I don't believe in the death penalty.
In saying that, those that smuggle drugs into and through Indonesia know the risks. If they still decide to go ahead with it anyway, what happens next is really on them. I know that sounds horrible, but honestly, so many people die every day because of drugs, including legal ones...smugglers and dealers are responsible for every person that dies because of what they sell/distribute. I don't agree with them being killed and I don't agree with the way things have been handled, but that's their law and no one can do anything about that.
You cannot expect the police to turn a blind eye and not do their jobs for the sake of leniency to one case? What happens when it gets out they let them home for the convenience of the criminal, Aus police are deemed internationally weak and every other criminal who breaks the law overseas expects the same treatment? Then everyone would be on forums whining about how unsafe we are because our AFP are incompetent.
Its a no win situation for the police.
Were they smuggling drugs to Indonesia, no. Were they smuggling drugs to Australia? Yes they were, I see know reason why they couldn't be charged on our end. No one is saying that they shouldn't be punished, but the death penalty is a breach of human rights. they were smuggling drugs here so they should have been dealt with here.
Again, why is it the AFPs job to babysit criminals? They broke the law.
