I do not see any point in petitioning online for her to get a lighter sentence. It is a wrong message to send out to any potential vandals out there. Vandalism is vandalism.
These stickers and spray painted roads might put a smile on your face. Then again, it might not. How would you feel if you see these sticker or spray painted texts on the door of you home? Your car? Your pet dog? I’m sure as hell not going to find this amusing.
This is plain wrong.
Here’s why I think she should be severely punished.
- She knows that high profile vandals in Singapore are usually dealt with severely. For example Michael Fay and Oliver Fricker. She knew what the consequences are and still chose to commit the crime.
- When it became evident that her acts are getting a lot of attention, she did not stop. She carried on doing it. This is basically her ego telling her that she is above the law and nobody can touch her. This should not be encouraged. Nobody is above the law.
- Loan shark runners are doing the same thing. If I were to artistically vandalise a door, or a corridor or a lift landing with O$P$, can I call it art and get away with it? Probably not.
She wilfully committed a crime and should be prosecuted according to the law.
