Meh, she was guilty as fuck with today's laws but KungFooGoo doesn't think weed should be illegal in the slightest anyway.

Whether weed should be legal or not is irrelevant, KFG. When you're over someone else's house, you follow their rules. When you're in another country, you follow that country's laws.

She should be locked up and the key thrown away. Anyone who's been to Bali knows that their airport is plastered with "Drugs = Death penalty" posters. She's lucky to be in prison.

No, still sans pants. Just very unhappy about people who deserve death penalty using the media to appeal their crimes.

Pretty much this....

Without turning this into a race war, one of the problems with the way Aussie society is going, we have our laws, however, we now see some of these laws starting to be changed to suit certain imigrants coming to the country, holidays being banned etc etc.

If i goto another country i obey their rules and laws pretty simple i would have throught....

The media have made her special. What about Bali 9?

Bella
05-04-2012, 12:30 AM
I think the media jump on cases like this and the bali 9 - because they see some of these international laws as being barbaric and archaic.

Wingman is right, Bali, Indonesia, Thailand...all of these asian countries have posters plastered EVERYWHERE in their airports, you're advised on the plane and there are posters in the airports here when you're leaving Oz for overseas too...so these fools simply take the risk.

Are the penalties harsh? Fckn oath they are. If she was caught with that stash in Oz, she would have received a fine and been charged with intent to distribute but I doubt she would have had a jail sentence, being a first time offender.

In muslim nations, women are killed for having affairs - you steal and your hand is cut off. If you're a female and you show any part of your lady bits - you're literally lashed or stoned by key members of the community.

Archaic, absolutely and in many cases, insanely unjust.

But, they're the laws of that country and as a westerner, it's up to you to abide by them if you're travelling there.

Simple as that.

Shapelle has been away for this, for a long time. And by all media reports it's sending her a bit mental and I do feel for her...and every other westerner caught in the maze that is the legal system in these countries.

But she's very lucky she wasn't executed.

05-04-2012, 12:32 AM
Part of me says yes to release, but she should be lucky she has escaped alive as Bella said, she could have been executed.....

sookie
05-04-2012, 09:59 AM
I don't know much about law.

I am wondering... if shappelle were serving time here. Could she receive a lighter sentence because of mental instability?

Bella
05-04-2012, 10:03 AM
Absolutely sookie.

If they extradited her to serve out to the remainder of her time in Oz, I can guarantee you, she wouldn't serve one more day in prison. lol

kaz
05-04-2012, 10:04 AM
She would have got 2-3 years.....and a big fine.
Then be released for early parole sighting good behaviour.

sookie
05-04-2012, 10:56 AM
however, we now see some of these laws starting to be changed to suit certain imigrants coming here..

Offtopic

I believe as society changes. laws need to change also. For example.
In most parts of the world Gay marriage was illegal 50 years ago. I reckon in a few years time, we will adopt immigrant laws around this subject making it legal.

Anyway
I understand shappelle would receive a lighter sentence here. But fact is. she was caught with drugs in a country who has serious penalties for drug related crimes.

I have not served time, but I can imagine its not a happy place to bekept in. With such a negative environment and your freedom taken away. your bond to develop some mental health issues.

I dont even understand why the Aus public, her family, aus government have a say in what happens to her....shes in another country, they have their rules, she broke them, she should deal with that....

If your that stupid to take drugs into/out of a country like that then you should have to deal with it...

Theres no way in this world that she didnt know the drugs were in her bag....

Why do we want her back here?? What would be the benefit to society in general??

If she comes back and we keep her locked up we have to pay for her expenses, if we let her out she will deal drugs to our kids, it's a lose/lose scenario!!!!

Because she's Australian, Indonesia is a 3rd world shit hole with messed up laws. Having some of their laws here would only make Australia a more draconian/socialistic country/shit hole........like Indonesia :).

It was only marijuana, not speed or heroin or ice or some shit. I think she deserves a second chance for sure. She could benefit Australia in a number of ways ....IF GIVEN A FUCKEN CHANCE..... Why assume she wouldn't?

She's not going to be able to do shit in a cell in Indonesia, I feel sorry for her, she should of got a large fine and sent back to Aus from the beginning.

I don't condone what she did, but I think she got the book thrown at her. I initially never felt sorry for her, but I do now because I have seen people turn their lives around after doing something stupid. This poor girl has paid a heavy price and deserves to come home and have a second chance at life.

She's not a pedophile or a killer, or a sadistic psycho, hell bent on hurting people. She was just a young girl who made a mistake for some quick cash and now she's deffinetly paid the price for that IMO.

FFS, she would of got less for robbing a bank.

Get her home asap IMO, hopefully she can have a life again.

How would you feel if it was one of your kids?.....made a silly mistake and punished as much as her.

I agree its just a bit of weed. It's a bit of weed for us, and frankly if she was here I wouldn't give a fuck. Heck my previous house mate used to refill his bong several times per night.

In Indonesia however, the penalty for possession is death. She was lucky to not get that, and only didnt due to Australian involvement.

In Singapore, there's a penalty for possessing chewing gum. And a harsh one for littering in public. Both of those things are done at norm here, but we must respect the rules of other places. If I was littering I would expect the penalties for doing those things if I happened to do them.

Just like if I go over someone elses house and their rule is to take shoes off before entering I comply. Whereas at my house I don't give a damn.

I can sort of see your point, but I tend to agree with Wingman more, she knew the risk, and she is lucky she did not get executed. May be she will turn her life around may be she won't, really I could not care less about some junky drug dealer either way, it's only weed, but it still carries the death penalty.

I would not travel to Indonesia myself as I think the place is a rats nest anyway but it's their country and their rules, you play you pay. We have piss weak laws and punishments here, this is why people are out of control, cops getting shot, people getting shot in the street, I live in Syndey and there have been several shootings in my local area in the last few years, including a cop getting shot outside a Mosque.

I am soon to move out of here, as I do not want my kids brought up around here, exposed to the scum that is wandering around the streets.

Bit off topic, but the guy was let off, and is now walking the streets again:

Yes most definitely! Countries such as Indonesia or Saudi Arabia and the like are nothing but a bunch of utter hypocrites. Mixing culture, religion, and politics serves no one justly at the end of the day. Shapelle may have done something wrong according to the law of the land sure, however when compared with what the rulers of the countries I've mentioned have done and are still doing, her crime would pale into the land of insignificance. The common men and women pay a huge price (with their life at times) for what? For whom? Based on what: religion, culture, politics, or a confused combination of these three criterias?

You may read my words and automatically think that Fadi is taking sides here. No, Fadi is not taking sides, but what he has chosen to do is to put things into their proper perspectives. That is all.

Bella
27-05-2012, 09:35 PM
Well that has to be handed down by the courts? It's not a 'law' per say, but something that can be argued through the judicial system, to stop her from profiting from her story.

I can't see it happening though, as there's still speculation over whether she's innocent or guilty and regardless of how any of us may judge her, she has always maintained her innocence - there's also certainly a swell of support and sympathy for her situation from the Australian people.

She's lost years of her freedom and youth. Rightlt or wrongly, once home, I can't see them stopping her from telling her story. She'll make a bloody fortune out of this.

It's easy to make jokes at her expense but if you want an insight into what she is going through read The Damage Done by Warren Fellows, if she eventually gets out of Indo alive she deserves all the profit she can milk.

Bella

No one is making fun of her. She will profit from the experience and quite frankly, she'd be mad not to.

Anyone else would, in her position. So why not? There is an intense and relentless fascination with her, by the Australian media and the citizens of this country. I bet a Womans Day story with Schapelle as a bride on the cover, would be one of the highest sellers in it's history! lol

Especially considering, when maintaining her innocence, she continuously seemed heartbroken over never having the chance to marry and have children and have a normal life again. There will be plenty of people, who would love to see her having an actual normal life.

And the media circus will deliver.
