What can't China do?

A nation of billions versus a state of millions. Thousands if you count actually coherent, intelligent people.

If we tallied killings by public servants, where would we be?
 
2017-04-14 01:01:37 AM  
This is kindof the downside when you have a system designed to inherently value the group over the individual...
 
2017-04-14 01:02:22 AM  
Why? Once they kill someone they will just want to kill again in an hour.

Yes, China executes more people than the rest of the worlds nations, combined.
China also burns more coal than the rest of the worlds nations, combined, all of it unfiltered.
Granted they are ~1.4 Billion of the 7.5 Billion on the planet.  Still some pretty high numbers.

Come the fark on Texas! If only the EU hadn't banned their legally required drug killing drugs. Let's get that crown again. USA USA! Let's legalize those again so we can really clear out that backlog of death row inmates

Or, in a sounder mind, perhaps we should reevaluate our death lust? Nah fark em. USA USA

They even have a party execution van

China's full of human rights violations?  And mercury?  I am flabbergasted! But they still make some good value lead filled baby pacifiers.  Trusted business partner status vetted.

Yah, that's a great list of countries for us to be on.

Dammit, Texas. I thought you were tough. But I guess you can't hand with the big boys any more.

Hand? Hang!

What more do you want? We got Rick Perry as head of...what was that department he would eliminate as president? Ken Paxton as AG hunting down financial frauds (implicated in a securities finance fraud). We gave you George Bush, one and two. I really don't think we can fark this up more than Davey Crockett moving to the Alamo

You're on Fark.  The United States is far more Evil than any other nation here.
 
2017-04-14 01:38:41 AM  
Why is this news.  China is the best at stealing ideas/technology and making it cheaper.  Then selling it back to us.
 
2017-04-14 01:42:45 AM  
Other things China leads the world in:
Number of Steamed dumplings eaten.
Number of people named Chang.
Number of miles of big ass wall.
Number of missing cats.
Number of Tiananmen square massacres.
Number of Chairmen whose name rhymes with "meow".
Number of iPhone made in sweatshops.
Number of absolutely farking flagrant copyright violations.

You can't win them all.

Peter von Nostrand: A nation of billions versus a state of millions. Thousands if you count actually coherent, intelligent people.


FTA: China conducted about 2,000 executions last year

China Population (2013): 1.357 billion

2K/1.357B = 0.00014738393% of the population

Texas Population (2014): 26.96 million

Texas Executions (2014): 35

35 / 26.96M = 0.00012982195%

Texas: 0.00012982195%
China: 0.00014738393%

That's fairly close, I'd say, with China still edging out Texas.

Texas better step up their game. Has anyone heard from Tony Romo lately?

... no state that uses lethal injection uses foreign sources for the drugs, to my knowledge.  They don't care what the EU does or doesn't ban.

Also, there's no real moral issue with the death penalty in itself where the problem isn't 100% identical for life sentences in prison and prison terms longer than expected remaining lifespan.  If anything, from most philosophical perspectives taking away someone's entire life to torture them for essentially no reason for its remainder is a bit worse than just offing them.  The reason we should drop some of the more extreme prison sentences and the death penalty is a practical question regarding the costs and time investment required for due process, not that a government killing people is in itself somehow immoral.

So, y'know... fark off, ya ignorant douche.

No. Texas doesn't.

Texas has nothing to do with Trump afaik (except voting for him) so they have that going for them, which is nice.

Except for that whole "wrongful conviction" thing, and execution being final, no chance of compensation or a life of meaning when your conviction is finally quashed on appeal. And that whole executing people of sub-normal mental faculties thing. And "why is it wrong for an individual to engage in premeditated killing but OK for the state?" Yeah, not immoral at all.
 
2017-04-14 04:38:55 AM  
vows harder?

China makes mad money off their executions though. Bullet to the back of the head, charge the family for the bullet, then sell off the organs and skeleton. Texas doesn't make squat on it, practically communist in comparison.

No big deal: the family can just sell off the serial killer's hook hand if they can get it out of the door handle of their car.

A non-state-sponsored execution is just a murder.
 
2017-04-14 08:34:17 AM  
but you gotta admit both Texas and China are losing style points to the Norks.
 
2017-04-14 10:20:26 AM  
Is this the example Trump was referring to when he said America doesn't win anymore?
 
2017-04-14 10:34:04 AM  
Hell, Texas can't even keep up with Arkansas.
 
2017-04-14 11:00:43 AM  
That is true if you don't count all the people blown up in US Airstrikes on countries we didn't declare war on.
