Two teenagers sentenced to reformative training for rioting in Singapore Boys' Home

SINGAPORE: Two teenagers who took part in a riot at the Singapore Boys' Home in retaliation to 'lockdown' punishment were each sentenced to a ...

The two teens were inmates at Singapore Boys' Home in September last year and decided to plan a riot after they were placed on"lockdown" punishment for the entire day and were not allowed to leave their dormitories.

After some changes to the plan, the boys agreed to carry out only the"armour bang" plan. It involved a fake fight, a riot, theft of a staff member's pass for all of them to escape, and the use of floorball sticks as weapons.

The boys put their plan into motion on Sep 28, 2018. Two of them started a fake fight in the courtyard. When a youth guidance officer rushed forward to separate them, one of the boys punched him in the face.

An auxiliary police officer at the scene tried to help as well, drawing his baton and shouting at the boys to drop their weapons.

They ran along the corridor, with one of them shouting"riot, riot", planning to recruit as many as possible to increase the scale of chaos and damage, said the prosecution.

The total damage at the Singapore Boys' Home amounted to about S$10,642, the court heard.

The closed-circuit television camera in that area was smashed and the group used colour pencils to draw on the walls before breaking into song and shouting loudly while waiting to be arrested.

He also suffered traumatic iridodialysis, where blunt force ruptures the iris in the eye. This condition is likely to be permanent.

District Judge Eddy Tham said it was"clearly shocking" that they had taken part in causing havoc, pointing out their"audacity" and"total lack of regard or respect for the law or authority".
