Sorry, we broke our promise not to talk about Amos Yee’s case anymore. We got nothing against him. In fact, we find him to be somewhat a genius. We are reporting for the plain reason that this latest call by Amos Yee’s lawyers is what we though an attempt to challenge the judicial system. As such we find it important to put it in our archive.
This morning, ST carries a post with the title “Lawyers want judge who’s not Christian for Amos Yee appeal”. It instantly drew a load of comments. Here are some notable comments.
What Singaporeans Say?
Chai Kath Lawyers … where are you coming from? Next you want a foreign judge who never knew who late LKY was and never had a father or father who passed away with no insults at his mourning?
How about contempt of court for the lawywers who are now deem to accuse the judge based on religion? · 102 · Likes
Jairaj Kumar Firstly, this issue has been dragging far too long. He is nothing more than a recalcitrant brat who hasn’t shown any desire whatsoever to repent and rectify his mistakes. A brat who’s misguided idea of ‘free speech’ which is nothing more than heaping insults upon innocents and slandering them. The law dealt with him justly and we should all respect that and leave this matter. And those lawyers standing up for him are going against the very core values of our nation. Dragging race or religion into everything is NOT how we operate! Be it Chinese, Indian, Muslim or Christian, the judge has been appointed solely on his merit. The lawyers making such a request should be taken to task and reprimanded. We’ve never had this issue before in our country and we should nip it in the bud before it sets an ugly precedence.· 67 · Likes
Sebastian Kang Amos Yee and his lawyers are playing on a very very fine line … requesting for a non Christian judge to hear appeal … are they indirectly implying about our judiciary understanding of the law (which may be distorted by the judges religious beliefs) … this is purely bigotry and nonsense … we should not allow such requests as it will be a precedent to start other bigotry requests by other appellant(s)· 11 · Likes
