I saw it a lot in Mexico -- bros getting in street fights over girls or a brush-by. um, you're not a citizen here and don't have your typical US rights.

coincidentally enough, the influx of Chinese tourists to other countries has earned them the same ugly reputation.

It involves LaVar and UCLA begging forgiveness publicly, and it involves Trump not fucking up relations during his visit.

So it's a path fraught with peril. But it's there.

20. "I'm not worried about basketball if I'm them."
In response to Reply # 19


  

          

They've been released, but they've been ordered not to leave their hotel until the judge decides what to do. There's no due process in China, so that could take weeks of essentially hotel arrest. And if they decide to press charges, China doesn't give a fuck. They've jailed foreigners before, likely for less. There's no extradition treaty with China. There's a 99% conviction rate in cases like these. So if the Louis Vuitton manager feels like being an asshole or "making an example," then their asses may go to Chinese prison. *Will* it happen? Hopefully not, I'd even say it's more likely to not... but it's a more tenuous situation than I think most people realize.

I asked a friend who studies international relations with China for a living about the situation. Her eyes got big when I told her the details, and she said, "They better not give anyone a reason to be petty. Or they're toast."

So if I'm them, I don't care a scrap about basketball right now. I care about not landing in Chinese prison. Which, regardless of who they know, is an actual possibility.

I'm just pointing out that China has literally all the cards here, so the school/family/gov't lawyers need to give them whatever they want, because China has proven in the past they'll lock foreigners up to make an example-- and it's a pretty cut-and-dry case in this situation. It'll all depend on how lenient the folks in China choose to be-- so everyone needs to give them a reason to feel like being lenient.

Is the case really that “cut-and-dry” at this point? Do we even know what actually happened?

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

The optics of China sending a 18 year old famous athlete from the United States to Chinese prison for years over petty shoplifting on a sports cultural exchange trip would be horrible.

China isn't trying to start shit with the United States and locking up a Big Baller would be a step in the wrong direction.

As long as he apologizes and Lavar doesn't say anything stupid, LiAngelo will be back at UCLA to underwhelm everybody for the next four years.

Think you guys are getting China and North Korea mixed up

In response to Reply # 37


  

          

This isn't a "celebrity," it's the middle Ball kid and two other players.

China is probably the #1 economic power in the world right now. And they don't particularly care about the optics of the situation. Especially about three kids from a country who's President has made it a habit about talking spicy about that country for the better part of two years.

>As long as he apologizes and Lavar doesn't say anything
>stupid, LiAngelo will be back at UCLA to underwhelm everybody
>for the next four years.

This part is likely true. But the Ball family and UCLA don't have any negotiating power here.

>Think you guys are getting China and North Korea mixed up

This isn't N. Korea, but it's a fairly totalitarian regime when it wants to be. And it's not exactly fearing the reprucussions of anything here.

40. "this is a national story though, right? "
In response to Reply # 39


  

          

It's plastered all over ESPN I imagine. The casual sports fan in the United States will follow the story, and you can bet if he serves jail time it will be an international story. If he was some random dipshit visiting from UCLA and got jail time it would still make headlines. But college basketball players on a sports visit? And the littlest big baller? This story is getting coverage no matter what.

I know China's big shit and doesn't fear the United States, but diplomatically speaking they have two options. Accept a sincere apology and let the kids walk as a show of good faith to the United States or punish them heavily and have every talking head on faux news yapping about how it's a slap in the face to the US. Trumps dumb ass will be coerced into popping shit on Twitter, and so starts an escalation. Not saying BBB leads to WWIII but if this is mishandled it could bring unwanted tension. China has simply nothing to gain by jailing them whereas letting them walk on China's terms shows a willingness to cooperate and not be petty.

Countries ALWAYS care about the optics in international affairs.

Ain't nothing that China could do that THESE folks wouldn't excuse.
There was a study done recently about informing white people about the statistical differences with punishments applied to.black people.
When informed of how lopsided the punishments are, white people support the punishment MORE not less

There's apparently no middle class in Hangzhou: there's either really rich or really poor, and the culture in the city is designed to protect the rich from the poor. And in this particular LV store, there are guards armed with machine guns at the door and LOTS of hidden cameras. Everything about that screams "DON'T SHOP LIFT."

So yeah, I hope for these three kids sake the store manager, owner, and Chinese Government is ready to let this slide. And if so, they need to take those three and putting them on the first plane back to the U.S.

43. "Good article from Bleacher Report about getting arrested in China"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Bottom line is: don't. And if you do, don't let it go to trial. Things work differently over there, in the sense that if a case goes to trial, there's already the presumption that the investigation is over and you're guilty; the only thing left is the sentencing.

However, the legal experts that they've talked to seem to think the most likely outcome is that the three spend 20 days under house arrest in the hotel, quietly get put on a plane to leave, and then get permanently banned from ever coming back.

That said, the article also includes a pretty harrowing story about an athlete from the U.S. working in China who's been arrested, gone to trial, and, many months later, still awaiting sentencing. And he still hasn't been allowed to contact his family.

President Donald Trump has a plan. It’ll be ready in two weeks.

From overhauling the tax code to releasing an infrastructure package to making decisions on Nafta and the Paris climate agreement, Trump has a common refrain: A big announcement is coming in just “two weeks.” It rarely does.

UCLA freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, who have been detained in China for the past week on suspicion of shoplifting, are headed back to the United States and are scheduled to arrive later Tuesday in Los Angeles, the Pac-12 confirmed.

The players were seen checking into a Los Angeles-bound Delta flight at Shanghai's Pudong International Airport, airline staff told The Wall Street Journal, who first reported that the players were heading back to the U.S.

Delta's flight tracker currently shows that two planes departed from Shanghai at around the same time Tuesday night local time, and both are scheduled to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport at around 5 p.m. PT.

Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.
