Q: They are so young; they deserve the death penalty. Change the law?

Local article. http://m.sp.uczzd.cn/webview/news?app=uc-iflow&aid=5676352550991158383&c...

 

 

Location---Hunan, Changsa, a vocational institute.  Story: Dec 6, 2017, 0:15 a student kicked a dorm room (usually multiple students in dalu dorm) door open as he visited someone. One student got into dispute with the door kicker. The kicker went back to his room and said he was beaten up, came back with six other students. 

 

The victim, another guy in the room (not the first guy), said, 'quiet'.  Five of those seven beat him up until his death. Hospital report -- right ear full of blood, neck covered with bruises, skull sustain serious injury.

 

They aimed for the head as usual. Remember the dalu student in UK Imperial College? Under dalu legal system the sentence is only a few years due to age protection.  (under 15)

 

One comment is insightful.  'They are so young, all of them deserve the death penalty'.  (ie these low lives would be released in a couple of years and  of all likelihood remain the same, if not worse after learning new tricks from other convicts).  Many others said, 'only those who flunk at school low lives are sent to technical schools. Waste them'.

 

Would changing the law by reducing the age solve the problem?  (That is what some local netizens recommend).

Hang 'em high.

 

That letting people off because of age seems so odd.  Fk 'em.  The world is not going to end because there are a few less rats inhabiting it.  Quick lesson from good ol' Mother Nature, if/when a wild animal births a handicapped it kills it.  Sorry, natural selection is not all 'touchy feely'.  Those kids knew what they were doing. Letting them off would be a mistake.

Slightly confused... if they were under 15 years old, then why is there a photo of a vocational college (where students should be at least 17 years old)??

 

So - what would happen in our countries?

 

Well, firstly, they probably wouldn't be done with straight out 1st degree murder... premeditation with the desire to actually kill is important! So, at best, 2nd degree murder. More likely GBH causing death, or manslaughter. Which carry lengthy(ish) prison terms.

 

The BS about "Many others said, 'only those who flunk at school low lives are sent to technical schools. Waste them'."  WTF sort of attitude is that??? The number who flunk at school is huge (if, by 'flunk', we mean not a god enough score to get into a university... which seems to be the intent, given the mention of 'technical school'). Which is saying... all you mechanics, plumbers, electricians, chefs, and other trades - you are all scum who deserve to die! Now, THAT says a lot to me!!!

 

 

And, lastly - underage. Well, in most countries, if you're below the legal age of maturity (which varies), it is presumed that a lighter sentence is appropriate so that you can learn the error of your ways and rehabilitate quicker. I imagine that at least a couple of those kids had shit in their pants when they found out the other guy was killed (which was possibly an 'accident' - as in, they expected to rough him up a bit... not do permanent damage... priors, anyone??) For me, in this case, I might be inclined to be a bit more lenient (and not have them executed!) There are, however, many other crimes that 'underage' kids commit that would be deserving of harsher punishments (including, perhaps, execution). Rape, torture, child abuse come to mind.

Age re crime is interesting.

On a slight tangent from the OP, it is a fact that toddlers in the US kill more people per year than Muslim immigrants. I think it is about 22 a year on average. Accidental of course.

Anywway, let China do justice as it does it. OK China is not the most just country in the world, far from it.

Unless your an American nicking expensive sunglasses of course.

There are different types of Vocational schools, has more to do with translation. Over 13 you should be eligible for the death penalty. Full sentences should be given in the least.

I totaly completely and utterly reject the death penalty.

Reason number one...Political popuralisim. Killing people to gain votes.

Reason number 2 ... Jesus said no.

Reason number 3. I am a sovereign citizen. What right does a corrupt government have to take my life.

Reason 4. God gave me my life.

Reason 5... If you take my life, in the name of God, and God does not agree.... guess where you are going....

Reason 6. Thou shall not kill.

Reason 7. Forgiveness?

Reason 8. God is American... not Chinese.

Reason 9 . America is about to have peado Roy Moore elected to the senate.

Reason 10.... its none of your fucking business.

Reason 11.... It would be your fucking business if your orange fuckwit knuckle dragging cockwomble commander in chief was actually fighting for human rights.

But the tweet ban did not not apply to him.

So not his fucking problem.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
