No need to change Hong Lim Park rules
The govt is opportunistically using the hooliganish behaviour (as evidenced by Yahoo, and ToC’s videos) of Roy, Han Hui Hui and gang (even Dr Chee, once Mad Dog Chee until he underwent treatment, and TOC say they were wrong to disrupt the YMCA’s event) to suggest that changes to the rules are in order and are being planned. It would say this wouldn’t it? Anything to make it more difficult for S’poreans to voice their dissent and unhappiness with govt policies.
There is really no need to make changes.Roy, New Citizen Han Hui Hui and friends are exceptions to the rule that S’poreans are respectful of others in public. In fact, we are too respectful of others in public. But as overnight litter on the beaches show, when no one is watching things are different.
Juz throw Roy and New Citizen Han Hui Hui into jail for a few weeks (sure can find a suitable charge). Maybe even put them into isolation. As this article shows people even confess to crimes they never committed when isloated (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special/2014/newsspec_7617/index.html). Happened in a country not known for rough interrogation methods, and which respects human dignity and rights.
Other wannabe Roys and Hans will take heed.
But doesn’t this sound like tearing off the wings of two noisy, aggressive young crows to frighten the sheep, chickens and monkeys? Maybe, maybe not. But it’s better than making new rules to make protesting more difficult.
And deport Han Hui Hui: she is “trash” not “talent”, and anyway she hates the S’porean traits of hard work, telling the truth, and civility (Go read her blog). How she became a New Citizen is beyond me. But then how did Yang Yin and ang moh awaiting trial become PRs, andtwo-timing Raj become a New Citizen? And how SGX’s CEO and president get the posts?
