    Can you guess her crime. She looks like she could be someone's grandmother

    ALI, Indonesia - An Indonesian court has sentenced a British woman to death for smuggling cocaine worth $2.5 million into the resort island of Bali.
    Lindsay June Sandiford, 56, was found guilty Tuesday by the Denpasar District Court of violating the country's extremely strict drug laws.
    In its verdict, a judge panel headed by Amser Simanjuntak concluded that Sandiford has damaged the image of Bali as a tourism destination and weakened the government's program of drug annihilation.
    Earlier, state prosecutors just sought a 15-year prison sentence for Sandiford, who was arrested in May when customs officers at Bali's airport discovered 3.8 kilograms (8.4 pounds) of cocaine in her luggage.
    Indonesia has extremely strict drug laws and convicted smugglers are often executed.

    Good rule of thumb, if you don't agree with some countries laws, don't break them or stay home.

    Now, if this nice old lady was the victim of some scumbag at the airport slipping the drugs into her bag without her knowing to smuggle it in, I would feel total sympathy for her. But 99.99999999% of the time, that's not the case.

    After seeing that, tough shit!

    If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

    I always do laugh at the Brit news when they cover stories of their subjects breaking laws around the world. No matter what it is, the other countries laws are always barbaric and their citizens are always innocent and were just caught up in some sort of misunderstanding. When they are absolutely guilty, then they always demand leniency or for them to serve in the U.K.

    drugs should be legal and with them taxes you can educate the people, if people get addicted send them to the jungle for an ayahuasca or iboga session and a month of abstinence.

    This documentary is on a group of nine who were arrested on heroin smuggling. Two have lost all appeals are awaiting a firing squad. Most of them were given life imprisonment. Bottom line. Don't fuck around with drugs in Indonesia!!!

    The Brits at least find public sympathy for a death sentence. Us Americans want the world to cry when one of its pussified, spoiled teens has to get a caning in Singapore. This is why I tend to vote republican; because the degree of pussification on the dem side sickens me :)
