low crime doesn't means no crime

I have seen following sentence in many times here "low crime doesn't means no crime". It is true and felt very happy on that it is alert the people. Today i saw i news about robbery of 4 taxi drivers at knife point yesterday morning and 41 years old guy arrested. (Ref :Todayonline). I had similar bad experience in Sri Lanka around 2-1/2 years back and lost around 6K SLR to  bad guy got into my car as acting like ask for help. I was helpless. and that guy escaped. Surprise  here that the poor guy got arrested in within a day and good to see the law and order. And recently i found another news about try to bribe the traffic officer for S$20 for illegal parking.

The interesting and key success point in Singapore is giving good punishments for these crimes. Even though those are minor crimes, it does not mean no crimes.. :-) For $20 bribe, that lady could be fined up to S$100,000, or jailed for up to five years, or both. The poor robbery guy could  get punishment of imprisonment of at least 3 years but not more than 14 years, and a minimum of 12 strokes of the cane.

Low Crime doesn't means no Crime.. be alert...
