Crime & Punishment: China Equation

I was terrified to read this.
China food safety head executed...

When I read "executed" about anything other than the war crimes - I cannot comprehend it in the first place.
"Food safety" and "executed" - there is something incompatible in there.
He was convicted of taking 6.5m yuan ($850,000; £425,400) in bribes and of dereliction of duty at a trial

I think that human life cannot be equalized to $850,000 or any money because in this case justice looks the same as ransom (from the opposite angle, though).
