    BBC News - British man said to be mentally ill executed in China

    In my opinion anyone who is caught smuggling drugs should be executed.
    The damage that these drugs do is enormous.

    Whatever. Half of the "law enforcement" in that country is involved in the drug trade anyway. How do you think China White manages to always escape the sea ports and make it to all corners of the world?

    The guy got caught. His loss. Lots of others make it through.

    I could care less if someone claims to be mentally ill. It doesn't the fact they committed the crime.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    "Mr Shaikh's family said he suffered from bipolar disorder.

    They said he had been delusional and duped into a carrying a suitcase that did not belong to him when he was found with 4kg of heroin in Urumqi, north-west China, in September 2007."

    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.

    Excellent observation. I didn't notice he was headed to Xinjiang. Look at his name too. He was definitely profiled in the least, and at best he was setup.

    China commited 72 % of all state sanctioned murders in the world last year.

    This man would not have been put to death even by Dubya!

    He has not got the mental ability to recognise right from wrong.

    China has 1/4 of the world's population. What is their per capita execution rate?

    What kind of trial could this man possibly have had in a half hour? While I don't support drug smuggling, I don't trust China at all when they say this man's human rights were guaranteed.

    they topped over 1700 victims last year.

    It has been reported that the drug smugglers promised to make this poor deluded man a Pop Star in China if he carried the drugs.

    The criteria to be taken to court in the UK is that he would have to have the mental capacity plead guilty or not guilty, this poor man was not capable of that.

    I understand, and although the number is still horrific, the number per capita matters just as much. China has 1.4 billion people. That would naturally increase the incidence of capital punishment by raw numbers.

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

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

    well China excuted this person and what did England do to stop this nothing, yea they stomp there feet and cried like all politition do but in the end England nor any other County in the World wasn't going to do anything do to the fact of global trade.

    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.
