    these people know our SPF will not pull out their baton or gun….they know the police won’t hurt them….cos need to write report if they are hurt…lol

    Our SPF is seriously full of Guniang… they have no trouble putting handcuffs on little kids (go google it) but they always seems to have problem bringing down a lone man (airport,amk) or a group of men (little india)

    I wonder if they will fall if the wind is too strong.

    This is the second case of SPF officers struggling to bring down and subdue an unarmed man. The other was iat AMK a few weeks ago when a few officers were injured. Think for police officers, size count. Many of our officers are of small build, I am quite worry when they need to handle burly looking guys esprcially when they have one too many at the pub. Maybe SPF should into this aspect during their next recruitment exercise.

      The truth is the new job retirement age was 5, 10 years later and working hours was regular. That was the reasons for not applying again.

      When SPF was building up it forces after independent, I did apply for a post in 1968. Unfortunately I fell sick and missed the interview. When I recovered I got another job and I didn’t follow up on it any further.
