  • On a separate, but related note- an inordinate amount of lawyers are alcoholics, or borderline alcoholics. The industry should change certain habits that perpetuate this problem (crushing deadlines, a culture of excessive after work drinking, etc).

  • China is not some sort of tin-pot country where justice can be bought or judges can be influenced.
    I wonder what would have happened had this occurred in some other countries.

  • @ Anon 3:44pm. China (the mainland) is very much a tinpot country with a tinpot legal system where justice can be bought or judges can be influenced. Hong Kong, on the other hand by virtue of the one country two systems policy still operates with some semblance of democracy/transparency so no hope of bribing a judge/etc especially nowadays, though this kind of behaviour would have been common/expected in the past

  • Has anyone given any thought to the fact that someone could have been killed by this drunk driver? The fact that there was no fatality was just a stroke of good luck for those on that road that night.
