The Last Thing You Want Is to Wind Up With a Limp

Ok ok,

“THE leader of the Singapore terrorist Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) network, Mas Selamat Kastari, escaped from the Whitley Road detention centre at about 4.05 pm on Wednesday, said the Ministry of Home Affairs in a statement. A massive manhunt involving the police, Gurkhas and Special Operations Command forces, is underway to track down the escaped detainee, who walks with a limp.

‘He is not known to be armed. Extensive police resources have been deployed to track him down,’ said the ministry statement.”

This is actually quite ironic – apparently the Internal Security Department has poor security within its own grounds. How did a limping man manage to escape from a detention center in world-class Singapore and still manage to be free after half a day of ‘massive manhunt’?

An excerpt from the papers from today where the minister for Home Affairs can be seen making very interesting comments.

“This should never have happened,” said Wong, who is also the deputy prime minister. “I am sorry that it had. An independent investigation is under way, and we should not speculate on what and how it happened.” – Straits Times, 28th Feb 2008.

I’m sorry? We should not speculate? Is he so sure he can tell us what to do? I believe his priorities should be sorted out. Find the person who is responsible for this folly (scapegoat) and make him come forward with his story.

What I don’t understand is why the authorities are not coming clean about what actually happened that led to his escape? I think and hope they will, but maybe at a later stage after investigations have been done. It’s something that should be clarified to the public, because letting a terrorist escape is no small matter. Those with the responsibility (scapegoats) to guard him should be held responsible and punished for allowing this to happen.

If this had happened in a established and free country, by now we would have received full details on what and how it happened. People would be apologizing and leaving their positions. It would be fascinating to see what our minister will do.
So this is the kind of “good governance” we pay top dollars for? This is why our council of leaders is so highly paid for?

Having said all this, i also believe that is also the time that we should support the civil service even more. Even now, Soldiers, policemen and many more civil service officers are working round the clock to make amends. I wish to play a part, even if a small part to get this man caught.


ps: The man walks with a limp for Gods sake.

Laughing at Gilded Butterflies

Archtomato works in the IT security industry and has managed to convince his bosses for the past 10 years that his best work is yet to come.

Archtomato is a coffee nut, a photographer without focus, a traveler who can't read maps, a diver who floats all too easily and a champion of world peace.

He is an avid practitioner of the dark side of the force; admires Chuck Norris, Paris Hilton and collects vintage Batman comics. Just like the Horizon, Time Dilation, Flying pigs, Tax Reliefs and possibly, the "Opposition", he believes he is more of a concept than a corporeal being.

Archtomato believes that the true nature of man is decided in the battle between the conscious mind and the desires of the subconscious and that the evil of man's subconscious is often too strong to resist. The only way to win is to deny it battle.

He now lives in a world of pollution, profanity, adolescence, smelly beavers, zits, herpes, broccoli, racism, ozone depletion, sexism, conscription, yellow bananas, stupid people, nightmares, dog whisperers,Gamma Ray Bursts, Nuke Baddies and sings badly but regularly in the bathroom.

 Tomatoes were sacrificed in the making of this website, contents and for the continual existence of its owner.
