What i'm saying is that China simply kills you for offenses we'd deem as minor. I'm sure that has to be factored into prison population calculations. Our population would be a lot less too if we'd just kill all the murderers, rapists, violent offenders. Heck...drug dealers over there are put to death quite regularly too.
They execute around 78 people per 100 million population, officially, but Amnesty International estimates that the total year amount is really in 5-7000 range rather than the 1500 or so the official numbers state. Of course the real total is a "state secret" but the estimation can be assumed to be reasonably accurate. Regardless, these numbers are spit in a bucket to the incarceration total....IE your argument is bullshit.
