Seeing people getting hand cuffed is rare in Singapore though the threat gets dropped sometimes..
Like in a drunk driving check.
"Sir, if you are found to be drunk above the limit, we will arrest you and get your car towed away... "
I have seen the rarest shop lifters, street brawlers and sometimes, bar bouncers cuffed.
There was an expat in this forum who said the cops don't leave the cool air con of the car, though the reality is opposite.
PS, singapore enforces the "illegal assembly law" pretty often, to ensure there's no big gang fights
That's good to hear they have that flexibility here. It seems to be people for the most part are generally more respectful towards law enforcement here, and vice versa. SOP in the US is cuffs no matter what if you're detained.
If you're disrespectful to me, I wouldn't put the Aircon on for you either. I'd turn on the heat. It's a 2 way street.
