Death penalty

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Am­rit Singh, Nau­sori

It will serve as a les­son to the peo­ple of Fiji that you can­not es­cape the law’s bru­tal­ity. Fiji is be­com­ing a drama show. Hus­bands stab­bing wives, fa­thers at­tack­ing children, rape and drug cases plagu­ing the coun­try.

It is like a virus that has taken charge of brains in Fiji.

The Par­lia­ment should be just and this topic needs to be ad­dressed. Crim­i­nals who com­mit mur­der in Fiji walk free in 25 years time.

No mat­ter how much hu­man rights ac­tivists shout that crim­i­nals have hu­man rights, let’s just re­mem­ber that ac­tivists can­not bring back a life once it’s gone.

Death by hanging should be le­galised for those who mur­der some­one bru­tally.

It will serve as a les­son to all those who want to slaugh­ter a loved one or a friend. Too much freedom is good, but it is be­com­ing a li­a­bil­ity for Fiji.

Ev­ery week rape, sui­cide, mur­der by stab­bing or do­mes­tic vi­o­lence case is heard and read through the me­dia.

Anger and ha­tred have filled the minds and hearts of peo­ple of Fiji and it is now ev­i­dent. Through vi­o­lence and the re­sul­tant deaths, we are show­ing other coun­tries how low we have stooped in the 21st Cen­tury.

Stop vi­o­lence and criminal ac­tiv­i­ties be­cause the di­rec­tor is look­ing at us from the heav­ens.

At least love the God you pray to and stop the vi­o­lence.
