I do not agree with capital punishment, but I also believe a country should have the right to make it’s own laws and execute them as it sees fit. Ok, maybe that’s a bad choice of word …
There is a lot of public action and protest regarding the Singapore governments intention to hang an Australian man convicted of trafficking drugs. Honestly, people know the risks of taking drugs into countries like that and if they are caught then they only have themselves to blame.
I am getting tired of the complaints by protest groups and human rights groups claiming that the government is not doing enough to convince Singapore that they should offer clemency to this person. Van Tuong Nguyen made his choice when he attempted to smuggle heroin through Changi airport.
Personally, I feel most sorry for his family.
