Are you kidding in this crappy state we had a guy climb on top of a building, cut through the roof, fall through the hole he cut, sued and won. The liberals here make me want to puke. At least in Texas criminals get what they deserve.

Ah...the land of fruits and nuts. Had the owner been there defending his property, he may have been able to a least beat the guy up. Surely, the case wouldn't go before a jury, after all the owner would be defending his place. But then, that's California....no telling what would happen.

Stripping away human rights with deadly force for petty theft is un acceptable and thats why their are laws against it.
you an absolute idiot....... commited is spelled "committed"......un is "an" you can not be taken seriously with that many misspelled words plus the fact that your numbers are skewed...

In china spitting gum on a sidewalk is considered a criminal offense, walking by a political poster without acknowledging it is consider a serious offense. Walking within 20 feet of a military personal is considered a executable offense. There are so many more.....

Their crime rate is high as there are rules for everything...but in all reality their crime rate is much lower than most major world powers.

In all seriousness you ought to read a little or at least do some research before you allow to your fingers to even move across a keyboard.

London - At least 470 people were executed in China last year, making it the highest overall figure for any single country, followed by Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and the US, according to Amnesty International's report on Death Sentences and Executions in 2007. The report, published in London, brands China as the "world's top executioner," and says that the true figure for executions in China "is undoubtedly much higher."

"As the world and Olympic guests are left guessing, only the Chinese authorities know exactly how many people have been killed with state authorization," the Amnesty report said




The US executed 42 people in the same time period

Trading will never be the same.BEIJING, Jan 30 (Reuters) - China reported 4.75 million criminal cases in 2007, roughly the same as 2006, but serious crimes such as detonating explosions and homicides dropped considerably, a senior police official said on Wednesday.

"In general, we are still in a period of a high crime rate, but it has been stable," Wu Heping, spokesman for the Ministry of Public Security, told a news conference.

The number of crimes in China had jumped from over 2 million in the 1990s to more than 4 million around 2000, he said.

The 3.7 million theft, robbery and burglary cases across the country, which dropped only 0.5 percent from 2006, accounted for the bulk of the crimes, Wu said.

Street robbery and burglary have been top public safety concerns for many cities in recent years as breakneck economic growth brings a widening wealth gap.

There were 586 crimes involving explosives and 6,011 arsons in 2007, down 25.2 and 11.3 percent respectively. Homicides were 10.3 percent fewer than in 2006.

A total of 84,000 economic crimes such as tax evasion, fraud and illegal fund raising were reported last year, a 4.2 percent rise from 2006, Wu said, adding some 59,000 crime gangs were cracked.

In 2007, 1,418 people died in 158,000 fires in China, down 11.6 percent from 2006, Wu added.

Chinese police were collecting "all kinds of information" and were paying attention to the "prevention of terrorist attacks" to ensure security for the Olympic Games Beijing hosts in August, Wu said. (Reporting by Guo Shipeng; Editing by Nick Macfie and Katie Nguyen)
