Sympathy for Corby was misdirected

She was found guilty of smuggling 4.2.kg of marijuana into Bali, drugs that would be sold on the Bali streets and then perhaps to our Australian teenagers and tourists with many bad consequences.

Katelyn stated that Schapelle made a point that she was not living like a queen. Should a convicted drug smuggler live like a queen?

She also felt guilty returning to her five-star hotel while Schapelle was returning to her prison cell. However, I maintain do the crime, do the time.

Katelyn said she felt Schapelle required a gift pack but instead Katelyn should give her sympathy to those who need help, such as the addicts who have suffered from drugs supplied by drug smugglers.

My wife and I have visited drug centres and given hampers to them. We are not do-gooders or from a set religion, but after seeing some addicts while I was in hospital we wanted to help.

Katelyn, maybe you could give your next hamper like the one you gave Schapelle filled with toiletries, food, magazines and clothes to a drug-help centre.

The addicts are the ones suffering from the drug smugglers’ greed.

Give them some of your time and you will find the future for them is not great. They will not be granted parole and stay in a five-star resort.

To the editor I say shame, shame, shame. Do not let your staff print such junk. Schapelle is a convicted drug smuggler.

Finally, now Schapelle is free let her be and stop even mentioning her name.

I just hope she and many others have learnt that it is illegal to smuggle or to grow, produce, sell and use drugs.
