...An Especially Tricky People
Posted by: Dale Franks on Friday, June 16, 2006

Man, those Chinese are moving full-speed ahead into the modern world.
The country that executed more than four times as many convicts as the rest of the world combined last year is slowly phasing out public executions by firing squad in favor of lethal injections. Unlike the United States and Singapore, the only two other countries where death is administered by injection, China metes out capital punishment from specially equipped "death vans" that shuttle from town to town.

Makers of the death vans say the vehicles and injections are a civilized alternative to the firing squad, ending the life of the condemned more quickly, clinically and safely.
And cheaper, too. Bullets aren't free, my friend.

But what really caught my attention was this:
The switch from gunshots to injections is a sign that China "promotes human rights now...
Of course. How could we doubt it?

I'm sure that those reports that the Chinese are making the switch from firing squad to lethal injection in order to harvest undamaged organs from the executees are just another case of media bias.

Actually Dale, Lethal Injection makes the organs UNHARVESTABLE, I believe. The wife has had four kidney transplants and IIRC injections are not good, firing squad IS good. Actually the BEST method is the motorcycle without a helmet, or as we call them "donor Cycles." Anything that can poison an organ is not good for harvesting.

Yeah, but the modern body parts market isn’t picky. People are dying from getting bad organs these days.

jpm100 "The Modern Body Parts Market?" OK, is that the market that involves people waking up in bathtubs packed with ice and a note to dial 9-11?

I don’t wish to be put into the bizarre position of defending communists. But, in addition to being barbaric to political dissidents, the Commies always had very quick justice for ordinary evil doers, robbers, murderers, rapists etc.
If you are not working for the party, then you better not be a criminal in commieland.

I eagerly await the vociferous public denunciations of China by HRW and the "America You Big Meanie" brigade.

Not. Holding. Breath.

I read that at one time the government used to bill the families of the executed for the cost of a bullet.
