For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Man Rescues Drowning Family Who Then Leave While He Drowns

Young Man Drowns Saving Family of Three, The Rescued Leave Saying It Has Nothing To Do With Them: To save a family of three from drowning, 27-year-old Deng Jinjie jumped into the river without regard for personal danger. However, he ran out of strength and was soon swallowed by the rapid river and drowned. Just as Deng Jinjie’s life was in danger and whether he was alive or dead was unknown, the rescued family of three chose to leave. A witness says: When the crowd stopped the family of three from leaving, the woman said “none of my damn business” before driving away. Sanxiang City News

Seriously, what's wrong with the world today? Lately I seem to find more and more news where the helpers end up screwed those whom they helped. 

I don't know who is at fault for this desensitazion, I assume that there is a complex answer some where, but I have so say it: I  officially lost my hope for  society in general and for Chinese society in particular.

Any ways, if you want to keep on reading you can find the whole news over here

To my understanding, some citizens have a set of innate virtues, while others don't, this is a genetical or biological difference, not a cultural one. That's why any society throughout history consumes a great deal resource to transmit them. In China, nowadays, the problem is that the propaganda made by the ruling hierarchy on good values has become more and more discreditable as long as no effective stimulation-and-punishment system has been put in actual use. So you can only account on people doing good, not doing evil, only morally.
