A "disabled man" begs on a street in Zhengzhou, on Dec 19,
2011. But wait, he is a healthy man in reality. He even showed
a Dahe Daily reporter how he pulled off the disabled act. He
rejected an offer of a possible job as a security guard, with a
monthly salary of 1,500 yuan ($237). "I would not do it even
with a salary of 8,000 yuan. I’m quite free living this way.
One or two hours of begging each day would be enough to support
myself. I can’t stand constraint, you cannot understand," he
said. he can earn 50 to 200 yuan a day, he added. [Photo/CFP]
