I have heard more than once about the victim becoming the "trouble maker" in China. I have never had the experience of being robbed but maybe that is because I look mean and ugly and I would break the thief's legs.

It is something that makes me wary of returning to China. I don't want to be branded a "trouble maker" for defending myself.

From the song by LeAnne Rime "Life goes on''   ---- "Shame on you if you fool me once, shame on me if you fool me twice'' what s what I mean exactly..被偷第一次,是小偷的错,第2次也许 ...

become a smart troublemaker

The police is correct - the robber did not commit assault, but you did! This basic law is the norm in most countries. If you killed him you committed murder. For example, in most states you can't shoot or use a baseball bat on a robber who is robbing your house - because the robber did not threaten nor harm you (yet).

Now, you can "apprehend" the thief and "hold" him at bay with his face on the pavement while waiting for the police to arrive. Or the whoops, while tackling him his knee was fractured - the "shock and awe" approach. (Hint - Knee wounds takes years to heal and operations are very expensive)

thanx for sharing your story @T.S.

I am also a victim in snatching but luckily they failed bec. i always secure my wallet  in my front pocket of  my skinny jeans. So from now on I always avoid strolling around on crowded place and even watch out for some zhenjiang (muslim) people behind me bec. many of them are involved in snatching.

today it is recommended to have wallet with waist chain.
