    I wish all police, firemen and paramedics whom were injured while carrying out their duty last night a speedy recovery.

    Saw a clip where a fire engine was scrambling to get out of mobs' way. Its reversed into a police car and kept going until it broke free. I can't even imagine how daunting it was for them.

    Well said. Difference in opinion is dangerous in Singapore. WE should all agree. WE SHOULD ALL STOP THINKING OR RELY on authorities to think for us

    No need to think critically
    No need to have opinions
    No need to do anything even when we see crimes happening.

    No need to use our brain cause all explanation will be provided.

    As i mentioned, most of these FW are here to make a living for their loved ones. I doubt they would like to stir big for no reason. In the end they would be the one suffer most.

    It is a deep-rooted problem. Gov and we should not just point fingers and unleash their whips when fire broke out just to show that they can fight fire. They should be thinking of how to prevent a fire instead.

    I'd send couple of natural disaster there to keep population in the sim city in check. Besides, that will also reveal the weakness of my positioning of fire stations, police and other emergency facilities.

    Hv to be less myopic too. Dont just bring in FT and then ignore the consequences.
    Agree.

    For decades Singaporeans have lived under this legal requirement.

    Time to enforce this again.

    A few months ago in India, a train rammed some idiots sitting on the train tracks. The train driver made the stupid mistake of stopping. He got lynched.

    The fact remains is that most of these workers here come from a place where the law does not exist. They are not used to our cultural norms. They are also more protective of their own kind than we are. (I think 99% of Singaporeans will utterly bochup if one of our own got knocked down.) Throw in other grievances that have been simmering for ages (poor lodging, poor treatment, bad pay etc. etc.), everything you need for a civil revolt is there waiting to happen.

    Hahaha... Shall we ban the *** for having that party convention recently? Honestly, I will put it bluntly: No amount of lawyering will change a problem that is more fundamental than mere lawyering. Singaporeans must stop running to the bloody government to make some stupid law because of a stupid problem that could have been solved if people bother to take initiative to solve a stupid problem. Grow a spine and brain people.

    I one person how to replace 400 indians? Anyway 27 already arrested and the rest is likely to be deported if they are not going to Sentosa.

    After they lose their pants they will have to go back being construction workers. In the meantime, the Chinese will do the work.

    ya, just like they said for a plane to crash, you would need more than one factors/causes/failures etc?

    Since we are aware of this shortcoming, mitigation actions shd hv been implemented. eg gov could hv installed more pedestrian crossings. Once i was trying to cross that stretch of road and hv to walk quite a distance to reach one. And for one who used to ignore law, they would not hv the patience to walk that far.
