I'm sick to death about hearing about this poor hard done by DRUG TRAFICKER!!!!
No and I agree. I am not really that worried about the guys welfare but his family is a different story. how do you think they will feel when they eventually get this in an sms or an email......how would you feel if it was your family.He should have thought about that before he went waltzing through Singapore with a bundle of coke tied to him then hey?
It's not as if the death penalty in these countries isn't advertised in every bloody toilet cubicle at Sydney International!
As wrong as it is that he's getting death. When are these fools gunna learn not to fk around with drugs. Especially in other countries.
Apparently drugs are far less accessible over there.............sounds like a good thing hey Dan?
btw what do you want us to do about the SMS getting to the family.....please!
Dan, I see the end result of what those drugs do. If nguyen is sacrificed on the alter of public example and it makes the drug trade doubly hard - yeah, let him swing as far as I'm concerned.
But then you may argue that I'm more comfortable with the notion of one man dying to save many than most of the Australian population.
I think it absurd when I hear his lawyers calling him an \"inspiration\". He's a drug trafficker and therefore a reprehensible, horrible scourge as far as I'm concerned.
Equally, if a Singaporean politician was busted in the trade (and that's not an unlikely situation if you know what I mean) I would expect that he gets the same treatment.
I'm surrounded by people at work who have lived there for years (asians).
From all reports it works very well for Singapore. Very low crime and drug problems. Surrounding countries like Malaysia have big drug problems because they don't have these harsh penalties. Therefore drug addicts go there for the hits.
Byso and Mata, if one of your kids for some reason got caught with drugs in Singapore and was facing the death penalty, would you still be saying they deserved it or sending emails around mocking their death?
I'll be very surprised if either of you say yes
