It’s somewhat strange how many SBS articles have been creating sympathy and empathy towards the executions of Chan and Sukumaran that took place yesterday.

Another thing to take into consideration is the number of people on death row across the world.

Amnesty International executions around the world

I’m very sympathetic towards their families and friends who must endure this horrible loss, but at the end of the day, the law is set in place to protect its countries citizens. Drug traffiking is a huge problem currently facing Inonesia and we must be respecful to a countries customs, laws and culture.

I’m not condoning the death penalty nor condeming it, but a global perspective must be taken into consideration in delicate situations like this. Australia is currently violating numerous human rights with detaining thousands of asylum seekers so until we can sort out our own issues, it’s hypocritical to judge and intervene elsewhere.
