Protecting public health.
This after it was revealed that more than 200 lion dance troupe members who are noisy have been culled this past Chinese New Year to eliminate noise as they keep banging on drums and cymbals.
One Singaporean, Sha Diao Ta, said: “This is a good start to show that Singapore is not about to give in to noise.”
“Noise is what people who are anti-establishment depend on to get attention.”
Other locals said culling might only be a temporary solution.
Another local, Hor Yee See, said: “Culling must be carried out in public from now on and made into a spectacle to warn others that noise will not be tolerated.”
“This will stop noisy people from interbreeding with quiet people.”
