Just Give 5 Years to Cabbie Hitters

Source: Cabbie Woes: More Cabbies Attacked
In the first seven months of the year, ComfortDelGro has seen 17 attacks against drivers, more than double the number for the whole of last year.

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.
