Thread: Do you think actor Christopher Lee will be punished accordingly for drink driving?

    Default Do you think actor Christopher Lee will be punished accordingly for drink driving?

    Just a kopitiam kind of talk so fans please do not take it personally. It is just a matter of having an open opinion for everyone to chat about.

    With the serious consequences of drink driving in Singapore and even injuring someone in the process, do you think Christopher Lee will be punished accordingly to the high standards of our laws against drink driving?

    Why do I say this is because we most probably have seen many cases involving people of different status getting a fine most of the time for offences but it seems another way around when anyone on the streets get into trouble with the law.

    Please also do note that I am not undermining the legal system we have in place here in Singapore as I have mentioned this is just another coffeeshop talk. If you find it rather offensive to your liking then please do avoid this thread.

    My Japanese Boss drink driving, met with an accident. (Did not hurt someone though) I went to the Kaki Bukit Traffic Police to bail him out. He just paid a fine and retake his theory test. Now he drives again.

    You can see how Singapore protect expatriates who have different status.

    No one is above the law. He should be punished accordingly.

    Years ago an MP, I believe it was Barker, was caught for DWI(driving while intoxicated), I will not mention names, he was fined and suspended accordingly.

    Anyways, the matter has already been publicised, would be kind of hard for him to get off that easy. If that were to happen the press will have a field day and so will the public. I know I will take issue if he gets off with a slap on the wrists.

    it's not just drink driving as i understand. he also did not stop to assist the victims (required by law) and just drove off after hitting them.

    i think it is better to state what's the penalty on both offences to put things in perspective and list some precedent cases.

    I think drink driving punishment is too light. Should increase to 20 years jail term, confiscate car, 12 wip of canes, forfeit driving license for 40 years.

    even this amount is too light as it involves human lifes ...

    Yes anyone should go to jail if this is the case.

    However, depending on who commit this type of offense, some are more equal than others

    Naw, I doubt. Especially since it's so under public scrutiny. With regards to traffic accidents and drink driving if I'm not wrong the TP are relatively lenient on those who have not caused any harm to human life. Of course this may not be correct, and obvious drink driving can whack hard if they want to under the law, but I guess it's to avoid unnecessary hassle in charging those with relatively "light" drink driving related offenses.

    There seems to be a double standard for expats and locals.

    I said earlier that no one is above the law, apparently there are some that are more privileged than others.

    Last time I check Christopher is local. I didn't know he left the scene of an accident where someone was hurt. It is not going to be good for him, he's up sh#t creek without a paddle.

    How about death sentence?
    If we make every offence to have death sentence, people would not dare to commit crimes anymore.

    Imagine death sentence for littering

    What can happen to him? He/MediaCorp got money and he's an actor, this is an open and shut case, but he manage to get a SC to represent him. This is where some ARE more equal than others.
