commented on Council May Chew Out Exhibit of People Jerky
There's also this little bit warning posted at the entrance of the exhibit:
"This exhibit displays human remains of Chinese citizens or residents which were originally received by the Chinese Bureau of Police. The Chinese Bureau of Police may receive bodies from Chinese prisons. Premier cannot independently verify that the human remains you are viewing are not those of persons who were incarcerated in Chinese prisons."
Some of the bodies are rumored to be those of executed Chinese political prisoners.
