More translations from EastSouthWestNorth

This time it’s more of the Peasant’s Survey, and a letter from outspoken professor Jiao Guobiao, along with the site owner’s usual great insights. Must reading for those trying to keep their fingers on the pulse of change (be it good or bad) in China.

He also has some upsetting photos and observations on the poor Chinese woman who was manhandled by our security-loving TSA. From the pictures, “torture” may be a more apt description.

I’ve read somewhere (although I can’t find a link) that there’s more to this story…that the woman had stumbled into the middle of a raid on a particular area – not sure if it was drugs or border issues – that she shouldn’t have been in. I’m trying to find out more.

my report was consolidated from multiple reports, where i took the common elements and ignore some that looked like misquotes.

there is an incorrect story, which is contradicted by all the testimonies from the female as well as all the Homeland Security officers, which goes as follows:

there was a raid in a house near Niagara Falls, in which officers found marijuana. the female saw the house, which had light coming out and therefore she went into it. the rest is history.

this is denied by all the principals. the ‘house’ is a US Customer Service inspection station. an African pedestrian was just arrested with several pounds of marijuana in his backpack. the agents looked outside the glass door and saw some females. agent Robert Rhodes went out to take them in. nobody said that the female poked her nose into some place where she shouldn’t be.

the incorrect story is a classical blame-the-victim deal. shame on whoever didn’t want to do their homework and check the story.
