At 6:30 yesterday morning, on upper Kowloon Motor Bus level, when an old man stood up from his seat in one of the back rows, an police officer posing as passengers riding along the bus to monitor for unusual activities discovered a seat slashed in one of the back rows. At interception for an investigation, police officer seized a 3 inches knife from the old man. Under questioning, old man acknowledged committing the crime and even admitted to slashing 24 other seats which was a case that police had no clue of and been investigating for the past 3 years due to cases involving different bus lines and crime occurrence, where seats on buses, especially lately on bus route 101 in the past 5 months, were slashed.

 

The old man by last name Lee, aged 78, was arrested and taken to a police station, who claimed that he had grievance against bus service including bus moving too slow and uncomfortable seats. Lee slashed different seats each time, each time vandalizing one to seven seats that all taken place on bus route 101, and most seats were vandalized on upper level. According to police, each bus seat costs 1000 HK dollars. Initial investigation revealed no mental illness history or criminal conviction on Lee. KMB had also never received any complaints from Lee.

what an interesting way to unleash his anger or dissatisfaction towards the bus service lol

didn't know that they have under cover police officers riding as passengers...who would have known that they actually needed that to monitor crimes on buses

well at least the old man wasn't violent..

Perhaps he's like a kid who's wanting attention from his family. We all know that elderly are usually neglected by their family over there .. everyone's too busy with their own life. I don't think he's mentally unstable.

 

Also, there are some people out there who are have the "urge" to steal even when they're rich .. it's just something that either they were conditioned or habit .. old habits die hard... lol

don't just say how crazy he is, we should find out at his age 78+, why and what cause him doing sth. like it - may be most of the old people don't get the care or attention from their relatives, therefore, try to do sth. to make people alert, using some other ways to get people attention.

always try to solve the base problems
