    I don't really have the words to say what I want to say.

    I feel so much for them and especially their family.

    I'm so baffled at how this Indonesian president's brain works....he apparently granted clemency to a man who murdered a man and the man's school age child but he doesn't grant clemency to two drug mules who have made an effort to change their lives?
    How does that make sense?

    My assumption is that the indonesian murderer was not enough of a "mass murderer"...as he only killed two people. But yet you can be connected to terrorist bombings and still be freed? Is the fact that one targets foreigners and drugs can potentially kill those in indonesia the difference?

    Gosh I pray that this president opens his eyes and his heart to grant all drug offenders clemency.

    There seems to be no consistency with regards to the death penalty in Indonesia, I think that's why it all feels so icky to me.

    .
    Long bow.

    According to Wikipedia for the 2002 bombings the main dude that got freed after not much time was the alleged spiritual leader of the terrorist group. Others faced the firing squad. Sounds like with the spiritual leader it was more an evidence based thing rather than a plot to give Indonesians favorable treatment.

    It's hard to say whether his release was justified when the article doesn't go into any real detail about the role he played or the evidence that authorities actually had against him. (Article seems to be a bit of biased reporting).
