湖北省鄂州市网友 ezzhb:

Since ancient times, beautiful women have been ill-fated, because of their beauty, but even more because of an unequal society. It is mine manager Ding and the head of the working group who truly deserve to die. One weak woman, how is she supposed to protect herself? So sad, such a pity!

河北省保定市网友 枫叶晚情:

Instead of executing major criminals and evildoers, only the weak and small and executed. This is the shamelessness of China’s laws/legal system.

四川省网友 当沧桑不以泪洒:

Don’t be too emotional, China cannot wantonly abolish the death penalty. China’s high courts are like this, those who shouldn’t be executed are, while those who should aren’t. Executed and not executed, the decision is always correct.

上海市浦东新区网友 hhsm333:

Apart from the drug trafficker, as well as the adulterer who murdered her husband, the rest should not have been executed, and even blameless/innocent of committing a crime. The first few should have been overturned/exonerated, and given compensation by the state.

北京市网友 手机用户:

What kind of law/legal system is this? A lot of these are all different degrees of justifiable self-defense. In China, that’s worthy of the death penalty?

上海市网友 手机用户:

These members of the state machine who shoot people in the back of the head, I wonder if they’re able to sleep at night? Taking the lives of these young people, some of whom are innocent and only guilty of minor forgivable crimes, I wonder if they’re able to find peace in their lives?

河南省平顶山市网友 流泪中国:

The editor was too careless with the images, even posting obviously PS‘d photographs. One should investigate clearly the details of a case before making conclusions, not just post some things found on the internet. The description of Ren Xue’s case in the article simply has never been heard of before!

河南省驻马店市网友 woaiwc88:

Fake, the photo of Tao Jing supposedly in 1991 being executed, I noticed that the shoulder straps of the police behind her are those after the change in uniforms. However in 1991, the uniforms had not yet been changed, such a deception to the masses, and the fourth photo is even more PS‘d photograph. Those with a discerning eye can tell with just one look.

辽宁省鞍山市网友 中国大龙:

An individual’s sadness, a society’s sadness.

北京市网友 手机用户:

It doesn’t matter how big the crime, those with money will not suffer the consequences. Those without money, however, will be shot even for the smallest crime. This is what China is like.

四川省成都市网友 手机用户:

Women commit crimes are always because of a man who deserves to die! None of these women deserved to die!

天津市网友 手机用户:

Shot for embezzling 550,000? Then what about those who are now embezzling hundreds of millions, how come we don’t see anything happening to them?

东省东莞市网友 手机用户:

How come Guo Meimei isn’t amongst them? Didn’t she embezzle as well?

北京市网友 BFENG12003:

How many souls who died unjustly are watching China? In China, when can we truly give the weak the chance to avoid being wronged?

What do you think?
