China Has Mass Sentencing of Islamist Separatists in Football Stadium

Is this something?

a spectacle designed to show their resolve against terrorism, Chinese authorities held a public sentencing in a football stadium in the northwestern Xinjiang region of 55 people convicted of violent crimes.

More than 7,000 people filled the stadium stands in Yili prefecture during Tuesday’s sentencing and videos were distributed by police Wednesday to Chinese media. It was an unusually public display in a country where court proceedings are normally closed to the public.

I dunno, it just seems so ..... Communist. The kind of thing you might have seen Mao, Stalin, or Castro do. Like a deleted scene out of Red Dawn (original version, the other version doesn't exist in my mind). But I guess we need to be reminded from time to time that the Chinese really are still Communist. And that much of what passes for "China" is really occupied territory, and not a nation-state. This is what you do to let the locals know who is in charge.

1 Gotta show the Han that something is being done about the Weegur. "Uighurs" rather. Thanks google. Only 55 indicates some restraint on the government's part, but i think the public spectacle is suppose to prevent a general riot and pogrom against the pesky knife-crazy muzzlemen.

Ugly, but i hope it's effective.

3 Great deterrent, time to ramp up the death penalty here in the U.S., would save lots of tax payer monies and reduce prison population.
