SOMETIMES GOOD FRIDAY PRECEDES PALM SUNDAY!
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.
