Push to end pub­lic sham­ing of sus­pects

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

BEI­JING — The Chi­nese govern­ment called for an end to the pub­lic sham­ing of crim­i­nal sus­pects, a time­honored cud­gel of Chi­nese law en­force­ment that has in­creas­ingly rat­tled the pub­lic. The Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity has or­dered the po­lice to stop parad­ing sus­pects in pub­lic and has called on lo­cal de­part­ments to en­force laws in a “ra­tio­nal, calm and civ­i­lized man­ner,” ac­cord­ing to the state-run me­dia.
