Man, if somebody has that little of common sense that moans again again about police not taking any actions relaying on his word only, then saying it's a broken record is like a complement. What you perhaps don't realize too is people reading this kind of stories with the later show made by the OP like yourself start to question the story itself.

*yawn* not another case of a domestic. do you expect a full blown investigations into every case of violence.

be lucky that you were able to report to a magistrate before you were injured. in australia, you'd have to be hurt/bleeding/dead before the police here would even take a look, because road safety (revenue raising) always has a higher priority.

Now, if you think it's okay in Singapore to point a knife at someone only two inches away from your stomach during a heated argument, you need to see a psychologist.

Something's not right with the way you see disputes.
You are pretty pissed and taking it on others .. other than yourself.

Now you see .. the law is an ass .. all over the world

Recently in another country, a woman got molested when she was drunk.

When next day she figured out what happened, she went to confront the culprit, and the culprit happened to be a police guy .. so while the heated arguement was going on whether it was consensual or not .. the lady lost her temper and slapped the cop .. within minutes she was handcuffed, and thrown into the meat wagon .. and she had gone "damn, the guy raped me and I get arrested .. "

Well, you see .. the law is an ass .. you MUST NOT TOUCH A POLICEMAN .. and for the molest / rape, she had to file a case and follow the process as per that country law .. and a lot of 'he said, she said' ..

And the same country's law says you can be arrested on the spot for assaulting a cop ..

You make sense of that ? it is not the size of the crime in Your eyes .. it is the size of the crime as per the law of the land ..

Now, if you are so confident that there will be another knife waving incident, you can plant a hidden camera .. or ensure the saga gets repeated in front of a witness :)


if you set up a cam, of course, even then, the defendant can go on to insist you set him up ..

Of course I am pretty pissed! What do you think? Don't tell me you'll be calm like a rock when someone points a knife at your stomach and is about to stab it in you!

Yes, the law is an ass, much like the people that run this forum.

And what makes you think I am still living with the couple after the knife incident? Are you crazy?

Clearly someone like you lacks common sense. You're obviously okay with someone pointing a knife at you during a heated argument about something as silly and stupid as a potato peel, because you don't see the severity of this incident.

If that's the case, I suggest you see a psychologist immediately.

jonive, i sympathize with your predicament. it's obviously not right to have a knife pointed at you, heated argument or not. if you are still staying at that place (you should move out as fast as possible as by the sound of it, your landlord are not nice/decent peeps) i suggest you have a friend over when you are out and about of your room and around the house or have a camcorder hidden so that when the incident repeats itself again, you have proof.

i was recently assaulted at my workplace, also by a china chinese (lady) and there were hidden cameras but the police (and to an extent i agree with ecureilx on the law being an ass) have advised me not to press charges, ie., go to court on the basis that the lady was poor! i was (and am still) thinking, to hell with her poverty coz she could have thought twice before she launched at me.

If endangering someone's life with a knife is yawn to you, people should question whether you're sane enough to be let loose running around the streets with a knife in your pocket!

In America, if you caught your landlord entering your room without your permission on cam, you'd be arrested and detained for 24 hours!

But in Singapore, no one gives a bloody continental and you call Singapore one of the safest countries in the world? My butt greets to that!

Well, Singapore is not the rest of the world, I guess.

Although they only shared with you their own thoughts, now, based on your comments to someone you never meet, personally, I see why the landlord can get fed-up.

Well I moved out from that place a long while ago. Why would I want to stay at a place where the husband carries a knife and attempts to hurt people using it? Clearly, even the crazy and insane wife admits that her husband has anger issues. The PRC couple is one insane bunch of red necks.

My point is, these sorts of people should not be roaming freely. At least I would expect the husband to be detained at the jail cell for 24 hours.

And yeah, I caught the bastard entering my room on my computer and I have clear evidence of him doing so. Yet, the police tries to dismiss the case, saying he did not steal anything.

The landlord being fed up? You mean yours? my landlord were not happy providing me a proper cable point that they agreed to in writing on the TA that they signed. Is that called fed up or simply breaching the TA agreement? I think you have terminology confusion syndrome or something.

And yeah, if you transfer me a lot of money, perhaps I will consider handing over my work pass and visit changi once and for all.

My landlord is perfectly fine, thank you very much. It's not about the confusion on the terminology, but you don't have any solid proof that your landlord is trying to harm you. If you think that law can support you only based on your words, it's pretty much strange.

And I don't have any obligations to say "Take it or leave it". Singapore and other countries have good side and bad side. Just because you're pissed off (FYI, life threatening situations are common things in my birthplace, not only with knife, but guns, poison, etc; and police can be bought easily with money), it doesn't mean that you don't know the etiquette and say "you're an ass" to everyone who's trying to help you in an accepted way in this country.

Bloody hell.

Bloody hell.
Firstly, I never said you're an ass. I said that the law is an ass and that your comment was an ass. I don't personally know you at all to call you an ass.

My PRC landlord even posted on a Chinese forum saying he is so angry he is in the mood to kill. Yep, he complained about me and he said he wanted to kill. He was asking for help. The forum has his photo on it. Is that enough bloody proof? Or do I have to go on a impossible time machine and take the police with me?

Speaking of solid evidence, I am very much interested in getting one of those Google Glass devices.

Only in forum? Dude, anyone can be anything in internet. Even a dog can type anything in internet. That's not a bloody-hell proof. Witness, videos, anything that anyone can see that you really face a life-or-death situation. Capiche?

So .. let me attempt to clear this ..

Your PRC Landlord, who posts on a Chinese forum .. ahem .. so you can read and write Chinese .. ahem ..

Oh never mind .. you are on a steam venting mission here I guess .. keep going ..





Then again, if you have left his house, why would you waste money in getting those "Google Glasses" ?? :)

And how it will make the situation different? The available thoughts from the others, although it's not helping much, at least you can appreciate them instead of giving "your comment is an ass". What is this? 5th grade? Tantrum?
