    If their numbers are higher per capita then I would be more alarmed.

    way to cave in England what you should have done was march over tot eh Chinese Embasy place everyone under arrest and inform China that they have two choice.

    Choice #1 Release this person to an UK official and we will release you Embasy

    Choice #2 If you do excute this person then we will excute your Ambasador and declare a state of War.

    But then again in this day and age none of this would happen.

    His family said?

    Where do you get this information from?
    From the family saying that he suffered from bipolar disorder?
    I ask because that in and of itself does not mean that he could not distinguish between right and wrong, nor does it indicate that he was of such limited mental capacity that he could be duped into carrying a suitcase that did not belong to him.


    What did China have to say about his supposed mental illness?
    In a statement issued after the execution, the Chinese Embassy said
    ...
    "As for his possible mental illness which has been much talked about, there apparently has been no previous medical record."
    Which hasn't been refuted by the British Government in any way in the provided news report.

    bull****, just because he's got bipolar dosent mean he's a dickhead, he just can go from being very happy to very sad rather quickly, just because he's got a mental illness dosent mean he can't think for himself, one of the most brilliant men i know has aspergers syndrome.

    Re: British man said to be mentally ill executed in China

    This is a barbaric act, a reflection of China's backwardness, a result of China flexing its muscles as an emerging global power and a worrying indication of China's hardline leadership emerging as they position themsleves for the Hu-Wen succession.

    The standard of China's legal system is appalling. Of couse the Chinese communist party will receive comfort from the rightwing conservatives who agree with killing mentally ill people. Of couse Western conservatives finding common cause with repressive regimes on law and order issues is no great surprise.

    That's somewhat patronizing, how does bipolar prevent people from recognizing right or wrong?

    2,000 executions a year is a drop in the bucket.....
