Good. You can keep them. Hopefully they will get 3 years in prison. That is how they treat criminals in China.

They were just trying to feed their family. Institutional racism has left them no choice. After they become successful they will stop their life of crime. It's got nothing to do with their culture...really. :lol:

LaVar Ball, father of one of the accused, LiAngelo Ball, commented on Twitter:

LaVar Ball said, "I'm going to wait until I get more intel on what's going on" before he comments on LiAngelo Ball's arrest but said he's not worried. "He'll be fine," he said. "Everyone's making it a big deal. It ain't that big a deal."

3 to 10 years for grand larceny is a pretty big deal.

Bill Walton apologizes 'on behalf of the human race' over UCLA shoplifting in China

Washington Post ^
Nov. 11, 2017
Matt Bonesteel

UCLA and Georgia Tech finally played their season-opening college basketball game in China after nearly a week of drama surrounding an alleged shoplifting incident involving three Bruins players. UCLA great Bill Walton, who was doing color commentary for the ESPN broadcast, wants everyone to know that the school and everyone associated with it is very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very sorry for all of this.

Very.

"I am sad, disappointed and embarrassed. This is a very big deal," Walton said as the game tipped off late Friday night on the U.S. East Coast. "The noble purpose here has been stained. Our host, Alibaba China, the people, they have been better than perfect in everything. They've done everything right to make this all work. Now members of our family have displayed an appalling lack of honor, a lack of respect, a lack of decency by doing something in someone else's home that they would never do in their own. And I want to apologize right now on behalf of the human race for this travesty."

I think Bill Walton is an absurd left-wing wacko and I'm not surprised by his comments but I wonder how far he wants to go with this and saying that this is not behavior the players would engage in at home sounds kind of breathtakingly naive to me.

I remember him from the SLA days and when Portland won the championship. (I happened to be passing through the city coming home from a run as the last game ended. Very memorable) Sometimes he makes pretty good sense.

A company I do business with recently hired a Chinese young lady and I can't be more impressed. To say that she's smart and hardworking and a problem solver extraordinaire doesn't seem an adequate assessment of just how talented I've come to see her as being. Oh, and I think she's hottie to boot.

But she's not an American Chinese, she's a Chinese Chinese, straight from China and she speaks excellent English. And she "acts" very much like an American only maybe better.

I asked her how she got here (to America) and she said she has family here.

Anyway, if China is full of people like her, OMG, no wonder China's come so far so fast

I think he was admitted to but don't know if he matriculated through Stanford Law School.

So, yeah, I agree, he can say some interesting things.

It suddenly occurred to me this creates a whole new meaning for "BIGotry", LOL.

Maybe in this case it should be "smallotry"...

LaVar Ball (born October 23, 1967) is an American businessman and media personality, who attracted widespread public and media attention in 2017 after making a series of incredible claims concerning the careers of himself and his sons. -----https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaVar_Ball


Yep, pretty incredible, LaVar, hope you're proud.
