28-Year-Old Teacher and Old Man Fight over Subway Seat Spilling Blood on Floor in Guangzhou
At around 8:38am on October 7th on the Guangzhou Subway Line 4, an old man over 60 and a 28-year-old teacher fought each other over a seat. The male teacher’s head and arms were covered in blood, a part of his ear bitten off, while the old man’s nose bled from a punch, bloodstains covering the train carriage floor. The two men were released after being educated [reprimanded] by the police.
The old man over 60 is holding the 28-year-old teacher down and biting him.
The old man over 60 raised his “bloody face” for a moment, then continued to bite the young man.
Comments from NetEase:
It’s still unclear to whom the islands belong, but a seat belongs to whoever sits on it first. A seat is the same as sovereign rights. Begin defending our sovereign rights by first defending our own seats!
Sigh!! International joke!
Will standing for a little while kill you?

Aren’t you a wu mao?

Even a wu mao says something human [reasonable]… These days, truly anything is possible!
Yun… even more vicious than a dog fight… What’s wrong this guy??
Damn, this society is getting out of control. Even something like this can result in a fight [like this].
Looks like it’s just the old man holding him down and biting him~ and the young man so scared he’s curled up into a ball.
A bloody incident caused by a banana… Sigh!
Just one banana could’ve stopped the fight, do you believe it or not? How come there were no kind-hearted people to stop the fight?
Raising our citizens’ characters [level of civility] is what is the most important [task] right now [for the country].
Is biting people a trend lately?
Comments from Sohu:
Low characters, losing face in front of the whole world.
Guangzhou is more or less an international city now, but why are some people’s characters this low/poor, so much lower than us rural people? Maybe it’s caused by a lack of education.
This kind of physique, I’m in awe, at 67 years old too. Friends, I think giving up our seats to the elderly on public transit in the future is actually an insult to them.
I think nowadays the characters of the elderly are even lower/poorer, as if young people giving up their seats for them is a matter of course, without even a word of thanks! Whereas many old people will scramble for the seats and not behave in an orderly manner. If I have time, I should film a collection [of this behavior of the elderly] to show everyone!
This old man is so ferocious, even stronger than the young man, is it still necessary to give up one’s seat for him [because he doesn't need it if he's so strong and healthy]?
Old but without morality, how can he take advantage of his seniority. Young without upbringing, turns out both the old and the young are shameful.
In fact, the most detestable person [involved] is the Southern Metropolis Daily reporter. Even though he managed to film the whole incident, he didn’t go forward to stop them, and even dares to say no one at the scene stepped forward, as if he himself doesn’t count.
It’s so heart-wrenching to see this! A young person not knowing what’s proper is one thing, but being so old and also not knowing what’s proper? How would you feel if your kid was beaten like this by another person? All those years wasted. Truly embarrassing.
Today’s society promotes respecting the elderly and cherishing the young, and such sentiments keep rising, but some elderly even with good health and strength still use “respect the elderly” to boss others around, cutting in line to get on buses/subways, hogging up the seats, verbally abusing others, etc. From this Guangzhou Daily report and these photos we can see that this senior deserves morally punished. Certain seniors should also reflect on themselves. For the record, I myself am a retired person.
The old man, taking advantage of his seniority, already 60 years old yet still so barbaric, and still needs a seat? So immoral!
The young man, has no sense of shame, young and vigorous yet so rude, and can’t even beat [the old man]? So embarrassing!
The reporter, thinking himself so righteous, holds a camera in his hand yet doesn’t try to stop them, and mocks the crowd [for not helping]? So heartless!
The readers, caring for both the nation and the people, beholding and sighing yet unable to do a thing, five thousand years of spirit! Return to me!
And they talk about the old, weak, sick, and crippled… Many old people are even more fierce than the young.
Seeing this, do we still need to give up our seats to the elderly in the future? All day having nothing to do, so he goes and learns how to bite people like a dog, truly a good for nothing old bastard.
Truly an old rabid dog, better off beaten to death.
Is the elderly one a dog?
Our compatriots have guts after all, should send him to the Diaoyu Islands [aka Senkaku Islands].
May I ask, is the reporter filming this only good for eating shit?? And he even dares to say he didn’t notice anyone going forward to stop them, are you not a person yourself?
Hilarious~~~ first, it’s a seat for the elderly, weak, sick, and handicapped, and neither of them count as the elderly. The other one [referring to the old man] can only be counted as middle-aged, still capable of biting people, like a wild animal that can’t be tamed, completely unable to be associated with the weak, sick, or crippled. Second, this isn’t even a man-to-man argument where people can intervene, it’s degenerated to to a battle between wild beasts (a fight that must end with biting, so I’m afraid they can be considered tigers or lions). Dear readers, under the circumstances where it can’t be determined if he has certain mental issues, protecting yourselves and getting far away from harm is both rational and reasonable. To see it from a different angle, if you saw two stray cats fighting on the street, would you go stop them? Third, some readers immediately escalate the problem/issue to the national level and so self-righteously say, or raising themselves above their countrymen to say: Our compatriots should reflect on themselves. Self-reflection should first be done on oneself before asking others to do the same. Do not do to others what you would not have them do to you. When you aren’t yet able to be a moral example, how can you ask others to do so? Fourth, there still others who sigh about how China’s five thousand years of civilization is all for naught. Five thousand years of civilization is long, how a small and insignificant person, who hasn’t yet lived to 60s come to criticize it? Are you sure you’ve deeply fully studied China’s five thousand years of civilization? If not, go finish reading your history books before you come calling things into question. A narrow mindset that misses the forest for the trees will only expose your limited knowledge.
Old people should also learn to cherish the young. What a perverse old man!! Moreover, if he’s capable of beating someone up this viciously, bullshit should a seat be given up for you!!
Is it worth it?? It’s only a seat, isn’t it?! Would it hurt either of you to yield to the other a bit? Seeing such bloody pictures truly is disturbing!!!
