As he had no licence, will he have to pass a test before they carry out the sentence? That would teach him not to do it again!


Yep no licence would make me think this person is somewhat of a menace, and worse than your normal drink driver. No licence, presumably no insurance.

However death for an non violent crime without malice seems unfair. However him going scot free seems daft either. Whilst our justice system is too weak, theirs is too tough (all IMHO of course).

Could they not just cut off his right foot to stop him driving and give him trouble for the rest of his days....

Far cheaper to execute then you don't have the hastle/cost of a lifetime of crutches or wheelchairs etc. Life is very cheap in China.

He'd then probably just get a car through the motability scheme. :rolleyes:

One way of keeping the numbers of road users down.

I doubt they have that, over here that sounds just par for the course however :rolleyes::shock:

F*** it, the bullet seems the best option by general consensus on here then.

I believe the practice in China is to charge the next of kin for the ammunition, so it should be nearly "cost neutral", perhaps better, once the TV rights are considered?

Don't do it in Spain either - now it's ZERO TOLERENCE. Especially targeted are Hire Cars. Instant fine, payable on the spot or taken to nearest ATM.

Sounds like the fuzz are getting out of control over there. What happened to civil unrest if the law/government gets too heavy handed.
