Yan Yanming, who broke into a a boys dormitory and killed 9, has been put to death in China. The trial and execution was very quick for courts in China. However experts feel that the case received special attention to reassure the public.

BEIJING - A 21-year-old man who broke into a high school dormitory and stabbed nine Chinese boys to death has been executed, less than two months after the attack, the government said Thursday.

Yan Yanming was put to death Tuesday in the central province of Henan, where he was convicted of attacking the boys on Nov. 25 in the city of Ruzhou, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

The trial and execution were unusually swift for Chinese courts, and might have been expedited in an effort to reassure the public amid a series of such knife attacks at Chinese schools.

I have never made any bones about my dislike of the human rights violations of the Communist government of China. However, they do not fool around with this type of criminal. Look at the recent execution in California where then may stayed on death row for over 20 years before his sentence was executed. In open and shut cases like this, we should also expedite punishment as well.

I agree. In an open and shut case or a case with DNA proof they should take them out of the court room and shoot them.

If there is a chance it could be the wrong person then its different, but if the case is air tight, shoot them, why waste food on them that could be better fed to rats at the dump

yes, China is a much more effective killing machine. In some cases, they just run over them with a tank and fore-go the trial.


kudos

I also respect the 'timely' manner in which this was done. Maybe if the US did this the crimes like this would drop, and one thing is for sure, no repeat offenses.

I believe that you omitted your [sarcasm] tags at any rate its HARDLY comparable to the pro democracy protests. The guy admitted he did the killing, there was no doubt reasonable or otherwise. Would you rather have 20 years of appeals? Not if it was one of my kids in that dorm :shk:
