Death is in surplus of guilt 死有余辜

April 21, 2020

Death would not be a sufficient punishment for somebody's crimes

 

 

 

  

 

Pinyin:  sǐ yǒu yú gū

 

Exp:

- one's crime deserves more than death

- deserve more than death

- death will not expiate all one's crimes

- even the death penalty could not pay off all the scores one owed to his victims
