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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

It is a sad realization that some so called conservatives would welcome a totalitarian government as long as THEY get to be the ones making the decisions.

I don't know if the drug wariors have the same sick lust for power that defines liberals elites, or if they simply share the emotional aversion to logic that cuases a gun grabber to blame murder on a pistol instead of a person.

They are pawns. Period. The real drug trafficker king-pins are in government. As long as the War on Some Drugs exists, it will be instrumental in the continued growth of corruption.

But you don't care about that. You think that laws are magic.

Well I guess without a complete dossier on every aspect of their lives, triple proven by cameras and recordings, I guess no one on the planet can certify that they aren't cop killing cerifiable maniacs, now can they?

But as for the rest of us, knowing what we know about the COMMUNIST CHINESE and WHO they choose to execute, and WHY, well let's just say that 99% of the American population would presume THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what you've pulled out of thin air.

But hey, I understand - uniformed execution fetishes are long acknowledged in psychiatry, so you have to protect your enjoyment by rationalizing these women as evil, even though they are about to be murdered by one of the most evil political regimes to ever exist on the planet Earth in all of human history. I just hope you're taking your meds.

Now THAT’S a “War on Drugs.”

And it still doesn't do a damn thing.

I have friends and relatives that frequently travel to China and Korea. The drugs there flow just as freely in popular bars and clubs as they do here. They tell me that if you’re white or look wealthy, people constantly offer you drugs and prostitutes when you go out. Asian countries probably do have a lower percentage of drug use than the US, but it is more due to culture and economics than availability.

Prohibition only makes the bootleggers and revenuers rich by creating a super-profitable black market. It is a hundred times worse than the liquor runners of the 1930s. For example, cocaine costs about as much as caffeine powder to produce but can be sold for more than its weight in gold. Bootleggers had to smuggle truck loads of bottles(and still got through). Now, the same profit can be made by smuggling a few packets of cocaine inside someone’s stomach.

Another example: Pot costs about as much to produce as basil but is worth its weight in $20 bills to a smoker. It is a literal money tree that any idiot can grow on their own. All one needs is a few square feet of garden or a box no bigger than a nightstand. Short of 24/7 surveillance, nothing will stop it. Even in North Korea, where people are under constant surveillance, they have a booming meth market.

This “war” cannot be fought with force or control. It can only be fought on the cultural and social side. By allowing Hollywood and music studios to dictate American pop culture, we are losing that battle.

I’m all for the war on drugs (especially considering the alternative), but often people that are political opponents are charged with ‘drug crimes’, and then jailed (or executed). Iran is notoriously famous for this approach to political opposition.

Yea, I think the Constitution gives the federal government control over what crosses our borders.

Of course. Congress has power to regulate commerce with foreign nations. However,the drug war also includes Congress's use of the Commerce Clause to set intrastate drug policies, rather than the states under the Tenth Amendment.

Were you aware that two appeals court justices, both friends of Scalia, cited his opinion in the Raich case to uphold Obamacare?

__________________________________________

Both Silberman and Sutton cited Scalia's opinion in 2005 upholding strict federal regulation of marijuana in the case of Angel Raich, a Californian who used home-grown marijuana to relieve her pain. "If Congress could regulate Angel Raich when she grew marijuana on her property for self-consumption," Sutton wrote, "it is difficult to say Congress may not regulate the 50 million Americans who self-finance their medical care."

This has nothing to do with what you posted, but check this out. Thomas's warning in the Raich case has proven to be very prescient.

______________________________________

Thomas: Respondents Diane Monson and Angel Raich use marijuana that has never been bought or sold, that has never crossed state lines, and that has had no demonstrable effect on the national market for marijuana. If Congress can regulate this under the Commerce Clause, then it can regulate virtually anything, and the Federal Government is no longer one of limited and enumerated powers.

Sutton: "If Congress could regulate Angel Raich when she grew marijuana on her property for self-consumption," Sutton wrote, "it is difficult to say Congress may not regulate the 50 million Americans who self-finance their medical care."
