Court: Bali bombers may be killed by firing squad

with 2 comments

Indonesia’s constitution does not prohibit death by firing squad, a top court ruled Tuesday, clearing the way for the execution of three men convicted in the 2002 Bali nightclub bombings.

The nation’s Constitutional Court dismissed the men’s request for a traditional Islamic-style beheading and claims by their defense lawyers that being shot to death is less inhumane.

“There is no method of execution without pain,” said presiding Judge Mohammad Mahfud, outlining the decision.

The defendant’s suffering is a logical consequence of the death penalty under Indonesian law and “cannot be categorized as torturing the convict,” the nine judge panel concluded.

So now we are debating why the people condemned to death penalty after killing 200 people have to suffer?? Are we insane??
