UN HUMAN RIGHTS: SG MUST BAN DEATH PENALTY, OFFENDERS DON'T DESERVE TO DIE

The UN Human Rights Office for South-East Asia condemns the execution of Malaysian national Prabagaran Srivijayan. It noted the increase of executions in Singapore and was concerned about how they are conducted in "secretive" manner. "We reiterate our position that drugs related offences are not considered as a ‘most serious crime’ under international law and should not carry the death penalty. We also reiterate previous calls to the Singaporean government to immediately instate a moratorium on the use of the death penalty, which we believe has no place in the 21st century."

DRUG COURIER DESERVED A 2ND CHANCE, PLS ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY!

My most sincere of condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of the late Muhammad Ridzuan. It's really sad that he had to go off this way. It's definitely a must to appreciate and thank Mr Ravi for fighting till the last moment of Ridzuan's death. In a country filled with keyboard warriors, I'm proud that this one man stood out to help with no fear or negative influences. People do make mistakes and I think they should be punished. But they should be forgiven and given the opportunity for a second chance. For an offence which Ridzuan had committed when he was 25 years of age and for him to be hanged after 7 years is really a big heartbreak! Is there no chance of rehabilitation for a young Singaporean offender who was only 25 years of age and even then only a mere courier?

The government sets the laws against anyone committing/attempting suicide. You said that the law, deters the distressed from taking their own lives. Then you, impose the death penalty and take away the very same distressed person by taking away their lives? My intention here is not to challenge the government or the law but to humanely ask for the death penalty to be abolished. Please do something about this and please find a more humane solution to this.

POLICE ARREST PASSENGER AFTER CAR EVADES ROAD BLOCK, BUT NOT DRIVER

Police have arrested a car passenger this early this morning for drug-related offences. The arrest came as the car the man was in evaded a police road block along Kallang Way. However, the car driver was not arrested.

How strange. Pretty sure the driver was the one who evaded the road block, not the passenger. Arrest the passenger for drug offences, no question, but driver let free? Unless he was forced to evade the road block by the passenger, then he should be arrested too, right?

Youths generally against drugs, but older youths hold more liberal views

While a large majority of youths view drugs as illegal and addictive substances, older youths tend to hold more liberal views on drug use, survey findings released on Thursday show. The findings, released by the National Council Against Drug Abuse (NCADA) based on a survey of 2,075 youths conducted last year, also show that nearly 60 per cent of those polled said their parents have never spoken to them about drugs and drug abuse. This finding troubles NCADA, an advisory council to the Ministry of Home Affairs, which hopes to correct this through greater outreach efforts.
