Swift action also needed for other cases

I continue to be baffled by the Singapore police.

When a young woman allegedly pastes a few stickers on traffic lights and paints some words on the roads, they seem to spare no effort in tracking her down.

But no one seems to have been brought to book for some recent cases of assaults on the elderly.

For instance, I have yet to hear of anyone being arrested after an elderly woman was punched in the face for no reason other than asking someone not to put trays on the floor at a food court.

One can't help but wonder - do our police place more value on property than they do on human lives?
