Teen offenders had to do community service..in past.
[ ST report 1996 ]
Click on the image to enlarge and read.
Look at the date on this report which was in 1996...14 years ago.
Our Singapore courts and other agencies involved came out with this innovative approach as part of their strategy in tackling the teen problem.
On paper it looked good. In practice it should be even better.
That being the case, why have we not heard anything more about this so called
" Community work for teen offenders " anymore. Years have passed by.
I do not seem to recall any news about any teen offenders serving graciously ( by court order or whatever ) at any CC, old folks home, hospice, childrens' home etc...
Any of my readers and visitors remember?
