Singapore Civil Defence Force full-time national serviceman Kok Yuen Chin died after he was found unconscious inside a pump well at Tuas View Fire Station on Sunday (May 13).
In a statement on Monday, SCDF said that Corporal Kok Yuen Chin, 22, was found there at about 9.20pm. He had been celebrating his impending operationally ready date (ORD) with his squad mates.
One of the activities involved getting him into the pump well, which is a reservoir of water used by fire station personnel for training and testing of pumps for fire engines, it said.
The pump well is about 12m deep with a diameter of 1.8m. At the time of the incident, the water level in the well was about 1m from the opening.
However, Cpl Kok, who is a Malaysian national and Singapore permanent resident, did not resurface. A number of SCDF personnel jumped into the pump well to find him, but were unsuccessful. He was eventually pulled out of the well after the water was drained.
Two SCDF regular personnel were arrested on Monday after preliminary investigations. The duo, holding the rank of Warrant Officer 1 and Staff Sergeant, were Cpl Kok's colleagues who worked in the same shift duty at the station.

Golden Thirteen, group of African Americans who in 1944 became the FIRST group of black servicemen to complete officer training for the US Navy. The group became known as the Golden Thirteen in honor of their having begun the process of racially integrating the Navy, which at the time of their service may have been the most tradition-bound & segregated branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.
During World War II, as military conscription brought tens of thousands of black recruits into the Navy, senior white commanders & government officials became concerned at the lack of black officers to lead them. In 1943 the secretary of the Navy agreed to commission black officers, & 16 candidates were chosen from the ranks to undergo accelerated officer training at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station in Illinois. Most, but not all, of the 16 had been to college, & some had advanced degrees; most of them also had been athletes, & all had exemplary service records. From January through March 1944, they went through officer training in segregated facilities at Great Lakes under the tutelage of white officers. All passed the course, but only 13 received commissions, 12 as Ensigns & 1 as a Warrant Officer. (The reasons for the rejection of the final 3 were never given. Some have speculated that the Navy, accustomed to a certain failure rate among officer candidates, did not want the black group to be seen as performing better than whites.) #HappyBlackHistoryMonth #KnowYOURHistory ✊🏽🔴⚫️💚

I value my acquaintances with authors who frequent these literary gatherings. My paltry contributions are not usually editorial in nature. I prefer quick, pen-&-ink sketches rather than prose, and as my Sharpie Ultra-fine marker captures the features of others at a long table in the quiet room, I stare at them disconcertingly. When I do dictate captions, as I'm doing here, Instagram limits me to 400 words. I can only identify a few. One is a no-nonsense purveyor of stories of people in legal relationships (1). That pleases me. (2) Another at the table is a congenial black guy who writes about families and children. (3) Still another told stories of an Indian Publishing Company. I learned to write during military service under three separate commanders. First I was a Buck Private in the Army. My main job was writing reports: straight expositional prose. My sentences, had to be framed in subject-verb-object syntax, which led me to modesty. Dick Trebino, the ungainly warrant-officer who ruled over the intelligence unit, was not capable of flamboyant English. I had studied philosophy from effete professors and I haled from the affluent horse country of eastern Pennsylvania. When I described a withdrawal by the Thai insurgents to the mountain stronghold of Songkhla province, he balked at my fox-hunting terminology: "We have sources reporting that 'they went to earth' at so-and-so coordinates." Bino would not accept that analogy. "Went to earth?" he questioned. My clarification: "When the hounds track the fox to its warren," was beyond him. When I made Corporal, they called me to the embassy on Wireless Road where the State Department elevated style over substance. The natty Foreign Service Officer for whom I worked had perfect taste. His writing was beautiful and sophisticated, but it did not say much. Toward the end of my military tour, I worked in northern Thailand with an organization called Unrevealed Influences (UI -- "CIA" is not openly named in the field). UI ran operations into Southern China.

THIS GUY opened fire at President Donald Trump’s Miami-area golf resort, while shouting anti-Trump rhetoric.
.
One officer broke an arm and the suspect was wounded by gunfire in the incident, which began around 1:30 a.m. at the Trump-owned Trump National Doral Golf Club.

Trump was not at the club at the time.
.
Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez identified the suspect as 42-year-old Jonathan Oddi of Doral. Police were preparing a search warrant to enter Oddi’s house, Perez said. His neighbors were evacuated Friday morning as officers swept the area looking for booby traps, Perez said.
.
“We don’t know what his intentions were in the long term but we know what he was doing at the time — he was trying to engage our police officers in some kind of ambush-type attack,” Perez said.
.
In plotting the ambush, Perez added, “He did succeed and he did lose.”
Video footage showed the conscious suspect being wheeled into a hospital on a gurney.
.
Perez said the man took down a flag from the rear of the complex and draped it over a lobby counter.
.
“He was yelling and spewing some information about President Trump and that’s what we know so far,” Perez said.
.
The man fired shots into the ceiling and waited for officers to arrive, he said. Four officers from Doral and one from Miami-Dade quickly encountered him and exchanged gunfire. The man was arrested without further violence.
.
“You know, these officers did not hesitate one second to engage this individual that was actively shooting in the lobby of the hotel,” he said. “They risked their lives, knowing that that they had to get in there to save lives in that hotel.” .

Via chicagodefender.com: The Chicago City Council Finance Committee today approved a $2.5 million settlement for a West Side family terrorized by Chicago Police in a precedent-setting, excessive force lawsuit charging CPD violated the family’s civil rights by breaking into their home, holding a loaded gun to the chest of a 3-year-old girl while she watched officers put a gun to her grandmother’s head and hit and shake and slam her handcuffed mother’s body against a wall. The full City Council is expected to approve the deal Wednesday, June 27.
The plaintiffs’ attorney Al Hofeld, Jr., says the issue at the heart of the case – CPD’s failure to have a use-of-force policy and/or provide officer training that protects young children from police use-of-force – remains shockingly common yet invisible in policy and publicity.
“Thankfully, we now have heightened national visibility and outrage focusing on police fatally shooting young African-American men. What we are still not hearing are the stories of thousands of children routinely being terrorized by police, like the Chicago Police officers who held a gun to the chest of 3-year-old Davianna Simmons,” Hofeld said. “Between 2012 and 2015, roughly 1 out of 10 lawsuits the City settled involved someone younger than 18. This has got to stop. And I will continue to file these cases on behalf of young children of color until CPD makes it a priority to protect them. Right now, it is not even on CPD’s radar.”
Next Case: In a similar case Hofeld’s firm plans on filing later this month, officers with a warrant kicked in the door of the wrong apartment, entered with guns drawn and pointed at the family, ordered two young boys (ages 5 and 9) and their mother and father, to lie on the floor, and handcuffed the father in front of the children for 20-30 minutes while the children cried and pleaded. The officers continued to search the apartment long after they were informed they had the wrong apartment. They did not find anything illegal, and no one was arrested.  Officers never apologized or explained to the boys, who are now exhibiting trauma-related behavioral issues in school and receiving therapy for emotional problems...
