District Judge Jasvender Kaur had asked herself two questions when deciding if the image posted by Amos Yee was guilty of being obscene.
The two questions were:
“Would any right-thinking parents approve of their teenage (children)… (viewing) such an image?”
The other was whether any teacher would approve of a student doing the same in the school library.
According to the Judge, the answer would be an “emphatic no” to both and would have met with the parties’ strongest disapproval and condemnation. Because of these two questions, the Judge rules that the image posted by Amos was deemed obscene.
The image posted by Yee was a superimposition of the faces of Lee Kuan Yew and former British premier Margaret Thatcher onto an outline of two people engaging in a sex act.
The Judge said: “It is by a 16-year-old teenager who plainly has a lot of growing up to do”.
