[Mothership] Amos Yee has been on suicide watch for the past 2 weeks in American jail

[Mothership] Amos Yee has been on suicide watch for the past 2 weeks in American jail

If you haven’t been following the Amos Yee case, here’s a quick breakdown of the events so far. – Amos Yee seeks asylum in America – Amos Yee gets granted asylum based on grounds of political persecution. – The prosecutor appealed the case. Now, the last part is the most tangential to this story. See, the prosecution is going to take quite some time. Six months in fact, which in addition to the five months he has already spent there, means nearly a full year of imprisonment before he even gets another hearing. According to a Facebook post from his official page, Yee has been on suicide watch for two weeks in the hole, which is apparently an American term for solitary confinement.
