They did know the risk they were taking, absolutely. So did the AFP who turned them in. These kids were 21- an age when their adult brains and decision making capacities are not yet fully formed.
Would you show such disdain for someone who drives into a tree and dies because they text while driving? They knew the risks and consequences too, right? What about someone who eats their chicken despite it being a little pink because they are so hungry, and dies of food poisoning?
I don't believe anyone ever has the right to say another human deserves to die.
Mercy is about respect for all human life, humility and forgiveness. The OP has clearly stated the purpose of this thread.
(sorry for debating, OP - the post really upset me.)

I stand for mercy...

I have never believed a states has the right to kill its citizens or visitors to its boarders. It will never sit right with me regardless the crime.
My only issue with the movement is that it appears we only stand for mercy when it's Australians involved. I know it hits closer to home, but the uproar and outrage is not so vocal when the United States are killing people.
So I stand for mercy for everyone.

It's an issue people feel very strongly about, this thread was always going to turn into a debate.

This thread was not created for that purpose.
It was created so the people who feel strongly about mercy, for Andrew and Myursn, have a place to express how they feel, without others coming in to tell them why they shouldn't feel that way.

It's really sad that 1 - they have been in prison, (not just a plain old prison either) a vile dirty grimy overseas prison for 10 years and been rehabilitated, turned a corner and helped others 2 - Are most likely different people with different perspective on life.
Sick, vile and such a poor take on life to end ones life after they have proven themselves for change. Shmeful and completely backwards, halfwit attitude. Such a shame, my heart aches for them and their families. Just vile...
