They simply cannot accept this sort of cruel punishment.

Thousands of prisoners from all walks of life currently locked up in jail in Singapore, have handwritten and submitted appeals to pass sentences on themselves retroactively calling for the death penalty to be applied to them en masse.

This after they got wind of the appeal filed by Singaporeans collectively calling for Sun Ho to take over Serina Wee’s jail sentence.

Some prisoners started out in their appeal by reasoning that it is unfair for them to be locked up with Sun Ho.

One prisoner, Fan Fa, who wrote a note pleading for leniency, said: “We inmates are already paying for our crimes by being incarcerated in prison. We do not see the need to be further locked up in the same premises as Sun Ho.”

When they realised this might not sway the decision-makers, many changed tact and accused the move to let Sun Ho take over Serina Wee in prison to be a violation of basic human rights.

One other prisoner, Zuo Lao, wrote: “Being locked up in the same cell with Sun Ho constitutes as a cruel and unusual punishment and will be a human rights violation of the grossest magnitude.”

“As prisoners, we have been locked up with the understanding that we will be treated with some basic dignity. Not this.”

However, if all else fails, the prisoners are mentally prepared to take necessary action.

See Leow, another inamte, wrote: “Death is preferable.”

“If a call for leniency is ignored and the calling out of human rights abuses is not heeded, we will have no choice but to choose to be put to death.”

“We shall opt for the death penalty to be applied to us, as this shall be the last resort and the only form of escape.”

At press time, prisoners hoping that Serina Wee will still be the one going to prison have written in favour of extending their imprisonment.

Help this 21-year-old get into NUS!

Poly grad denied entry into NUS Computer Science, starts personal appeal website.

By Belmont Lay

If you’ve had enough of all that doom and gloom about our MRT system going tits up even as COE prices breached the stratosphere, on top of the overwrought sex scandal involving a truckload of men that has become nothing less than a grotesque public spectacle, here’s something to lighten your mood and perhaps restore your faith in humanity before this week comes to a close.

Alvin Wang started a personal appeal website to up his chances of getting into NUS. What's your excuse again?

Here goes: A very tech-savvy 21-year-old, by the name of Alvin Wang, has started a personal online appeal page called “Help Alvin Get Into School“.

His story is fairly straightforward: Alvin graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a Diploma in Information Technology two years ago.

But the deal is, his application to pursue a degree in Computer Science at National University of Singapore was rejected.

Instead of feeling disheartened and end up peddling his story anonymously to some sad sack website or Internet forum that blames foreigners for everything, he uses his God-give initiative to start his own personal appeal page to garner support, and hence, a better shot at completing his tertiary education.

The question is: Will he stand a better chance of getting into NUS when he applies again just because of this appeal site? (As of April 20, 2012 @ 2 a.m., there are 3,000 Likes.)

Will NUS buy this sort of antics?

Hey, who knows? Even Alvin himself sounds sceptical about his chances.

But you got to love this kid for trying!

He is gunning to become a developer, is obviously in love with his craft and appears technically competent – given that his website is eye-catching, fuss-free and funky without all that jazz and overkill.

So, to all of you who are reading this, please share this story far and wide.

“Like” Alvin’s appeal website on Facebook. Spread the word so it gets around.

I’ll use whatever means I have at my disposal to get your website noticed by the Dean, ok?

This guy deserves a shot at getting into university!

Because even though jumping up and down all the time blaming everything and everyone for our lot in life might be an option or something we are getting used to, I think it is obvious that we also have the choice of proactively doing something – even if it’s just this once – to help one fellow out.

Someone, someday might just repay you that favour.
