Summary DEATH DEBATEMost people agree that if someone does the crime, they should do the time. But what if the punishment isn't time in jail? What if it's the capital punishment, something Australia stopped many years ago? That is the debate simmering in Australia right now, as two citizens face the death penalty in Indonesia after being caught trying to smuggle drugs out of the country. BtN looks at the history of the death penalty and the countries that still practice it.CENSUS CHANGESEvery five years, the government undertakes Australia's biggest poll. It's called the census and it asks every person in the country about nearly every detail of their lives. But now, there's been a call to delay the census, from every five years to every ten.
