This is retribution/karma, your gun muzzle was pointed in the wrong direction.

中石油CEO [网易山西省朔州市网友]:

Why not make the details public? Were so many crimes really all committed by him?
It’s not that my heart is cynical, it’s that there are too few things in China that are reliable/trustworthy…

琅驭怀哲 [网易江苏省南通市网友]:

Dead men tell no tales.

yhw2203343 [网易四川省成都市网友]:

It’s wouldn’t be using someone else to deceive us, would it?

印小兄 [网易浙江省杭州市网友]:

How come it doesn’t look like the same person? Anyone feel the same way as me?

网易江苏省苏州市手机网友:

If he was shot dead, then we’ll never know if those things were done by him. Put all of the murders on him and don’t give him a chance to refute them.

猪王麻教授 [网易浙江省宁波市网友]:

Now that this brother has come down the mountain [referring to Gele Mountain near Chongqing where police thought he may have been hiding], the people [police] on the mountain can finally leave.

网易江西省景德镇市网友 [wushihen]:

Two days ago, public opinion about him being shot dead had already begun being manufactured, and today sure enough we see him being shot dead. If a sniper can get a head shot (look at the photos where he’s shot in the head), why not immobilize him? Why couldn’t tens of thousands of people searching for him catch him alive? Right now he is merely a suspected criminal, not a criminal. You can blame all of the cases on him and there isn’t any evidence whatsoever to prove that he did them, just surveillance photos. Isn’t this kind of case-solving too sloppy? Every citizen has the right to representation, regardless of whether or not he is a suspected criminal or a criminal. I’ve seen too much news of suspected criminals being shot dead, can you guys please aim your guns slightly lower? Use a trial and the law to pass a death sentence. Otherwise one day any of us could be identified as a suspected criminal and be shot to dead on the stop.
Also, don’t rush to hold a celebratory feast, this is to your shame, not to your merit. I really can’t see what merit can be said of you guys in this matter.

网易重庆市手机网友 [tjh8023qn]:

You’ve been watching too many serial dramas, right?
Zhou Kehua is a serial murderer, had a gun, and was extremely dangerous.
Is the head and chest a larger target or the hand? Simultaneously shooting both of Zhou Kehua’s hands/arms? To immobilize him?
You don’t know what the topography around Tongjiaqiao is like, alleys everywhere, with lots of crowds.

关山mrd [网易山东省临沂市网友]:

Two big questions, that I hope can be cleared up: One is was it really necessary to shot him dead? Two is just what reason compelled him to take this path of no return?

网易湖南省永州市网友 [你知道得太多了]:

To be honest… you at least need to be like when Osama bin Laden was shot… make a photo for everyone to see…

愚人东 [网易湖南省怀化市网友]:

A suicide. The bullet shell is right by his head, so obviously after he had fallen from taking a bullet to his waist, he committed suicide. Head Shot Brother ultimately shot himself in the head.

网易陕西省西安市网友:

Your sister [bullshit], after having robbed so much money, he only has over 300 RMB on him? And so many 10 cent bills? Your sister, after hiding for that many days, in the mountains, out of the mountain, in a cave, in the downtown area [places police have said he may be hiding]? Your sister, with his clothes so orderly and his shoes so clean, dressed like a typical government worker? Where is the truth?

gaucho0 [网易江苏省苏州市网友]:

Looking at the photos, he died from a shot to his temple. Can a frontal shootout end up hitting someone in the temple?

网易广东省佛山市网友:

I’m reminded of that day Little Yang was tried, how outside the court, there were dozens of people shouting slogans, and innumerable people online supporting him. That scene, as if he was a hero of the people.

byh1227 [网易江苏省南京市网友]:

He had a mobile phone on him, did he use it normally? Did he need to recharge it? Could he have recharged in a mountain cave?
The battery life of his mobile phone is too incredible, what brand is it? I’m going to go buy one too!!!
Those in support, please ding~~~

网易河南省郑州市金水区网友:

If only he hadn’t gotten a cold… [cold medicine was found amongst the items he was carrying.]

网易福建省手机网友:

I just want to know, where he has been living and what he has been doing these past few days?>

What do you think? Is there cause for suspicion?
