Text in image 1: Fu Zhenghua, former Minister of Justice in China, on Thursday was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve for taking bribes worth more than 117 million yuan ($16.76 million).

Text in image 2: For people that don’t know, the reprieve part basically means that if they find some strong additional charges the death penalty will happen(execution), but if they do not find any in the set period. Instead he will have a normal life sentence.

Wow that’s harsh. If he were convicted in America, he’d be punished with a consultancy job in the corporate sector and a book deal with a speaking tour. And since America is the paragon of freedom and democracy in the world and champion of the rules-based world order, that’s obviously a much more effective way to protect the people from the predations of the corrupt.

This reminds me of this discussion about the death penalty. In terms of what was said, I think that this approach is an interesting compromise. I suspect, as others have said, this sort of model is requisite prior to communism being achieved.


Also, as someone new to posting on lemmygrad, should we transcribe text in images (in the comments or post) so that it can be found in searches and be more accessible for various other reasons?

You don’t have to, but if it’s something that doesn’t need the visuals to be understood, it’s certainly helpful

For all intents and purposes, death with 2 years probation is just a life sentence. It has similar effect to jail terms over 100 years in the US, the received punishment is the same, but it makes a statement that your crime was objectively worse than just life imprisonment. It also gives a chance to execute those who are unrehabilitatable (you do more bad stuff during the 2 year wait period), who we really shouldn’t waste hard earned tax money on.

Fucked around. Found out.
