Philstar.com, 30 Sep 2014
A local court has sentenced a couple in La Union to life imprisonment after being found guilty of crimes related to the production of "crush" videos two years ago.
The San Fernando Regional Trial Court Branch 30 also ordered Vicente Ridon and his wife, Dorma, to pay a fine of P9 million after being convicted of child abuse (Republic Act 7610), animal welfare crimes (Republic Act 8485), human trafficking (Republic Act 9208), and wildlife-protection crimes (Republic Act 9147).
The Ridon couple were convicted for filming scantily clad girls, one of whom was a 12-years-old, stepping on and crushing live animals to death. Full story


PAP MP Teo Ser Luck edits his Facebook page several times to change his stance on CPF blogger Roy Ngerng

Mothership.sg, 29 Sep 2014
PAP MP Teo Ser Luck can’t stop editing his Facebook status about CPF blogger Roy Ngerng. Either he is the most wishy-washy MP or has obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
At first, Teo insists Roy Ngerng performs a dance for the kids he heckled to show his contrition:

PAP MP Baey Yam Keng accused Tampines resident of lying after complaint was lodged about estate cleanliness

Facebook, 29 Sep 2014
A resident emailed me claiming that a half-filled water was left dangerously on the staircase handrail for two weeks, and that the cleaner was slacking. As the town council Chairman, I am deeply concerned as this would be an unacceptable lapse of service. I tasked the property manager to investigate this and he did give me a report soon after that. Just to convince myself, I personally spoke to the cleaner Mdm Tan in charge of Blk 498L this morning
Mdm Tan vehemently denied any negligence on her part. She said she conscientiously walked every floor to clean any litter and would have removed the bottle if it were there. It is also unlikely that she would have missed it over that many days. She did take a couple of days MC during that period, but there would have been another cleaner covering her duty. Even if the other cleaner had missed it, she would still have noticed it when she went back to work. Hence, it is impossible that the bottle would have been there unattended to for two full weeks.
Of course, it is the resident's word against her word. Having spoken to her face to face, I do not think Mdm Tan lied to me. Based on her track record of work performance, I choose to believe her.
I do appreciate it if residents give genuine feedback as it is useful for the town council to improve its services. However, I hope people do not exaggerate the facts. And I sincerely hope that this resident had not fabricated this water bottle matter. Otherwise, it is very difficult for anyone to take their feedback seriously. It is also not practical nor fair for the town council to spend unnecessary efforts to attend to such emails. It is very disruptive to their work.
As this particular resident sends such emails frequently, I have instructed the town council to ignore him from now on until he changes his behaviour.

Ex-PAP grassroot leader from China Yang Yin had applied for his PR using a fake degree bought with Madam Chung's money


TR Emeritus, 30 Sep 2014
According to a Chinese new media report yesterday (29 Sep), a friend of 87-year-old widow Chung Khin Chun told the media that he has the evidence to prove that PRC tour guide Yang Yin obtained money from Mdm Chung to procure a fake degree in China.
Mdm Chung’s friend said that at the time, Yang asked Mdm Chung to wire S$4,000 to him so that he can procure a fake degree in China. It is believed that the degree may have been used to help Yang obtain an Employment Pass to work in Singapore in 2009 and later apply for his PR.
The friend produced an acceptance letter supposedly from the “University of Financial and Trade Beijing China” (北京财经贸易学院) to show that Yang was accepted by the university to study for a bachelor’s degree in 2006 ...... Full story

OPINION: When Special Needs Children Became Mere Pawns For Opportunistic Politicians


My Singapore News, 29 Sep 2014
These three words have now been used in a political battle to prove who is more caring and more like angels. Sad, very very sad that these children have become an issue in a political tussle for attention, become political tool or cannon fodder.
Anyone want to ask why I did not post a single photo of these children and actually refused to mention their condition? Let’s show some respect to them and their parents for a bit of privacy. I feel quite disgusted with people blowing their trumpets and carrying these Special Needs Children on their shoulders for cheap publicity and to score points for whatever agenda they have.
On hindsight, I love highsight, the best place to hold an event for these children, see I don’t use the phrase Special Needs Children, is the Istana ground. And the President could grace the occasion and chat with the children in full privacy from the public glare. I have been involved with many such activities in social service clubs and I am fully aware and very sensitive to these children and their families. I avoid intentionally to photograph them unless there is a very special reason to do so.
Let’s leave these children and their families in peace. Link

OPINION: Despicable politicians who have no qualms about using special needs children to score cheap political points


Singapore Notes, 29 Sep 2014
Right on cue, the mute button was toggled off. Politicians who stood idly by and played dumb for weeks while a 87 year old pioneer generation member was in grave danger of being robbed and pillaged by a foreign intruder were suddenly jostling to leap into a feeding frenzy.
You know brains have left the building when "Return our CPF" is construed as a phrase to "heckle" special needs children - unless the folks withholding our CPF are certified retards in the medical sense. Full story
