Seeking Asylum elsewhere

So apparently his 15 minutes of fame has not run out.

Or the media continues to give Attention-Seeking, Banana Boy more "15 minutes of fame".

His latest stunt is to seek asylum in the US.

I grew up understanding "Asylum" to mean "mental institution" (See "Arkham Asylum"). So my first thought was, "this is appropriate". :-)

And from this independent report, he is still attention-seeking:
(love the new photo of Amos. He gets a preview of his NS haircut.)

Singaporeans (some) wanted to thank Sergeant Henson of McHenry County Jail for giving him the attention he so desperately craves. Signing up for "Muslim Studies" just so he could disagree and call their God a "sky wizard" and their religion, "complete fucking garbage" is at the very least rude, uncalled for, and of questionable judgement. But then no one can ever accuse ASBB of having sound judgement, or being polite.

Meanwhile on his FB page (since deleted) he pointed out (in his usual profanity-laced manner, as noted in the above), that he had been detained in the US for seeking asylum, longer than he had been imprisoned in SG for his offences. And he found that outrageous.

Welcome to the real world. Welcome to the dawning realisation (if you have any ability to reflect) that how you are treated at "home" may be very different from how you may be treated as a "guest" (who wants to overstay your welcome).

What does it mean to seek asylum in the US? Is it better there?

Well according to that link:

You are 3.8 times more likely to be unemployed. Well, ASBB is unemployed. He will fit right in!
One is 12.7 times more likely to be murdered! Oh dear.
Spend 3.7 times more on healthcare. Maybe more now with the GOP trying to repeal Obamacare, a.k.a. the "Affordable Care Act". Also with his propensity to insult people, he won't just get slapped by a random stranger (like he was in SG). There're guns in the US! (See 12.7X more likely to be murdered, above.)
One is 3.2 times more likely to be in prison. Well, he's in one now.
Die 4.82 years younger. Well, he's nowhere near that yet. But with risk of being murdered and the cost of healthcare, even a normally non-fatal assault could lead to an early death.
Use 76.16% less oil. Maybe he can afford a Tesla car and drive away from his assailants.
Be 6 times more likely to have HIV/AIDS. Probably from all that jail time.
Use 56.94% more electricity. Erm... Electric Chair?
Make 15.38% less money. But he's not making money now. And if he avoids NS, he can start making money sooner.
Experience 2.81% less of a class divide.
Have 65.68% more babies. This is bad. He is going to the US to reproduce himself!
