Unless one has some ideological opposition Singapore's government and wants to boycott it, I don't really see how it's strict laws would effect you unless you are doing something wrong. No it's not a 'police state' those people don't know what a real military/police state is like. There are not soldiers or police everywhere with machine guns. Some laws are strict, sure, but the average tourist is not likely to break any. The penalties are well-advertised. I don't approve of everything S'pore does, but as a place to visit, I've never had any problems.
