A surprising statement by a government official in eastern China's Jiangsu province has captured the attention of internet users after it was caught on video and posted online on Sunday.
If the police dont beat people, whats the point of keeping them? said an unidentified official of a complaint bureau in Suzhou. The police are the governments violence machine.
The clip of the statement has gotten more than two million views and has set off a barrage of criticism against police violence.
"He told the truth. The police are the government's thugs," a person posted on his Weibo microblog.
Police violence has been justified in China in school textbooks, and training manuals tell officers that the the police are the governments tool for violence.
The official's remarks came when a resident of an apartment building complained about the developer, according to reports. No other information was given about the incident.
The Nanfang Daily newspaper reported on Tuesday that the official had been ordered to reflect deeply, but authorities had declined to reveal his name and position.
Some observers were not satisfied with the light rebuke. Authorities just asked him to reflect? Thats it? They should conduct a deeper investigation, said one user.
Others turned their criticism to Chinas complaint bureau. The bureau has done no good for people. What is it for? It should be abolished, commented one user.
In America, they shoot your dog.
Some criminals need a good beating...
In China, they eat your dog.
Is that unidentified official now working as a M.E. in Florida?
TSVs, Tactical Sissy Vehicles.
For the Gay-stapo?
From the looks of them boys, they just don't inspire that much fear in me.
Sounds like he read Hobbes or Locke, and failed to understand them.
In the US, it is the peoples job, according the the Declaration of Independence and authorized by both the courts and the Constitution, is to resist and defend themselves even to the point of using deadly force.
That is why we have the Second Amendment written into the Bill of Rights and added into the Supreme Law of the US, the US Constitution.
Why is it that all of my kids, by the age of twelve, know that and the vast masses of US citizens don't? Could it be that we, my wife and I, teach our kids the founding documents, and others rely upon the corrupt govt kiddie kennels to do all the teaching to their "property of the USA", bundles of joy?
Your choice dads, you can watch the exciting filth on tv or you can spend an hour a night teaching your kids the Word of God and His word, the true history of the USA, along with the founding documents? Can you spare a hour a night from the tv and with your kids?
Good one! I'm going to use it.
Teaching at the high school level, I refer to schools as "practice prisons". The inmates love it.
Do those segways recoil backwards when they fire?
need new keyboard. thanks.
Still brutal, but less wasteful.
While I am nto going to tell you my name or his, I will tell you that it is a true story, both he and his partner verified it.
