    Why can't people just hold onto their tongue until AFTER the games are over? I dislike when people try to take advantage of this situation due to China hosting the Olympics.

    Because timing is part of the strategy. Imagine this happened 5 months from now. Nobody really cares much about people getting arrested in China (if people cared and knew stories they would be protesting too, lol). The only reason this piece even got media attention is because the Olympics is happening and people actually have their eyes focused on China. But yeah, some are still things through rose-colored glasses....

    Anyway, being deported is so much better than staying there in their jails.

    It's fucking China, you know freedom of speech doesn't mean anything over there.
