Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The reason is obvious

Some news from Vietnam.

HANOI, Vietnam -- Police in northern Vietnam are investigating how a woman on Death Row for drug trafficking got pregnant, a condition that could spare her from facing the firing squad, police and lawyers said Thursday.

Nguyen Thi Oanh, 39, was sentenced to death last year for drug trafficking, and an appeals court upheld the sentence in April, said her defense attorney, Le Van Kien.

But Vietnamese law prohibits pregnant women or women with children under the age of 3 from being sentenced to death. The most severe sentence they can face is life in prison.

Police investigating
''This case is very rare,'' Kien said. ''We've never heard of a case of this kind before.''

Kien said his law office sent a petition last month to law enforcement agencies in Hoa Binh province, about 45 miles southwest of Hanoi, asking them to postpone Oanh's execution after her family said she was two months pregnant.

Hoa Binh police chief Bui Van Lanh said investigators are looking into how the woman got pregnant while incarcerated with several other female inmates at the provincial jail.
They must not teach sex ed in communist countries. Otherwise they would know what the leading cause of pregnancy is.
