Stunning Images Of Chinese Riot Police Training For A "Working Class Insurrection"

Tyler Durden's picture


The US may be celebrating the HFT-rigged, Fed-manipulated S&P500 hitting Goldman's year end target of 1900 8 months early, but China has other concerns. Such as this photo series, courtesy of NYT's Chris Buckley, showing police in Shenzhen in full riot gear, training for what many say is inevitable: a working-class insurrection, or as calls, it "emergency disposal operations."

Via, captions google translated:

May 11, heavy rain, the Shenzhen Municipal Public Security Bureau carried out emergency disposal operations training activities. Participating in the training team for a variety of different emergencies riot synthesis disposal training.

Maybe Chincom needs to see the movie "world war Z". 1.2 billions hungry zombies can not be stopped.
Beside how long can the formation last, a few hours at most, while the hungry zombie can loiter around for days, swarming gorging on human flesh. And what will these cops do when they see their loved ones being attacked right in front of them, break formation.
Anyway, Tibet will soon be freed.

i was with you until you said tibet will be freed. 


no, when push comes to shove the communist party with arm all the han chinese and unleash them to exterminate the rest of the tibetan natives. 

tibetan culture and written and eventually spoken language will be wiped off the face of the earth. 

why is this?


have you looked at a map? tibet is one of the most strategically significant set of mountain fortresses in the world. 

once you conquer tibet, you don't give it up. it is the high ground of ALL CENTRAL ASIA. 

yes yes, please tell me about how air superiority and space superiority have changed historical warfare strategy. 

i know this. but still, when you own the best fortress, one caontianing vast water and mineral resources , on the border of the soon to be most populated country on the planet (india) ------then you don't just 'give it up'. 


the dali lama so much as admits to being and agent of the west. prior to world war 2 the british were trying to make inroads into influenceing tibet and succesfully negotiated some treaties for control of land. 

the very existence of disputed 'areas' between india and china north or bangladesh have their roots in these british line drawing efforts. 


i'm not 'defending china' per se. just pointing out that your perceptions of their behavior are totally framed by the prio colonialist attitudes towards those areas. 


china and inda have proven themselves self sufficient in so far as they have nukes and have stable governments. they do not care for dealing with hypocrytical western empire cultural judgement. they don't need to pay it any attention anymore for much of the yolk of western domination has been lifted, though not all.

I'm sure they won't break formation when a russian cocktail lands on top of that formation.

From that earlier mob slaughter of those other cops, this is not going to end well.

These types of forces work well for people who want to hurl rocks and burn tires.  Typical riot stuff.

Not sure how well it will work out when the riot police are the target.

Or, the rioters could construct some kind of chariot to ram the the police.  I don't know where they would find horses since I think they sold most of them to Europe as hamburger.  Maybe technology will provide an alternative very heavy fast moving vehicle that can deal with stone age shield walls.

Why confront the riot police at all when sabotage, assassination and t e r r o r i s m against your foes would be be safer for the insurrectionists and probably more effective? Don't do what they want and expect and have prepared for; work like the resistance in France, in small, independent and completely separate cells, where no one knows the identities of those in the other cells or how many cells there are so that the capture of one cannot bring down all. Let the cops know you know where they live, where their children go to school, where their wives shop, what bar they like to frequent.

Have you ever heard the phrase propaganda of the deed?

"We must spread our principles, not with words but with deeds, for this is the most popular, the most potent, and the most irresistible form of propaganda." - Mikhail Bakunin

Sounds like the Divine Right of Kings, from medieval history, all over again.  The Mandate of Heaven.  The idea that the victor in any given struggle has received divine help (a variant of 'If you're not with us, you're against us' and 'If you can't beat 'em, join 'em').

It wasn't unusual for armies a couple hundred years ago to defect to the other side, after losing a battle.  Engineers especially!

Bakunin wanted to destroy the state, to literally burn it down and not rebuild it. To claim he was not an anarchist would require a very idiosyncratic definition of "anarchism" and/or an utter lack of historical context. That was my point, not that violence is a required practice for anyone calling themselves an anarchist.

In the USSA, such training is not needed. Law enforcement gets plenty of on-the-job practice shooting into crowds of bystanders.

Those Bama cops really overstepped their bounds.  The proper response would have been to shoot the suspect 23 times and let the coroner fish around for drugs.  It's called separation of duties, this is more of a union matter.

Don´t get why they always seek confrontation with the armed riot police guys. As my old physics teacher use to say (he was a bit odd i have to admit) it just needs one whole generation to refuse to go to work, refuse to consume, refuse to drive and buy stuff. just sit on that green hill and smoke something and wait. make sure it is summer though. makes it more fun then

Pretty sure the average Joe Chinamen don't read english, that the shields read POLICE is desturbing.

In the end it is futile training, as the U.S. Army found to its dismay at the chosen reservoir. 1.6 billion people cannot be stopped.

I really would like to understand the psychology of the police. How is it that in all these countries they can find people to be police and put down demonstrators like this? Don't the police see and live under the same conditions as the protestors? I guess a paycheck goes a long way toward compliance...

The folks who take those jobs are usually either 'goon types' who join for the same reason certain people here are drawn to law enforcement. But many others do it for the money, and in situations like this often prove to be a weak point. Many change sides when TSHTF (like in Ukraine) because they refuse to fire on their own.

That's why these troops are often sent to areas they don't know. Ethnic or religious differences are exploited as well whenever possible.

Yep, send them to a foreign land, w/  a foreign language, and 'train' them just enough to follow orders, but thats it.    The military has always recruited from the poorest segment of the population.

Part of the training is desensitization. They stage "riots" with professional "rioters" and the cops learn that it's okay to inflict damage on people. When the real day comes they've gotten past the hard part.

I saw a UTube video of riot cops in the US being trained to kill unarmed civilians and to make that easier they used make-up to have the "targets" look like zombies. So yeah, I'm killing zombies ... in business suits and pushing strollers. Yeah that's easy I can do that. Zombies -- sure let's roll.

I wouldn't want people like that living in my neighborhood. I mean the cops, not the zombies.

Dude Klingons are cool. They can maraud me any time, I hear that's just how they party.

Since they started it, the cops can be zombies. Under that face shield is the mindless flesh-eating undead unworthy of sympathy. Only the husk of a former human, we can expect neither emotion nor mercy from them, only to have our faces ripped off and our brains eaten, and our tiny children stomped into bloody puddles.
