Local constabulary gets overzealous as Chan Ho Park signs autographs

    Yes, yes, why would anyone want Chan Ho Park's autograph? Funny, haha. Considering this happened in the city where the Olympics will be, the way situations involving athletes are dealt with by the locals is very interesting.

    Some would take Henson's article at face value, that the cops were not used to seeing enthusiastic autograph seekers, and thought they were protecting. Others might say the local cops wanted to put one over on the Korean fans, certain regional political situations being what they are.

    In any event . . . . I wonder if Beijing's law enforcement is ready for and event like the Olympics? This is just a couple of MLB teams coming to town for a couple of games. Just another example of how Beijing (and China) can't seem to buy good publicity in the months eading up to the Olympics.

    Hell, why did they need all those guards? We already knew one dedicated Chinese man can stop an armored unit ...


    Fuck China.

    I love the last line of the first story in this thread...

    "No one got embarassed. Not the Chinese ..."

    Oh really? Learn from this incident and let's see if they pick up any new ideas about autographs.
