Q: Capital Punishment rescinded?

A young university student (Han, 23, Female, Guangdong) I know swears up & down that Capital Punishment has now been rescinded in the PRC.

 

Did I miss something?  Wouldn't this have been huge international news?

No, it has not been rescinded.

I just asked one of my Police friends. "So what?" you say?

He happens to be an executioner.

Said it is alive and well (though not in those words).

Wow, like a young 23 year old would really know what's going on. I doubt she knows and is trying to stir something up. I would keep my eye on her if I were you. Swearing is not a good thing!

A few months ago, a few crimes that previously held the death penalty were taken off those books. Oddly enough, they were mostly white collar crimes (ie, bribery etc) - some of the ones that, IMPO, think should have remained on the books.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
