JUSTICE: Terrorists no longer smiling in Bali

justicebyzeg Zeg – our favourite cartoonist – speaks for many with his cartoon.

The mass murderers – who killed 88 people in a bombing on Bali – have now been put to death and sent to hell.

We see imperfections in our legal system and say its verdicts are too uncertain to allow courts to mete out the death penalty. This of course is an argument too for not punishing any crime, ever. For as sure as it is that the death penalty cannot be reversed nor can those sentenced to jail wrongly be given their time back.

Few seriously disputed the imposition of the death penalty for Iraqi tyrant-butcher Saddam Hussein or Nazi war criminals for that matter. In the pantheon of villainy, Amrozi and his fellow killers have certainly deserved their place on the bonfire.

While both sides of politics enthusiastically trip over themselves to oppose the death penalty, it might be better for them to focus on opposing terrorism and the vicious killing of eighty-eight Australians:

    One of the things that jumps out is the diversity of the names. This country will take in so many and unite them under a flag and an attitude. May god bless all of them. Australia forever.

    Yeah, Indonesia is such a monoculture, no diversity at all. All have abu and mohammed in their name. Which helps cause the list of Indonesians killed is quite simple to list.

    Executions should have been streamed live on the web.

    Actually they killed 202 people – 88 of which were Australians. You only count Australian deaths?
