An Indonesian court upheld the death sentence against a British grandmother convicted of smuggling $2.5 million worth of cocaine into Bali, a court official said Monday.

No threatening letters in Bali, they execute criminals.

Indonesia has very strict anti-drug laws and most of the more than 40 foreigners on its death row were convicted of drug charges.

Drugs are a personal choice that should not be considered a crime Especailly when the most dangerous and detrimental to society are the legal ones given to us by doctors.

This lady is only 56 years old. She claims she was forced to smuggle the drugs, or her children would be killed. She's probably guilty as hell, but even so, should she be killed? She's in a very tough spot. It reminds me of the movie "Midnight Express", which is a true story: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077928/

Here's the link to the latest CNN story about her too:

I would not be surprised if her kids were held over her to be coerced.Southeast Asia is pretty rough.
