Amos Yee is a teenage Singaporean blogger, and prisoner of conscience. He attained fame shortly after the death of Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's first Prime Minister and founding father, as a result of a profanity laced YouTube diatribe he posted regarding LKY's legacy, political freedom and corruption in Singapore, and Jesus. Just your typical teen angst under a totalitarian state. He was subsequently arrested for hurting the religious feelings of Christians, and uploading an image depicting LKY and Margaret Thatcher engaged in a sexual act.

This is hardly the first time the Sinagporean government has used the law to punish critics of the state. Mr. Yee's situation has drawn international media attention, and his blog posts and sometimes bizarre antics have kept him in the spotlight. After his release on bail, he accused his family counselor and bailor Vincent Law of molesting him. A few days later he recanted his accusation with an apology, and then recanted his recantation, accusing Law of emotional abuse.
