In situations where it is a foreigner person involved/intervening in a Chinese 'social situation'  ...

My next thought would be .........

Would that be the same in other countries ...........  ?

Tell me if you have ever come across this situation:

Walking down the street and see a Chinese couple arguing. The guy is slapping the girl or hitting or full on kicking seven colors of sh!t out of her. No Chinese stand to gawk at the event - even they realize what is going on and feel ashamed if they stand by and do nothing - while walking away and doing nothing because it is 'none of their business' and is a  'domestic situation.'

Most of us who have been here a long time - and have lived outside Beijing/Shanghai  - will have witnessed this.

On the few occasions I know of foreign friends who intervened even non-violently but only put themselves between the guy & the girl so he can't hit her any more - the Chinese guy shouted to passersby that the laowai was attacking him and shouting for support. He got it and the laowai got beaten up. AKA China vs. the World.

Does this happen in other countries? Perhaps but not in any countries which are in any sense developed. If a man is beating up a woman in most developed countries, if witnessed, other men will step in and a) stop the guy from beating the girl up just because it is plain wrong or b) stop the guy and give him a good hiding because beating a girl up is plain wrong.

Anyway the situation is - about a situation in China. Why try to divert to other countries?
"A king ceases to be a king, and degenerates into a tyrant, as soon as he leaves off to rule according to his laws." King James 1 in 1603.

I have personally been involved in this in England  ..........

Not pretty ...........

You mean tasers for laowais only? Otherwise with everybody walking arround with tasers....no thank  ...

Tasers issued only for laowais for personal protection and the general good.
If you see a man beating a woman or vice versa - ZAP EM then leave.
I'm just here for the money

I'd like to attract you attention to this part of the article :

I am very sorry to say this but the only thing Govenment care about is you pay taxes. They do not care who wrong or right. Look at all the poor people who are shoot in head in back of court house. This is sad and this is all they care about.

the 'newspaper' title should read

'Cretinous chinese girl can't drive, collides, attempts to extort a foreigner and relies on the mindless, xenophobic chinese public to do the rest'

disgusting
