(Yahoo)   China's top anti-corruption official tells his investigators to use "shock and awe" on their targets, and since this is China, he probably means that literally, and they can expect to be issued jumper cables and genital clamps shortly   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 31

IMHO government corruption and abuse of public trust is a far more serious crime than it's currently billed.

So more torture of lowly peons for weeks until they either die from abuse or "extract" a confession that gets them sentenced to death?

Federal Prosecutor Patrick  Fitzgerlad, he, of "Plamegate" fame, made his bones taking down the Gambino Crime Family and prosecutors the First NY Trade Center bombers.  Nonetheless he always personally considered public corruption ot be the most serious crime the federal government prosecuted.   That's why Bush named him US attorney for the ND of Illinois; he was intedned as a guided missile aimed square at Mayor Daley.  What Bush and Co failed to take into account was that Fitz was a straight shooter, and that Ill poltics was Incredibly corrupt no matter which party was involved.   That's why when he left the job, the scalps on his wall included not only several top aides to Daley, but acorrupt Police captain who was supported by most  prominent GOP polticians in the state, and a sitting Governor from each party, and of course, Scooter Libby the VP's chief of Staff

In fact, the phrase "Shock and Awe" is just a westernization of "Sho-Kanau", which is Mongolian for "The Good Land".

Chinese legal system doesn;t really work that way.  No matter what you did, if you  make a prompt confession, express public remorse and praise the implacable and utterly just legal system for catching you and making you pay for your crimes, then you can expect a very light sentence.

It is only the poor idiots who dare plead not guilty, and thereby suggest the state is falliable or unjust that face the true wrath of their legal system

The chief virtue of their legal system is the preservation of harmony, not doing justice or vindication of an individual's rights.   In fact  whereas in the west the lone dissenter standing against the mighty establishment to exercise his rights is seen a s a hero, in China such a person is the worst kind of criminal in most people's eyes. Even if he really has a case and is being treated unfairly, he is dirupting society, and is therefore in the wrong.

I've seen first hand how Chinese exchange law students struggle with basic tenets of US Constitutional law, particularly the Bill of Rights and Due process

That's inspirational. In China though, all this really means is that the corruption investigators get to extort more graft.

So they are essentially asking the currupt officials to root out the corrupt officials.
Can't wait to see how that works out.

My prediction is that there will be a slew of people made out to be "corrupt", and paraded around so everyone can see how effectively the corruption is being taken care of.  They will then be shuffled off to labor camps, or shot, or at least in some manner never heard from again.  Then business will continue as usual.

I'm so proud to be an American.

We have a representative of a totalitarian state quoting an American war criminal, Dick Cheney.

People used to quote MLK, RFK, JFK. Now they quote some SOB.

More than likely your exchange students, being law students and all, come from governmental families. For THESE families what you say is true. For most of the common chinese citizens they aren't nearly as interested in "harmony". Thats not to say they are ambivalent to the concept, its just not nearly as strong in them as you portray it. I had this explained to me by a good friend who came from a wealthy family but spent so much time away from China she was becoming westernized (did her undergrad and grad school in Ireland, which by the way made for a hilarious accent. We nickanmed her McChink). She said that many of the grad students in law, engineering, etc. come from well connected families. She said you will often see that at least one parents is a mid-level governmetn official.

A very good point, especially since my law school was the exchange school for the Univeristy of Beijing, so we were very likely dealing mostly with the children of the very elite  (I did note our exchange students were about 90% Han as well)

OK.

They should probably have let the police handle the torturing, since they're experienced in it.

I think it should be the people giveing the bribes who should be drawn and quartered on the capital grounds. Get rid of 20-30 CEOs for giveing bribes and the county will be a much better place
