I thought this deserved its own topic.

Apparently, China has set up many of these “police stations” in several foreign countries.

The original story is from the New York Post, a paper with a history of sensationalism and writing right-wing BS.

The story is based on a report from a small human rights organization called Safeguard Defenders

The only other references that I could see were other right-wing media outlets picking it up. 

Why is that?  I think it is likely because there’s not much meat behind the story…. it comes from a dubious source with zero specifics as to what these alleged police stations are doing.

Could it be true?  Of course!  China isn’t a fair or reasonable actor. 

Should you believe it?  Probably not yet, in my opinion.

I would tend to agree if it wasn't the G&M reporting it as well. It will make good election fodder and the government better have some believable answers.

Accurate or not, waldo doesn't seem to have a problem with the idea.
