Not playing

URUMQI, China — China on Tuesday executed a British man convicted of drug smuggling in its first execution of a European citizen in half a century, drawing a strong condemnation from Britain's prime minister.

Britain's Foreign Office confirmed the execution of Akmal Shaikh, whose relatives say was mentally unstable and was unwittingly lured into the crime.

It is clear the Chinese Government has hit on a policy that will eliminate recidivism in narcotics trafficking.  Perhaps they are on to something here.

The rest here.
