Thumbs down Alex Ong, the young man who pushed an old lady of a bus, tells his Story

25 year old Alex Ong pushes an old woman out of the bus after she pisses him off by pressing the bell late. Alex claims he suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, clinical depression and autism-spectrum disorder. He says his anger stemmed from incidents that happened earlier in his life.

So, where do I start?
Do I start from the very beginning, or do I start from the reason why Iím writing this in the first place?
Perhaps I should start with the reason why I started this blog, since I suspect most of you will be directed here after reading press reports of the incident that triggered this.
Let me fill you in on my side of the story.

I have been trying to find a proper, stable job for over half-a-year now. My previous job was as a temporary admin at Informatics, a job that sucked hard, with disgustingly long hours, disgusting environment, disgusting pay, and a disgusting commute. I hated it, and I swore to myself not to take such jobs ever again. Unfortunately, my choice is limited - I will explain why at a later time - and this has been frustrating me, along with other matters I will explain later.
Fast-forward to 5th of June, this year.

I was going to Dhoby Ghaut by bus from my home in Sembawang to get something fixed. At Thomson, this old lady pressed the stop bell at the last minute, to which I told her not to the next time.
She just simply and suddenly shouted back at me for that.

no excuse. instead of 1/2 a minute late for appointment, he quarelled for at least 2-3 mins and then got to spent more time making up stories and apologising all over the net.

plain stupid.

Everyone has their own story and frustrations,
but to take it out in that way is no excuse.....neither.
Maybe she is old and forgot to press the bell and didn't see the stop properly,
did you think about that before jumping up and telling the old lady off?
Who are u? The bus traffic police?

If everyone starts being mean and horrible and turn violet and turn around to say
he/she has a bad day..it's going to be horrible place to be around.

Good that he apologised in the end, but still no excuses.

The woman is too kind to accept his apology.
Who the f**k he think he is.
So what if he has whatever history or illness, whatever he claim.
He can only blame himself for being useless and not take it out on an old lady.

No one is interested in his sad story.

Seriously people should stop giving excuses, simi depression, OCD lah. If you are mad, please check yourself into a mental institution.

Frankly, I can understand. Bad day, bad month, bad year. Stuff builds up. **** can happen to anyone.

However, that doesn't excuse anyone from such behaviour. If tons of **** happened to me, I push old lady, I deserve all the resultant flak too.

I'd go up and kick AO in the nuts, then tell him that I had a bad year. So I can be excused?

so what are u trying to say? becos aunties are slow aunties complaint, we can be physically abuse them?

if aunties complaint about crowded or big bags, just tell her she so yaya then go take cab, no need to cramp with peasants in a bus. if u cant defend urself in the proper manner then dun whine.

i encounter one at hospital oso, telling the family members of other patients to get lost. the other group just told her the same thing, u so yaya go stay in first class bed. nobody will disturb u.

He might as well add in more psychological problems and conditions in his explanation.

To most of us, he is just a screwed up fella who pushed an old lady off the bus disregarding his motives, this is so wrong....

I hope he gets charged

Edit to add: Mental conditions should not be used as an excuse to physically harm someone. If it is really the reason of him pushing someone down the bus, if he is still human, he should check himself into IMH to prevent further harm to public. And OCD is NOT violent.
