Mur­der case throws up moral­ity ques­tions

Global Times - - View Point -

Edi­tor’s Note:

The death of Jiang Ge, a 24-yearold Chi­nese post­grad­u­ate stabbed by the ex-boyfriend of her room­mate Liu Xin last year in Ja­pan, has again trig­gered an up­roar in China af­ter a Chi­nese me­dia out­let or­ga­nized a meet­ing be­tween Liu and the vic­tim’s mother. While a pub­lic pe­ti­tion called for death penalty to the sus­pect ahead of his trial next month, Liu – who re­port­edly kept the door shut dis­re­gard­ing Jiang’s cries for help dur­ing the tragedy, ig­nored Jiang’s mother’s plea for ev­i­dence and flaunted her cushy life on so­cial me­dia – is in the glare. Is Liu the right tar­get at the mo­ment? The Global Times has col­lected three views on the is­sue.
