Lazy, Greedy Chinese Killers Caught

BEIJING - A string of hitmen who repeatedly subcontracted a murder to each other -- then failed to go through with the job -- have been jailed in China.

The hapless assassins kept passing on the contract -- each time taking a cut of the cash -- in the hope that someone lower down the chain would actually carry out the killing.

But when the man with the lowest price got his marching orders, he decided instead to fake the murder -- and enlisted the help of the intended victim.


The whole farcical enterprise collapsed when the would-be target simply called the cops.

A court in Nanning heard how the original dispute erupted in 2013, when a businessman surnamed Wei sued real estate developer Qin Youhui.

Fearing a costly and lengthy legal battle that could dent his bottom line, Qin hired assassin Xi Guangan to "take out" Wei, the court said, paying him two million yuan ($282,000).


Xi, however, didn't fancy getting his hands dirty, and subcontracted the work to Mo Tianxiang for half the price.

Mo, in turn, handed the job to another would-be killer, Yang Kangsheng, for 770,000 yuan.

Yang, spotting what he thought was an easy way to make a quick buck, hired Yang Guangsheng for 700,000 yuan.

Yang Guangsheng then extended the chain to a fifth hitman, Ling Xiansi, who agreed to do the job for just 100,000 yuan ($14,000) -- five percent of the original contract.

However, Ling realized the price wasn't worth a possible life sentence if he was caught, so he decided to try to fake the murder -- and got in touch with his mark.

Wei -- the man who was by this time supposed to be well and truly dead -- told the court that he met the possible assassin at a cafe and agreed to pose for a photo where he was bound and gagged.

The photoshoot over, Wei trotted off to the police station, where officers set about unwinding the tangled tale of incompetent killers.

All five -- plus the man who originally ordered the hit -- were jailed last week, for terms ranging from two years and seven months to five years.BEIJING - A string of hitmen who repeatedly subcontracted a murder to each other -- then failed to go through with the job -- have been jailed in China.

I'm not clued up too much about this sort of thing, but would you call this ''multi-level marketing '' or a type of piramid selling.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

These guys got off very light. It doesn't say much for the deterrent effect of a sentence.

Conspiracy to murder using a hitman is one of the most serious crimes you can commit. The Police really don't like hitmen as the vast majority of murder victims know their assailant and that makes getting close to the killer an elimination process. Hitmen are unconnected and just disappear.

In the UK it will get you a life sentence, albeit it is discretionary. Once hitmen are involved it will be a life sentence with a minimum of what would have been given had the plot been carried out.

One guy got life with a Minimum of 30 years for a terrorism charge of planning with others a terrorist attack - hence conspiracy. This is why you have life sentences for conspiracy.
