    Exclamation Riot police break up demonstration outside CPF building

    http://sg.news.yahoo.com/050811/1/3u60l.html

    Riot police broke up a rare demonstration by four people demanding greater transparency and accountability in Singapore's state-managed pension fund and other government-linked agencies.

    A dozen anti-riot police wearing helmets and knee-high protective gear and carrying shields and batons formed a phalanx outside the offices of the Central Provident Fund (CPF) as a commanding officer approached the demonstrators.

    "You are committing an offence of public nuisance in Clubsnap Kopitiam! If you don't disperse you will be arrested," the officer told the protesters as Photography people and members watched in the central web district.

    Thats true.... but police in other country handle protest differently. Like my friend go join demostration.... inside demostration got secret police... lure some of the pple away... then catch them and remand them for 1 day for causing public disorder...

    Singapore Singlish derived from too many "action hero" war movies. As in, "He cannot make it...", when the hero refers to the unfortunate dying movie extra who is scripted to be cannon fodder (see also "care le fair").

    Means a person is a complete failure.
