Based on YouTube videos it takes about 10 policeman to take care of his sister alone. If these people were deployed to guard Mas Selamat, he wouldn't have been able to escape. Although we know now that Chee is highly dangerous, perhaps we should also allocate a little more resources to guard terrorists like Selamat. While I know the consequences of allowing Chee and his people to escape arrest for assembling and speaking in public will be devastating for Singapore, we should have assigned a few more people to guard Selamat because he was handed to us by the Indonesian government. Just look at the large number of policemen assigned to take care of Chee in the video, he is a threat to our society. Although he does not intend to harm us physically, he is hurting our minds by telling us the govt is to be blamed for our inflation woes. He has hurt us in the past by calling us serfs (slaves) because we don't have freedom...by calling us repressed people because we don't have a real democracy...by calling us sheep because we have been fed filtered information from media. Mas Selamat may be a terrorist but he hasn't hurt us as badly as Chee. That is why the police has to turn up in large numbers whenever Chee and his people get together.
"I and many others are grateful to the Government and appreciative of what it has done....let us continue living a trouble free life under the current government...."

"Thanks for your advice Mr. Fernandez. I feel alot more comfortable if everyone is like you but some people like Chee will never learn. Yes, let us all continue to enjoy this trouble free life and ignore troublemakers like Chee. Even with Mas Selamat running loose, life is okay in Singapore"
Back to the issue of Mas Selamat. Where is he now? Members of the public have been told to report any missing clothing, food and lost vehicles. There is a 5 hour traffic jam at the Causeway because every vehicle has to be thoroughly checked in case he decided to smuggle himself out in the boot of your family car. Every MRT station, bus and train has his posters. Our police is monitoring every forest and watching all the former JI members for clues. Everything that can be done is being done to catch this limping terrorist. But where is Mas Selamat now?....For all we know, he could have collected a few thrash bags use them as floats and swam to Indonesia in the middle of the night. If he did that, maybe the Indonesians can catch him for us like they did the last time and hand him over.......
