So I was just watching this video.


Chinese executions exposed by rare photos - YouTube

This country will literally kill/murder you for relatively minor things (drugs).

To put it into perspective, China executes 4,000 people a year (fast forward to 1:22 in the vid) while the USA only executes 46 a year .

Damm!

Capital punishment in China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The People's Republic of China executes the highest number of people annually, though other countries (such as Iran or Singapore) have higher per capita execution rates. Watchdog groups believe that actual execution numbers greatly exceed officially recorded executions; in 2009, the Dui Hua Foundation estimated that 5,000 people were executed in China far more than all other nations combined.

It sounds like you want to bring some drugs to China? Watch out. Many foreigners have been executed for that, and I support it.

I haven't done any kind of drug in over 20 years.

China executes more people per year, but the US has a higher raw/real number of people in prison. Death penalties are handed down for non capital offenses because Chinese law views them as being capital offenses: for example, as far as they're concerned, drug dealers are directly responsible for supplying drugs that take peoples' lives. The people behind the tainted baby formula scandal were executed. The head engineer and land developer responsible for the building that fell over was executed because the accident killed a worker and would have killed hundreds if the building had been occupied.

In the US, death sentences are handed down with unnerving inequality over race, gender, and affluence. A 19 hear old hood rat who was drunk and stabbed another drunk hood rat in a fit of rage could fry while a middle-aged suburban mom who murders her children one by one gets life.

But, all this has nothing to.do with the aggressive militarization of municipal police forces in the US and the overtly-hostile way it treats its citizens, with people regularly being shot with assault weapons in botched drug raids, beaten severely or tazed while showing no indication of hostility, etc. The police here in China are quite placid: say you get drunk and noisy on the street, you get escorted back home. In the US, that's a trip to the station to be booked, then bail, citation, court hearing, and a blot on your public record. And yet, public drunkenness is less of a problem here.

So while executions are certainly an issue in China, they're also an issue in the US. To say that China is the "worst nation on earth" because of an issue that also dogs America, I thonk is unfair.

I wish the US would adopt the same method and execute criminals as quickly and efficiently as the Chinese, this is just being practical , why waste money keeping guilty people alive? the USA keeps too many people in prisons that should have been executed a long time ago

China is just being practical, it's much more cost effective and efficient

I'm sure with your "go get 'em" attitude, you would be just the person they need to ace those guys. Go for it.

I have no issue with death penalty for drug dealers.
There is a simple way to not get death penalty - not dealing drugs.

Which drugs would you include? Just the really dangerous ones like heroin, or cocaine, cannabis, ecstasy, pills.etc?
