Amos Yee struck on way to court ... Staged!
In the latest twist to the Amos Yee saga, it now appears that Amos was "assaulted" on his way to his pre-trial conference on 30 April 2015. Unconfirmed sources tell us that the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) had hired a "hit-man" to slap Amos to malign the Government and to win sympathy votes for Amos.
In a video spreading on social media, Amos Yee was seen walking to court alone when an unknown man, in a red t-shirt walked up to him and slapped him. For dramatic effect, Amos Yee is seen clutching his face for the camera.
From the video, it is clear that the slapping incident was staged. Firstly, it happened in an area where reporters were congregating to ensure that it was captured. If it was a real assault, it would realistically have happened in a more secluded area away from the cameras. Secondly, the video was perfectly positioned to capture the entire scene. The way it zoomed in and followed the path of the perpetrator was uncanny and could only have been achieved with pre-planning. Thirdly, the speed at which the alternate media uploaded the video and opposition members condemning it was unreal. Without forewarning, this would not have been possible.
In short, Singaporeans need to know the lengths at which opposition activists will act to mislead the public and malign the government.
Breaking News! Amos Yee has been remanded as his bailor, Vincent Law, has discharged himself. He told Straits Times that he was forced to do this as Amos is determined to challenge the court and government ala Roy Ngerng style.
