    Roger Emerson was at the cusp of learning what most Americans never really understood: the extent of the penal system in Singapore. Roger had conducted business in Singapore for several years, but never fully appreciated the intricacies of the culturally mixed court system, nor did he understand the sense of justice that was almost inbred in the life long residents of Singapore. As the celebrated Michael Fay incident suggests, Singapore was formerly a British crown colony and has been an independent member of the Commonwealth of Nations only since 1965. The use of the judicial cane on bad boy Michael Fay clearly indicates the years of British influence on that nation found at the tip of the Malay Peninsula. And, because of its strategic position, Singapore has long been fought over and occupied by other nations. Even the long and cruel occupation of Singapore by the Japanese during the World War II era had a profound effect on the justice system. The Japanese were ruthless and uncompromising masters, a trait that has been carried over into many aspects of modern day Singapore, its society, and its judicial system. Roger Emerson was just beginning to understand all of this. Roger is a business broker, specializing in micro electronics, especially computer chips. He works at the very edge of legitimacy, brokering transactions for pirated or “knock-off” computer chips. And, because of operating in this fringe or shadow world of imitations, Roger earns many hundreds of ...

Also present in the room is Sandra Synochet, a representative of the US State Department. Roger, the archetypical “ugly American” had screamed loud and long about the injustice and mistake of his arrest. It had cause quite a scene and the story was picked up internationally. Unfortunately, for him, he was quite guilty of trading in pirated chips and was facing a 5 to 10 year jail sentence. Because of his screaming that, “you can’t do this to me, I’m an American!” he had placed the Singapore court in a very awkward position. It might have been possible to quietly suspend sentence and deport Mr. Emerson, but the local population had become quite aroused over the incident. After hundreds of years of subservience to other countries, Emerson’s squealing appeal for preferential treatment was the worst thing that could happen. The public believed firmly that justice must be served, and it would be or riots would break out in the streets. That situation caused the prosecutor and the court to suggest an alternative to many years in jail. “Think carefully, Mr. Emerson, about what you are about to decide,” warned the State Department’s Miss ...
