In Indonesia Man collapses after caning for breaking Islamic law

“Herizal bin Yunus, 27, fainted after being caned eight times in front of a crowd in Aceh, the only province of the world's most populous Muslim-majority country that imposes sharia law. Officials carried him off stage after he collapsed during the punishment outside a mosque in the provincial capital Banda Aceh, which was carried out by a religious official dressed in an all-encompassing, hooded cloak. But once he came to, a doctor examined him and said he was in good health, and he was taken back up on stage to be flogged another 14 times. A local religious court had sentenced him to be caned a total of 22 times. The man had broken Islamic laws that forbid people in Aceh from spending time in close proximity with members of the opposite sex who are not their husband or wife.”

Indonesia is the wild west of SEA. The cities are run by biker gangs and drug lords. Theres brothels and prostitutes will offer you quckies while your waiting in traffic. You can bribe the police and immigrasi agents if anything happens too.

The gangsters are worse then the dindus in America. However, they have better boundaries so its easier to evade them. They give you heads up to stay away if your a bule too. The special agents at the airport in Jakarta have a pretty sophisticated command center as well.
