    XII.Guess what happened in car accidents in China

    Aspecial case was that in deep night on the 20thday of October, 2010, Yao Jiaxin, a junior student in XiAnConservatory of Music, drove his red Chevy and knocked down a girlZhang Miao on a motor bike in the same direction. The girl fell onthe ground. Yao got out of his car to check on the girl, but when hefound that the girl was still alive, and afraid that she had seen theplate number of his car and would report to the police causing himfurther trouble, he took out a knife from his car and stabbed her 8times till she had no breath on the spot. Then Yao was caught bycrowds and sent to the police station. He was sentenced to death.
    Somecases of a child ran across the street and was knocked over by a car.Generally the driver of the car should stop and take the child tohospital. But in China, no such things occurred. The driver justrolled his car again and again, backwards and forwards, over thechild till he was sure the child was dead and then sped away as fastas he could. No bystanders would interfere for fear of revenge laterby the driver.
    Anothercase was in Hangzhou City of Zhejiang province. A couple of boyfriendand girlfriend knocked over an old woman. They got down and liftedthe old woman into the back seat of their car when they toldbystanders that they would drive the old woman to hospital. But as amatter of fact, they drove to a suburb and buried the old womanalive. Then they deserted the car and escaped. At last they werecaught by the police. The boy was convicted for life and the girl gotservice for a couple of years as accomplice. Such things onlyhappened in the communist China, seldom in other countries.

    XIII.Bo Xilai Event

    1)Bo Xilai's demotion

    BoXilai is the son of Bo Yibo (1908—2007), who joined CPC in 1925 andwas defined as an old cadre. In China, people call sons (includingdaughters) of those old cadres as Clique of Crown Princes, becausethey are blue-blooded. Their fathers are newly-rising nobles in thecommunist red dynasty. Bo Xilai is one of them. He is very proud ofhis noble birth. He is always against traditions, for which he oftenhad different ideas from others, even his superiors. His ambition wasto be a party leader in the central committee of CPC, even thesecretary general. At the time, Hu Jiaotao was the secretary general,who did not like the ambitious Bo, and nor did some old cadres. Sofinally he was demoted to be the party secretary of Chongqing City inSichuan province in western China.
    OnceBo arrived in Chongqing City, he complained to his buddies like ChenGaosu, son of Chen Yi (1901—1972), the minister of foreign ministerand a military marshal, and He Guangye, son of He Changgong(1900—1987). All three were from red families. They looked down onHe Jiaotao, who came from the family of common people. They had atheory that when the fathers got the rule of the country, the sonswere the lawful successors, like emperors and their sons. They deemedHu Jiaotao as a CEO just working for the company while the Clique ofCrown Princes were real owners. So they had a grudge against Hu.

    Bowanted to do something special to show that he was a talented man.Then he summoned Wang Lijun to Chongqing from Liaoning province,where Wang had worked under Bo. Wang was a very capable and cruelman. They both had a finger in the “taking human organs alive”crime. When Wang reached Chongqing, he was appointed a vice mayor andthe municipal police commissioner. They had arrested and executed thehead of some mafias, which had won the applause of people. Then theyexpanded their action to some so-called red businessmen andconfiscated their property. By law the confiscated property should goto the local government treasury, but later, when a businessmanescaped to Hongkong, he exposed that it all went to the pocket of Bo.
    However,Bo planned something good economically, such as to let peasantsrelocate to the urban area from countryside, for which he wanted tobuild in three years 4,000 square kilometers of government-runlow-rent housing. Once peasants relocated in the city, they couldhave permanent residence registration. All his plans were to developlocal economy. His plans were called Chongqing model. He thought thathis model could solve the financial problems in China, by which hehoped that he would be chosen to be a member of the standing centralcommittee of CPC, but some party leaders did not think so while a fewsupported him. Anyway, his promotion looked promising without ahitch.
    Atthe same time, Wang Lijun, on the pretense that he needed moresupporters to deal with mafias, summoned more than 100 men that hadworked under him from Liaoning province. He also secretly recruited3,000 men as military police and police detectives so that he had anarmed force under his control. The municipal police station inChongqing became his independent regime outside the party leadership.

    2) Gu Kailai's murder of Heywood

    Gu Kailai is the wife of Bo. Highofficials of CPC often had mistresses besides the wife. So Bo hadsome mistresses, too, and ignored his wife sexually. In the earlynineties of the last century, Neil Heywood, a British businessman,came to learn Chinese in Beijing Languages University. Aftergraduation, he went to teach English to those noble posterities inDalian City, where he got to know Bo Guagua, son of Bo Xilai and GuKailai, then got acquainted with the mother. As she was ignored along time for love-making, she was thirsty for that and could notrefrain herself before the handsome British man. If her husband couldhave mistresses, why couldn't she have a love partner? Did nowadaysmale and female have equal rights? Then Bo Xilai found it out, but hecould not get divorce, nor expose it, because it would certainlyaffect his plan to get promotion to be a member of the centralcommittee of CPC by this moral defect.
    Aftera while, Heywood grew tired of the mid-aged woman and began toalienate her, and finally refused to meet her. But Gu Kailai did notgive up and bothered him by phones and emails. Heywood did not makeany answer, and meanwhile, he secretly took her money from heraccounts in foreign banks. Now Gu got really angry and decided to getrid of him. On the 15thof November, 2011, Gu let Zhang Xiaojun, who worked under Bo Xilai,poison Heywood. The police detectives went to the crime scene forinvestigation and found evidence through video data and decided thatthe murderer was Zhang Xiaojun. So they reported to Wang Lijun. Wangwas a sly man. On one side, he followed the instruction of Gu tocremate the body of Heywood to cover the crime, but on the other, hecollected proofs of the murder, like the hair and blood sample ofHeywood. He had them for forensic analysis in writing.
    Accordingto Gu Kailai, confessed when cross-questioned at court, Heywoodkidnapped her son because they had economic dispute. That was why Guwanted to kill him. At first, Wang Lijun had a part in the murder andeven suggested to induce Heywood to Chongqing and kill him on theexcuse that he was selling drugs. But afterwards, Wang withdrew fromthe action, and Gu had to do it herself. However, this was her sideof the story. Since Heywood was dead, his side of the story couldnever be known. At length, Gu was sentenced for life. This case wasexposed by Wang Lijun when he went to the US consulate, or the publicwould never know it.
    Withsuch hard evidence in hand, proving Bo's wife's murder of Heywood,Wang went to see Bo and asked for more benefits and higher promotion.Bo Xilai was not a man to be threatened to agree to unreasonabledemands. Therefore, he removed Wang from the dangerous position ofthe municipal police commissioner and let him work in education andhealth department. This meant demotion. He summoned the meeting ofmunicipal party committee to make this decision on the 2ndof February, 2012, but the mayor Huang Qifan disagreed, saying thatsuch a decision must be approved by the Ministry of Public Securityof the central government. Bo could not stand any objection and wasinfuriated. He just threw his tea glass towards Huang, who left themeeting room. Other committee members all signed their consent on thedocument.

    3)Wang Lijun went to US consulate in Chengdu City

    WangLijun was very familiar with the way of Bo's action. He felt anupcoming threat to his life. He want to escape from it. He madecareful plan and preparations. On the 6thof February, with the help of his friends in the police station, hegot the permission to go into the US Consulate in Chengdu City.
    Onthe way there, he changed cars four times to escape from pursuit andassassination. Once he had to hide in the deserted car having trafficaccident and let his friend drive his car to mislead the pursuers.Another time, he had to make a detour round the toll booths on foot.His friend drove the car through the toll booths and then he got intothe car again at a safe distance.
    Hereached the consulate about between 1pm and 2pm next day, accompaniedby the vice director of the police bureau of Sichuan province. Hewalked into the consulate hiding among the consulate personnel, whichhe explained later that he had seen some strangers standing by theconsulate building with hands in pockets. Their posture revealed thatthey carried guns.
    Onceinside the consulate, he talked with the commercial attaché and toldhim the murder of the British businessman Neil Heywood by Gu Kailai,the wife of Bo, who wanted to kill him, because he had cracked thecase. Then he produced a slip of paper written on it his request ofpolitical asylum, which stunned the consulate officials present. Thesituation was that soon after Wang entered the consulate, the policeforce from Chong1ing City sent by Bo under the command of the mayorHuang Qifan were surrounding the consulate. They came in seventy carswith the intention to arrest Wang. Meantime, the consulate reportedthe incident to the US embassy in Beijing, which reported to theadministration in the United States for instructions how to deal withthis emergency. The consulate was told not to grant the request ofpolitical asylum.
    MayorHuang Qifan came to talk with Wang Lijun and wanted him to surrender.But Wang said that he would only surrender to the central government,not to the local government Chongqing, because he knew clearly thatonce he went to Chongqing, he would soon be killed secretly. Then HuJiaotao learned the incident and ordered Liu Qibao, the partysecretary of Sichuan province, to let provincial police forcesurround the police force from Chongqing. Then Hu called Bo andinsisted that Bo should withdraw his police force. Bo had to accedeand called Huang to beat a retreat.
    ThenHu sent Qu Jin, a vice minister of Ministry of State Security, totake Wang to Beijing. Now Wang Lijun was safe, out of the reach of BoXilai. And now Bo feared that Wang would expose all the bad things hehad done. Thus, Bo not only lost the chance of promotion, but alsohis life was at risk.

    4)How Bo Xilai ended up

    Withsuch fear, Bo went to visit the 14tharmy group, of which his father had been the commander. This wasreally a bad move. Central party leaders would think that he wantedto launch a coup d'etat. So Hu Jiaotao sent his vice chairman of thecentral military commission of CPC, to warn the high-rank officers ofthat army group not to do anything wrong against the Party.
    Hisbuddies, Chen Gaosu and He Guangye, learned the incident, and advisedby Zhou Yongkang, the head of The Central Politics and Law Commissionof CPC, went to Chongqing City to comfort Bo while discussing how todeal with the situation. Zhou Yongkang wanted Bo to calm down firstsince it was the time that the term of Hu Jiaotao would soon be atend and Xi Jinping, who is also the son of an old cadre, belonging tothe so-called clique of crown princes, would take over the power.
    ChenGaosu thought that Bo was too rash to make such a decision to removeWang from so important and powerful position and urged Wang to takethis exasperate step, which gave Hu Jiaotao a very good reasonagainst Bo Xilai. It looked like Bo put the noose on his own neck.Anyway, their discussion brought up another decision that they had tostruggle against Hu Jiaotao to the end, even to make the coup d'tat.

    Firstthey let the mayor Huang have an interview with the Phoenix New Mediain Hongkong and deny that Huang had sent seventy police cars tosurround the US consulate in Chengdu City. It was a rumor spread bytheir enemy (implying Hu Jiaotao). He said that he rode only in onecar with three others. He said that since one of his vice mayor wentinto the US consulate, as the mayor, he had the responsibility to gothere to take his vice mayor back to Chongqing. He also said thatphotos on websites showed the police cars, which belonged to Sichuanprovince government, not to Chongqing government. What he said was achallenge to the province police, who made a declaration to refuteHuang. All this happened just before the opening of the NationalPeople's Congress. Hu wished to keep the safety and peace before theconference and so he sent He Guoqiang to see Chongqing delegation inBeijing with the real intention to warn Bo Xilai not to interferewith the opening of the conference, but Bo refused to comply with it.On the contrary, he boasted of his Chongqing model and said that Huwould go to Chongqing to affirm his achievements while Hu didn't havesuch an intention. As a matter of fact, Bo wanted to put Hu in anawkward position and do what he desired, which actually made Hu andother members of the standing central party committee furious.
    Atfirst, on the 16thof February, the central party committee already decided to give Boonly party discipline, like a warning fr something, not to the legallevel. Now on the evening of the 13thof March, Hu held an emergent meeting and proposed to remove Bo fromthe position of the municipal party secretary of Chongqing City. Outof nine members, eight of them gave their pro votes except ZhouYongkang, who gave his con vote. On the morning of the 14thof March, the day that the conference ended, Bo Xilai was arrestedand put in confinement. On the 15thof March, Xinhua news agency made an official declaration to relieveBo Xilai of the post of the party secretary of Chongqing. On the 25thday of October, 2013, Bo got the verdict for life.

    5)3.19 event

    ChenGaosu and He Guangye always had a deep hatred for Hu Jiaotao. Itbegan when the trio worked in the central committee of the ChineseCommunist Youth League. Chen and He despised Hu for his common birthbackground while they were very proud of their noble blood. Moreover,Hu got promotion after promotion while they almost stayed in theposition of the same level. They never blamed themselves for theirinabilities, which was the typical Chinese character. They neverexerted themselves to do better than the one they hated. They justwished to make the one they hated fall from high position to wherelower than their own posts so that they could laugh at him.Ridiculous?
    AsBo Xilai was under custody, Chen Gaosu and He Guangye went to seeZhou Yongkang to instigate him for another attempt of coup d'tat.Zhou, as a member of the standing central committee of CPC, in chargeof The Central Politics and Law Commission, had the command of thearmed police. Since Zhou was a supporter of Bo Xilai, when Bo was outof power, the situation might develop unfavorable to him. Chen and Heknew it and they wanted to persuade Zhou to use his armed police toattack ZhongNanHai, where the party leaders lived, and disposed of HuJiaotao. It was on 19thday of March (3.19), 2011.

    HuJiaotao, as the chairman of CPC, of the military committee, and ofChina as a nation as well, had his own way to get the information. Hesent for Xu Caihou and Guo Boxiong, both the vice chairmen of themilitary committee of CPC. Another vice chairman, Xi Jinping was awayfrom Beijing at the time. With the support of Xu and Guo, Hu orderedthe 113thdivision, belonging to the 38tharmy group, to maneuver to Beijing immediately, together with the 6thtank division and the 8thregiment of the air force. Once they arrived in Beijing, they shouldsurround the buildings of Ministry of Public Security, of theheadquarters of the armed force, and of the 8thBureau of Ministry of Public Security. Then they should wait forfurther order. At the same time, Chen and He was having an urgenttalk with Zhou in Zhou's office in the building of The CentralPolitics and Law Commission.
    Justthen, an officer of the armed police came in to report that theirbuilding was surrounded by some divisions from the 38tharmy group. They knew that Hu acted faster than they. They werehopeless now. Zhou detained Chen and He. Zhou would deliver them toHu as he did not start his coup d'tat yet. He would let Chen and Hebe responsible for it. Meanwhile, he took He's advice to call JiangZeming, the ex-chairman of the military committee of CPC, to reportthis, as he was deemed as Jiang's man.
    Therewas an agreement when Jiang retired from the post of the chairman ofthe military committee that if Hu wanted to take any military action,he must get the ascent of Jiang and Jiang had the right to say NO. Sonow he called Hu and advised Hu to withdraw the army. Hu and Zhoushould make explanations to all this happenings at a special meetingof the standing central party committee. Hu had to comply with Jiangand the event thus ended. Later, Zhou was put in confinement, too.
    Asfor Chen Gaosu and He Guangye, at the request of Jiang, Hu pardonedthem. If Hu insisted on punishing them, he might offend the so-calledclique of Crown Princes as a whole. Now Xi Jinping took over thepower and became the chairman. He may still conceal the coup d'tatand accuse Zhou only of his other crimes, such as taking bribes.
