Remind you that China's population is more than 4 times than the US. Proportionaly, they're not that far off.

Sure, we'll take population differences into account: 4 x 442 = 1768, still significantly less than the 2,400 verified executions by the government in China. Just a reminder, 403 of that number are arrest-related deaths - this includes deaths where they drive at high speeds and wreck their car avoiding arrest, ones where they have a gun to a hostage's head and are shot to save the hostage, along with the "unofficial executions" the poster being responded to was alluding to. If we just go by what are offical USA executions: 4 x 39 = 156, waaaaay less than 2,400. Proportionally they are nowhere near to each other.

so? That probably means the US should execute more criminals.

USA has much much better human rights records than China.The report is pretty laughable.
Yes USA has a race problem but just read up on how China treats its own indigenous muslims.Banning them from fasting and growing beards lol.
