Shocking: Chinese teenager sells his kidney for an iPad 2

17-year-old Chinese boy Zheng liked the iPad just as pretty much every tech geek out there. But being seventeen means you don’t have your own money. Combine this with a mind-boggling local advertisement offering cash

There are evil people in this world, and this kid went looking for them. They didn't just call him up and talk him into it. He call them up, negotiated his price, sold his kidney and he got what his iPad they stupid way. The buck stops there. The doctors should go to jail, and his mom should kick his butt!

Are you realy sick? Yes he saved a life Very good, but the fact that he sold his kidney means his intention was not to save a life but to have some material benefits from the selling of his organ. I am disappointend in the medical staff whom agrees with his actions, the goal does not justify the means! (or wait was it the other way around)...

Oh so now you are neighbors with this kid that you just know him too well and what he's going through? Lol. He could've killed someone to steal their ipad, or, he could've robbed someone of their ipad, but he didn't. He did it in a supposedly legal way that he knows how. Maybe desperately overboard, but he didn't commit a crime against anyone to get what he wanted. Not saying that what he did was totally ok, but, i blame those adults more who took his kidney w/out his parents consent, than the kid.

Don't I WISH he lived in my neighborhood. If this boy lived in my area, and pulled this stunt, we'd stick that damn ipad so far up his ass that he'd have to blow his nose to get a WIFI signal. Jeebus, why? REALLY, WHY????

And you think your actions are better than this kid's? You're ghetto.

I am convinced 530gemini is the resident troll or the resident Apple troll...

Just saying it how it is. You see the kid's vanity, but did not care to notice those adults who took his kidney. Why? Because he wanted the ipad, not the xoom :)

And like a prototype troll....you assume I must jerk off to Android cuz I dont approve of what this kid did...
62. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
I don't care what you jerk off to.
You don't approve of what this kid did, but again, you're just letting those adults go for what they did with this kid. When they're the real criminals.
Come on, you could care less if this kid was dead. All you care about is, you can't take it that this kid favored the ipad over something else :)

Yea....you are a troll 100%...and shows I wasted my time replying to you.
You know so much about me, are you a stalker?

And you're a typical, hypocrite, fandroid :)
Pretending to be moral advocates, when it's really about hating on Apple and its users. I am right. You could care less if this kid died a year ago. It's his choice of device that irks you :)

This kid did not commit a crime. Those doctors did. Some kids kill and steal for drugs. For me that's dishonorable, not this one. You should be ashamed of yourself :)

The real shocker here is not the kid selling his kidney for an ipad, but those doctors who took advantage of him.

You are right 530gemini. What the doctors did to him is wrong. What he did is not a crime. But his decision to sell his kidney is just senseless with no concern about his family or even himself. Not that i wish that something happens to his other kidney. But what if it does? He doesn't even have the money to buy an ipad. So if anything happens to health, what will he do? His life would be at risk. Does an ipad worth this risk? I don't think so..
78. 530gemini (Posts: 2198; Member since: 09 Sep 2010)
That's the thing. Kids don't see beyond the decisions they make. They're kids. They don't know any better. This is an unfortunate event. I feel sorry for the kid that he did not get proper parental guidance, and that those doctors took advantage of him. Kids get themselves into trouble all the time. Drugs, crime, pregnancy, abortion, etc. Here's a more modern one. A kidney for an ipad. This kid thinks that the ipad is such a big thing and is worth giving up a kidney, just like a 6 yr old girl thinks that a Barbie doll is everything. This kid needs a lot of understanding and guidance, like most kids do. Let's not be too judgemental with this kid, but I totally despise those doctors. I hope they get caught and arrested. They're the ones we need off the streets. Kids aren't safe around them.
