Finally, Some Real Change Has Come

Woke up to see some great news in the papers.

Singapore is no longer making the death penalty mandatory for drug traffickers and murderers. Sentencing will be on a case to case basis depending on the criminals involvement in the crime.

Judges now have the option of imposing life imprisonment if the drug trafficker is a just a courier and has no involvement in the supplying and distributing of the drugs.

The same option goes for murderers with no malicious intent to kill another.

Nguyen, your passing has not been in vain. Our countless protests may not have saved you then but change has finally come and it brings a tear to my eye. Your noble sacrifice has saved a nation from a third world mindset.

Singapore, for once I salute you. Keep it up. I’m still not voting for the usual suspects though. You still have a long long way to go.
