It's never wise to resort to violence to settle disputes, but the cabbie is also to be blamed for th ...
It happened in Henan more than a year ago. A cabbie started beating up a foreign woman who is deaf. They were near her home. Her son saw his mom getting beat up and went to her defense. He beat the cabbie pretty bad. The foreigner got locked up for several weeks. He was finally required to pay about 50,000 rmb to the cabbie, released and deported. Of course, nothing happened to the cabbie.
Another foreigner here got drunk and his cabbie took him to the countryside (after he'd passed out in the cab), stripped his clothes off, took all of his possessions (clothes, money, cellphone, jewelry, etc.) and left him in the dead of winter. Nothing on except his underwear.
When he woke up, he ran to a nearby road and flagged down a guy on an e-bike. The guy was scared and wouldn't cooperate with him. He knocked the guy off of his e-bike, stole the e-bike to get back to his apartment before he froze to death.
The final outcome was, he spent two weeks in a Chinese jail and had to pay 25,000 RMB to the cab driver. Then, they deported him. Again, nothing happened to the cabbie even though they clearly idenitified him.
Things never go well for foreigners in China even when they are victimized. You will be held accountable for your actions (not the Chinese person). You will be punished. It's just a fact of living in China. You need to avoid anything you possibly can in China. It won't go well for you if you're white or black. (This guy was white).
If you work here, do your job, go home and avoid any kind of nightlife aside from eating in a restaurant.
Best advice I can give.
