A jobless Singaporean youth went berserk yesterday after he was mocked by a fellow youth at a local youth church group.
According to a reader who witnessed the scene, the youth had been sharing about his difficulties in finding a job. He was mid-way through his sharing when a fellow group member interrupted him and mocked at him, telling him, “Why you don’t be humble and just suck it up…”
Enraged, the jobless youth went up to the group member and slapped him across the face, sending the group into shock. After this, the jobless youth ran into the kitchen and came out with a knife to threaten the youth who mocked him. The group member fled out of the house and returned with the police half an hour later.
Police found the jobless youth, who had been crying after his outburst, calm and being counselled by a church leader in the group.
