Akmal Shaikh

I am appalled by drug smugglers, and in general I think that they deserve what they get if they are caught. The case of Akmal Shaikh is clearly quite different; he was a man with a major psychiatric illness who plainly had no idea what he was doing, and he was executed by the Chinese government.

The Chinese clearly have their own rules, and will not listen to our feeble protests. So if you really take objection to what they have done, perhaps you could stop buying cheap (and often second rate) Chinese goods, which you probably didn't need inthe first place; now that is something the Chinese would notice.
