It's the inconsistencies of sentencing that is the most frustrating. The link in my OP has a story about it.
Tanya Plibersek nailed it when she said that punishment should not made on how we feel "but on the basis of universal, consistently applied rules"
Indonesia is failing miserably in this department.
I know they did the wrong thing, pretty much made the worst decisions that they could have made and I do believe that they should be punished for this but the death penalty? It doesn't work as a deterrent, it's never ok and I will never support it no matter what the circumstance.
This is just an inhumane, waste of two lives.
I stand for mercy.
Yes, the double standards by Indonesia make this case a thousands times worse. It is just so Inhumane.
"Hangky Gunawan, an Indonesian ice manufacturer who was convicted in 2007 and was handed the death penalty before his appeal - which followed directly after the Bali Nine duos' - won him both a reduced sentence and most importantly, his life"
From the Daily Mail, the article is questioning why local drug traffickers have had their appeals accepted and sentences change, when they won't even consider it for these two.
It makes me feel that there is something more to this, like it is politically motivated, almost like Indonesia showing us that they won't back down or something, even if our leaders beg and plead. Which makes me even more upset - imagine using people as pawns like that.
