Cop Sentenced to Death for Fatally Shooting Pregnant Mother and Her Unborn Child
Guangxi Zhuang, CHINA — It’s actually happening.
An officer is being sentenced to death for shooting a pregnant woman and her unborn child to death, and injuring her husband.
The husband and wife were enjoying their dinner at a restaurant they owned when a cop came in, began harassing them, and eventually opened fire on them.
In addition to being sentenced to death, the cop was ordered to pay the equivalent of $12,000, out of his own pocket, as compensation to the victim’s family.
The husband suffered injuries to his right shoulder.
His unborn child died with the mother in her womb.
A people’s court has made the decision to sentence the cop to death for killing the woman and her baby.
Does it seem unreal to you that a cop is being punished?
If so, it’s probably because you live in the United States.
In the United States, cops are almost never punished for killing people. Typically they are granted time-off with pay.
In the United States they’re usually found “not guilty” even when they’re caught on video beating innocent Americans to death.
They get away with it even when they’re caught on video Tasing handcuffed girls to death.
Moreover, in the United States, when victims are compensated with money for crimes committed by cops, it’s stolen from your paycheck — the taxpayer — not the cops individually.
So why would a killer cop now be put to death?
It’s because we’re talking about China, not the United States.
The officer, Hu Ping, killed the woman in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
He is paying 73,324 yuan to the victim’s family before he is extinguished in accordance with the decision of Chinese citizens.
If a cop did this in America, do you think he’d be punished for it?
Even if he were punished, do you think he’d be put to death? What are your thoughts on capital punishment?
Make no mistake about it: like any people living under the rule of a government, the Chinese have their own horrors of police brutality, and we certainly don’t admire anything about the Chinese government.
In this particular case, however, many think they’re doing far more than Americans would do in dealing with a killer in uniform.
