“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
For months I’ve watched this news story roll out, with each step of the process making me sicker. Honestly, I’ve never been so disappointed in the human race. This case has become a testament to human cruelty and injustice. Cooperation and clemency have been denied, with diplomacy abused to the fullest extent. So to the puppeteers of Indonesian democracy, may your conscience bear the full burden of your crimes. These men may have been drug smugglers over a decade ago, but you’re murderers.
