Article name : Teen in 'online rant' charged with 3 offences
Published date : 1 April 2015
This article is about Amos Yee Pang Sang, a 16 year old, who got charged for attacking Christianity, transmitting an obscene image, and posting an online video of Mr Lee that offended people who viewed it. He also had to undertake an additional condition that while the case is ongoing, he is to not post of upload any comments or contents online. On the other hand, his father took the opportunity to apologise to PM Lee Hsien Loong on behalf of Amos Yee
As the writer did not express his point of view, I will talk about my point of view instead. It was stated in the article that Amos Yee Pang Sang's father apologised to PM Lee Hsien Loong for this incident. I felt very pissed off when I read about this as I felt that this was more of Amos Yee's fault than the father. It was unreasonable that the father was apologising instead of his son who was the one at fault. At the same time, I also felt that Singapore's way of dealing with such cases (jail and fine) is very good as I find it very effective. In conclusion, I feel that Amos Yee's act is wrong and should be punished by the law.
