To me, it reiterates how you just don't fuck with the Princeling faction within the CCP (the children/grandchildren of many of the CCP's first generation). These are nasty fuckers with a sense of entitlement that will do anything to maintain their influence.
Even if he was involved in graft, I can't see how he deserved what he got.
He didn't deserve it, but surely he must have known that when you commit adultery and ingratiate yourself to princeling populists with decidedly leftist politics (perfect description of Bo and Gu) that were challenging the status quo people within the party, things may take a turn for the worse. I agree with some CCP officials that say "Bo Xilai was trying to open up the wounds of the cultural revolution again" with his poverty campaigns while mayor. Exacerbating class divisions big time.
If Gu did kill him, I hope she gets a bullet in the back of the head for taking away two children's daddy.
She's kind of hot in a MILFY way. I hope they spare her and send her to a re-education camp in the provinces that makes sex toys with cheap prison labour!
