Police Killer In China Gets Death Penalty

From AP:

A young man who drew a surprising amount of sympathy in China after being convicted of killing six policemen in will get the after losing his final appeal Monday.

Dozens of angry Chinese massed outside the Shanghai Higher People’s Court during the verdict. “He’s a hero,” one woman shouted. “The Chinese people have no right to speak,” one man declared.

Widespread disgust in China over police behavior led to a wave of support for Yang Jia, who was accused of forcing his way into a Shanghai police station July 1 and killing six officers in a stabbing spree. Such is rare in China.
