Bali 9 execution: Do you support the death penalty?

As the execution of condemned Bali 9 duo Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran draws closer, it’s the question that’s dividing Australians.

Should the pair face the firing squad as punishment for their crimes?

Some people say yes. They believe Chan and Sukumaran knew risks when they smuggled drugs to Bali and that they deserve to face the consequences. Other people say that killing the men serves no purpose; that they have reformed, they have worked hard to create meaningful lives and that the deserve to live.

In this video by Mamamia TV, the team discuss their personal feelings on the death penalty. And you’ll be surprised to hear that not everyone agrees.
