Giving up a rifle when threatened with a screwdriver.

Just a quick musing over the incident at Pasir Laba camp where a soldier handed over a SAR rifle when he was threatened by someone with a screwdriver.

I mean, hey, it was a rifle he was carrying! Even if it was not loaded, how could he have surrender a weapon of that kind to someone wielding a screwdriver? It makes me wonder how Singaporean men (or boys) can go to war and defend the nation.
