China teen deemed hero after killing official

Yahoo news article here
"BEIJING – When Li Shiming was stabbed through the heart by a hired assassin, few of his fellow villagers mourned the local Communist Party official many say made their lives hell by seizing land, extorting money and bullying people for years.

Instead, villagers in the northern town of Xiashuixi have made Li's teenage killer something of a local hero. More than 20,000 people from the coal-mining area petitioned a court for a lenient sentence.

"I didn't feel surprised at all when I heard Li Shiming was killed, because people wanted to kill him a long time ago," said villager Xin Xiaomei, who says her husband was harassed for years by Li after the two men had a personal dispute. "I wanted to kill Li myself, but I was too weak."..."

Honestly this news just seems amazing...
It kinda seems like some guy just killed the head of the mafia, and they are bringing HIM in for execution?
It's rather sad though that Zhang Xuping's court case is ignoring the 20,000+ people who are backing him up as not a murderer.
But it's also strange that the public is trying to give off an impression of a murderer being a hero.
What side do you go more with?
That is weird, a murderer, A HERO? That's just wrong. That person is an assassin! How can he be a hero?!

Some people in power actually deserve to be killed. And by that, especially communists.
Who actually wants to live in communism? These people are bullies with too much power and money for their own good. Not politicians.
Most of us have the privilege of living in a democratic country. But imagine if the person took advantage of us all, and abused his power on us?

Here's an analogy: If Link did not kill Ganon, how do you think Hyrule would end up?


I'm not going to lie. In reality, murder, while not accepted by law, is something accepted in our ethics and morality under certain conditions.

I think he should be celebre\ated as a hero.He did justice rather than an injustice.

It's a shame. He has helped his community, he will probably be executed, and life will go on. The dead official will be replaced, and with some luck, be a nice guy. But, they may get a worse official.
It's the luck of the draw.
I don't understand why people would think this was just some murder. I mean, look, he deserved it, so it's justified. Look at the video games we play, killing the evil tyrant, it's the same thing!
Working on stuff again 👀

Because they guy who he killed was a bastard hated by everyone.

At least for me, he's a hero.
China is a dictatorship, that happens if your country's leaders are commies.

I find it hard to justify murder, but I do agree that it was inevitably deserved. Corruption is on par with murder, so they rule each other out.
Er, I didn't mean justified as in it was perfectly and unquestionably moral to kill another human being, I meant he had valid reasons for doing so.

Of course, you have to think of it in another light too:

If they don't arrest him for murder, and he walks free, it makes the crime seem completely justified, and good.
Now then other people would go out and kill high up governmental leaders they think are evil because they believe it is justified, and also good, because of the other case which was tried. Also, because of the other case, it would also consider it legal.
How could you throw a man in jail if he points to another case which had a man walk free, and contained all the same details as his case?

A line has to be drawn, or else people will keep coming closer and closer to that "invisible boundary"

Exactly, considering that the murder was entirely out of reason and the need for peace.

That's why we have a legal system in society, but that still doesn't mean it works 100%.
