Loan shark country as told by the victims

I can’t believe my eyes to read this in the forum page of the ST. Amine Delage’s family has been the victims of loan sharks harassment for 6 long years. And their only crime was to buy a HDB flat whose previous owner owed money to loan sharks. For 6 long years they suffered verbal abuses and defacement of their flats. And nothing could be done! Yes, the law could not apprehend the loan sharks. And now we have this public appeal for help! In the meantime they have to leave their children in the homes of their in laws for fear of harassment or harm. Unbelieveable but true. It is real! I lower my head in shame to think that this is first world country.

Good morning Mr. Bean!

Thanks for the morning glories after the eyeful of wilted hibiscus yesterday. You were so near to the subject that I think you could almost kiss her if you wanted to. Oh well, stop dreaming willya? You were using telephoto lens!

This post of yours is so relevant to the deep malaise of this loan shark country that I am surprised that you didn't titled it at twice the usual font size. Instead, it's untitled or the heading is unremarkable.

In that letter, the writer also mentioned that the police told him nonchalantly that loan sharks were even known to burn down apartments! Wow! as if that's some achievement of these criminals to be proud of! WTF.

Frankly, since we hang drug traffickers and murderers, it's high time we also hang the actual loan sharks who seemed never being able to be caught and give mandatory life terms without parole plus 24 strokes of the rotan to the scumbag runners. A few more for the cemetery isn't going to be fodder for all those teary eyed anti death penalty troublemakers. A country's reputable is at stake. What is the use of a gleaming clean and green mega city with "world class" this and that if we truly have a world class ineptitude towards eradicating a simple criminal activity.

Fockwits!

No need to be shameful Mr Bean.

Well, I've already made many arguments for having the right to the self-defence of yourself, your property and your family.

If the heartlanders were armed, this shit would have lasted 6 hours let alone 6 years.

Loan sharks try something funny...residents organise, load weapons and wait or hunt down the fuckers, either blow them away or haul their asses back to the heartlands to repair the damages.

Private enterprise -- through voluntary association and individual choices: answering market needs quickly.

Either which way, the heartlanders don't have to depend on the s-l-o-w state. 6 years? Fuck off. The bloody iPhone has been around for 4 years...and they're up to version 4 already!

That's government (public sector) "efficiency" for you!

i thought loan sharks like beggars are non-existent in SIN city???

Shall the MHA offer a reward scheme for bounty hunters to catch loan sharks? Such a scheme will be very attractive to the foreign talents. $5k per loan shark runner caught. $10k for the middle ring leader and $50k for a bigger shark.

The other option is privatisation for efficiency.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Ah yes. The bounty hunter idea. Free market, free agents at work.

However they will have to be armed -- at $5k-50k bounty, rest assured the loan sharks will be armed themselves. And of course someone will have to underwrite the bounty hunter's public liability.

Why give the gig to FT's? This is private enterprise: anyone can pitch for it. Including violent gun nuts in Perth :-)

Maybe, give the shark hunting job to the Gurkhas. Cheaper, more efficient, no bargaining and no quarters given.

If only they want to.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

That's a good suggestion. We have been paying them for so long and time for them to prove their worth. Bounty hunters can be messy and take in too much collateral damages when they start to fire at everyone. Ask the gurkhas to do a clinical job and no damage to civilians and properties.

Just don't use the same pot-smoking Gurkhas who were supposed to guard Mas Selamat.

Get the Gurkhas who have been "passed" by Lee Kuan Yew himself -- the fuckers who have stood outside and kept Oxley Rise safe for decades. LKY trusts gurkha's over locals. That ought to tell you something ;-)

Actually, as an aside -- Singapore should welcome the Gurkhas as Britain has rejected them, putting stress on Gurkha families and causing many of the kids to drop out and become drug addicts.

the police seems to be going all out against this menace, yet the media is not giving its helping hand Look at SPF Facebook, so many pictures of losnshark and runners in acts of harassment, still not solved? rarely see such pictures and appeals for info published in the newspapers
