Who says crime doesn’t pay? After breaking every law imaginable, he went straight to FENG-DU, the Chinese Hell. YEN-LO-WANG, the God of Death, was shocked at his blatant naughtiness and booked him into every torture chamber available.
But then SONG-JIANG spoke up. "You may think I was evil, but all the bureaucrats in my province are ten times worse. I was only following their example." He then proceeded to give names, places and dates.
This evidence convicted many high-ranking officials and filled FENG-DU’s punishment zone to overflowing. The Gods were most pleased, gave him a free pardon and elevated him to deity status.
Thus by becoming an informant and supergrass, he scammed his way into the job he now holds. The perfect crime.
