Are they looking for volunteers to tighten the piano wire?

Fair Trials Abroad's Stephen Jacobi said he was "disappointed" at the death sentence.
This makes me sick, had it have been his wife, girlfriend or daughter would he have said the same thing.
Lethal injection just sounds to easy, I could think of other more unpleasent ways to execute to murdering barstewarts. Ie Rope, bricks and a baseball bat attached to a Pneumatic drill.

Her family were saying that they didn't want them to get the death penalty though. :(

Am I the only one that finds it highly suspicious that this case is highly publicised across the Western world, the trial takes about a tenth of the time that it usually does, they confess, admit their guilt and still get the death penalty? I have my doubts that it was a true confession, sorry.

Plus, how often does a party admit their guilt in something like this and still get the death penalty? I'm just a bit dubious...............

I'm sure their PM had a hand in them getting the death penalty, would you want to be seen by the outside world as a country that allows people to murder tourists and not get death themselves. No, you wouldn't, infact I'm sure it's all about the tourist industry. However, they do deserve it anyway for what they've done.

Ok the trail was pushed forward very quickly, but for good reason, the locals rely so very heavily on tourism, they will be well and truely up the creak with a dollar if this sort of thing continues. I also seem to recall that another rape was alledged to have been committed against another Brit girl a few days ago in the same area. The 2 scumbags confessed the moment they were caught.

I will be surprised if it isn't commuted to life imprisonment on appeal. And goodness knows what a Thai prison is like.
Doubt it - Thaksin has got behind this personally. The only way the two fellas will escape the injection is if they receive a royal pardon and I can't see that happening. Jonwilly's best placed to comment on this mind - my stint in Bangkok was only 2.5 yrs.

Erm, how about the British tourist that was pushed from a bridge in Australia last year? As I recall he was trying to rob her at the time. No death penalty there, but people still visit the country.

I am not saying the death penalty is entirely a bad thing (I'm sure there are threads debating this already), but I am highly suspicious of their convictions......

The DNA evidence was damning, there were witnesses, and there's was the only fishing boat to try and dodge a recall order. They are as guilty as a puppy next to a pile of poo. They condemned themselves to death by their own actions, it was their choice to rape and murder knowing the consequences. I think we should congratulate the Thai prime Minister on his firm handling of sex killers.

It wasn't only the beating and the rape. It was the fact that they then drove out to sea with her trailing behind, semi-conscious, in the water. That isn't just an opportunistic crime - it takes a lot of nastiness to kill someone in that slow, horrific manner. I hope their own deaths are bodged and that they suffer a lot of pain. Vile animals.

Don't do the crime, if you can't do the time...

GET A ROPE!!!

Agree with the surprising quickness. Mind, they did plead guilty, so maybe that'll help them when they appeal, they've got a month or so I think.

Take note, British Legal system, when you decide what happens to those who abused those girls in Reading

They didnt fcuk about did they, how about some of that justice in the UK? As long as there is no doubt about guilt and the severity of the crime justifys it then its the way ahead!

It's the police and judge who are to be thanked.

As for the supposed carrot of life rather than death for a confession it may never have been offered. And even if it was, 'ho ho fooled you!' Zero sympathy. The murderers didn't show any.

BirdUK. British tourists are very comfortable in Oz (murders or not) because like Canada, NZ, the US and much of western Europe it's 'familiar' in a way that Thailand for example, is not.

These two were dead men walking as soon as they commited the crime. No way in Hell was the Thai government going to let two scum bags endanger a multi-million pound tourism industry.
Reading between the lines, it's obvious these two were told to plead guilty in exchange for life imprisonment. That's why they looked so shocked when the judge passed the death sentance. Big boy's games, big boy's rules, lads. You threatend the rich and powerful, now you pay the price.
Having said all that, I don't really give a fcuk why the judge passed the death sentance. These two deserve to die. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
