It was a good harmless prank with a dig at the government who obviously did not share the same humour.
Now everyone is worried that the police will throw the book hard at Sticker Lady, who would be liable to a maximum fine of SGD 2000 or a prison sentence of up to 3 years AND caning.
This brings up memories of Michael Fay who was caned for spray painting cars back in 1994.
I hope the judge presiding over this case is a wise one and can see the humour in it and perhaps sentence a slap on the wrist and move on.
If I were the judge, I would sentence Sticker Lady to a Corrective Work Order where she will have to remove all the stickers and the road markings. At most a symbolic fine BUT DEFINITELY no jail nor caning.
I really appreciate this particular street art and perhaps the National Arts Council and perhaps even the National Heritage Board and or National Library Board can archive this?
This is certainly a great idea but perhaps it took place at the wrong time. I think this would be a fabulous street installation during the Singapore Arts Festival.
I would like to go on record that I support the Sticker Lady and appeal to the Government to lighten up and let this slide.
