Chinese Official Executed For Theft

Recommended Posts

An official of North China's Hebei province was executed Friday for stealing and selling cultural relics, including many on the state protection list, a local court said.

Li Haitao, chief of the cultural relics protection authorities of the imperial garden in Chengde city of Hebei, was executed after China's Supreme People's Court approved the death penalty on a conviction of embezzlement, the Intermediate People's Court of Chengde said.

By taking advantage of his post between 1993 and 2002, Li was convicted of stealing 259 cultural relics stored in the depository of the Eight Outer Temples, an imperial compound built on hillsides to the north and east of the three-century old Summer Mountain Resort.

Li, 50, replaced the relics with copies, inferior or incomplete objects and instigated subordinates to alter their archives.

We were recently debating the rights and wrongs of capital punishment and some views were more extreme than others, although nobody suggested it as a punishment for anything other than murder. This seems a tad excessive to me, any thoughts?

Method of execution is bullet in brain. That will change if brain transplants become possible ;).

Presumably that will be ok as long as the medics use a tourniquet to prevent bleed out...

Nope, firing squad is expensive. Instead they have lethal injection for various reasons.

#1 they have execution vans, i.e. you regular transit van which can therefore carry out this penalty anywhere and everywhere.

#2 lethal injection leaves more organs intact therefore more can be sold.

#3 Lethal injection is much cheaper due to less clean up costs and not having to pay for the men in the squad.

I think the next of kin receive an invoice for the bullet(s).

i belive its the back of the neck, then into a van to whip out the internal organs sharpish.

The person in the OP was executed by lethal injection although they do still shoot people in the head. There are some pics of the execution process here but be warned THESE ARE VERY GRAPHIC.

I'm not altogether sure if a country which executes more people than the rest of the world put together is one we should be so keen to export our jobs to.

Some (don't know how many) states in the USA execute people and the USA holds 'suspects' for years in prison, in land that is not the USA, where they learn new sports like water boarding. If there is evidence against the 'suspects' they should be tried, even if the trials are held 'in camera'. And the USA is our best friend.

I haven't looked at the pics but I guess the victim would not notice the difference between being shot or electrocuted.

Waterboarding, method of the Professionals.

This kind of shit is why I do my best not to buy chinese stuff.

It's as bad as trading with terrorists IMO.

If you go back a page from the pictures Harry posted (replace the final _2 with a _1 in the url) you get some interviews with executioners. The really chilling thing is what one of the young policemen has learnt from being an executioner (my underlining):

The armed policeman who uttered those words is only 24 years old. He has already executed 23 prisoners. He said that his strongest reactions after executing someone is, "Never commit crimes! Never become an enemy of the people!"
