The link above is a news article on Manila times about China to execute three Filipino nationals for drug trafficking. This has been a big issue in the Philippines, the vice president even made a trip to China to make an appeal to Chinese government to spare the lives of the said Filipinos. Well, at least he did not try to persuade the Chinese government to have the Filipinos deported back to their own country.

For a time being, the Chinese government decided to postpone the execution. Good news? Not really. They simply postponed it but they did not change their minds.  They just rescheduled the death sentence of these three Filipinos on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. The relatives of these three are on their way to China to say their last goodbyes.

I don’t understand why everyone is concerned with these three, namely Ramon Credo, Elizabeth Batain and Sally Villanueva; they are DRUG MULES – people who use their own bodies to hide illegal drugs (mostly by swallowing capsules, or inserting them directly into their anus or vagina.)

They were not forced at gun point to become drug mules, they were getting paid to do it. They took that ‘job’ KNOWING that what they were doing was wrong and they KNOW the consequence once they get caught. What’s the big deal sensationalizing them?! Why are people going on rallies supporting these criminals? Pleading and begging China’s government to stop the death sentence, blaming the Philippine government of not doing anything.

Do the crime – do the time!!!
