S’poreans risk letting Lee Kuan Yew down after only 15 police reports made against Amos Yee

Posted on 30 March 2015

More police reports needed to show that Singaporeans do not take lightly anyone sullying LKY’s good name.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who paid their final respects to the late Lee Kuan Yew this past week during the seven-day period of mourning, are at risk of letting all that respect that was paid go to waste.

This after only 15 separate police reports were filed against Amos Yee, a 16-year-old who made a YouTube video sullying the good name of Lee Kuan Yew barely a week since his departure.

Poh Mah Tah, a Singaporean who is loyal to Lee Kuan Yew, said: “Singaporeans are at risk of letting Lee Kuan Yew down because so far, there has only been 15 police reports made against Amos Yee. This is unacceptable as the numbers are far too low.”

“It would be advisable to make approximately 1,000 police reports to show that Singaporeans do not allow take lightly what Amos Yee said.”

“And then another 2,000 police reports are needed to be made the next day to show that Singaporeans mean business. This will be followed by 3,000 police reports on the third day and 4,000 on the fourth day and so on.”

Other Singaporeans said reporting the matter to the authorities embodies a live-and-let-live attitude given the circumstances.

Another Singaporean, Hen Ren Zhen, said: “Singaporeans must live and let live. We must show Amos Yee that we are the bigger person by not hunting him down personally and threatening him by ourselves.”

“Instead, we should do the adult thing by not turning a deaf ear to his rants and ignoring what he has to say, but instead do the right thing and feel offended and then take it upon ourselves to go to the police and washing this issue clean off our hands.”

“This is because letting the authorities deal with something they are wholly ill-equipped to deal with — because no crime has even been committed via the posting of a video — would be the best definition of honouring Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy.”


Here is another adult thing to do to honour Lee Kuan Yew’s legacy:

Revoke S’porean citizenship of those who did not pay respects to Lee Kuan Yew
