Shocking China [Copy link] 中文

The question has become a national obsession since the shocking death of a 2-year-old named Yueyue who was ignored by 18 passersby as she lay bleeding on the street after a hit-and-run last month in southern China.

Nearly every day brings a new outrage — an 88-year-old man suffocating in his own blood after falling and breaking a nose, people rushing to photograph a suicide attempt without bothering to help — and another hand-wringing editorial about how to cultivate the kindness of strangers.

The latest example came Wednesday, when a 5-year-old boy playing on a sidewalk was struck by a wooden beam that had fallen from a construction site in the city of Linyi in the eastern province of Shandong. His mother begged motorists and bystanders to help bring him to a hospital, but all refused — including the chengguan, low-level municipal police, who drove by and ignored her, according to local media

If this truly occurred, and not saying you're not telling the truth. But if so then that is really sad. There's really nothing else to say.

Xuerengui, I repeat my question --

"If you were the mother, what you would do if it happened to your son ?"

I am asking you the question because I am not in China.  So, I need to understand what is the normal thing that a parent in China would do under the circumstances.  

This time, I hope you will answer my question so that I can help you and I can agree with you.

re:whampoa

The mother was helpless.  The motorists and most importantly the police should be stopped to help her take her son to the hosptial

Some posters are 'obsessed' with defending China that they would speak for Chinese with bad behaviours. They're probably confused and didn't realized that certain bad Chinese do not represent China!

What's the point of finding excuses and explanations to things that's already happened anyway. It's a reality that's happening that no amount of spinning can cover or lessen the ugliness of certain sections of the society.

Bad Chinese are doing harm to ordinary Chinese and China. Why stand on their side and ignore the harm done to China and ordinary Chinese people? It's a shame what these posters are doing

What is shocking ................

Is the number of people who come here to glorify such stories  .............

One of the most evident things is that in countries which have 'free or semi-free' healthcare facilities  .......

People stop to help .........

But in a country where the helper could end up financially imposed  ........

People do not wish to become the victim ..........


It is true that China should look at this situation ........

But maybe we should compare that to places such as  .........

India, Vietnam, Pakistan, Loas, Cambodia, Afghanistan, etc, etc, etc ........

And Britain, the US and France etc, etc, etc ..........

To find out whether this is a political, financial or moral thing .........

Or rather the effect of financial circumstance ............

Certainly when posters convict the whole of the Chinese population  .........

They actually convict themselves  ............
