Well, We Are Talking About China

(via Drudge)

According to the Daily Mail, officials in Beijing plan on 'hospitalising' the mentally ill during the Olympics in '08, among other efforts to sanitize Beijing for foreign consumption.

This is China, not exactly a human rights paradise, so any shock over this should be only the Captain Renault from Casablanca variety.

(he's shocked, shocked that Chinese officials might contemplate violating their citizen's civil rights)

I'm a little shocked that they won't be going around and just euthanizing their 'problem', that sounds more like what the leaders of China are still capable of, despite all their great 'reforms'.
