Last week saw a huge uproar erupt online over a controversial decision to sentence a guilty molester to probation in lieu of jail time — thanks to his commendable GPA score.
For his “minor intrusions” of repeatedly outraging the modesty of a female commuter on a train and at Serangoon MRT station, District Judge Jasvender Kaur decided that National University of Singapore undergrad Terence Siow Kai Yuan deserved 21 months of supervised probation.
She rejected the prosecution’s call for the 23-year-old to be jailed for six weeks, stating that his academic results showed he has "potential to excel in life".
The sentence (even Minister of Law K. Shanmugam was taken aback) clearly didn’t sit well with Singaporeans, judging from the glut of memes and parodic posts that emerged on social media over the weekend.
Take a gander at the whole lot of them below.
