A case that rattles China
Analysis by Zhaoyin Feng, BBC Chinese Service

After Yingying Zhang went missing two years ago, many Chinese people were rattled. This is not because Zhang was a well-known celebrity. She was quite the opposite: an average Chinese student in the US, who was new to this country and trusted a stranger.

Some 370,000 Chinese students are currently studying in the US. Many of their families and friends gasped for breath when they learned about the gruesome details of Zhang's murder revealed in court, reported at length by a wide range of Chinese media. Some cited Zhang's case to alert others to be vigilant during their stay in the US.

One of the most astonishing facts of the case, to the Chinese audience, is that Brendt Christensen admitted the murder, but he may not get a death penalty, as he argues that he suffered from mental illness. In China, "a life for a life" is ingrained among the people.

"Being sick grants you the rights to hurt others?" A Chinese netizen commented. Another wrote that if Christensen does not get a death sentence, "I'd lose all my hopes for the American judicial system."

Nobody in China ever murdered anyone before rofl. What is special about this random murder case? I mean besides Chinese media (i.e. government) having an opportunity to feign outrage over American? The dude was convicted. Case closed.

Civilized countries does not execute mentally ill persons.

We don’t have the death penalty in Sweden, but if the doctors find that you are mentally ill then the court will sentence you to treatment and not to jail.

I'm a bit confused by this myself. Was the title meant to be a play on Christian or something?

Since the meaning of this post is unclear I'll just assume that IBTY wants to apply the death penalty against this murderer.
