In China, if you want to get medical scare ... ( :-) care, you have to stand in line and get a registration number. Scalpers have made it a big business. They stand in line for you and sell you the numbers. The game came to an end recently. Scalpers selling registration numbers at major hospitals, escorted by police officers undergo a public trial in front of a hospital and a jeering crowd in Beijing December 13, 2006. Nine members of a scalping gang, headed by Lan Huimin and Yuan Hongwei were found guilty of racketeering and affray and given chastisements ranging from four-year to ten-year sentence in prison.
Taking advantage of weak and sick people is just plain old sick. It's good to hear that these culprits have finally been brought to justice.
