Everyone has been having varying opinions regarding the basikal lajak (modified bicycle) case. The case, which took place five years ago, became a public issue after the recent sentencing of the driver, Sam Ke Ting (沈可婷). At that time, Sam had been travelling along a road in Johor before colliding with eight teenage cyclists.
While most have been defending Sam, including a few local celebs, others think she deserved it. The parents of the kids too have stated they felt justice has been served to their children. However, this real estate agent who aired her unpopular opinion of the case on her socials got blasted – badly.
The real estate agent had apparently claimed on Facebook that Sam should have been charged with murder. According to the lady, Sam’s reasoning for killing eight teenagers was flimsy. Sam had, during the case, stated she hadn’t seen the kids coming as the road was poorly lit.
“It is possible (Sam) thought (the kids) were too slow (so she) deliberately hit them,” the real estate agent wrote. “(Sam) should be charged with murder!” On top of insisting that it was a serious crime, the lady stated Sam “wasn’t really (human)“. “6 years in jail is cheap, don’t say unreasonable things!” she exclaimed.
Needless to say, netizens were quick to put her post on blast. One pointed out that Sam was indeed at fault, but didn’t think it was as serious as murder. “You say she killed 8 people in the crash, do you think she sleeps well every night?” they asked. Another wisely told the lady to be careful of her words. “Whether she is right or wrong, you shouldn’t be gloating,” they reprimanded.
The agent has since deleted her post. However, netizens were quick to remind her of it by uploading screenshots of said post. Well, perhaps their words have given the real estate agent more to think about. Sam will be facing the Court of Appeal today regarding her case.
