    Default Yong Vui Kong spared from the Gallows!

    http://sg.news.yahoo.com/drug-mule-e...065424927.html

    A Malaysian man on Thursday became the first convicted drug trafficker to escape the gallows in Singapore following recent legal reforms in the city-state.
    Yong Vui Kong, 25, was re-sentenced to life imprisonment and 15 strokes of the cane under Singapore's new discretionary death-penalty regime, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General's Chambers told AFP.
    Under reforms that took effect this year, Singapore judges are now allowed to spare drug traffickers from execution if they were mere couriers and provided "substantive assistance" to police in the fight against the drug trade.

    25 years old now.
    Arrested in 2007. That was 6 years ago.
    That means he was 19 years old when arrested for drug trafficking.

    So is 19 young, innocent and blur block - easily misled? Hmm... maybe for Malaysian Chinese males only. Useless bum. He should hang.

    Singaporean males at age 19 are busy defending their country in NS and some have become commissioned officers.

    My sentiments exactly. One recent case about a Chinese national who robbed
    and killed a taxi driver death sentenced was commuted to life imprisonment.
    So unfair victim dead killer lives.

    To the drug cartel, Yong Vui Kong is expendable.

    Hanging a small fry like Yong Vui Kong will not help police catch the boss in the drug cartel.

    It is more important for the police to go after the big fish instead of the small prawns.

    Would you accept the same verdict against you? Or would you rather be glad to have the chance to see you family at least occasionally?
    Death penalty is final, errors are fatal. Who wants to claim to be always right?

    Sometimes it's all in the strategy to gain more information on how they work.

    Let the small fish lead you to the nest.

    Else, you'll just be winning all the small battles but losing the war in the end

    IMO, killing the murderer doesn't help the situation in anyway lol. It's like revenge, but done legally.

    Anyway, congrats to M Ravi, SG's (best) Human Rights lawyer!
