The suspects tortured the victim to extort money from his family. They gave food to the victim, but they charged him 300 USD for one meal and 100 USD for one bottle of water. The police are investigating the case.

Do the torturers get sent back to China?
I have seen no reports of trials or sentences.
The prisons must be getting even nastier if they are all getting locked up here.

Imagine 10 years in a cell will some of these guys - you could never trust enough to go to sleep.

They will be sent back to China on the regular Con Air flights.

After that it's best not to inquire.

Even having a friend on your Weibo who has a negative credit score can get you the same.

In short - unfriend - delete and pray they don't come for you for liking one of their posts years ago.

It's the most terrifying social conditioning state surveillance in the history of mankind.

Think Stazi, Stalin on steroids

They have some deal where they all get sent back to China. A government spokesman said they don't have the space or resources to try them here, considering about 1000 were arrested in the past year.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I guess they get the victim's family on the phone and then get to work with their torture techniques. Must be terrible to get a phone call and have to listen to a family member screaming in pain.

[Mod edit: no racial slurs pls]

Sadly they are here in numbers. Gambling debt again likely to be behind most of these crimes.

There is enough local trash, no need to import.
