Apparently, sixteen people had been arrested the week before, for alleged financial fraud. To commit such an act, these five must have been absolutely terrified. If there is one thing that the Chinese Government controls it is all the banks and corporate finance. Step on their toes and you are in really big trouble....HSBC you recall was fined billions just recently for findings that signified corruption. That is the national bank for Shanghai and Hong Kong, which is now under total Chinese control. For one person to attempt suicide under such circumstances could imply an imbalance of mind but for five people to attempt it suggests that the balance of their minds was only too entirely intact and that the consequences they knew they faced were so dire that to join forces was the only way they could find the courage it would then take to end their own lives. It could also have been the only means of public protest they felt they could impart, before dying.
Buddhist monks frequently self-immolate in public in protest against China's draconian methods of dealing with Tibetan monks.

One major problem with stocks and shares and the trading thereof, is the complete disconnection between the abstract world of "dealing" like a real-time game of Monopoly and the reality of the ordinary everyday world of LIFE.
