Let me +1 this here, I am seriously scared for my life whenever I interact 
with law enforcement officers in the US, just from the fact that I know 
they have to interact with armed people all the time and have to be 
cautious that anyone they interact with has a decent likelyhood to be 
armed.

If we can't go to Singapore because they happen to have anti-LGBT laws on 
the books, then I suggest we do not have any further meetings in USA at 
all, especially not states that have stand-your-ground laws on their 
books.

As opposed to Singapore where anti-LGBT laws aren't really enforced, in 
USA these kinds of laws seems to be on the rise instead of things getting 
better.
