as in,

what are the chances in singapore,

1. someone owning firearms,

2. someone dumb enough to fire a shot in open air, while knowing it is illegal to even own a gun much less fire it...

and if u put 2 and 2 together,

what are the chances after those 2, that the terminal velocity blahblahblah will hit a person?!

come on, take a chill pill, watch the world cup instead.

It will not be a "terminal velocity" type... Most likely a small pebble falling.

And the occurence is lower than you being killed by killer litter in our every crowded HDB heartland.

Eh, I believe in a real incident report in the papers some days ago, a local cop did fire a warning shot. It was written that he fired it into the ground, so I guess that is much more logical.

I'm assuming it is a grass patch area and not cement :bsmilie: else there'd be some quick step dance moves LOL

Firing into the air is so old american cowboy cliche :bsmilie:

I think the firing in air and kill someone did happen in US and Brazil IIRC. Definitely read it in the papers.

For SAF, during guard duty, the practice is definitely NO WARNING SHOTS in air. 3 verbal warning and fire to disarm only. Anyway, i also don't watch local TV anymore. I think I've stopped for like close to 10years?

BTW, owning a firearm is confirm jail sentence (life I think) discharging a round whehter it hit anything/person is confirm death sentence.

Kinda curious too. Cos I remember when we're clearing our weapons after range, we point upwards at 45 degree just in case we have one in the chamber. :think:

some camps have sand pits or gun clearing pits for rilfes to be pointed at instead. I think SAF should implement this for all the ranges.

A lot of **** things happened in that drama would not have happened in a real-life police investigation.

For example, some of their interrogation tactics would have warranted a complaint. and Siwei's finding a bottle of cyanide[?] capsules in Liwen's place and using that as evidence to suspect her of Steve's murder [without possessing a search warrant for her place?] -> also sure kena investigation as to how he could do that.
