Singapore needs a complete revamp of its laws

If it is savage to deliberately kill a person why do we savagely hang a person to death?

Man-made laws are not divine laws. To err is human. To forgive divine. If a person commits a crime under a law, he has erred. Should not the person be given a chance to reform?

In the case of drugs, the person did not kill though some people predict, as if they are some divine entities who know the future that by deliberately extinguishing those convicted, many lives are saved from drug addiction. This is absolute nonsense.

People take drugs for many reasons not least because they want to escape from personal problems and temporarily take leave of the world. We cannot be judgemental. Drug addicts need treatment. Hanging the person who sells them drugs will not decrease the problem. The government needs to reexamine the issues and reach a more realistic decision. It should not simply shift the problem to the judges and the attorney-general.

The 2012 amendment to the law has made the attorney general a judge who decides who lives and who dies. It is a clear case of conflict of interest as the attorney general who prosecutes becomes a judge in deciding life and death.

Singapore needs a complete revamp of its laws. Harsh and unforgiving laws are easy to make but will it solve our societal problems which I do not think is worse than any other country. Indeed we are an exceedingly tame society.

    If people like you run the country, they probably allow smoking in schools.
    You also probably selling drugs thru vending machines.

    Just many in America, more rights are given to the killers than victims.
    Why?
    Because the victims are dead? And so be it.

    These same people argue that sentencing the criminals will not bring back the dead, they proudly proclaimed.

    And killing unborn babies is their personal rights.
    And yes, killing sharks is inhumane they declared.

    Sad

    The PAP regime has not proven beyond any doubt hanging to death drug traffickers reduce drug abuses or caused untold sufferings caused by drug abusers.

    As someone said treating covid endemic is admission of covid measures failures of the Ministerial Terror Force – drug traffickers hanging is silent PAP admission of their failures is educating pple the evils of illegal drugs and hanging is the easiest way out, even COST FREE, HEADACHE FREE to the PAP.

    I always tell THEM that I will stop eating ‘shark fins’ soup for life if they will stay in a tank full of sharks just for 1 minute.
