Jailing Amos Yee’s slapper shows it’s okay to hit a child in public only if it’s your own kid

No one would have called the police if it was his own parent who did it.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who agree that you spoil the child when you spare the rod, said they understand the court’s ruling for sentencing the man who slapped Amos Yee in public to three weeks jail time.

One Singaporean, Sai Yee Bah, said: “This is a clear message from the courts that it is not okay to slap a child in public across the face, especially if it is not your own child.”

“But it would have been okay to slap a child across the face like how the man slapped Amos Yee if it is your own child. When that happens, it is called ‘discipline’ and it will be a parent’s god-given responsibility.”

“Otherwise, it is abuse and you will be liable for jail time.”

Other Singaporeans said the 49-year-old man, Neo Gim Huah, who admitted to voluntarily causing hurt to the teenager, has greatly helped clarify the law in Singapore with his premeditated actions.

Da Xiao Ren, a local, said: “No one would have been outraged or called the police if the slapper was Amos Yee’s parent.”

“Therefore, this incident clearly highlights some of the problematic areas with the law in Singapore when it comes to disciplining children by parents, in particular, as the punishment dished out can be brutal but still not considered abuse as it is justified as being familial.”

If they saw a woman get molested, will they also not act?

Singaporeans from all walks of life who enjoy feeling self-righteous have called on the authorities to arrest the reporters on the scene outside the State Court where teenager Amos Yee was slapped by a man in a red shirt.

This after the incident was caught on camera by various members of the media and it showed none of the reporters on the scene who witnessed what happened assist Yee by giving chase after his assailant.

One Singaporean, Sai Ji Pah, said: “If the reporters saw a woman get molested, will they also not chase after the perpetrator of the act?”

“There seems to be a clear double standard applied here. The reporters’ inaction in the face of assault is tantamount to abetting a crime.”

“Their behaviour is unlike the actions of foreign workers in Singapore who would step in to help at any given moment.”

“This is also an example of what our world class education system has failed to inculcate: Moral responsibility.”

“The Bystander Effect is strong with this one.”

Anyone who loses $20,000 overnight is entitled to feel this way.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who enjoy schadenfreude said they will not be surprised if the guy in red shirt who slapped Amos Yee outside the State Courts turned out to be his bailor.

This after the teenager broke the terms of his $20,000 bond by posting new content online even though he was not supposed to as his case is before the courts.

One Singaporean, Lang Fei Qian, said: “I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if the man in red might have been the one posting bail. The slap was for wasting $20,000 of cold hard cash.”

However, not all Singaporeans felt this way.

Another Singaporean, Yee Ba Zhang, said slapping Amos Yee is to reinforce the message that dissent of any sort will not be tolerated in Singapore: “Being hostile to dissent was a condition Singaporeans growing up in the 70s and 80s would have been familiar with but have forgotten with the advent of the Internet and recently the explosion of social media.”

“This will help get the message across.”
