Justin Bieber – going down?
There he goes, folks, heading down to the local pen for 30 days, drunk & disorderly, under the influence, possession of drugs. Say goodbye to the poor little rich boy as he meets Correctional Services for the first time. That’s what happens when you have more money than you can count, zero supervision and no sense. He can swap notes afterwards with Lindsay Lohan. Any bets he gets P.I.’d from the great US of A? (P.I’d – declared a Prohibited Immigrant, him being a Canadian an’ all. I see 100, 000 US citizens have petitioned Pres Obama to kick him out. I’m not surprised.)
An excellent new sport from China – track your most unfavourite civil servant/politician on the Internet, and watch what they wear and drive. Some clever Chinese fellow noticed that his local mayor or somebody wore a different and very expensive wristwatch in each photo, and each watch cost way more than he could afford on his salary. An official inquiry followed, and within days he was fired. Man, if only that happened here. Just count the Lamborghinis, the Porsches, the rest of the rolling bling.
Human flesh search engines
The Chinese have made another Great Leap Forward, using the internet again. This time they have moved mob justice Khayelitsha style on to the world wide web. How it works is someone fingers a bad guy for a wicked crime, and publishes what details he has. The internet community then hunts the suspect down through searches and hacks, and publishes what they find. The outraged’ community is now able to abuse and flame the villain online, send death threats, push turds through his letterbox, set fire to his car etcetera, in the name of justice. And just like with our own township justice, they often target the wrong guys. Sorry you’re dead, our mistake. We will try harder next time.
