    This isn't really news. I lived in China over 10 years ago and this was going on then. Up until very recently, there was no legal right to representation and there is still no presumption of innocence. China's legal code has not kept pace with the rest of the changes in the country, but there is a lot of pressure on the Chinese government to fix it. The one thing that motivates the Communist Party is economic growth, because the booming economy is what keeps them in power. A growing chorus of foreign investors has been raising hell over China's arbitrary and unjust legal system, because those same investors have gotten screwed out of millions over the years and they are getting tired of it. Its only a matter of time before enlightened self-interest on the part of the ruling party tips the balance in favor of reform. Until then, I'm just glad I'm not a citizen of China.
