In China, Communit Party Membership is As Vaulable as Your Life

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 23, 2011

The following is a story about China and speaks volumes about their culture. First off some Chinese student ran into a bicyclist. As she lie on the ground in pain, the driver of the vehicle, instead of helping her, viciously stabbed her 8 times, killing her. His rationale for the brutal murder was that the victim would get his license number and he’d have to giver her cash.
The telling part is that this guy is sentenced to death, by all means this, depending on your point of view is a pretty drastic thing. But what is interesting and telling about the cult that is Communism is that the guy “death penalty, the court also revoked Yao’s political rights for life and ordered,,,”…Yeah, so he gets the needle and oh yeah you cant be a communist anymore. WTF is that?
Another oh yeah, the woman’s life was only worth U$6000 or so that is what he must pay.

xinhuanet excerpt:
“While returning home on October 20th last year, he ran into cyclist Zhang Miao. Yao got out of the car and found the victim trying to memorize his license plate number. Then he took a knife and repeatedly stabbed the woman. He later explained that “fear over endless requests for compensation” pushed him into the crime. But that is far from enough to excuse his behavior.

As well as the death penalty, the court also revoked Yao’s political rights for life and ordered Yao to pay 45 thousand yuan in compensation to Zhang’s family.”
