    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.
    We should declare war on china for executing someone who was guilty? Are you serious? Why invade a country for enforcing its laws?

    That is the law in China. Do you feel sorry for Christians who are executed for proselytizing in communist countries and other dictatorships or do you think that person knew the risk so why are they complaining? Its like sticking your hand through a fence to pet a dog when there is a beware of dog sign clearly posted on the fence or that the dog is trying to bite at your through the fence. I guess it could be looked at that these people died doing that they wanted to do or it could be looked at that they are idiots who knowingly did something stupid and therefore assumed all risks to commit those crimes.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Regardless, I don't trust the People's Republic of China at all. For all I know he was a political dissenter and they had this staged to justify killing him.
    That is, unfortunately, quite the possible scenario. I wouldn't trust China with anything.

    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.
    Will I agree that it's a barbaric thing they did to say all Western Conservative's agree and support this is one false and second out right lie.

    Yes. While perhaps they do know the risks and engage in it anyway, the belief and expression of religion is a base human right and people should be allowed to freely exercise it. Not be thrown in jail or even killed over it. That's not a just action. While I would have less sympathy for a drug dealer than a religious preacher, the death penalty in general should be avoided.

    I think it was a general comment towards China's treatment of their criminals. Still, even with the heroin the man still deserved his day in court with fair representation and defense.
