Capital punishment is barbaric? How about all the people that have to live with the trauma of all the dumb pricks that choose to destroy lives. You look at these idiots as victims, there not. How many kids went hungry because there mom and dad was hooked to their crap, how many people were mugged so the addicts could get their fix, how many women were forced into prostitution to feed there addiction, how many children kidnapped and pushed into the slave trade. Screw these pricks, they got what they deserved and only wish the USA would put in an express lane to eliminate more of these pricks. They are not a part of society. They are the slime that destroys it.
falling for a convicted drug dealers made up story.
This was not the first time these 2 went to Indonesia to smuggle drugs, so they knew exactly what they were doing, and what the penalty was. Chan also had mules going to Hong Kopnd to smuggle drugs back, and threaten them from prison after they were caught.
Well, Chan wrote to and threatened one of the mules he had sent to Hong Kong who had been caught, Chan had a mobile phone so there was nothing stopping them continuing their drug smuggling operation even in jail....
edit on 29-4-2015 by hellobruce because: Chan had the phone

If you go to another country respect there laws simple.
And what a load. They let 36 convicted terrorists out on clemency. The Bali bombing culprits.
They were only responsible for blowing up 92 bloody Australians.
Hey , they don't like Australians. We can't or even we shouldn't change other countries beliefs toward our fellow man. Do the Americans hate Pres Bush because he sent young men to Iraq on the lie of they had weapons of mass destruction and America must protect the area from them using them. Who in their right mind would not be pissed at Pres Bush for lying and lost a son or daughter. Open your mind and you'll see and think differently if once you are being attacked by an outsider, whether by smuggling of drugs or whatever the case may be.
You smuggle chemical drugs into a company, you can kiss your a... goodbye as far as I'm concerned.
Respect *their laws?
Sure thing pal...
It's time for the Bali executions to blow over.
The sooner everyone goes back to their every day lives, the sooner the media will stop the bull# hype about it.
Yes, the death penalty is #. Yes, dying by shooting would be excruciating. Yes, these men may have found God and turned over a new leaf in prison.
But make no mistake; these men were no heroes. So let's stop treating them like they were. In fact, Andrew Chan forced teenagers (15 and 17) to swallow condoms full of heroin by threatening harm to their families. Let's not even get started about the lives that could have been seriously effected had they have made it in to Australia with all that Heroin.
Were you aware that the death toll from the Nepalese earthquakes is now up around 3200? How about the 700 migrants who died when a ship sank in the Mediterranean?
There's still concerns that Australian Red Cross Workers are likely to have died providing aid to the Nepalese when the earthquake happened. Going to hold a candlelight vigil for them?
People don't spend hours of their day debating any of that though, so why would the media bother with wider coverage of it when they can't benefit from it?
Seriously, these men knew what they were doing. They #ed up big time, but they were literally planning to profit from destroying countless lives. And while I don't agree with the death penalty, I do abide that these men made a conscious decision and even took others down with them when they fell, knowing full well the possible consequence of playing roulette in a third world country.
Let their families grieve. Go back to your normal lives. Stop helping the media make money off of your opinions and let this whole thing go.
Facebook campaigning didn't do # to help them and it'll do even less for them now.

I found this today on Facebook and, I have to say, it sums up my position perfectly.

So, I take it then, you are conceding that your views on this topic might not be correct?

Not even slightly, all I admitted was that you were right that other people may have differing opinions, something which should be self-evident given that we are on a debate forum.
Hence the "Thank you Captain Obvious".
Keep trying though mate, it's rather amusing to watch you resort to such low tactics as twisting words and putting words into others mouths in order to try and win the argument.
