I didn't say, nor do I have any way of knowing what percentage of
China's citizens are 100% happy with the government. I did imply if
their government crossed them, a billion... Even 10% of a billion, is a

As I understand it there are bad cops and complicit silent ones.
My bad... Should have used the term primary-suspect-in-murder cop (as

If you read the piece you'll note they also tore his accomplice limb
from limb and stuffed hi in their squad car too, before torching it.
