Editor's note: The following article was translated and edited from a recent article published in The Beijing News, detailing the sentencing of 71 people recently arrested during a call-girl ring bust east of the Olympic Stadium in Beijing. While this may not normally merit attention in Chinese media, what is striking about this particular case is number of people that were arrested, and the unusual severity of the sentencing this time around, given the nature of their crimes committed, in particular, the many people who worked as "card issuers" for the ring the people going door-to-door sticking a small card with the picture of a "sexy lady" and a phone number into the cracks of the door frame. Is Beijing stepping-up its crackdown on seedy activities, or were these people just the unfortunate recipients of "being made an example of"?
