You gotta read through the entire thread. I already played the 'US criminal justice system has problem, too' card. MJD made it plain that his is not from the US. I believe he is Canadian, and their criminal justice system does not have most of these problems.

No innocent person has been put to death here in Sweden, because we have no death penalty. This, however, does not stop me from finding fault with the Chinese government.

"China is executing about 8,000 people every year, almost 20 times as many as the rest of the world combined, a new academic estimate suggests."

No, I have no faith in their legal system.

Why, because you do not personally agree with execution as penal code or because you do not trust their legal system in making the right verdict as to whether someone is guilty?

Because a country has a strict penal code I do not think one should assume their legal system is unreliable.. Besides, who says this piece of academic research, I mean guesstimate, is reliable?

Maybe the alleged 8,000 are all murderers and rapists convicted fairly...who knows. What we do know is that Sun has been banned, so maybe that has given you a teeny bit of faith in their athletic adminstration, no?

As mentioned in passing on the IAAF website, Sun Yingjie's ban ends today.

IF she comes back I want her to run with her arms in the "I surrender" position for a year! :twisted:

Wouldn't that make you a super super super genius...I am losing track of all the supers you have in front of your name. :roll:

after reading through this thread...I am curious why GH has deemed this as inappropriate?

To be sure, I understand that TFN can be held liable for slander. And, especially in cases like Flojo where she can't defend herself--it just isn't fair.

And, in the 1980's--I subscribed to the magazine--got two editions--then, I somehow got Esquire for the remainder of the year. Oh well, no on is perfect.

I am just happy we all have a place to comment on our sport that we love.

Thank you TFN
