W en Quiang, for­mer po­lice chief of Chongquing, was once a great hero—un­til he was ar­rested and ex­e­cuted. He had risen through the ranks of the po­lice force in his mu­nic­i­pal­ity, due to his out­stand­ing per­for­mance. The most glo­ri­ous mo­ment in his en­tire ca­reer came on Septem­ber 19, 2000 when, as the deputy po­lice chief of Chongquing, Quiang cap­tured Zhang Jun, the most wanted man in China. Jun was sus­pected of mur­der­ing 28 peo­ple over seven years. Nine years later Quiang was him­self ar­rested and ex­e­cuted for crimes in­clud­ing rape and be­ing un­able to ac­count for as­sets worth mil­lions of dol­lars. Pic­tured, Cuth­bert Phillips re­cently re­ceiv­ing the Sil­ver Medal from the gov­er­nor gen­eral, “for em­i­nent ser­vice of na­tional im­por­tance to Saint Lu­cia.”
