It's China people, not a shock anymore considering how that bastard government acts over there.

HardRockSamurai:

THANKS CHINA!

Thanks for once again showing us how good we have it!

Unfortunately, this is -true-...

This just reminds me of how certain Chinese parents pour cold water over their daughters' heads thinking it will cure them of their mental-illnesses. "You just gotta be tougher!". Freaking ignorance...

If they dont get life in prison ill be fucking amazed, why would they beat him to death? and really to "beat him to death" would take a few hours of constant hitting, do those teachers have mental issues with children or something? Fucking adults and their problems

Edit: China has the most messed up society next to Iraq, they keep trying to live the old ways in a new and ever changeing world

What the hell? Seriously what the hell?! What justifies this? This shows me how utterly pathric and horrible people are, I may think humans suck but at least it sucks less here in the UK then in other places.

AkJay:
Does this reminf anyone of those little things called "Concentration Camps" held by a certain "Fuhrur" all those decades ago?

>.> Fuhrer >.>

But yes, it does.

it makes me hate the thing we call life even more, im tired of living in a world with so many problems and fucked up people, sure there are good people and laces but the bad greatly outnumbers them all.

I know hwo you feel, I tend to rant a lot when I feel down, but so much crap happens in the world that it makes the good points so hard to pick out.

I hate to say this, but those people who killed him deserve to be shot themselves, nothing ever justifies murder; under any circumstance.

when a camp has to state that their program "does not include torture or other methods that might damage a child's health"
something is already wrong.

I say those who murder should die themselves but the thing with that is that alot of people are accused of murder and are innocent unless proven guilty, they would have to completely rethink the punishments for murder because its still taking someones LIFE, they are gone now never to return, you dont know what they could have accomplished in the world, that kid could have grown up to be the genius that invents flying cars or something, so much life is wasted from murder everday and people that are proven guilty usually get just a certain amount of years in prison, they can rot in jail for 100 years and pay a huge amount of money but that wouldnt bring the person back.

What surprises me is that people are surprised that a communist dictatorship would use these kind of tactics.

When I see articles like that, I just get really pissed off. An internet addiction doesn't deserve the death penalty. Just...seriously wtf.

^Mimi:
*epic facepalm*

So the parents basically paid 1000$ to get their kid killed? :s
'fraid so.
What happened to having willpower?
I don't think China had any willpower
I beat plenty of addictions just by controlling myself and being with friends that knew what it was like.
Now that's a good idea

A tragic loss in the end.. sorry to hear it, his parents must be devastated.

Indeed. This is truly a sad loss.

这就是中国的"和谐社会"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is China's "Harmonious Society"!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I really can't say more than that.

Well judging by the swelling on the boys head here, here, and here it appears he was beaten.
Do you have a motive doctor?
I would appear as though he was guilty of some heinous crime....
Like what?
Running too slow would be my best guess.

Really china, really?

The_root_of_all_evil:
Games kill, allegedly.

Not playing games kill, actually.

Guess FOX News will be blaming this on games as well then?

Of course it's the games that kill! Not the blunt object that was used against the lad! Shit, it's his fault he had lag!

-Joe

Wow, talk about a good mood killer.
That's just plain fucked up.

The Faith in Humanity Bank is going to close my account of I go any further into the negative.

GodsClown:
That's some crazy stuff. Hope those teachers get thrown in jail or something for that.

That or they'll get promoted to the drug addiction camps...

Jesus Christ...will the teachers even be punished for this?

Rigs83:


I really can't say more than that.

Damn, that is sadly true...I feel sorry for the boy's parents...

Honestly how could anyone not be suprised? a communist country with a terrible human rights record? It still is bad that he was beaten to death, but the only thing you need to do to break an addiction is keep them away from it for a while. Not beat them.

AkJay:
Does this reminf anyone of those little things called "Concentration Camps" held by a certain "Fuhrur" all those decades ago?

Yes,yes it does. But what did you expect? China is a brutal authoritarian dictatorship,and i loathe it for that.

Alternatively,you could just pay my brother 1000 bucks for flying to China and beating people to death. He can do it - he's already a mix of Joker,Hitler,Freidrich Nietzsche,and Ice Queen. And he's only 12.

Dr Ampersand:
I wonder if the camp is going to be shut down or if the parents will "disappear". Anyway running isn't going to solve internet addiction.

No, no it's not. I run, and I still consider myself 'addicted to the internet.'

Betting 10 bucks that either he or his parents were political dissidents.

I KNEW IT! i KNEW they were doing that kind of thing at those death camps! they'll never cure MY addiction! THEY'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE! AH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! *Swirls round and jumps through window*

HardRockSamurai:

...China used to be cool...*sigh*...

china was never cool.

Well... huh.

Internet addiction, I get.
Camp to beat internet addiction, I get.
Beating addiction out of people... mmmm, you lost me.
Beating to death? Three people, none of them noticed "hey... he's spitting out an awful lot of blood" maybe they thought, "look, he stopped resisting, it might be starting to take! beat harder!"
*facepalm*

What's the big deal with internet addiction anyway? Honestly like it's such a huge prob... oh crap! I'd write more but it's 1:41am and I've got work at 8, I might post some more at work between facebook games...

Should never have happened. If his parents had taken on their responsibility for raising THEIR OWN CHILD, it wouldn't have happened.

Not really surprised to hear about any sort of terrible thing happening in China any more.

Further proof that Communism is the definition of failure.

xmetatr0nx:
Well not sure thats what they meant by we will "beat you into shape"...

Harsh, though not surprising that it happend in China. Im curious to see exactly what sort of regimentation they put the kids there through, sounds more like basic training for chinese troops. Wouldnt surprise me if they were just training soldiers.

They do have a tendency to beat on people pretty good in China.

But the kid had a mental attachment to the internet you don't need to club him. Running is good, the good ol fashioned push up/sit up regimen is also good. But if you over do it especially with someone in rough shape (I know, round is a shape) you can kill them. If you don't apply it correctly it can be more unhealthy than the Cheeto and Pepsi diet.

ninja'd

you got me there. I was about to correct my previous post. But then they would have disappeared and committed group suicide by shooting themselves in the back of the head then burying themselves in separate shallow graves.

If you get my drift

Really all that can be said is just a knee jerk reaction about how behind the times and evil China is.

you know what i think id prefer the shock treatment

Addiction to something socially acceptable to excel at is okay, but addiction to something socially seen as a one person activity is potential daaaanger.. If some people had it their way we wouldn't be using computer for entertaintment, and they'd still take up a whole room and have only word and number processors.

Mmm, so glad I live anywhere but there. Imagine if they tried to do that in America. Oh man, riots man. Riots. Sucks that they lost their son. That's deeply terrible, it really is. Nothing can justify their actions. Nothing at all. No addiction deserves death from those trying to "help" them. That's just bullshit.

However, you can't really blame people for getting addicted to something like the "internet". Different factors key into addictions, especially an internet addiction. Technology has made almost all the information we need right at our fingertips. Instead of going to a library and looking for all the information we needed or wanted, we can just go to Google. Social face-to-face interaction isn't needed behind a computer screen. We can hide all of imperfections and polish ourselves with some online persona that people either revere or detest. If they wanted to keep people from behind computers, don't make games like MMORPGs that connect other people from around the world. Don't let console games have internet capabilities. Let's all be shut off from the rest of the world and go explore it for ourselves again. Yeah, it's not healthy being addicted, I'm not condoning it. But it seems that everything else points to being crippled by it.

Remember South Park when the internet ran out? Case and point.
