of Huang Shiyou jail term, a waste of taxpayers' money & how The Shawshank Redemption 'lesson' is applicable to protect innocent girls

I read with mix of emotions how the serial sex predator Huang Shiyou's appeal against his 32-year jail term was dismissed by the Court of Appeal.

See, on one hand I agree that he had to leave rotting in the jail for as long as possible. On the other hand, I think about how the taxpayers' money are wasted to keep this animal caged. Why can't we just shoot him & get it over?

What's the point of keeping this monster alive? Just because he deserves a second chance? By the time he's released from the jail, he'll be 55 years old. Still not too late to redeem himself? Maybe. Does he deserve such a chance for redemption? Again, maybe.

And talking about redemption, I just come to think about the movie, The Shawshank Redemption.

See, there's a lesson learnt from the movie which could have helped the innocent girls from being a victim of Huang Shiyou. (The article mentions how the creature made some victims--whose age between 9 to 14--performed oral sex on him.)

I let the following rather-graphic excerpt from the movie explains the lesson:
Boggs: Now, I'm gonna open my fly and you're gonna swallow what I give ya to swallow. And after you swallow mine you're gonna swallow Rooster's cause ya done broke his nose and I think he oughta have something to show for it.

Andy Dufresne: Anything you put in my mouth you're gonna lose.

Boggs: Naw, you don't understand. You do that and I'll put all eight inches of steel in your ear.

Andy Dufresne: All right. But you should know that sudden serious brain injury causes the victim to bite down hard. In fact, I hear the bite reflex is so strong they have to pry the victims jaws open with a crowbar.

Boggs: Where do you get this shit?

Andy Dufresne: I read it. You know how to read, you ignorant fuck?

Imagine if the victims know about the movie & apply what they learnt. There is a possibility that the monster could have been bleeding to the death when one of the victims did bite off his 'organ'.

Then again, who am I to kid? The Shawshank Redemption is, unfortunately, not a show for children.

Serial sex predators must be jailed for as long as possible to safeguard society, said the Court Of Appeal on Monday when it dismissed Huang Shiyou's appeal against his 32-year jail term.

Appeal Judge Andrew Phang said the 23-year-old, who had assaulted nine girls between nine and 14 years old, was a menace to society and very likely to re-offend if released too early.

'The systematic and serial nature of his offences demonstrate a propensity to re-offend and the key consideration for the court is on prevention,' he added.

Huang, then a full-time national serviceman had gone on a rampage from April 2007 till July last year. He made some victims perform oral sex on him and tried to rape them.

In addition to the 32 years in jail, he will be caned 24 times.

The sentence could hardly be considered as 'crushing' since Huang would be in his early 40s when released after remission, said Justice V.K. Rajah, adding: 'There'a school of thought that paedophiles who attack young children should be put away indefinitely.'

From Straits Times, "Paedophile loses appeal".
