UPDATE: Stabbing death in Marigot

Falcon Wallace

Marigot police are conducting investigations into the death of 38 year-old Falcon Wallace of Marigot.

Police have confirmed that Wallace died as a result of a stab wound he sustained to his lower abdomen during an altercation with another man from that same community.

Police say the incident occurred at around twelve midnight at Dam in Marigot.

They say Wallace was transported to the Marigot hospital where, upon arrival, he was pronounced dead by a medical practitioner.

One man is in police custody assisting with the investigations.

    some of these comments are just downright ignorance, no matter how he lived his life that don’t give no man to take his life away from him he is a human being just like everybody else, and the community of marigot is an utter shame and disgrace to be saying these malicous things about the dead, SO WHAT IF DIDN’T LIVE A DECENT LIFE no man is perfect everyone has their ups and down in life and the minute he try to make a turn around someone from that same community MURDER HIM, i can tell u one thing he might be bad but he sure ain’t no KILLER and thats the differenece, and dedee ain’t nothing but a coward, if he wanted to fight he should have fight like a man not run upon a man unexpected, DEDEE is the devils child, send upon the village to commit murder….MURDERER MURDER

    One thing with out people we look for every opportunity to make our ignorance is bliss public.There is something definitely wrong in our country one of the things that we must understand is it starts with us each individual is responsible for their own actions.The govt and the police force needs to find a different way to handle these spur of the moment crimes and minimize the increase of violence among our people.The police needs to do night patrols and random searches of people the find look suspicious they are concentrating so much on drugs that there is little attention given to the other areas of law and order maybe if they were to do night patrols and these random searches it would curb the violence to a minimum most of our young people walk with weapons like they go out with the intentions to commit criminal acts too many violent reactions for petty arguments people need to learn to be tolerant!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Fool…..the whole article is based on information given by the police.

      First sentence: Marigot police are…
      Second sentence: Police have confirmed….
      Third paragraph: Police say….

      So naturally the next paragraph is based on what the police said. So you want every sentence to begin with “Police say?”

      Use a little common sense nuh. SMH

        These people lack reading comprehension, that is the reason they do not want to see a comment that is more than three lines long, and without all sorts of abbreviation and figures in the place of proper vocabulary.

        I am shaking my head as well, but I glad that there are still some of us with the reading comprehension–you are one that among us, thanks to God.

    As I read through the comments here, I notice that some of us are asking what is becoming of our Dominica–something like that. But dear people, let us not speak of Dominica as if she is a person by herself, as we exclude our personal self.

    Fellow Dominican, let us be aware that Dominica is us, the people–whether we live on her grounds or are away living on other grounds of this world.

    God has furnished our Dominica’s landscape for us with all sorts of natural beauty–which remains untouched.

    Hence speaking about the land itself, nothing has happened to our Dominica–the problem is with us, Dominicans, who are human beings like every person in the rest of the world. Yes, as human beings we are plagued with all sorts of flaws–too numerous to mention.

    The reason for those numbers of flaws in us is that, just like all human beings in this world, we Dominicans are lost from the natures of patience, endurance, or tolerance, we are lost from goodness, kindness, obedience, and humility; we are lost from self-control–all of which are the traits of Love, the Life that God gives to us, except that we must demonstrate those traits in Spirit and Truth–but we are human beings.

    That is the reason why I say we are lost, because as human beings, we depend solely on the control of our human senses, through our mind, and so we cannot demonstrate the Ways of the Spirit, through our human senses.

    As human beings we are to undergo the “New Birth” to bring the inner us alive, the birth is the birth of Love in Spirit and in Truth–meaning we are to be “born again” of the Spirit, Love, that we might grow and mature in practice of the ways of Life, which are the traits of Love

    That is the reason Jesus told Nicodemus that he was to be “born again” of water and the Spirit, because Nicodemus noticed that Jesus was different from men around Him, and he concluded that only God in a person could be like Jesus.

    Jesus functioned in this world with the Mind of Love, which is of God Almighty, Eternal Spirit, the Father, by whom He was possessed, hence He told usm through His disciples: I am in the Father and the Father is in Me.

    So you see people, the reason we do the things which do against, God, against our loved ones and close friends, and against society on the whole–even against our selves–is because we are being driven by that human mind of ours, which cannot comprehend the Ways of Life–the traits of Love–because this human mind of ours is carnal.

    As human beings, we cannot know the Ways of God, which is of Spirit, if we are not “born again” of the Spirit. The same way a human baby will grow up learning the things of his or her human parents, it is the same way a baby Spirit will grow up learning the things of God, the Almighty Father, who gives us Life in the Spirit. “You must be born again”

    As human beings, we must apply the measure of faith that God blesses us with, that we might come to desire the things of God, as because of our faith, Holy Spirit will connect to us through conscience.

    Holy Spirit, indwelling our conscience, is the way we are “born again” of the Spirit; even if you did not notice the exact day that “New Birth” came on you, because of its spiritual nature, you will know it because of the change of your thoughts, God does not keep this a secret from us. From that point onwards, we will become learned in the Ways of the Spirit, gradually.

    But instead we continue to turn a deaf ear, to those teachings about God–whether through our fellow man or Holy Spirit Himself, who wants to connect to us through conscience–the evidence of the New Birth in us. We complain about two pages of writing to read, how can we know the message of the Holy Bible

    But we embrace the teachings of the world, from the god of this world, he who hands out to us, his weapons of fear, that weapon we eventually use to steal, kill, and destroy even our on selves–much more for others, no matter who the are in our lives.

    Lord God, Eternal Spirit of Love, who lives in Your Person of Love, His name is Jesus Christ.

    I ask You today, to hear the call of Your people of Dominica. Dear God, You know that too many of us are slaves of our carnal mind, the state of mind which hinders knowledge of You and You Love, in Jesus Christ. And yet knowledge of You and Jesus Christ, is evedence of Eternal Life in us.

    I ask O God, that You be willing, and my Hope. dear God, is that You will say: I am willing as You touch us through deliverance of this kind of bondage which possess us. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Glory be to You alone Dear God. Amen!

      LIzavier4Jesus Well said! I cannot add anything to that. Strange but true I enjoy reading the articles of others even it may seem long as I want to get the gist and opinion of the other person as well.

      Those who thumbs down Lizavier4Jesus should know that even if her articles are lengthy she always has a message and not a carnal one but a divine one. Let us be honest,s he has touched the core of our problem. Thumbing down does not do anything to her. Actually those who read should be tolerable of others and therein lies the point that Lizavier4Jesus tried to make. I am sure that those who thumbed down the article just said stupess and did not even take their time to read what she had to say. Therein lies our problem impatient and we try to blame someone else in this instance as Lizavier4Jesus has rightly said Dominica a piece of land not realising that we are Dominica. I won’t elaborate on this but I am urging the bloggers and commentators to read and digest even the articles seem long not only of Lizavier4Jesus. The message is in there and sometimes to cary forward the message, one cannot be short. Remember when we hear the call, we should not harden our hearts. The truth is the truth always but we know that some of us become offended by truth. Let us put our eyes on Jesus so we can be delivered from our bondage. Let us read our bibles and pls note that it is not one paragraph as well but as read more and more, our eyes will be opened.

      • August 27, 2012

        @?????????????

        I do not care about the thumbs down–you are right it does not affect me. Or else I would have stopped commenting on this news site, a long time ago. DNO I thank you that you always print my messages, for God is working through you and me together.

        By His Grace God’s Love continues to build, in me, wisdom, understanding and knowledge of the ways of Life in this world–who are the people.

        Those who continue to give me thumbs down are they who are enslaved by their carnal mind, they comprehend the things of God–you will have noticed that I prayed on their behalf at the end of my comment above, because I am aware of their state of lost in them so well.

        I am glad for you because I know that you are a spiritually filled person, and so you know the message of the Spirit. That is what Jesus meant when He said: “My sheep know my voice and the listen to me”.

        Unfortunately in the days when Jesus walked this earth, there were more goats than sheep–He had only 120 disciples waiting for the Promise He would send to them, from the Father–that Promise was the anointing of Holy Spirit. That situation of too many goats and a few of the sheep is worse now than then. That is in prophecy also.

        My dear I pleading with you, not to let go of the work that you are called to do in the Name of Jesus Christ–our work is so that those who like the ones who gives the thumbs down for whatever reason will not be able to say–“I did not know”. They would be doing themselve a great favor to take heed and to desire repentance in Jesus Christ.

        For every one of us is destined for our rewards, at the time of God’s judgment whether it be for the darkness of hell or for the bright days of Paradise–we have to know this now, because there no privilege for change on the other side of the grave.

        I hope that people are not thinking that they can go to that judgment seat with the: “I don’t what will happen there” God will judge me; for that happening will be tragic! That is the reason God has ordained people like you and me in this world–He does want people to suffer that tragic judgment. Blessings to all!

      • August 27, 2012

        Correction, once more

        Part of my third paragraph should read: “Those who continue to give me thumbs down are they who enslaved or possessed by a carnal mind in them, they cannot comprehend the things of God”

    There’s a saying “those who live by the gun, die by the gun” I knew Falcon , he was in and out off jail, always in trouble with the law. Nonetheless, he should’nt have died in that way, our youths now a-days cant setle a dispute without using a knife. Now what one has to go to some activities with a knike in his pocket? This is asking for trouble. Gone a the days when 2 guys would fight using their hands , then after the fight they would probably shake each other’s hand, now u dont see that, its a knife, a gun or a sissors to settle disputs.

      @ 4u2c

      It is sad that another lost his life during an argument. Yes! It is ignorance to argue and over what and then kill someone over it. What type of person is he who lost his temper and stabbed and killed him? Is this the manner to treat another? I am informing you, it is that of someone who possesses a wicked heart and who allowed his bad temper to overcome him to the extent of murdering another and as you stated a family member. Those who are devoid of the blessing and grace of God will not hesitate to commit such a crime.

      • August 25, 2012

        @Justice and Truth

        I struggle with your attitude of bold judgment to everyone or every situation as you claim to have all the answers:

        For example you write to the person identified as 4u2c: “I am informing you, it is that someone who possesses a wicked heart and who allowed his bad temper to overcome him to the extent of murdering another” That information is too “wordy” as well.

        Nonetheless, why the bold assurance about the person who did the killing? How do you know that it wasn’t a killing of self defense? How do you know that the person who died did not have a weapon as well–but I would imagine that he did.

        I wish you would share you opinion with people, by speaking about the news article itself, and less with your responding to every comment, as you label all of us according to your own judgment–you do that to me as well! That habit or attitude of yours is full of pride, arrogance, and or self conceit–Just look at your final statement below:

        “Those who are devoid of the blessing and grace of God, will not hesitate to commit such crime”.

        How do you know this to be a “Truth?” Did God not save Moses’ Life when he was only a baby, through the hands of the daughter of the King who wanted all the sons of the Hebrew people dead, from 2 years and under? Yes, He did!

        And why did God save Moses Life as a baby? Was it not because He would call Moses to deliver His people from the bondage of slavery in Egypt? Yes, that was so!

        But did Moses not kill a man of his own people, which was the reason he escape to the exact place where God called him to service? Yes, he did!

        And so, did God changed His mind about Moses after He killed that fellow man of his own people? No, He did not!

        So God kept His blessings upon Moses, so that He would do wonders, for His people, through Moses; and so He did, didn’t He? Yes, He did!

        That is why I would suggest that you stop talking as if you know God and His Ways so perfectly, because I am sure that you don’t.

        Bear in your mind that self righteousness is a sin against God–a sin that makes it doer think that he or she is higher than God Himself–we are called to give God the glory, that is why at His time He will rebuke and chasten that condition in the people He loves. And now I rest my case!

    my deepest simpathy to both families but wat has happen did not happen for a reason because falcon was a troublesome boy. i hope this sends out a message to the young people out there that they must be very careful of wat u do to others.that is not the best way to solve our problems. we can make a report to the police,warn the person or simple ignoure the the person.oh lord help us. may ur soul rest in peace.

      You wrote that “Falcon was a troublesome boy”

      But the news article said that he was 38 years old. If we are still wandering with the mind of boys, at 38 years in Dominica, when exactly do we put on the mind of men?

      Could that be the reason for the toil and strife we have in Dominica? Grown men and women acting like boys and girls, while the boys and girls in reality are doing their do–just the same way?

    To those saying that the dead guy was a menace to society , this does not give the other guy right whatsoever to kill him, if being a menace to society require someone taking another life, well watch out Dominicans this killing and stabbing will continue cause there are many people who are menace to society in Dominica

    Killing in DA right now is a sport, because those committing these crimes know that there will be no justice and that there is no justice for victims in Dominica

      It is obvious that some people know nothing about love and in the true sense of the word. If there was love, the man would not have been stabbed and died from the wounds, inflicted on him by the other. It is so very sad.

      1 Corinthians 13:1:13 – The Way of Love – But I shall show you a still more excellent way.

      If I speak in human and angelic tongues, but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy, and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge, if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast, but do not have love. I gain nothing.

      Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is not jealous. It is not pompous. It is not inflated. It is not rude. It does not seek its own interests. It is not quick-tempered. It does not brood over injury. It does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…So faith, hope, love remain, these three, but the greatest of these is Love.

      1 John 4:16 – We must seek Love at its source, in and from God. For “God is Love.”

      This explains L-O-V-E exactly as it is and meant to be, as the Lord ordained. Love, in thoughts, words and deeds and over the Internet. You can read the rest of this passage in your Holy Bible.
      As St. Paul said, “Not I but the Lord” who said it. You know that St. Paul spoke through the inspiration of The Holy Spirit.

    Honestly that area in Dam Marigot has always be a rather undesirable spot..

    The Grown household owners have been rather reluctant about making that area a well represented part of that village have past their on numerous times and the conduct that goes on their i can’t believe..and the interesting thing is that these home owners and grown adults proclaim to be “CHRISTIANS/REGULAR CHURCH GOERS”

    Its says alot about the Society and folks who know better what they allow and stand for…

    We often wonder why Dominica is a lack lustre place but the facts of the matter is that our citizens are extremely weak and have drop off standards that they grew with, so the incident is wrong but..when you do a deep tracking of the root cause it points head and toe and the upholding Residents in that area in DAM MARIGOT..

      They have a Member of Parliament who represents them and should know about the goings-on in that area. He/she should do something about it. This is what politicians who represent their constituents do to make such areas, trouble spots a better and safer place to live.
      As for you, I hope you live a godly life. Usually, the pot calls the kettle black. People like to look at others and criticize but they never look at themselves and what is occurring in their household and in their vicinity. Know that people are not perfect and they are weak of spirit. No exception Christians. The church-goers are not perfect people. I like to say, some more so than others. Do not point a finger at them. If you reside in that area or in close proximity of it, you should do something about helping them clean it up. Inform the Member of Parliament about it.

        Truth and Justice writes: “As for you I hope you live a godly life”. Usually, the pot calls the kettle black. People like to look at others and criticize but they never look at themselves bla bla bla” Such a piece of rudeness and insult!

        And why is this necessary in response to the person’s comment? Why do you think that the person is comfortable to read this from you, pertaining to his or her comment? Once again I say that this is pure self-conceit, rudeness, and insulting as well!

        If you had understood, ingest and digest, the message of the apostle Paul, at 1st Corinthians 13, as you stated it above, you would understand that the person under the control of Love is not pompous; Love does not motivate its possessor to speak rudeness to others–as you have spoken to the person’s comment above.

        That is the reason I know that you do not understand God and His ways, because you do not know Him. And there are many like you, that is the reason God has said: “These people honor with their lips but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me teaching as doctrines the commandments of men Mark 7: 6-7 Once again I rest my case

      You are one miserable person who depicts that you do not love Dominica and lack confidence in it and those whom you criticize. Are you a Dominican? Dominica has its problems but it is still a good country. As long as there are good people in it, those who also practice their Christian faith, it is still good. God is not finished with Dominica yet. He never will and not until the end of the world. What Dominicans near and far must do is to fervently pray for their country, their government, other politicians,other nationals of the country as also criminals. How well are doing in this case?
      It is said, “God governs the world but prayer governs God.” I like to say, to move his hands to action. You should leave the government out of it. You may wish to post your personal and business profile for us to know who you are and what you are doing, you who love to criticize Dominica and the government. Our Lord said, “Let he who is without sin caste the first stone” and “First pull out the splinter in your eye and then you can do so for others.” This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
      God bless you Morehei. May he also grace you to cease your derogatory types of criticisms which are an ill-wind that blows nobody any good and not even you.

      @ Humility

      Some of you make some strange, ungodly statements which are obviously imbedded in your heart and mind. You have swayed from the truth.
      You mention the Most Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Holy Scriptures teaches us, “Do not depend on your own understanding but on God…” What do you know about what is contained in Holy Scripture which is the Word and Teaching of Our Lord and that of the disciples?
      The Third Commandment of God is: Remember Thou Keep Holy the Sabbath Day.
      Do you not know the Ten Commandments of God? How could you say, you do not mean church – going to church. You have been falsely indoctrinated or did you take it upon yourself to conclude this. You made a grave error. It is a sin to preach and teach what which is false. You lack godly blessing, graces and enlightenment.
      You call yourself humility? If you had one bit of humility in you, you would not make the statement, “I did not say church.” What do you mean that, you did not say church? What do you have against the church? If you hate the Church and speak ill of it, you hate Our Lord Jesus Christ for it is His Church. You surely hurt the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
      What are you preaching? This is false teaching. It is imperative that all those who turn to Jesus Christ, who recognize Him as Our Lord, King and Savior of the world must go to church as members of a congregation, assembly. It is mandatory on Sundays which is the Sabbath and other holy days of the year. You may not be a Catholic Christian or you were once one and you have fallen away from It. This is the day that Our Lord chose that we will worship Him in His Church. We can do on other days if time permits but Sunday is the day of worship, a day of obligation.
      There will be no short-cuts to the Heart of Our Lord. You have a spiritual problem. You cannot turn to Jesus Christ and not go to church. I always say that if Our Lord did not want us to go to church, he would not have left us a church. In addition, people need the Lord as much as they need His Church. Make no mistake about that.
      Hebrews 10:24:25 – We must consider to rouse one another to love and good works. We should not stay away from our assembly, as is the custom of some; but encourage one another, and this all the more, as you see the day drawing near.
      It is in the Bible! I hope you learn something from this.
      St. Paul said, “Humble yourself before the Lord that, He may exalt you in due time.”
      Humility is not merely a word. It means much more than a word or calling oneself by that name.
      Let me further inform you. Satan cannot genuflect. Since he was thrown out of Heaven due to his arrogance, disobedience, pride and rebelliousness, he cannot genuflect. Only those who genuinely love God, worship Him and are humble can genuflect especially in a Church.
      There are a lot of people like you who do not know that. Therefore, when I read such ignorance and of Holy Scripture and what God expects of us, I cannot help but do my utmost to correct you. I humbly state that I do not do this on my own but from His inspiration. God grants enlightenment. May He do the same for you to comprehend that “If you worship Our Lord Jesus Christ, you must go to church.”
      The Church is His House, His Palace – The House of God. We go to church to worship Him in spirit, physically and in truth. We receive His blessings and graces when we make the effort to go to Church. We project to God that we are sinners, imperfect people, we need His forgiveness and overall we need Him. If we do not go to Church on Sundays we commit a mortal sin – The Third Commandment of God. Genuinely humble, Christians will know this and will not teach otherwise. I reiterate that it is a sin, an offence against God to teach against going to Church and on a Sunday, the Lord’s Day. It is the Christian Sabbath.

      • August 28, 2012

        @Truth and Justice

        The person identified as “Humility” has spoken the “TRUTH”. You do not understand that “Truth” because it is not in you.

        Humility, emphasized his or her sentiment by saying “I don’t mean Church” because in the fist place, most people think of the Church as a “building”. They crowd up that certain building of their particular day of worship–and they “go away without leave” from Monday to Saturday–what good is that for our sleeping or dead soul within us?

        Also Jesus is not making a “Bride” of the building, where people go to worship Him, He is preparing His chosen people to be His Bride–that is who the Church is supposed to be.

        It is true that as God’s chosen people–the Church–we need to join together as Church families, to worship God and to fellowship with fellow Christians in our family group. But how much “truth” is in our worship and fellowship, since the majority of us do not understand that concept of “Spirit and Truth”

        If you were thinking of yourself as the Church, whom you are called to be as a believer in Jesus Christ, you would easily embrace the message of Humility–for I am sure that he or she is not suggesting that people do not attend Church, he or she is saying that the the Blood of Jesus Christ is the only aspect for the cause of Life and reconciliation to the Almighty God, Eternal Spirit, the God of Love in Truth and Holiness, whom Jesus called Father, when He was here on earth.

        Jesus once said to the High priests and other Jewish leaders, who accused Him of doing work on the Sabbath Day: “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” Mark 2 :27.

        In other words, we Christian who are called to do the work of nurses, doctors, Fire-workers, Policemen and many others; we cannot accommodate Sunday, as our special day of worship and fellowship because of our work schedule–Jesus is allowing us to use any day that is suitable for us as our Sabbath day–the truth is that we are called to worship God everyday–that is through personal Love relationship with Him.

        Also Jesus told us that He “did not come to destroy the Law, but that He came to fulfilled it”. This means that in Jesus Christ, God accepts our obedience to the Law, that He might save us from punishment, because as human beings we cannot obey the Law to His satisfaction–unless we are complete with the Mind of Love.

        That is why we ought to know that religion is the works of goodness, but we cannot have salvation and reconciliation without our assurance of the Blood of Jesus Christ, because of what He has done for us.

        As I read that message from Humility, I know that he or she is indeed part of the Body of Jesus Christ, so am I–that is who the Church is–not those who gather in a building doing the things of religion–which are man-made rules and laws. Those rules and laws do not teach us to know God, and so, they cannot save us.

        Salvation and reconciliation to God Almighty, comes through our faith in the Blood of Jesus Christ.

    It was Just a few weeks ago that i visited home and I told falcon a childhood friend to change his life. I think we need to pray that the curses on these young people’s lives be broken. We see them behaving badly, and our usual reaction is to focus on them, but i believe there is something spiritual about the types of behaviours being exhibited by people on a whole these days. I beg that the church review it’s mandate and serve people in a more spiritual fashion than what is obvious toady.

        Yes and when others comment about it, there are some who criticize them and call them ignorant and other names. Those people are beyond comprehending the situation. At this age, the man should have been doing something beneficial for himself and his future. Some people never grow up.
        It is a sad situation that he went to his death and his eternal judgment in that manner. If only we knew where the soul is or that such souls would return to tell us, then it will be proven to the skeptics and deniers of God that God does exist and inform us where the soul is but this will never be.
        Our Lord gave a parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. He will not allow them to cross over to even warn us for as he said, “We were told and they still may not believe”. We have to live in godliness and wait for the day, “Wait on the Lord.”

      @ Dominican

      The first thing some people do is to blame the church. Do not blame the church. Blame people who have ceased going to church, who do not want to go to church and who criticize the church for their shortcomings. Note the man’s age. He was not a child. I am certain he was baptized and was once attending church. As some of them grow up they cease going to church due to their lifestyle. They are at fault. Put the blame where it belongs.
      God gave us a free mind and will. They have used their free mind and will to cease going to church, to live their life as they pleased. Then they associate with bad company and find themselves in trouble.
      When people give up God this is what can happen to them. He has gone to his eternal judgment. Only God and this soul know where it is.
      I hope that the Dominican youths take note and govern themselves accordingly. It is another lesson for them, if only they will pay heed.

Yetevery so often we hear of the Timothy McVeighs’, etc etc. That is not the only way to order society. It has to be a combination of spiritual reawakening, approppriate legislation that could serve as effective deterrent (death penalty, quick action inthe courts), family life, equipping the law enforcement agencies, counselling, jobs, good roel models, a reordering of society to reflect love and tolerance for each other and of course strong leadership at every level of society. No need to point fingers at anyone now. The proverbial horse has already bolted from the stable. It is crisis time. Dominica need all of its expertise to help combat that youthful and restless violence scourge.

      I feel you bro, but killing one because he killed is still killing. The penalty for those who commit such crimes should be at least “LIFE IN PRISON” without any chances of parole. Taking ones life is inhumane. Yes, these criminals continue to kill because the punishment is too minimal. How can one take one’s life and his punishment is a few days in jail? After all, it’s like the other life was worthless. SEVERE punishment will ultimately reduce crime. Punishment for those who committed minor crimes are more severe than that of those who KILL.
