    In my opinion anyone who is caught smuggling drugs should be executed.
    The damage that these drugs do is enormous.
    Drugs should be legalized and sold in the liquor section.

    Portugal is I believe the first country to take a pragmatic view of drug addicts.
    It is no longer illegal to hold small quantities of previously illegal drugs.
    Portugal treats the addicts as opposed to other countries who treat addicts as criminals.
    Portugal continues to locate drug smugglers and treats them harshly when found.

    Unfortunately there is no death penalty within the EU.

    Thats very sharia/commie/bolshevik/nazistic of you guys.

    So do you guys love china for executing smugglers or hate them because you cling to the wild idea and far-flung idea that china set him up?


    As for me I think the guy was just too badass to live which is the likely case. A muslim Uk citizen in a drug smuggling operation in central asia through china. Something cool to do overseas. But never worth the risk of getting caught if you ask me.
    We don't execute smugglers. We give them the universal human right to a fair trial. Then we send them to jail. And when they get out? Back to Me-Ji-Ko.

    I do not think its right. But at the same ime you have no room to complain when you willingly go to such a country and commit what that country considers a crime there.




    Perhaps China does not buy into the idiotic notion that you should be lenient on someone just because the criminal or some quacks claim the criminal is insane.



    I never said I agree with what China did. Even though I think certain drugs should stay illegal I do not think it is a execution worthy offense. The fact some quacks claim the person is insane is irrelvent to the fact he committed what that country considers a crime.
    It is not an idiotic notion....

    The U.S jurisprudence has developed a great deal of jurisprudence relating to criminal culpability since the important British case of MacNaughten. To be guilty of a crime a person must have committed both the physical and mental element of the crime. Thus mental illeness, raises real issues as to whether the accused mentally comprehended their actions.

    Consequently, your notion that mental illness is irrelevant, demonstrates your lack of knowledge of the rich common law jurisprudence that has developed in your nation and fellow common law nations. And let me tell you, even textualists see the importance of the MacNaughten rules..... But maybe I'm wrong, maybe the legal profession in all it wisdom has no f*cking clue, and maybe we should abrogate mens rae as soon as the crime involves drugs. Absolute liability and the death penalty for drug smuggling...
