(Newser) – A British grandmother on death row in Indonesia for drug smuggling has lost her second appeal to have her sentenced reduced. Lindsay Sandiford, 57, was arrested last year after customs officers in Bali found more than 10 pounds of cocaine in her luggage. She could still be saved by a presidential pardon.

I recall traveling through some of the Southeast Asian countries and as soon as you arrive prior to hitting Customs there are signs warning all foreigners that the penalty for smuggling drugs is death. You play the game, you pay the price.

No sympathy here. Maybe she should have looked into the penalty prior to committing the crime.
