Bring back the death penalty
Amrit Singh, Nausori
The crime rate has risen in Fiji in recent months and there is no shortage of the types of criminal endeavours at the moment.
Brutal stabbings are the main criminal offence for August and September.
There is a need for a change of laws in Fiji. It may sound harsh, but the death penalty by hanging in Fiji needs to be passed on account of the severity of the offence.
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 murdering 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.
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 violence.
