Aussie expat Troy Parry: I will not apologise because what I said still stands

Instead of apologizing to Singaporeans for hurting their feelings for his unwarranted outburst that Singaporeans who asked him if he has served National Service are all ‘MORONS’, Australian expatriate Troy Parry said he will stand by his words.
Parry has earlier chided Singaporeans to stop behaving like ‘babies’ prompting a sharp rebuke from a Singapore NSman Dennis Chua who asked him to ‘shut up’ if he did not serve National Service:
Dennis’ words touched a raw nerve on Parry who replied callously:
“Have you served National Service in Singapore?” <— that’s the only thing that SINGAPOREANS can ever retaliate with. What if I have? My opinion is still the same. What if a female made the same comment? MORONS…”
In a clarification posted on Facebook, Troy Parry insists that his words were taken out of context:
He also refused to apologize:
According to information posted on his linkedin account, Troy is currently working as an independent Information Technology and Services professional:
Mr Troy Parry who claimed he is now working in the Singapore Police Force, has since lodged several complaints to Facebook and Media Development Authority of Singapore to close down those Facebooks which dared to criticize him.
