Title : Father and son face death penalty for allegedly killing robber who slashed Singaporean mum


Summary : This article is about a Singaporean Mom married to a Malaysian, was slashed by a robber going into the house, but the Father and Son killed the robber instead and they are going to be sentenced to death if they are pleaded guilty.


Response : I think that if it was really an act of self defence, they should not be pleaded guilty or given death sentence. It was indeed wrong for them to kill a person, but it was for their own sake and if they did not act up on it, the robber would do something even more cruel.

  1. I agree with your point that they should not be given the death sentence. I feel that they have been wrongly accused as the father and son killed the robber to stop him from harming the mother, and not get charged for murder.
