res10_attpic_brief

(From wccdaily) It happens in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province: 140 unlicensed passenger vehicles are put together by the Municipal Committee of Communication to destroy publicly. To make it personal, the committee invited over 50 cab drivers to finish their enemies with iron bars.

The 140 vehicles consist of 73 knock-off cabs and 67 illegal vehicles that fail to accept punishment in due time. "Let’s do this" orders a officer, and a bulldozer smashes the roofs and glasses of the lined up cars with its gigantic shovel.

"These wild cabs cheat people on purpose, they are our enemies." says Liu Yang, who chops up 4 cabs nonstop. The remains of the knock-off cabs makes him laugh. Liu Yang’s cab was cloned in the recent year, and he was ticketed times for no reason, he even got complained for dumping passengers, which he never did. Last month, his colleague found the cloned cab and called up Liu as well as 30 more cab drivers to besiege the wild cab. The cab was cornered in the end and handed over to the committee of communication.

According to the officials, most illegal cabs are actually scrap or combined cars although they appear to be brand new. Their severely worn parts and tires pose threats to the traffic, and in the case of traffic accident, they are difficult to chase down. Smashing them down in groups sends a message to the wild cab industry.

        1. hahahahhahahhahahahahahahahahahahah. So I can say something like “I carled an employee of mine?” Or “I carled a Carl yesterday”

          You can say, Carl got carled today for receiving a hot carl from the janitor.

        2. sometimes i wish nobody should ever surpass your level of stupidity, but somebody clearly excel at filling that spot for you.

      1. No, it really is retarded; by now everyone should know the fallacy of the broken window but here they are literally smashing windows to improve the local economy. These unlicensed cabs should be repainted and sold as normal cars or given to the legit taxi driver identity theft victims for spare parts. To smash them up with crowbars is retarded.

        1. did you not read the article?

          repainted and sold as normal cars? given to legit taxi driver? i think that’s retarded.

  1. I actually think it’s okay. I was going to write a “WTF” comment until I saw that some of these cabs are copies of real taxis complete with numberplates and driver’s info. I kinda get why this guy is pissed off getting fines and complaints coz some moron has copied his information.

  2. I’d understand their anger even if the black taxis were simply stealing customers

    But stealing their identity to boot? Anger is even more justified…

  3. Next logical step is putting the criminals in public place and urging people to throw at them rotten eggs… afterwards maybe executing in public – also should be funny, huh?

  4. I’ve seriously got nothing to say to this.
    Can’t comment. Really.
    What’s the point of this report.
    What’s for show here.
    What’s interesting in it.
    Nothing.

    I just don’t see the purpose of this article in a website that’s suppose to pour shit on China. It’s like one of those “granny-got-stuck-between-table-and-chair” article.

    WTH?

    1. Eason so why you keep responding to post?

      Eason not have anger to post. Eason has loneliness

  5. Hm… overall a pretty creative idea by the local powers to be to keep the local folks from taking a swing at them. Let’s face it – given the number of cars involved, one has to wonder how many local powers to be were on the take.

  7. Should be the Municipal Committee of Transport instead of the Municipal Committee of Communication. Jiaotong is a misnomer. Should be jiaotongyunshu.

  8. Whatever their reasons for stealing, the act remains unacceptable. They should be responsible to look for a job that will not will not harm anybody.
