John murders prostitute to ‘teach her a lesson’

Posted: 07/13/2012 1:00 pm

Late last year, four people were arrested in Harbin after being accused of robbing and murdering 10 people, including eight prostitutes. Now a practitioner of the world’s oldest profession has been murdered in our neck of the woods.

A Guizhou man has been sentenced to death by Guangzhou Central Court after he stabbed a prostitute to death, Southern Metropolis Daily reports. After the sentence was announced, Wang Mingping explained that he was just trying to teach her a lesson for the immoral behaviour of prostitution.

On May 18 2011 Wang went into a corner shop and bought a fruit knife claiming that he needed it to cut fruit while working a night shift. Early for work, Wang decided to pass the time by amusing himself with a prostitute. He went to a narrow lane in the city’s Baiyun District where there were seven or eight ladies of the night. He offered 60 yuan for one and went off with her.

After they had had sex, the prostitute turned her back on him and began to get dressed, casually throwing the condom away.

“After putting on my clothes, I suddenly realised that I found this prostitute to be a hateful person,” said Wang.

Wang picked up the fruit knife and wrestled the prostitute to the ground. While she struggled and screamed he stabbed her in the stomach. A passerby heard the screaming and started banging on the door. The prostitute was still breathing, so he slit her throat.

When the door was kicked down, Wang fled. The prostitute, Ah Hong, was still alive when the police arrived, but she had lost too much blood to be saved.

After Wang was caught, he initially claimed that he did not intend to kill her, but was trying to teach her a lesson. But the evidence became irrefutable when it was shown that he slit her throat when she was still screaming for help.


15 year old dresses in schoolgirl uniform to solicit sex, says “anything better than being poor”

Police arrested two teenaged girls – one of them only 15 – in Foshan last week after they found the girls soliciting sex, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily.

The two girls wore uniforms from the local technical school in Sanshui District and reported to their 23-year old female ringleader known as “Hei Mei”.  The girls both admitted they were ashamed of their profession, but had no other source of income.  They said they could demand a high price if they went out dressed as school girls, with one of them saying “anything is better than being poor”.

This isn’t the first time young teenaged girls have been found soliciting sex.  A similar case was reported in Shanghai last fall.



Tiger Woods in Dongguan for golf? Suuuuurrre he is…

Alas, we will try not to get into too many Tiger Woods jokes on this page. But it’s just so easy…

The former golfing guru is ostensibly in our fair city to promote PGA golf, but really, with his background and proclivity for ladies of the night, is there any more natural city for him to choose?

Tiger was questioned earlier Tuesday by reporters about his performance at the Masters, in which he finished a respectable fourth. But primarily, he’s here to promote his chosen profession. From the Canadian Press:

Woods was conducting a clinic for junior golfers later Tuesday before moving onto Beijing and then to Seoul, South Korea. He was impressed with the growth of golf in China, and predicted that Chinese golfers will break into the top 50 in the world.

“It’s been really neat as a player who has come here for a number of years to see the development of the fans and their knowledge of the game and their enthusiasm for the sport,” Woods said. “These fans are certainly much more knowledgeable now.

“The growth of golf has been just incredible. A lot more kids are coming out to events whereas when I first came here that wasn’t the case.”

Tiger was actually in Shenzhen 10 years ago, which marked his first visit to China.

If you want to read some Tiger Woods jokes (we’ll admit, many of these are kind of lame) you can find a bunch of them on the Tiger Woods Jokes website.

If anybody has photos of him out and about in Dongguan, be sure to send them over. Especially if he visits the Chang’an Century Kangchang Hotel.
