In Singapore, apparently, crime is down to such low levels that the people paid to solve crimes are having to get increasingly more “thorough” in investigating even the most trivial of crimes. In this case, the crime being investigated involved toothpicks being left in a bus seat. People, we’re all only one unsolved toothpick in bus seat crime away from anarchy. Let’s get serious about this unserious ‘crime.’ The next thing you know, it’ll be Somalia up in here, with toothpicks EVERYWHERE. This just goes to show you that so long as people are paid through theft (remember folks, taxation is theft and whatnot), they will do whatever they gotta do to “justify” their reasons for stealing your money and paying themselves, including tracking down rogue toothpick discarders.
A 60-year-old Singaporean man is under investigation for inserting toothpicks into a seat on a public bus, a suspected case of “mischief” that could put him behind bars for up to two years, the police said on Tuesday.
“Through extensive inquiries and with the assistance of CCTV footage, officers … established the identity of the suspect,” a police statement said.
Pictures of three toothpicks sticking up from the seat were posted last month by a Facebook user, who said she noticed them just as she was about to sit down.
“Remember to check your seat next time before sitting, guys!” she wrote. The post was shared more than 2,500 times.
