    maybe i'm wrong

    i not lawyer, and i not PO, can PO explain why such case can happens? if the explanation is not acceptable by public then what will happen?
    just walk away like the romanian??

    then the po who was handcuff happy will no loner be happy anymore
    anyway i think there a clash of ego (emphasize i think),
    1. PO asked photog to beat it
    2. Photog felt it was within his right to shoot (the flood, not the PO)
    3. PO felt authority wa challenged
    4. Out come the handcuffs

    And we have an interesting thread

    If you are making this example to compare with this photographer case, i think it sounds really stupid

    One more thing to add, if PO can handcuff anyone one the street when they think they like to handcuff, what is the court of law and warrant to arrest for????
    police handcuff ppl, search or detaint private properties only when they get warrant from court. And they need to apply it with valid reason, cannot simply just arrest wor.
    If singapore PO is so powerful, when i think can do away with the court liao, why nwaste tax payer $

    The case in question is a reference but if you chosed not to believe the explanation given, then I guess you would turn a blind eye to history as well...

    I don't see what the pg has done wrong. He wasn't a threat to public safety or anything

    so the photog was in imminent danger to himself and the stranded cars in the longkang and the police surveying the scene because the flood water was receding

    I am sure all of us know how presistence a journalist can be in getting the scope photo. The journalist could put his own life in danger (or others) by going forward to take the shot. The police warned him to stay away. I can only guess that the journalist did not heel the warning but presisted and was handcuffed for causing obstruction to a public servant. The used of a handcuff does not mean that a person is under arrest. It can be use as a temporary restrain measure to prevent that person from causing injury to himself/herself or to others.
    i think it is only valid if the policeman did say that the location that the journalist stand is already standing is dangerous, and that the location he is standing is indeed dangerous.

    in the first place, the "duty" need be be valid.

    according to article, the PO was in his car before the incident instead of diverting traffic (it was not even heavy traffic according to the pictures)..so what duty was the PO doing?

    WTH! The BUS Driver speeding, Nearly hit him!
    This is bad. Speeding is already serious offence furthermore it is flooding, the driver can lose control easily and what if the brake failed. No wonder there are so many bus accidents.

    erm... can let us know why the police did not handcuff the guy who took the video (maybe because shame Singapore Orchard Road on YouTube a short while before YOG), hand cuff the guy waving his hands in the middle of the road (reason - for his safety...from the reckless sbs bus) and also hand cuff the bus driver for speeding and nearly mowing down a person on the street.
