"Me today, you tomorrow"

I don't know what the problem is here -- if you're in favour of extraditing Marc Emery. The Chinese have decided that Falun Gong is not to be tolerated, and have passed laws to that effect.

To paraphrase the Globe and Mail, "if she'd been a bloodthirsty Islamist plotting suicide bombings, you'd all be screaming to get her out of the country."

Now, I have grounds to say that this is an injustice, but those who want to destroy Marc Emery for witchcraft, or conspiracy to hold a black mass, or whatever it is they're charging him with, should be happy this "criminal" is going to "get what's coming to her".

It would be worth pointing out that deportation (addressing illegal presence in a country) has nothing to do with extradition (addressing crimes committed, and delivery to authorities).
