    AFP have a lot to answer for. Why didnt they nab them on arrival to Australia instead of a country that imposes the death penalty. Scott rushs dad must feel terrible but I understand where he was coming from..

    That's what kills me most. Poor Scott Rush's dad. The torment he must go through every day. And I've not once seen any acknowledgement from the AFP that they ****ed up royally here.

    There was something a couple of weeks ago about them dodging the questions... Again... I think there is definitely something more at play with the AFP than meets the eye. Scott Rush father must have had such a rough 10 years with this. So awful

    I know I should care but I really don't. I know it's complete double standards but I would definitely care if it was my DD and would be making all the 'but she rehabilitated' arguements. I have tried to read about it and I'm usually way too empathetic for my own good but I just can't care about these 2. I wish I felt differently but I don't.

    Sorry I just don't think they deserve anything less than the sentence given to them. Not only were they smuggling drugs they had provided money, airline tickets and accommodation to drug mules. They knew damn well what they were doing and they would have known the risk of being caught and the penalty in Indonesia. They were in this much deeper than just the smuggling, probably not the first time they had done it either. They need to accept their fate as does everyone else.

    This mentality makes me sick.

    Sent from my GT-I9507 using The Bub Hub mobile app
    I see at least two big issues with this idea though
    One is that are we happy with that here? If someone visits australia from a country where rape is legal, and then rapes some women while he is here. Are we happy to send him home and allow his country to let him go as rape is legal in his country? I personally am not. I would want to see punishment that we impose here.

    Two) if australian drug traffickers were to be punishable only by australian laws ( which compared to some countries are somewhat lenient) then Australians trafficking into and out of countries with very harsh penalties would become a very lucrative thing. Do we really that?


    On the death penalty my personal opinion is that for drug related offences it is too harsh. My brain fogs into grey area when it comes to crimes against children etc.
    but even though I think this penalty is very harsh and perhaps not fairly delivered now after ten yrs, I do think it's fair that we have to abide by other countries laws.

    This is so narrow-minded. I bet if it was one of your children you'd fight for their cause. And don't say well my kids would never do that because I'm sure their Mums thought the same too.

    I'm just sad for their families and friends and the terror they must be going through. They must regret their stupid decision.
    I also would like to see an inquest into the AFP. As Australians we should have faith that we can call upon the law enforcement to help us and Scott Rush's dad was asking for help, instead he was thrown under the bus.
    I do believe in the death penalty for anybody who hurts children and violates women. Those monsters don't seem to rehabilitate in my opinion.
