A dysfunctional society

Read this article:

There are insufficient policemen in Singapore, relative to the expanded population. The police are not even acting against physical assault. What is happening in Singapore?

Let me give you the answer. We have too many people working as property agents, insurance agents and remisiers, not adding much value to the economy but to sell questionable financial products and overpriced properties.

If people can earn more in these occupations, few will want to be policemen. Our education system and salary structure encourage this trend.

Singapore has become dysfunctional. This is caused by the poor leadership of the Government over the past two decades.

Yes, Mr Tan. A very much dysfunction society indeed. I reckon this Outsourcing mindset was started decades back. Besides the SPF, all other branches of the coverment were also in the game . A game to cut costs and invariably responsibilities . The Bottom Line seem to be it , The Bottom Line matters only.. Nothing else matter.

The regime even ask citizens to do volunteer patrols in the neighborhood. Save costs in hiring police so they can laugh themselves to the bank.

Meanwhile GLCs like Certis Cisco & Aetos are hiring more esp in hiring foreigners as aux police.
