Australian Federal Police what an absolute bloody disgrace you are. You can make all the excuses and reasons you like, the truth of the matter is you might as well have pulled the trigger yourselves. You will always have BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS.

In reply to "True Aussie" I don't know where you get the figure of 70% of Australians had no sympathy for these two Australians, would appear 70% did have sympathy. I too am a "True Aussie" but am sick and tired of hearing we should have sympathy for the drug addicts. They are the ones destroying their own lives and those of their family members, nobody else but THEMSELVES.

From the silent aussie masses.
Indonesia needs to be aware that about 70% of real Australians have NO SYMPATHY for those two death (drug) dealing creatures. They knew what they were doing when they took the drugs aboard that aircraft.
As for their rehabilation ....what a joke. They just said what they knew the suckers in Australia wanted to hear.
Take a look at the recidivisim rate in Victoria.....The real figure is about 80% return to prison in Victoria within two years. Those two would have been at it again given half a chance.
Perhaps the bleeding hearts could spare a thought for the families of drug addicts and the families that are ruined and destroyed by people like the Bali two.

Response to "I'm ashamed"
"I'm ashamed", you are not very loyal to your own country and our own people. These fellow countrymen of yours served 10 years and both were shining examples of fully rehabilitated prisoners. For the boys efforts, INDONESIA outrightly murdered them and turned the lives of both families into a living nightmare. Indonesia deserves every derogatory comment hurled at them. I really abhor the thought of any money being given to Indonesia. Where did they get the funds to purchase their fighter jets & military equipment used in their staged "pantomime" transfer of the 2 men to Nusakambungan? YES, WE PROBABLY GAVE THEM THE MONEY TO PURCHASE THE LOT. They treat Australia with absolute contempt.. WAKE UP AUSTRALIA, our own Government hasn't got enough money to support our own Aged Pensioners in the coming years. INDONESIA DESERVES NOTHING.

Can anyone please explain why Indonesia says Australia should respect their laws when it is very clear they don't respect the laws of other countries, often, and successfully getting their own citizens pardoned from death row. What a bunch of hypocrites. Indonesia you are an absolute joke. For people who are sympathetic for the drug addicts - they have got nobody else to blame but themselves. They are the ones who put the needle in their arm. Cigarette smokers too are addicts but I don't hear anybody feeling sorry for them, what double standards. Australia has got to hit these murderous bastards where it hurts, in the hip pocket. Stop the $600 million in aid money NOW. Many thousands of Australians will be watching Mr Abbott to see how hard you deal with these savages.

Message for the Indonesians
A lot of deeply felt anger has been expressed by many people here. Myuran and Andrew are seen as doubly punished, serving ten years in jail, then put to death. The extended public campaign for mercy has been met with cold, cruel indifference and displays of over-stated power and force.

At times Indonesian spokesmen and officials have fallen far short of our expectation of the correct and decent conduct appropriate to sensitive circumstances. The execution was elevated to a public spectacle by security over-kill. The police chief inappropriately smiling for trophy photos with a hand-cuffed Sukumaran taunted us with the crassness of his pose. There are images which will remain seared in our memory.

There were also some good people we came to know, such as the prisoner governor who pleaded for clemency for the two men and ate with them on their last night at Kerokoban jail.

Most of all, over 10 years we watched with growing warmth the transformation of Myuran and Andrew from drug lords to painter and pastor. We grew to like them, in a way we never did Schapelle Corby. These two men had a depth of character which she lacked. Their lives inside jail seemed rich and purposeful. They seemed to actually be decent human beings. Their families seemed ordinary and vulnerable, worthy of empathy and pity.

In the end, the men died bravely and honourably, despite the shabby public spectacle that their death became. They refused blindfolds and sang 'Amazing Grace' as they were shot. They died with the kind of dignity that we'd hope to ourselves display in a similar circumstance.

I am not sure that the Indonesians understand what they have created with these executions. The two men have captured the hearts and minds of many Australians. Consequently a genuine sense of loss is felt for them, along with a deep resentment at the senselessness of their loss.

Wododo killed people who garnered our respect and became our friends. Their death will impact an entire population with an intensity that few events in our history have achieved. Throughout his rule his callousness and the cruelty of the execution process will neither be forgiven nor forgotten.
