This nation of people that doesn’t even dare berate a thief on the street but has have the guts to call for the extermination of little Japan. This nation of people that doesn’t even care about the suffering of their own living compatriots but are shameless enough to say they’ll never forget the dead compatriots. To have this group of people, in Japan they’re called fascists, in Germany they’re called Nazis, in China they’re called patriots! —Wang Shuo

If you have the same questions, please copy and forward/repost:
1. How old exactly is Tianyi?
2. Only Tianyi, this minor, seems to have information released [in public] about him, are the other little fellas all invisible?
3. Only Tianyi is a child with a mother, are the others all orphans? Not even a single relative or guardian?
4. Only Tianyi has an attorney, are the other four guys and their families so poor they can’t even afford to hire one?
5. At present, Tianyi denies all charges, can it at least be revealed whether or not the other defendants admit the charges against them?

Yet another explosion? Is Beijing going through a troubled time?

Definitely someone taking revenge on society. The root cause is that government officials aren’t doing honest practical things for the people. The result is individual extremism.

Can a capital of both killings and arson survive?

Beijing is already no longer livable.
