If not how would they know if it is any good or bad?
This after they felt they cannot judge whether the death penalty is good or bad unless they tried it for themselves personally.
One Singaporean, Qi Kwa Mai, said: “My grandmother used to say, ‘How you know the spinach not nice? You got try? You try first. Everything must try one time.'”
“I think this is good advice. You won’t know until you try it.”
Other locals said giving the opportunity for all to try out the death penalty once should be written into law.
Another local, Shi Yi Xia, said: “A lot of people arguing for or against something are doing so while relying only on pure instinct and ill-informed personal experiences.”
“If you want to be against abortion, you must give it a try first before vouching against it.”
“If you want to be against same-sex marriage, you should get into a union with a person of the same sex and try it out for a few months at least before making an informed judgement, listing out clearly the pros and cons.”
“These days people are too quick to jump to conclusions.”
At press time, more Singaporeans are for corruption after they’ve tried it.
