The response from the law enforcers was swift, but instead of deadly assault or disorderly behavior, one female combatant was charged with using abusive language and voluntarily causing hurt to two female police officers who responded to the punch up. Apparently it's a more heinous offence to upset the mata-mata, than to injure a very old woman. It gets to the point where one wonders what is more laughable, the plot lines in the tv serial of the same name, or the situation in real life.
Was it a fortnight ago, when we learnt about the super duper car that the police decided to treat themselves to? The one with the specifications for onboard video and sound system to match, and GPS navigation for assistance when they can't locate the place where help is needed? Roadside sign boards are sprouting all over residential areas in our peaceful tropical island paradise, detailing house break-ins and requesting witnesses to come forward. Instead of patrolling the crime infested areas, on foot or on bicycles, they are probably waiting for the spiffy vehicle to cruise the neighborhood in. When did the police start getting so pampered?
