A tattooed Chinese Singaporean woman was stopped by police after she was seen carrying around a lock and white masking tape.
This incident came to light after the woman posted her experience online and ranted about the “biased” treatment she received from the police. She claims that these Malay policemen who screened her had wrongly assumed she was a loan shark based on her race.
A netizen who read her post had this to say about her post: “She felt that the Malay police was being racist towards her however we know that it is a police job to do screenings if anyone is found suspicious regardless of race. Sharon and her group of friends soon later started commenting to one another saying things like “monkey, yalam(Malay) couldn’t think far and all. As all of us know, the job of a police officer is to keep our surrounding safe and buying things like number locks and all could lead to a miss event and police job is to actually prevent crimes.”
