Very sobering and shocking news

K. Shanmugam disclosed that between 2017 to 2019, there were 6988 cases of sexual assault, rape, sexual assault by penetration, outrage of modesty etc involving children and vulnerable persons.

Yes, in those 3 years alone, there were 6988 sex crimes in Singapore. On average, there were 2329 cases yearly, 194 cases monthly or about 6.5 cases every single day. I ask how many more unreported and unknown cases are out there?

Although these are very bad and shocking news, still, I want to put on record thanking Minister Shanmugam for his candid sharing.

Even though not all of those crimes were committed by Singaporeans, still, in our case, almost all of our citizens are educated and I for one have never believed that mere formal education makes people better human beings. What is worst in our case is MOE’s neglect of sustainable moral education in our schools over the years. To me, to believe otherwise is stupidity and naivety of a very high level.

So, what went wrong with our society?

I believe that many such crimes were not committed at the spur of a moment but deliberate, calculated and exploitative in nature. Our female population, whether students, mentally challenged individuals, working adults or stepchildren etc deserve much better protection and 6988 cases of sex crimes over a 3 year period definitely suggest that this pap government has failed to adequately protect them.

Sex crimes come in all shapes and sizes. I have a few suggestions.

1) I would like to see public education and publicity seriously and sustainably stepped up to one, raise public awareness and two, educate and encourage our woman population to report any sexual violations because hesitation will only embolden the offenders even more in their behaviours and by the same token, false reporting must also be met with equally severe consequences.

2) Women have a part to play too, eg, dress to overly expose themselves or getting carried away with friends and gotten drunk must count in judicial deliberation.

3) I would like to see our laws dealing with such crimes be reviewed as soon as possible with punishments much enhanced to make canning mandatory as much as possible and public shaming the offenders as much as possible too. Also, never say never to chemical castration as well.

In fact, now that such grim numbers have been made public, everybody has a part to play and it is in everybody’s interest to do his/her part. Together, we can and we will make a difference to ensure a safer society and country for all, especially our women folk.

I do not wish the next victim to be anybody’s mother or daughter or sister or wife or neighbour or even somebody we don’t know.

Think.

  • Too polite is not good:

    If you want to be very polite to your relatives and friends, that’s your personal choice.

    However, when you are too polite to politicians, it may have a negative impact on the public. What?

    Here’s why.

    It is the duty of the police and the minister to periodically release crime data. Why wait 3 years, and only when asked in Parliament?

    You thank this minister. All ministers get the wrong picture. They forget their duties to publish data periodically, whether crime data or others.

    In this case, instead of thanking the minister, we should follow up and ask why the data is not made public periodically?

    Good countries make such data available publicly.

    Simon Lim ah….

    “ canning to be made mandatory as much as possible “?

    There were cases of young adult females committed sexual offences on teenaged males.

    Do you mean to say these young adult females should be canned also?

    Oh, my good god….! You are more draconian than most people!

  • PAP CLOSE DOWN:

    Lots of men wear tank tops or sleeveless tees, tight cycling shorts. Like the women said, how you dress is not an excuse for rape. There are also instances of women getting raped despite decent clothing.

    Lots of people walk around naked in STOMP. They never get raped only reported to police.

  • Some claim sg low crime rate:

    Its common to hear people perceive sg having low crime rate.

    Nearly 7000 sex crimes is not insignificant.

    If overall crimes recorded as low, how big a ratio are these sex crimes of singapore in relation to the whole picture?

    Is this ratio higher than other countries?

    Why?

    What about crimes reported but not prosecuted due to dropped case

  • Dictatorship in disguise:

    Is it true to say statistics of number of crimes is not an exact indication of the actual number of crimes where crimes can be defined as something someone defines to be statistically relevant??

    Eg. If there is a crime commited but the victim no money to hire lawyer to pursue?

    Or the victim is employee of the attacker who is the boss?
    Fear of losing job, she did not report the crime?

    Powerful man committed crime but poor victim deterred from suing him ?

    Its just like corruption ot money laundering. We wont know the exact number.

  • Tharman talking cock. Again:

    Straits Times: Making ours an uplifting society

    Definition of “uplifting” – inspiring happiness, optimism, or hope.

    Tharman is full of crap. Since LHL became PM Singaporeans are worse off. He opened the gates wide to foreigners. They came in large number to take away the job of Singaporeans. Being exempted from CPF they are significantly cheaper to employ than locals. Thousands of Singaporean PMETs lost their job.

    “Cheap” (no CPF) foreigners also depressed wages and their “demand” pushed up prices. Singaporeans were squeezed and screwed by PAP. To make matters worse the price of HDB flats more than doubled since LHL became PM. The retirement savings (CPF) of Singaporeans were “drained” and put into over-priced, low quality, depreciating (to ZERO) HDB flats.

    Considering the above Tharman is a hypocrite and insults Singaporeans by talking about “uplifting”. There is no reason to talk “happiness, optimism or hope”.

    Moreover, PAP is still protecting foreigners. The work visa of foreigners should have been cancelled with the economic downturn caused by the pandemic to force foreigners to go where they came from. Singaporeans can take over their job in Singapore.

    Also there is nothing “uplifting” for poly and ITE students to be just hawkers.

  • Harder Truths:

    Gangsterism and violence, especially against women, children and the eldery are all typical of third world mentality brought here and expanded by foreigners.

    Too many of them, too lax rule of ‘law’ against their crimes, too much acceptance and indifference by the locals even when they are being warned repeatedly.

    Most of these who are victims and their families voted and are still voting for the regime. The reminder of the majority just turn their backs because it does not happen to them. But it eventually will sooner or later.

    In that kind of a situation there is no solution. People will have to live with the third-world criminals as best they can. And expect a rise in this kind of activity. $G is no more the ‘safe’ place it was 40 years ago.

    Why you worry what Shanmugam said? He is not alarmed why are you? You think you are an expert in law and order and crime and punishment. Were your grandma and mother sex-slaves in the Japanese Occupation? If not, then you are an alarmist and not a very sincere and concerned one. If you prefer barbaric punishment as a deterrent to all crimes, why not petition Shanmugam for public caning and public execution by hanging. You can volunteer to wield the ‘rotan’ and be the masked hangman for free. Guarantee you will shoot to fame immediately. Don’t ask others to do what you don’t have the guts to do.

    Reported on the TISG :Quote -”Lawyer M Ravi charged with criminal defamation of K Shanmugam
    He is accused of alleging that the minister had claimed that he wields influence over and controls Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon

    Obbana Rajah

    December 16, 2020….

    Singapore — Lawyer M Ravi was charged in court on Wednesday (Dec 16) with criminal defamation of Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.

    Ravi, 51, is accused of defaming Mr Shanmugam by alleging that the minister had claimed that he wields influence over and controls Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon.

    The allegations were made in a Facebook post on Nov 6, with Ravi claiming that he had heard them from fellow lawyer Eugene Thuraisingam.

    However, in a post on his own Facebook page the same day, Mr Thuraisingam, a prominent criminal defence lawyer who has represented several people accused of murder and secured the acquittal of a doctor accused of rape, called Ravi’s Facebook post “false and completely untrue”.

    “I refer to Mr M Ravi’s Facebook post this morning where he alleged amongst other things that I told him that the Honourable Minister for Law and Home Affairs had made statements to me which cast aspersions on the independence of Singapore’s judiciary. This is false and completely untrue. Mr Shanmugam has never said anything like that to me. I have also never told Mr Ravi any such thing.”

    “This is my letter to Mr Shanmugam making this clear,” he added, including photos of his letter.

    The case was heard only briefly on Wednesday, with Ravi telling the judge that he had already made representations the previous week.

    It will next go to a pre-trial conference in January.

    In October, after successfully overturning a death sentence of drug trafficker Gobi Avedian, Ravi gave an interview where he insinuated that the AGC had acted in bad faith or maliciously. When he failed to apologise and retract the allegations, the AGC filed a disciplinary complaint to the Law Society of Singapore over Ravi’s possible professional misconduct. The outcome for the complaint is pending.

    If convicted of criminal defamation, Ravi could be jailed for up to two years, fined or both. /TISG…”Unquote .

    Response : When is the court judgement for this case so that after judgement,all of us can comment on the judgement !Pui! Don’t cover up !
