"wouldn't be able to get away with" is different than "wouldn't do it"

Also they've been getting away with quite a bit lately.

By which you mean, the denial part of it? They could certainly do the thing itself. They've already executed one unarmed woman for being a dissident on video.

Pretty sure that's an estimate of the number of people who were there, not people who were actually killed.

Either way, I didn't realize it had to reach a specific threshold before it warranted whatever response would stop them from "getting away" with it. They're good as long as it doesn't break, say, 10k? As long as they keep it to mini-Tianenmens where they firebomb 1k here, drone strike 1k there, the government executions would be acceptable?

They'd do it openly and it wouldn't matter.
