Actually I agree with you, concerning not letting public opinion sway application of law..... but all citizens must be equally treated under the law for the public to respect that position.
The brewing concern that matters is not originating from "gweilos" on this forum though, so your insinuation of outside manipulation holds little water. If you want to address the majority of Chinese citizens, who have voiced concern regarding unequal treatment under the law, then perhaps your comments should be made on Chinese language version of forums.
I am not literate in Mandarin, otherwise I would be happy to join you there and add to the discussion.
I have thought about your post above and now I am ready to give you my thoughts.
I will, for now, also try to ignore all those bloody distractions from kiwi, sinanka and sinking hell (rigger) -- who are only interested in themselves (vain pots!).
[red] What to do? All have to be treated equally. That's the law! But my personal thought is that those in influential and official positions should be punished more severely than the common folks when they commit a wrong. A clean government should be the long term objective, and any official convicted of wrongdoings of whatever kind, should be punished by legal means as well as be stripped off his positon and all the benefits and privileges given to him. He will go down in disgrace ! But these changes, can be done, takes time and patience. It also has its risks in the process of changes. Like I said in my post #37 and subsequent posts, the powerful and government have to shoulder that responsibility of lifting poverty and corruption.
[blue] How on earth did you get that ??? I think you gweilos are damn self-centred. You write here but CARE all the heck about yourself. That's why I don't think the Chinese should trust you guys at all. Just look at Kiwi's posts ... it was all about himself and attacking me. What was voterigger's contribution to the subject-matter here? Sinanka's latest was a personal attack and insulting ! Swines, all of you !
Put it this way, I don't need to insinuate. I will tell you straight in the face what I think about you ! Trust me! I mean what I say; I don't twist and I don't tango with anyone !
I was TELLING the Chinese as I respond to the allegations about their angry reactions and the charges being changed because of that. Go read my posts carefully ! Gweilos are NOT important to me. Got it?
Here again, let me say this, if the Chinese anger can bring about changes and reforms, I am fine. My other concern is the Chinese's growing distrust and disillusion. Such feelings are infectious and unhealthy. You know what, the thread that saddens me most is the one when Suying said she was leaving and everyone said "Go.....".
For me, I feel that China is an opportunity. I know not all is good and well yet, but it will be worse if the people are always angry and distrustful. Mr Justwowo asked (#137) "why so many girls were cheated and raped". That's something to think about. Straighten your thought. Think prevention through education and awareness. People will not be easily fooled and thinking simplistically. (Well?)
As for gweilos' or any outside interference, I think that is NO GOOD either. You and I have different sets of standards and values. They may not suit the Chinese.
[maroon] I don't write on any Chinese forum either but I would love to try if someone can provide me a good link and I have the time to do so.
