    Very sad, yes. Isolated incident maybe, but unfortunately there could well be a lot more violence at these games.
    To be honest, I'm not a supporter of these Chinese Olympics and refuse to watch it.

    I have heard Chinese are supposed to be really friendly, doesn't bare thinking about. You just never know.

    Its like the couple who were on there honeymoon in Antigua, both were shot, the girl in the head who died instantly, while her husband is said to be brain dead after he had been shot in the neck but the bullet travelled up to his head and lodged in his brain. OMG

    You just can't go anywhere.

    Probably got the blame for all of Bush's antics, you're American you'll do comes to mind.

    I dunno about you lot but the world is descending into chaos right now, it's pointless just blaming it all on the west, it's the whole shooting match, it's almost as if certain ppl are trying to force the Nostradamus prophecies upon us, 2012 is supposed to be a crucial yr in the doomsday stakes, lets hope it's all wrong, right now I have a plan to save mankind, this involves temporary sterilisation of anyone not working and the same for couples once they've had a child, this is to reduce the population of the world over the next 100 yrs to a manageable level and reduce livestock breeding, this should halt the global warming boat, as there will be a lot less heat sources and a lot less farting, next up comes pride, dress codes will be introduced for ppl going out for the night, please and thankyou will be drummed into kids at school, and anyone 80% suspected of or convicted of crimes will be targeted for victimisation in the same manner they inflicted on others, tv will be censored, a big boost in interesting educational programs to be introduced, all violent cartoons to be destroyed, no point teaching kids to be violent in the name of fun is there, money to be distributed more fairly with company owners receiving 40% of the net profit and the other 60% to the employees, this should reward the successful and remove the lazy man, referendum's on everything, and swift removal of MP's who do not listen to their public, full benefits for those who are disabled or mentally ill, so as of 2013 after the fall of man I will be picking it up from there with new beginnings, I will be operating my global rule from Bermuda, where I will advise those chosen to manage the various countries, no one will be hungry or scared ever again once the United Islands of VV are established.

    Don't think you can single out the Chinese and say "tut tut, what shocking violence" - two chinese people got battered to death in Newcastle at the weekend:

    Don't think that was the point or intention of this thread.
    Many people are opposed to this Olympic games, and there are obvious reasons for that.
    Nothing to due with racism, if that is what you are implying.
