A quick reminder before we start: wear your masks at all times while outside or risk getting fined.
Don’t worry, this will be slightly relevant soon.
Just yesterday, we had an incident with an unhygienic employee who handled raw and cooked food while also not wearing his mask right.
Today, we now have two unmasked men fighting, though with albeit funnier twist.
Snapping It Back
Recently, a public altercation broke out at Tekka Centre.
On 6 Sept, a Facebook video showed one man in a black shirt and another in white having a violent argument.
Even worse, without their masks on. A true sacrilege in 2020.
Very good! Now come out fight at Tekka!

Luckily, a few Certis Cisco officers stepped in to break up the fight.
Two of them pried the man in white away despite him shouting and resisting a bit.
And that’s where the magic happens.
Around the 0:12 mark of the video, one officer very coolly pulls up the white shirt man’s mask and snaps it back onto his face.
This moment was only made slightly less perfect because the mask covered the man’s eyes a bit initially.
Even the man himself got stunned for a moment before going back to argue with the officers.
When attempting to pull down his mask again to talk, another officer warned against it and the man swiftly complied.
AsiaOne reported that the two men were advised on their legal recourse and no further police assistance was required.
The video has now been a source of entertainment to many netizens.
As of this writing, it has been shared 138 times, over 120 reactions and 57 comments.
And the comments section? Well, everyone was having a blast.
Most of them commented on the bravery of the officer, taking action to stop the fight.
However, one or two comments actually noted that the men may have been drunk.
One person hilariously commented that this situation was akin to that of a particular “This is Sparta” moment from the movie ‘300’.
And if for some reason you don’t know what scene that is, here’s a quick clip of it.
Shout outs to the officer who stepped up to the situation. His bravery should be commended.
Also, do take note that drinking in public spaces between 10.30pm and 7am is not allowed.
Those caught drinking outside during said timings may be fined up to S$1000.
