Article name: Amos Yee, who made insensitive remarks on Christianity in video, arrested
This article is about a boy name Amos Yee, 17 who was arrested by the Police due to his insensitive remarks about Christianity and our founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew in a video which was uploaded on Youtube. The video title is called 'Lee Kuan Yew is dead, finally'. He was happy that Mr Lee Kuan Yew is dead and not only did he criticize him in the youtube video, he even compared him with Jesus. Many people lodged police reports upon watching the video and at least 20 police reports were lodged.
I think that what Amos Yee did was seriously unacceptable. In the video, he even challenged Mr Lee Hsien Loong to sue him. His act of actions insulted most people, especially Christians. I understand that everyone have their own views and it was their freedom to say things they want. However, what Amos Yee said offended many people. He should really reflect on his words and actions. Even if he is really not happy with Mr Lee Kuan Yew, he should not even post his comments on youtube for everyone to see. It is quite disappointing to know that during the national mourning period, there are still people who want to change the atmosphere and creates more troubles. To him, Mr Lee Kuan Yew did not does anything that really earned our respect. However, I hope that he can think in another point of view. Without Mr Lee Kuan Yew, I do not think that he will even be there posting videos, criticizing others. The things that Mr Lee Kuan Yew did is more than enough for us to respect him with pride. If Mr Lee Kuan Yew did not step out and sacrifice himself, Singapore might still even be a first world country. Amos Yee should really think for others first before doing anything that are very sensitive and will hurt others. Even though he is only 17, I believed that the charges he will face can still be harsh, or he can even be jailed. Many people are now very angry with him and thus, I does not think that people will mind if the judges change the policies just for him. Amos Yee also caused his parents to be ashame. In the video, he also showed how his parents educated him to become such a person. He should think for his parents and not make them disappointed and angry at the same time.
