Nagaenthran K Dharmalingam is dead. His execution date was today and Singapore carried out his sentence as determined. Over and done with.
However, some biased foreign media and SJWs are all up in arms at what they perceived is Singapore’s violation of human rights.
Never mind that the death penalty is made known to everybody coming into the country. Never mind that Nagaenthran K Dharmalingam smuggled willingly.
He got what was coming to him.
Apparently, SJWs (both local and abroad) and a couple of the biased foreign media are all piling on the fact that Nagaenthran K Dharmalingam was claimed to have an IQ of 69, which they say makes him mentally incompetent.
I say bullshit to that.
First off, that was just a claim that his defense lawyers brought up, which was deemed inadmissible after court appointed psychiatrists said otherwise.
In other words, the claim might have been cooked up just to muddle waters, with no real basis in fact.
He obviously knew what he was doing…and so does Calvin Cheng, who had this nugget of information to share.
Cheng argues that having an IQ of 69 (if it’s even true) doesn’t mean that Nagaenthran K. Dharmalingam was unaware of his actions. Cheng brings up the fact that IQ does not affect one’s ability to make a choice.
In this case, Nagaenthran K Dharmalingam chose to smuggle drugs into Singapore. He did it knowing full well what could be awaiting him if he was caught. He thought about it, and made a conscious decision to go for it, even knowing it was illegal and more importantly, morally wrong.
Obviously, the SJW and foreign media are ignoring that teeny little factual nugget and the rest of the truths pertaining to the case. They only pick and choose what they want to fit their narrative, that Singapore executed a mentally incompetent drug smuggler.
The fact is Nagaenthran K Dharmalingam did the deed and paid the price for it. Fudging around with claims that might not be true doesn’t change a damn thing.
Singapore is a sovereign state and many locals (and foreigners) support the death penalty.
Deal with it.
