The Singapore public has shown strong support for caning litterbugs.
According to Channel NewsAsia, "Killer litter, a scourge that has refused to go away for more than four decades, has again been thrust into the spotlight following the death of an elderly woman – the first reported fatality since 2002 – after she was struck by a bicycle wheel allegedly flung by a teenage boy from the 14th floor of a Eunos Crescent block."
Singapore considers litterbugs a scourge to society.
As reported by Channel NewsAsia, "Despite government efforts to raise awareness of this public-safety issue – including taking a hard line, such as the option of repossessing an offender’s flat – high-rise littering remains a persistent concern and is, in fact, a growing problem in some estates, said Members of Parliament (MPs)."
Singapore government has been deemed one of the world's most repressive regimes.
