There's been bad blood between the Uyghurs, who are Turkic Muslims and the Han Chinese for a long time now. Regardless of how China handles this, I'd look for continuing friction.

China has done away with public executions where the condemned was shot in the back of the head. It's all now accomplished by lethal injection in private.The government even has a fleet of execution vans that can travel from city to city to take care of business.

Good for China. That is 13 fewer reasons for fanatics to terrorize Chinese citizens in order to get their murderers released. Too bad we don't do the same.

I believe they shoot the condemned. And bill the family of the convicted for the bullet.

At the price of ammo these days, who can blame them?

You mean they didn't lock them up in cages in some remote island and feed them Big Mac's for being nice to us?
