Have you read crime news of other countries?
Other than the Little India riot, which is a failing on SPF inspite of the low casuality, I dont think others could have been prevented.

Not only are our tax rates are low but our crime rates are far lower than most countries.

Every time I go on a holiday , it is a stark reminder of how safe Singapore is. It makes me very complacent. Just a couple of weeks ago when i had gone across the Causeway, a resident who I just stopped to ask for direction, chided me for wearing a gold chain, she warned me to cover it if it got late to return.

If anything, singapore is a little too safe .

Singapore certainly not as safe as it used to be.

A lot of crimes went unreported. A couple of years back, someone got stabbed in the neck while withdrawing money from atm. It was not reported in newspapers.

They are not strong as they used to be. Now they are weak. Maybe due to too many red tapes or their responsibilities have been pushed away.

I thought this thread was on sunscreen so I dropped by for a visit. :rotflmao:

Hardly see police presence. That could be a good thing. But they could play a more proactive role.

I thought that too. Since it is so hot these days, I was actually wondering if I should use a sun screen with higher spf and then saw this thread
