Today 10.25am an NTU lecturer was stabbed by a student who then committed suicide. It appeared on ChannelNewsAsia headline saying 'one injured one dead in NTU stabbing'.
The weird thing is, when students read the news, everyone was laughing and feeling excited and taking pictures of the TV screen. When I went back to my Psy lab, more people started discussing about it, with lots of laughter and jokes about the event.
I don't understand, don't they feel shocked about the stabbing? Don't they feel concerned about the students' behaviour? Why instead of words of concerns, what I hear, from girls, from guys, from Chinese, from Caucasians, are all smiles?
I almost thought it was a joke.
