    "There is very very little crime here, something i wish was the same in the US."

    Ahahahahaha.

    There is very little violent crime in China.

    Crime in general, on the other hand, is rife here, as it is in any loosely-managed country.

    That's right. Everyone in the harmonious society honors employment contracts, follows nonsmoking ordinances, obeys traffic laws, respects the environment, and pays their taxes. Prostitution is not tolerated. Law enforcement officers and government officials do not accept bribes.

    Apparently contrary behaviors are special exceptions for special people. Because China is special.

    Also, everything in history that has ever been called Chinese is the property of the People's Republic of China. This includes geographic areas and aspects of tangible and intangible culture, such as Chinese finger traps, Chinese fire drills, and Chinese checkers.

    Respect China's intellectual property rights!

    Am I missing anything?

    PALM.

    Every day.

    "dude i am talking about violent crime and gangs they do not have that here."

    Someone's never heard of the Triad. Or Chongqing. You know, that city in west China that used to have a huge problem with organized crime.

    "Organized crime is different, it does not count as street crime."

    Teach me English, Pete. Teach it to me. Teach me real good.

    If you're going to make a crap attempt at being pedantic, allow me to remind you that bribery, environmental degradation and a refusal to enforce even the most basic laws affect all of us as we "walk down the street," as you put it.

    Pete: Talk to people who live in Dongguan (Guangdong). There are violent crimes quite common. Most people who live there for a bit longer witness a violent crime at some point.

    I am not sure about the background of those violent attacks though. Therefore I cannot tell you if it comes it from proverty (the place really does look quite desperate) or fi there are there organanised gangs. Dongguan is - just FYI - the heaven of prostitution in China.

    I agree with Pete, China is a developing country, still is far from the rates of homocide, alcoholism or suicides of the countries perfectly developed. I'm sure in the coming years of prosperity, China will catch those high rates.

    From Annual epidemiological and vital statistics, Vital statistics and causes of death. (OMS) 1951-1952

    (Rates of homocide and alcoholism per 100000 Adults) Denmark 35.76% Switzerland 35.14% Finland 29.80% USA 24, 02% Sweden 20.75% Portugal 17.03% France 16.36% Italy 15.05% Australia 14.60%

    (Moronic Legal Realism answer) It depends on the type of Criminal Law of each country.
