China Executes Two In Tainted Milk Scandal

Maybe we should take a lesson from the Chinese...

Quote:
BEIJING - China executed a dairy farmer and a milk salesman Tuesday, the only two people sentenced to death in a scheme to water down infant formula with an industrial chemical that left at least six children dead and sickened more than 300,000.The contamination of the milk powder with melamine was one of China's worst-ever food safety scandals, and Beijing is eager to prove it has responded swiftly and comprehensively to eliminate the problem one in a string of food safety scares. When the scandal came to light in September 2008, there were accusations that the government had prevented the news from breaking until after the Olympic Games in Beijing ended.
Dairy farmers and the middlemen involved in the scam conspired to increase profits by watering down milk and milk products before they sold it, fooling inspectors testing for protein content by adding melamine used in the manufacture of plastics and fertilizers. Melamine, like protein, is high in nitrogen.

Cost of burying one dead crook, negotioble; a single bullet to the back of the head, 25 Yuan and your family is billed for the cost of the bullet; an enduring lesson for other miscreants; priceless!

Let the punishment fit the crime, give them a cup of melamine.

Bernie Madoff, lock him in a cell with no food and no heat until he dies.
