Chinese Teenagers Beat Up Elderly at Jiangsu Nursing Home

Chinese teenagers get into a fight with the elderly at a nursing home in Jiangsu province.

From Youku:

Immoral youth frequently use violence, lack of social education undermines dignity of the elderly

Post-90s generation [youth] cause trouble at elderly resting/nursing home, even beating up old people, human flesh search them!

The young man in blue kicked the thin old man and said: “Then how did you find me?”

The thin old man: “Tonight I’m going to your father’s.”

The young man in blue throws yet another kick: “You go then!”

The thin old man goes back into the room… comes back out with something that can’t be seen clearly in his hand.

The young man in blue says: “Hit me! As long as you dare to!”

At this moment out rushes a heavier old man, who viciously pushes the young man in blue and angrily shouts: “You’re out of line now! [gone too far, out of control]”

Then the 4 of them people began blah, blah, blah…. Blah, blah, blah.

The heavy old man: “You truly are out of line!”

Vaguely hear the thin old man in the back saying to the other one: “You be rude again, you be rude again!”

Can hear the heavy old man say the words “Instead of learning from the good……”

The rest can’t be heard clearly… the scene was a little chaotic, and I’m not sure who said “come, let’s fight and see.” The heavy old man walks down the steps, points at the young man in blue, “come, come, come, come down here and fight.” The two of them circle each other once but don’t fight. The heavy old man then walks up the steps, says to the other young man: “Tone/attitude! (I think it was that word)” The young man says: “Mind your own business!” Then the heavy old man replies with something that can’t be heard clearly, and the young man says: “Don’t fucking lecture me!” The heavy old man then “pia!” slaps him. The young man in black, not to be outdone, hits back and the two of them began to fight. The people around them: “Enough, enough…” (During the fight, the heavy old man falls from the top of the steps directly down onto the ground below, this part is truly heartbreaking, sigh~)”

From NetEase:

2 teenagers beating up elderly at nursing home explodes online

Summary: recently, a video called “Post-50s old men battle post-90s kids” widely spread on the Internet. In this video, several old men were beaten by 2 teenagers, with one of the old men being viciously kicked after falling on the ground. Netizens claim the 2 teenagers were caught stealing at the rest home by the old men and were beaten after saying they would tell their parents. Afterward, the main young man, ostensibly after being human flesh searched, posted online saying, “I’m not only going to beat up old men, next time I’m going to beat up the old women too.”

Recently, a video called “Post-50s old men battle post-90s kids” was uploaded to video sharing websites, and quickly spread. In the video, two kids unbelievably beat up old men at a rest home in Jiangsu Province Changzhou City. Angered netizens started quickly launched a human flesh search, with one of the suspected young men unbelievably shouting on weibo that next time he’ll beat up old women for everyone to see.

A ghastly sight

Teenagers viciously beating up elderly at retirement home

In this 3 minutes 20 seconds long video titled “Post-50s old men battle post-90 kids”, a teenager in blue and a teenager in black have an argument with an old man. The teenager in blue continuously lands a few vicious kicks on the old man. Then, another old man steps out of the room, pushes the teenager in blue away, and the argument goes on.

Shortly after, from a voice in the video: “Come, let’s fight and see”, and the conflict went up to the next level, the teenager in blue grabs the old man and pushes him down the steps, the old man landing on his back, the two of them tussling with each other. Then the teenager in blue joins the fight, using kicks and punches, landing heavy blows on the old man’s head and torso, the scene shocking. The people around were all old and weak, wanting to help but unable to do anything.

Angry human flesh search

Incident took place in Changzhou

“I can watch anymore!” “Animals, strongly request a human flesh search!” For several days, all kinds of sensationalistic subtitles were added to the video as it spread, arousing netizens’ collective wrath.

“Some netizens judged from the accent in the video that this incident took place in Jiangsu Province Changzhou City. Yesterday afternoon [March 29th], on Changzhou’s local forum ”Hualong Alley”, some netizens familiar with the incident revealed that the two teenagers were residents of Jiangsu Province Changzhou City Dongan County. They were caught stealing at the convalescent home that day, and the old men said they would report it to their parents. The two teenagers then had the old men beaten.

The suspected perpetrator

Blusters will beat up old women next time

Yesterday afternoon [Mar. 29th], The suspected-teenager-in-blue from the video had his QQ [instant messaging service] and weibo discovered and revealed by netizens, his Q-zone [homepage] and microblog were soon “taken over” by netizens. This reporter found on his microblog a self-photo uploaded last November, and that this netizen who was born in 1991 resembles the teenager in blue.

This teenager soon changed his microblog account name to “Don’t need a reason to beat you up”, and posted: “I’m not only going to beat up old men, next time I’m going to beat up the old women too.” The netizen who human flesh searched the teenager out also told this reporter that he himself was threatened by this person yesterday [March 29th].

Yesterday afternoon [March 29th], the Jiangsu Province Changzhou City Wujin District Public Security Bureau’s official microblog “Wujin Police” posted an announcement saying “The Changzhou Wujin police has attached a high level of importance to the ‘post-90s beat up post-50s old men’ video spreading on the Internet today, and has launched an investigation based on the video and information provided by many netizens. The police will strictly handle this matter in accordance with legal procedure while providing step-by-step public updates of the ongoing investigation.”

Netizens’ heated discussions

The lack of social morality education

Apart from the cursing to let out emotions, some netizens have begun calmly analyzing [the incident], with many people believing it shows how today’s society lacks moral education. Netizen “yuman0102” pointed out: we exaggerate the effect of school moral education too much, and ignore the importance of social moral education. The TV and the Internet are flooded with violent content, and both have caused the moral education problems among the young generation.

Comments from Youku:

planetHz:

Haven’t even grown pubic hair yet and already dare to mess with grandpa! Truly overestimating oneself/being reckless! Just what kind of education are kids receiving these days? So bad-tempered, and parents don’t discipline them?

梁晴天:

Simply lowlifes and scumbags. When talking about this kind of people, the first ones to be blamed should be the parents who didn’t educate them well! Do these people treat their own parents like this? Well, this kind of people can only be called animals. Don’t know where their school education went! Went it into a dog’s stomach [didn’t learn well at school]! Just cursing them makes my mouth feel dirty.

Justin俊俊:

Two retards beating up the elderly, as if they’re so NB. I wanna say, the one who shot this video is also a garbage.

别叫我耶稣:

Hehe, I am post-90s, and after watching this video I think all you guys who say post-90s this and that all day long are those who have accomplished nothing in life and log online to attack other people to gain a sense of self-righteousness and nobility. This video shows the moral corruption of a few individuals, and is definitely not the true reflection of all post-90s. Even though I’m not that kind of noble post-90s, but the common sense of respecting the elderly and loving the young is something I think the vast majority of people understand!

879860246:

Chinese education is no good… there’s nothing to say. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be like this. Look at those foreign countries, would this kind of thing ever happen there?

老子坏坏:

So way out of line, even daring to hit old people. Society nowadays has no sense of respecting the old and loving the young. Guangzhou child gets hit by car, bystanders indifferent, now beating up the elderly. I really don’t know what use there is to only studying math, physics, and chemistry without improving human character. Nowadays, the whole society’s collective character is being twisted and warped. Everybody knows what the problem is, but still firmly fix their eyes on money!

混沌施法者:

People have provided the address online, so I’ll go beat him up during Qingming Festival. I know beating him up is breaking the law, that there’s police, that it isn’t my place, but I want to.

○絯缁●:

Just one look and you can tell have no future, are scumbags, the shame of society… Having interacted with people so much, I prefer dogs. Why do I say this? Because dogs will always be dogs, but humans sometimes are not human.

我们都爱7号:

You can all stop spouting off now. They’ve already peacefully settled the matter with the old men, so no need to keep spouting off about it. Go screw them somehow if you’ve got what it takes, otherwise just go home and sleep [give it a rest].

河南a最棒:(responding to above)

Finally, someone who is a little smart. Those who JJYY [唧唧歪歪 ji ji wai wai always gossiping and commenting] all day, making themselves sound so righteous, so angry, about how much they want to do something about it, what exactly can you do? Nothing but tapping a few words on the internet? Go wash yourselves and go to sleep, fengqing.

    Little yobs. This happens in England everyday. Children need to be disciplined more not less!! Speaking from my sofa!

  • K

    Woohoo sofa :)

    • Dennis

      So close, yet so far =P

  • Don

    sofa, did i get it?

    • Don

      I guess not:(

  • DonnieD

    So very wrong and extremely sad

  • Bruce Tutty

    This is a problem, when when so many were killed by the authorities to create the current ‘perfect state’?

    The news items at the bottom of this for me are..

    1. Six Harbin police beat to death university student
    2 Elderly Communist Revolutionary evicted, home demolished.

    So it appears that this youth is merely mirroring the way China is ruled, so when things like happen it is the youth’s fault, or his teachers?

  • mr. weiner

    I can’t believe those little wankers actually filmed and posted this vid. And the little blue pansy arse [who keeps trying to do shite kung fu kicks] actually had the stupidity to say he’d beat up old ladies next!?
    This is why I kinda of wonder if it is real or not? You be the judge. Unfortunately I think it probably is real. I wonder if any of the old guys are old enough to be Korean war vets? Probably wishing they had a PPSH to teach the little pricks some manners.

    • Brett Hunan

      Seriously. I wish someone was there to beat their asses.

      I’ve seen old people do and say a lot of ignorant, and sometimes just plain mean shit, but never once thought about hitting them.

      This probably happens in tons of places, but this time, its from China and it made it to the internet.

      I guess if the netizens got together it wouldn’t be hard to find both of ’em in Changzhou.

      • donscarletti

        I very rarely see disgusting and abhorrent behaviour from Chinese youth. I think in general they are polite and well mannered, I have never seen groups of under 20s swearing and brawling in Shanghai or Beijing.

        For the older generation, people in their 50s and 60s? Well, many of those who have sunk so low they have no face, spitting, living in filth and saying stupid, ignorant things, as they say: 死猪不怕开水烫. I blame the cultural revolution for teaching them no sense of dignity or self respect. Many older Chinese are quite good, it is only a minority that is vile, but it is more visible than punk kids on the street.

        • Michael Smith

          I agree, I have been in China for about 8 years and have found the young people to be friendly and well mannered. With so many people in China it is easy to find these types of incidents that do not represent the Chinese people.

        • 平凡人

          China is big, what you have seen does not represent all. In the country side and the poorer regions, parents are so busy making money that they have no time for their children. Many of them have believe that giving them the best they can is the right way to bring up their child. With the one child policy, kids are spoilt. Many of them stop schooling at a very young age and refuse to do low level jobs, thus stealing and robbery to them is easy cash. Travel to poorer cities and hangout in internet bars in the night, you will see them. Well as for older people, again there are good and bad; nothing to do with cultural revolution.

        • Brett Hunan

          (Let me preface what I write below- I think kids everywhere are the same. They are all stupid and most are unable to make decisions based on weighing the outcome. Again, they are all stupid. Every last one. No exceptions.) AND, old people everywhere are conservative, unwilling to change.

          Now to where we can debate a little. I find the Chinese youth to be polite as well….. in front of you. I could put together a bunch of examples to support my generalizing statement, but it would probably all be in vain.

          Besides, Beijing and Shanghai are not like other places in China. Although you may think they seem similar to other Chinese cities, I can assure you the people behave much differently. Even the country bumpkins change when they get to BJ and SH. They have to if they want to cut it in that kind of environment.

  • hooots

    This shit is so ridiculous. What do you expect out of the kids when their grandparents were the same ones beating down old people by the truck load back in their day?

    Wake up China. Teach your kids some fucking respect.

    • cc

      Teach them basic manners would be a start, but what can you expect from a nation of spoilt brats

      • jiayi

        Most Chinese are polite enough but I’d say the younger generation is a lost cause. It’s like what Generation X kids went through in the 90’s did but now they have iphones, lime Lamborghini’s and ‘compensated dating’. Their entitlement culture even surpasses that of the US and that is really quite scary.

  • Gay Azn Boi

    Well…..the old guy DID throw the first punch (at 1:42 of the video)

    • Nanjing

      He didn’t throw a punch, he slapped him

      • rollin wit 9’s

        was a b!tch slap too.
        reminds me of the Rick James – Charlie Murphy skit on the Chappelle show haha

        • Appalled@everything

          Cocaine is a hell of a drug

    • staylost

      Little smurf kicked first.

    • John

      Are you hot?

      • Gay Azn Boi

        Me?

  • Hello

    Children have to have their asses kicked when they are kids before they become this kind of DIRT!!!!
    And moderator….. could you please put a like and dislike button… is that possible?

  • CND Icehole

    The older one hit first. Males are males, if you are above the age of pubic hair, and you strike first, expect a fight.

  • jiayi

    Give these cocky twats 30 days in any US state penitentiary and I assure you, your tight little Chinese assholes shall be no more.

    You’ll be shitting through the eye of a needle for years to come.

  • staylost

    Haha! Little blue punk kicks first, then his buddy in the black jacket gets owned by a 70 year old on the pavement.

    It is like one old guy vs. the two ‘lil criminals, and the old guy almost comes out with the hand raised.

    Chinese youth are a lost cause, I agree. If they can’t be polite, sucks to be them, because they’ll get owned by a geriatric.

  • Appalled@everything

    Seeing the older gent take a fall like that and still be the one on top when the dust settled was pretty satisfying. All those people standing around and yet not one security guard? Nursing home my ass. What a joke.

  • ChineseFighter

    i want to learn how to fight like those ppl, they are so cool

  • parachute them over somalia ala “Hunger games” and let them try picking on some man-eating somalis

  • Dogbert

    If Chinese males had balls, they would step forward and protect the oldsters.

    • Bill

      “If Chinese males had balls”? How exactly do the actions of a few represent the population as a whole?

      • Appalled@everything

        Because as a whole, the male population of China are gutless cowards.

        • Bill

          That’s a pretty bold generalization. Do you have any proof?

          • come here and see it yourself

          • Bill

            I have been to China, and while the actions of these perpetrators are despicable, I don’t see how you can make a generalization about over 600 million different individuals. Everyone is different. These generalizations are just offensive and demeaning.

  • notorious

    kid to old man:
    One thing I could never stand is to see a filthy, dirty old drunkie, howling away at the filthy songs of his fathers and going blerp, blerp in between as it might be a filthy old orchestra in his stinking rotten guts. I could never stand to see anyone like that, whatever his age might be, but more especially when he was real old like this one was.

    Old man in blue to kid:
    It’s a stinking world because there’s no law and order any more. It’s a stinking world because it lets the young get onto the old like you done. It’s no world for an old man any more. What sort of a world is it at all? Men on the moon and men spinning around the earth and there’s not no attention paid to earthly law and order no more. Oh dear land China, I fought for thee and brought you peace and victory.

    Kid punches and kicks old man.

    Old man to kid:

    Oh-hhh!!! Go on, do me in you bastard cowards. I don’t want to live anyway, not in a stinking world like this.

    • mr. wiener

      Been reading a bit of Clockwork orange hmmm?

      • notorious

        lol that was one of the messages in the book (and the movie) yes? about the young being out of control and then the moral ethical ramifications of reforming criminals by force? Kind of like China’s reeducation camps. That movie seems very apt given this topic.

        • Appalled@everything

          The only message I got was the the old ‘in and out’ and a bit of the old ‘ultraviolence’ is good for whatever ails ye’.

  • Harland

    …and if a foreigner had intervened and beat the shit out of the little snots with some UFC moves, the outrage would be ‘imperialists oppressing us Chinese” and the foreigner would be human flesh searched. Money raised for the kids’ hospital bills, the old man saying, “I’d rather get my ass kicked than win like this.”

  • Dogbert

    I never met a Chinese man with balls. They are a bunch of LV purse carrying pussies who spit when they talk.

  • Dogbert

    I never met a Chinese man with balls. They are a bunch of LV purse carrying pussies who spit when they talk. Show me one with balls. It will be refreshing.

  • Regina.

    Oh my god, Chinese people are the worst fighters. I can’t even explain what they do. It’s some weird shuffle thing where they grab each others shoulders and just push back and forth, and maybe kick a few times. The worst is the way they “punch”. Instead of cocking the fist back and then thrusting it forward, they bring it up and down like a hammer. It’s the funniest shit.

    • notorious

      I agree regina. they need to bring kung fu back

  • lonetrey

    Honestly, if I was there, I’d be beating the shit out of them myself.

    • Appalled@everything

      all of them? even old grandmother at the end?

  • Nas

    Yup this is chinese people a lack of respect and manners to other people as well as the older generation.. and still they act like they are all that better than other countries.. chinese ppl need to learn respect

  • Christina

    they hate themselves and take it out on others.

  • rick

    appalling

  • typingfromwork

    Fuck these little shits.

  • bert

    People like this need to be taken out and shot, whether it be in China, the US or Albania. Liberalism be damned!

    Of course, I don’t know what these old guys were doing back in 1966 to 1976 :P

  • notorious

    I don’ tknow if I want to suggest fighting lessons or what is going on but none of those people in the vid could throw a punch. My 14 year old could have beaten up the whole group. And I wouldn’t even mention my 16 year old who runs the mix martial arts/fight club at his school (they even youtube the fights every week). I taught my sons how to fight when they were tiny but I also taught them to use it for good. they would not be going around beating up old people. there is a disconnect between youth and adult in the lives of these kids and hence, their resentment and blackheartedness. they do not respect authority because authority has given them no reason to respect them.

  • Fman

    The toughest Chinese kids I have ever seen yet!

  • xres625e

    how sad

  • manusan

    Chinese Teenagers Beat Up Elderly Red Guard who beat up his teacher in cultural revolution.

    • bert

      Exactly! But you should change “beat up” to “killed” for the Elderly Red Guard.

  • Jane Feng

    Put aside the lack of social morality education first. To be honest, i feel encouraged by the power of citizen journalism which is enchanced by the popularization of technical advance such as SNS and mobile phone camera. In the past, perpetrators like the protoganists in this case would escape from public criticism and legal punishment if the police fail to ferret them out. Today, common citizens who have a mobile phone with a built-in camera are capable of shooting what they witness and report it to the general public. That makes public opinion unprecedentedly effective and overwhelming, and leads us closer to the so-called “citizen society”.

  • Zero1

    Im surprised that the old men put up such a good fight. You can clearly see the younger guys are big pussies. One of them even got over powered by the older man, and one of his young buddies there stepped in and kicked the old man. The younger guys are weak.

  • ukman

    Disgusting they need a dam good beating the animals beating down on little old people what nasty humans i hope the police charge these rats and the one filming.
    If that was anyone i was with beating old people i would have protected the elderly.
