Q: WARNING to all expats in Beijing

There is a warning going out to foreigners in Beijing at the moment. There have been a few attacks on foreign men by a group of 6 or 7 Chinese guys. They have attacked people with metal pipes. All of the attacks were in the early hours so if you go out at night just be careful.

Insecure local men are insecure and cowards attacking only when outnumbering their targets.

Do you mind posting some journal articles about it (fat chances...) or forum discussions about it ? What was the outcome for the victims ? Did they manage to make it to the hospital and declare the aggression ?

Whoa. I don't want to sound pretentious when I say this, but 6 or 7 vs 1 barely impresses me.

Even when I try to be honest with myself.

 

A long time ago, I got physical with a bunch of angry dumbasses. I didn't start it and I do not take any pride from it, but what I noticed is how empty they are. One single confident strike back and the whole group runs.

Where did you get 'few attacks'? What does it mean 'alleged attack'? 

 

I GOOG yesterday your title, and there was absolutely nothing on the Internet on the subject.

 

It's a bit overdo to post warning, because of the one-alleged-attack on the single foreign person in 20 M residents city. 

 

 

BuTT.... let's all be careful also when you're crossing the road anywhere in China.

And this is exactly why I go to the gym and continue to practice martial arts. 

 

Thanks for posting the article here and providing me with some bonus motivation because Chinese NEVER fight one on one... like REAL men.

A while a go, 6 Chinese students in my home province have been attacked by 3 guys. Police intervention, switft processing by justice, and apologies from the President. No denial, and of course, outrage in China.

When it happens in reversal (foreigner attacked in China), it's just completly ignored.

Assuming that this story is factual and who knows the background as to what really happened......the guys is extremely lucky that police didn't arrive on the scene during the (alleged) attack. He would have been the one heading off to the police station in 'cuffs and facing compensation and other issues.

 

As I have mentioned before, as was told to me by a local police prosecutor; "if there is trouble it is always the foreigner's fault."

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
