Cop killer gets justice; Becomes hero

On July 1 of this year, just before the Olympics in China, a man went on a revenge rampage and killed six police officers and wounded four others - with a knife.

In the US, African Americans are the folks most likely to be harassed, arrested, detained, humiliated, beat, tortured, and murdered by police - so they're the ones who are usually not crying when a cop gets murdered. But in China, most people are victims of the police, so they're on the side of the cop-killer, Yang Jia.

I can't seem to find an explanation as to how a lone guy with a knife managed to murder six armed policemen and injure four others.

Police should be subject to the rule of law, and even moreso to the rule of justice, because laws are arbitrary, and stacked against regular citizens. If Chinese police continue to be above the law and reproach, then we can expect more mass murder revenge killings.

What did they do to him while he was in custody?

...i wasn't kidding.
