@D, whatever...your statement is irrelevant to the subject. What perspective is that? Drug trafficking by foreigners you mean? Keep recreational drugs out of Bali and keep it safe.

@Randy, well, you can get shot to death for smuggling a plant here, can't you? And if you haven't been robbed and burgled and mugged here several times, then you can't understand the ire of us with feet on the ground. This is my perspective.

@Wayan Bo, the most ignorant thing I have ever heard. The only autonomous province of Banda Aceh that practices the sharia law. So his crime of opportunity deserves to be thrown in the lion's den??

Everyone knows the rule of law exists in Indonesia without having a limb missing or risking being canned in a public town square for the world to see.
