Silly Peeping Tom

It was reported today in the The Straits Times that a trainee doctor had tried to film a female nurse in the shower. What in the world is is thinking of?! He was about to finish his housemanship, with a bright future waiting for him. Why did he want to commit such an offence? And he paid the lady $5000 to shut up? Is he just being irrational or stupid?

Why didn't he think of the consequences he would face in the first place? Did he thought he would get away with it? Maybe the first time, if he was lucky, but the law would eventually catch up with him. Does this case display that kinda "I'm-high-up-there-and-can-get-away-with-anything" attitude? I don't know.

As what I learnt about utilitarianism from the Values and Cultures module, if only he could defer the "pleasure" of peeping at others, going through the pain of not getting the see someone's naked body, he could have completed his housemanship and have a very bright future, which is a bigger "pleasure". Why didn't he do that?

If he's so despo and willing to fork out some money, Geylang cheaper... And doing such a thing is their "job" and they are "willing" to, admist all kinds of circumstances, they might be "forced" to do so. The poor lady is not a prostitute, she does not want money, she wants justice. Seeing someone's naked body or touching him/her without his/her permission and against his/her will is my definition of "outrage of modesty".

Really lah, what the fuck is he thinking of? Sigh... You may have superb grades, study medicine, doing housemanship now, so maybe clever... But commiting an offence and ruin your future, not very clever lor...

I definately agree that there are black sheeps. Black sheeps exist everywhere in any kind of community. However, these black sheeps cause harm to the community.

In the past, there were also cases reported that female patients were molested by male doctors. But when we are really sick, we have no choice but to go to the nearest clinic instead of finding a female doc. When you're really sick, as long as can find doc to give you medicine, definately take mah...

Docs are meant to save lifes, and we believe n trust them for that. They should not betray our trust...
