According to the news here, 6 men tried to hi-jack a chinese flight, using parts from a pair of crutches. The warning is 2 of the 6 men were beaten to death by the passengers of the plane. I am not a fan of the death penalty but can't really feel any pity for those men.
What do you think should have happened to them? I think chinese law will mean the remaining 4 will be executed but I couldn't couldn't be sure of that fact. I don't think they should receive the death penalty but that is my own beliefs. Though I am a firm believer that a persons home is his castle and if someone breaks into your house you should be able to deal with them how you see fit, and this is sort of that case the people on the plane felt their house was threatened so they reacted some will say an over reaction but if it was me I wouldn't charge them if all the facts turned out to be true.
Of course it all could be a beat-up by the news papers and I am only going by the facts of what the news reported.
