Three young speeding motorcyclists in Hainan, chased by police, die

The East is Read
Surely at some point we've all encountered street racers or speeding motorcyclists in China, usually young people with too much money and too much time. And how many of us have been able to suppress the thought, I really hope they get into trouble. Death? No, not that. But trouble -- a hefty fine, a 12-point driver's license deduction, a single-vehicle wreck...

These are the worst type of stories. The. Worst. What we have is a foreigner (laowai) and Chinese person arguing at Sanya Airport in Hainan province. (What is it with Sanya?

Accept it, for residents of Dadun Village are all engaged in the process of death or already dead.

At the 2:30 mark, the student hurls his shoe onto the stage -- a good 20-yard throw, it seems -- drawing more applause.
