Good Samaritan Commits Suicide After Being Blamed for Accident

On December 28 in Heyuan, Guangdong Province, 46 year old Brother Wu was out on his motorbike when he came across an old man who had fallen over. Brother Wu went over to help the man up, he then took him to hospital and called the man’s family. A couple of days later he gets a call from the family demanding he pay compensation for causing the old man’s injures. A common story in China these days, however the ending is far more tragic.  

A few days after being accused of hurting the old man, Brother Wu, committed suicide. According to his wife, he felt he had no other option. However, if he had waited a couple of days more the police would have confirmed his side of the story: there were no collision marks on his motorbike, he couldn’t have caused the accident.

China has lost another decent human being because of more fucking greedy, inconsiderate scum. What a disgusting culture where nobody can help others. Maybe the old fuck who got knocked off his bike next time won't be so lucky. There is no hope for China...

Greed. Treachery. Fraud. Lust. Violence ..... are not unique to China. But China certainly effortlessly topped the list. Solid reasons for mainland Chinese to be proud of their "strong and rich" nation....who dare not respect such kind of a nation?
