Ofcourse they don't.
I cannot find it in my heart to feel sorry for this woman She chose to smuggle drugs knowing the penalty if caught and should be left to rot.Anyone who has had a relative whose life has been ruined because of drgs will feel no sympathy.She accepted the job and must accept the pay

I'm quite certain you do not have a heart Christina.
So if she is sent back to UK and does not serve a term for her crime, what message does this give to other would be drug smugglers!!
If you comit the crime , you do the time.
justice must not be tampered with.

Execution by firing squad is pretty severe 'justice' Molly, don't you think?
if she is found guilty of drug smuggling she should serve her sentabce in Laos why should she be transfered to one of our holiday camps to serve probabaly a 3rd of her sentance If our prisons were as harsh as these maybe few criminals would be willing to re-offend

Ummm......well yeah, if we executed all our criminals then they wouldn't actually exist to re-offend.
Ofcourse theses comments and their ilk are voted up and the 2 sensible ones in support of getting her out of Laos are voted down.
It states in the article that she still faces death, the only thing currently keeping her alive is being pregnant, after she gives birth there is no guarantee she will be safe from execution, again it says this in the article. I don't understand the belief that the death penalty is a deterrent as the facts suggest otherwise but I suppose facts don't matter when there's a killing to be had.
Whenever I start to forgot how much I hate the Fail along comes a case like this and the venomous little bastards that are Fail readers come out of the woodwork to spout forth their sanctimonious hypocritical bile.
