    What a sad, sad situation for everyone involved. The witness identified the guy because he was "scared of the authorities" wonder how often that happens?
    And this is EXACTLY why the DP should be ABOLISHED!! My God what a tragedy, 17 years old.

    How tragic and it makes you wonder how many other innocent people have been or will be put to death.

    Really are you surprised? this is happening, people do sit in prison TODAY for crimes that are not theres. No i am not saying that most are innocent i am saying the "system" gets it wrong SOMETIMES. Scary thought, not only a sad one.

    people reading this shouls also view and reply to my post about Van Toung Nguyen (Australian) in Singapore scheduled to be executed in in 11 days. Our government vehemently opposed the DP as do I and it will be a shocking loss of life and totally unfair on his mother who is the innocent party in all of it.

    This kind of injustice is always sickening. And . . if the story is true, I would like to see them go after the prosecuters and police officers who did a half-assed job. They are as guilty of murder, as anyone. Let them pay the penalty too.
