Once upon a time only the hardcore criminals will dare to challenge the police force. Now every Yang, Muthu etc foreigner is not afraid to take on the police force. The fact that it happened shows the loopholes created by our law enforcement exploited by the criminals.There is nothing to celebrate here for the police force. You are just cleaning your own dog poo.

Such illicit and criminal activities have been ongoing for the longest time, and now they want to blow the trumpets for some “stage work”?

Sinkies must be nincompoops or dumb-heads.

In SG one cannot deny it’s always the lower ranks, lesser paid, lesser popularity gets the job done – the job of a price payer, a guilt bearer.

Spf , when are you going to catch your own officers vaping?

a show off?
to show the taxpayers,
they are not ONLY trained to handle oppos and dissentments.

When technically periodical checks and regular enforcements takes place in a scheduled time frame (flexibility at times to escape attention from opponents) frequently, there shdnt be any need for like what has happened, to nab these 10s of people.

It goes to DETERMINE CLEARLY there is A CLEAR ABSCENT of periodical checks.

2ndly that which did not surfaced – when LIFE IS GETTING TOUGHER, it’s LEGITIMATE for people to find ways and means to make more MONEY to SURVIVE to provide FOOD, MEDICAL CARE, for their family.
