My God.

Just saw the LiveLeak clip from the link x9200 posted in this thread.

I thought I knew but I really didn't.

It is much, much worse than I thought.

While it gives new meaning to the old "I'ma get medieval on your ass" meme, and that might be funny, the reality most certainly is not.

I can't believe this is sanctioned. I can't believe anyone could support it.

It really is truly barbaric.

I believe that clip was not from Singapore, but from Malaysia wasn't it. They are a bit more barbaric.

I don't support it in Fricker's case or for anyone else who doesn't harm anyone, but I do have some support in the right circumstances such as for when someone has deliberately set out to cause suffering to a person or an animal.......but for vandalism, no way - it's too much for that.

So Singapore must have been the Everest of the underground Graffiti world, high risk but high rewards, getting a few scars on your butt is a lot safer than falling off a mountain.

Anyway I am sure like ASBO are being used as trophys in the UK, he will no doubt look at the welts in his butt as some sort of badge of honour.
