Facing their last moments with a smile: The Chinese women about to be executed for drug smuggling
Daily Mail ^ | 5th December 2011 | By Rick Dewsbury

Posted on 12/05/2011 1:08:50 PM PST by Niuhuru

A young woman sits cross-legged on the ground laughing playfully as she is fed a lychee. Another plays cards in pair of baggy pink pyjamas.

The moving images could show any group of young women as they go about their daily lives in prison.

But just hours - and in some cases minutes - after the pictures were taken, each of the four women were led into a concrete yard and executed.

State property, with the state reserving it's right to it's liberty to do as it sees best.

I'm sure Obamacare will find it's larger liabilities in the plan to need similar disposition for the good of us all.

On the upside, the cancer treatment side effects will not be so long and uncomfortable under Obamacare.

We could learn a lot from the Chinese.

I wonder if the Chicom approach to fighting the war on drugs is as effective as our “Just say no” program?

There is a reason the term gallows humor was coined. The reaction is normal, trying to avoid thinking about what is going to happen. Pretending to be unaffected by the end. When they walk them out there is no longer any pretending.

The Butcher's of Beijing are getting their cut of the illegal drug trade, but let's kill destitute peasant women for doing whatever it takes to put food on their families' tables.

Punish the monkey, let the organ grinder go.

And while we are on the subject, the United States federal government is now documented to provide money-laundering activities for Mexican cartels.

The War no Some Drugs is totally corrupt.

I have to admire how hte Chinese government punishes instead of trying to just take a ‘compassionate’ approach. I just wonder at what point are we going to stop giving a rat’s arse about these criminals. We should forcibly rehabilitate the addicts and also punish harshly the dealers and the smugglers the same way as the Chinese. We need to stop worrying about image and about self esteem and self image as well. The Chinese are tough and don’t care about image.

The Chinese still have bad memories of the Opium dens.

With their male/female ratio so skewed as it is,

I don't think it's a good idea for the Chinese to execute too many of it's women of marriage age

That is, without a doubt, the most asinine, inane, flippant and seditious comment I have ever seen on Free Republic, and that says a lot.

The Chinese government controls every aspect of every one of its residents' lives and either imprisons or executes (or both) everybody who disagrees. They control how many children you can have.

What the hell?

It’s a pity they don’t go after the big players and end this once and for all.

More than enough of those I am sure. Even when they wanted to restrict the trade, the colonial powers didn’t just ignore the ban, but they rubbed it in the faces of the Chinese. Add in how the Chinese were frocibly addicted by the Japanese and it’s no wonder.

But it’s also possible they were executed because they were cutting into the government’s business. Totalitarian governments don’t like competition.

Maybe not the "most", but certainly up there in the top ten.

I take it that it doesn't bother you that the US federal government is documented to provide money-laundering services for the Mexican cartels?

If you were consistent, you would be calling for some federal heads to LITERALLY roll.

Until that happens, the War on Some Drugs can be considered a continuing criminal enterprise, not that you care.

You might sympathize with these women, but I wonder just how ‘nice’ these peasant women might be if in fact they were not in prison and had in fact killed people. We don’t know their exact role except that they were involved in smuggling and involved in the drug trade. How do we know that they did not at all kill people, possibly police officers, and what they would do if turned loose. We only see these people at the point where they are shackled and subdued and certainly under control and being cooperative with the police/guards.

I wonder, just how ‘nice’ they would be in different circumstances and in control of things. It’s like with deathrow inmates; the advocates of abolishment only see offenders when they are in jail and under the complete control of the police and the police who handle them are armed for a reason. People rarely see hte killers as they are torturing and killing the victims and many anti-dealth penalty activists don’t see the stuff the juries do. These women broke the law and have possibly murdered people who have gotten in their way.

I agree that those who are involved in this should pay the price.

What horrible, tragic photos.

Drug dealing is not a good thing, by any means, but the punishment was certainly disproportionate. I had the feeling that these women were still under the Communist cloud where a convict had to be joyful because he was dying for the Fatherland.

Totally revolting.
