Chengguan ran over an old lady to death on the street with their “law enforcement vehicle” in China

M: I’ve been busy on ordering some low price goods for my eBay these days.
U: you should be well-stocked by summer
M: hope so.
M: Just we haven’t talked other topics these days.
M: maybe we should give some time to Kaddafi etc.
U: well…if it seems interesting for you
M: There is a woman in Libya. People are worrying about her.
M: now
U: i remember reading the news
U: she was screaming for help
M: yeah.
M: It has reminded me of some Chinese women who screamed for help.
U: tell me more
M: My English isn’t good. I don’t know much about that Libyan woman.
M: I tell you some sad news about China. do you like to hear?
U: sure
U: i hate sad news
U: but must hear it to understand
M: two weeks ago, I ordered a scale on eBay. It made me think of that old news.
M: Maybe it’s two different stories, or the same one. I’m not sure.
M: An old man was run over by a truck to death on a street.
M: It was recorded by the street camera and posted online
M: This old man was around 70, maybe older
M: He tried to earn some money.
M: He went to the street to collect some old newspapers, used papers, etc.
M: He tried to buy such papers low and he could sell high so he could earn some money for his living
U: go on
U: i’m here
M: He had a scale to measure the papers
M: But in the mainland of China, it’s illegal.
M: The “Chengguan” came
U: really…why?
M: do you remember that young man burnt himself in Ali’s country?
U: yes
M: he sold fruits illegally in the street.
M: same in China
M: understand?
U: yes
U: keep going
M: The local gov’t hires some strong men to deal with those people who do business illegally on the street.
M: Those men are called “Chengguan”
M: Some people think that the gov’t just think that they can’t collect tax etc. from those people and affect them to collect money from other people so they just send some strong men to kick them off the street.
M: The “Chengguan” came and took that old man’s scale away.
M: The “Clengguan” collect some properties to their own pocket by taking those people’s stuff.
M: The old man wanted to get his scale back. I think that he must be very poor and the scale must occupy a big part of his fortune.
M: He was too old and those “Chengguan” was so strong. He couldn’t get this scale back. And the “Chengguan” took his scale and entered the truck to go away.
M: The old man sat on the front of the truck to block it.
M: He still wanted to get his scale back.
M: The driver started the truck and ran over him.
M: He died on the street.
M: The camera recorded it and someone posted it online
U: thats terrible
M: Later on, I read a similar story and watched a video. I can’t tell if they are the same or the different story.
M: it’s really terrible.
U: do you have a link?
M: the reason that those people are “illegal” is that they are not good for those officials to collect money.
M: let me search it.
U: hey
U: i have to go now
M: wait!
U: ok
M: the link
M: at 1:20 it’s the record of the accident
M: have you seen it?
U: its taking a long time to load
M: oh, patience is a virtue
M: is it ok now?
M: it’s just 1:46 long.
M: from 1:20, it’s the record from the street camera.
U: it keeps buffering
M: oh, it’s an old woman, more than 70 year old.
U: ok
U: still buffering
U: i saw it
M: are you crying?
U: no…but its sad
U: ok
U: good night
M: ok,
M: good night
U: ((hug))
M: ((hug))

An open secret in China: Why so many new buildings have collapsed even before they are finished

M: I tell you the open secret in China about those contructions.
M: are you listening?
U: tell me
M: When a building will be built, there should have a contract, right?
U: of course
M: about who will build it and how much money to pay.
M: especially if the gov’t provides the money.
U: thats the problem
M: the people who have power or connections to the gov’t will get the contract.
U: the government getting involved in business
M: but they won’t build it.
M: they sell the contract to another person with less price
M: understand?
U: i understand not how to do it
M: for example, if they get a contract that’s $1 million for a building,
M: They give the contract to another person. That person pay them $0.5 million
M: then now $0.5 million for a building
U: its like a ponzy scheme
M: Most likely, the second person won’t build that building either. He gives it to the third person and get some money in his pocket.
M: then one by one
U: why do people put up with such nonsense?
M: The workers and managers just get a little for the whole price.
M: So the people who are responsible for building such a building will use the cheapest materials and cheapest labour forces.
M: The people even don’t give salary for such low price labour forces.
M: So before the building is finished, it may have collapsed.
M: That’s why so many new buildings have collapsed in China.
M: especially in earthquake
U: yes…poor safety conditions
M: ((nod)) right
… …
U: good info….thanks for sharing
M: 😛
U: good night
U: ((hug))
M: I think the whole world should know those brazen things those people do
M: 😉
U: the whole world does know
M: That’s my duty to spread it. 😛
M: ok, good night
M: ((hug))
U: ((hug))

Both Chinese and American people were shocked: the mayor took $25,000 bribe

I saw this post from a famous Chinese TV host, Cui Yongyuan and translate it here:

Chinese and American people were shocked: the mayor took $25,000 bribe

December 2009, the city of Hoboken, New Jersey, USA, two mayors, one deputy mayor, two state legislators, 44 Jewish clergies, as alleged bribery and money laundering, was arrested by the FBI. Cammarano,  former mayor accused of taking bribes $ 25,000 . This case is considered the largest in U.S. history of corruption and bribery case. I’m really shocked.

In the mainland of China, if an Chinese corrupt officer took bribes just worth of $25,000, the whole country can be shocked and moved. Even a corrupt secretary of a major, or a corrupt head of a small village can take bribes far more than it in the mainland of China. In fact, just a head of a middle school in the mainland of China may collect more bribes than this major and avoid any punishment.

Here is a case: A former deputy director general of public security bureau fleed to USA and brought $20 million with him. One of his crimes is that he killed a person and another one fleed. This former officer collected that man’s properties with some of his colleagues. This former officer died of cancer and a victim of that case is still requesting the return of his property now.
