I tot of Amos, wondering how he is

In Uncategorized on 06/12/2018 at 5:05 am

A seven-year-old boy who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube’s highest-earning star, raking in $22m (£17.3m).

[…]

Asked by NBC why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan – who is now eight – replied: “Because I’m entertaining and I’m funny.”

Since the channel was set up by Ryan’s parents in March 2015, its videos have had almost 26 billion views and amassed 17.3 million followers.

Forbes said all but $1m of the $22m total is generated by advertising shown before videos, with the remainder coming from sponsored posts.

Reminder, earlier this yr:

YouTube has taken down Amos Yee’s channel. Yee, a Singapore blogger and content creator who recently fled to the US for political asylum,  announced the news of his YouTube shut down on his Facebook, adding that his channel was taken down due to his pro-pedophilia views.

The move followed after a trade organisation, the US Toy Association, pulled its ads from YouTube after one of its campaigns were found on Yee’s channel, BBC reported. According to SCMP, the ad ran on a playlist called “paedophilia is life” on Yee’s channel.  Prior to the removal, Yee’s account had around 40,000 subscribers, the SCMP report added.

A YouTube spokesperson confirmed to Marketing that Yee’s videos and channel were terminated because it violated YouTube’s content community guidelines. It was not in reaction to brand safety.

Currently, YouTube’s Community Guidelines explicitly prohibit any type of activity that sexualises minors. This policy has always been in place, the spokesperson said. The specific policy states: “Uploading, commenting, or engaging in any type of activity that sexualises minors will immediately result in an account termination.”

Goh Meng Seng and these other clowns must be ashamed that they support his right to sprout  pro-pedophilia views. Will Roy, Meng Seng and s/o JBJ help Amos now?

Laments of a TRE cybernut

In Humour on 01/08/2018 at 10:49 am

Have a good laugh

Rabble-rouser:

Change what? 70% have spoken as a majority preferring to be under the horrible PAP rule.
1. JB Jeyaretnam already died on 30/9/2008, almost a decade ago. He died in vain
2. Chiam See Tong is already suffering from old age; out of Parliament & Potong Pasir SMC. He fought in vain
3. Dr Chee Soon Juan is impotent – can’t even get elected to Parliament because Bukit Baton residents preferred PAP stooge, Murali. He can’t even get out of the starting gate.
4. WP is a silent party – contented with collecting $16/Mth for each MP until the next GE. Isn’t they a PAP Lite party?
5. Vocal critics like Roy Ngerng, Amos Yee, Han Hui Hui have given up fighting & left our shores. Nobody supported them but criticised them instead.
6. Since the 1990s when SDP won 3 seats, the opposition had not made much headway because the S’poreans are too “chicken schit” & too selfish to vote for change.
7. Opposition parties is too fragmented & selfish only care for their own agenda.
8. Those who can had already exited to overseas including PM LHL’s own brother LHY, those remaining are dying by the day continually trampled on by the million $ ministers.
9. The only way for change is a tumultuous event. Otherwise S’pore is an event horizon – a point of no return (ie. drifting into a void). In short, S’pore still stuck in the mud.
10. ‘Live it or leave it’ is typical of S’porean (Sinkies) mentality – you need to think out of the box but too many (70%) are simply stuck inside the box! A case of learned helplessness!

Ah Ha:
Love it or leave it because you are too chicken schit to change it!

Amos makes no promises about molesting landlord’s kids

In Uncategorized on 13/12/2017 at 11:05 am

Given his views on sex with children and child pornography, it’s strange that he’s not willing to giving assurances that his potential landlord’s kids are safe from his predations. This is doubly so given that he lost his previous accommodation because he was thought to be a clear and present danger to the children living in the shelter he was in: Will Roy, Meng Seng and s/o JBJ help Amos now?

And it’s so funny that he’s so demanding in what he wants in return for US$400 a month in rent especially in his preferred states of Califonia and New York

Amos Yee put this on FB

Super important message, I really need help:

If you’ve been following my Youtube channel you would know I’ve been kicked out of the house I had in Illinois for expressing controversial opinion #85. I need a new place to stay as soon as possible so if anyone in America can has a place to offer please contact me at amosyee@gmail.com. I am willing to pay $0-400 a month for that place (apparently I do make enough-ish on Youtube lol)

Requirements:

Whoever who owns the house be absolutely fine with me voicing controversial opinion #85 (Based on American law, me voicing controversial opinion #85 will not get me arrested or cause any people living with me (even if they’re kids) to receive any harassment in any way shape or form)

You don’t kick me out of the place whenever I voice a political opinion you disagree with (I am a non-violent, pro-free speech, anti-religious, vegan, politically far-left Anarchist/libertarian socialist/anarcho-communist)
Complete privacy – I can’t hear you at all, I can speak at talking volume 24/7, and I can occasionally do shouting noises during the day for some scenes in my videos.

Walking distance (0-5 min walk) from food stores. If you have a bike I can use, then 0-5 min biking distance. Basically, I should be able to eat out without a car (Because I don’t have a driver’s license yet) in 5-10 min.

Blank, non-intrusive walls/backgrounds where I can film my videos in front of which has enough distance between me infront of the background and a spot where I can place a camera on a tripod filming me.

Chairs, tables, Wifi, Fridge, plates + utensils for use, washing machine, dryer + other basic house utilities

When you email me, please provide the place’s state, a general description of the place, how much rent you’re charging me to stay there, the address of the place (if comfortable at that point), the nearest airport to the house + your name and your contact no (if comfortable). I will reply to your email if interested and we’ll skype to confirm details.

I am currently in Minnesota sleeping on a couch owned by modern-day hippies (Yeah it’s a depressing story how I got here, I don’t want to talk about it now). This couch does not fulfill most of the requirements I listed above and is obviously not an ideal place for me to stay long-term. I’ll pick the new place I want based on how much the airplane fare is to get there, if I’m comfortable with the host, the price of the place, how cool the state is (My favorites are California and New York), if the place meets the requirements above etc.

I hope to find a new place as soon as possible so I can continue working on my Youtube videos in peace (And rest assured friends my Youtube channel will cover a wealth of different topics in the future (How horrible Singapore is, religion, SJWs, immigration etc.) and will not be completely devoted to controversial opinion #85). Once again if anyone can provide a place for me do contact me as soon as possible at amosyee@gmail.com so we can skype and confirm details. Thanks alot for your help

What will the people pictured below do to help Amos? If he isn’t helped, he’ll spend Christmas on the mean streets of Chicago in winter.

Amos the Fabulous has been told to leave his present lodgings by 21 December because there are young children also living in the same place. His views on sex with children and child pornography have led to concerns that he could be a clear and present danger to the children.

He has asked for someone to give him another place to live in. Maybe Goh Meng Seng will offer his private jet?

Amos in the land of the free

In Uncategorized on 02/12/2017 at 11:24 am

Update on 3 December at 2.45pm: Amos has posted that he has to vacate his present lodgings by 21 DEcember because the authorities don’t want him near young children because of his views on child sex. He’s asking for help to live in the nearest 5-star hotel. OK, I made up the 5-star bit.

Amos learns about the environment in which “freedom of expression” opeates in the land where the buffalo roam . While he has freedom of expression, people can express their disagreement or disgust by barring him from public forums: he’s been KPKBing that that’s what happening. They can even threaten to kill him.

Yee has received harsh criticism and even death threats after posting three videos on the topic, on 15, 17 and 20 November, entitled Why Pedophilia Is Alright, Don’t Discriminate Pedophiles, and Free Speech for the Pedophile respectively.

The Idiots S’pore

And the death threats are “no play play” because in the land of the free where the buffalo roam the freedom to carry and use arms are other freedoms.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Mother Mary wears black by this time next year. His ang moh tua kee allies may want to consider buying him a bullet-proof vest for Christmas.

Amos got point on Christianity and Islam

In Uncategorized on 19/11/2017 at 7:08 am

Amos didn’t say this, but he could have.

Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus. There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here, maybe just a little bit unusual.

Amos is well known for being relaxed about child sex, and for attacking Islam and our dearly beloved Harry. In the process, it has been widely forgotten that he also attacks Christianity and the above would have right up his street.

No it wasn’t Amos but this was said by Jim Zeigler, the Alabama State Auditor, to the Washington Examiner,  the BBC reports that Jim Zeigler is a Christian. He was defending another Christian who has been accused of trying to have sex with teenagers. The other Christian who denies the allegations, wants to be a US senator for Alabama, a US state full of Christians. He’s the favourite to win, really.

One really cannot blame Amos for dissing Christianity with Christians like these, just like one fault Amos for dissing Islam.

Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in Tuesday’s deadly New York City truck attack “appears to have been inspired by violent Isis videos depicting beheadings and shootings, according to prosecutors,” reports the Guardian.

The incident is strongly reminiscent of recent terror attacks in Europe, where vehicles were used as effective weapons against unarmed crowds. In France, 86 people were killed and more than 400 injured by a single lorry near the seafront at Nice, in 2016. In Berlin, 12 were killed and more than 50 injured by a similar attack last December. Vehicles have also been used to plough into crowds in London and in Barcelona …

a publication produced by IS suggested to its supporters living in the West that they use their cars to run over civilians.

Does Amos support child pornography?

In Uncategorized on 15/11/2017 at 11:09 am

Someone asked on Facebook if it was true that Amos supports child pornography.

He received this very thoughtful reply from a Khush Chopra an NUS graduate who also studied at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and École nationale des ponts et chaussées

Khush Chopra From the video here, the age of consent not child pornography seems to be the issue. In the land of the *brave and free* Famous Amos wisened to the fact that not all free speech is acceptable. A much more contemplative, somewhat mature and remarkably non-vulgar Amos reels at the stinging disappointment of his talk being cancelled but continued to stoutly defend his view on the age of consent for sex. He tries to explain that he is not advocating violence against children or pedophilia. Amos will nevertheless have to think hard about his views and do a much better job at justifying them more carefully. This is a another real lesson that he will hopefully learn from.

https://youtu.be/qc9oVlZu_V8

I dedicate this piece to Passerby.

Btw, I still think he lost his invitation by a Harvard students’ club (not Harvard College as alleged by the cybernuts), not because of his views, but because he asked them for his airfare and for accommodation at a five-star hotel. He said travelling by Greyhound bus and staying in a student dormitory was beneath him.

Amos the stupid

In Uncategorized on 11/11/2017 at 1:15 pm

Amos Yee: “But to me, it’s very important that I lead the kind of life I want and do the things I love, a part-time job that takes hours off your day ruins that. The feeling of ‘shamelessness’ on relying on others for money is much more worth making half your life or more of your life miserable, at least for me.”

Well he should have sought asylum in a Nordic country where the state will make sure he won’t starve if he doesn’t work.

The US may be the “Land of the free, where the buffalo roam” but it ain’t very generous to those not willing to work.

But doubtless Mother Mary will send money. But the TRE cybernut rats and their ang moh tua kee allies will only send their love.

 

Amos: Will he pay the ultimate cost of free speech?

In Uncategorized on 29/09/2017 at 7:30 am

S’poreans who are the PAP cousins of the TRELand cybernuts are foaming at the mouth in cyberspace because Amos has got asylum in the US, and worse that he’ll soon be a guest at the White House way ahead of our tudung wearing Hali, the PAP’s president: after all Trump and Amos share similar views on Muslims.

Meanwhile the TRE cybernuts at happy at these things happening.

Taking a chance on trash is what makes America Great

Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO and and an immigrant makes an interesting observation about immigration to the US.

“I don’t want us to be only talking about high-skilled immigration. There’s one other quality the United States has, which is a real currency in the world, and that’s being a bastion of hope for all the people who need it most. Both of those need to be reserved in any immigration policy that we come up with.”

 a bastion of hope for all the people who need it most: The willingness of the US to take in a foul-mouth, draft dodger like Amos is what makes America Great. It’ll take the chance that he may turn out to be just a foul-mouth, draft dodging bum. It’ll take this risk because he really believed that America is the land of the free.

———————————–

As all indications are that he’s in the Chicago area, I tot the following would cheer the PAP cousins of the TRE cynernuts, and worry the TRE cybernuts.

The estimated number of violent crimes in the nation increased for the second consecutive year, rising by 4.1% in 2016 compared with 2015, driven by increases in Baltimore, Chicago and Las Vegas, said the FBI. The number of murders rose by 8.6% to an estimated 17,250 murders nationwide last year. Chicago, the nation’s third-biggest city, accounted for 22% of the nationwide increase with 765 murders last year, more than the number of murders in the largest city, New York (334), and the second-largest, Los Angeles (294), combined. The vast majority of these killings happened in five mostly black and Latino neighbourhoods on the south and west side where only 9% of the 2.7m city lives.

https://www.economist.com/blogs/democracyinamerica/2017/09/neighbourhood-watch

And given that he’s penniless, he’s likely to live in the “five mostly black and Latino neighbourhoods on the south and west side where only 9% of the 2.7m city lives”.

So he’d better get his ass to a safer city.

But as the stats quoted above show, the US is a lot more dangerous place than S’pore for a foul-mouth draft dodger. At most he gets locked up here; in the land of the free he might be gunned down at any time for exercising his constitutional right to offend others, or for just being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Back to the PAP cousins of the other TRELand cybernuts. I wouldn’t be surprised if they now are praying to the 9th Immortal that Amos gets killed by a gun toting red-neck or Islamic terrorist.

Amos:11 months in US jail, and still counting

In Uncategorized on 06/09/2017 at 4:54 am

SgDaily’s Buzzfeed story (from March) reminded me that Amos has spent 11 months in a US jail. And there’s still no end in sight.

Taking into consideration his jail time here, if he had done the right thing and gone into NS, he’d have 12 months more to go (and taz excluding leave).

What a born loser.

And taz not all. In jail he kanna robbed.

What an ass to believe that America is the land of the free for scroungers. He should have tried Europe but taz the trouble with a stupid boy. He didn’t research or analyse enough the topic. No wonder he’s a hero of the TRE cybernuts. Stupid people like stupid people.

M Ravi: Money talks BS walks

In Uncategorized on 23/07/2017 at 10:28 am

Update: $6,011 has been received (as of 2.23 p.m. 22 July) to help M Ravi to set aside the foreclosure of his HDB flat

Here I reported that Uncle Leong had asked for donations to help Ravi pay off the arrears on his HDB mortgage

Please help M Ravi as he may become homeless, when he comes out of the hospital.

I would like to appeal to 7,452 Singaporeans to give $1 to POSB Savings Account 032-00582-9 (account of 73 year old L. F. Violet Netto who is the joint owner of the HDB flat).

Glad to know that his supporters are not the same people who refuse to help TRE and a publisher who wants to “Make S’pore Literature Great”. But I wonder about those who were egging him on on FB? Were they among the donors?

Here’s what Amos Yee (Remember him?) thinks of those who talk cock, sing song but who are unwilling to help with cold hard cash:

Interesting that Amos has denounced his activist “supporters”; denouncing them for talking the talk but not walking the talk: the activist friends would have happily let him rot in remand, while pontificating to society on the harm that being in remand would do him.

It’s nice to know that not all S’poreans are as cheapskates as the TRE cybernuts and the ang moh tua kees.

Let’s salute the real S’poreans. They realise that in S’pore, superheroes need to pay their bills.

But will Ravi thank the donors? He was planning to challenge the legality of the mortgage, arguing that the constitution allowed him to default on his mortgage. His grandfather wrote the constitution  isit? Juz like parly belongs to his grandfather?

 

Amos: 7 months in US jail, 4 more to go at least

In Uncategorized on 04/07/2017 at 1:05 pm

I tot readers might want to take a break from Oxleygate and sneer, ridicule or laugh at Amos Yee.

OK, there’s a big difference between sneering, ridiculing or laughing at very privileged spoiled brats and PAP ministers, and one of their pleb “victims”. But one can grow tired of abalone and suckling pig, and go for cold porridge and kiam chye for a change.

Amos Yee’s poatings are not by him but by people sympathetic to him. Ah well there are loonies born every day. Juz look at M Ravi.

Although Amos has won his case for political asylum in the US, the prosecutor [Chief Consul: Karen E. Lundgren, Assistant Chief Consul: Elizabeth Crites] appealed the case. Meaning, even though Amos has already been in American jail for 5 months, he has to stay in jail for another 6 more months until the judge makes a decision on the appeal. Amos was on suicide watch in the jail hole for the past 2 weeks.

So by the end of the process, he’ll have spent 11 months in an US jail and about a month in detention here. Still a good idea to dodge NS the Amos Way, Mother Mary? Especially as his asylum application could still be rejected.

Did he get the book he wanted?

Amos is still needlessly in prison because the government continues to challenge the court ruling that granted his political asylum. The government’s decision to continue to incarcerate him weighs heavily on his spirits as he continues to fight against the enduring stress of his imprisonment in the US and the trauma from his imprisonment in Singapore. Amos has found comfort reading books that his supporters have sent him over the weeks. Amos has requested Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam‘s book “Make it right for Singapore: Speeches in Parliament, 1997-1999” in solidarity with those who have been unjustly persecuted by their governments. Amos extends his solidarity to those around the world who fight against authoritarian regimes. From Raif Badawi in Saudi Arabia, to WikileaksJulian Assange in the UK, to Liu Xiaobo in China, to Edward Snowden in Russia, I stand with you.

The US government still hasn’t released Amos Yee despite Amos’s asylum being approved by Judge Samuel B Cole. We suspect that the Singaporean government might have a role in interfering in a US court’s ruling that the Singaporean government acted against Amos in bad faith and that Amos should be granted political asylum. As a result of Amos’s numerous prolonged stays in detention his psychological health is suffering. In the US, Amos has been placed twice in solitary confinement.

On the first occasion he was in solitary confinement for 2 weeks. According to Amos, he decided to attend a religious lecture with a visiting Imam. During that lecture Amos challenged the Imam claiming that Muhammad had left many violent statements in the Quran. The Imam challenged him to prove it, Amos asked the Imam for the Quran so that he could show him the verses, the Imam called security on Amos where he was immediately placed into solitary confinement for 2 weeks.

On the second occasion that Amos was placed into solitary confinement it was after he was visited by a reporter. The reporter believed Amos to be suicidal, the proper authorities were notified of Amos’s situation, and he was then immediately placed on suicide watch for two weeks. During suicide watch Amos was placed in a small cell, he wasn’t allowed any cell mates, he wasn’t allowed access to the common areas, he wasn’t allowed to shower, and had numerous other privileges limited during that time.

Amos is currently out of suicide watch but his prolonged stay in jail is only making his situation even worse. Amos is suffering under great psychological stress. We are disappointed that immigration authorities under the Trump administration would not uphold our Western values of taking in persecuted political dissidents; our country was founded on these principles. We can only suspect interference by the Singaporean government as there would be no other legitimate reason for Amos to be detained for so long after being granted asylum by the court. All updates on Amos’s page are being made on his behalf by people working on Amos’s case.

Remember Mother Mary telling us that he was faking it when he looked “lost” when he got out of detention here and that his claims of feeling suicidal when inside were lies? Funny her post on this was removed.

PAP govt speaking? No ler North Korean minister

In Political governance, Public Administration on 06/05/2017 at 9:23 am

“We do not tolerate any others criticising our style of socialism and we believe in the choice we have made,” Mr Han replies.Vice-Foreign Minister Han Song-ryo.

“The masses are the centre of our state and their security and human rights are guaranteed.”

(BBC report earlier this year)

Err don’t the u/m from PAP administration on Amos the Fantastic really show that the views of the PAP administration and that of the N Korean administration are as teeth are to lips?

Seriously they show that often Silence is Golden and that it’as better to sit down and shut-up than appear to be like a product of Kim Jong Un.

Letter to the Economist

The law in Singapore

You imply that Amos Yee was prosecuted in Singapore for political dissent, and not for making vicious statements about Christians and Muslims (“No place for the crass”, April 1st). That is not true. In 2015 Mr Yee insulted Christians, saying Jesus Christ was “power hungry and malicious” and “full of bull”. In 2016 he said: “The Islamics seem to have lots of sand in their vaginas…But don’t mind them, they do after all follow a sky wizard and a paedophile prophet. What in the world is a ‘moderate Muslim’? A fucking hypocrite, that’s what!”

The Economist may agree with the American judge that such bigotry is free speech. But Singapore does not countenance hate speech, because we have learnt from bitter experience how fragile our racial and religious harmony is. Several people have been prosecuted for engaging in such hate speech.

Contrary to the suggestion in your article, Singapore’s laws on contempt do not prevent fair criticisms of court judgments, as the article itself demonstrates. Singapore’s court judgments, including on Mr Yee’s case, are reasoned and published, and can stand scrutiny by anyone, including The Economist.

FOO CHI HSIA

(Her 2015 letter)

And

MHA’s Comments on Amos Yee’s US Asylum Application
 1.     In 2015, Amos Yee was charged for engaging in hate speech against Christians.

 2.     He had said “Christians … are … power hungry and malicious but deceive others into thinking that they are compassionate and kind. Their impact and legacy will ultimately not last as more and more people find out that they are full of bull….. Similar to the Christian knowledge of the bible, and the work of a multitude of a priests.”

 3.     He was convicted on the charge. He was also convicted on another charge for publishing an obscene image. He was sentenced to a total of four weeks imprisonment for these charges.

 4.     In 2016, Yee was charged again for hate speech, this time against Muslims and Christians.

 5.     He had said “the Islamics seem to have lots of sand in their vaginas too…. But don’t mind them, they do after all follow a sky wizard and a pedophile prophet. What in the world is a ‘moderate muslim’? A f*****g hypocrite that’s what!……. With all due respect, Christians, you can shove that faith up your ass. Faith! Faith! I’d be damned at this retardation of humanity. F**k you, Christian shits”

 6.     He pleaded guilty to the charges, and was sentenced to six weeks imprisonment and a fine of $2000.

 7.     He was represented by counsel in both the 2015 and 2016 proceedings.

 8.     Yee had engaged in hate speech against Christians and Muslims.

 9.     The US adopts a different standard, and allows some such hate speech under the rubric of freedom of speech.

 10.    The US for example, in the name of freedom of speech, allows the burning of the Quran .

 11.    Singapore takes a very different approach. Anyone who engages in hate speech or attempts to burn the Quran, Bible, or any religious text in Singapore, will be arrested and charged.

 12.    The US Department of Homeland Security had opposed Yee’s asylum application, on the basis that Yee had been legitimately prosecuted.

 13.    It is the prerogative of the US to take in such people who engage in hate speech. There are many more such people, around the world, who deliberately engage in hate speech, and who may be prosecuted. Some of them, will no doubt take note of the US approach, and consider applying for asylum in the US.

 

Amos: 139 days in US jail and still counting

In Uncategorized on 30/04/2017 at 4:59 am

This is a riposte to the autistic cybernut who posted on TRE

 Yet Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

Singaporeans can also learn from Amos. Fight PAP outside Singapore and win big. He humiliated L*L and PAP and destroyed their credbility and legitimacy so effectively they have no valid response / counter-argument. Bravo Amos.

Win big? Huh?

By the end of today (US time), he’ll have spent 139 days in a US jail. Only another 590 days and he’ll be longer in a US jail than in NS if he had done the right thing. Actually if u throw in the 50 days detention here, he’ll only have 541 days to serve if he were doing NS.

As it is he’ll like be in jail for at least several more months given that he or the US can appeal whatever the decision of the appeal.

Wow what a born loser, being detained in the land of the free, where the buffalo roam. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person. Maybe Harry’s really the 9th Immortal.

Black Saturday: a great day to laugh at Amos’ stupidity

In Uncategorized on 15/04/2017 at 2:52 pm

Today is Black Saturday or Holy Saturday, a really sad day in the Church calender because Jesus died on Good Friday and was entombed on Saturday and his followers at the time didn’t know that he would be resurrected tomorrow, Easter.

So it’s a great day to sneer and laugh at Amos becauseby the end of today US time, Amos would have spent 124 days in jail in the land of the free, where the buffalo roam.

Add that to his jail time of 50 days here, he would have spent 174 days in custody.

What a born loser.

Most asylum seekers get thru US immigration and then when in legally apply for asylum. But Amos said he told immigration that he wanted asylum. So they locked him up until the hearing. He’s been inside since then.

Haha.

As a Facebook acquaintance said

Quite weird to see KJ equating Amos’s “persecution” with JBJ’s….kinda insulting to the memory of his father…

After all one was a lion of a man, the other a foul mouth brat. Ok both were full of themselves and LKY and the PAPpies would agree that both were nutty weirdos and subversives.

Still that doesn’t mean that Amos is like JBJ.

This is what KJ actually said (it’s a longish extract from a really long post (https://kenjeyaretnam.com/2017/03/26/my-first-hand-experience-of-amos-yees-asylum-hearing/) which is really worth a read.

My Personal Motivation

… there was something about Yee’s case in particular that struck a chord with me. Maybe it is because I also had a 16 year old son and I used to be a 16 year old boy myself. It was hard to see a child maltreated so horribly. Mostly though it was that his plight and the persecution he suffered, the way the Gvernment was unwilling to tolerate even a sliver of dissent and came down hard with spurious charges reminded me of the way they could not tolerate my father being in parliament. Again the vindictive and personal nature of the persecution stemming from anger at criticism of LKY reminded me of LKY’s vow to see JBJ on bended knee. Of course Amos Yee’s stubborn refusal to be bowed, to bend that knee in front of the altar of LKY, reinforced the link to JBJ in my mind.

I had already laughed my head off when Yee’s lawyer had said by video link that he was sure Amos would be grateful for my efforts. “No he won’t”, I replied when I stopped laughing. There is no point helping Amos if you are doing it for thanks or gratitude. Do I regret helping him? No, I am also elated but at the same time saddened that Amos had to flee to have a chance at a life and I am aware of how hard life is for an exile or a refugee. I do feel though that the judgement has vindicated my father and the political persecution he suffered all cleverly packaged and disguised as either civil suits brought by private persons or even trumped up fake charges of fraud. Even now Singapore refers to my father’s “criminal” conviction even though that conviction was found to be a grievous miscarriage of justice and a non-existent offence and was overturned by a higher court. Amos Yee like JBJ will forever be branded a criminal in his home country.

What do you think? Is s/o JBJ wrong in comparing dad to Amos? Or does he have a point?

Amos’ case again shows how cock S’poreans are

In Uncategorized on 29/03/2017 at 5:07 am

(Breaking news at 111.00am: Amos is really a born loser. US immigration is detaining Boy Fantastic necause it’s appealing. S/o JBJ is KPKBing. See below.

The anti-PAP cybernuts are using the immigration judge’s decision to gloat and sneer at the system that 70% of S’poreans voted for in free but unfair elections.

They should sit down and shut up.

Let’s wait and see if the US immigration appeals, and if so the final judgement.

Something for them to think about at least for those with brains: What if the final judgment is that he isn’t being persecuted? Will all the anti-PAPpies gloating change their minds about what they think about life in S’pore?

I doubt it. They’ll find another excuse to diss what 70% (and more) of S’poreans are comfortable with.

Likewise the whities should sit down and shut up about dissing the US. If the US decides not to give him asylum, will they return to fawning on the US?

S/o of JBJ’s KPKBing on FB:

Breaking news: Amos Yee is still being held in detention. This is highly unusual and dubious in the extreme. For those of you not familiar with how asylum works let me explain.

Before the hearing Amos was an asylum seeker. Asylum seekers can lawfully be kept in detention. Amos Yee’s asylum bid was successful was successful and the minute Judge Coles ruled that Asylum was granted, Amos Yee’s legal status changed from asylum seeker to “Refugee”.

Amos-the-stateless-asylum-seeker become Amos-the-American-refugee awarded protections under domestic US as well as International law. As a refugee he is immediately granted those rights under US Law as well as being granted rights under the UN Convention on Refugees. Those rights accorded him mean he shouldn’t be detained.

You may have heard that ICE plan to appeal the asylum decision and that this is being used as a pretext to keep Amos in detention. I use the word pretext because there is no provision in the Nationality and Immigration Act for ICE to detain anyone already granted asylum, even pending an appeal.

Amos now has rights and these rights are clearly being breached. As such the detention is arbitrary without basis and unlawful.

I will update you further when I hear from his lawyers. Mary Toh must be extremely concerned.

Upon release there is a good network in place in Chicago of friends and activists to support Amos with a place to live and so on. He would also be able to apply for some limited refugee financial relief. Let’s hope they release him soon and that there is not any underhand political plot behind the continued detention.

Amos keeps slipping on banana skins he threw on floor

In Uncategorized on 06/02/2017 at 4:32 am
Image result for amos yee eating banana
But first: Doesn’t Amos’ case show Trump is not anti-Muslim?
The neo-liberals are screaming that Trump hates Muslim and that the travel ban (now temporarily suspended) on people from seven mainly Muslim nations shows it.
But Amos’ case (remember he kanna jailed here because, among other things, he dissed Islam) shows the lie to such lies about Trump Triumphant. (But to be fair maybe the dissing of Islam only mitigated his dissing of Christianity? So no points in his favour.)
Back to Amos who keeps suffering from indignities and injuries he inflicts on himself.
According to a press release by Grossman Law, the firm (doing pro bono when a loony self-styled S’porean dissident wants money) representing him in his asylum bid, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) denied the release on Thursday (Febuary 2). It added that Yee will have been in US detention for 80 days by March 7 (the hearing date of his asylum application) – more than the six weeks’ jail he received in Singapore for wounding religious feelings.
Earlier, in mid January he had been KPKBing about his detention complaining that he had already spent more jail time in S’pore than in the US.
I’ve just received awful news friends, awful news.

After languishing in American jail for now a total of 24 days, according to my pro bono human rights lawyer, Sandra Grossman (who’s been doing a tireless and absolutely fantastic job on my case, by the way), she was in contact with the immigration officers and was hoping that after they heard that the nature of my case, would release me in a few days. However, that did not happen. I just got a letter that said that my court date (not release day) is scheduled for 30th January. Yes, you heard that right, fucking 30th January. What the fuck?!

That means I will literally have spent a total of 50 days in American jail, that is longer than anything that the Singaporean government has sentenced me for, for criticizing religion and the government! Someone escaped his country to prevent being sent to jail for exercising his free speech and has to spend time in jail in the country that he escaped to that is longer than if he was imprisoned for exercising his free speech from the country he was escaping! If he rescinds his political asylum claim, he is deported back to the country he is trying to escape from and gets permanently banned from coming to the US.

What the fuck? What the fuck?! This is bullshit! This is fucking bullshit!

What a born loser.
And there’s worse:
The law firm said ICE had indicated that it intended to release Yee after the hearing on January 30 this year because Boy Fantastic was not violent, a flight risk or a threat to national security. But “The refusal by ICE to honour its previous agreement, is not based on any new facts about Yee, but solely on President Trump’s new directives.”

Born loser, double confirm. Hehehe.

He was so so stupid and cheap skate that he flew to the US on a one way ticket (or so I’m told). Immigration was suspicious, checked his handphone and found messages about asylum plans and he was forced to admit he wanted asylum. So he got detained.

But then when in S’pore, he was already too clever by half.

Amos already mentioned before that every time he said he was suicidal or depressed in prison, he was actually trying to bait the media or to find ways to get released from jail earlier. And that time he looked traumatized out of court in Singapore was an act.

It’s true I think because once he got into the taxi with me and no media was looking, he started smiling and seemed totally fine.

Mother Mary on her lying boy

Well he may have fooled the ang moh tua kees, the anti-PAP cybernuts and ang moh human rights kay pohs so that they KPKBed for his release but by pretending to be suicidal or depressed he never got off a day earlier. In fact, he was put  on a tougher regime than if he hadn’t faked  being  suicidal or depressed. This was to prevent him committing suicide. He was also sent to Woodbridge while he was being evaluated on the suitability of being sent to a reform training centre. His lying got himself much worse treatment than if he juz went along with the flow, something he did the second time round.

He was too clever by half and payed the consequences in S’pore.

Ang moh helps Amos, S’pore Dissident wants money

In Uncategorized on 15/01/2017 at 2:20 pm

Here I reported that a anti-PAP nut based in the US refused to help Amos unless he was paid to do so. A real S’porean. Harry would be proud of him even though he’s a anti-PAP and a nut. (Btw, the two terms are not synonymous. Think Chris K, and Drs Wee Paul and Ang. Though often they are. Think Philip Ang,Tan Jee Say, Roy Ngerng and the TRELand cybernuts.)

But a good-hearted ang moh, a Maryland-based lawyer Sandra Grossman

is representing Yee free of charge, she said the case is ‘worthwhile’ because of the issues involved. “This is a case that will force us to look at our own national interest in free speech,” she said.

Amos has to pay her travelling expenses (He’s detained in the mid-West, Maryland’s on the East Coast) estimated at US$10,000, and el cheapo is asking for donations.

Whatever happened to the millions he claimed to have made from dissing LKY, the Catholic Church and Islam? Lied about his millions isit? How we know he not lying about his poverty?

Oh and Amos will be asking for even more money. Asylum appications can takeyears to process and usually applicants are freed from detention so that yhey can’t scrounge off the state while their application is processed.

Btw, shows how dumb he is, applying to the US for asylum. In Europe, he’d likely be provided with free board and lodging while his application is processed.

Amos in the Land of the Free

In Uncategorized on 30/12/2016 at 9:07 am

Or “Even anti-PAP nuts believe that there’s no free lunch”

An unusually sane article (from a cybernut) prompted this comment on Facebook

“Asking for free lawyer, free accomodation, free everything. I think he misunderstood “The Land of the Free”

It got this response:

Real sense of entitlement. Like a PAP minister or like hard core anti-PAP grumbler.

Article in question:

http://singaporedissident.blogspot.sg/2016/12/the-detention-of-singaporean-amos-yee.html

A real S’porean, this nut. No free service, must pay and pay. Harry would be proud of him even if he hates Harry.

Amos Yee had asked me to represent him “pro bono” or free of charge. In my opinion, he did not appear to be lacking in funds since he himself had stated in social media that he was making a lot of money through his videos. Secondly he has his parents who live with him and are fully able to pay for his expenses. I quoted him my normal asylum fee of US$3500.00 but he refused. After that I did not have further communication with him.

Recently a US based Singaporean activist Melissa Chen contacted me. She said she was trying to help Amos Yee and had arranged some lawyers to help him free of charge. She was contacting me probably from Chicago. She asked me if I could arrange accommodation for him free of charge. I told her that I cannot and even if I could I will not. After all he is well able to pay for his accommodation under his circumstances and shouldn’t be asking things free.

And

Update 12/28/2016. I have been getting readers who write asking for advice on asylum and national service. If you want advice please write to my Email nair.gopalan@yahoo.com or call me at (510) 491 8525 California time. Also note, I do not provide free legal advice.

Triple confirm, Amos is really history/ Silence of the usual suspects

In Uncategorized on 25/10/2016 at 5:14 am

There’s been no outcry, calls for protest, outpourings of sympathy for Mother Mary’s boy wonder despite three rabid anti-PAP sites, The Idiots– S’pore (Or TISG as it calls itself, And yes I know it calls itself “a useful loudhailer”for the PAPpies and a commercial news agency. But I like to call a “mongrel” a “mongrel”, not a “x-breed”.), ASS and States Times screaming “assault”:

We have also been informed that he has been threatened, slapped on the back and kicked while he was climbing up the stairs. A complaint has been lodged with the Prison Authorities, who had efficiently replied to say they will look into the matter. Amos’ mother has put in an urgent request for Amos to be moved to Home Detention.

(From CAN, a bunch of ang moh tua kees that Amos had dissed for not helping him.)

As TRE pointed out “threatened, slapped on the back and kicked while he was climbing up the stairs” is simply bullying.

And S’poreans know it, the boys having done NS (something Boy Wonder and Mother Mary is not for him: a whiter than white white horse isit?). So they know BS when they read it, even the cybernuts of TRELand and TISG Slum. Hence the lack of sympathy even from the nuts.

Waz more interesting, is that the ang moh kay pohs and their S’porean sycophants too have moved on for good. Once upon a time, they’d scream “Torture!”

We don’t hear from Phil Robertson of Human Rights Watch, nor Maruah nor AWARE. They were once vocal champions of Amos. And where’s Mad Dog? I mean there’s no by-election to fight.

The anti-PAP caravan has really left him after in the past repeatedly egging him on by publicising his stunts and pranks, thereby creating a celebrity.

I hope he realises by now that when the CIA and MI6 cut their funding, mouths close.

He has served his purpose as an instrument to attack the administration of justice here. Their caravan has moved on, in search of the next instrument to attack the PAP administration, the administration of justice etc.

 

Amos again in the news/ Amos the wise?

In Uncategorized on 18/10/2016 at 4:57 am

Update on 20 October: CAN (a bunch of ang moh tua kees that Amos had dissed for not helping him: see link below) has alleged that he got beaten up in Changi Prison by fellow inmates.) Well, well.

We have also been informed that he has been threatened, slapped on the back and kicked while he was climbing up the stairs. A complaint has been lodged with the Prison Authorities, who had efficiently replied to say they will look into the matter. Amos’ mother has put in an urgent request for Amos to be moved to Home Detention.

Mother Mary’s full of BS. Home Detention so she can clean his ass for him?

Yup, he and she and made their beds, and must lie in the said beds.

————————————–

But first let’s talk about how the alternative media has been covering Amos recently. Huh you may ask? Coverage what coverage? And you are absolutely right.

Amos Yee went to prison on 13 October. Alternative media was silent except for a report by TRE.

Self-proclaimed genius teenage blogger Amos Yee is back in prison and will remain in there for at least the next 4 weeks (after remission).

Amos Yee (Photo: Terry Xu)

The 17-year-old was slapped with 8 charges, which were: 6 charges under section 298, and 2 charges under section 174 of the Penal Code.

It went on to list the charges.

Otherwise this once (and future hero?) of the alternative media, the ang moh tua kees and the cybernuts received no publicity showing that this ang moh kay poh was talking cock

The teenager’s latest trial was closely watched by rights groups, who argue that the case threatens freedom of expression.

Phil Robertson of Human Rights Watch said Singapore now needs to review its approach in dealing with cases like Yee’s, who is likely to benefit from the publicity.

“Every time the authorities go after him, it just adds to his online audience,” said Mr Robertson in an email.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-37505951

The ang moh was talking after he was sentenced to 38 days jail beginning on  Oct 13

Well going by on online buzz about Amos, he’s wrong about. There isn’t any buzz

As I’ve said before “The anti-PAP  caravan moves on”. Amos has had his fifteen minutes of fame. Next celebrity please.

As for the wisdom of Mother Mary’s boy fantastic, a few weeks ago he posted

.
Know what, I am getting sick of my long hair after 2 years, I think I’ll cut it short. Fortunately for me they offer free haircuts in prison

Well maybe he’s learning wisdom (something dad said he lacked): liking what’s going to happen anyway.

Next he’ll embrace going into NS? LOL.

But maybe he was faking his wish to cut his hair. Putting on a brave face. Only time will tell if he’s acquired wisdom or not.

Role model for Amos?

Wang Leyu broadcasts himself live for five hours, and sometimes all night. While he talks on camera about his life or hums a tune or dances, viewers watching on their phones write messages that pop up on his screen. Occasionally a bright icon flashes, meaning a fan has paid money to send him a virtual sticker as a tip.

,,,

Live-streamers entertain and inform in a variety of ways, from playing video games—so that viewers can watch their on-screen action—to giving English lessons. But the majority are young women who stream video of themselves as they flirt, sing or dance. Such diversions are a big hit among Chinese men. The most popular streams are viewed by over 100,000 people at a time.

Ling Ling, a 29-year-old living in Shanghai, has gone to great lengths to curate a picture-perfect life on social media. Her photos on micro-blogging site Weibo show her glamorous and leisurely life.

Dressed in fashionable clothing and with immaculate make-up, Ling Ling is seen dining at fancy cafes and restaurants; attending parties and social events with her girlfriends; travelling to places like Boracay, Tokyo and Dubai.

But she does not cultivate her online image just to make herself feel good or her friends jealous. She is one of the new internet celebrities, known as Wang Hong.

It’s a lucrative business, with Zhang Dayi, one of China’s best known Wang Hong, reportedly earning 300m yuan (£35m; $46m). This compares favourably to top Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, who according to Forbes, made about $21m last year.

Judge right about Amos’s ability

In Humour on 11/09/2016 at 4:37 am

Recently, I posted that Amos could crack great non vulgar jokes.

Last yr the High Court Judge in dismissing his appeal said that Amos is “obviously not a person without talent”, given his command of the English language, Justice Tay said: “I hope that Mr Yee will wean himself away from his preference for crude and rude language. Real debate and rational discussion on social issues can flourish in an environment of goodwill, reasoning and civil language.” CNA

To which I can only say “Heat, Hear”. And that the judge is spot-on on his judgment on Amos.

Prison awaits Amos

A day after he reversed a decision to stand trial and pleaded guilty to two charges of failing to show up at a police station, teen blogger Amos Yee again threw in the towel and admitted to three counts of wounding religious feelings. ST

This leaves him fighting three charges. He is alleged to have posted one photo and two videos online, between April and May, with the intention of wounding the feelings of Muslims.

Bet you he will plead guilty.

Hopefully jail will cure his Narcissistic Personality Disorder

————————————

Open the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders”, a widely used handbook in the US and elssewhere, and the checklist for Narcissistic Personality Disorder could be notes for a profile on Amos. Symptoms include abnormal attention-seeking, self-centredness, a sense of entitlement, exaggerated self-appraisal (ie, fibbing about achievements) and warped relations with others. The outside world is mostly of interest as a mirror, reflecting back on the narcissistic self.


Seriously,  he’s got a genuine, rare talent that he can exploit for fame and $. More soon.

RTO for Chippy

Details of whar happened to Chippy are below. Really sad tale.

Why can’t the authouriies juz let him emigrate at no cost to us tax-payers. Instead we kanna fund his “rehabilitation” at an ACRES RTO. Why liddat PAP administration?

The irony of it all

Amos left the country but returned voluntarily, Chippy cannot leave but is further confined.

It seems Amos fled to Oz, planning to seek asylum. It a;so seems, he was advised that with  socially conservative politicians ascendant in Australia, it was unlikely that he would get asylum via ministerial discretion. This meant that he would have to go through a long legal process to get asylum.

And as he didn’t have the money and Mother Mary looking after him, he decided to come back.

Seems some well-off members of Caring Action Network, helped fund his holiday but wouldn’t fund any legal case.

———————

The sad tale of Chippy

The long-tailed macaque, which was befriended at the start of this year by Normanton Park resident Madam Prema, is now with wildlife rescue organisation Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (ACRES) for “rehabilitation”. This is so that Chippy can “hopefully be wild and free again rather than be held captive,” said ACRES’ Executive Director Louis Ng. [No point asking yout PAP MP to help, as Louis is one of the MIW]

In a joint statement, NParks, AVA and ACRES said they were working together to rehabilitate the monkey. “The main objective is to wean the monkey off human food, so as to reverse the monkey’s dependence on humans caused by the feeding and interaction with the monkey by members of the public.”

(CNA Aug 17)

“Had we known Chippy was going to ACRES, we would not have helped catch him.”

The report continues

But even now that Chippy is out of the wild, Mdm Prema and her family are now concerned about his well-being at ACRES.

“He’s got no chance with them…I’ve seen the way they handle him…I don’t trust them,” she said, citing the behaviour of an ACRES staff member towards Chippy earlier this year. In video footage captured by Mdm Prema’s daughter, an ACRES staff member can be seen waving and banging a long stick on the ground in front of Chippy in order to keep the monkey out of the Normanton Park condominium compound.

(Video: Courtesy of Mdm Prema)

She claimed that her family’s calls and queries to ACRES have gone unanswered, and she has no idea how Chippy is doing. This has, she said, caused her some distress and sleepless nights, particularly because she said she was asked by the authorities to help catch Chippy.  

“Chippy was running away and would not come down from the tree. We were told that he was going to the AVA, and they promised me he would not be culled. There was no talk about ACRES, no talk about rehabilitation, nothing.”

“So I used his favourite toy to coax him down, and we captured him in 45 minutes.”

“It was only the day after when we called NParks that we found out he was at ACRES. That made me feel like I wanted to die,” she said.

“Had we known Chippy was going to ACRES, we would not have helped catch him.”

 

 

Giving the finger to Amos

Amos and the the art of protest/ Why Ali was “the greatest”

In Uncategorized on 08/06/2016 at 5:06 pm

So Amos was back in the news. I’m sure he came back because he missed Mother Mary’s pampering to his every whim, and the publicity. But he must be disappointed that he’s history even though he was charged in court and assaulted in public. The ang moh tua kees have got their knickers wet over the Roy and Teo show, not Amos. Interestingly, they don’t give two hoots about the Indian TISG, even though P Ravi is now running the show.

Seriously, coming back to Boy Fantastic, I suspect he’s really a stupid, dumb kid (What to expect of boy who didn’t go to RI.? (OK, OK, I admit that  GCT,Kee Chui, Tan Jee Say and Tan Kin Lian are also RI boys) unable express (let alone understand) himself. I think he really wants to be a protest artist like Petr Pavlensky, Ai Weiwei, Theaster Gates and Beyonce, but can’t express or understand this honourable calling. Instead, he positions himself as mummy’s boy gone wrong.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Ai Weiwei and Beyonce, but not the other two.  Below is something on Petr Pavlensky and Theaster Gates http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-36163543 aboit.

Doesn’t Petr Pavlensky’s antics  make one think of Amos’ antics? The sewing of his mouth and the nailing for his scrotum reminds me of Amos’ self-inflicted stint at our very own Arkham. Both actions were avoidable but done to shock and sensationalise with the aim of making themselves celebrities: celebrities with a cause.

Petr Pavlensky is a Russian artist at the radical, Dadaist, end of the spectrum. His reference points include Guy Debord’s Situationist International movement, the Sex Pistols and Kazimir Malevich – and less obviously, Lucien Freud and Caravaggio.

He, like Beyonce, thinks there’s room for improvement in the way in which his country is run.

He too thinks there is oppression, police brutality, and corporate/state corruption. But he doesn’t have access to the sort of levers available to the US singer, and even if he did, I doubt he’d pull them in quite the same way.

Briefly. He started out at art school, but found the teaching dogmatic and dull.

He left and found his artistic voice by sowing his mouth shut in response to the incarceration of members of Pussy Riot following the performance of their Punk Prayer in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow.

It made for a strikingly nasty image. An image, that had it been made by a non-artist, would have received little attention, but by pulling the one lever had got – art – his work received international attention.

He followed that up with a piece called Fixation (2013). That’s the one where his genitals come in to play.

After weeks of preparation and planning, he went to Red Square, stripped naked, and nailed his scrotum to the paving stones. Extreme? Yes, very. But maybe extreme situations call for extreme actions? …

Ai Weiwei uses the notion of art in a similar way. He too turns himself into a one-man picket to bring attention to what he perceives as the shortcomings of the authorities in his native country, China.

He has also been incarcerated, although for far less obvious reasons.

The American Theaster Gates is another artist who “leverages” the status of art in society to turn the detritus he finds in the dilapidated buildings he buys on the Southside of Chicago into sculptures worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

He then uses the money to help regenerate the area, which has been called the murder capital of America. …

He is furious. Ai Weiwei is furious. Theaster Gates is furious. Beyonce is furious.

They are all using art to protest, and to some effect – but admittedly with different immediate outcomes.

Well one thing is certain, Amos is furious, and like Ai Wei and Petr Pavlensky, has been incarcerated. But will he ever be famous? (Being a celebrity in S’pore doesn’t count.)

Btw, even his cybernut fans in TRELand are turning against him, or at least keeping quiet, like the ang moh tua kee paper warriors and activists that were championing him.

Amos’ boasting, his cockiness, his stoicism are all part of a plan to defy society. Ali shows such a plan can work. Ali who the Economist said did not know his place. His boasting, his cockiness, his stoicism—all were part of a plan to defy the established order.

But unlike Amos, Ali’s provocation was all the more complete because his bragging was so often backed by success.

Amos’ bragging remains all talk, no action.

Thinking about it, Ali was a protest artist. My favourite Ali quote: A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”

LKY, Amos & mother Mary

In Uncategorized on 27/03/2016 at 10:37 am

Lest we forget, let’s remember that LKY’s death changed two lives forever and a day.

I have been too sad to speak up ever since Amos left for the past 3 months but I’m feeling more and more helpless now. I need help, but I think Amos definitely needs more help than me.

So many people have been asking me where Amos is, expecting me to know. Same as all of you, I would like to know where he is. I wonder who would be the lucky one. Is he on the run? Is he safe?

Does he have enough money for food and lodging? How can he survive on his own without any help? Why has he been quiet online for so long? These are the questions that follow after 12th Dec 2015 which was the last day I saw him. He disappeared after receiving the police letter handed to him personally at our doorstep. Afterwards, he just kept quiet, and paced furiously around the house. I went to sleep at night and the next morning, he was gone.

A few days after Amos ran away, the police came over to my house and I thought that they were going to say that they had found Amos. However, they didn’t. Instead, they just asked me if I knew where he was, which I did not, and said that Amos needed to go for a rescheduled investigation on 22nd Dec 2015. Adding on to my anxiety, an inspector called me when Amos didn’t turn up for the health check-up he had to attend for National Service.

Obviously he did not attend, otherwise he would have been arrested on the spot for his previous offence.

We all know that Amos was arrested not because he offended religious groups, but for political reasons, making fun of Lee Kuan Yew when he had just died. After Amos was released from jail, he continued to make videos which became very popular, condemning the PAP government, and saying that Amos had offended Islam was just another excuse to arrest and silence him. Although he wasn’t charged and was only asked to show up for an investigation, he knew that if the investigation continued, he would definitely be charged and sentenced, and this time since it was a repeated offence, probably sent to 3 years of RTC, which is why he chose to run away from home.

I remember he wrote in his blog that he only has enough money to survive for another 3 months from the crowdfunding of his court case. That was in January, it has almost been 3 months since. * account information removed *

Knowing Amos has never been good at handling money because seeing how fast he spends money from his bank account, I think he has no money anymore and I’m very fearful he hasn’t been able to eat. Maybe he ran out of money and needed to sell his laptop which is why he hasn’t posted anything for the past 2 months. I really don’t know and I am very confused and sad.

I think that Amos’ words are disrespectful and rude, but I don’t ever think that Amos should have been sentenced or put to jail because of it. Amos is a boy with very strong views and will pursue them, so I understand why he went on the run, but because of that I worry about him every day. People keep on telling me stories like why Amos has kept quiet for so long was because the government has secretly captured him, or that he has been drugged or killed. Thinking about the things that could be happening to Amos, I am unable to sleep well at night and I’m very worried about him.

If anyone knows where Amos is, please tell me, and if he insists on keeping it confidential, please help him to the best that you can. As a mother who has taken care of him for the past 17 years, I am really very worried. He doesn’t have any life skills, doesn’t know how to clean or sweep or cook. Either the grandparents’ maid or I have been doing things for him most of the time, and now that he suddenly has to live without my help, I’m really feeling very frightened. [Time for him to learn. LOL]

Please, if anyone knows where Amos is or can offer him help or help me get in touch with him, please private message me here on Facebook. I don’t know what is happening to Amos, I hope Amos is alright, I hope my dear son is safe … …

Facebook post by Mary Toh, Amos’s mother Mary.

Ever tot of asking police to help find her son? Don’t give me the BS about she being afraid. If really concerned about waz happening to her Boy Fantastic, she should report to the police that her son ran away from home. The penalties for not attending a police interview,and NS medical checkop are peanuts compared to the relief she should feel at finding him. WAYANG by publicity seeker.

And another thing. Where are those who egged him on? But failed to stand bail for him and denied him when he righly denounced them for their hypocrisy.

This TRE reader* has it about right

[T]he point I’m trying to make here is, you should know what the outcome will be if you do something wrong (in the eyes of Singaporeans, like insulting gahmen/insulting lky), so don’t expect any sympathy since you know very well you’ll get into trouble for making that video.

I won’t condemn Amos Yee, but I won’t pity him, he’s the one who destroyed his life when he had a potentially bright future, he could avoid the politics and just focus on what he’s doing (making entertaining videos not related to politics.. film making).

Update at 2.15pm:

She and Amos made the bed that they now must lie in. In simple English, “Accept the consequences of yr actions: pointless to cry and complain.”

*No, I do not support LKY, in fact I’m not even offended by his LKY video since I didn’t even feel sad when he died.

Amos the vegan/ Why he wants to avoid NS

In Uncategorized on 21/02/2016 at 5:10 am

TRE republishing this on Amos Yee (he’s been has been silent on Facebook since 12 January and last twatted on 23 January) reminded me that I recently read something about vegans. A vegan is a really nutty version of a vegetarian. Hitler was not a vegan, he was a vegetarian. And yes, Amos says he’s a vegan

I also remembered this pix of his emaciated body posted on 16 January.

This in turn reminded me that Amos  in December boasted that despite being a fugitive, he was able to get vegan food. This is what he would be eating: For vegans, everything derived from animals is off-limits. Similar to – but stricter than – vegetarians, vegans do not eat eggs and cheese, or drink milk, and in some cases even avoid honey.

He would not be wearing or using leather, wool and.

To end, here’s how looney and sensitive to criticism the nuts are:

An action movie-style advertisement campaign to promote Australian lamb has angered vegans who call it “discriminatory”.

The commercial, by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), was released on Saturday and has since gone viral.

It shows a SWAT team “saving stranded Aussies” abroad from missing a barbeque on the country’s national day.

In one scene in the advert, a SWAT team smashes into the home of a man in New York saying “C’mon mate, in a few hours you’ll be eating lamb on the beach”, to which the the bearded man responds: “But I’m a vegan now…”.

The ad later cuts to a shot of a flamethrower-wielding SWAT officer burning a bowl of kale on the vegan’s table.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-35288560

Btw, they don’t serve vegan food in NS. So that’s why die-die he doesn;t want to do NS.

 

The silence of Amos Yee

In Media on 10/02/2016 at 7:27 am

Readers may want to know that his verbal diarrhea has stopped.

His last post on Facebook was on 12 Jan, when he reposted an old video telling Sec4 students to drop out of the education system. The O-level results had just been made public.

His last tweet was on Jan 23.

The rest is silence.

Being a foul-mouth brat who wants to be a celebrity is impossible when the MSM, new media and social media refuse to give him the oxygen of publicity.

Being a fugitive from justice that the police cannot be bothered to arrest is a really demotalising thing for a wannabe celebrity. He’ll later this yr be an NS defaulter. That’s the time, he’ll be arrested, and thrown into jail. Hard then for the human rights activists to claim that he’s being persecuted.

But maybe he’ll commit suicide first to get some publicity? Or as is more likely pretend to.

He can see the attention Benjamin Lim is getting. I hope he realises that S’poreans know that unlike Benjamin Lim, he Amos Yee, is the authour of his fate. Poor Bejamin died because of “honest” mistakes by MoE and police officers.

Update on 11 Feb at 7 am: A regular commenter made some great comments (Emphasis mine):

Amos has his mum to provide for him, and Roy realised quite early his game is up, immediately started to find work after GE. Wonder about HHH. Whos gonna support her?

Reality bites huh. These fellows were very happily lapping it all up, milking it for what its worth.

But the worst situation is not that people actively silencing you, or people speaking against you. Or IBs with fake accounts commenting on your page.

The worst for people like them – is when no one cares.

Tot of Amos’s Mother Mary

In Uncategorized on 17/01/2016 at 5:33 am

When I read this headline in a UK Sunday paper

parents should be taught how to control children
Prime minister to offer families vouchers for parenting lessons as he says that we all need guidance*

I couldn’t help but think of Amos’s Mother Mary. I’ve seen on the internet some photos of her when she was younger. She looked a bubbly, intelligent gal. I suspect that she did the “right” thing by her parents and society and suppressed her innerself, regretted it as she grew older and is now living the life she really wanted to vacariously via Amos.

 

If only she had been less indulgent of her Boy Fantastic who could do no wrong. She even tried to justify his accusation of being molested by his bailoe even after he had admitted he had lied about being molested. That’s how indulgrnt she is.
She and him would have benefited from her attending classes on discplining kids, not indulging them.  And then blaming the state and herself for the trouble he gets into
Sorry Son.
Sorry for telling you that you are in the safest country. You are feeling so insecure and scared now.
Sorry for urging you to be a law-abiding citizen. The laws are doing you more harm than good now.
Sorry for assuring you that you will be well-protected. You are being threatened and ill-treated now.
Sorry for saying that our government provides us the best welfare. You are not even allowed to sleep at home now.
Sorry for telling you that home is best. It is where you were arrested from.
Sorry for encouraging you to be creative and expressive. You are regarded as crazy and rebellious instead.
Sorry for not teaching you well. You could have been taught otherwise.
Sorry Son. Mummy is wrong.
(Btw, widely believed that Alfian Sa’at wrote the poem)
Yes, I know he has a father. But it’s clear that if dad had had his way, Amos would be a well-behaved boy, or a kid in trauma or in Woodbridge.

 

——————————–

*The prime minister will call for a revolution in child rearing this weekend by suggesting that all parents should attend classes on how to discipline their children.

In a move likely to enrage those fearful of an encroaching “nanny state”, David Cameron will say that it should be the norm for parents to receive instruction on how to behave around their offspring.

As part of a speech on the family, Cameron will announce plans for a parenting classes voucher scheme, claiming that all parents need help and that there is too little state-sponsored guidance on offer.

“In the end, getting parenting and the early years right isn’t just about the hardest-to-reach families; it’s about everyone,” Cameron is expected to say on Monday. “We all have to work at it. And if you don’t have a strong support network – if you don’t know other mums or dads – having your first child can be enormously isolating.

“Of course they don’t come with a manual, but is it right that all of us get so little guidance? We’ve made progress. We’ve dramatically expanded the number of health visitors, and that is crucial. But that just deals with one part of parenting – the first few weeks and months. What about later on, when it comes to play, communication, behaviour and discipline? We all need more help with this – the most important job we’ll ever have. So I believe we now need to think about how to make it normal – even aspirational – to attend parenting classes.”

Cameron will say that the government’s Life Chances Strategy – an initiative to target tackle child poverty – will include a plan for “significantly expanding parenting provision”. It will also recommend ways to incentivise all parents to take up the offer of classes.

Calvin, Amos & other cyber-vermin: the global perspective

In Uncategorized on 07/01/2016 at 5:43 pm

Recently, I wrote about the PAP vermin and their siblings the TRE nutty rats and about Killer Cheng and Amos the Fantastic. They all are angry, abusive and full of hatred for their fellow S’poreans. The funny thing is that it’s all online only: they don’t walk down the street shouting.

Here’s some global perspective on the paradox of their weird behaviour from a BBC article: http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-35111707

First the angry, abusive behaviour.

2015 saw a greater normalisation of hate speech in society than in previous years,” says Andre Oboler, chief executive of the Australia-based Online Hate Prevention Institute. “Where previously a person might make a vague negative allusion to race, religion, gender or sexuality, by the end of 2015 the comments on social media were blatant and overt.”
“Where previously people hid behind pages and fake accounts, by the end of 2015 many people felt their hate was acceptable and were comfortable posting it under their real name or their regular social media account,” Oboler noted.

And the fact Amos, and Oxygen, Dosh and other TRELand vermin, and Killer Cheng, Jason Chua and other PAPpies  don’t walk down the street shouting at random strangers – and in fact, if we do, and bystanders capture it on film, it becomes news, has an interesting explanation:

… because in many places, the social fabric more or less holds in real life. People might shout racial slurs in ALL CAPS online …

Could it be that what’s happening in our daily lives might be diverging from the world of digital mass conversation?

Todd says increased hate online is in part a reflection of the wider culture of public discourse.
“Despite extraordinary efforts by community and educational groups to sensitise people to the pain they cause online, the countervailing trend, especially in politics and entertainment, is the use of demeaning and damaging language and communication,” she says.

Todd’s research has uncovered a “constellation” of motivations for online abuse – “everything from feelings of powerlessness to alcohol and drug abuse and on to mental illness.”

But whatever, there is shumething uniquely S’porean in all this: only here could Calvin Cheng remain on the Media Literacy Counil, after advocating killing ISIS babies.

 

 

If Amos went to a US neighbourhood school

In Uncategorized on 07/01/2016 at 5:28 am

When Amos the Fantastic first came to public attention, an ang-moh-tua kee was quick to say that if ony he were educated in the West, not in S’pore.

I couldn’t help but mentally sneer at the clown and laugh that Amos was really lucky to be in the S’pore education system when I read about life in neigbourhood schools in the US

in South Carolina, where a 16-year-old girl was thrown onto the floor and dragged from the classroom by a police officer after she had refused to stop using her mobile phone. The internet has plenty more such horrors; including footage of a sobbing 5-year-girl in Florida, handcuffed after she threw a hissy fit.

When Bertie Simmons, Furr’s octogenarian principal, took charge in 2000, the school’s cops were running amok. “They were doing things with kids that you’d not believe,” she says. “Like grabbing them, shoving them against walls, cuffing them. I was appalled. You shouldn’t treat schoolkids like criminals.”

http://www.economist.com/news/united-states/21685204-minorities-bear-brunt-aggressive-police-tactics-school-corridors-too-many

Now Amos went to a neighbourhood school in S’pore and these things never happened to him. If they had happened to him, he’d have told us. In fact, it seems that while he was considered a “weirdo'”, “spastic”, “autistic” by other students, and a “troublesome” kid by his teachers, he didn’t get into any really serious trouble when in school.

If he had gone to a neigbourhood school in the US, if he were still alive, he might be too traumatised to behaviour as yaya as a papaya.

Come to think of it, maybe if his neighbourhood school here was as strict as those in the UA, we’d be spared his antics.

What do you think?

Oh, I found out from a mutual friend during the hols that I know Amos’s catechism teacher. He’s now a lawyer in a GLC but at thetime was a partner in a big law firm. It seems Amos once came to class ready to debate that the church was evil, bad etc. He was told that a catechism class was not the appropriate venue for such a discussion and that he shouldn’t turn up for further classes if he no longer wantede to be a Catholic.

Seems he didn’t know what to say.

Going by the way he behaved himself when Dodwell and the other lawyers were representing him, maybe he respects lawyers? Or they know how to handle him?

Update at 4.45pm: After reading http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-01-06/best-education-system-putting-stress-on-singaporean-children/6831964 , wondering maybe the education system overstressed Amos the Boy Wonder and he’s suffering the S’potr education equivalent of PTSD

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), once called shell shock or battlefatigue syndrome, is a serious condition that can develop after a person has experienced or witnessed a traumatic or terrifying event in which serious physical harm occurred or was threatened. PTSD is a lasting consequence of traumatic ordeals that cause intense fear, helplessness, or horror, such as a sexual or physical assault, the unexpected death of a loved one, an accident, war, or natural disaster. Families of victims* can also develop PTSD, as can emergency personnel and rescue workers.

Why Amos is so happy

In Uncategorized on 22/12/2015 at 5:04 am

But first, trumpets pls for me. Going by Amos’ latest outbreak of verbal diarrhoea and vomit*, he’s still in S’pore (He’s mocking the SPF for not being able to catch him): something I said when the conventional wisdom said he was overseas. FYI, it was Home Team sources that told me he had not gone overseas.

Now as to why he is happy to the point of orgasm: he has juz had a great Christmas present. Google, hegemon of search engines, released its annual lists of the most-searched terms on a country-by country basis recently.

SINGAPORE

  1. PSI Singapore – air quality following haze
  2. Lee Kuan Yew – death of Singapore’s first prime minister

  10. Lee Hsien Loong – Lee Kuan Yew’s son and Prime Minister of Singapore

Amos is way ahead of two members of S’pore’s most prominent family.

Let him have his moment in the sun. He’ll soon be in a RTC, a place worse than detention barracks.  The police know where he is, my sources tell me. They juz want to make him suffer a little. He may be free but Mother Mary’s not there to wash his backside every time he has an attack of  diarrhoea. Nor cook or clean for him.

Seriously, contrast this list with those of our neighbours and HK or Taiwan (below), and you’ll see that we don’t know how to relax by watching entertaining shows. Bit maybe  following Amos and grumbling about the haze and watching or reading about LKY’s departure is our idea of entertainment?

*Uncensored text

Do not believe what the mainstream media is portraying.

The truth is that the police have been scouring singapore and trying to look for me all this time, (my family members have messaged me and said that the police has contacted them trying to capture me), but aren’t able to (due to living in places without cctvs, disguises, vpns, putting my handphones in refrigerators, you know all those good evading stuff), and they’ve used the mainstream media to spread rumors that I’m overseas, and claim that they’ve postponed the investigation to 22nd December, just so they can buy more time to try to do so.

And of course the reason why they haven’t issued a warrant of arrest and gotten the media to announce it, is because they genuinely do not want singaporeans to know that a 17-year-old boy has outsmarted and evaded them for this long, because once again, it looks really fucking embarrassing for the police.

But really, escaping the singapore police, believe me is really fucking easy. Unlike what the government and the mainstream media tries to portray by wildly boasting about the few robberies they actually managed to contain with news articles, big medals and trophies that cover police stations, the singaporean policemen are genuinely incompetent and really fucking suck.

From what I learnt in my time in prison, most of my prison mates have either taken or sold drugs (for a pretty large profit of $600/day I heard) but have never been caught for it, and apparently there’s a huge underground drug industry in singapore where coke and amphetamine are hidden in tic-tac cases and traded in places like jurong east, orchard and the burger king in ang mo kio; many people have committed awol (escaping national service) by using the ID of their siblings who have already finished national service, and theft is very easy to commit in singapore (there are many cases when the act is even caught on CCTVs inside the MRT Station, yet the police still aren’t able to find the thief; I should know, it happened to me and my LG phone).

So yeah, after about 5 days staying in the exact same place, I’m pretty much certain the police can’t find me, and I’m able to continue my work. More blog posts and videos to come; many of them will probably contain hate speech and be considered a crime, but really it doesn’t matter, the police can’t be find me anyways, so I’ll murder and rape as much as I want (I won’t actually do those 2 things, wounding religious feelings though, that’s cool).

And no even though I signed up, I will not, and never intended (even way before uploading the lee kuan yew video) to go to national service; you gotta be fucking retarded to think I’m willing to waste those 2 years of my life.

Well munchkins, the dance continues, a shame that one of the greatest geniuses born in singapore is deemed a criminal by the government, just like socrates, but really, that shouldn’t be surprising now shouldn’t it? Either way, your munchkin leader is here to stay, and I will see you guys very soon. Fuck the police, fuck religion, fuck pap, and welcome Amos Fucking Yee; have fun, MOTHERF**KERS!!

Amos has a point on why 70% vote PAP

In Uncategorized on 19/12/2015 at 4:50 am

This incident just indicates another reason why those 70% voted for pap, it could be very clear to them that pap is absolutely horrible; but what can they do, when there’s no distinctly better alternative to replace them? There’s no point changing from one dictator to another.

This is the last para of another piece of verbal diarrhoea. He castigates Goh Meng Seng’s PPP for supporting the law that got him into trouble (“PPP politicans are retarded”).

His uncensored analysis of the BS that is Goh Meng Seng’s PPP in making a police report against Calvin Cheng, which he then expands into an attack on the Oppo parties, culminating in the above.

Why the fuck, did members from ppp file a police report against calvin cheng?!

This is the fucked up law completely violates our constitutional rights, that landed me 55 days jail and might give me an extra 18 months, and yet an opposition party is not condemning the law, but instead using it, to try to convict another person, are they fucking retarded?!

One person’s views in no way represents the views of other people or a country, it is a logical fallacy that has been plaguing of society, due to false claims like how the quality of a parent is solely indicative of the quality of a child, and the presence of a ‘party whip’ in parliament. And now ppp is saying that calvin cheng’s comments could mislead terrorists to think that it represents the view of singapore, and thus make us susceptible to terrorist attacks. Instead of explaining how calvin cheng’s comment is not representative of the country’s and that making that association doesn’t make a lick of fucking sense, they are instead acknowledging it’s presence to try to convict another person, and thus perpetuating this disgusting mentality that causes these terrorist attacks, and widespread stupidity in our society.

Words do not cause violence, people do. If calvin cheng’s comments really does attract terrorists to attack our country, those terrorists should be held responsible, not fucking calvin cheng. But these ppp fucks actually believe that he should be held responsible and convicted!

These are the opposition members that are going to provide us more ‘freedom of speech’ and make us more ‘democratic’? People might say this just reeks of a publicity stunt, but I don’t think it’s that, I think it just reeks of immense stupidity.

calvin cheng will obviously not get convicted because he’s a pap dog, but if he does, I will speak against it! Especially since I was the one who suffered from that law he would be convicted for, And this isn’t just an act to try to make me seem compassionate and thus gain support from more people believe me. Unlike biased opposition cunts, I don’t just speak up for my side, but both sides if any injustice is inflicted on them.

From this act, we can now tell that these opposition fuckers from PPP are absolutely horrible! Not only are they morally deprived, they’re even worst than pap because you don’t even have the ability to suck up to the singaporean population. No wonder the opposition lost the elections, fucking disgusting pieces of shit like sec-gen cunt augustine and goh meng seng are contesting.

I hope this moral depravity is only exclusive to members from ppp (probably not, those nsp fucks..), with fuckers like these in the opposition side no wonder educated people would be skeptical and vote for pap.

This incident just indicates another reason why those 70% voted for pap, it could be very clear to them that pap is absolutely horrible; but what can they do, when there’s no distinctly better alternative to replace them? There’s no point changing from one dictator to another.

 

Amos Yee

Amos flees Mummy/ Peceptive tots on Boy Wonder

In Uncategorized on 16/12/2015 at 7:53 am

(Update on 17 December 4.30am: My sources tell me that he’s hiding in S’pore, not gone overseas. As to his reissue of the LKY video, It’ll be interesting if Mad Dog Chee comes to his defence. The anh moh tua kees like Kirsten Han, Lynn Lee etc etc, have moved on.)

If anyone is interested Amos posted on 14 December that he had failed to attend a police interview.

He then suffered an outbreak of verbal diarrhoea (as bad as any Roy Ngerng has had) and  claims to have run away from home. The latest by the MSM is that

The police said officers will interview teenage blogger Amos Yee “upon his return to Singapore”, in connection with investigations into religiously offensive remarks made online.

Yee, 17, was to have shown up at Jurong Police Division on Dec 14 to assist with investigations, but he failed to do so.

A TRE reader had earlier posted this on Amos

— His NS will last five yrs including detention barracks.

— He has no supporters left after he insulted them. Thinking about it, even Mad Dog Chee is running to support him. Must be pills the RI doctors are prescribing.

— Amos is no artist.

What’s there for the police to investigate? Just use whatever section of the law to detain him indefinitely without trial. Hold him till he comes of age to do National Service. From there, the military can take over the prosecution of Amos. Most probably, Amos will be moving in and out of detention barracks for 5-7 years instead of the 2 years doing his National Service. This will keep him out of circulation until he returns to civilian life. Then the vicious cycle of social prosecution will repeat itself.

Eventually, Amos will end up an old jail-bird, rotting in
jail most of his life – unless he chooses to emigrate to another country
ASAP.

Amos has alienated most of his sympathisers because of his motor-mouth. Insulting, despising and mocking opposition leaders and showing disrespect and disdain for our pioneer anti-Lee Kuan Yuan fighters who have suffered years of unjustified imprisonment.

Amos, even as an artist has been a huge disappointment. Sorry, Amos my opinion of you has changed. You thought that by putting down the opposition leaders the government will look at you in a different light. Punk, you are still light years away from being an artist. A manipulator perhaps to one up all and sundry in whatever you choose to do or said.

And this from the post below

Amos is a strange one. Talented and unique. However he is taking the kindness of so many of his sympathisers for weakness. All the opposition who spoke out for him, his admirers and fans here and overseas. He sneered at them in return just because he feels like it. At the moment he has all the ‘fame’and attention he wants. Things are going swimming well for him. The next time he falls into the shithole again, there won’t be any sensible people crying for him in Hong Lim Park. Freedom lovers friends from Hong Kong will pay scan attention to his plight. I have learned, have you?

On Calvin Cheng, he makes a good comment that the PAP approved clown that is not taken seriously by the PAPpies and anti-PAP “intellectuals”

He also makes some good points on the making of police reports.

Nathan:

I do not care, if I want somebody hard enough I will reveal my identity,my name, my everything and go to a police station and make a report against that person for whatever grievances I had against that person.

Do you want Calvin Cheng hard enough to lodge a police report against him? I think you do, but what are you afraid of? that I don’t know. Believe me, I had done exactly I am telling you people here to do. If you guys want to be insulted then I go ahead. The police are not interest in small fry like you and me no matter how right you are. If there is a case to be make against the person in the report, they will go ahead. They will do the job. They will have all your personal records. Whether that will be used against you in future by them or any third party that’s the risk you will have to take if you want Calvin Cheng hard enough. There lies the difference between doing and just talking.

As for Calvin Cheng, I have watched him in the Inconvenient Question online. I observed the host, the invited speakers and the audience do not seem to take what he said seriously. They even laughed and poked fun at him. I got a hunch but I do not where it comes from that Calvin Cheng is let loose by the Establishment to be as controversial and outspoken as he likes to counter the daring of the anti government social websites. Some of the PAP candidates have say things and behave similarly to Calvin Cheng although not that extreme. The electorate seemed impressed and the PAP did win handsomely. So, it’s worth your while to go after this clown if the government is behind him? Calvin Cheng is not even worth a mention by anyone.

 

Amos the Fantastic: Update

In Uncategorized on 13/12/2015 at 8:04 am

He informs ST that he’s the boy being investigated

StraitsTimes! You have no proof! Just because somebody is 17 years old and makes anti-religious remarks doesn’t mean it’s automatically me and linked to my anti-Islam comments.

But yeah you’re right, it was me. I’m sorry I couldn’t resist.

The long-winded, meandering post that got him investigated (soap applied by me)

So the hot news is calvin cheng, ex-nmp, pap fanatic, part of singapore’s dismal media ‘literacy’ council, thinks an effective way to stop ISIS is to kill the extremists’ children.

Now this is shocking blah blah blah but if you think in terms of the ‘values’ that we grew up with and in the realm of the pap ‘logic’, it kind of makes sense.

We are raised under the impression that a child is somehow caged beside their parents all throughout their youth, and that the parents are solely responsible for how the child turns up. The government wishes to portray this as ostensibly fact because this is an archaic, close-minded chinese ‘value’ that the dumb chinese majority in singapore moronically hold dearly, and upholding that helps pap suck up to the chinese, and thus increase their vote count.

The by-product of that is additional artillery for the government to attack someone they don’t like. A notable example is when they exploited talentless celebrities (who are now reduced to doing crappy mediacorp commercials until ah boys to men 4 comes out) to say that why Amos Yee (me) is so rude, is solely because of his parents. And the sheer enthusiasm seen in razortv in how they publicised it, they are after all sph government dogs.

However, due to that, pap leaders create the unnecessary burden for themselves to make sure their children is as ‘reputed’ as them (prime minister lee kuan yew to prime minister lee hsien loong, one dictator to another, sadly lee hsien loong can’t continue the streak of nepotism because his sons don’t want to be manipulative cunts or is albino and adopting isn’t very ‘chinese’). Since lee kuan yew wanted to portray himself as perfect as possible (HAH!), he had to present his son to be as perfect as possible (HAHAHAHAHA!!!), and since all humans are fallible, especially when they’re teenagers, and unlike all of us, lee hsien loong didn’t have the luxury of being able to publicly fail (which is a very good learning tool), the clash between the heightened existential teen angst of having expectations from being a politician’s during hsien loong’s youth, and the no-nonsense harsh disciplinary parenting of harry, must have been tremendous, and most likely materialised into an abusive relationship during lee hsien loong’s youth (we do not know what actually happened in the istana during the 60s, but I speculate it involved lots of psychiatrists and scars on hsien loong’s face).

Therefore, with the societal conditions that most singaporeans themselves put upon, how a child turns out is directly dependent on the parent, if the parent is a killer the child would undoubtedly turn out to be one, therefore we should kill all the ISIS extremists’ children!

This quote by calvin cheng seems appalling to us because we still give the children of killers, a chance in society and don’t kill them, but pertaining to the societal conditions put forth by the stupid chinese and our government, that wouldn’t be consistent now wouldn’t it? Keep in mind, we are already giving murderers, kidnappers and drug traffickers (you do know that marijuana unlike other drugs is actually very beneficial right?) the death penalty. So if the singapore society continues to deteriorate, like calvin cheng, in about a 100 years, the government might also deem it fit to kill extremists’ children as well; it does aid in solving our overpopulation issue.

So in that sense, what calvin said is actually quite ahead of his time, only he’s speaking in more dystopian (or maybe utopian to him) terms. But I’m guessing thoughts like these probably plague many PAP ministers’ minds, just that they’re, smart (manipulative) enough to not say it publicly, until both our society and our world deteriorates (hopefully not), to the point that countries collectively agree that genocide is an effective form of capital punishment in reducing crime, in which case we’ll be one of the forerunners.

Oh yes and fuck [redacted: insert offended religion], and [redacted: insert deity of offended religion] doesn’t exist, but say you see a prick from ISIS who wants to kill or has even killed before, don’t think that’s a scenario where it’s alright to kill him. No crime (even mass genocide) is worth a punishment of torture or the death penalty, just maybe lock him up and assign him a proficient psychologist, and let him out whenever the psychologist deems fit. Then he’ll be able to go out and contribute to society without killing anymore (I hope), unfortunately that method requires skill, something the PAP government obviously doesn’t have (except during the elections).

This little quote by Calvin Cheng is an extreme microcosm to what our society would possibly be like if it continues to deteriorate, and hopefully singaporeans do not need something as tangible as an extreme quote by a pap fanatic, to see the big picture and highlight the long-term effect of what our pap cunt government is doing. calvin cheng sucks, and so does pap. Have fun!

But amos not as quai lan as he wants us to think he is. He registered for NS recently.

“Hate speech”: MLC chair ignores judge’s comments

In Uncategorized on 02/12/2015 at 2:26 pm

(Ot “Provocation” is not freedom of speech”)

I was very disgusted by Dr Tan’s defence of Calvin Cheng a member of the Media Literacy Council of which Dr Tan chairs. His mealy-mouthy defence is here.  Calvin Cheng is white horse isit?

Here’s something my Facebook avatar  posted on Siow Kum Hong’s wall when Siow took the high moral ground that CC should not be given the AY treatment and which happens to explain my difference of opinion with prof Tan: If it waz gd enough for Mummy’s Boy Fantastic, it’s gd enough for Calvin Cheng. No double standards pls. Justice S’pore style must be done. Here’s what the high court judge said in Amos Yee’s case that applies to “Kill IS babies” MLC member Calvin Cheng: Justice Tay said: “This is not freedom of speech, this is a licence to hate, to humiliate others and to totally disregard their feelings or beliefs by using words to inflict unseen wounds”. It seems like … throwing stones at his neighbour’s flat to force the neighbour to notice him, (and) come out to quarrel.”

There’s another relevant bit even if “Kill IS babies” Cheng doesn’t use vulgar words: “Yee used coarse, hard-hitting words to arouse emotions … vulgar insults to deliberately provoke readers and draw them out,” he said, adding that the 16-year-old should “wean himself off his preference for crude, rude language (and engage in) real debate”, which can “flourish in an environment of goodwill, reasoning and civil language”.

And I’ll add to the above this for Professor Tan’s further education even if he’s a legal academic:

The fact that it was Yee’s “dominant intention” to critique Mr Lee is irrelevant, said the prosecution, led by Second Solicitor-General Kwek Mean Luck. As long as Yee had a “deliberate intention”, it is enough to prove the charge, Mr Kwek said.

Prof Tan pls note. Whatever Calvin’s intention, they are irrelevant.

Yee’s “deliberate intention” was evident, said the prosecution, as Yee himself had admitted that he was “fully aware that his remarks were bound to promote ill-will amongst the Christian population”, said Mr Kwek.

Prof Tan pls note. “Killer” Cheng has made it clear that he wants to provoke controversy i.e. trouble and ill-will.

Justice Tay noted that Yee had an “unhappy experience” in the Catholic Church. In one of his police statements, Yee said that he was “kicked out of the altar boys” for uttering a profanity at an altar boys meeting. There was therefore a background when he made the offending comments. “They were not innocent words uttered without real thought”, Justice Tay said.

Well, based on his track record of comments, it can be reasonably argued that Calvin Cheng really wants to kill babies of ISIS fighters if he is given the opportunity.

Background

Amos (Mummyy’s Boy Fantastic) had an appeal against his conviction and jail sentence dismissed by the High Court on Oct 8. was found guilty of two charges in May, after a two-day trial. He was convicted of one count of making offensive or wounding remarks against Christianity and one count of circulating obscene imagery.

Other interesting snippets_ from CNA about the appeal hearing:

The defence argued that Yee was exercising his constitutional right to freedom of speech and provoke “critical discussion”. Said Mr Dodwell: “Yes, Amos has been rude but were his actions a crime?”

— Justice Tay Yong Kwang said: “Yee used offending words against the central figure of the Christian religion.”

“Yee’s attitude of complete disregard for others … is not commonly seen. He did not respect anyone.” He had “openly defied” court orders and made sure his “bravado” was made known. Judge got this about right.

— Another of Yee’s lawyers, Mr Chong Jiahao, said that it “cannot be proven as fact” that Yee intended the comments to wound the religious feelings of Christians. “His purpose was to talk about the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew”, Mr Chong said, adding that there was no “cogent evidence” otherwise produced in court.

— On the obscene imagery charge, Justice Tay said that the image Yee circulated “must be obscene by the standards of any right-thinking society”.

Yee’s third lawyer, Mr Ervin Tan argued that the image “does not depict any genitalia” and that the district judge had used the “wrong vantage point” in determining the image to be able to deprave and corrupt young minds.

The District Judge had put herself “in the shoes of right-thinking parents and teachers of our community” and concluded that they would not approve of their children or students viewing the image, said Mr Tan, adding his view that this test is wrong and has “no foundation in law”.

“A picture does not become obscene only when genitalia is explicitly shown”, Justice Tay said. “Depravity and corruption relate essentially to the mind”, said Justice Tay.

He then challenged Mr Tan: “Would a young man bring this picture to show to his girlfriend’s family and say ‘hey, look that this funny picture’? No. Why would he not do it? Something in you says, it’s not right.”

Amos: millionaire in the making

In Uncategorized on 24/10/2015 at 12:58 pm

Maybe S’poreans shouldn’t be that hard on Amos Yee’s antics. Maybe he’s pursuing the S’pore deam of the 4 Cs in his own unique way like the UK boy who earns US$4.5m by simply making videos of himself.

Data analysed by video intelligence company Tubular Labs shows that 17,000 creators have more than 100,000 subscribers – and 1,275 of these creators are registered in the UK.

Incredibly, 1,477 YouTube creators have more than a million subscribers, and 147 of these creators are registered in the UK.

Tubular Labs has created a list of the top 10 most influential UK creators for the BBC.

At the very top is Olajide “JJ” Olatunji, who dropped out of college, but has made $4.5m (£2.9m) in the past year, according to a Forbes list of the world’s highest-paid YouTube stars.

The 22-year-old, from Watford, has more than 10 million subscribers on his KSI YouTube channel and a “social reach” of 17.4 million when other social media platforms are taken into account.

He is best known for filming himself playing computer games while commentating on them, but he also makes comedy videos and more typical vlogs.

His vlogs include one where he decided to dye his hair blond and another in which he filmed himself for a week to give his viewers a chance to see what he does when he’s not posting YouTube videos.

Amos can be funny but the problem is that he sticks to a riff too long. He did a video attacking the PAP but after the first three minutes, he started going round in circles. If he can’t milk any more from a riff, he should move to another topic, and then another.

Would this be an offence here?

In Uncategorized on 21/10/2015 at 6:14 am

If say Amos Yee had painted the names “Lee Kuan Yew” and “Jesus Christ” on two pigs and intended to release them in Hong Lim Green?

Let me explain. There is a graffiti artist called Danilo Maldonado, commonly known as “El Sexto”, whose work is unrelentingly critical of the Cuban government.

On this occasion, the authorities decided he had gone too far: he had mocked the leaders of the revolution.

On 25 December 2014, he painted the names Fidel and Raul on two pigs and intended to release them in a plaza in Havana.

His idea was that people would try to catch the pigs and the winner could keep them.

Whether you see it as a cheap publicity stunt or a valid artistic expression, the event was never likely to be allowed to happen in Cuba.

Maldonado was stopped by state security officers before he got to the square and was put in jail, reportedly without trial.

The government say “El Sexto” is a mercenary in the pay of anti-Castro groups in Washington and Miami.

But Amnesty International recently deemed him a prisoner of conscience.

“To jail an artist for painting a name on a pig is ludicrous,” said Carolina Jimenez, the organisation’s Americas Deputy Director for research.

(BBC Online)

(For the record Amnesty Int’l wrote about Amos as follows:

“Amos Yee is not a criminal. He should never have been charged, let alone convicted. He has been punished solely for exercising his right to freedom of expression,” said Rupert Abbott, South East Asia and Pacific Research Director at Amnesty International.

“If there is any justice Amos Yee would be walking free from court without a conviction against his name. The Singapore authorities must respect the right to freedom of expression.”

For the record, I say, “Ang moh, don’t talk cock.” I think this judge got it right about Mummy’s Boy Fantastic.)

Sorry for the digression, back to Amos and the naming of the pogs. Well going by the offences Amos was found guilty of earlier this yr, Amos could be guilty of

— “intention of wounding the religious feelings of Christians” if he painted ‘Jesus Christ” on a pig; and

— “threatening, abusive or insulting communication” which is anan offence under under the Protection from Harassment Act for painting “LKY” on the other pig,

with the intention of releasing the pigs on Hong Lim Green so that Han Hui Hui, Roy, Goh Meng Seng, s/o JBJ, M Ravi, Gilbert Goh, Dr Chee and their like could try to catch the pigs.

Brown-noser and PAP member Lionel De Sousa (“Hang 100 innocent people lest one guilty person gets away” seems to be the motto of this self-styled super robo cop who never got confirmed as an inspector, retiring as a sergeant in the SPF.) is sure to lodge a police report, something he did in the case of Amos Yee. .

Reminder of what Amos did for those with short memories. In late March 2015, shortly after the death of one LKY, Amos uploaded a video on YouTube criticising LKY. In the video  he compared Lee to Jesus, and said nassty things about both of them. Yee also uploaded to his blog an image depicting Lee and Margaret Thatcher engaged in anal sex. Yee was arrested and charged with “intention of wounding the religious feelings of Christians”, obscenity, and “threatening, abusive or insulting communication.” The first two charges were for offences the Penal Code. The third charge, later stood down, was under the Protection from Harassment Act.

Amos Yee: The anti-PAP caravan moves on

In Uncategorized on 16/10/2015 at 5:15 am

Double confirm, Amos is history, a celebrity no more. The anti-PAP paper (or cyber) warriors and activists ignored the end of the saga (or is it farce?) “Amos the Freedom Fighter: S’pore’s Nelson Mandela”. There was hardly a word on new media about the dismissal of his appeal.

Amos (Mummy’s Boy Fantastic) had an appeal against his conviction and jail sentence dismissed by the High Court on Oct 8. was found guilty of two charges in May, after a two-day trial. He was convicted of one count of making offensive or wounding remarks against Christianity and one count of circulating obscene imagery.

Justice Tay Yong Kwang said: “Yee used offending words against the central figure of the Christian religion.”

“Yee’s attitude of complete disregard for others … is not commonly seen. He did not respect anyone.” He had “openly defied” court orders and made sure his “bravado” was made known. Judge got this about right.

The defence argued that Yee was exercising his constitutional right to freedom of speech and provoke “critical discussion”. Said Mr Dodwell: “Yes, Amos has been rude but were his actions a crime?”

Justice Tay said (rightly in my view): “This is not freedom of speech, this is a licence to hate, to humiliate others and to totally disregard their feelings or beliefs by using words to inflict unseen wounds”. It seems like Yee is throwing stones at his neighbour’s flat to force the neighbour to notice him, (and) come out to quarrel.”

“Yee used coarse, hard-hitting words to arouse emotions … vulgar insults to deliberately provoke readers and draw them out,” he said, adding that the 16-year-old should “wean himself off his preference for crude, rude language (and engage in) real debate”, which can “flourish in an environment of goodwill, reasoning and civil language”. Hear, hear.

The activists (paper and real) that were egging him on are silent e.g. the members of Community Action Network (CAN: Shelley Thio, Lynn Lee, Joshua Chiang, Jolovan Wham, Jennifer Teo, Woon Tien Wei, Rachel Zeng, Roy Ngerng and Martyn See.), Maruah, Aware, and Dr Chee.

(Related post: https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/15/fool-them-once-shame-on-amos-fool-them-twice-shame-on-them/)

He has served his purpose as an instrument to attack the administration of justice here. Their caravan has moved on, in search of the next instrument to attack the PAP administration, the administration of justice etc.

But to be fair, I’m sure these anti-PAP activists will say they don’t want to go to jail for criticising the judge’s reasoning.

But no need to feel sorry for Amos. He didn’t bother to turn up for the hearing despite asking his lawyers to appeal, and despite them working for free.

Mother Mary sure knows how to bring up a kid.

 

How pet minister can win votes for PAP

In Uncategorized on 26/07/2015 at 4:19 am

Independent: Human rights for cats and dogs: Spanish town council votes overwhelmingly in favour of defining pets as ‘non-human residents’

As we have a pet minister (his other jobs are aslaw and foreign relations) that’s more effective in looking after pets than the ministers responsible for Malays, Indians and Eurasians, he might want to do something similar.

Given the number of owners of dogs and cats here, this could boost the PAP’s share of the popular vote. Might even help win back Aljunied.

 

Of course, we have to bear in mind that human rights, as defined here, are different from those of the West and that of the UN: think Amos Yee. I’m sure Maruah would bitch. The members always do.

Trying to imitate this?

Image result for amos yee

They both trying to audition for the next Planet of the Apes movie? I hear there’s a role for a clowning chimp that takes on the gorillas and gets beaten up for his efforts. Amos would have a hard start on GMS for this role, given his recent spell in remand and our very own Arkham. https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/23/arkham-awaits-amos-autism-isnt-mental-illness-but/, https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/mother-mary-why-fantastic-is-in-block-7/

Goh Meng Seng for all his blustering braggadocio hasn’t suffered at the hands of the PAP administration, unlike Amos. In fact, GMS helped ensure the victory of the PAP’s preferred presidential candidate by advising, helping Tan Kin Lian run a clownish election campaign. Incidentally, he had been encouraging, flattering TKL to run since 2008.

Seriously GMS was taking part in a “protest” in support of Amos, the boy fantastic. He jetted in from HK for a flying visit. He got his own private set?

Btw, notice that GMS was using a pink polo shirt. Is he courting the LGBT vote, imitating Pinkie or signalling his intention to the president of the No Substance Party that  he’s still available. Yes, I know the NSP’s official polo  shirt is orange, but using an orange polo shirt is too obvious, a signal.

Where Amos is doing some good/ Dog for Amos

In Uncategorized on 12/07/2015 at 5:23 am

His antics are drawing attention to a growing problem: excessive attention-seeking behaviour in children.

Child counsellors have said they are seeing more cases of youths who display excessive attention-seeking behaviour … such attention-seeking behaviour will remain a problem among today’s youths, who are just a click away from expressing their views online. While it is normal for most people to seek attention from family members or friends, it becomes a bigger concern when this behaviour gets excessive, and the cause for this usually stems from family neglect. 

(CNA as are the extracts below in italics)

What is excessive attention-seeking behaviour? It’s not mental, it’s developmental

President of the Academy of Certified Counsellors, Dr John Lim, said: “Attention-seeking behaviour is not a character flaw. It is a brain wiring response to a developmental trauma caused by neglect. (Emphasis mine)

“When a youth seeks attention, what he is asking for is not to be neglected and that his views be heard. It only becomes an issue when one goes through excessive lengths and means to get attention, and this can cause the person not to be functional in many areas in life.”

How to spot it 

Hence, it is critical for parents to make time for their children and pay attention to symptoms. Dr Raymond Cheong from the Youth Learning & Counselling Clinic gave an example: “If your child is a little boy or girl, they cry all the time to get what they want and the parent gives in, that is the beginning of a wilful behaviour.”

Another example he listed was when the child is over-enthusiastic in wanting to help in something or to gain the parent’s attention.

What to do about it: Amos needs a pet dog

Parents who identify such symptoms are encouraged to send their children for counselling and to teach them self-awareness, social awareness and relationship management, and help them make responsible decisions.

Sounds like self-serving advice from the practitioners.

Coming back to Amos, I always had tot that Amos needed a dog to keep him grounded in reality. I’m an only child too, and I’ve always had a dog. A dog gives the owner all the attention (and more) he needs, even when he doesn’t care for it, especially if the dog comes into the home when very, very young. One of my dogs is like that.

Whatever, three cheers for Amos because the “fantastic” is drawing public attention to excessive attention-seeking behaviour in children. Maybe when he’s better, he should be encourage to make a movie on this topic.

Fat chance of this with fans like CAN who include rabid anti-PAP activists like Martyn See, Lynn Lee (btw, both are film makers)and anti-PAP cyber warriots like Kirsten Han.

Update at 5.30pm: If he’s been traumatised as CAN is saying, and since he loves the internet, he could try playing Tetris for 12 minutes the day. Doing so after at traumatic event can reduce flashbacks.

Amos: When Nemesis met Hubris/ Why PAP PR bad

In Uncategorized on 10/07/2015 at 5:35 am

The following passage from a BBC report applies to the PAP administration not just the Chinese one:

The Chinese government, like all governments, worries that public outrage at the scale of the disaster might become directed at the state.

But instead of using normal public relations it uses public information control.

The problem for the PAP is that the public information control has never applied outside S’pore, and there is now cyberspace aka new medis https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/07/05/pm-esm-on-new-media/.

Last Sunday, I posted the PAP administration’s response to an Economist piece on Amos and other freedom of expression issues in S’pore.

Here’s what the High Commissioner in London was made to say about Amos’s case:

Your piece “Zip it” (June 24th) is unbalanced. It champions unfettered freedom of speech without providing the context of cases mentioned. Amos Yee was convicted for insulting the faith of Christians. In a small, highly diverse society like Singapore we guard our social peace jealously and make no apologies for it. We cannot allow people to denigrate or offend the religious beliefs of others: the result is anger and violence, as we have seen elsewhere. Protection from hate speech is also a basic human right.

https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/07/04/economist-piece-on-amos-etc-dark-side-cousin-responds/

Put it this way, I should be out rooting for Amos. But I didn’t because of the way Amos and mother Mary treated a good Samaritan.

Funnily the PAP administration had a more convincing explanation for the 55 days (as of the day of release): It could and should have said

Here’s a breakdown of the time he spent in captivity and the reasons thereof

— Two days when police investigated his case.

— He was in remand for 18 days because his parents and fans didn’t want to bail him; then when he was bailed by a stranger he broke bail, and then after trial when he was being assessed for probation he broke bail conditions yet again. Even the Joker, Penguin or Lex Luthor are less criminal than Amos.

— Then 21 days remand because he had to be assessed whether he was suitable for reform training given that he refused probation.

— Then 14 days because judge wanted to find out whether he could be given a mandatory treatment order if he was autistic.

If he had accepted probation, he would be home where mother Mary could cater to his every whim and fancy. And if his parents or fans had offered bail, and if he’d not broken bail conditions, he needn’t have spent 18 days in remand.

Hubris met Nemesis and Nemesis won.

(My Facebook avatar posted a variant of this on Facebook, in response to TOC’s and Function 8’s support of Amos the Fantastic. Got quite a few “Likes” and no rebuttal from TOC or F8.)

Seriously here’s the discredible bit about the detention.

He spent two days (police interrogation) away from mummy’s care. Actually, these two days were very unreasonable given the nature of the offences under investigation.

But I suspect, the police wanted to give him a scare, in the expectation, that he’d apologise, repent and the case could be closed with a warning. They didn’t know Amos, his mum and the anti-PAP human-rights activists (aka the ang-moh tua-kees) pulling the strings of Amos and mum, cheered on by the cybernuts.

As to his treatment during the last 35 days, he was treated no better or worse than any convicted offender undergoing examination for a RTO ot MTO.  He wasn’t persecuted.

He spent 53 days in captivity because he was quai lan: he tot he was entitled to do what he liked and not suffer the consequences. The IMH report to the court said Amos is misguided in not appreciating that ‘freedom of expression is not freedom from consequence’https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/amo-what-imh-recommended/.

The system is telling him he is juz another criminal.

In one of John Wayne’s Westerns, he said “Life is tough but tougher if you are stupid”. Amos and Mother Mary should ponder these words of wisdom.

What Amos said in his police statement

In Uncategorized on 08/07/2015 at 4:20 am

Amos the “fantastic” who was sentenced to four weeks’ jail on Monday, almost immediately instructed his lawyers to file an appeal. “Amos, duly advised by his lawyers, is of the view that the conviction is wrong in law and sentence levied against him is manifestly excessive,” said a statement from his lawyers from Dodwell & Co on Monday.

I do hope that the lawyers and Amos remember what was reported at the time of the trial.

Deputy publi prosecutor Hay Hung Chun said Yee’s defense contradicted a statement he had given police on the night he was arrested in which he said he knew his video was bound to promote ill-will” among Christians. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/defense-singapore-teenager-didnt-intend-offend-video-142023078.html

He was responding to Lawyers for an outspoken Singaporean teenager charged with offending religious feelings in an online video that criticized the city-state’s founding father said that he did not intend to hurt Christians.

(Emphasis mine)

And I’ve not read any report nor heard from anyone who attended the trial that the defence challenged the DPP’s comments. So I have to assume that the DPP was right about what Amos said in the police statement.

All in all this appeal could be an example of what the IMH doctor says about Amos being misguided in not appreciating that ‘freedom of expression is not freedom from consequence’: or to put it another way, “Can suka suka do what he likes and not kanna takan.

Amo: What IMH recommended

In Uncategorized on 07/07/2015 at 6:21 pm

The psychiatrist who conducted the court-ordered evaluation of the youth at the Institute of Mental Health, Dr Cai Yimin, is also Emeritus Consultant, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Institute of Mental Health.

He recommended in his report to the court that

— Amos Yee would benefit from having a counsellor or mentor to guide him in the “responsible use of the Internet”*,

—  he should continue with formal education where he would have opportunities to socialise with his peers, and

— family counselling should take place to improve the interaction and relationship among all members of the teenager’s family.

He said Amos is misguided in not appreciating that ‘freedom of expression is not freedom from consequence’.*

Amos: Yaya papaya no more/ Mandatory treatment order given

In Uncategorized on 06/07/2015 at 5:03 pm

The Prosecution had decided not to press for reformative training, which will see Yee instituted for at least 18 months, and go for a jail term because of what was described as a “seismic shift” in attitude on Yee’s part.

It was noted that Yee has voluntarily removed the material and signed an undertaking to not post on sensitive issues anymore. “Amos has admitted to his guilt and promised not to re-offend”, said the Prosecution, because he understands issues of law and racial harmony.

http://www.theonlinecitizen.com/2015/07/4-weeks-jail-for-amos-yee/

Yee also has to go for mandatory counselling, which the teenager has agreed to.

Yee’s medical report said that he does not suffer from any mental disorders, but instead needs mentoring. Amos has agreed to counselling and mentoring from a doctor at Raffles Hospital.

All in all sentence passed is fair and reasonable

[S]entenced to four weeks imprisonment, for charges relating to creating a video criticizing Lee Kuan Yew.

He will serve one week for posting obscene materials and three weeks for wounding the religious feelings of Christians in his video and the sentenced is to be served consecutively.

The sentence has also been backdated from 2 June.

He wants to appeal against conviction and sentence as is his right.

Israeli Autism test that doesn’t take 2 weeks

In Uncategorized on 06/07/2015 at 1:40 pm

Here’s a test for autism that doesn’t take two weeks in a place where there are mentally ill sick people and criminals: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-33362472

People spend longer inhaling the delightful aroma of a bouquet of roses than the foul stench of rotting fish.

The results of tests on 36 children, in the journal Current Biology, showed that there appeared to be no such difference in children with autism.

OK, OK it’s experimental.

Did you know autism affects one in every 160 children globally. Behaviour, social interactions and communication skills are all affected by autism. Genetic influences on autism are estimated to be between 74-98%, a Medical Research Council study of 258 twins suggests http://www.bbc.com/news/health-31713147

Economist piece on Amos etc: Dark Side cousin responds

In Political governance on 04/07/2015 at 11:32 am

This appears only online in the letters section of the latest issue of the Economist (cousin of Hard Truths https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/07/02/where-the-pap-is-wrong-seriously-wrong/). Btw, either Economist or High Commissioner didn’t use “spell check” for “Authority”

Singapore and the media

Your piece “Zip it” (June 24th) is unbalanced. It champions unfettered freedom of speech without providing the context of cases mentioned. Amos Yee was convicted for insulting the faith of Christians. In a small, highly diverse society like Singapore we guard our social peace jealously and make no apologies for it. We cannot allow people to denigrate or offend the religious beliefs of others: the result is anger and violence, as we have seen elsewhere. Protection from hate speech is also a basic human right.

The Media Developement Authroity (MDA) suspended TRS because it had published articles deliberately stirring up anti-foreigner sentiments. It fabricated stories to boost traffic and advertising revenue.

Mr Lee Hsien Loong’s defamation suit against Roy Ngerng is a completely separate matter. The Court found that Roy Ngerng had defamed Mr Lee Hsien Loong. Freedom of speech does not extend to freedom to defame others. Yet despite Mr Ngerng’s questionable tactics, the government has not shied away from debating questions about the Central Provident Fund. Ngerng himself engaged Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam on the topic at a public forum, an exchange carried by the national broadsheet.
In seeking “wise conclusions through open debate”, integrity and honest reporting are as important as the right to speak freely.

Autism isn’t mental illness

In Uncategorized on 03/07/2015 at 4:38 am

But first I must talk about the dog that almost didn’t bark: the belated public show of support by his “fans” for Amos here.

There were protests in support of Amos Yee in Taiwan HK, and Penang.

But only this Sunday will there be a protest n our very own Hong Lim Green?

Could it be that the ang-moh tua-kee anti-PAP fans who champion his right (or duty?) to slime Harry and Jesus were afraid that they couldn’t get a decent size crowd? Despite the vocal, irrational* support from the cybernut fans from the rats’ nest in TRE Land? But that their hands were forced by the overseas protests?

This tardiness is mirrored by the lack of support from the only serious Oppo party, the SDP that is interested in human rights (s/o JBJ doesn’t count: he lost his deposit in a by-election). Dr Chee is quiet given his earlier support of Amos, and his continuing support of Roy, New Citizen Hui Hui and the other young hooligans.

Int’l support for Amos from the UN, and NGOs believed by China and India to have CIA funding was loud and expected. But the SDP is silent? Surprising given that it often apes theseNGOs and the UN. SDP knows the swing voters it needs to win a seat are not impressed by the antics of Amos, mother Mary and fans?

Could it be that the anti-PAP ang-moh tua-kees and the cybernuts, who are using Amos as a symbol to rally support against the PAP, misread S’poreans? They tot they had a big stick to beat the PAP juz before a GE: boy gets disproportionately punished for sliming Harry,

While Harry may not be as popular among S’poreans as our constructive, nation-building media portray him, S’poreans seem to be very annoyed that Amos thinks he’s above the law (breaking bail twice: most S’poreans I speak to think the bail conditions were reasonable), and by the behaviour of mother Mary and son towards the good Samaritan that is Vincent Law. Both of them accused him of “mental” molestation of boy “fantastic” after Amos falsely accused Law of molesting him, and then flip-flopped on an apology.

Or could it be that the ang-moh tua-kees are miffed that Amos mocked their vigil for him. They can be sensitive souls for all their love of low life: drug mules and the like.

Whatever, the deafening silence of local inaction when contrasted with the overseas protests could have shamed his puppet masters into finally organising a protest. I’m waiting to see if they observe Amos’s instructions on how he wants the event to be organised.

Back to the title topic, lest I be accused of bait and switch.

Being autistic, doesn’t make one nutty

Reading TRE, one would think that he has already been diagnosed with autism, and that autism is a mental illness. Cybernuts are living in the wrong century, not only the wrong country. The real world has moved on from the 19th century, when autistic people were considered lunatics, and were locked up in lunatic asylums.

He hasn’t been diagnosed with autism yet, despite mother Mary saying he has Asperger*, a “high class” form of autism, and SDP member and former ISD detainee Teo Soh Lung saying she has heard from Amos’s sympathisers that he is autistic.

And autism is not a mental illness like M Ravi’s bi-polarism**. While the UK’s Nation Health Service website says says that “autism is not a learning disability or a mental health problem”, it goes on to say that “some people with autism have an accompanying learning disability, learning difficulty or mental health problem”. http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Autism/Pages/Autismoverview.aspx

What is autism?

The NHS website describes autism thus:

Autism is a serious and lifelong developmental disability

Autism is a spectrum condition. This means that while all people with autism share certain difficulties, the condition affects each person differently.

While some people with autism live independent lives, others may need a lifetime of specialist support. Autism can have a profound and sometimes devastating effect on individuals and families. However, getting the right support makes a substantial difference to the person who is diagnosed and their loved ones.

Different brain chemistry

Autistic people may have a mental illness but autism, by itself, is not a mental illness. Their brain chemistry is different from that of “normal” people: for example “normal” tranquilisers may not work on them: they may make them more hyper.

And there are times when the chemistry goes berserk resulting in them doing bizarre things like self-harm.

I know all this because I know a couple who has a child with severe autism, She’s in her 30s but the law considers her incapable of being behaving like an adult. But mentally ill, she isn’t.

Mother Mary: Why “fantastic” is in Block 7

In Uncategorized on 29/06/2015 at 5:18 am

A regular commenter responded to Mary’s Toh self-centred, victimhood lament (analysed here) on waz happening to her “fantastic” boy wonder (Emphasis mine. Btw, this guy knows his way round the healthcare system here and he hates the PAP. But he’s no frus cybernut like Ng Kok Lim).

He’s in block 7 because … Those who are arrested and remanded by judges for psychiatric review are all done at IMH block 7. This block is the only psychiatric block purposely built for prison-like control, with secured doors & checkpoints / guardposts at all levels & at the entrance manned by cisco personnel / prisons officers.

Btw, all other blocks also contain “truly mentally ill” patients. There are also plenty of patients with violent symptoms in these other blocks.

Becoz he has been found guilty & under remand, he no longer has civilian privileges. No going to KK Hospital as outpatient in posh air-con office to be assessed by their specialist. Now anything to do with brain, go to prison block at IMH for assessment.

Even if authorities allow Amos to be assessed as outpatient at IMH i.e. everyday bring him to IMH block 7, Amos will still be incarcerated at Changi prison. It’s not like he can go home and take his own sweet time to report to IMH, if ever.

Btw, commenting on the rants against the warding of Amos in Woodbrudge for two weeks: Cybernut Investor pointed out that his fellow cybernuts cybernuts missed an impt IMH connection:

@Ng COCK Lim* and other fellow cybernuts, why no balls meh.

The logical and reasonable conclusion of Cock Lim’s cooments is that the head of Woodbridge is responsible for everything. Esp as she is daughter of person who Amos insulted? Or Cock Lim and you all that STUPID?

———

*Cock Lim, cybernut in resident in TRE’s rat nest who describes himself thus Ng Kok Lim is a regular TRE contributor who specialises in rebuttal. Err more like lying.

He accused me of lying about my prediction that Amos would be sent to Woodbridge citing that TRE reported it befire my piece appeared in TRE.

I posted this on TRE and got no response from him:

Ng Kok Lim, You are either very stupid or a bigger liar than Roy or Amos or Amos’s mum.

My prediction piece preceded TRE’s piece (It came out on my blog on Tuesday morning before the sun rose)  I can’t help it if TRE republished my piece a few days later.

TRE trying to fix me idit?

Whatever it is, it shows the quality of yr research: more Roy Ngerng and Balding than Chris K. ))))

 

Laments of Amos’s mum & why she should get real

In Uncategorized on 26/06/2015 at 4:59 am

TOC published a moving lament by Mary Toh on her feelings (“It has been a very exhausting journey these last few months for everyone in the family …” and I wish he could be home with me so I can care for him”) on her son’s plight.

She has right on her side when she asks

I understand that block 7 is where they also keep the truly mentally ill patients, and those who have committed crimes or offences and who are also mentally unsound.

It is also where my son is being held.

I wondered why my son, who is here to be assessed if he has autism, is kept here in the same block as those who are mentally ill.

The authorities should explain to her and the public why  if he has autism, is kept here in the same block as those who are mentally ill.

But methinks she refuses to see Amos and herself as anything more than victims when they are actually major players, their decisions impacting on what is happening to them.

“Amos made a video and ended up in a mental institute.”: What a misrepresentation of the facts.

She left out the following: Amos,had spat on the offer of probation that the state had preferred and which his lawyer and his mother had advised him to accept. He has reposted the offending material, and posted nasty comments about the judge. And he had earlier broken his bail conditions. All these and the false allegation that his bailor had molested him and his flip floppng on an apology to the bailor make him a victim of a vengeful state? Come on.

In a peaceful place like S’pore, this is tantamount to the Joker’s or Penguin’s misdeeds in Gotham City.

And

He wishes that he could sleep at home and go for daily assessment, but that is not what the court ordered.

Given his track record can he be trusted to go for the daily assessments? Remember he refused to meet his probation officer and was bitching about having to go to the police station and 9.00am because he wanted to sleep when he was on bail awaiting trial?

He juz wants the world to revolve round his wishes. And who is largely responsible for this sense of entitlement? Who calls him “fantasttic” and laughs off his bad behaviour? Not his dad, it’s mummy.

Given that

Amos is now exhausted, and yes, frightened. And I can understand why.

He has been remanded in prison for so long* (40 days now) – even before he is sentenced – that he probably feels things no longer make sense.,

why not advise him to

— say sorry to Vincent Law (his bailor) and the judge (remember he abused her), and

— give the passwords to his lawyer to privatise all his posts and not repost the offending posts. According to his lawyer Alfred Dodwell he had agreed to privatisingthe posts  and removing the offending posts.

These actions will show that he’s willing to play ball.

Finally, someone should lend her a video of “One flew over a cuckoo’s nest” so that she can see that rebelling can have awful consequences for the rebel https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/02/amos-flew-over-the-cuckoos-nest/.

Hopefully she can pass the message on to Amos.

Oh and btw, the original offences are no longer relevant. Amos and his mum have put in motion a juggernaut, nothing can stop it now. The judge, if Amos cooperates, can mitigate the consequences, but it takes two hands to clap.

*Hello, why didn’t she offer bail pending trial? She wanted other people’s money for that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amos: Judge going the extra mile

In Uncategorized on 25/06/2015 at 5:02 am

Almost no credit is given in cyberspace that the judge iseems to be trying her best to uphold the law while looking after the long term welfare of Amos.

Below are two posts from Facebook that explain what the judge seems to be doing.

But let’s be very clear:  the reformative training suitability report says that he is physically and mentally suitable for reformative training, even if he is autistic. Juz being autistic doesn’t give anyone the right to break the law and evade responsibility.

Actually I see a judge desperately trying not to give Amos a record. When he flaunted bail conditions he tied her hands. She’s in a really difficult place. To let him go free is setting a precedence for others to disregard rules as well. That’s why I wished ay could have just taken a step back lose the battle for now and wait it out. Then again he’s a recalcitrant teenager! Not sure whether he may also have some psychological issues. A good test is not harmful especially if it can save him some unnecessary trauma. The first step of charging him was wrong. It just spiralled downwards and AY certainly did not help himself. A real tragedy!

And here’s what someone who I personally know and who works with autistic kids says in the same thread. In addition to talking about the judge, he also gives an explanation of the mandatory treatment order (MTO) that the judge is exploring.

The MTO is a relatively new sentencing option iwhich requires an offender suffering from psychiatric conditions to undergo treatment in lieu of imprisonment.

If offender completes treatment successfully, he/she will be cleared of conviction.

Prior to this sentencing option being made available to judges, people with mental disorders were imprisoned. We can just do a google search for people with very low IQ who were sentenced to time in prison for offences such as outrage of modesty before this sentencing option was made available. Some people with mental conditions like intellectual disability, may not understand what offence they may have caused.

In that sense, I appreciate the new sentencing option.

[Err let’s give the Pet minister who also happens to be the law minister credit for this. And the PAP administration too.]

Just like intellectual disability, ASD is also on the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual IV.

Only a qualified person can diagnose where in the Spectrum a person diagnosed with ASD is (Asperger’s or whatever). I am not qualified, so I will not speculate.

IMO, the judge may be bending over backwards not to leave him with a criminal record – which is good as Amos is only a young boy.

I am not sure if MTO mandates institutional care once the diagnosis has been made, or if the ‘offender’ can commit to a term of outpatient care.

I personally feel that Amos should not be institutionalised.

On the last sentence, it takes two to tango and two hands to clap.

The “yaya papapaya”, that is Amos, had spat on the offer of probation that the state had preferred and which his lawyer and his doting mother Mary advised him to accept. And he has reposted the offending material, and posted nasty comments about the judge. And he had earlier broken his bail conditions. All these and the false allegation that his bailor had molested him and his flip floppng on an apology to the bailor make him a one-boy clear and present danger  to other S’poreans, who is unlikely to be prepared to undergo outpatient treatment.

Best if he’s locked up until he responds to treatment if he can be treated.

If not bring on the Reformative Training Centre, a heavily structured programme for young offenders involving military-style training as well as counselling, which can last up to 30 months. 

http://www.economist.com/news/asia/21655044-feisty-bloggers-face-trouble-zip-it

And do remember, the reformative training suitability report says that he is physically and mentally suitable for reformative training, even if he is autistic. Juz being autistic doesn’t give anyone the right to break the law and evade responsibility.

 

Psychiatrist behind Amos report/ Waz ASD?

In Uncategorized on 24/06/2015 at 4:21 am

Before the State Courts on Tuesday (Jun 23), District Judge Jasvender Kaur said that a report by Dr Munidasa Winslow said that Yee may suffer from autism-spectrum disorder. This emerged from the reformative training suitability report, which found the accused physically and mentally suitable for reformative training. (CNA)

He’ll be sent to Woodbridge for two weeks’ of observation and may then undergo mandatory treatment. (Trumpets pls, I predicted this early yesterday morning before the sun rose https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/23/arkham-awaits-amos-autism-isnt-mental-illness-but/) While the UK’s Nation Health Service website says says that “autism is not a learning disability or a mental health problem”, it goes on to say that “some people with autism have an accompanying learning disability, learning difficulty or mental health problem”. http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Autis

Already the cybernuts are saying that Amos is being “fixed”. As does his mother, Mary: “They always want to paint him as mentally unsound,” she commented with a frown. (TOC report)

The problem with this view is that M Ravi (Remember him? The kickass, take-no-prisoners constitutional lawyer who is the hero of the cybernut mob and the ang moh tua kees) personally chose to consult Dr Munidasa Winslow, after Ravi fell out with his previous psychiatrist in 2012 .  M Ravi has also not disowned Dr Winslow’s diagnosis in February 2015 that he was in a “hypomaniac” phase of his bipolar disorder (A mental illness causing elevated moods and periods of depression that he was diagnosed with in 2006.)

Furthermore M Ravi has not challenged his suspension from practicising law. He is resting.

So if M Ravi is being treated by Dr Munidasa Winslow, how can one reasonably argue that Amos Yee is being fixed? The doctor trusted by M Ravi is the one saying Amos may be autistic. Unless of course, one asserts that M Ravi has been conned into consulting Dr Winslow?

Finally, here’s what the Novena Medical Centre website says about the good doctor

A/Prof. Muni Winslow MBBS, M.Med.(Psych), CMAC, CCS, FAMS

Munidasa Winslow has worked in general psychiatry and addiction medicine at the Institute of Mental Health since 1988. He was one of the pioneers responsible for the setting up and development of addiction services both in the hospital and in the community. His last appointment was as chief of the Addiction Medicine Department, IMH. He is recognised as an expert in addiction and impulse control disorders (alcohol, substance dependence, gambling, gaming, sexual compulsivity etc) in the Asia-Pacific region frequently speaking at conferences around the region. Despite being a fully qualified psychiatrist, he has taken the time and effort to maintain and develop his therapy/counselling skills as seen by his being accredited as a certified master addiction counsellor and a certified clinical supervisor. He has published and presented widely on both general psychological and addiction issues. He continues his academic and research interests through his academic appointments with Duke GMS and NUS and teaching in many medical and counselling courses. His passion is to help therapists develop and hone their skills to effect real change in those they seek to help.

http://www.novenamedicalcenter.com/our-doctors/dr-winslow-rasaiah-munidasa/

Update at 5.00am: Waz ASD?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is characterized by:

  • Persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction across multiple contexts;
  • Restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior, interests, or activities;
  • Symptoms must be present in the early developmental period (typically recognized in the first two years of life); and,
  • Symptoms cause clinically significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of current functioning.

Even children with ASD who have relatively good language skills often have difficulties with the back and forth of conversations. For example, because they find it difficult to understand and react to social cues, some highly verbal children with ASD often talk at length about a favorite subject, but they won’t allow anyone else a chance to respond or notice when others react indifferently.

Children with ASD who have not yet developed meaningful gestures or language may simply scream or grab or otherwise act out until they are taught better ways to express their needs. As these children grow up, they can become aware of their difficulty in understanding others and in being understood. This awareness may cause them to become anxious or depressed.

Arkham awaits Amos?/ Autism isn’t mental illness BUT …

In Uncategorized on 23/06/2015 at 4:54 am

(Update at 1.30pm:

Amos has been remanded at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) for two weeks pending a psychiatric report.

Before the State Courts on Tuesday (Jun 23), District Judge Jasvender Kaur said that a report by Dr Munidasa Winslow said that Yee may suffer from autism-spectrum disorder. This emerged from the reformative training suitability report, which found the accused physically and mentally suitable for reformative training.

CNA)

Later today, Amos may find out whether he’ll go to  to a Reformative Training Centre (RTC) for 18 months. In my NS days, former inmates of RTC had no fear of being sent to detention barracks: they had seen worse.

So RTC does seem rough for juz sliming Harry and Jesus?

But pls remember before sympathising with the “yaya papapaya” that is Amos, he had spat on the offer of probation that the state had preferred and which his lawyer and his doting mother Mary advised him to accept. And he has reposted the offending material, and posted nasty comments about the judge. And had earlier broken his bail conditions. He’s a one-man crime wave.

All these and the false allegation that his bailor had molested him and his flip floppng on an apology to the bailor, does make a tough sentence appropriate. He has sown the wind, and he shall reap the whirlwind.

Given that he has spent it seems 39 days in remand, only a long prison sentence will mean that he goes in and stays in for a while.

All in all 18 months in a RTC seems about right: keeps him out of mischief.

But people with political, anti-PAP agendas are refusing to see this and getting noisy, saying that he should not suffer the consequences of his misdeeds:

— s/o JBJ is KPKBing about Amo being a young political prisoner*.

— And the ang moh tua kees who poured out their anguish publicly but didn’t offer to stand bail are wailing in public again** despite Amos telling them what he tot of them forsaking him. He tot they were “horrible” (my word not his).

He is a special one because he slimed the Ninth Immottal and the 501dt Arhat?

DSC_0029 DSC_0106

But don’t be too surprised if he gets sent to the Institute of Mental Health (our very own Arkham***) for observation and possible treatment.

Remember that mother Mary says he has Asperger, a form of autism****, and SDP member and former ISD detainee Teo Soh Lung has said she has heard from Amos’s sympathisers that he is autistic.

While the UK’s Nation Health Service website says says that “autism is not a learning disability or a mental health problem”, it goes on to say that “some people with autism have an accompanying learning disability, learning difficulty or mental health problem”. http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Autism/Pages/Autismoverview.aspx

So if he gets sent to Woodbridge, remember you heard it here first.

———

*Wonder if there’ll be faeces on s/o JBJ’s face again? A few yrs ago when M Ravi was “maniac” and the Law Society was trying to get him to get treated, s/0 JBJ came out with a piece comparing M Ravi to Soviet dissidents who were classified by the state as “nuts”. When it turned out that M Ravi was really as sick as a parrot, s’o JBJ had to sit down and shut up.

**We note with alarm, a letter from Amos Yee’s lawyer stating that his client was recently placed on suicide watch while in remand. According to the letter, Amos was strapped down for one-and-a-half days, and kept in a room along with two other persons of unsound mind. He was also denied access to toilet facilities and had to relieve himself in a bottle next to his bed. It is unclear if Amos was given any counseling for harbouring suicidal thoughts.

CAN: Shelley Thio, Lynn Lee, Joshua Chiang, Jolovan Wham, Jennifer Teo, Woon Tien Wei, Rachel Zeng, Roy Ngerng and Martyn See.

Btw, they seem to think being in remand should be like in a Club Med holiday facility. He’s in prison, and is being treated like other inmates. Why should mother Mary’s child be treated better than other inmates? Because he slimed Harry?

***For those who are wondering, the Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane, called Arkham Asylum or juz Arkham is where many of Batman’s opponents are locked up for treatment.

When he is released, wil he come out changed like McMurphy in “One flew over a cuckoo’s best”? https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/06/02/amos-flew-over-the-cuckoos-nest/

****But then she says a lot of things: he’s ” fantastic”, “a liar” that always “tells the truth”. Maybe she too needs a visit to Arkham?

In Uncategorized on 15/06/2015 at 4:32 am

On Saturday TOC reported that his lawyer had written to the judge hearing his case saying that Amos claimed

the treatment that Yee was subject to that left him in “a state of depression and having severe suicidal thoughts” which was aggravated by his time spent in remand. He then told the prison officer that he was feeling suicidal.

“Regrettably, as a result of what Amos shared, Amos was taken to the prison medical facility and strapped to a bed in a medical facility for approximately one and a half days. This episode aggravated Amos’s suicidal thoughts. He was restrained with one of his hands and one of his legs strapped to the bed. Amos informed us that he could only sit up or lie down. He found it extremely difficult to urinate and defecate. He was expected to urinate into a jar at the side of the bed, which would be left there after he does so notwithstanding the pungent odors which would emanate. He had to bend down painfully against his straps in order to do so. In the said medical ward, Amos was surrounded by patients who were mentally unsound. One patient was constantly jerking against his chains and another one would talk to himself and be unresponsive to other people. Furthermore, the lights were never switched off throughout the day and was glaring into our client’s eyes such that he could hardly have any restful sleep.”*

Almost immediately a group of the people who whined about his earlier treatment (but as Amos pointed did bugger all to help him) came out with

We note with alarm, a letter from Amos Yee’s lawyer stating that his client was recently placed on suicide watch while in remand. According to the letter, Amos was strapped down for one-and-a-half days, and kept in a room along with two other persons of unsound mind. He was also denied access to toilet facilities and had to relieve himself in a bottle next to his bed. It is unclear if Amos was given any counseling for harbouring suicidal thoughts.

CAN: Shelley Thio, Lynn Lee, Joshua Chiang, Jolovan Wham, Jennifer Teo, Woon Tien Wei, Rachel Zeng, Roy Ngerng and Martyn See. (Note that TOC’s Andrew Loh and Terry Xu, And Vincent Law didn’t sign this time round. Amos slimed TOC.)

http://www.theonlinecitizen.com/2015/06/can-excessive-to-send-amos-to-a-reformative-training-centre/

And this on Facebook from one Nicole Ling

Some weeks ago, I told myself I’d refrain from making political posts and comments and I think I had pretty much adhered to that self-made agreement…well….until I received news about Amos Yee’s torture in prison. If the state wanna jail him, jail him. Be a man and accord a prisoner his own rights. If a prisoner reports he is unwell, feels depressed or suicidal, it is the prison’s responsibility and duty to provide the prisoner psychological support and counselling. You do not use brute force and physical torture on a someone without explanation. How does strapping Amos down, shining bright lights into his eyes all day, preventing him from movement, urination and defecation and humiliating him in every possible way remain helpful in rehabilitating a 16-year old boy?

You wanna charge the boy, go ahead but treat the prisoner fairly. Debate with him with logic and analysis. Challenge him intellectually with wit and reasons, but what you don’t do is resorting to physical torture because only cowards and bullies do that. So what’s all these torture and humiliation? What is the purpose of the torture? To break him down? To tear his spirits? To drive him to deeper suicidal thoughts? What do they really want? If a parent did the same thing to a child like what the prison did to Amos, would the parent be excused for merely “rehabilitating” the kid?

Err what if what he allges are still more lies?

Given that he lied about the allegation that his bailor, Vincent Law,molested him and flip floped on an apology to Vincent Law, I’m surprised that these good hearted, ang mog tua kee kay pohs dare trust him to tell the truth? Feeling guilty they talked cock, sing song while refusing to bail him. leaving him to rot in remand?

I mean even his doting mum says he’s a liar.

They had independent confirmation that he was “tortued”? I doubt it.

They’ll all look like a bigger bunch of fools than they already are if it turns out the allegations are untrue. Actually, no-one outside the remand system will know the truth. But given his track record of lying, the burden of proof is on him, not the system. All the authorities need to do is to deny the allegations and the majority of S’poreans will believe that he’s lying.

But their agenda, like that of the cybernuts who infest TRE, is to always slime the PAP in the hope that some mud will stick. They know, unlike the cybernuts, that 60-70% of S’poreans think they are irresponsible nuts.

Note that his lawyer did the right thing by his client and the legal profession in reporting Amos’s allegations to the judge. And I’m sure he didn’t leak the letter to TOC. Was it Mummy? She is so dotingly dumb that she can say her son a liar while in the next sentence says he tells the truth. I kid you not. She told that to Terry Xu. He posted the text conversation on his Facebook wall.

*Mummy and Amos thinking that remand should be a restful place? Hey it’s Harry’s Law that rules, not Mary Toh’s indulgences.

Amos “flew over the cuckoo’s nest”

In Uncategorized on 02/06/2015 at 4:30 am

(Update at 11.45 am:  Amos Yee Pang was remanded for three weeks as a report is made to assess whether he is suitable to serve reformative training. He rejected the option of probation and a term in the Reformative Training Centre (RTC) as a sentence, sticking to his original plea for a jail term. Yaya papaya: Think law is Mummy’s law. It’s Harry’s Law. Hehehe

Defence lawyer Alfred Dodwell cautioned against the RTC sentencing, noting that it was out of proportion to the offence Yee is charged for. The DPP said the Amos’s actions in re-uploading an image and video, and the various postings he made on his Facebook page after he was found guilty of his charges, should be taken in consideration as an indication of his conduct and character. Yup couldn’t agree more.)

If the judge makes a decision to send him to a Reformatory Training Centre (as demanded by the persecutors prosecution) later today, Amos Yee will be remanded for up to four weeks for a report to be conducted on his suitability for an RTC sentence. The irony is that “One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest”  did not feature in a recent blog post of his on the various films he liked. Hi should have given his situation. If he has not seen it, too bad for him as it is very relevant*. Maybe if he had seen it, he’d realise what he’s up against though I suspect he’d still have done what he did. But he’d have done so knowing what will happen to him. In the film an ex-army nurse Rached dominates a group of patients in a mental health institute. When new arrival McMurphy (played by Jack Nicholson in an Oscar winning performance) arrives he takes on Rached in a battle of wills and leads a rebellion of the inmates. Btw, he wasn’t nuts, he pretended to be nuts to escape going to prison. In the end, he is made into an imbecile by having part of his brain removed. Today drugs can control a person’s peronality: no need for surgery.

But then the tot crossed my mind that maybe Amos (if he saw the film) sees himself as McMurphy instigating a rebellion in the reform centre when he gets in, thinking that mummy wouldn’t let what happened to McMurphy happen to him.

Seriously, the state is demanding that Yee be send to a Reformatory Training Centre: “Reformative Training Centre is not jail,” the AGC insisted, saying that young offenders sentenced to such a programme have no contact with adult prison inmates. They may not have contact with adult prisioners, but I’ve heard that ex-RTC inmates are not afraid of being put into detention barracks when they do NS: they’ve experienced worse.

Yet another irony is that those sentenced to undergo the programme are detained for a minimum 18 months. The guy that slapped Amos should be out soon, if he’s not already out.

A further irony is that the four week detention for a report to be conducted on his suitability for an RTC sentence, if the judge makes a decision in favour of RTC, does not count against the 18 months. Mummy’s “fantastic” darling really stitched himself real good. Well he did compare himself to Nelson Mandela https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/05/15/amos-intelligence-is-an-over-rated-trait-2/. Btw, Mandela was no mummy’s darling.

————————

 *Maybe Shelly Thio should share it with him. According to Roy, she gave him books to read when he was about to go into remand. Didn’t offer bail though. A friend in need is a friend in deed. She’s real a good hearted kay poh that believes ang mohs are tua kees.

Amos: Only mum is still a fan

In Uncategorized on 22/05/2015 at 4:41 am

Reading Amos’s Facebook page is not only a barrel of laughs, but it also shows that he lives in a different universe.

Example 1: He calls Vincent Law a coward for not responding to his allegations*. What he doesn’t realise is that Vincent has won in the court of public opinion: no need to respond.

Example 2: He produces “evidence” about the “emotional abuse” that he got from Vincent. Evidence? What evidence?

Example 3: He claims that people are convinced by his diatribes.

Never mind, more evidence to throw Amos into Arkham (where those of Batman’s enemies considered to be mentally ill are confined) and throw away the key. I’m sure the PAP, their supporters and the anti-PAP activists will be happy.

Seriously, can anyone be surprised that the Community Action Network’ (made up of Shelley Thio, Rachel Zeng, Jennifer Teo, Woon Tien Wei, Terry Xu, Roy Ngerng, Martyn See, Jolovan Wham, Lynn Lee, Kirsten Han and another**) has decided to keep quiet? As have the individuals?

“Given the rhetoric against Yee, and the numerous threats to his safety, he should have been “committed to a place of safety or a place of temporary care and protection” under the Children and Young Persons Act. Instead, he is now back in remand, over his failure to abide by his bail conditions.

CAN believes that the conditions imposed on Yee are unnecessarily onerous. Apart from having to report to his Investigating Officer every day, he is also barred from posting anything online. This curtailment of Yee’s right to express himself doesn’t just infringe on his constitutional rights as a citizen, it is also disproportionate to the charges he is currently facing.” 

Given his antics of defaming his ex-bailor they should be repenting of their words publicly.

As should s/0 JBJ, Andrew Loh, Maruah and a drug mule groupie who were all defending Amos’s right to insult Harry.

https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/05/03/amos-even-dumber-comments-parental-responsibility/

They should have the balls to apologise to S’poreans for supporting Amos, and for blaming society for Amos’s antics.

Interesting that Amos has denounced his activist “supporters”; denouncing them for talking the talk but not walking the talk: the activist friends would have happily let him rot in remand, while pontificating to society on the harm that being in remand would do him.

Something I had pointed out at the time: https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/04/22/amos-talk-is-cheap-very-cheap-harry-really-needs-no-monument/

On this denouncement, he is right. At least he has learnt that the likes of Andrew Loh, Kirsten Han, Lynn Lee, Roy and s/o JBJ are talk cock sing song artistes, with their anti-PAP agenda. Never mind, he still has mummy who thinks he’s fantastic https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/05/13/amos-mummys-pet/. She even defends his lying as “as a need to”. Huh?

He was being used. Amos Yee, master manipulator was been had. Master manipulator? What master manipulator?

Coming back to fact that that he lives in a different universe.Maybe the cybernuts that infest TRE should invite him into their world, now that they’ve thrown out one Goh Meng Seng from cybernut land even though he was a founder member of the place. But Amos is likely to decline as Roy is a cybernut hero and he has fallen out with Roy. Seems Roy not happy with his “molest” comment about Vincent Law.
*If he didn’t defame Vincent Law and flip flop on apologies (After all he did write: I am extremely remorseful for the turmoil that I have caused to Vincent and his family, for the allegations towards him that he molested me,), he has really valid points about Vincent’s behaviour, if Amos’s allegations are true. I’d be pretty annoyed if I had been Amos, assuming he’s telling the truth. As it is I can understand why he preferred to remain in remand, assuming he isn’t lying.

All those cavaets above are to emphasie that Amos is as credible to me as the cybernuts that infest TRE.

**At least Vincent Law tried.

Amos: Intelligence is an over-rated trait?

In Uncategorized on 15/05/2015 at 6:05 am

Maybe character is a more splendour thing?

And that the PAP administration isn’t the one to prize intelligence, so do the heroes of the anti-PAP cybernuts. The difference is how they define “intelligence”. The PAP believes that “intelligence” is largely the ability to pass exams with flying colours and to praise the PAP; the other lot believe that “intelligence” is the insight that “The PAP is always wrong”.

The above crossed my mind during, and after reading a well written piece (as usual) by Alfian Sa’at on his Facebook page about Amos Yee.

For my money, Amos’s dad got it about right: “Yes, he’s intelligent. But he’s not wise.”

I don’t expect any 16-year kid; I’d have said “Yes, he’s intelligent. But he lacks character*.” Like his dad, I think, that there are more important attributes than “intelligence”. Attributes like scepticism, EQ, not playing to the rabble and pragmatism.

Anyway onto the piece with my commentary. My comments are interspersed in normal type within brackets.

I wasn’t planning on writing about Amos Yee, but I’m quite upset by the way the media is painting him—with insinuations that he might fall within the autism spectrum, that he is so psychologically disturbed that he needs psychiatric evaluation, that there is something about his behaviour that might be ‘abnormal’. [Err, your fellow traveller, Teo Soh Lung has written that some Amos sympathisers told her he is autistic.]

I had the pleasure of having supper with Amos and his family. The mother, Mary Yee, is a twinkly-eyed lady who would lean in to listen to you speak. She looked perpetually curious and attentive, her head craning around even as she hugged her floral tote bag close to her. One could speculate that she’s passed on some of that inquisitiveness to her only child.

“You know Amos wanted to change his name?” she told us.

“Why?”

“Because his full name is Amos Yee Pang Sang. And in school the kids used to tease him and called him ‘Anus Yee Pang Sai’. You know ‘pang sai’ in Hokkien means to ‘pass motion’.”

I wanted to ask if he had wanted to change the name ‘Amos’, or ‘Pang Sang’, or both. But I took a quick glance at Amos, who was scowling, and spotted the thought bubble over his head that said, ‘Mum, please, don’t embarrass me in front of these people’. So I left it at that.

The father, Alphonsus Yee, was a bit more reserved, a burly man who rides a motorcycle and who would stand around with his arms crossed, palms cupping his elbows. It seemed to me that the mother still thought of her son’s antics as an enduring source of mystery, whereas the father had reached his limit with such unsolvable enigmas. I tried to break the ice with the father by saying, “I think your son is very intelligent.”

And the father said wearily, “Yes, he’s intelligent. But he’s not wise.”

And what about Amos himself? He’s a waif of a teenager, very pale, with painfully narrow shoulders, and it seemed as if his shock of unruly hair was an attempt to add some mass to a wispy frame. He had a habit of stroking his chin before he spoke, which I found quite endearing, because chin-stroking is the aspirational gesture of kids who want to be taken seriously—as intellectuals. I asked Amos who his favourite film director was.

[Above shows what a fine descriptive writer Affin is. And a most lyrical one too.]

“I love Stanley Kubrick,” he said.

“Yeah? He’s good, but I wasn’t too sold on Barry Lyndon,” I said. “It’s too mannered for me.”

“Oh, but have you watched it twice?”

“So it rewards repeat viewing?”

“I guarantee.”

[I agree with Amos on Kubrick and Barry Lyndon.]

Amos has very strong opinions; and honestly he reminded me of a precocious teenager—self-possessed, intensely loyal to things he loved, but not to the point where he would shut himself from discovering other works.

“If you love 2001: A Space Odyssey,” I said, “You should check out Solaris by Tarkovsky.”

“You mean there’s a sci-fi film that’s as good as Space Odyssey?”

[OMG, Space Odyssey for all its spectacular shots, it is a really pretentious film. Best sci-ft films are ET and Forbidden Planet. Never saw Solaris but listened to a BBC Radio play based on it: good plot.  

“Maybe even better. I guarantee.”

He nodded, and stroked that chin again. And then we got to the subject of the video. I told him, “I agreed with what you said about LKY**, but did you really have to mention Christians? [Geat minds think alike? Or Birds of a feather flock together?] You could have made your point just by saying that those fawning and swooning over him acted like they were part of a cult.”

“But all religions are cults.”

“Okay, then why pick on Christians? You could have said something about religious fervour without being so specific about it.”

[Christians don’t riot. And most probably Amos tot, that they, unlike Muslims, don’t file police reports on any perceived insult. He was wrong dead wrong. Lionel de Sousa (Everyone’s guilty until proven innocent) is a Catholic].

“But Christianity is the religion I know best.”

[Good point that the cybernuts who infest TRE’s comments pages should think about: Don’t talk cock on things you don’t know nuts about. Yup, looking at you Ng Kok Lim: the Sandinistas of Nicaragua were never “Communists” as you said they were***.]

And there it was. ‘But’, the favourite word of any mouthy teenager who thinks that adults, with their unexamined conventions, are vaguely ridiculous. “And how about all that swearing,” I said, putting on my fuddy-duddy hat. [Not fuddy-daddy to warn against the use of vulgarity. But then he is the guy who wanted to dance on the grave of a NMP critical of gays.] “What if it turned people off from the substance of what you were saying?”

“But that’s just how I express myself. I’m being true to myself.”

[That’s intelligent? That’s typical BS of any anyone pretentious.]

“You have to ask yourself if it’s essential to your message. I think you make your videos to communicate something to your audience. I understand your need to be authentic, but sometimes your audience trips up on the expletives and they’ll stop listening.”

[Yup]

“But sometimes swearing is the message itself.”

“Yes Amos, I’ve watched enough Scorcese and Tarantino to know that.”

“And those are great examples!”

[Yes cock but are you as good as Scorcese and Tarantin?]

I smiled and didn’t tell him that he was as far away from a gangster or hitman as anyone could imagine. And then the subject turned to remand and jail.

Amos said, “Why should we worry about jail? Look at Mandela, he fought for a righteous cause and he went to jail too.”

[He must be nuts, comparing himself to a very dignified, courteous who risked his life rebelling against an apartheid state.]

At which point Ivan Heng, who was at the table, rolled his eyes and said, “Darling, you’re not Mandela. So in the meantime you just stay out of trouble.”

Amos looked a little chastened, and I could see that he was aware that the analogy he offered risked making him out as someone with delusions of grandeur. Glen Goei, who was at the table as well (supper was on him), said, “Maybe you’re not afraid for yourself. But think about your parents. Don’t you think they’ll worry if you go to jail?”

“But we can’t always live our lives based on what our parents might think of us.”

“We’re just asking you to put yourself in their shoes,” Glen said.

Amos stroked his chin again. I could see a retort simmering—“if I were a parent I’d want my child to act according to his conscience…to live as a free and principled human being…to have the moral courage to stand by his actions.” But Amos held his peace.

[Low EQ kid who thinks intelligence is that impt]

So here’s my take on this whole absurd affair: Amos Yee, as a teenager, is as normal as they come. They chafe at authority, will always look for wriggle room and bargaining leverage, have a sharp instinct for pointing out adult contradictions and hypocrisies, and speak in a language of ‘but’s’ and ‘why not’s’ that are designed to try your patience. Any attempt to ‘discipline’ him becomes a contest of wills; you can slap bail conditions on him but if he thinks they are unfairly punitive (even before any conviction) then you can expect brinksmanship and defiance. With teenagers like these, you can try reasoning with them but you must also be prepared to confront the idea that your reason is actually unreasonable. What is abnormal is that because of the charges against him, all this is being played out on a much larger stage. And this I think is the tragedy of the whole thing: when a brat acts up—and of course Amos can be taunting and bratty—the best thing that you can do is to ignore him and let him exhaust himself.

[No, a normal kid has a better sense of proportion. Btw, with an attitude like this, he’ll be a dead man in NS.]

But no, some people decided to get all sanctimonious, and we end up with the sorry spectacle of an adult smacking a child mercilessly in a shopping aisle. We don’t think of the child as being uncontrollable at that moment; no, it is the adult who has lost all self-control. And this is how it looks like to me—the people who filed those police reports, the 8 policemen who arrested Amos at his house, the AGC, the man who smacked Amos outside the State Courts, Bertha Henson, Lionel de Souza, the journalists who keep misreporting the case—all of you look so violent, hysterical, foolish and feeble. In trying to solve a ‘problem’ like Amos Yee you’ve only ended up displaying your own problems and neuroses–your pettiness, your cruelty, your beastliness, your insecurity–in all their garish detail.

[Err Amos, his fellow travellers and their cybernut followers made these guys look good, really good. I’m planning to send a carton of Tiger Beer to the office of the guy that slapped Amos. Ever heard of giving someone a second chance?]

But don’t get too upset with Amos even after his comments about a good Samaritan. One of these days, I’ll tell you why he’d wish he were dead. He will be going thru hell soon (OK in June).

*If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son.

IF by Kipling

Thinking about it, Amos senior has loads of character what with a dysfunctional wife and son.

**Wonder if they would say that LKY could have uttered the words of O’Brien in 1984:

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were- cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.

***And while denouncing me for not saying that Chin Peng said that the MCP never controlled the Barisan Socialists (something I never said), he left out that Chin Peng said “Operation Cold Store shattered our underground network throughout the island. Those who escaped the police net went into hiding. Many fled to Indonesia“.

 

Amos: Mummy’s pet?

In Uncategorized on 13/05/2015 at 10:25 am

Amos “lacks a sense of boundaries and empathy for other people,” said youth counsellor Vincent Law, who posted bail for him, to the BBC. [Update on 14 May 1.40 pm: Mr Vincent Law, 51, family … has told TOC that he is demanding Amos Yee to make an unreserved apology and a full retraction of the molest allegation made against him on Wednesday afternoon.

16-year old blogger, Amos Yee .. had made an allegation of molest against his former bailor, Mr Vincent Law, which he then clarified [7 hours later] to be an act of “trolling” on the reporters from the Mainstream Media (MSM). Mummy must really be proud.]

Because he has a doting mum who thinks he’s “fantastic” and is always makes excuses for him? “Amos is always right,” would seem to be her mantra.

Yee’s mother, Mary, told the BBC that her son was “a fantastic child, perhaps born in the wrong country”.  [Update on 14 May at 1.40pm: Actually the right country. Someone may punp bullets into him in the US for annoying. In S’pore, he gets slapped by a stranger, and human rights activists, blame society. Friends of Amos are screaming on TRE that the slapper got off too lightly: he should be hanged instead of getting three weks jail.]

She described him as a precocious boy who loved reading and making videos.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-32604122

It’s a wonder that dad doesn’t go bananas with such a dysfunctional wife and son. Respect, this man who said to Alfian Sa’at: “Yes, he’s intelligent. But he’s not wise.”

I’ll be blogging my tots of Alfian Sa’at’s piece on Amos one of these days.

Amos lacked this?/ Hope judge, activists do this

In Uncategorized on 12/05/2015 at 4:52 am

(Update at 6.00pm Amos Yee has been granted bail pending a suitability for probation report in 4 weeks. Bail is at $10,000 – TOC)

(Update at 4.30pm: Amos found guilty, wants to go to jail. The prosecution said the main sentencing consideration should be for rehabilitation and called for counselling and appropriate probation. Details at end of article.)

Today, the judge will deliver her verdict on Amos’s case.

If the judge finds him guilty, accepting the AGC’s arguments, I hope she will ask for a psychiatrist’s report before deciding on a suitable sentence*.

It’s usual to get the National Mental Institute to provide such a report. But maybe real civil society activists, people like P Ravi**, Lynn Lee, Richard Wan, and Terry Xu (Btw, Roy Ngerng, Andrew Loh and Teo Soh Lung, a SDP member, were attending the trial), will arrange funding for him to also see a private psychiatrist to assure themselves, and anti-PAP activists and their cybernut fellow travellers that Amos is not being “fixed” (or “fixed” if the diagnosis differs from the National Mental Institute) on medical grounds.

M Ravi’s psychiatrist would be a good choice because since he’s M Ravi’s personally chosen psychiatrist, even cybernuts accept that M Ravi has a mental health problem, and that the Law Society’s latest actions against M Ravi is not a “fix”. M Ravi had really gone “bananas”: he never did try to go to court to challenge the Law Soc’s suspension. The good news is that he’s recovering. I think he attended the real May Day at Hong Lim.

If he is autistic, this should come as no surprise not only to mainstream media readers but also to readers of Teo Soh Lung’s Facebook page. While the constructive, nation-building media speculated on his possible autism, Ms Teo wrote on her Facebook page that she was told he was autistic.

Let’s be serious, maybe the real root of Amos’s problem is that Amos never had a dog to pet or a rabbit to  cuddle? [T]he research shows that children facing emotional difficulties, such as “bereavement, divorce, instability and illness” place a particular importance on their pets.

http://www.bbc.com/news/education-32608771

Maybe the Pet minister can arrange for him to have a suitable pet dog? Err tunour has it that a certain FT MP’s “Blackie” is not happy. Maybe Amos would give it the TLC that this FT MP is allegedly not giving the dog, who ran way a few years ago when the FT MP adopted him.

Wants to be a martyr

Amos Yee Pang was found guilty and convicted of two charges for making offensive or wounding remarks against Christianity and another for circulating obscene imagery.

CNA reports

He had pleaded not guilty to both charges on May 7. No witness took the stand during the trial. Defence lawyer Alfred Dodwell said that Yee’s police statement is sufficient in explaining Yee’s stance. A third charge, for the 16-year-old’s statements on the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew in a YouTube video, was withdrawn.

In the plea for sentencing Yee’s lawyer Alfred Dodwell said the teen does not want to be considered for probation and wanted to be sentenced according to a jail term. The prosecution said the main sentencing consideration should be for rehabilitation and called for counselling and appropriate probation. 

The defence called for a fine or two weeks’ jail with the jail term taking into consideration the time that Yee had already spent in remand. Mr Dodwell said Yee has spent close to 18 days in remand.

*Whether a person is or is not guilty is for the courts and what the punishment should be, is also for the courts. But we have amended the law quite substantially to allow the courts a range of options in these matters,” Mr Shanmugam, the Pet minister, said.

**Yes, yes, I know he is a member of the Chiams’ party, but he’s a fair-minded guy even after he was named in parly by Yaacob for spreading a rumour.

Amos: Misled or misunderstood the law?

In Internet, Uncategorized on 07/05/2015 at 4:39 am

Today, Amos will stand trial and if he’s going to base his defence on his “right” of free speech, he should think again given that yesterday, a high court judge dismissed his application that the bail conditions, which forbid him from uploading or distributing any content online until his case has concluded, amounted to a gag order*.

It seems he believes in a constitutional right to suka suka say what he likes: Yee was remanded after the pre-trial conference, as he refused to set his blog posts to private. He had earlier flouted bail conditions by publishing two posts on his blog. His lawyer Alfred Dodwell said the teen feels very strongly that he has not done anything wrong with his posts.

“The Constitution does provide for a person to have the freedom of speech and expression, hence he feels very strongly that he is just doing that,” said Mr Dodwell**. (CNA last Friday).

Well M Ravi, Maruah and all the other ang moh tua kee kay pohs will be cheering Amos on (There’s a soccer match going on, the poor boy [Amos] is the ball, and the crowd watches in morbid fascination as the own-goals pile up on both sides. The new normal way to win, wrote a perceptive reader of this article https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/04/21/amos-parents-finally-got-it-walk-the-talk-amoss-groupies/#comments).

Sadly for Amos, the constitution is pretty clear on the limits on free speech here.

(2)  Parliament may by law impose —

(a)
on the rights conferred by clause (1)(a), such restrictions as it considers necessary or expedient in the interest of the security of Singapore or any part thereof, friendly relations with other countries, public order or morality and restrictions designed to protect the privileges of Parliament or to provide against contempt of court, defamation or incitement to any offence;***
Pretty clear ain’t it. There are a lot of exceptions to freedom of speech here. The bolded words mean, and the courts have said so too, that it’s very easy to limit free speech here: just pass a law thru parly.
So where did this boy get the idea that in S’pore we have the kind of freedom of speech that people in the US and PinoyLand have? We don’t. There is the right of free speech but only in very limited circumstances. And S’poreans seem happy with the situation. Since the 1960s, S’pore has been a de-facto one-party state: the PAP wins general elections with majorities of over 60%, often a lot more.
Here’s something that Amos should read https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/will-m-ravis-barrage-of-constitutional-challenges-change-anything/
(Related post: https://atans1.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/m-ravis-grandfathers-parliament-is-it/)
So where did this boy get the idea that in S’pore we have the kind of freedom of speech that people in the US and PinoyLand have? Whether he was misled on or misunderstood the law on freedom of speech here, Amos’s failure to understand the law relating to free speech here shows the power of cyberspace: he like many young people is a cybernaut.
Mr Cheong Yip Seng (LKY’s favourite newsman, ex-ST chief editor) told us of an incident which showed that LKY was aware of the impact of new media. One November evening in 1999, Mr Lee telephoned Mr Cheong. He was troubled by a new information phenomenon, which was threatening to overwhelm the traditional media industry: eyeballs were migrating from print newspapers to cyberspace. Mr Cheong said that LKY was anxious about how the information revolution would impact the Singapore traditional media.

“He was anxious to find a response that would enable the mainstream media to keep its eyeballs. He wanted us at Singapore Press Holdings to think about the way forward.”

Well SPH, and the rest of constructive, nation-building media didn’t do what they were ordered to, did they? That despite throwing serious money and other resources at the problem.

Cybernauts. do not think the “right” tots.

For society the problem is that in cyberspace, anything goes. There is plenty of misleading information and lies out there from the likes of Roy Ngerng and Ng Kok Lim. And there is the bigotry of lazy abstraction, when commenting: “PAP always wrong”. (Mind you this does balance the “PAP is always right” of the SPH and MediaCorp publications, channels and stations.)

Then there is the issue of only listening to others who share one’s views and values, rather than being exposed to different views. Again the SPH and MediaCorp publications, channels and stations do the same, to be fair to cyberspace.

*“We have informed the court from the outset that the bail conditions are too wide and in violation of his constitutional rights to freedom of speech and expression,” Mr Alfred Dodwell, Amos Yee’s lawyer, said.“How can one place a gag order when he has not even been found guilty? So we had to challenge it.”(TOC)
ST reported: Mr Dodwell said that being on social media was “the equivalent of him drinking water” and the conditions were “taking away a lot from him.”

During the hearing, Justice Tay Yong Kwang asked Mr Dodwell what was so difficult about complying with these social media conditions. “They just have to learn to curb themselves,” he said.

They face the consequences of that action.”

Amos: Even dumber comments / Parental Responsibility

In Uncategorized on 03/05/2015 at 5:25 pm

Tomorrow, Monday, Amos will again appear in court.

Here I said that Amos had changed for the better before his last court appearance. Well I looked like a real cock when he ended up in remand again. At least he was decently dressed and wasn’t eating a banana when he entered court. But while not playing up to the gallery, he was quietly stubborn, hence the remand. He refused to set his blog posts to private. He had earlier broken bail conditions by publishing two posts on his blog.

So I’m glad to report that there are even dumber comments than mine, coming from the usual heroes of the anti-PAP cybernuts:

KJ TeamRP

This is disgraceful. This is nothing less than state-sponsored violence against a child for saying considerably less than Lee Kuan Yew got away with. Edit:I say this is state-sponsored because the media is Government-owned and controlled and the Government and its leaders have failed to take steps to protect Amos Yee. By their silence they have encouraged their supporters to take the law into their own hands. If anything happens to Amos, his blood is on Lee Hsien Loong’s hands.

Can he provide evidence that the state “sponsored” the one tight slap? But then this is the guy who when M Ravi went “bananas” a few yrs back, drew parallels with the Soviet Union’s labeling of dissidents as “insane”. Sorry can’t find the link to that great own goal by s/o JBJ.

From a Do-Gooder who doean’t want drug mules hanged

I’ve always felt that Amos Yee is unsafe in Singapore. Cyber terrorism against this boy has escalated to physical street violence. Truly, I’m beginning to worry about his safety and wouldn’t be surprised if this boy dies from an assault one day. For his own safety, Amos should obtain a scholarship from a university in the U.S. and live there as an American citizen. He would flourish in a western country who celebrates and welcomes his intelligence, uniqueness and individuality.

If he goes West, he might get killed by someone who takes exception to his antics. And gd US unis don’t suka suka give scholarships to kids who misbahave. Dime a dozen in the ghettos. Real stupid ang moh tua kee this lady.

Shelley Thio, Rachel Zeng, Jennifer Teo, Woon Tien Wei, Terry Xu, Roy Ngerng, Martyn See, Jolovan Wham, Lynn Lee, Kirsten Han, Vincent Law

“Given the rhetoric against Yee, and the numerous threats to his safety, he should have been “committed to a place of safety or a place of temporary care and protection” under the Children and Young Persons Act. Instead, he is now back in remand, over his failure to abide by his bail conditions.

CAN believes that the conditions imposed on Yee are unnecessarily onerous. Apart from having to report to his Investigating Officer every day, he is also barred from posting anything online. This curtailment of Yee’s right to express himself doesn’t just infringe on his constitutional rights as a citizen, it is also disproportionate to the charges he is currently facing.”

The Community Action Network’s statement on Amos Yee’s charges and the assault on Amos Yee outside of state court On Thursday. None of whom bothered to stand bail on Friday. At least two of them were in court.

Scared to lose their money? Mr Law (the previous bailor) may forfeit S$20,000. This will depend on the outcome of a separate hearing.

Andrew Loh

Now, has anyone asked if Amos Yee has received medical attention for his injuries? 

Going by photo he placed in article asking the above: Injuries? What injuries? As a former prop who played for school and SAF, I’ve come out of rugger matches looking a lot worse than this.Amos Yee, with bruised eye

MARUAH

MARUAH strongly condemns this act of violence and intimidation. This is not the way a mature and civilised society deals with opinions and opinion-makers.

One guy slaps this boy and whole S’pore society gets blamed? WTF?

A very sensible retort to the above BS:  especially the last three

does he deserve to be beaten in public? no. does he deserve to be given one tight slap? yes.

(Facebook)

I’ll be serious. Bertha Henson (aka retired Imperial Stormtroop general, paper division, and wannabe Seth Lord) got a lot of unfair flack because of the” vicarious pleasure” she got in seeing Amos getting slapped.

She could and should have explained it better; what having been a senior spin doctor for Harry and the PAP.

Self and many others were appalled that the parents didn’t slap or cane him for his boorish behaviour. Seeing him getting slapped, albeit in breach of the law, made us feel that moral justice was done. I think Ms Henson felt the same.

Finally, I emailed the following to someone above in CAN who I respect because he believes in fighting injustice, and tries to do something, not juz talk about it. Never got a reply.

If you guys were not so anti-PAP administration, you should be asking why parents don’t ask for him to be examined by Mental Health Institute. I suspect they scared if he found to have mental health problem.
 
At his age the law assumes that parents have the primary responsibility and it defers to them. Doubtless this doesn’t suit the agenda of some people. LOL.
 
Roy was there on Friday, why no offer bail. Talk is cheap, very cheap.  

Amos in remand again

In Uncategorized on 30/04/2015 at 6:34 pm

Amos Yee was remanded after the pre-trial conference, as he refused to set his blog posts to private. He had earlier flouted bail conditions by publishing two posts on his blog.

Unless someone one bails him ($30,000), he’ll remain in remand until 4th May. His parents again did not bail him.

Will we see an ang moh tua kee activist step forward? Or another kind Christian? The previous good Samaritan declined to bail him a second time.

Wonder what made him go wacko again. Everything had been planned as I reported this morning.

Amos: A changed boy/ Why M Ravi went “bananas”/ Misreped again and again

In Uncategorized on 30/04/2015 at 5:24 am

Update at 5.30 am 1 May: Not bailed: in remand until Monday https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/04/30/amos-in-remand-again/

(Update at 2.40pm: What can I say? I forgot to check his Facebook page, website before I posted LOL this morning. Let’s hope he doesn’t go to court earting a banana. I’d be a right Charlie ((((((.)

(Update at 4.55pm: Phew he wasn’t eating a banana and was dressed in smart casual. 

And no, I’m not the guy in red who slapped him. Bet you the ang moh tua kees and their cybernut allies will be screaming that he should have had police protection. And that it was all a plot to intimidate him.)

(Update at 5.20pm: Yup, political figures are suggesting that it’s a disgrace it happened outside court. Thinking about it, maybe he needs to be in remand until his trial because his life is in danger?)

Amos Yee will appear in court today for a pre-trial conference.

I’ve been told, he’ll no longer be a ya ya papaya eating a banana to show that he doesn’t give a hoot about the law. And no, my source is not my Morocco Mole who once told me that WP would support the PAP’s immigration white paper. https://atans1.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/wp-will-vote-for-the-white-paper-moley/ 

Seems his parents gamble in refusing to bail him paid-off. His spell in remand has sobered him up considerably.

I also understand that his lawyers will be asking for a postponement of the trial because they want to make representations to the AGC along the lines that he has repented (an apology is being drafted) and that the time spent in remand (four nights and three days) is more than sufficient punishment as a consequence.

Hopefully a fair and reasonable deal can be struck so that the only fruscos will be those ang moh tua kees and their anti-PAP cybernut allies who want him to be martyred for the anti-PAP cause; and those who want him hanged or caned for insulting Harry. All three groups are equally deserving of the scorn of reasonable people.

Though given his past behaviour (before remand to be fair), he could prove today that I’m talking cock about a changed boy. He may decide to revert to a ya ya papaya to secure the approval of the mob, and stick a finger into his parents’, bailor’s and lawyers’ eyes.

But if he remains quai chye, those who saw him as a human rights poster boy because he insulted the memory of one Harry Lee will spin a different tale.

Humans right activist, ISD detainee and 2011 SDP MP candidate wrote on her FB on 23 April : And at the pre trial conference last Friday, he was also handcuffed and led out of Court No. 17 into the holding area for alleged adult offenders. I am told he looked terrified.

So poor Amos spent several days among alleged adult offenders. I am told he is banging the wall and going crazy. He is apparently autistic.

Well going by the way he behaved when he was finally bailed last Tueday, by a Christian, not by a human rights wimp activist or an anti-PAP activist, it doesn’t look as though he was “nuts”or terrified. Here’s him waving.Image result for amos yee + pre-trial conference

Btw, it seems one Ng Kok Lim cannot help but misrepresent me. In his second latest BS* on TRE he claimed I sympathised with Amos Yee, quoting me out of context, and saying I too didn’t help Amos. He conveniently left out the link I put in the article he selective choses quotes from: that he should be caned. Err that sympathy? But then that point disturbs the narrative of the misrepresentation,

*In his latest piece, he shows that he read a lot of my pieces, yet quotes and misrepresents me, Chin Peng and the Plen extensively. (He makes Roy look like a paragon of truth on CPF when it’s a fact that Roy admitted that he lied about PM stealing our CPF**. M Ravi had a problem explaining to the court hearing the case why this admission shouldn’t be taken into account by the judge.)

Yet Ng cannot point to anything I wrote  over the years that called certain leftists “communists” as he alleged when he screamed: CI is making the same unqualified smearing of the Lefitsts by the PAP by labeling them as communists like those in Cuba and so on. Where is CI’s proof that the leftists were actually communists? https://atans1.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/seek-truth-from-facts-tre-commentators-dont-misrepresent-me/

I ask him again: Where did I ever call the Coldstore detainees “communists”?

Ng may have wished I called some leftists “communists”, but where’s the proof?

**https://atans1.wordpress.com/2014/08/06/roys-defence-has-me-confused/ Since then I’ve been told that one of the reasons why M Ravi went “bananas” and had to stop practising law, was Roy’s refusal to listen to his advice.

Amos: Talk is cheap, very cheap/ Harry really needs no monument

In Uncategorized on 22/04/2015 at 4:53 am

Over the weekend, a Facebook post* bemoaning the charges against Amos Yee and his remand had many “Likes”, sympathetic comments,  and a few shares. It ended:  And the rest of us? The rest of us should play happily and gratefully in the corner we’ve so conscientiously painted ourselves into. The rest of must remember never to participate in the dangerous act of boundary-crossing. A 16-year-old did, and he is now being treated like a criminal – because jailing a child makes Singapore a much better place.

Looks like the writer and those who shared her sentiments really decided to  play happily and gratefully in the corner we’ve so conscientiously painted ourselves into. The rest of must remember never to participate in the dangerous act of boundary-crossing.

No-one came forward to post bail on Monday and it was only on late Tuesday (at 6.00 pm) that  family counsellor Vincent Law posted bail for him. 

Mr Law said that he came forward to post the S$20,000 bail as he is a Christian, and wanted to show he was not offended by Yee’s posts. “It seems the charges say he made disparaging remarks about Christianity. I’m a Christian and I’m stepping up to say I’m not offended,” he said, adding that he, too, is a parent.

The 51-year-old, who is not related to the Yee family, hopes that Yee will also be willing to be counselled by him, and that he may respond better to a third party. (CNA)

Three cheers for him, even though Amos Yee’s parents would it seems have preferred to have kept him in remand by refusing to bail him.

Three cheers too for Alfred Dodwell, Chong Jia Hao from Dodwell & Co LLC, and Ervin Tan from Michael Hwang Chambers LLC told the court they would be acting for Yee pro bono.(CNA)

They too cared.

And jeers and sneers for those who claim to support, sympathise Amos Yee but who stood aside. The absence of the anti-PAP cybernuts who pollute the comments section of TRE is not surprising. They after all are unwilling to fund TRE.

But where were the ang moh tua kee human rights activists like Kirsten Han (she wrote an eloquent, sympathetic piece on him in Yahoo) and the lady who so eloquently blogged on Amos? They left him to rot in jail, while they eloquently proclaimed his right (duty?) to slime one Harry Lee Kuan Yew, and hurt the feelings of 20-odd S’poreans? Seems, he’s a flag or mascot, not a human being to these ang moh tua kees.

My serious point is that these ang moh tua kee “activists” cannot be taken seriously. They are notprepared to walk the walk, just talk the walk.

LKY needs no monument. So long as these people are around, Harry will be remembered. He had contempt for them, and rightly so.

I hope Amos Yee will reflect on the kind of supporters he has. With friends like cybernuts and ang moh tua kee “activists”, he doesn’t need enemies.

I hope he apologises for his actions and agrees to be counselled. And I hope the AGC drops the charges in return. Let’s remember, he has spent four nights in jail.

*A 16-year-old is spending the weekend in prison because of a YouTube video. His parents have decided not to post bail. It’s likely they’re holding back for fear the boy might breach some very onerous conditions imposed by the court. I imagine it must be stressful to have a child who insists on pushing boundaries – pushing hard despite knowing full well that doing so might mean serious trouble. The boy’s parents must be under immense pressure***.

But what boundaries did this kid breach? He insulted a dead politician. He made fun of a religious figure. He was rude. He was arrogant. He was “dumb” not to back down. And when authorities hauled him off to court, he smiled and ate a banana. How dare he? This boy, this attention-seeking child who won’t play by the rules we’ve all been conditioned to follow.

Twenty-one people thought it was their duty as upstanding citizens to report the boy for his behavior. The fabric of our society is apparently so fragile, so poorly woven together, one YouTube video is all it takes to tear us apart.

No one seems to be asking why we think so little of this fabric. Why are we not made of stronger stuff?

Even before the boy was arrested, one man openly fantasized about castrating the child and stuffing his private parts into his mouth. Online, other people said he should be put in prison, whipped, whacked, exiled. When the police came for him, a collective squeal of glee erupted across the Internet. Adults celebrated. They knew this would happen. It served him right. The kid, apparently, had it coming. He was fully aware that he’d crossed some invisible line, but he was not repentant. Even worse, he appeared to relish the limelight.

But was the line was in the right place, or even necessary to begin with?

And now, the boy is spending the weekend in prison. Police handcuffed him when they led him out of court. He is to be tried as an adult.

Twenty-one Singaporeans can congratulate themselves for defending the nation against a 16-year-old. For safeguarding the boundaries. For being offended enough, concerned enough, patriotic enough to set the police on a child.

And the rest of us? The rest of us should play happily and gratefully in the corner we’ve so conscientiously painted ourselves into. The rest of must remember never to participate in the dangerous act of boundary-crossing. A 16-year-old did, and he is now being treated like a criminal – because jailing a child makes Singapore a much better place.

Remember the person behind this angst is a groupie of convicted drug mule groupies, loving them to distraction. And despite her angst and those of her Facebook friends over Amos’s plight, why didn’t they post bail? Talk is cheap, walk the talk. But then money talks, BS walks.

Amos: Parents finally got it?/ Walk the talk, Amos’s groupies

In Uncategorized on 21/04/2015 at 3:49 am

A lot has been BSed about Amos Yee (Below* is something I came across on Facebook by someone who believes that convicted drug mules should not only not be hanged, and not caned, but be put up in five-star hotel suites and given food from Tung Loke daily.).

Me? I think it’s wrong that he is charged under the Protection from Harassment Act. He should not be charged under any law for his bad, loitish but non-violent behaviour. But sadly in today’s environment, using the law is the only way society can show its outrage at breaches of accepted norms of behaviour.

In the bad old days when Harry’s Law was the law, Amos’s dad would cane him six times and then say, “I’ve punished my son for his bad behaviour. Sorry leh for offence caused.”

We’d all move on. Boy got what he deserved, no damage done to his long term prospects.

Today Maruah, AWARE, Mad Dog Chee, Cherian George**  and all the other good-heatred but misguided ang moh tua kee kay pohs  would be yelling for the father to be jailed.

And if he didn’t cane his son, the police would pay him a visit and suggest that he did so. If he demurred, they’d offer to do it for him. If he further demurred, they’d take father and son in for questioning. If a spell in custody, didn’t soften up dad’s reluctance to allow his son to be caned, then there would be an accident involving the boy.

He’d get a black eye or two or a broken arm: accident leh, slipped on a bar of soap.

There would be be nods and winks, and we’d move on.

Well it seems that Amos Yee’s parents have hit on a variation of caning Amos or allowing him to be caned: they refused to cough up bail, allowing him to remain behind bars over the weekend and on Monday. No one has yet come forward to bail him out.

A bail review will be held later today at 4 pm while the next pre-trial conference has been scheduled for 13th May at 4 pm.

Err where are his friends like Roy, TOC? Not posting bail for him? Talk is cheap. Walk the talk, post bail. AGC was so kind as to ask the court to allow anyone to post bail for Amos, not just his parents. Yet no-one has yet come forward to bail him out. Certainly not the ang moh tua kee human rights activists like Kirsten Han (wrote a piece on him in Yahoo). They leaving him to rot in jail, while they proclaim his right (duty?) to slime one Harry Lee Kuan Yew, and hurt the feelings of 20-odd S’poreans? Seems, he’s a flag, not a human being to these ang moh tua kees.

I hope that if he comes out of remand, a more sober person, apologises for his behaviour and promises to behave himself in future, the authorities should drop the charges.

My serious point, is that society has to come up with modern variants of parents using or authorising corporal punishment. Using the majesty of the law for bad, loutish but non-violent behaviour by minors, demeans the law. But excusing Amos Yee’s behaviour as merely “boundary-crossing” (see below*) is equally unacceptable. But then what would expect of a drug mule groupie who thinks that convicted drug mules deserve the good life: air-cobn cells, no caning, Crystal Jade food.

Society’s anger at its rules being broken should be allowed to manifest itself without affecting the boy’s future too much. The issue is how without invoking the law and without vigilantism.

Maybe “six of the best” administered or sanctioned by the parents should be politically correct once more? Btw, LKY was a fan of “six of the best”. A friend who had the dubious honour of sitting beside LKY at two lunches (overseas) said that at one of them LKY was talking of lining up journalists against the wall and giving them “six of the best”.

But let’s end with three cheers for the parents: they are punishing Amos Yee in the right way.

**Cherian George, the Director of Asia Journalism Fellowship, cautioned people against treating Amos as an adult in a widely shared Facebook post. He pointed out that under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, Amos is still a child, and regardless of how much he seeks publicity, he is at a stage of life where he needs to be protected—even from himself. Quoting Article 40 of the Convention, Cherian explains:

“Every child alleged as, accused of, or recognized as having infringed the penal law” must be “treated in a manner consistent with the promotion of the child’s sense of dignity and worth” – which means, among other things, that states must guarantee that the child has “his or her privacy fully respected at all stages of the proceedings”.

***Well they didn’t bring him up the right way, did they? Though by refusing to bail him, they are atoning for that oversight.
