Via television!


Corruption in China: Crocodile Meat, Jade, Piles of Cash
By Christ Buckley

Titillating scenes from “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”? Not quite. They are highlights from a new Chinese television series about official corruption and loose living that is best described as “Lifestyles of the Venal and Disgraced.”

Xi Jinping only prosecutes corrupted officials who don't religiously support him, that's how he beats his political opponents.

True.
But the US rarely punishes any high ranking officials. I do not believe none of them is corrupted.

And of course those who are not tied into the Xi inner circle face the death penalty for corruption. Down on your knees and a bullet to the back of the head.

Death penalty is rarely used on political opponents in China. Usually just prison or house arrest lifetime.

You just can't send all of them into jail. Someone need to stay to do the jobs.
On the brighter side, this anti-corruption initiative is good for the economy, I mean for US Canada Australia, where these corrupted officials sent their children and wealth. Americans should thank for Xi really
