China shoots itself in the foot

By Katherine Voukidis for the Hindustan Times

Late yesterday afternoon, China continued to reiterate its support of the death penalty, acknowledging it was the most extreme punishment to which it would subject its citizens.

However, the Delegate for China later agreed that he would rather die by lethal injection, as a form of capital punishment, then be subject to life imprisonment.

If the delegate for China would rather die than lose his freedom, why should it be believed that the death penalty is the most effective, final sentence to which a criminal should be punished?
