S’poreans react to police investigating Amos Yee again for allegedly making religiously offensive remarks

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

Amos Yee, the 17-year-old teen who was previously arrested for making religiously insensitive remarks online, has confirmed via his Facebook page that he was picked up by the police for investigation again.

It is believed his latest brush with the authorities stems from one of his latest blog posts on Nov. 27, where Yee made reference to a Singaporean man with a blue tick beside his name and Islam.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Amos Yee’s plan to avoid National Service is really coming together.”
Hock Kian Peng, 44-year-old Singapore Armed Forces regular

 

sian-half-uncle “Makes you wonder why the Singaporean man with a blue tick beside his name hasn’t been arrested yet.”
Jing Cha Ju, 62-year-old security guard

 

happy-bird-girl “This is the reality of joining the police force as a full-timer. Interrogating teenagers about what they blog about.”
Zuo Gong, 17-year-old part-time blogger

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 











Police drops case, local filmmaker loses street cred

Police drops case, local filmmaker loses street cred

Martyn See, Singapore’s bravest documentary-maker, gets roped in to fight crime instead.

Local filmmaker, Martyn See, has received a letter from The Police.

It states in no uncertain terms that the Men In Blue are ceasing all investigations as to whether he broke the law last September by organising an event on behalf of Singaporeans For Democracy (SFD), a now-defunct but previously gazetted political association that was into democracy, freedom and stuff.

Martyn, who is known for crossing paths with authorities resulting in people being generally more familiar with his reputation than the content of his films, was subsequently questioned by The Police last October.

However, nothing came out of the probe.

This latest move by the The Police is an encouraging sign that authorities are dropping cases such as Martyn’s in favour of catching real crooks who are deemed to have committed greater crimes instead.

Such as Sticker Lady, a.k.a. Samantha Lo.

And by dropping investigations, The Police are also hoping to soften Martyn’s image considerably.

Instead of massaging his image into a hardened activist, they are trying to make him out to be more Justin Bieber and Green Latern, with his cherubic looks.

To uphold Martyn’s street cred, The Police stated in the letter to him that together, they “can fight crime and keep Singapore safe and secured”.

This means Martyn must put down his camera and don a cape and wear his underwear outside?
