AMOS YEE: IN S’PORE YOU ARE GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT

So I was sharing the story of my charge with my fellow prison mates during the yard, expressing my perplexity that there would even be these things like remand or bail conditions, before you were found guilty by the judge.

So then my prison mate said to me:

‘In America, you’re innocent until proven guilty. But in Singapore, you’re guilty until proven innocent.’

Damn, I do love me a good little philosophy session in prison.
