Home Team Restraint

Like a few others, I’m really impressed that the Singapore Police Force, under quite a bit of danger, what with an estimated 400 people involved, several cars flipped over and burned, did not fire a single shot (of either lethal rounds (metal jackets) or non-lethal rounds (rubber bullets) or teargas) in anger or in defence.

It would have been different  in any other jurisdiction. Good job, guys. That went a long way in diffusing the situation and not escalating it or causing more injuries.
