When Beauties Fight Back...
Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China
A netizen on the night of the 14th (May 2011) posted online describing how the incident unfolded: “In the afternoon around 6:00, chengguan (Chinese law enforcement officers, notoriously corrupt) gave a beating to an old man selling bayberries. The old man was about 70-years-old, carrying a pole on his shoulders selling bayberries. The chengguan broke the old man’s scale, then crushed the bayberries under their feet, then pulled the old man down onto the ground and beat him. The young people who passed by could not bear it and surrounded them, shouting at the chengguan to apologize. When the chengguan arrogantly said they’d compensate 100 kuai, everyone became furious.” Photo is of the scene of the incident.
