Criminal Gang Of 100 Fake Monks Strikes In China

Monks3 I wish this news went hand-in-hand with reports of a massive criminal gang of nuns in Italy. Via the Guardian:

Police in northern China faced an unexpected and unholy menace last week when more than 100 fake monks besieged their police station, a Chinese newspaper reported today.

Police from Baotou city, in inner Mongolia, told the North News that the incident began last Wednesday when what appeared to be a group of monks attacked a toll booth and escaped by bus.

Officers stopped the vehicle at a roadblock after a lengthy car chase and arrested 31 of the men – but the suspects fought back with steel bars and knives, allowing the rest to make their getaway on a double-decker bus.

The following day, more than 100 men, apparently monks, besieged the city’s Guyang police station to demand the release of those arrested.

They arrested 178 fake monks, confiscating the sticks, knives, fake medicines and fake gold necklaces they were carrying.

    Yeah, the fake Shaolin monks getting exposed for their poor martial arts skills — this I can believe. I’ve seen the real ones. Can’t fake that.

    One dude broke a SOLID 2-inch in diameter steel bar over his skull. Handed it to an audience member beforehand. Had the guy bang it on the edge of the stage so that people could hear that it was solid, not hollow or tampered within any way. Then he focused his chi into his skull and and literally thumped himself square in the head with it. I cannot begin to describe the “Pinging!” sound the thing made when it hit him, but it broke into three pieces, and the pieces dented the stage when they landed. Most incredible thing I’ve ever seen.
