The White Rose Social Care Association will take to the streets to call for the government to more forcefully enforce capital punishment and ensure better protection for younger generations on Sunday afternoon, about two weeks after the brutal random killing of a four-year-old girl in Neihu, Taipei on March 28.
The association has called on adults to wear black clothes, children to wear white clothes, and everyone to hold a white rose in their hands for the gathering on Ketagalan Boulevard in front of the Presidential Office at 2 p.m.
The activity is to spur the government to enforce the current laws, to give death penalty to those who deserve it and carry out without any delays, the association said.
The association said that Taiwan is neither in a good position to abolish capital punishment nor has enough budgets to “civilize” those who deserve a death sentence. The association also called for capital punishment for drug lords and life imprisonment without parole for those who are convicted of committing serious crimes after taking drugs. [FULL STORY]
