This thread discusses the Content article: Super-prison threatens Hei Ling ChauIn my point of view, the Hong Kong Government is extremely stupid and stubborn in insisting to build a Super Prison in Hei Ling Chau. I have the following points of views : – It’s difficult to maintain the security of such a large scale prison – It’s endanger the wild life in Hei Ling Island and the seas nearby – It’s a extreme waste of money especially when the budget of the government is still in red
[Edited in 2008: happily, the plan for the prison was abandoned]
Yes, stupid and stubborn seem the words for the govt regarding this project (and more besides, perhaps).
Some 218 people have signed petition here against the super prison; many adding pointed comments.
Not one person has emailed, or posted message in this forum, saying they believe the super prison is a good idea (legislator Raymond Ho and others likely don’t visit sites like this!)
