4000 Police to protect Tibo Execution

News reports here say that 4000 police personnel are being dispatched to protect the execution of Fabianus Tibo, Dominggus da Silva and Marinus Riwu. The execution will take place at an undisclosed location just after midnight early Friday morning. The men will be executed by firing squad. Central Sulawesi Police Commissioner Badrodin Haiti said that the extra police are to be put in place to prevent any flareups from (Christian) protestors that will disrupt procedures and that the executions will be carried out in a professional manner by the trained shooters.

I have some questions. Where have these extra police been to help prevent recent bombings against Christians? Why are they only brought in to make sure 3 Christians get executed? Why weren't they there during the trial to prevent violent Islamic radicals from disrupting the trial and threatening to kill everyone involved? Why aren't any Muslims being executed for their killing of Christians during the conflict? Why haven't the assailants of the three beheaded Central Sulawesi schoolgirls been brought to trial and convicted? Why isn't more being done for the protection of Christians, Hindus and other non-Muslims in Sulawesi and around Indonesia? Why is justice only for Muslims and any other group gets injustice?
