CBS News – An Indonesian court sentenced a British grandmother to death on Tuesday for smuggling cocaine worth $2.5 million in her suitcase onto the resort island of Bali — even though prosecutors had sought only a 15-year sentence. Lindsay June Sandiford, 56, wept when judges handed down the sentence and declined to speak to reporters on her way back to prison, covering her face with a floral scarf. She had claimed in court that she was forced into taking the drugs into the country by a gang that was threatening to hurt her children. Indonesia, like many Asian countries, is very strict on drug crimes, and most of the more than 40 foreigners on its death row were convicted of drug charges. In its verdict, a judge panel at the Denpasar District Court concluded that Sandiford had damaged the image of Bali as a tourism destination and weakened the government’s drug prevention program. “We found no reason to lighten her sentence,” said Amser Simanjuntak, who headed the judicial panel. State prosecutor Lie Putra Setiawan told reporters that the verdict was “appropriate,” explaining that prosecutors had been demanding 15 years because of Sandiford’s age.
Jiminy fuckin cricket! Cuncel Da Grandma! Bali does not fuck around huh? Judge was like “15 years? Eh she’s already 55 lets just kill her.” The real question is what the fuck is granny doing running drugs in Indonesia? Out of all the shit you can be doing as a 55 year old grandma you choose smuggling drugs in Southeast Asia. That is literally the last thing a grandmother is equipped to do. My grandma spent her last years buying me Nintendo games and smoking Kent cigarettes till she kicked the bucket. She couldn’t work any appliances. Couldn’t drive a car. Really couldn’t do anything. Because she’s an old women and old women are basically useless. But here’s Lindsay Sandiford trying to smuggle $2.5 million worth of coke like she’s George Jung. What a great plan she had to – put the cocaine in her suitcase. They’ll never check there, grandma! And the whole “my children’s lives were in danger” ain’t gonna fly over in Bali either. Remember when they caned the shit out of that kid who sprayed some graffiti in Singapore? Plain and simple they’re just itching to kill white folks over there. Just another reason to stick to KFC’s Map of Safety And Happiness and avoid all countries where shit like this can happen:
