They are running clandestine program to drive people to the point of extremes.Check out these workers who travel to and fro with luggage in your hdb unit.These people are paid harrassers backed with high technology provided by intelligence agencies.Obviously their names are not registered to the unit but they are paid to work in hdb unit as a harrasser.The victims are usually wrongfully put on a watchlist based on bogus assumptions.

Don’t tell me this PAP Administration has ZERO to do with all these recent many suicides? Well it’s only conjecture – but truth is the reality is such incidents are too plenty to say it’s people’s unfortunate actions. Big Balls. Look at causes and effects. Misfortune don’t strike at random.

Condolences to the family. Please be open about the profile of the deceased , as the nos. of suicides increase, we should make efforts as a community to be able to recognise the suicide tendencies in individuals and perhaps be able to assist in any way possible. I do not see this being done by the authorities who quickly shut down any news on suicides.
