This, is still, the “treatment”, NOT the “prevention” phase of things, from the Front Page Sections, translated…
Jie Cheng shocked the myth of how we can feel safe, and it’d also reminded the society of TWO problems that it needed to consider. First, the social responsibilities of the families of those who are mentally ill. Jie Cheng was, no doubt, a psychologically ill person, the man who stood up to him in the MRT trains said, “It was NOT a man before me, but a beast.” Most people would agree that this, was NOT libel or slander, even IF we were NOT there. Does he still have that Japanese video game card wrapped around his neck?
Jie Cheng’s parents weren’t the ones to blame at all, instead, we must wonder, why, did he, starting in the fifth grade wanted to kill his female classmate, and, how come until now, the parents still hadn’t discovered that there was a MONSTER living in their son’s soul? How come they’d never taken him to the hospitals for an examination and treatment?
The second question we must ponder on is: what responsibilities does the school he attends have in all of this?
The school after being notified, on the following day, sent the school officials to visit Cheng, even though, he was able to not get found out, but, the school still called in the therapy experts, it’s just that the investigations hadn’t even started, and Jie had gone up north, and committed this crime.
Jie Cheng’s claims on Facebook is his private issue; the igniting point was NOT the students or the instructors at his school; the place of the crimes, along with the victims, had nothing to do with the school. In the end, his antisocial personality that had escalated since he was a child, was NOT the responsibility of the universities either. Look! The high school he’d attended was trying to rebut too. But, since the events, the university had taken on such burdens of morality, and claimed publically, “Jie Cheng is our family”, it’s such an amazing feat!
Actually, Jie Cheng and his parents should say their apologies to the universities. But, Jie had already asked previously, “Why should I apologize?”
Can the higher education BE responsible for the moral education and character education of someone? This, is a difficult question.
And so, even though it was NOT their responsibility, after all, the guy DID act on his own free will here, the school still stepped up, and allowed itself to TAKE the blames, and that takes G-U-T-S!!!
