...holy shit...shoplifting in China ? That's just plain fucking
stupid. How did these jokers make it into college ? Well, they're
in for a real eye opening learning experience, Chinese style:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-41910820

Three US college basketball players have been released on bail after
they were arrested in China for shoplifting, according to US media.
The players of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) were
caught shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store, according to ESPN.

The UCLA team is in China to play their season opener against another
US team, Georgia Tech.

US President Donald Trump is currently on his first visit to China.
The players that were held in the city of Hangzhou are Cody Riley,
LiAngelo Ball and Jalen Hill, according reports. Ball is the younger
brother of LA Lakers player Lonzo Ball.

I heard about this incident while taking my daughter to school this morning and that's the same thought I had. Have they never hear about China and how they deal with such things, especially when they involve Americans?

How smart do you have to be to know that laws in communist countries are not geared towards individual rights?

You only have rights like that in Protestant countries, not in atheistic countries.

So, not in Ireland, nor Italy, nor Spain, nor Poland.....

If you are going to be a theist troll here, at least don't be

Nope. Most of them have too much body mass and too little ear surface
area to become aerodynamically viable. But they may overcome this
with a lot of training, like the bumblebee that suffers from the same
imbalance, yet manages to cope.

I suspect that the calculation that 'proved' a bumblebee cannot fly was

Generally, arresting overseas sports players before they
go up against your side - or the side that you've bet on -
is a thing. Just saying.

...holy shit...shoplifting in China ? That's just plain fucking

Three US college basketball players have been released on bail after
they were arrested in China for shoplifting, according to US media.
The players of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) were
caught shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store, according to ESPN.
The UCLA team is in China to play their season opener against another
US team, Georgia Tech.
US President Donald Trump is currently on his first visit to China.
The players that were held in the city of Hangzhou are Cody Riley,
LiAngelo Ball and Jalen Hill, according reports. Ball is the younger
brother of LA Lakers player Lonzo Ball.
Generally, arresting overseas sports players before they
go up against your side - or the side that you've bet on -
is a thing. Just saying.
In Britain, we are more advanced. We arrest our own Ashes cricketers
before they can go overseas.

With the help, I think I recall, of national newspapers,
which had an interesting approach to torpedoing the national
team just before their big occasion. Not that overpaid athletes
accused of non-sport-related offences isn't important news.
Wait, my mistake. It actually isn't important news.

The fourth estate also has printed pictures of sportspeople's
damaged body parts for the populace to pray for, or to.
As if we were, I dunno, India?

One would have thought we could use all the good news -- important or
not -- that we can get. A little success in athletic endeavours may not
be important in the greater scheme of things, but when the greater
scheme is going to hell in a fraying hand basket, we cannot really be
choosy...

Well, journalism is a business. And good news is bad business,
generally speaking. A newspaper wants readers anxious and in
need of the information that the newspaper purveys.

Generally speaking, true. But I think there are exceptions, and a tale
of national triumph may well be one such. The problem, IMHO, lies in
the fact that controversy is also good for the media business ... and if
there is no controversy, one can easily be created. Our press are past
masters at this.
