Firstly, I hope you haven't found the title misleading. I am here to ask help on this, not to provide much information on it. I didn't know how else
to word the title without making it incredibly long and uninteresting.
Basically a few years ago I read (I think on ATS, but I can't be certain), a single post where somebody mentioned something about poor families in
China selling some of their children to bandits. This is unimaginable but it has been known to happen.
Anyway, the post mentioned that many of the "peasants" kidnapped are sold on to an organisation who provide the kidnapped to rich businessmen who
literally walk into a room, shoot the peasant dead and leave. All for personal gratification. Psychopaths at the highest echelon.
I recently started reading Jon Ronson's "The Psychopath Test" and it reminded me of this story.
Now I don't know if there's any truth to this at all, but I'm very interested again in trying to find out if there is. I have searched the net for
such stories but found nothing concrete. It's not the easiest thing to search for as most of the stories are about kidnapped businessmen.
If this rings a bell for anyone please let me know. Sorry if you feel cheated by the thread title, I'm just trying to jog some memories and do some
research but have nothing really to start with.
edit on 8-7-2012 by Scope and a Beam because: To mention I used the word "peasant" as this is
what I no doubt think upper class businessmen think of us working class. I didn't mean it in an insulting way.
