Furious Chinese Rioters Beat Corrupt Policemen To Death

Tyler Durden's picture




 

It appears, based on these extremely graphic images, that the Chinese people has a different way of dealing with corrupt officials. As Shanghaiist reports, a riot involving around 1,000 people broke out last Saturday in Cangnan county of Wenzhou city, Zhejiang province, resulting in the hospitalization of five chengguan, China's notoriously abusive and under-regulated urban enforcement officials. The alleged cause for the riots was the five's brutally killing a civilian. According to reports, the chengguan "hit the man with a hammer until he started to vomit blood, because he was trying to take pictures of their violence towards a woman, a street vendor." This man later died while being rushed to the hospital. Given the following images of civilian retribution; is it any wonder, the powers that be in China fear social unrest?

 

[Background: Chengguan is a name given to the City Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau, a municipality police that exists in every Chinese city. Chengguan are notorious for their brutality and generally hated far and wide for it. Their purpose is to enforce municipal bylaws, but they like to resort to violence and often use it against those with no means to fight back.]
The incident began...

Recently, a man noticed Chengguan abuse a local female vendor in Cangnan County of Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province, and pulled out his cell phone camera to document their notorious brutality.

 

Chengguan didn’t like it and since they enjoy almost limitless impunity, they had the man hit in the head with a hammer.

 

 

The man was taken to a hospital where he succumbed the following day.

As Shanghaiist reports,

The following report by SCMP describes what happened immediately after the five's act of violence:

 

"Angered by their violence, the crowd surrounded the officials and prevented them from leaving the scene. The tension further increased after internet rumours [sic] began circulating that they had beaten an onlooker to death.

 

 

Eventually the officials were forced to seek refuge in a van, according to eyewitnesses at the scene. Members of the crowd carrying sticks and stones then smashed the van and assaulted them through windows, they told South Metropolis Daily."

 

 

According to eyewitness accounts, the crowd -- which was growing at an alarmingly rapid pace -- was shouting for the chengguan to be murdered on the spot for what they did, yelling: "Kill them! Kill them!" They proceeded to beat the five until they were bloodied and unconscious, and later collectively tipped over the ambulance that had arrived to provide medical treatment.

 

 

Source: LiveLeak

 

But this is not the first time...

This incident is yet another chapter in the seemingly endless saga of both chengguan brutality and corresponding civilian backlashes: The sentencing of just a few years in prison to four chengguan who collectively killed a watermelon vender in July 2013 incited widespread protests on Weibo, while a villager poured sulfuric acid on 18 chengguan in Xiamen just a few months prior. Just one month before the Xiamen incident, the execution of street vendor Xia Junfeng for killing two chengguan also sparked public outrage, with netizens comparing the severity of Xia's sentencing with the arguably unfairly lenient suspended death sentence of Gu Kailai for confessing to the murder of British businessman Neil Heywood.

As LiveLeak concluded...

This is the inevitable consequence of letting the public to lose faith in the law enforcement and the justice system, especially when dealing with wrongdoings of government officials. There are other nations headed down the same path.

2016 election will be a ho-hum affair compared to the Constitutional Convension due to Michigan recently becomming the 34th state to call for it. The $$$ will be a flowing of gold like we have rarely witnessed; seeing as how Corporations are now "persons" and seeing as how the ORIGINAL 13th amendment was ratified in 1819 and has never been printed except for a few old books, which the COUNTY GRAND JURY proponents have in their possession and then of course the 14th amendment that was never lawfully ratified and is also provable.

There ull be a big time in the ole town tonight. Guarantee it. We have a chance to right a lot of wrongs--either with or without guns. Who knows what 2016 is going to look like. My guess is not too cool.           Milestones

One of the reasons the US is so tame by comparison, is because there is always the option/possibility of voting out the offending sheriff/city council people, and replacing them with someone who will hold the cops accountable.

When that formality does not exist, and the courts don't work, then violence is the only method of accountability. A means of peacefully venting civilian anger is a bedrock requirement for any society.

Almost forgot, it needs to be productive venting. About once every 50-60 years we have had revolutions (1788, 1860, 1912, 1968), and the later ones have been a relatively peaceful turnover of authority (i.e. no civil war). We are clearly due in for another one, so I certainly hope the process works again. Otherwise, there are plenty of historical examples of disorderly collapses following too much debt and taxes.

Looks like the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the (fed, irs, WW1), and the war on poverty.  Realistically, in three of four of those a major portion of the populace got fucked HARD and they all featured illegal federal encroachment on the Constitution; preceded by the Revolutionary War which led to it's creation.  Yet I bet only one in 100 sheep could identify when any of those events occurred or the surrounding circumstances. I think there is another term for the 3 of 4 which which describes events throughout history and it is not productive venting. 

Call me a cynic.

Your cynicism is well founded in History.

Even a casual review of the following events would lead to a conclusion that the USSA population has become fat and sullen in its view of RIGHTS.

King William I in 1066 (Revolt of the Earls)

King Henry I in 1100 (Charter of Liberties)

King John in 1215 (Magna Carta)

King Charles I in 1628 (Petition of Right)

The Grand Remonstrance 1641

The Glorious Revolution 1688

The Bill of Rights 1689

All of these events had revolt as their foundation.

They all led up to the Declaration of Independance and were among the foundational documents for the US Constitution.

don't know why so many downvotes, I guess it is the skeptics that don't believe elections will fix anything.

The last sentence is the truth, though.  When the courts become a joke and the grievences of the common man can not be adressed, then violence becomes his only alternative.  It's happened hundreds of  times in the past, and will happen again.  So, a +1 and a -1.

1. As inspiring as it is to read a Thomas Jefferson quote like that, it is also ironic that they are not applied in the US, where they need to be applied the most these days.  It's like "the pot calling the kettle black", to borrow another quote.

2. It should not be surprising that this is happening in China now.  The US and its USD and USTs absolutely NEED chaos in the BRICS, lest they succeed in breaking away from the Dollar hegemony, and create their own regional reserve currencies -- currencies that avoid the USD and the BIS, and create a new global trade order.

WW3 has already started.  It's started as Asymmetric Warfare as follows: It's already happening at the economic and monetary level and is entering the social unrest level -- in the hopes of weakening the target countries and its leadership enough to either prevent a hot war, or to shorten/limit it, should Total war ensue.

Plan accordingly. 

p.s. I suggest that you don't get sidetracked by smarmy, witty comments ("wit candy"), whose real consequences are that you just have a quick chuckle, rather than thinking deeper.

these food vendors provide a valuable service after hours when restaurants are closed, and tons of people use them (including myself numerious times). never figured out why the gov't employ thousands of people just to harass them

They are not PLANNING these new districts - they are being built right now.

Every city of greater than 10,000 people is increasing in sized +50% and the bigger cities of 100,000 to 500,000 are ripping up huge sq kms of the city that are from the late 70's and early 80's and constructing vast fields of hi-rise tower blocks where vast fields of crops formerly grew. Villagers from a few hundred metres to 3kms away move to these new 'cities' - though they are very small cities.

New Town, New City, New District they are called.

Imagine Downtown Vancouver (with the identical 32 storey apartments and condos)...stretching to Regina. The train from Shanghai to NanJing shows the future landscape of China.

Um, there's a small disconnect in what you're saying. If those people were all living before, where exactly were they living? Aren't high-rise towers a more efficient (lets leave desirability and livability out of the equation for now) way to pack people into space?

So taking vast numbers of people from small, single family dwellings (huts) or low-rise flats, and cramming them into high-rise towers should FREE UP space for crops, not consume it.

Of course in the USA the cops are really soldiers, and the USA is an occupied country, just like Palestine.

I would say in 90% of the world, the cops fear the people, only in the USA do the citizens fear their COPS.

The beauty of the USA is that the 'cop' came from
the 1890 pinkertons, by the corporation for the
purpose of breaking union.s... Today the COP has
morphed into just a MAFIA protecting courts and lawye3rs.

Actually, it was the copper buttions on their uniforms, but I digress....

Anyone who has lived outside the US would say, until recently, that we are the only country where you could trust the cops.  Everywhere else they are essentially bribe-takers.

The Chinese are more free than the Americans.

"Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose"

When you have the relative wealth of FSA Americans, and compare that to the poverty of urban Chinese not in the big coastal cities, it's not surprising. When they're going to take away the very little you have, you fight back. When you still have your iPod, Obamaphone, Netfllix and SNAP card, you shut up and take it.

I have been unable to find corroboration to back up my recollection but...... I recall back in the late eighties early nineties or so during the fall of the Warsaw pact regimes one country had massive rallies planned which would have overwhelmed the authorities resources and likely led to draconian measures and likely bloodshed but some genius in the regime got the bright idea of broadcasting a porn-athon on the state run TV stations - as I recall it worked like a charm most of the men stayed home and the rally fizzled; no doubt giving  enough time to loot the coffers and get the hell out of dodge before the menfolk rubbed themselves raw and came back fighin'.........

I heard this from a Radio news broadcast but have never been able to find evidence on the net....... even if it's BS still sounds like it would have worked ...... before the internet and all the free  ............... hey........I just ......... that's where x-hamster came from .......... those globalist bastards......

Maybe.

I'm not so sure we know how to interpret this.

Here is my guess.  The crowd was completely prudent.  They killed or harmed the five who were the abusers, but did not harm anyone who came later [without cause].  It could be as simple as that, and my guess is, likely was as simple as that.

But absolutely for sure, everyone in the west needs to take a lesson in prudent (albeit somewhat too slow and hesitant) behavior from this event.

PS:  Also note this.  If those thugs coming later understood what happened, I image they were not very anxious to start abusing anyone.  Were they?

No, the riot police will go gently at first.  The local party boss will face charges to show that the corruption is being dealt with and other henchmen will face punishment.  Meanwhile the ringleaders in the photos and videos people will be arrested and executed.   It is the modus operandi of a state incapable of reforming itself.

The showdown about releasing the cows was a setup.  BLM agents were sent there to be slaughtered.  They wanted collateral damage too, because they didn't get innocent bystanders off the highway.  Sherrif Gillespe sits on the board of the SPLC and the DHS.  We're very lucky things didn't go down as planned.  Maybe the infiltrator had his gun taken off him by the militia? 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilDfAqDNUe4

They will try again.  The people must be very wise.  We have to let everyone see that the predators were the first to do something mostrous.  Even the thickest dudley do-right has to understand that he is on the wrong side.  Then the predators will start having logistical problems.  It would also help us if the spark comes after the dollar has collapsed and everyone's pension is obviously stolen.  Then the predators will loose the support of many sociopathic minions too.  Power trips are nice but they don't pay the bills, and soon clownbux won't pay the bills either.  Oldschool looting will have to pay the bills.  Which will piss off more people, etc, etc.

One you combine public exasperation with the power of flash mobs and the Second Amendment, you realize that the ability of the police to harrass us is just about null. This is a foretaste of the politics of the future.

I'm guessing we'll soon start to see an organizing meme emerge in the more reactionary corners of cyberspace, perhaps even in the aftermath of the Bundy Ranch farrago. Flash Mob Militias, or something to that effect, with mailing lists, instant alerts, and maps.

Revolution? There's an app for that.

Sadly...

That should be correct, but is not.  Yet.

What is missing "to nullify the predator's ability to harass us" is... what is NOT missing in this specific case, namely "willingness to fight back".

This "willingness to fight back" comes in two flavors, "direct self-defense" and "indirect self-defense".  In direct self-defense, you take actions to defend yourself.  In indirect self-defense, you take actions to defend anyone being abused by others.

To defend an obviously innocent individual is a form of self-defense.  Why?  For three reasons.  Number one, by identifying and eliminating predators, you remove from the environment those predators who will (or may) soon come after you or your family or your friends and/or your/their property.  Number two, by helping defend another individual, you signal and encourage that individual to help you defend them (to participate in their own self-defense when they might otherwise not).  Number three, you raise the probability that others will come to your aid.

And yes, there really should be apps for revolution.  Quick and overwhelming response is an extremely wise and effective technique... if enough people "get on board".  Also note that numbers alone are very helpful.  Even if only 1% of a crowd are willing to physically defend someone, the large numbers cause predators great fear, and make them unable to guess what directions deadly attacks might soon strike them.

This is the proper (if a bit too lenient and hesitant) way to deal with predators, especially "official predators" who regularly abuse people.  As I have said many times in ZH, predators of all species should be treated the same way.

The predators in Nevada were a bit wiser, and ran for their lives before they found themselves in the middle of a bloodbath.

Hopefully in the future people all over the world do not hesitate so long before they eradicate known predators.  The time for such behavior is long overdue.  In fact, self-defense should never have gone out of style.

There is still time for the elite to provide some real leadership and justice but that window of opportunity is closing.

Nor can they believe this time that they will be able to appease the people with just smoke and mirrors and new stooges at the helm.

Despite much anxious rhetoric, the Communist Party is not on the brink of collapse, but the anger it generates among the people and how party members actions are so at odds is it with the ideals the party espouses. Still it appears that China's leaders are in no mood for serious reform.

While it has not yet derailed China’s economic rise, sparked a social revolution, or deterred Western investors, it would be foolish to conclude that the Chinese system has an infinite capacity to absorb the mounting costs of corruption. The article below delves deeper into the issue of corruption in China.

This is the inevitable consequence of letting the public to lose faith in the law enforcement and the justice system, especially when dealing with wrongdoings of government officials. There are other nations headed down the same path.

 

 

I think you will find that the US authorities are not worried and will believe that simply using greater force against the pubulic will fix things. So if there are riots and chaos...just start shooting a few, use APC, drones and the like to maintain control.

However what all these failing regeims forget is that when people are pushed to the limit fear of death leaves them, being overcome by anger, especially in large crowds.

 

Rather than deal with the failing inequitable US justice system, the corrupt application of it when it comes to favoured elite, but prosecuted mercilessly for trivial matters when it comes to the general public......rather than deal with this..TPTB will believe in greater force...has they do when dealing with foreign countries.
