click for death
Friday December 2
Paris via that most enlightened of countries, Singapore - "City of the Lion"

From todays Sydney Morning Herald: "Do I have a chance?" he joked.

As he stood in the doorway of his cell, just a short walk from the gallows, Nguyen Tuong Van turned to his guards and asked the question all Changi prisoners ask as they leave for court.

"Bu chance bu?" he said, using the Hokkien or Chinese dialect favoured by prisoners.

He then walked to the gallows trapdoor to the religious singing of his fellow inmates. He was hanged at 6am Singapore time for smuggling 396.2 grams of heroin.

Two words for you Singapore: fucking barbaric.
