    Riot Police would be using rubber bullets which leaves you with painful bruises. The distant and force is not as powerful or lethal like actual live rounds and stray rounds will not ricochet with as much force unless you are in the range of the rioters which if you are not involve, you should be staying away from them and not kapo too close. And usually the police shooters will not be taking out rioters who go outside the group and take shelter behind general non involving people but well accidents do happens in the heat of operation but at least non live rounds are used. For live rounds to be used I would guess is when the situation has escalate so high that it calls for this.

    Firing warning shot can be done with a gun loaded with rubber bullets. Police are not allow to any how just take out their revolver and fire warning shot into the air for no reason unless he want to be charged for illegal live round discharge. Special permission has to be given. This is not Hollywood. This is at least what I am taught during my Police NS and doing my time with the Riot Police Unit.

    They said not even a warning shot.

    The comment is on the effect of the Commssioner's words on the constables, when they face all other crime situations where life and death risk requires split second reaction without hesitation.
    And when the news spreads that SG police were using guns, the 400 will quickly turn into 40,000 and it's an all-out race war. Your "idea" is based on your own fear. You are only brave at your keyboard and just enjoy your speculations.

    It's clear you should stop being a keyboard warrior and actually get some experience / common sense.

    Sad incident ... Hmmm ... part of the "social cost" for the current population policy?

    Nope. We had riots here even before the current gov't, the current policies, etc. Stop trying to turn it into some political agenda.

    So far the facts. Based on similar events around the world and their outcome (you have it all at your fingertips) I think this was the best thing that they have done. Bruises and cuts will heal, cars can be replaced. But once a riot gets out of control there is more to lose. A single bullet is enough.
    May I remind you on an incident that happened some years ago: a guy with a knife was running wild in one of the downtown MRT stations (City Hall?). The police was called and the officer approaching the guy on the platform level (underground!) did not use the same approach as in Little India. He just pulled the trigger and shot him down. Do you recall the outcry, the demanding questions where weaponless fight skills and common sense have been when firing in an underground facility? A baton is longer than a knife. Now, think again about your senseless call for weapons use.

    These are just your own interpretations, go easy on that part. We all know that the government and its servant love to praise themselves, sometimes a bit over the top. Let it be, it's just words.
    Fact is, the riot got dissolved and the damages are limited. Now it's clean up time to see what actually went wrong.

    Please have a closer look at the population groups affected by those policies and the groups involved in the events in LI. Completely different.

    I think you put it very mildly. We all enjoy the fruits of cheap labour.

    Hose 'em down with water cannon from firetrucks is painful enough. Not to mention cold water has that sobering effect.
