That's in horrible taste.

You'll fit right in.

I think if you die while playing hide and seek, that pretty much means you're the Grand Champion.

Great headline.

This has been a great week for Fark headlines. We're gonna need a bigger HOTW list.

I don't think an investigation in Mississippi will do any good. He died in Beijing.

He suffered fatal brain injuries playing hide and seek with fellow inmates. That sort of brings up the question of who was trying to hide what where.

That sounds like a hide and seek fail.. he's right there in plain sight and he's not moving

Considering that it was a Chinese detention center, I assumed the guards were trying to hide their batons inside his skull.

I love how they're applauding how transparent the investigation will be. An inmate died while playing hide-and-seek...you think maybe there was more to it? Maybe hide while we hit you with this nightstick 37 times? Now they'll pretend to investigate and then miraculously find that he really did die of playing hide-and-seek. Yeah, whatever...

/They could have come up with a better lie and said he died in a fight with an "inmate who we are choosing not to name for possible legal reasons." Really, it's a totalitarian government-they can just say he fell and died and who's really going to challenge them?
 
2009-02-20 08:07:37 PM  
Will the investigation start out by; One, two, buckle my shoe?

Is hide and seek a popular prison game?

That must have been some hardcore, mutherfarking EXTREME hide-and-seek.


And WTF, Riverking? Is your post playing hide-and-seek with another thread?

TFA: "This demonstrates openness of information and a move towards greater transparency and that the government is becoming increasingly open-minded," Bian told The Times.

Congratulations, China! You released the details of how a prisoner died while in your custody. You get a Freedom Cookie! High five!

The public outcry is in regards to the death of 24-year-old Li Qiaoming, who police claimed had suffered fatal brain injuries while playing hide-and-seek with fellow inmates at a detention center.

It sounds like the unvarnished truth, too.

So he kicked the can?

oldsbone: totalitarian government


I don't think that means what you think it means... Or else you haven't been to China.

Irregardless, I agree with your general point: this will be a complete joke of an investigation and no truth will ever come out of it. However, I would contest the assertion that no one would challenge the government; a few years back they had riots over the way a murder investigation was conducted, and there is a lot of online chatter that is poorly censored that can stoke the flames of indignation among civil society.

/That said, Chinese people in general have even less sympathy for criminals and prisoners than Americans.
//Just my observation.

Upon further review, "olly olly oxen free" found not to be proper police procedure.

It's probably a ruse. He's still hiding.

They should look for him in Sardinia.

So much for that image of Chinese prisons being tought. I mean, sure they killed a guy, but to do it playing hide and seek? Real men die playing Red Rover.

Was he hiding, or were they burying him alive so they could pretend they forgot to look for him and then remembered--oops!--just a little too late.

Awesome. Just remember the importance of not being seen.

/Don't stand up

Somehow it doesn't seem like a good idea to have a prison in which it is possible for inmates to play hide and seek.

Where did you find that image? My GIS-fu failed me earlier today.

Funny, I found a blonde skeleton under the basement stairs when I moved in my house. I called the previous owner to see what that was all about. Apparently, she won the hide and seek game 4 years ago.

Am I the only one who saw the irony of these two sentences being in the same article?
