TW Police beaten up by local mob?

Strange the three of them have so much blood but no broken noses or ripped up shirts etc. If it's real that's pretty rough.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

Can't find anything online, seems like a BS story.

My thoughts about the pic were similar to Tempo Gain's, but now I'm in the "don't know" group. I'm afraid to say one way or the other, mainly because some people in seem to have actually become upset about pollution in Shalu.

I don't know what to make of the vid below, but I guess it's about the pollution issue:



The video is about people protesting over the high heavy metal content in the soil that vegetables are grown in....Anyways, I ride my bike around QIngshui a lot and seeing how filthy the rice fields are -- they use gutter the is their arrogation system -- I wish I could just stop eating...

Here's a (Chinese Language) Liberty Times article on heavy-metal pollution in Dali, which I think is not far from Shalu:

I've looked and looked, using various combinations of words, and I've found absolutely nothing on it. But I still can't help but wonder whether there was a riot, and if so, whether it arose out of discontent about heavy-metal pollution.

Dali is in the same general area but a good 20 minute drive away at least. I wonder if eating Ritz crackers every meal would be healthier than eating all the crap food here...I'm not sure about the protest; I'll ask my wife.....wife hasn't heard anything..

Thanks. Surely somebody other than the poster of the pic on Facebook would know.

I've emailed my Taiwanese ex to find out what is going on, as she lives in Shalu. We can expect a terse and factually incorrect repsonse from her in the next 5 to 10 years. It will probably somehow have been my fault. :lol:
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

Thanks for the info.

I guess I'll provisionally subscribe to the Tempo Gain Training Exercise Theory.

I tried to find the post on FB but it seems vanished. No FB revelation what this was about - or not about.
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe
