The police officers told me that they should not do anything because they did not want to 'harm' the couple's relationship. Sure, they made the excuse that they would also ask the investigator if they should proceed to talk to the guy; but they seemed in no hurry to do so and even proceeded to boast about their understanding of Singapore's criminal code when I expressed my disbelief.
I would like to share this story to bring awareness of domestic abuse and violence, and in support to my friend. Hope this post goes viral and make her parents feel shameful to what they had done to their daughter.
What was supposed to be a sweet wedding night for two long-time sweet hearts turned into a violent mess, a UK court was told. After returning to their room, the groom began assaulting his new wife after he failed to remove her wedding dress.
When I read the article yesterday "AMAZING! AS SG POPULATION INCREASES, CRIME RATE DROPS!", I couldn't agree more with the author's frustration and suspicions at such statements by the police and the govt. I can tell you it is worst than that. Let me add another dimension that is just as alarmingly significant but seldom mentioned in order to keep the 'ideal family unit' that PAP tries to impose on unwilling innocent victims - domestic violence. This coincides with the recent article: http://www.divaasia.com/article/6151 that reveals the loopholes in our justice system.
