Downtown East murder: a culture of knife-wielding teens?
I think most people are shocked by the brutality of the Downtown East murder of a youth.
The fact that a chopper was the weapon used in the murder will not have escaped the attention of many Singaporeans.
These days do teen gangs go around arming themselves with lethal weapons like Swiss Army knives, batons, choppers and the like?
If this is the trend, and I’m inclined to believe it’s so, the authorities must nip
it the bud.
They must send a strong unequivocal signal that this is against the law.
It’s very hard to eradicate the problem once it has become the culture as we’ve seen happening in Britain.
