Kudos to the police again!
The relentless hunt by officers of the Secret Society Branch (SSB) and other Police agencies have not stopped. Known SS headmen and some of their underlings have been pulled in the island -wide crackdown. Many former headmen of such secret society gangs were detained or jailed for gang activity. When they were released after a lengthy spell in prison, some will try to keep a low profile for a while before resuming their control over the gang. Others make serious attempts at going straight, knowing full well...IT SIMPLY IS NOT WORTH IT TO BE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW AGAIN. If caught again, they face even longer prison terms.
The ability to move about FREELY is one of the most important blessings for a human being.
In short....FREEDOM is a most precious commodity which many of us take for granted.
The samsengs know that but thinking they are all too clever for the police, did not reckon on being caught easily when they planned and prepared for their murderous crimes.
Looking at all those knives..many appeared to have been carefully wrapped with cloth fabric.
What does this mean?
1. Leave no fingerprints as to who used it.
2. Provide better grip in the frenzy of the attack
3. Also will mean premeditated and planned attack...no excuse to say, "we did not plan,
we were provoked, we bought them off the shelves from hardware stores"...as new knives have no wrappings on their handles.
In yesterday's newspapers, there were very detailed descriptions of the horrific injuries that were caused by these scumbags wielding these knives...on the poor victim. He was cut, slashed and chopped right to the bone while they pinned him down...cutting through his veins, cartilage,tendons, and major artery. It was a miracle he did not die!
What shall we call these scumbags...BUTCHERS ? KILLERS? WHAT indeed?
