Perhaps we made the wrong move....
I've been reading a lot of blogs commenting about the hanging of Nguyen. 49 out of 50 blog were blasting at Singapore for hanging him. Everyone is cursing and swearing at Singapore. Call us barbaric, call us cesspool or call us whatever horrible name you can think of. Boycott optus, stop flying SIA or cancel all trade ties with singapore.
Perhaps Singapore really made a wrong move.
Perhaps we should just let Nguyen pass board the plane to australia with 400g of Heroin. Perhaps we should even advice him of a better way to hide the drugs so that he can get thru the Australian Airport safely. After all, he is doing that for a good cause. He is doing all these to help clear his brother's debt. How could we arrest and hang a robbin hood like him? Singapore is so wrong.
Why did Singapore bother to stop the drug from reaching Australia soil? Its is clear that those drugs are just in transit, heading for Australia and not Singapore. It is totally none of our business. Why do we interfere with Australia and their human right. Why don't we just let him go and bring the drug to Australia? After all, its the Australian who will use the heroin, not Singaporean. Its the Australian who die of drug overdose, not Singaporean. Why do we bother so much?
Why did we stop someone who is smuggling drugs to help his brother? Why didn't we assist him? Help him deliver the drug safely to Australia and save his brother. Never mind the hundreds of drug abusers who die of overdose, Nguyen's brother need to be saved. Nevermind the harm that those drug will bring to Australia, Nguyen's brother is more important. Who cares about those drug abusers? Let them buy the heroin and die of drug overdose. Nguyen's brother is more important. Nguyen's brother needs to be saved.
Perhaps the police officer on duty that day should just close one eyes on Nguyen and let the drug reach Australia soil. Singapore, you killed robin hood. You killed a good man who is trying to help his brother. You killed Australia's national hero.
Damn you Singapore. Damn you.
