It's all over the news. Some are against it and some are for it. The Bali Nine pair Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran are next in line to be executed by firing squad for their role as ring leaders of a heroin smuggling group.
While I feel for the families of both these men, I feel more for the families that have been destroyed by drugs. Yes drug addicts are to be blamed. But the morons that smuggle drugs into countries on behalf of drug kingpins? Drug smugglers are scumbags out for quick money. People filled with greed that have no empathy for the lives they are destroying.
I'm very sure Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran knew of the consequences before they made their faithful trip to Bali. They were well aware of Indonesia's strict drug laws and the death penalty. But yet, they went ahead with their plans.
If you do the crime, you pay the time. Unfortunately it's a crime they would have to pay with their lives. May this be a lesson for everyone. Even here in Singapore, we have strict drug laws which carry the death penalty. The death penalty is there for a reason and I hope it stays.
Yes we all make mistakes in our life. You would agree that there are consequences. Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran are now facing theirs. It's as simple as that.
