Well people, we've read all about it, seen all about it and heard all about it. What do you think about it?
Personally, I'm against the execution, but far from opposed to 25 years in jail or longer.
While I understand the reason for the media coverage, I can't help but think it's glamorising (not sure if that's the exact word I'm looking for) Van Nguyen, and while I feel very very sorry for his family, fact remains he was busted with enough heroin on him for 26,000 hits. Surely he must have understood what would happen if he got caught. If not, he's an even bigger idiot. True, Schapple Corby, Michelle Leslie and the Bali 9 hadn't happened as warnings for him when he was nicked 3 years ago, but Barlow & Chambers were strung up in Thailand for exactly the same thing 9 YEARS BEFORE!
As I say, I feel sorry for the family, but think it's getting way too much press, and who ever the idiot was who wanted to have a minutes silence for him should have a frontal labotomy (if they haven't already). I'm afraid for the same reason that I think the church ringing bells 25 times once for each year of his life, is wrong people! In at least the last 3 years he was a convicted drug smuggler, since when do we go about celebrating the life of a drug smuggler?
So, what say you people?
