Bad Behavior by American sailors is news?

One of the strangest story that has come out in Singapore in the past week was reports of how an American sailor with the US navy punched a local man in the Orchard area. The man needed four stitches to close the wound.

Now I don't condone what the American sailor has done., but is this really news? Bad behavior by American Navy sailors isn't what I would call news because it's not! A certain building along Orchard Road comes to mind as I write this.

The sailor will probably be punished for this but this incident is hardly worth the front page of the Straits Times because...well, it's not actually new is it?
