Actually this idea is partly based some contributors comment, including yours: :D


How about trying this in China Town, Peninsula, Golden Mile and Lucky Plaza first ?
The last three places are worse on Sundays and people can't even enter the buildings.
Trial - Before going after the Injuns.


So there ARE places for folks to go aside for those who insist in going to LI ! O:)
However, I guess if jaywalking is as prevalent those locations, (besides having a riot), I am pretty sure a little of "crowd management", aside from banning certain products and services might help a long way..

that way some people will have Sundays off, others maybe Wednesdays, others Thursdays etc, that way the crowds coming in will also be self contained.


Tell me which company take crowd management of popular places for the benefit of their workers and staff as one of their business consideration ?

I think you mean "on" Jakku.
Not sure what you trying to say, but considering the First Order itself initially had no idea Force was strong on that little rock until that droid led them there.. :mrgreen:

This may not be related but not totally unrelated (be fearful, Big Brother is watching you) either. Can't really blame them, I would not want to get kidnap either :P


Singapore-based bookstore chain Page One seems to be taking the mysterious disappearance of Lee Bo and his colleagues pretty seriously, removing from its Hong Kong shops all material banned from the mainland.

Definitely unrelated unless one stretches the argument that this involve a Singapore-based company.

Perhaps the more related discussion is how immigration policy has divided Germany, especially after recent violence and attacks in Cologne by alleged foreigners/immigrants/asylum seekers.

Clearly, this isn't a question of how "Big Brother" or liberal a government or society is, but rather how a country manage immigrants when things goes south..

"Minor skirmish" ? :o
Does this mean you find the LI "riot" an acceptable violence from where you came from ?

You don't know where I came from so ... I suggest you change your tone a wee bit, if you bother.... if not, it doesn't matter.

And Did I say its acceptable ? Again, you are on roll here and seems you aren't aware of it, just keep going.

If it matters to you, let me say it, for your happiness "The little India riots was of apocalyptic level and definitely it shocked the world. It was far from anything the world has ever seen and history books Will remember it for generations.." <<< Happy Now ?

I ASKED if you find what happened in LI acceptable, not explicitly saying that you find it is, not counting the fact that you consider the incident as "minor skirmish"...

I suggest that you read my post carefully before coming back trying to make me "happy",again [-X
