Don't play so high and mighty. Surely brawling lawmakers are also commonplace in China (but perhaps if one photographed them one would be executed). Certainly government perpetrated fraud and corruption are the standard. And we've all seen the images of the govt killing and otherwise brutalizing citizens at Tianamen Square and otherwise. And it's common knowledge that China's system of justice is anything but just.

Taiwan's lawmakers are a joke, but at least the people can vote them into or out of office and the media can report freely on their childish antics.
