I know what’s the first thing you wanna ask, so I’m going to tell you first that I don’t know what his grades are.

Considering he is jailed and at the moment unemployed, we can guess his GPA isn’t that high or full of potential.

Just last week, we had a poly student who had at least 99 upskirt photos. In fact, that week alone also had a national bowler and a man from Yale-NUS committing heinous crimes.

If you plot a graph, you’ll see an exponential graph in the number of upskirts as time goes on. As the resident expert analyst on upskirt crimes, I predict that next week we’ll have someone getting caught at 321 Clementi taking upskirt videos with a stash of 3210 videos.

So anyway, about that ex-engineer.

Caught at [email protected] on 29 Nov 2017

Lincoln Tshe Kwok Ming, a 36-year-old currently unemployed ex-engineer, had been taking an upskirt video at the mall using his Samsung phone, by positioning it on his thigh, camera lens facing upwards. He did this by standing on the escalator behind a woman and her friend.

Fortunately for the woman, her friend confronted Tshe over the video, asked to look at it and found the exact upskirt footages.

Police were alerted, and then arrested Tshe.

Crime caught in action, slap on the wrist donezo, right?

Not quite, because he…

Admitted To Taking Upskirt Videos Since 2011

As it turns out, the 211 videos in this case, which consisted of upskirts and in changing rooms at [email protected], Bugis+ and Junction 8 shopping malls, were taken from February 2016 to the November 2017.

Huh, so what about the “since 2011”?

Do you have a friend who has a fake life on Instagram? This would explain why they're living the "Instagram Life": (Also remember to follow us on Instagram!)


You see, the older videos taken before that are not the subject of charges in this case. That is to say, his sentencing here only takes into account the 211 videos from 2016 to 2017.

Does that mean there’s an unknown number of videos that we don’t know about? The older videos were stored in a computer in his storeroom, and the newer ones in his study room computer. Copies of newer videos are also in his hard disk.

It’s not really clear why the older videos are not taken into account here, and it’s also not stated in court documents how he filmed the victims in the changing room.

Sentenced To 33 Weeks Jail on 4 Oct 2019

He pleaded guilty to 10 counts of insulting a woman’s modesty. The sentencing takes into consideration 201 other charges.

Here’s something slightly more interesting: Tshe’s lawyers claim that he suffered from paraphilic disorder and persistent depressive disorder. They sought 12 weeks’ jail, while the prosecutor asked for nine months.

A persistent depressive disorder is basically depression, so that’s pretty easy to understand.

But simi is paraphilic disorder? 

From Wikipedia, it’s “sexual interests in objects, situations, or individuals that are atypical”, and browsing the list of paraphilias includes things like an erotic interest in archery (?), children or specific inanimate objects (??).

Isn’t sexual interest in upskirt pretty… normal?

Am… am I a pervert?
