Such a lovely place with loads of respect for human life (or any life, for that matter).

not going to watch the video, the discription is enough to raise hell in me. IMO Mainland chinese people have no class anyway and are rude so im not surprise that they would react like that to a dieing child.

So fucked up... I had a friend from china who was an exchange student and he basically said they don't really care for human life, there is too many of them that one death won't really matter to them. So I assume they think in a more insensitive and straight forward way towards life than we do. Different culture different beliefs. Still fucked up though IMO.

Meanwhile, Paul Tibbets remains a hero.

Sarcastic.

Yes, the people that watched are assholes. But given the fact that the situation IS different there, maybe you guys should be a little bit more understanding before generalizing your racist comments towards all asians.

Freak a-holes in mainland china will fraud you for anything. Some old lady fell down, then some nice guy go help her out "being nice. Now she grabs him and claim he pushed her down (or hit her with her car) and claim $$$$$$$. People are just afraid that if they helped, the girl's relatives claim HE/SHE was the driver.

A few bad apples ruins the environment. But PLEASE, it's not everyone. When there's close to 2 billion people living there, life gets harsh and yes, lives don't count as much. But that's just because of the environment they are in, not that people are ill minded naturally.

I doubt some of you can understand this. But frankly, there's an uproar also in the Chinese community. So no, not everyone is ignorant.

Hmm that's a tough one.

Welcome to China, where the life of a person is valued in pennies (especially a girl).

You may have more economic opportunities there, but you, and your family, will always be looking behind your back 24x7.

Not the kind of life I would like to live.

Video is in chinese, you can skip to 1:08 to see the most important part. Attached an article in english at the bottom.

For those who don't want to read or watch:
  • In Fushan, China, a 2 year old little girl was ran over by a van
  • By-passers see her, but ignore this litle girl who is flopping around and screaming in pain
  • A second van runs over this little girl, who is still screaming and crying for help
  • More by passers ignores her as they pass by
  • After 18(!) by-passers, a garbage lady(#19) walks by and finally recognizes that this girl is in trouble
  • The mom finally hears the cry for help and comes running out to hold her dying little girl in her arms
  • These chinese people disgust me(and I'm chinese) ...actually they always have, but this just heightens it.

IDGAF, I would risk being sued over and over again if it helps save a life, especially a helpless little girl. There is no way to justify this on ANY part of the planet.

Since when was being sued more important than dying?

People have family members they have to feed too. Their concept of "suing" isn't your concept of going to court. They'll bring all their relatives and demand money. There is no court/law involvement. More ppl = they win.

Would you save their kid but also give them all your money while watching them screwing you over?

Perhaps you could, because you live in a different environment where supporting yourself (financially) is easier. When you're competing with 1000 more for a spot to a good university, your concepts may change.

Remember, it's only valuable if it's rare.

Based on your claims, this just confirms that the end is near.

only for those that don't hold a ticket to the ark.

You have to really try to understand the environment there. Western worlds also went through that ages of chaos, it's a just a step during the natural evolution...

There still are people that try to make it better. All I'm saying is please don't generalize to all.

It's like saying the difference between bmw and porcupine is where a BMW has the pricks in the inside. Sure there are some aholes out there but that's not all of us.

Makes me wonder why my sister is over seas there due to her draw to the "culture".

Anytime I see "flopping" and "Dying" in the same sentence... I am not going to view for fear of what is...

My statement wasn't directed at you, nor was I generalizing. I'll keep my religious beliefs out of this and leave it at that

You can find evil and good in pretty much every race. We have a lot of abused children in this country while adults(a spouse,clergymen) look the other way.
To the one guy who mentioned a culture that'll skin an animal alive,watch meet your meat.

4. Fuck all the other bystanders who did what #2 did.

5. Thank god one person stopped to help her.

6. Fuck the mother for letting her 2 year old wander off. None of my kids EVER left my sight when they were that age.
