If your son chased a fellow student with a bread knife around the school grounds, how would you react? While many of us could agree that we’d drag the boy from his collars and give him a good ass-whooping later on, this Singaporean mother did otherwise.
Visibly amused by her son’s ‘bravery’ and ‘fearlessness’, the mother, whose identity only known through her Facebook username of Cherry Rocher Yohaida, posted statuses defending her son and mocking the slashed victim.
This is the rough translation of what the ‘protective’ mother posted:
“F**k the idiots on twitter who said my son lost his shoe. The f****r who got his ass kicked wearing the black smart shirt wore his shoes but how come he ran?! That 19 year old wear black shirt is a f*****g poser, running away from my son who is 16 year old. You may have shoes but you don’t have the balls hahahaha!”
We think the heavily-tattooed matriarch confused lenient nurturing to just lazy parenting.
This is how we imagined the scenario post-incident: Son comes home sweaty and covered with dirt, with a bloodied bread knife in his hands. Son announces to Mom that he had just slashed another boy in school with it and now he’s in the hospital. Mother reacts,”What? A bread knife? WHY NOT A PARANG??!”
The 16-year-old has been charged on Wednesday with voluntarily causing grievous hurt in the lunchtime brawl at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) College West.
The boy used a bread knife with a 35cm blade to slash his victim at ITE College West along Choa Chu Kang on Tuesday at 12.30pm. The bread knife, if used as a weapon of offence, is likely to cause death.
He slashed the unnamed victim’s left arm, fracturing his elbow bone.
It was reported that the fight was presumably over a girl. Footage of the fight, recorded by students, was circulated widely on social media.
Muhammad Zuhairie was offered a bail of $15,000 (RM39,975) but the bailors must be his parents. If he is out on bail, he faces a 10pm to 6am curfew.
He will appear in court again on April 8.
If convicted, he faces a jail term of up to 15 years and may be fined and caned, according to The Straits Times.
Looking at the state of the mother, we seriously think that the boy would be better off kept at a detention centre somewhere.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
