Q: Crackdown in the next 100 days - result of the assault case last week?

So the government have decided to do a 100day crackdown on foreigners in China. 

 

Do you think it is in reaction to the assault case last week?

I'm sure it does.

Another example of China's inability to have an original thought.

The article you linked also contains the answer to your question:

 

"Wang Wenjie, a spokesman for the bureau, dismissed any suggestion that the move is linked to the arrest last week of a British tourist suspected of indecently assaulting a Chinese woman"

When something looks like an apple, smells like an apple, and tastes as an apple, you will have no choice but to call it an apple.

this is why that guy should be hanged. dont come to china thinking it's spring break. also developed countries need to be more careful about who they give citizenship and passports too. when they go out in the world they represent your entire country.

It could have something to do with the change in leadership this Fall, no? They crack down every time there's a big event. In 2008 it was the olympics, 2010 the Expo and 2012 change in leadership. There's a pattern!

with this crackdown I am starting to hate it. Yesterday walking home (i walk pass two normal police stations not the traffic police) few police guys at the front asked for the passport showed it to them fine and move on walk past the 2nd police station get asked again am I going to be stopped every time a policeman/woman wants to see my passport? 

It's obvious they have no idea how they are controlling it and seems they will stop every person who walks past a station.

If it happens again and again I'm sure I will be deported as I will abuse a police officer.

I walked past quite a few police in the last few days in Shenyang and have not been asked. I have never been asked in my five visits to China for any ID  and have only recently started carrying a copy of my passport and visa page around with me. brisguy, did they ask you for your PSB rego papers as well?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
