Issue being discussed here is that 16 year old boy, Amos Lee, posted a video on YouTube named " Lee Kuan Yew is finally dead ". The video went viral. He was being disrespectful towards the late Mr Lee and the Christians. He was then brought to court and was charged with 3 offences. His father apologises to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on behalf of his son. 

I find that this teenager is being very disrespectful. He should never insult the founding father of our nation, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He gave up his life for us to build the nation. We could say that without him, Singapore will not be where we are now, we could still be a fishing village rather than a first world country now. He compared Mr Lee to Jesus and made very insulting comments. These actions from him is very undesirable. We could have trace back to the past. Without Mr Lee's hard work and contribution, Amos Lee would not have such a skilled ways of speaking, Amos Lee is being very unappreciative. One should never insult others religion. No matter which religion we are in, we should always respect other religions too. Even though Amos Lee could be a atheist, he should never ever made rude comments on the God and Christianity. Probably he thinks that all his actions will only affect him, however this comes with great consequences. Firstly, he will be sued and jailed. Secondly, his education and future will be affected. Thirdly, this will bring disgrace to his parents and his family. His parents will be utmost disappointed and hurt by him. Amos should learn to think before he speaks. He does not seem regretful at all when leaving the court. He is still smiling and waving to the cameras. I sincerely hope that he will reflect upon his actions during the period that he will be punished for his actions.

  1. I agree with you that this teen is very disrespectful, he should not be so rude to our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. He devoted his whole life to build our nation, Mr lLee is also older than this teenager so I think even if he does not appreciate what Mr Lee had done for us, he should at least have the basic courtesy to respect the elders. He even insulted Christians, singapore is multi religious country and this action will agitate many Christians, he should have respected other people's religion. I think this boy did this because he wanted to be famous, even when he was arested, he did not feel guilty but instead smiling at the camera happily. I feel that his parents should reprimand him, I really hope that he can reflect upon his actions.
