1日,名为甄思良行驶中发现有关德士左摇右晃,觉得不对劲,危急之下他把车子切到德士前,让德士撞上其车尾,失控的德士才停下。 据报导,当时坐在德士副驾驶座的女乘客控制住驾驶盘,把车开到路肩停下。但德士司机已昏迷不醒;后来司机被送到议员,不过已无法抢救而逝世。 回溯今年3月22日,红山发生德士失控撞向行人的致命车祸,男子被证实因肝肿瘤意外破裂,在开车之际突然陷入昏迷导致他在无意识下酿成无法挽回的意外。那位司机也已年届75岁。 同样在3月10日,一名康福德高德士司机,行驶在东海岸高速公路时,途中突然晕厥。车子曾失控并两次擦撞路堤,但随后放慢车速,乘客乘机下车求救。 被环境局开罚单  德士司机跪地求饶 还有近期网传一则图片,显示一名德士司机跪在路旁,向两名两名环境局人员求饶。后来当局证实,该德士司机因为在车上抽烟,被罚款200元。 尽管这位司机先生不需要这么做,但或许他有苦衷,若不是生活所逼,或是财务上捉襟见肘,才不得已放下身段求饶。要知道有时一天载客所得,都不一定能补回这200元的罚款。 长时间工作易疲劳 德士师傅的工作枯燥,有时要长时间待客,并不如外界偏见认为般美好。长时间工作敖出病来,有者有时在外工作10多小时,开车一整天背部、肩颈、全身都会酸痛。 而且,道路上状况百出要长期保持警觉,有时还要注意其他的道路使用者,例如他摩托驾驶者、行人,现在还有个人移动设备(PMD)等。…
