When Push Comes To Shove

A cursory glance gives one the impression that it was just another scene from the Great Singapore Sale.
"Gimme that! I saw it first!"

"No way, sister, we saw it first!"

When push comes to shove...

Oopsy daisy!

Exit, stage right.

"Security! Security! Don't let her get away!"

Alas, no, it happened to be another of those 47 riots that Iswaran told parliament house is fast becoming a recurring event in the Lion City. According to Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law K Shanmugam, the police officers on the ground were trying to do their job, which apparently does not include rendering assistance to fallen womenfolk. If police officers misbehave, he said, they should be disciplined, but everybody else gets arrested and thrown into the lock-up.

  1. Let's hope our Singaporean Hindus can draw the "correct" conclusions and vote accordingly.
    I wonder if Iswaran is a Hindu?

  2. Did the plainclothes policemen identify themselves before taking physical action to arrest Singaporeans?

    1. If cops are called 'Pigs' then what are undercover cops called?
      Pigs in a blanket.

  3. There was mention that someone smelled alcohol. So this fracas in the afternoon was induced by alcohol like the Little India Riot? Looks like they have to ban alcohol 24/7, methinks.

  4. Iswaran - The use of music during procession has been banned since 1973.
    Shanmugam - All religious processions on foot have been banned since 1964.
    How far back into history will these guys go into to justify the incompetence of the police?

    1. Trouble always start when the SPF step in to enforce laws or rules that are discriminatory, stupid, self-serving......or politicised. If you want justice, VTO.

  7. after the SPF lost face in the Little India riot they are going to err on the side of caution. Therefore use overwhelming force at the slightest sign of disorder. They will simply enforce laws and not care too much about PR.

  8. SPF has a lot to catch up in terms of crowd control and man management. Police must remember we are now in a IT age where info is spreading seconds after an event. The image of a citizen (lady) being pushed to the ground and no action from the officers to lend a hand speaks negative of the force.
