Lawmakers have called for measures to protect the city's rail network after suspected vandalism caused disruption to the East Rail Line on Sunday morning. A metre-long handrail appeared to have been ripped from a footbridge in Tai Po and thrown onto a power cable. While the disruption came very early in the morning and lasted under an hour, some lawmakers said it highlighted how vulnerable the MTR network is if someone is intent on causing damage to it.
Calling the campaign a backlash for insisting on bilingualism, the mayor found the numbers "" sprayed onto his home and his wife's car in bright orange paint. On March 5, Huntingdon town council voted unanimously to reject the Office Quebecois de la Langue Francaise's order to only issue bilingual notices to residents who request them. Despite the town not breaking the halfway mark necessary to have official bilingual status, the mayor told the press at the time that the town considers itself bilingual and has no plans to change how it operates. Bill , also known as the Charter of the French Language, is the law at the centre of the controversy.
A video of the incident, which took place in Pasir Ris Drive 3 towards Loyang Avenue, was recorded by the year-old cyclist who uploaded it to the SG Road Vigilante Facebook group that same night. The altercation took place apparently after the cyclist had allegedly hit a car driven by the year-old woman. Later, the couple also shared a video of the incident. Their second clip, taken from their car's in-vehicle cameras, was spliced together with footage taken by the cyclist and uploaded to the same Facebook group on Friday night. In footage of the incident, she and the year-old man can be seen trying to grab the phone from the cyclist.
A Florida teen came home last weekend to find an unpleasant surprise waiting for him: Vandals had covered the inside and outside of his mobile home in hateful, anti-gay graffiti. Jesse Jeffers, 18, discovered his Pace, Fla. While he was out, at least one person spray-painted messages of hate and derogatory pictures, including a crude depiction of a woman's breasts, on the inside and outside of the trailer. A swastika was emblazoned on the ceiling. Jeffers told The Huffington Post that he is too scared to go home after the incident and has been living with his mother.
