issue being discussed : a china man killed his ex when he found out she had a new boyfriend after 7 days when they officially broke up. xiao, the china man, kept harrassing zhang, his ex, to clear her things from his flat. when she got there xiao pushed her onto the bed and when zhang grabbed a knife for defense, xiao snatched the knife and stabbed her. she had 192 bruises. xiao was not charged with murder because he had depressive disorder.
writer's opinions : the writer did not give any opinions on this article but i feel that what xiao did was truly an unacceptable act. zhang did not do anything to harm xiao and furthermore, they had been broken up for 4 months, just that they did not accept the end of the relationship and continued to live together. however when zhang finally decided to leave, she had a new boyfriend and i feel that this is not a valid enough reason for xiao to get so uptight and insanely jealous. even if they had been dating for a very long time, it is truly a disgusting act for one to kill his ex just because he is jealous. this is very inhumane and i find that even though he has depressive disprder, the court should not sentence him to 12 years of jail. instead, he should be sentenced to jail for a lifetime with regular visits to a counsellor, this is because he in fact did kill someone.
happen in singapore : this did occur in singapore and i find that the charges taken on this case is unreasonable and should be different.
