NewsChina - - NETIZEN W@TCH -

Yang Long, a driver in Zhongjiang, Sichuan Prov­ince, re­cently trig­gered con­tro­versy by at­tempt­ing to raise money on a fundrais­ing plat­form for com­pen­sa­tion he thought he might have to pay af­ter be­ing in­volved in a car ac­ci­dent. The fundrais­ing page was closed af­ter he raised 20,000 yuan (US$3,077), but also trig­gered an out­cry. Although traf­fic po­lice have not yet ap­por­tioned blame to those in­volved, op­po­nents be­lieve that it is ridicu­lous for a char­i­ta­ble plat­form to help those who might have com­mit­ted a crime. Many ne­ti­zens called on the plat­forms to con­duct tighter su­per­vi­sion of crowd­fund­ing or­ga­niz­ers.
