Singapore Orders Caning for Graffiti Vandal

A Swiss man has been sentenced to five months in jail and three lashes of a cane for spray-painting graffiti on the side of a train in Singapore. In today's ruling, the judge called the incident a serious breach of security. Reuters points out the island has a low tolerance for petty crime: "Singapore outlaws chewing gum and has strict fines for littering and a mandatory death sentence for drug peddling. The crime rate ... is among the lowest in the world."

Video posted to YouTube shows the graffiti on the day it was painted.

Hope the Judge will find, on appeal, Fricker should be canned 8 times and given 18 months in prison!
