Boy Cuts Suspended Worker’s Safety Rope Because of Noise

A worker suspended outside a residential building in China had his safety line/rope cut by a child who thought he was too noisy.

After the safety rope was cut, Liu was stuck in the middle of the air unable to budge.

The following article was the most commented article on popular Chinese web portal NetEase at the time of translation, with over 18k comments and 140k participants…

From NetEase:

Little Boy Cuts Safety Rope Because Worker Outside [suspended by the rope] Too Noisy

Yesterday afternoon, there was a scene of suspense at the Century City Longkai Community. Liu was doing his work on the outer wall of Building 18 at the 8th floor level when suddenly he discovered that his safety rope could no longer move up or down. To his disbelief and utter fright, a little child on a floor below was in the process of using a knife to cut the safety rope. Fortunately, his coworker called firefighters in time, and 119 [the emergency number for firefighters in China] rescued the frightened Liu after rushing to the scene.

The stuck worker was successfully rescued with the help of firefighters.

Over 20 minutes later, firefighters arrived on the scene. Mr. Zhang, who had called the police, described the situation. They were sent by their company to install outdoor landscape lighting on the Century City buildings by the road, and were at the 8th floor at the time. During the installation, his coworker Young Liu suddenly shouted at him that the safety line had been cut, and that he was stuck in the midair unable to move.

After firefighters and 110 [the emergency number for police] police figured out what happened and surveyed the scene, they knocked on the door of a resident on the 11th floor, and together pulled Young Liu up to safety. It wasn’t until several minutes later that Young Liu recovered from the scare. He said he had been hanging on by himself for over 40 minutes, and there was no more strength left in his hands. There was lingering fear for him as he thought about what he had just experienced. “At the time, I was using my drill to drill holes, when suddenly I felt the rope below me swaying freely. When I looked down, I saw a little child unbelievably using a knife to cut my safety rope.”

Afterward, this reporter and the police together went to the child’s home on the 8th floor. Through questioning, the child at first denied cutting the rope, but under patient persuasion by the police, he admitted to what he had done. He said he was watching Pleasant Goat and Big Bad Wolf at the time, that the drilling was too noisy, so he used a knife to cut the rope.

This reporter learned that the child is 10 years old, is in 5th grade this year, and with his parents outside at work doing business, he was alone at home. Police then called the child’s parents home to handle this matter. The child’s father, Mr. Tang, sincerely apologized to Young Liu and his coworker, and compensated them with a new safety rope/line.

Fucking retarded child!

Probably watched too much Pleasant Goat and Big Bad Wolf. [The popular Chinese cartoon has been previously criticized for gratuitous violence.]

The kid probably may not understand what he did, but his guardian must take responsibility.

  • What city in China did this take place?

    • Arendelle

      It took place in Guiyang, Guizhou Province.

  • “under patient persuasion by the police, he admitted to what he had done.”
    Would this involve hanging him out the window by one foot?

    • mr.wiener

      Tempting…very tempting.

    • Amused

      I thought we were talking about this Chinese kid, not Vanilla Ice.

      • lacompacida

        Both are consumables.

    • actionjksn

      We can only dream.

  • Amused

    Any follow up investigation will reveal the little turd wasn’t punished by his parents in any way shape or form, on the grounds that,”oh, he’s a kid”. Anyone who was ever worried about China rising to,” TAKE OVER THE WORLD….. woooooooo”, can take heart. There’s a few hundred million of these specimens, and they’re going to drag the country down like an anchor once they take over from the ones born pre-80’s. Damn sad to see this many kids ruling households.

    • AbC

      I agree that the parents of this kid probably doesn’t know how to raise a child for him to turn out to be such a selfish brat who doesn’t know the meaning of consequences.

      But to be fair, these incidents aren’t exclusive to the Chinese. You hear similar instances all over the world. Plenty of stories of eight/nine year olds using their parents guns to shoot their brother/sister/friend when they didn’t get what they want.

      For this story to become so popular (with most Chinese recognising the parents are idiots and the child to be a selfish moron), it seems that it’s a pretty isolated event and not common in China.

      • Amused

        Dude, don’t even try to defend the “little emperor/empress” syndrome afflicting China. It demeans your intelligence. You’re smart enough to realize its a ticking time bomb, and while that may be an unhappy truth, truth is still truth. And a VAST majority of these kids are just waaaaaay out of control. Sure, most not as bad as this little waste of sperm, but he’s just symptomatic of a broader illness.

        • Kai

          Dude, he isn’t defending the “little emperor” syndrome afflicting China. It demeans your intelligence to accuse him of such. You’ve projected a position onto him that he hasn’t taken. There is not a single thing he said in that comment that is patently disagreeable, which is a lot better than the speculation you made in your initial comment overeager to take one incident as some harbinger of China’s future doom.

          We don’t even know if this kid is spoiled. He may just be retarded. You have no actual direct basis for believing his parents didn’t punish him or teach him a lesson afterward except for your desire to believe they wouldn’t because you want to make a rant about the “little emperor” syndrome.

          You want to speculate that this might be a case of “little emperor” syndrome? Fine, let him speculate that this particular instance is closer to being an islated event than being common in China without being accused of defending something he isn’t.

          • Amused

            A Dodge is a Dodge is a Dodge is a Dodge. If you see a Ford or a Chevy in that 1st sentence, you need to get your eyes checked. You two can go tiptoe thru the tulips holding hands in a perfect world where nothing is ever wrong in China and anyone who points out any problems is the Boogieman and you automatically need to defend the motherland. Wondertwin powers activate and whatnot. The reality is, one of China’s biggest problems for the future is these kids. And saying “other countries have bad kids too” is just a weakassed dodge.

          • Alex Dương

            This is at least the second time you have not fairly read one of AbC’s comments. Then and now, his comments are way more balanced than you’re making them out to be. If you want to discuss something in good faith, you can’t willfully ignore half of what someone says.

            And let’s get one thing straight at least: no one is “defending” the kid. I didn’t see any of the translated netizen comments say what the kid did was justified.

          • Amused

            Oh sweet Jesus, not again.

          • Alex Dương

            It would seem you didn’t learn your lesson, then. Look, why pick fights with people who actually AGREE with you?

          • Kai

            No one has said anything to suggest they think “nothing is ever wrong in China and anyone who points out any problems is the Boogieman and you automatically need to defend the motherland.”

            You don’t even know if China is the “motherland” for us.

            He never said “little emperors” aren’t a social problem for the future of China. Neither have I. So why are you trying to impress that point upon us? You are not responding to what we have said. Instead, you are attacking a straw man. Just because @disqus_m6wRhKLLdv:disqus might disagree with you on one thing doesn’t suddenly make him the Chinese apologist you are trying to misrepresent him as. Likewise, me disagreeing with your strawmanning of him doesn’t make me a Chinese apologist either.

          • Amused

            Hahaha, you guys just keep proving me right. Duck weave and dodge all you want man. This ain’t Rumble in the Jungle and I’m not George Foreman (even if I wish I was sometimes= damn but that grill money must be sweet) and rope-a-dope will get you serious time here(poor Jackie Chan’s douche kid). The constant need to defend by deflection just becomes funny over time.

          • More Amused

            Your amused laid-back-but-still-tough on the internet act doesn’t change the fact you displaying all the characteristics of someone who prefers to beat on other countries to avoid seeing similarities in your own. Yes the little emperor syndrome is a problem, but how are they different from a vast majority of overprotected single children? How is this time bomb any worse than America’s generation of increasingly unemployed college grads, aging population, stagnant wages, and nonexistent social security?

          • Amused

            Really I think we should have some long walks on the beach in the moonlight before you go and take my name. I mean, how will I know if we’re long term compatible? And as soon as AmericaSmack opens up I’m definitely going over there to complain too. Things never change if no one complains. A patriot’s duty is to constantly question his country’s direction. And if I’m not a Chinese national, my wife and step kid are, and by god I believe that they and the rest of China deserve BETTER from each other. So yeah, I’m amused, but it ain’t that funny. Oh, and about the “internet-tough-guy” thing… Where you’re getting that I dunno, but I’ll see you behind the Google and you better have your bit-coin lunch money! Pfffffffft, hahahaha

          • Robert Bray

            I doubt the kid’s retarded. What he was doing WAS the logical thing to do.

            Probably a sociopath though. Which IIRC is likely to have a genetic basis.

        • AbC

          Clearly you have either reading issues or comprehension problems. Your response makes absolutely no sense. Or you have chosen to ignore 3/4 of what I said.

          Are you arguing that only kids in China are out of control and the issue doesn’t exist elsewhere?

    • actionjksn

      That’s a relief, I thought it was just the USA that are ruining their kids like that. It’s really bad here and it’s all the result of parents and schools listening to all these child raising “Experts”. Being a parent to them is out now, these days you’re supposed to be their friend.

      • Amused

        Oh god man, they’re plenty of ruined kids in the US too. Pretty much everywhere in the West parents been inundated with this weird over-the-top liberal horseshit philosophy that you never punish your kid, you just give them a “timeout”. WTFE on that tip. I was seriously worried about THAT problem(tho the US has worse), until I got to experience Chinese kids up close and personal. Turns out my dad was right, and there are vast differences in degrees of uselessness in the youth, who knew?

  • donscarletti

    Until I read this article I was sceptical about corporal punishment.

    Even if you’ve read Roald Dahl’s autobiography “Boy”, it would still be hard to imagine the principal in that book caning this particular boy’s arse as hard as it should be caned.

    Perhaps the Singaporeans can assist China here.

    • President Skroob

      All I gotta say is that if I ever see you hurt a child, I cannot guarantee your life will be spared.

      • donscarletti

        This kid committed attempted murder here. And 10 years old is a hell of a lot older than you need to be to realise the wrongness of that.

        Something’s going wrong with the way he’s growing up and it needs to be addressed. It’s either beating his backside or locking him up for a couple of years. I’m going to say the former is going to cause less long term damage than the latter.

        So, my solution of re-animating Roald Dahl’s principal is far less hurtful than what you can possibly suggest.

        Postscript:
        Thanks for threatening to kill me on an online forum, pretty classy. As I said, I’m a corporal punishment sceptic when attempted murder is not involved, but if I am ever involved in beating a juvenile attempted murderer’s bottom, I’ll be sure to let you know so you can hunt me down.

        • President Skroob

          Shoot me a message the next time you attempt to sexually assault a child. Just tell me where and when.

          oh oh i want to postscript as well!
          I really have a hard time understanding why people like you sexually brutalize children, or threaten to do so. I believe that this molestation is something you should be ashamed of and “I cannot guarantee your life will be spared” means I would testify in court against you and I am a personal advocate of the death penalty for people like you who molest children. So if you want to touch children’s bums I hope you die.

          • mr.wiener

            This BS is tolerated [barely] at shanghaist..it is not tolerated here. First and last warning.

          • donscarletti

            I just checked his post history from the same story on Shanghaiist when I was deciding whether or not to reply. This guy apparently believes spanking is a sexual act and thus when done to children is a form of molestation.

            Even when used in the bedroom, spanking is simply a method of physical domination. Some people might find that physical domination enhances sexual arousal, but its just a supporting part of the sexual act and not a sexual act in of itself.

            There seems to be a lot of pain in this Skroob and I’m not going to continue this topic.

          • mr.wiener

            I think he just choosing a character to be so he could troll as he has been doing that at Shanghaist all morniing. He cut off his replies to you, Song yi and myself halfway through….
            Smartest thing he has done all day.

          • President Skroob

            The smartest thing I did today was defend children against violence. Hurting non-consenting people is wrong. Touching children inappropriately is wrong. Corporal punishment is a human rights violation. Laugh all you want but violent, arrogant hate speech is not something I take lightly. I will stand up for the rights of defenseless people to bullies like you, and I WILL NEVER STOP. Violence is not the answer. Deal with it.

            post-it note
            I have other smart stuff to do today. might not respond for a while.

          • donscarletti

            You could be right. The internet has a lot of trolls, but then again, there are a lot of people in this world with genuine pain in their hearts.

            Either way, I have nothing to gain from arguing here.

          • President Skroob

            Yeah dude, think of me the next time you want to tell people that violent assault upon children is appropriate.

          • President Skroob

            Didn’t think what?

          • actionjksn

            I would beat that kids ass hard, and then when you said one word to me I would knock you the fuck out. The kid would be crying and you would be sleeping, because it would be lights out for you bitch.

        • SongYii

          troll alert

      • Amused

        Why? The person disciplining their child might die laughing at your protestations against the natural order of things?

    • mr.wiener

      I’m sensing a breakdown in basic parenting here.

  • Zen my Ass

    And the diagnosis is bad parenting again: you don’t leave a kid at home alone, you take turns, so that one parent can stay with him, simply as it goes…

    • SongYii

      i was a latchkey kid, i stayed out of trouble. some kids are just really shitty.

  • Arendelle

    I believe the child will make a great psychopath… The TV cartoon’s title reminds me of Doctor Who, anyway.

  • LuoyangLaowai

    Sorry My son almost killed you sir. Here Let me compensate you by replacing your rope.
    When I first started reading and the story said a small boy. I was thinking 5 years old or so. BUT 10 YEARS OLD!! He knew what he was doing. It all comes down to the Selfishness the Chinese have. the kid cant listen to his favorite cartoon so he retaliates. Pure Selfishness!

    • Teacher in China

      I had students that were 14 years old tell me that if I drank cold water immediately after exercising I WOULD DIE; I had another tell me, in all seriousness, that instead of air conditioning, I could place a glass of ice on the table in front of me to cool down; I’ve also had one tell me that if I eat sugar after eating bananas I WILL DIE…..never underestimate the gaps in practical knowledge kids here have…

      • satuon

        So maybe this kid thought that if he cuts the safety rope and the guy falls down from the 8th floor HE WILL NOT DIE. :)

        • Guest

          I think he really didn’t think that far

    • Probotector

      Does China have a young offenders prison system, like juvie?

      • LuoyangLaowai

        I think they do. But im not sure.

  • LuoyangLaowai

    I don’t think its about being simple. I bet that the worker was upset with the worker making so much noise that he could not hear his favorite cartoon so he tried to kill the worker. The boy was just being a typical Selfish “little emperor”

    • lacompacida

      I don’t thing you know what he meant by simple.

      • LuoyangLaowai

        Possibly. To me if someone is simple that means they maybe Mentally handicapped in some way? or better put to describe most Chinese as Stupid?

  • Kai

    I think he’s joking, dude, as an expression of his own disbelief that a kid would think doing such a thing was perfectly okay. I highly doubt he’d really do that, though like @mrwiener:disqus said, it’d be very tempting to use such a thing to very quickly impress upon the kid the fright he caused the worker. Then he could empathize and that empathy will guide his future decision-making skills.

  • Amused

    He IS just a would be murderer. Who will never face any consequences. The end. Don’t transpose your weird issues on me buddy, I’m not buying any.

  • lacompacida

    10 years old and have the inteligence to figure out the source of his problems, the initiative to take matters into his own hands with the creativity to to find a way to solve the problem, and the courage to execute his solution, and the discipline to finish it. This boy is going places. This is the kind of Chinese to fear.

  • lacompacida

    Cartoons were invented by the evil imperial west.

    • Amused

      With help provided by the Japanese devil, of course…

  • lacompacida

    Did they ask the boy whether he knew cutting the rope can hurt the guy before he cut ? I am trying for an attempted murder charge.

  • Zen my Ass

    One easy tip: if you want to teach good manners to your little one, start early and, first and foremost, show them directly. Kids are like sponges and absorb everything, so you have to be good and polite, if you want your child to be the same.

  • donscarletti

    Few developed countries have an age of criminal responsibility over 14. It’s 10-12 for English speaking countries, 14 for most of mainland Europe and 15 for Scandinavia.

    Anyway, an adult doing such a thing in China would be liable for the death penalty. I am recommending far less.

    As for advocating child abuse. I really don’t think I advocated anything beyond the mainstream way most people alive today were raised.

    • Ken Morgan

      Did you see the news recently? In the US a 15 year old made a fake call about a hostage situation against an online gamer who beat him too often. As such a police SWAT team raided the gamer’s house shot the father and arrested the gamer. The prank caller was 14 at the time he was tried under domestic terrorism laws. He was sentenced to 25 years in a maximum security prison.

      • donscarletti

        Barbaric. Simply barbaric. Sending him to prison until he’s 40 is no better than killing him.

        Now, if he was extraordinarily rendered to Singapore for punishment, he could be back at his school in a week, just add one of those standing position desks and he’d be fine.

        It’s far, far better than what his cell mates will inevitably do to his butt during the next 25 years.

        It’s all just sick.

  • Teacher in China

    I was waiting for the part where it said “The little child began cutting the rope, while his grandparents sat idly by and said “Hao, hao, what a perfect little boy you are…”

  • Kai

    I don’t have a strong impression of his past comments so I don’t feel there is some sort of racial bias at play in making the comment he did. There may be, but you’d have to argue it much more compellingly.

    I read it empathetically as a joke. My joking response would be something along the lines of smacking the kid upside the head asking him what the fuck he was thinking. It’s also just an expression of subjective disbelief. It’s a hyperbole.

    If people don’t think he was serious, they aren’t liable to condemn it. You think he is serious so you’re condemning him. That’s fine, I’m just suggesting to you that he’s very probably not serious.

    That said, I’m not saying “inflicting abuse” is “conducive to training a child’s empathy”. I’m saying “feeling what others felt” is often conduscive for developing empathy. If a boy steals his sister’s candy and eats it, him having his candy stolen and eaten may help him realize the consequences of his actions on the emotions of others by reflecting on his own emotions. I’m not advocating abuse, just pointing out how most people develop empathy, by experiencing things themselves, so they know how it “feels” when it happens to others.

  • AbC

    The father’s skills in parenting seems to be on par with his knowledge in compensation.
    I’m sure new safety ropes is going to be of use to someone who’s probably too scared to need it ever again…

  • Ryo Saeba

    The kid is insane. Cutting his safety rope is NOT going to stop the noise. After he cut the rope, the noise had to continue because Liu didn’t realize it immediately. The kid could of yelled at Liu and tell him to stop. But he did not. His plan was purely to wait for Liu to fall and die so the kid could get his sweet revenge. This is pretty much attempted murder!

    • Probotector

      “Cutting his safety rope is NOT going to stop the noise”

      It would it h had fallen and died, (although there probably would have been a lot more noise during the fall). I think that’s what the kid had in mind when he did this.

      • Ryo Saeba

        If the rope had tension on it, Liu probably would of noticed that someone was moving/cutting the rope. This is a safety rope, design to hold you if you slip and fall. It is not a harness design to have weight on it all the time.

        I know because we had a guy installed a AC unit and he had to go over our balcony on the 27th floor. The safety rope was tied to our balcony and another guy was holding it as well. There was never any stress on the rope because if it did, it meant he had slip and fell. The guy would probably pee in his pants!

        Also, another give away is Liu was on the 11th floor, and the kid was on the 8th floor. Unless Liu was using some kinda pulley system, cutting a rope below someone isn’t gonna make him fall. Not sure if a 10yo kid knows simple physics though…

        • Kai

          The story above says Liu was near the 8th floor and the firefighters merely pulled him up from the 11th floor. Not sure how accurate since some of the wording seems to introduce conflicts.

          I’m starting to wonder if the kid might have thought the rope was some kind of electrical cord to the dril. I only wonder this because of the same thing you point out about how it wouldn’t make sense to cut a guy’s rope BELOW his position if you were really intent on cutting his rope to make him fall. Maybe the kid wasn’t trying to make him fall at all. While I don’t think a 10 year old would mistake a rope for an electrical cord, there does seem to be some wires around that rope. Those don’t look like a typical electrical cord to me either but…

          It’s hard to know what the kid was thinking from our perspective.

          • Ryo Saeba

            The stories says “a little child on a floor below.” So there’s slack on the rope which when cut, will not make Liu fall immediately.

            The most common thing to do if it were anyone not intent on murder is to yell at the guy. Unless the kid is retarded, I’m sure he can tell a thick rope from a small electrical wire. If he had try to cut the wire, the kid would of been fried, and in which, he would of won a Darwin award. Guess that will have to wait for another day.

  • donscarletti

    My father was a lawyer and pointed out that I was criminally liable since 10 when I told him that I wanted to assault someone back when I was a kid. The idea of going to prison scared me so much, that I remembered that age until today. Mainland Europe and Scandinavia I did in fact google, to give a less insular remark.

    But seriously. This kid went way too far and literally tried to kill a worker because he was noisy. Ruining his life like the Americans would do by locking him up would be sadistic. Ignoring it would be just as cruel, since homicidal tendencies will not go away. If corporal punishment has but one use and one use only, I would say that it would be for when a kid tries to kill a man and fails. As far as there is a right or a wrong side of any moral argument, I am finding it very difficult to see why I’m on the wrong side of one here.

    If someone thinks I’m justifying beating children for not doing their homework, or for insolent comments, or for stealing a cookie or two, I don’t see how they could have come to this conclusion. Even if I did, it would take a special kind of idiot to do something just because a guy behind an Internet alias told him to.

    But, for sake of argument, and to replace your man of straw with one of flesh and bones I can argue along those lines if you want. I’ve been whacked with a stick more than once, my father even says in retrospect that it was probably a few more times than he should have, but I don’t have any particularly hard feelings as it was never arbitrary, as I mentioned, he was a lawyer after all. I’ve got no plans of doing such things to my own offspring, attempted murder or other similarly heinous acts notwithstanding, but you cannot simply group traditional disciplinarians with child abusers because of common a physical action, while ignoring methodology and motivation.

    • Guest

      You need to read about child abuse and its effects, which is very well studied, despite being under-recognised still by families and authorities. Your anecdote does not outweigh hundreds of studies on thousands of children. That is assuming you turned out alright, which could be a separate argument given your clear defence of child abuse.

      Btw, a child of has antisocial tendencies will not learn empathy nor become ‘good’ if you punish them corporally. It worsens their tendencies. It is mainstream practice to engage them socially and show them love in a variety of ways, which may not turn them into good Samaritans but it will stop them from becoming psychopaths. What you say about corporal punishment only works on those with the capacity to understand empathy.

      • donscarletti

        As I said, child abuse and traditional discipline are two separate issues. I was only defending the latter and if you want to connect the two, you’ve really got to make the case that pretty much every boy to grow up from the beginning of recorded history to the start of the 21st century was the product of abuse.

        As far as me turning out OK, it’s probably not for me to make an assessment either way. At least I was raised to not make ad hominem attacks and that’s something at least. One does make oneself the target of such things by bringing up personal anecdotes, but if I rely on tertiary research I’m “out of my depth”, so I don’t really think I have much of a choice.

        Many people in developed country’s are now and have been for awhile, following the advice of these so called experts who do all these studies. The results so far have been disastrous, have you seen the behavior of kids today? This modern parenting is what is mostly being followed and kids are far worse today than they have ever been.

        This little bastard in this story is a prime example. I guarantee you he’s never had his ass beat and this is not going to be the last violent incident from him either. And unless some kid is literally severely mentally retarded, they know exactly what they’re doing if they cut a safety rope on someone who is 11 stories up. Even some pretty stupid ones at 10 years old would know what cutting a safety rope on someone dangling from 11 stories up means.

        There is only one way that cutting the safety rope is going to make somebody hanging from it stop drilling and making noise. The drill wasn’t hanging from the rope, the human was. This is attempted murder plain and simple. The kid is a psychopath who tried to kill another human being. The only thing that will stop someone like that is fear of the consequences. Empathy won’t do it because he has no empathy, that’s why he cut the rope. He also figured he was too young to get in trouble, since there is no such thing as being in real trouble in his household.

  • This is why I hate Chinese kids

    • Amused

      If you want to hate this little bastard fine, but don’t hate the kids in general, hate the deadbeat parents. The kids haven’t got the life experience to know they’re being douchebags. Mommy and Daddy just can’t be bothered to give them any discipline or moral fiber.

    Still watching xi yang yang you hui tai lang at age 10?

  • actionjksn

    He wasn’t that simple. He was smart enough to figure out that he could murder the noisy worker by cutting his rope to stop the noise. And that he could get away with it because they would believe he was too young to know he was committing murder. So he’s really more of a psychotic little fuck, rather than simple. This kid needs to be locked up for about a year or two and studied to find out if he’s too dangerous to be let back out. I won’t be surprised if we hear more from this little bastard. Next time I don’t think he will fail.

    I always knew Xi Yang Yang was evil. With a name having two Yangs your personality must be yin.

  • Tandgnissle

    Work safety isn’t that high up there on the list either. A single rope and not a workers climbing harness, easy to end up dead even without little brats cutting your rope.

  • Claude

    Too loud in China!! That kid’s going to need an AK47.

  • actionjksn

    I can remember being 10 years old quite clearly even though I’m pretty old now. I will assume you can remember being 10 as well. Were you too stupid at that age to know what cutting a safety rope was that was tied to a guy 11 stories up?

    By the way he wasn’t cutting the cord to the drill to make the drill stop. He was instead cutting the rope that was tied to the worker to make the drilling stop. That’s pretty fucking calculating on the part of that kid. So yeah when “just a kid” tries to murder someone because their work is disturbing them, then he ceases to be just an innocent little child who doesn’t know what he’s doing.

  • actionjksn

    Please, this kid is a sociopathic and probably psychopathic little monster, sociopaths do not have empathy nor can they get empathy, because that is the nature of a sociopath. I agree with what Amused was saying and I know that America is full of violent little monsters too. And they come of all races. I highly doubt that he would give little white kids a pass for acting like this.

  • Corum

    At 10 years old surely you are not that stupid. If you are you should not be alive.

  • Zappa Frank

    Do you think if he was Chinese or Asian you would have replied in the same way?

  • LuoyangLaowai

    Yeah. You are right. I have almost no experience with non-Chinese children. What I was talking about when writing that previous post is how it seems that MOST of the Children in china are raised totally Spoiled. They will have a hissy fit if they don’t get what they want and even Kick and Punch their mothers, Grandmothers aunts, Anyone who does not make them happy. This stuff happens ALL THE TIME in China. But in a Civiilized western world, sure many children are spoiled. but I really dont think they would go as far as kicking, punching and so on. Because Im pretty sure the western parent/guardian would stop them. Chinese don’t always stop their child from doing that. So By “Emporer” I am using a common word to describe these kind of chinese children. Because they are use to getting WHATEVER they want

      but I really dont think they would go as far as kicking, punching and so on.

      When was the last time you were actually back home?

      • LuoyangLaowai

        I went home to the States Last year for a month before moving to Australia. I stayed in Australia 6 months then Came back to China at the beginning of this year. Other than that 7 months I havnt left china for about 4 years.

    First, he was joking. Second, I have a 9 year old son and a 10 year old daughter. They know right and wrong, life and death and sure as hell understand consequences to actions such as cutting a workers rope. If your child doesn’t know then it’s your failure as a parent.

  • mr.wiener

    Bullocks. If that was in the west I’d make that comment in a heartbeat. I think your PC hat is screwed on a little to tight.

  • Rick in China

    You seriously think 10 year olds can’t determine the difference between right and wrong, and shouldn’t be held responsible for their actions? Punishments shouldn’t be on par with adults (or teens even), of course, and simply beating the kid is silly and I don’t think anyone is seriously implying that’s the answer, but 10 year olds I know absolutely know cutting the rope of a worker suspended in the air is BAD. If the 10 year olds you know don’t think so, I’d say that’s a fail in parenting, then again if the 10 year olds you know grow up in China.. I wouldn’t be surprised.

    When I was growing up, I remember an incident when I was 6, in grade 1. A kindergartener with a really red face was crying in the playground and I asked what happened, he said some other kid punched him – I ran over and grabbed that kid..and influenced by WWF, gave him what was essentially a shitty ‘back breaker’. It was probably little more than a tackle being that I was 6. The result? Our principal grabbed me, picked me up, yelled at me, and instilled a shock in me that I had fucked up to the point I can still sort of picture his face — I had ‘garbage duty’ for 3 days..meaning I had to go around after school and at lunch picking up trash in the school yard as punishment. That’s at 6. I’m also a parent, so I’m guessing you’re either not — or you’re not teaching your kids how to differentiate between fucking up and playing around.

  • B*tches, Leave

    An army of uneducated, ill-behaved and undisciplined brats mixed with the general disregard of human life (because of over population?) and the result is this :) wait some more years, it will get better, you’ll see.

  • Irvin

    All this for a tv show, imagine what he’ll do on his first rejection. I do hope this kid wouldn’t grow up to experience that, might be another disfigured young girl in the making.

  • BillBo

    A ten year old couldn’t be held responsible but he clearly at least understood what he was doing. He was trying to kill this guy because he was interrupting his TV time. He needs some HEAVY therapy. He probably just got a smacking. I’m not one for hitting kids but I do hope he at least got that. Gotta put the fear of god in your child if he tries to murder someone!
