Heís already out on bail, which apparently is pretty unusual in China.

The average Chinese citizen would still be rotting in jail but probably not unusual for a "foreign celebrity".

You really donít know much about China, do you? 

And are you implying that in places such as the US police do not put shoplifters in jail?

Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

My understanding is that LiAngelo will have to stay in China at least a month while this process plays out.


I'll give Green Faith one thing.....does anyone know where Big Baller Brand is made? China? Vietnam? Taiwan?

I wonder if China has any version of probation or parole

According to this article from the LA Times, officials have a bit over a month to decide whether to formally arrest him, and if they choose to do that, two additional months with which to file formal charges (which would result in a trial).  But the process can move more quickly.

I'll say this, though -

I apologize.

I took CelticsElite bait and went somewhere with a Trump conspiracy that I should NOT have done.

It was foolish.

With THAT being said -

 How much would it cost to smuggle him home Illegally. Maybe you could send him home in a shipping container.

 Can you FedEx him Overnight??

This is about as dumb as it gets.   I wonder if he ever heard of Otto Warmbier?  Granted it was China and not North Korea but the same thing could have happened.   This kind gets a Blue Ribbon Medal for idiocy.  His dad is worth 4 million go ask him for some dough.  Hard to believe, eh?

lol I doubt that there's ANY truth to this, once everything comes to light.

Is there any evidence to believe it’s not true?

China is one of the most visited countries in the world. Tourism is a big part of their economy. I don’t think there’s a huge motive to fabricate this, but time will tell.
It's probably not true, Chinese people are the worst to have around you, the claims are probably fabricated by some money starving shop (as an HKer I hear about this stuff a lot, eg. if you help a woman who "fainted" on the road you're probably gonna get charged for "stealing" her imaginary stuff/sexually assaulting her), but the good thing is that Chinese courts are very complicated...imo with the Ball family getting so much media attention, some under the table money would get Gelo off scot free.

my parents are HKers as well and I do hear a lot about these also. With that said, I am also on the line of, these kids are playing ball in China with their school, so they are pretty well represented . I think the chances of this story being fabricated is not likely even given the relationship between the US or China. China is not a 3rd world country, it's booming in economy and is a huge tourist destination, I don't believe this has to do with that. Even if that was the case, I would assume this to happen to a nobody or regular tourist and not a student athlete.
I think it's very possible, the stories that fly around about Chinese people doing literally anything for money are well documented and the kids being well known only helps them to get a bit more dough. Btw it's not the Chinese gov I'm talking about, it's the shop that got "shoplifted".

Lol you are kidding, right?

For any issues the US justice system has, China is far, far worse.
