SINGAPORE - A man went on an angry rant against another person at Northpoint Library, bringing up army ranks and university grades in the process.
Daniel, a contributor to citizen journalism site Stomp, came across the video that was filmed by Shelly Ong and ZYC.
In the video, the man in a red T-shirt can be seen engaged in an argument with another visitor at the library. The incident apparently started when the latter placed his tablet on the wrong side of the table and touched the man's stuff.
During the dispute, the man asked for the other party's army location and also told him of his own position. He continued hurling vulgarities despite being approached by a staff member of the library.
He later asked the other party to punch him but the latter said, "Don't dare me, I will not do it. Do you think I'm stupid?"
The man added that he was 40 years old and hence more experienced than the "20-year-old punk."
The Singapore Army has clarified that the man in red is not a member of the Singapore Armed Forces, nor has he served in the Commandos as claimed.
On their Facebook page, they wrote:
"A number of people have messaged us regarding a video about a person claiming to be from 'Commando Special Forces counter-terrorist plains clothes.'
"Thank you for your concern. We have identified the person in question; and wish to clarify that he is not a member of the SAF nor has he served in the Commandos. He currently has no NS liability."
