australia to champion abolishing death penalty
nguyen's lawyer, julian mcmahon, is all fired up to take the cause of ending death penalty in a world crusade. the latest execution in the usa has made it more urgent for australia to stand up even to the usa to make it's stand on the issue stick. otherwise they will look funny if the fight is only for australians. what mcmahon said is that 'mandatory, premeditated state sanctioned killing is legally and morally repugnant.' in the case of death sentence for a drug trafficker, people's views differ. some are kinder and more agreeable with a little drug. to them it is no big deal to abuse oneself. some are more persistent to wipe out this scourge. it is understandable that some will want death and some will not want it. if premeditated killing by a state is so repugnant and must be stopped at all cost, what about premeditated murders? many murders, some very vicious, and gory, were premeditated, with the victim or victims butchered to a painful and horrifying death, pleading for mercy at the hands of cruel murderers. would these murderers also be spared the death penalty too? are we protecting the victims of gruesome crimes or should society protect the abominable murderers? should death penalty be abolished for all crimes?
