    Chinese school attacker executed

    Link
    BBC News - Chinese school attacker executed

    Quote(A man who attacked 29 children and three teachers at a nursery school in east China has been executed, state media says.

    Xu Yuyuan, 47, knifed his victims at the Zhongzin pre-school in Taixing city in the Jiangsu province on 29 April. )

    That would have been April 29th /2010.

    This man was arrested, tried, found guilty sentenced to death and finally executed.

    Much better system than permitting a condemned person to live in prison for anything up to 18 years and then attempt to escape justice by claiming conversion to religion.

    I feel like there has to be some sort of middle ground between 18 years and 1 month to reach a result.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Well... I kinda agree with you RightNYC, but, and hell I didn't get to see the evidence, it's one of those rare occurences, where a clearly guilty man, got what he deserved.

    I agree. 18 years maybe a long time, but in like a 5 or 6 year time frame there can be at least two appeal cases I would imagine. God forbid it is found out that the person put to death is innocent, but because we killed them within the first two months it is too late.

    I'm worried about China's death penalty. They seem to use it in many cases, and it's some belief that the Chinese sell the organs of the executed for profit. They even have a death van, no need for jail time. In communist China death van come home to you China's hi-tech 'death van' where criminals are executed and then their organs are sold on black market | Mail Online

    Re: Chinese school attacker executed

    I do have to admit that at least in this instance this person was patently guilty and thus deserved his punishment.

    Personally I am not in favor of the Death Sentence if that is handed out for circumstantial evidence, there have been far too many people executed who have been subsequently found to be innocent.

    I think it very likely that China does partake in the sale of Human Organs.

    Should these come from executed criminals, I suppose that rationally speaking the Chinese would assume that something good comes from these criminals.

    Re: Chinese school attacker executed

    I'm for the death penalty, since mostly I think people like the person who did the crime in the op don't deserve to

    However I still think they should put him in prison instead of sentencing him too his death.

    One of the parents say that the man deserved to die for what he had done to those children.

    Re: Chinese school attacker executed

    Because the Chinese justice system is inherently corrupt and dishonest, we have no way of knowing if the man who was executed was actually the guy who conducted the attack on the school. Even the statement of motive that was released could have been fabricated.

    It could have been the right guy for all we know, but you can't trust Xinhua news agency with anything they say.

    I am against the death penalty in general but I always feel even more uneasy about executions in China for the reasons above.

    Heh... the U.S. system has its problems but it is nowhere near the level of corruption in China.
