Death Sentence for 3 Filipino in China


     I don't know if you heard this news but there are three Philippine Citizen in jail in China scheduled to be executed for trafficking drugs. They were caught transporting heroin in office supplies boxes in 2008 but they recently were sentenced to be executed. This would be the first time Filipinos would be executed in China for drug trafficking.

     The Vice President of the Philippines made a trip to China last week to appeal for their lives. The VP argued to the Chinese that the 3 Filipinos were just victims of the large drug cartels. For the first time in the history of China, they granted a delay in the execution. However they still may be executed at a later date.

     While they were definitely guilty of the crime, the death penalty seems a bit harsh. I can't imagine thinking that I only had a few days left in my life and that i knew the exact date in which i will die. That would drive anyone insane. Only God should be the one to take away life. We should always remember them in our prayers that a miracle would happen to change the hearts of the Chinese government officials.

hindi yata matutuloy ang pagbitay sa tatlong filipino..iyon ang nalaman ko sa news kanina..ipagpapaliban daw muna..ang masakit ay kung ano ang kapalit ng iyon para sa ating bansa..baka daw ang pilipinas ay hindi na lang mag habol sa spratly island na habol din ng china..pero kung sakali na itinuloy ang maganda din gawin ay bitayin agad ang mga intsik na nakakulong ng dahil sa droga dito sa ating bansa..gantihan lang naman..iyon ang maganda..kasi kawawa naman na tayo lang ang maaagrabyado..madami ang nasirang buhay ng dahil sa droga na dala ng mga intsik at gawa..kaya dapat na bitayin din sila..

Yes, This is a very difficult judgment.
The death sentence is a very tricky thing and it is sad that at times it is also misused

sana maibaba naman ang sintensiya nila.kawawa naman.wala silang karapatang pumatay dahil ang Diyos lamang ang dapat gumawa nito..this is not appropriate.
