Really, so who is telling the truth, you or they? You were actually there? If ya'll get f@f;cked over and having such a hard time to live, don't you think this ain't the right place for you? I think you should leave man! Oh sorry forgot, it's probably worse in your country, over there you are just an average joe flipping burgers and nobody gives a F343ck about you, am I right? Here the chinos chickas like you, maybe in your country teaching Ingles ain't enough!

Ah the classic reply.
"If you don't like it go home"
That is in the top 5 of pathetic answers you will get in China and really does say that people here love to be controlled.

this just a warning to any foreigner in china who likes playing and smiling carelessly,this is what awaits your cheerfulness,i tried to help my student unfortunately she fell down and break her arm ,but the story was that i pushed her ,so i should pay compensation,since then i told them i have to quit and shame to you all......,let them tell us why did this guy throw the child,?this story is not clear,and if he didnt commit any unlawful thing ,why fine him? a simple sorry to the family is enough

yep heard that before. i was holding back a 5 year old kid by the upper arm, from going on a smashing spree in a classroom but was later told that i actually held the boy down on the ground by the neck and almost killed him.

amazing how what you do is twisted into BS. I refused to pay any compensation and that was the end of it as it was all lies. poor parents missed out on their free 20,000

Most places you work for will make some excuse to keep money from you. Anything for money in this country. Almost every time I get in a taxi here, the driver wants to take me on the scenic tour to take me where I'm going, even when I argue in Mandarin. The price is always higher anytime I shop anywhere that the price is not printed on the product. Luckily, my fiance is a local. Now I go to the store first, pick what I want, then send here in alone to buy it. Using this tactic can usually save me 100% from the "laowai" price. Most still believe the myth that all "laowai" are rich. Therefore stealing, cheating or over charging us is mei wen ti because we can afford it. Not to say that they don't try to take every last mao off of each other either. It's just more brazen towards "laowai".

What a joke. Chinese are the first to complain when things happen to them, but are totally ignorant of the things they do to others.

As for Dongdong's grandmother being so distressed she had to "lie down", this was probably due to the fact that she is an old bat - not a physical sign of trauma. I need to lie down everytime I take the metro in Guangzhou - does this entitle me to compensation?

Did he actually throw her in the pool or was she already in the pool? It says she "swam" up close to him.

"after Dongdong swam close enough, the man took her and raised her high in the air before throwing her back down into the meter-deep water"

Did he throw her into the pool (as Lulu is suggesting), THEN throw her again? Or was she already in the pool (as this passage suggests)?

It's very unclear what actually happened. If she was already swimming, that just sounds like FUN. I loved this kind of thing when I was 5.

Mike Hunt, fw208, Lulu: You seem to be very easily influenced by spin. Perhaps if you knew what happened you would be in a better position to pass judgement.

I guess that's exactly what happened, they were playing in the pool, the man grabbed her and threw her up and back into the pool like we all used to as kids and then she got picked up by the Chinese man who told her family and voila money making time...the foreign teacher is an idiot though because he has worked with these two faced animals before and should know better than to give a shark a wiff of fresh blood...

I'm ashamed to be a NewZealander! What a dickhead... No matter what, there's no excuse for what he did. Yes, there are two sides to a story but what could a 5 yr old child have done to deserve to be thrown into a pool? According to our newspaper, she walked past and knocked his leg! Duh!! So what? Get over it!

There's not enough information here but it looks like the family found a nice way to pick up some extra cash.

I thought foreign teachers were barred from discussing politics?

Yes, I have a sneaking suspicion that the girl was having fun before this incident, and then her parents saw an opportunity. Foreigners are a pretty easy target, legally, and it's also very easy for Chinese news "reports" to whip up anti-foreigner hysteria.

Foreign teachers are indeed barred from discussing politics. A fact that has no bearing on this incident, but it was obviously added to make readers boo and hiss at the bad guy.
