but remb no crime doesn;t mean will not happen

just be careful as usual walking alone at night

and ur belongings.

since sg has lot of FT come here to work bound some of them are blacksheep.

this cannot be prevent.

Bit xenophobic aren't you? Are you saying Singaporean do not commit crimes? I watched a gang of Singaporean youths kill a man with chunkels & pipes one night in Sembawang. And yes, the were Singaporeans as it was written up in the papers after they were picked up. Singaporeans also tend to commit snatch thefts a lots as well.

I've got a question for you, how do you tell the difference between a foreign crook and a Singaporean one? Difficult isn't it. So you shouldn't presume that it's the foreigners. Crime was here before there was a high concentration of foreigners as well (I've been here 27 years). And the catch phrase is "Low Crime doesn't mean No Crime" and was originally coined by our very own Addadude here on this board (he the advertising man who had that project).

I suppose it wont be the first time you heard singaporean said that crimes are committed by foreign worker??

Actually, other countries also tend to blame immigrants for criminal incidence..
