In China, This is Called a "Blogging Accident"

Public protests against government corruption and abuse of power inside China are becoming more common. The Chinese government does not like anyone to make this state of public dissatisfaction known to the outside world.
A Chinese blogger has been beaten to death by Government authorities for the crime of attempting to record a protest on his mobile phone.

When Wei was present at some sort of confrontation or protest by local villages against municipal authorities when more than 50 municipal inspectors turned on him, attacking him for five minutes.

According to CNN, the killing has sparked outrage in China, “with thousands expressing outrage in Chinese Internet chat rooms, often the only outlet for public criticism of the government.”

I wonder if they were able to salvage his organs?
