I am above the law.
Despite what the bureaucrats and judges say, you too are above the law. The trick, is to know that you are. As the old GI Joe cartoon used to say, "...knowing is half the battle".
A character of fiction, a William Wilde Curringer, once stated:
"People - pardon me, journalists and politicians - have often accused me of believing that I'm above the law. And yet, who isn't? Everywhere you prod it, even with the shortest stick, the established system isn't simply corrupt, it's unequivocally putrescent. The law is created by demonstrable criminals, enforced by demonstrable criminals, interpreted by demonstrable criminals, all for demonstrably criminal purposes. Of course I'm above the law. And so are you."
Apparently one Zhang Xuping in China took those very same feelings to their logical conclusion of free-market justice. He stabbed the local criminal chief, Li Shiming in his heart, putting him down like the dog he is. I have absolutely no sympathy for Li, or his family.
Unfortunately Zhang was captured, and he apologized to Li's family while in court. Li's eldest son naturally rejected the apology. The good thing is, his rejection wont get his vile father back.
Screw the Shiming family. I raise a clenched fist in honor of Zhang Xuping.
