What Do His Hand Gestures Mean?

 

Chen made this hand gesture 6 times during his confession which was aired by China's state media, CCTV, before his trial.

Chen Yongzhou, a journalist for the Guangdong-based New Express newspaper was arrested after he published a report about financial irregularities at a construction-equipment company called Zoomlion.

Chen's arrest sparked a huge outcry from Chinese people and also from the newspaper he was working for. The newspaper made a big effort to pressure the communist regime to release Chen, but a few days later, the chief of New Express was removed from his position.

The communist regime quickly arranged a TV "show" that showed Chen Yongzhou 'confessing' to accepting bribes, but most Chinese bloggers thought the 'confession' was the result of torture.

Chinese bloggers also questioned the following from the CCTV program:

1, Why did Chen make this hand gesture 6 times during his confession?

2, Why did Chen keep his eyes closed at all times during his confession?

3, There are 2 areas of bruising on his neck, are they the result of beating and torture ?

4, Why did CCTV broadcast Chen Yongzhou's confession before any trial?

5, Who had bribed him and why was that person not charged?

6, Why did they shave Chen's hair?

During the Ming dynasty, Wang Yanxu, a boatman from Taiyuan, borrowed one ling 8 qian of silver from a wealthy man. Wang died before he paid back his debt.

One day, the wealthy man saw Wang Yanxu, with a white band tied on his waist, walking into the cattle pen. Moments later, someone told the wealthy man that a cow had given birth to a calf. The wealthy man went to look and saw the young animal had a white line on its waist.

When the young calf grew up, the wealthy man told his cattle man to sell the animal for one liang 8 qian. A butcher bought the cattle for that price.

Later, a farmer saw the calf was very strong and healthy. So he offered the butcher 2 ling 6 qian for the animal. The calf was good at plowing and didn't need any care for it. But one day, the farmer was very sad to find the animal was dead.

The farmer found out later that the calf had been sold by the wealthy man for only one liang 8 qian. He asked the wealthy man why he sold it for such a low price. The wealthy man said: "Because Wang Yanxu only owed me one liang 8 qian."

Upon hearing this, the butcher was enlightened: "Wang Yanxu owed me 8 qian. That was why I sold the cattle for 8 qian more."

Later, the farmer also realized suddenly: "I once owed Wang Yanxu money. Now I have paid it back."

Heaven balances every thing, without the slightest error in the cause and effect. When one seems to gain certain advantages, he needs to pay back towards the end. When one harms another, one will repay accordingly.
