Just Give 5 Years to Cabbie Hitters
An eye for an eye, that's what I believe in.
Australia has made the right move by increasing the one year jail penalty to five. A ridiculous crime requires a ridiculous penalty. And just drop the fine, it's just pocket change to Singaporeans. Singapore should stop being a 'fine' country.
It will be great if similar penalty is available for those who hit bus drivers also. Just give them 5 years, they can take it. They are toughies.
There's just no reason for hitting public transport operators, who are making hard earned money justifiably.
