U.S. Student Tells of Pain Of His Caning In Singapore

The 19-year-old American who was caned in Singapore for vandalism said today that the bleeding it caused was "like a bloody nose."
The teen-ager, Michael P. Fay, said in an interview that the four strokes with a rattan cane on May 5 had left three dark-brown scars on his right buttock and four lines each about half-an-inch wide on his left buttock.
In his first description of the caning, Mr. Fay said that prison officials told him he shouted, "I'm dying," when the first stroke was delivered. He said he could not remember making the cry.
He said a prison officer stood beside him and guided him through the ordeal, saying: "O.K. Michael, three left. O.K., Michael, two left. O.K., one more; you're almost done."
The Government of Singapore has defended the punishment as a traditional part of the country's legal system. The caning strained Singapore's relations with the United States and has been seen as largely responsible for the United States' voting against holding the first summit meeting of the World Trade Organization in Singapore next year.

And that was just four strokes of a cane and not 80!
Hundreds of years... or for those who check facts... 8 months ago.

Last I checked, getting 4 cane strokes is not equivalent to burning a girl alive.

The christians in Iran knew damn well what would happen if they were caught with drugs or alcohol. They apparently were willing to take this risk. It did not pan out very well for them.

They aren't being punished for christianity. They are being punished for possession of alcohol.

What part of zero tolerance do you have a problem understanding?

80 lashes is very severe. But in a theocracy... fair doesn't exactly matter. Does it?

Speaking of fair... lets take a look at what would happen here.

3 young people found in possession of heroin.

Sentence... a combined 17 years plus probation. One guy got 12 of those years himself.

Would you trade 12 years for 80 lashes? I would... in a heart beat.

If we started publicly flogging drug addicts in Detroit... you would be there with a camcorder and at least one giant sign of support.
Be glad you were born in a secular nation where we only have to HEAR religitards.

You need to grade his impact in relation to to others in similar positions. I don't know of anyone who eliminated poverty and abolished unemployment in Chicago. According to your metrics, Jesus Christ was a complete failure.

Blacks on the south side of Chicago are eliminating poverty for their fellow black man everyday wojar. Of course their methods may be somewhat harsh, but being poor doesn't matter when your dead, does it. I grade his impact on results, not intention or lip service. His work was meaningless and had no lasting impact on his already organized community. Now the impact he is having on our country is a whole different story. The "good" he has been doing has been bad for the country, and the bad he has been doing has been even worse for it. Obama is not Jesus, not even remotely close, that I know for sure. His "bible" is Rules for Radicals, and that was dedicated to satan. Enough said.

Hitler was a christian. Proven time after time. The entire political platform was based on "positive christianity". He didn't get a page into mein kamph without going on about his christian values. How in the hell do you think he validated his hatred for the jews?
"... I am convinced that I am acting as the agent of our Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the Lord's work."
Mao was presented as a god himself. Nothing atheist about that.
Stalin himself was atheist, but there was absolutely nothing secular about his regime. Like Chairman Mao, he presented himself as a man without reproach. Giant displays of his face on buildings...etc.
Pol Pot believed in heaven and destiny. Both supernatural concepts. That makes him a madman, not an atheist. Atheist don't believe in the supernatural. He not only came down on the religious, but those who practiced medicine and science. He was all about class warfare.
Of the four... Stalin is the only one that could fly at all as an atheist.
Stalin was a seminarian at one time, no?

Based on your criteria, Jesus was a failure,(wojar's right, post no. 176544) as his people were as oppressed when he died on the cross as when he began his ministry. Same for mother Teresa. Is she a failure? Are the poor of Calcutta any better off? What about l'Abbé Pierre in France? Are the betrothed any better off? Barack Obama brought first aid to the poor communities, as Mother Teresa, Abbé Pierre did for the less fortunate. Only the collectivity can bring long-term aid. That collectivity is the gov't but it would rather spend over $700 billion on armaments PER YEAR. Imagine what that amount of money , applied to the less fortunate, could do, not to mention what is spent worldwide on arms to kill people.

Never reproach Jesus Christ, Obama, Mother Teresa, Abbé Pierre and so many other good Samaritans among us for bringing even temporary, passing relief to the less fortunate who otherwise would never know a sliver of comfort for want of a compassionate world.

Yes... really. You idiot.

The law says that you get lashed for possession of alcohol or drugs. No exceptions.

We are supposed to suddenly give a shit when christians break the law and find themselves under the whip?

Maybe it would make a bit more sense to you if they would have been in possession of skittels?

The world taking it's sweet old time breaking away from barbaric superstition is hardly my fault.

In addition, I question your ability to wield a shotgun without tipping over your mobility scooter. This is America douche bag. We are all armed.

Exactly, and as I said earlier today, if Rogue and his buddies put their arsenals aside for a sec and took the time to read all of the so-called holy books, they'd soon change their tune. They would then realize why the bible was off-limits to the faithful and most of the priesthood. You read it, chances are, you'll leave it. As I've often said, if the Bible was on trial, particularly the Old Testament, it would invoke the fifth. And that, Rogue, does not make me an atheist - that is my own business.

Global Warming Alert. Downtown Jacksonville is 53F but it is only 44F at my house just 15 miles away.
Liberals always say that local weather is not climate but they connect the dotes of local weather and claim that is climate while totally ignoring the 99% of the world that is not in an Urban Heat Island Big City!
And they wonder why people like me call them Libtards.

Yea, I know James Taylor is left of center but I do have one of his albums and enjoy it but even a professional singer every now and then gets a brain fart.
I still think he is a patriot for standing up and at least attempting to sing our national anthem. After all he is from Boston and the game was in Boston.

How much charitable work do you need to do for god to be ok with evoking the name of Jesus to keep the poor down?
I am not familiar with such scripture.
Ya know, the LDS has their our charity system but if you are otherwise healthy they will expect you to mow the grass or work at the daycare center. The GOVERNMENT does not give a damn if you spend five dollars a day on cigarets (that could have gone to food), sit around the house all day (while the government pays for someone to mow your grass), etc.
I do not mind helping people UP but I hate feeding their addictions or laziness and I don't think God would would that against me.

Hummm, my parish priest is from India. He said his hometown is all Catholic and has a population of 13,000 and 75 priests but they get along a lot better with Hindus than the Muslim villages do!
