Our comments:

  1. We really need street cameras everywhere. Without video evidence, it is so hard to catch the perpetrators or know what actually happened.
  2. The maximum 3-year jail term and RM100,000 fine should be increased especially when violence, abuse and deaths are involved.
  3. To all humans – this earth belongs to the animals too. Live and let live. Please.
