No, this is not about Van Nguyen, this is about me and my potential future.....
I could be going from here....
But speaking of Van Nguyen.
Do we have capital punishment in this country?? NO!
Do the majority of Australians believe in capital punishment? I should fucking hope NOT!
For a drug crime, should we be killing traffickers? I mean, COME ON PEOPLE!
So then why do 59% of people in the Daily Telegraph yesterday (I know, I know...great paper that it is) "agree that the punishment that Nguyen Tuong Can is due to receive is his just reward?"
Don't give me the 'Well, he was in a country where the punishment is severe.....' blah blah blah.
I asked an ex-colleague today this question. "Do you think that Nguyen deserves to be killed for his crime?"
All he could retort with was, "Well if he's in a country where that is the penalty, that's what happens " But I asked if he thought he deserved to die. He gave me no answer to the question no matter how many times I asked.
I guess he fits into that 59%....
