Weird cultural story of the day:  Chinese parents admit chaining their 24-year-old son to his bed for stealing

Den Wen Yuan revealed that his son, Chuang had brought embarrassment upon the family, leaving him with absolutely no other option but to tie the numbskull to his own bed. A heavy concrete block, attached to a chain and tied around his neck, Chuang was subject to his fathers harsh repercussions for his sons actions. Wen, 47, elucidated that if he had not acted now, his sons problems would have exacerbated, leaving him in jail. “It isn’t exactly a large community here, when something is stolen everybody knows who is to blame,” he said. “I always had to compensate my neighbours and apologise for what he had stolen if I couldn’t return it and I just got fed up with it.” Wen stated that his son will be released eventually, but only when he is ready and prepared to be a member of the community.
Sucks for you, Chuang. Stop stealing and maybe your dad will give you a cookie or something like that. This should be a strong reminder to all of you to be earnest, law abiding citizens.
