Three thoughts you must have had.

Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam said he would be making a police report against the blog, States Times Review, for an Oct. 21 article that attributed comments to him that he didn’t make.

The Government is also looking into whether to take further action against the website, a separate post on government website Factually said.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “When my friend went for the Singapore Police Force career talk, he was assured the profession would be rewarding and aspirational.”
Zuo Jing Cha, 43-year-old security guard

 

sian-half-uncle “I never thought I’d see the day the Law Minister himself having to call the police.”
Bao Jing, 68-year-old phone repairman

 

happy-bird-girl “This really shows there is nothing the Singapore Police Force cannot handle. Thank you men in blue.”
Luan Luan Lai, 17-year-old juvenile delinquent

Here are some of the no-nos in general.

singapore-police-lady

Recently, the Singapore Police Force has been in the media quite a bit.

Reports of them showing up unannounced and taking people — who can be minors — away for questioning has resulted in the general public getting twitchy.

To get you mentally accustomed to the idea you or someone you know could be next, here is a list of things to keep in mind in the event the Singapore police does show up at your doorstep one fine evening asking for you.

But that’s just assuming you have enough common sense to react calmly in the face of the police, especially when your mother is crying hysterically and your father has collapsed on the floor as he is now certain there is a criminal in the family tree.

 

Therefore, here is a list of 10 things one should never, ever do when the police shows up at your door unannounced:

1. Try to grab their revolver.

2. Open the door, close the door slowly, turn off the lights, squat down and pretend no one’s home.

3. Admit you were an accomplice in that case in Singapore last time where the ang moh guy killed another guy and dismembered him.

4. Say, “This is Minority Report, right? You’re arresting me for a crime that I will commit in the future?”

5. Say, “I didn’t call for strippers.”

6. Ask, “Eh McDonald’s delivery change uniform?”

7. Take out your student concession pass and shout: “CID! CID! I also CID!”

8. Call the police: “Hello? Police? Got police harassing me. Come quick.”

9. Ask, “Is this how I appear on Crime Watch?”

10. Push the gate open. And make a run for it.

 

 

 

 

 











S’poreans dimiss Amos Yee as lousy rebel, gets arrested for writing blog posts instead of committing real atrocities

This puts Singapore in a bad light as it shows we cannot even groom proper anarchists.

amos-yee-ge

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have a low tolerance for all things second-best, have come out to dismiss teenager Amos Yee as a lousy rebel and ineffective anarchist.

This after the 17-year-old teen was picked up by the police for investigation for the second time as he had allegedly made religiously insensitive remarks online again.

One Singaporean, Mei You Yong, said this makes Amos Yee not very good at being rebellious: “In other countries, rebels will take on more dominant forces on the streets day and night and commit atrocities such as beheading and fight tooth and nail for small gains.”

“Amos Yee, on the other hand, can’t even do anything truly rebellious but just write things online that nobody reads and still get called in by the police.”

“He is not even a seventh-rate rebel at best.”

“On a scale of one to 10 for rebelliousness, this is like a minus 17.”

Other Singaporeans said Amos Yee’s faux-rebelliousness will only serve to put Singapore in a bad light internationally as it shows the world we once again lack local talent and cannot even nurture truly rebellious anarchists who know how to properly raise hell in society.

Jin Boh Yong, another local, said: “Little bit, little bit, get arrested already.”

“It seems like we cannot even do something more major to show the world we have what it takes to be the best on the global stage.”

“There is really a problem with local talent.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

amos-yee-one-piece-suit-cropped

Amos Yee, the 17-year-old teen who was previously arrested for making religiously insensitive remarks online, has confirmed via his Facebook page that he was picked up by the police for investigation again.

It is believed his latest brush with the authorities stems from one of his latest blog posts on Nov. 27, where Yee made reference to a Singaporean man with a blue tick beside his name and Islam.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Amos Yee’s plan to avoid National Service is really coming together.”
Hock Kian Peng, 44-year-old Singapore Armed Forces regular

 

sian-half-uncle “Makes you wonder why the Singaporean man with a blue tick beside his name hasn’t been arrested yet.”
Jing Cha Ju, 62-year-old security guard

 

happy-bird-girl “This is the reality of joining the police force as a full-timer. Interrogating teenagers about what they blog about.”
Zuo Gong, 17-year-old part-time blogger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 











S’poreans yearn for the days when people can earn a living without shooting another person to death

Gun violence increased by 100 percent overnight.

shangri-la-hotel

One day after the fatal shooting of a suspected drug trafficker by the police near Shangri-La Hotel, Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have spent their mollycoddled existence feeling safe and secure like fluffy cotton candy in plastic packaging, have come out to express their desire to go back to the days where people can earn a living without shooting another person to death.

One such Singaporean, Hor Yee See, said: “This shooting really marks a turning point in Singapore’s history as gun violence inexplicably increased by 100 percent overnight.”

“I really hope to see the day when Singaporeans can earn a living and go to work without having to pull out a revolver and squeeze one out.”

“May the remainder of this year be a period of intense national soul-searching. Let the healing begin.”

Other Singaporeans said the glory days of non-gun violence was between 2008 and 2015 when the last time the police had to open fire was seven years ago, which involved a knife-wielding man who continued to advance on an officer at Outram Park MRT station.

Another Singaporean, Xiang Bu Kai, said: “Something must have been going on in those last seven years for things to take a turn for the worst like this.”

“Our society needs to work hard together to bring down this level of gun violence to its lowest possible level again, or else, I cannot imagine how the police must show up to work everyday thinking, ‘This might just be the day I have to use my weapon’.”

“Because the first thing he should really consider using is his baton to non-fatally beat the daylights out of anyone to control the situation, so that he doesn’t have to live with the moral implications of having to kill someone just to bring home the bacon.”

“But it’s a cool story to be able to tell your kids and friends, like, ‘Hey, I shot someone in the first before’.”

#SLD15: Our reporter Pichayada Promchertchoo updates us on the scene near Shangri-La hotel after an incident this morning led police to shoot dead one person; 2 others were detained. http://bit.ly/1HW6tEp

Posted by Channel NewsAsia Singapore on Saturday, May 30, 2015

 

A man was shot dead and two others were detained in an incident at 4.36 am on Sunday near the Shangri-La hotel, where the ongoing Shangri-La Dialogue is being held. This after the driver suddenly accelerated the vehicle crashing through police barricades towards Anderson Road after being asked to open the car boot for checks.

Substances believed to be drugs were later found on one of the persons detained.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “The suspected drug traffickers should have read the newspapers about Shangri-La Dialogue, planned ahead and taken a different route.”
Hor Yee See, 49-year-old coffee shop assistant

 

sian-half-uncle “The reporter is kind of cute.”

Arrest reporters for abetting crime as they failed to chase after Amos Yee attacker

Arrest reporters for abetting crime as they failed to chase after Amos Yee attacker

If they saw a woman get molested, will they also not act?

amos-slapped

Singaporeans from all walks of life who enjoy feeling self-righteous have called on the authorities to arrest the reporters on the scene outside the State Court where teenager Amos Yee was slapped by a man in a red shirt.

This after the incident was caught on camera by various members of the media and it showed none of the reporters on the scene who witnessed what happened assist Yee by giving chase after his assailant.

One Singaporean, Sai Ji Pah, said: “If the reporters saw a woman get molested, will they also not chase after the perpetrator of the act?”

“There seems to be a clear double standard applied here. The reporters’ inaction in the face of assault is tantamount to abetting a crime.”

“Their behaviour is unlike the actions of foreign workers in Singapore who would step in to help at any given moment.”

“This is also an example of what our world class education system has failed to inculcate: Moral responsibility.”

“The Bystander Effect is strong with this one.”

Singapore has failed all Singaporeans again.

thaipusam-arrests

 

Three men, aged between 28 and 33, arrested for rowdy behaviour at the annual Thaipusam procession on Tuesday, were said to have smelt of alcohol, according to the Singapore Police who revealed the details only a day later in a Facebook post on Feb. 4, 2015.

Their arrests came after the scuffle they were in ended with a policemen sent to hospital.

Police said its officers were sent to the junction of Serangoon Road and Desker Road at about 6:50pm that day, after a group there insisted on playing drums during Thaipusam, which was a natural thing to do during a ritual procession.

A law enforcement analyst said this incident clearly shows a failure of legislation to deal with the drinking problem in Singapore, that looks likely to spread island-wide as alcohol consumption is increasingly getting pushed underground.

Leah Pai Lang, a man who was drinking beer at the coffee shop, said: “The government has failed the citizenry again by not doing enough to stop people from drinking. These arrests clearly shows that there has been a complete failure to use a bigger sledgehammer to kill a fly.”

These arrests has come under the intense spotlight as they follow hot on the heels of legislation that had just been passed in parliament last week to ban the public consumption of alcohol after 10.30pm.

However, other Singaporeans had different interpretations of the arrests.

One local, Jiang Dao Li, said the arrests wouldn’t have happened if other factors were factored in: “The three men who were arrested wouldn’t have clashed with the police if the police weren’t there.”

Another local, Jiang Zhen De, concurred: “If there was no police, then there wouldn’t have been anyone to arrest the three men.”

“And then there wouldn’t have been any news of anyone smelling like alcohol.”

Woman’s true love’s kiss saves S’porean police officer from eternal curse of cardboard existence

Woman’s true love’s kiss saves S’porean police officer from eternal curse of cardboard existence

Tags: ,


Story is empowering as it subverts notion that it must always be the man who saves the woman.

police-singapore-cardboard

A Singaporean woman rescued a police officer from becoming a cardboard standee for the rest of eternity.

This was after she broke the three-year-old curse by kissing the cardboard standee on the mouth as she thought it would be kind of cute to take a selfie of that, slap on a filter and put it on Instagram.

Little did she realise that her thoughtless action of one-way transfer of bodily fluids was the key to break the spell that was put on the police officer by his superiors, who felt that he was a threat as he was on a fast-track promotion in the police force since graduating from the police academy in 2012.

The local woman, Hen Ai Ni, said she kissed the cardboard standee spontaneously as it was a very Gen-Z thing to do these days: “I was shy but I thought I should do what my heart leads me.”

However, eye-witnesses who saw her plant the kiss said the woman was clearly standing around suspiciously for more than 20 minutes waiting for the coast to be clear and her actions indicated she must have planned the spontaneous kiss for at least a week before executing it.

But not that it matters to the man she rescued with her selfless display of affection.

The police officer in question, Senior Station Inspector, Baima Wang Zi, said he is forever grateful for the woman’s actions as she sacrificed her dignity to do something as extreme as subvert the cultural societal norms by being the one to make the first move and take the initiative.

Wang said: “If this task of taking the initiative to kiss a man, just because she felt like it, was left to other Singaporean women, I would have been a cardboard standee for the rest of eternity till the sun burnt itself out 5 billion years from now.”

He also said he immediately knew she was The One when she kissed him: “It had been quite difficult to get hard down there when you have been two-dimensional.”

The pair wasted no time in entering into congress.

Here are some of the no-nos in general.

singapore-police-lady

You might have read recently that the Singapore police allegedly went around in the night to personally deliver notice letters asking some individuals to assist in investigations relating to the Return Our CPF protest at Hong Lim Park on Sept. 27, 2014.

This caused quite a bit of a hoo-ha because police should be out catching thieves instead of doing DHL services.

As a result, some have even gone through all the bother to come up with a list of things one should do in preparation if the Singapore police does show up at your doorstep one fine evening.

But that’s just assuming you have enough common sense to react calmly in the face of the police, especially when your mother is crying hysterically and your father has collapsed on the floor as he is now certain there is a criminal in the family tree.

 

Therefore, here is a list of 10 things one should never, ever do when the police shows up at your door unannounced:

1. Try to grab their revolver.

2. Open the door, close the door slowly, turn off the lights, squat down and pretend no one’s home.

3. Admit you were an accomplice in that case in Singapore last time where the ang moh guy killed another guy and dismembered him.

4. Say, “This is Minority Report, right? You’re arresting me for a crime that I will commit in the future?”

5. Say, “I didn’t call for strippers.”

6. Ask, “Eh McDonald’s delivery change uniform?”

7. Take out your student concession pass and shout: “CID! CID! I also CID!”

8. Call the police: “Hello? Police? Got police harassing me. Come quick.”

9. Ask, “Is this how I appear on Crime Watch?”

10. Push the gate open. And make a run for it.

The fear of an exposed rear is real.

little-india-usual

Singaporeans from all walks of life in varying states of undress are cowering in fear.

This after it was announced that the Singapore police has been given the go-ahead to strip search any person suspected of carrying alcohol within the vicinity of Little India.

One frightened Singaporean, Jin Kia See, said: “Later what if got exhibitionists purposely hide a bottle of alcohol in their backside and taunt the police to strip search him?”

“Then wouldn’t Little India attract all the exhibitionists who want other people to see them never wear clothes?”

Other locals interviewed said there are other reasons why it is untenable to strip search people these days.

Boh Cheng Sah, a local, said: “What if they strip already they aroused, how?”

“Then wouldn’t there be sexual corruption?”

Recently, some Catholics got pissed that a planned party at CHIJMES would provocatively use girls in nun’s habits as part of the proceedings, promising a “sacrilegious night of partying”.

Some ended up calling the police alleging that the organizers had violated the Sedition Act (one of them is a law student. Surprised?).

I’ve been observing people’s reactions to the situation for a little while, and to be honest, I’m about ready to slit my throat and recite the Hail Mary prayer right now.

Not literally, of course.

S’pore Police warns against attending Occupy Raffles Place protest

S’pore Police warns against attending Occupy Raffles Place protest

Tags: , , ,


But the anonymous organiser insists the leaderless movement will carry on as planned this weekend.

The Singapore police has issued a warning to anyone planning to attend a demonstration in the city-state’s financial district this weekend that their involvement would be deemed “unlawful” and they are advised “not to be misled” into participating in an unlawful activity.

The anonymous organiser of the Occupy Wall Street-style demonstration in the Central Business District this weekend said the demonstration would include a march to the Singapore Exchange building.

Police action is not unexpected as Singapore has always been heavy-handed when it comes to public protests, with organisers required to apply with the police for a permit.

Permits are mostly rejected by the authorities, owing to reasons pertaining to law and order risks

However, to minimise doubts that this leaderless protest is set to continue, a Facebook posting on the Occupy Singapore Facebook page at 11 a.m. on Oct. 14 read: POLICE TRYING TO SHUT US DOWN! WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN. THE OCCUPY RAFFLES PLACE MOVEMENT IS GROWING. STAND WITH US AT 2 PM TOMORROW TO DEFEND YOUR FUTURE.

“#OccupyRafflesPlace is still happening!” proclaimed another earlier post.

The police said in a statement: “Police received reports that a netizen is instigating the public to stage a protest gathering at Raffles Place on Saturday, 15 October 2011 in support of a similar protest action in New York”.

“Police urge members of the public not to be misled and participate in an unlawful activity.”

It is unclear who is behind the call for the mass action, which exhorted would-be participants to bring placards, musical instruments and other devices to “make as much noise as possible”.

But the organiser also urged protesters to refrain from violence and not to bring political party or trade union banners, drugs or alcohol.

“We are occupying Singapore’s Central Business Districts to demand accountability and change,” said the Facebook posting, which also criticised state-linked investment firms Temasek Holdings and the Government of Singapore Investment Corp.

A Facebook community site set up by the anonymous organiser with no political affiliation, received 272 “likes” so far at this time of posting.

The Occupy Wall Street protests in the US were launched on Sept. 7 by Americans protesting “greed” in the country’s financial district.
