Penalty for spitting at someone in public. I was just watching the video of a badly behaved Chinese man (in blue top n jeans) spitting at woman (green dress) and harassins another woman (blue blouse) at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151679611990248 or 'Angry man spits at woman at Woodlands bus interchange' Me thinks that assault on a person's dignity should be as serious as outrage of modesty. Thus, such spitting cases should attract jail, fines and even caning for extreme or recalcitrant cases. However, for simple cases, perhaps compensating the victim a significant amount of compensation (made public in addition to a public apology might suffice for such arising from a momentary lack of self control (as is the current case for molest cases). BTW, I might have rearranged the blue man's face had he tried to do the same to me, sans footage. Anyhow, thanks to footage, I hope the blue guy does get to spend some time in IMH undergoing medical examination and even some time in Changi Chalet, reflecting on the crimes he commuted just over a bus ride to begin with.
