    In the western world, we would block off the street, take 12 hours to talk him out of it, spend £5 million giving him a fair trial, give him a plasma TV for his cell and pay his food and lodging for life.


    No wonder their products are cheaper than ours.

  7. Kidnapping kids in the PRC... oooh, rookie error! Not like they've a track record of zero tolerance, or anything.

    I remember reading about something similar in Xi'an in 2006 or 2007. Some bloke snatched a wee girl from a queue in a shop, Uncle JC happened to be walking past, "Let the kid go!", "No, I want...", BANG, "Aw, petal, did the nasty noise hurt your ears? Never mind, here's your mum."
     
  8. Did they send his family the bill for the round?
     
  9. Good drills, that man! :D 8)

    He may be a dog-eating Commie, but I would happily buy him a beer(offer not legally binding :wink: )!
