The story of an 18-year-old man wrongfully convicted and executed for murder was front page news, and the subject of an editorial in the China Daily -- a government publication -- on Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014. The editorial was unusual in that it bluntly acknowledged that use of torture by police was far from rare in China.
