What a day! After witnessing the verbal spat between the old man and the TODAY vendor, I witnessed another display of antisocial behaviour two hours later. As I passed the library, I noticed a police sergeant armed with a video camera shooting scenes off a wall between the library’s main entrance and its ‘book drop’.

I inched forward and was flabbergasted to note the aforementioned wall was heavily vandalised. There was a note scribbled in paint containing a serious contempt and humiliation of a certain religion in our society. The perpetrators, in their sanity, chose the wall besides the library main entrance, where a video surveillance camera might be located for monitoring purpose as a challenge to the authority in my opinion.

These vandals should not be let off. Any attempt to undermine the social fabric Singapore has taken to build over decades must not be cordoned.
