    I can’t decide if this is stupidity or a big flex. Either way, that gangster has the biggest balls in Hong Kong.

    How cool was Li Ka-shing though? When the gangster asked how he was so calm, he said it was his own fault for leaving himself open.

    When you see the kidnap of your son and the loss of $130 million as a learning point to reflect on, you must be a pretty together guy.

    For those that didn’t read the article, two years after the ransom he was executed for crimes including murder. Seems his plan wasn’t all that effective.

    Reminds me of in “The Wire” when Omar steals all of Baltimore’s incoming heroin shipment and then sells it back to the drug dealers for 20 cents on the dollar.

    It would be awesome if the rich guy told him to invest it in his own company.

    If your gangster name is “Big Spender” you may indeed need some financial advice lol
