Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times of Sept 24, 2011 has the story "Man in road rage incident is high ranking RBS exec". It tells the case of a European working in a high ranking position for Singapore Branch of Royal Bank of Scotland, Mr. Stefan Masuhr, a middle aged man, who got out of his luxury Bentley in a crowded Singapore street (they are all crowded in Singapore) and smashed the windscreen of a car driven by a woman because he did not like the way she drove.
At the time of this unprovoked violence in public, the woman was still inside her car with the windows closed, presumably trembling with fear of him.
An examination of the sentencing practice in Singapore for their ordinary mortals, by which I mean the average Singaporean who goes to the coffee shop and has his regular roti prata (the Singapore equivalent of the English egg and bacon), is usually jail time no less than a week. Especially so as he would have caused extreme fear to the local Singapore woman who was in her car with all her windows closed, hysterical with fear.
But you know what, I can bet my every penny that in this case, this wealthy Caucasian will not go to jail at all. It will just be a fine in his case after all, since Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew has a long standing policy in his "rule of law" country that some should be treated better than others.
You have heard about 2 years ago the case of the editor of a state controlled Chinese language newspaper in Singapore who was talking on her cell phone while driving, ran a red light in a busy traffic intersection, crashed into a motorcyclist, killing his pillion and paralysing him from waist down.
Yes you guessed it, there was no jail term in her case. Don't forget, she is after all special. As expected in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore kangaroo courts, she was asked to pay a small fine and walked off Scot free.
I do not know if since then she has killed anymore people using her car as a lethal weapon. I wouldn't be surprised if she did. After all she has special treatment being the editor of Lee Kuan Yew's Chinese language propaganda Sheet. It is like expecting Adolf Hitler to send Joseph Goebbels, his propaganda man to jail. Anyone else on the other hand would have gone to jail for at least 2 years.
We may not know exactly how much the fine will be in this well connected Caucasians case but that is only a case of details. But one thing I can bet with anyone who reads this blog which is this. Rich Caucasian is not going to jail. If he does I will eat my head.
