INCREDIBLE BUT TRUE, CHINESE POLICE SEIZES MAN'S HAND AS EVIDENCE?
Icheoku says when you think you have heard it all here comes the incredible but true story of a Taiwanese man, visiting his girlfriend in China, whose arm was cut off by thieves just to make it easier for them to steal his gold Rolex watch and ring? As if that was not hairy enough, the Chinese police compounded his nightmare when they refused to allow the man exit China with his severed limb and insisted they will keep it as evidential exhibit of the crime?
Icheoku says here you have a man who is now both suffering the trauma of loosing his hand and also of having his hand seized and separated from him by the Chinese police. What a double whammy of a life-changing experience and Icheoku hopes another story will not soon emerge that the confiscated hand have been eaten by rats or sold to people trading on human body parts? Icheoku understands why the man wanted to go home with his amputated hand, in order to have his complete body-parts in one place, so that upon his death he would be interred complete. Icheoku is similarly keeping a pulled tooth, well preserved, awaiting the last day when a complete and whole body will be returned to mother-earth.
The 60 year old victim, Hu Chi-yang, pictured above lying in his hospital bed, was visiting his girlfriend in the Chinese city of Putian, south-east Fujian Province; when he became a story of a mugged man who lost his hand to Chinese muggers and also had his severed hand seized by the Chinese police for evidence. It is also noteworthy that "emergency" does not exist in the dictionary of the Chinese police as they held-up treatment and surgery of the victim for about three hours in order to finish collecting their evidence and write their crime report? Now expect Icheoku to be on the next available flight to China, particularly Putian, Fujian Province and would you be my BFF on that flight? Lest Icheoku forgets, such violet crime is not restricted to China only as an American man holidaying in Italy was recently killed there by thieves on Mo-ped who robbed him of his Rolex wrist-watch before shoving him to the ground where he hit his head on the pavement and died.
