"So do Chinese netizens really believe that a body double was used to shield Gu..."

"... or do they simply want to express their mistrust of the judicial system and of the authorities in general?"

I hate everything about the word "netizen".

I'd like someone who is knowledgeable both about China and about this story to estimate odds on whether Gu Kailai killed Neil Heywood. I'd also like to know whether her "confession" and "trial" affected those odds at all. Also, if she didn't murder him, how did he die?

The body double story strikes me as unlikely, just because I don't think they'd need one to control the situation, but I have a hard time assessing what's plausible in China and what isn't.
