Man gets 3 weeks' jail for slapping blogger Amos Yee
In this article, a man, Neo Ghim Huah, was sentenced to 3 weeks jail after slapping Amos Yee outside the state courts last month. He explained in court that he wanted to teach Amos Yee a lesson as he found him disrespectful to Mr Lee Kuan Yew in the video he had posted. He restrained himself but he confronted Amos Yee in his third court appearance. He deliberately committed the offence as he wanted the assault to be publicized so that the world would know he was being taught a lesson.
What the man did was wrong and he should not have slapped Amos Yee. I know that he may have done it due to the anger he had of Amos Yee disrespecting our founding father, but the victim should be taught a lesson through the law, and he was too rash. However, the actions of Mr Neo also shows how he deeply respects Mr Lee Kuan Yew and I feel that everyone should be like him and be grateful for what Mr Lee Kuan Yew has done for us to be where we are now.
