Ningxia holds “family meetings” for inmates
January 17th, Ningxia Yinchuan Prison and Ningxia Women’s Prison cooperated to hold the “2012 family meetings for prisoners event”. 69 inmates from the Ningxia Women’s Prison walked into the Yinchuan Prison and met with loved ones who were also serving prison sentences.
At the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region Yinchuan city Yinchuan Prison, inmate Xiao Yang leans forward as close as possible to his wife to hear her weep. Five years ago, Xiao Yang was sentenced for drug trafficking, while his wife was also sentenced for illegally concealing drugs to the Ningxia Women’s Prison to be reformed.

Although the two prisons are only separated by a wall, normally they are unable to see each other.
Seemingly pitiful people must have something hateful about them!

A simple question: Your mother is in the hospital and needs 300,000 in order to save her life, you haven’t a single center, what do you do, in this society?
How come the incident of an 18-year-old girl successfully holding 8 criminals hostage to break out of jail still hasn’t been reported?
Early morning in the new year I see a piece of news about my old hometown, and it turns out to be… sigh!
I remember when I was small that drug trafficking was rampant. In junior high, there was a 16-year-old boy I knew who would go to the school dorms every day to do drugs. A month later, I never saw him again. Rumor was that he died. On the street of my home there was a person who was very niu. Rumor had it that he got into a fire fight with police while drug trafficking in Yunnan, and carried the big boss out on his back, resulting in him then becoming his second-hand man. He was a sight to behold. During Chinese New Year’s, he would ride home on a Harley, and he had a Lincoln car. He would bring his mistress home and his wife would sleep in the living room. In 2003, he was arrested and sent to prison. His family offered 200 million but they still couldn’t get him out! This is just an example of the drug traffickers at the time, they were so common. There were a lot of villages in my hometown that were widow villages, where the males from 10-70 years old all went out to traffic drugs, leaving at home their wives to take care of the house. Some of the wives also went out with them. A neighbor, a pair of twins, went out for 3 months and came back driving a pickup truck, each one bringing back a young girl, honking the horn all the way. However, they only came back that one time, and we never saw them ever again after that. These days when you go to Tongxin county and Xiamaguan county in Wuzhong city of Ningxia, there are a lot of millionaires, all of them made by drug trafficking back in those days. In recent years, it has calmed down a lot, and now you rarely hear about people taking up that profession. The money comes fast, but so does death! The new year has arrived, may everyone in the year of the dragon have good fortune, a happy family, a healthy body, and may I get rich in the new year!
How come the clothes the men and women wear are both the same? (I’m referring to the visitors)! Looks a little like speed dating!

Both husband and wife were in prison…
Never commit a crime! Look at those old mothers and sons… The greed of humanity… May I get rich in the new year!

It isn’t greed, it’s poverty.
