You may remember on May 6, we reported that a young black British girl, Samantha Orobator, had managed to avoid the death penalty over a drug trafficking charge because she somehow became pregnant while in custody. But what we didn’t realize is that they might drop the hammer in the opposite direction just as hard. Now she has been sentenced to life in prison.
When she was apprehended by authorities, she was carrying about half a kilogram of heroin. The law in Laos is to put those who are caught peddling drugs to death, but the baby she’s carrying saved her from that. But for what? Her pregnancy only ensured that she’d live out the rest of her days behind bars. And who gets her baby?
Imagine if this law was in place in the U.S. I don’t think ANYBODY on the block would take a chance at selling drugs after Ray Ray and Craig were submerged into the back of the police car and never came back home. Do you think this is too extreme? Or do you think someone has to pay the cost to send the message out there? Check out the report:
