Execution of Bali Bombers

I reckon today is THE day the Bali bombers are executed. These three individuals deserve a more cruel form of death. To shoot them is too easy. An instant death in exchange for the 202 lives that were lost? Not forgetting the hundreds of people that were injured. It just doesn't make sense to this tattooed blogger.

I was at home watching television when a news alert scroll popped up. All it said then was a bomb had gone off in Bali. I switched to CNN and my jaw dropped. It was truly a horrifying sight. The first thing I thought to myself, "thank god I wasn't there'.

My then ex-girlfriend had asked if I wanted to go to Bali for a few days. There are a few places I wouldn't go with a girlfriend. Bali was one of those places. I mean, if I were to go to Bali, it'll be to party till the sun rises. There's no way in hell I'm gonna bring a girlfriend to an island that's filled to the brim with hot chicks! That just wouldn't be proper.

Anyhow, like most of you know, I was there in 2005. Long story short, we were in Kuta, Bali when the 2005 bombing happened. I was scared shitless! Firstly, it was only 3 years ago that I thanked god. Secondly, we were supposed to have been eating at the joint that was bombed. I tell you man, it was at that very instant that I missed Singapore. The fear, uncertainty and anger I went through is something that can never be explained in words.

It's about time these three scumbags face the firing squad. Their death will never ease the suffering they have cost. Their death will never bring back the victims of Bali 2oo2. But they do not deserve to breathe the same air as you and I do.
