Chinese Official Tortured

As humans being, we have to admit that we are not living in an equal world. Some people have a lot more power and abuse of it and this is exactly what the government of China did to one of its party official Yu Qiyi. I was interested in this article because I just can’t believe this terrible story and how people have surplus of power.
The Chinese official died after 30 days of internal detention because the government wanted him to confess some wrongdoing. After this month of torture and pain, he was brought to hospital and died a few hours later. He had inhaled a fluid that caused a malfunction in his lungs (probably due to the feigned drowning he had undergone). The Beijing Times said there might be some of his acquaintance that might have suffered of the tortures.
When I read this text I couldn’t believe my eyes. How could something like this still happen? Torture shouldn’t be used nowadays: we’re not in the Second World War! These are Barbary techniques. The most astonishing fact of the incident is that the guy who died, Mr Qiyi, was a member of the communist party and by the fact was in agreement with the current government who killed him. I think everybody should have a fair trial and a chance to survive if they are right.
