The cop would be fired, the child expelled, and someone would have thought the Nazis were involved.

ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD Yeung Cheak Heng hammed it up for his friends last night, raising his arms in mock surrender as a Special Operations Command officer aimed a weapon at him.
The officer’s appearance among the spectators is one of the new elements in this year’s National Day Parade (NDP), showcasing Singapore’s defence capabilities.
The pupil from Red Swastika School in Bedok was one of about 18,000 Primary 5 pupils from 62 schools there to catch a sneak preview of the parade last night, before most Singaporeans get to enjoy it on the big day – Aug 9.
The pupils’ viewing of last night’s NDP rehearsal was part of a National Education programme in schools, which aims to develop national cohesion.
Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean was guest of honour at last night’s event.”
