The media can expose something, the people may be arrested, but there is often no sound in the end about how they are sentenced. I hope the reporting can follow this to the very end, and give justice to the victim.

Now that this has made it to the headlines [or front page] of NetEase, which gets several hundred million visitors as traffic, and under the scrutiny of everyone, shouldn’t the local criminal police think that they should do a certain something? Are they [the police] going to die [refuse to do their job] for a ruffian? Or are they going to live [do their job] for the entire country?

阿狗46 [网易天津市网友]:

“They’ve had the city contact the town, and the town contact the department, so there’s nothing we can do about it either.” [This is a detail in the full article about how various levels of government have delegated the matter to lower levels.]
The have the province dispatch people to ferret out and severely punish the people at the city, town, and department level protecting them!!


It’s obvious that there is something wrong with the girl too! Why would the girl chat with the nearby people [referring to an instant messaging feature that allows you to chat with a random nearby user]? Why did the girl go out people to play just because they drive nice cars? Who is to be blamed for being tricked into unlawful intercourse? First look to yourself for reasons!

Dumbass! When they are under 14 years old, no matter whether or not they are willing, it is all considered rape!

网易广东省广州市网友 ip:121.33.*.*

Chemical castration is required in this.


The student [girl] had no self-respect [or wasn’t careful/prudent].

wuguoxuo [网易湖南省株洲市网友]: (responding to above)

Please read carefully: They are all young girls under 14 years old! I hope your younger sister or daughter will always be safe, because if they are sexually assaulted, it will all be blamed on “having no self-respect” [or not being careful/prudent].

专打装逼精 [网易江苏省淮安市淮阴区网友]:

Public commentators have said that cracking down on rapists is violating human rights. Only in a dark and shadowy society can there not be murderers, rapists, and black society [organized crime, criminal gangs]. In a bright and illuminated society, these are elements that necessarily exist. Whoever dares to severely crack down on murderers, rapists, black society, black lawyers, and ignorant and incompetent people, well that is called persecution and remaining evil elements.

These kind of people should’ve been caught long ago. Otherwise, these little girls will grow up and be like [the prostitutes in] Dongguan. [The government] needs to take care of our women. Severely punish them.

Shandong Police Publish Sexually Assaulted Girls Investigation Report: What The Four [Accused] Did Does Not Constitute Crime of Rape Jinan July 7 report — This journalist learned from the Shandong Dongping Propaganda Department that police have reported on their investigation of the incident involving girls being sexually assaulted. The report concludes (1) The current evidence show that there was no force involved when Huang Defeng, Huang Dewu, Lu Daogang, and Zheng Longcai had sexual relations with Jiao XX, that Jiao X at the time was already 14 years old, and thus what Huang and the other three accused did does not constitute the crime of rape. (2) Lu X had the intent and behavior to rape (unsuccessful) Xie X, and has is suspected of the crime of rape.

All the sons of government leaders/officials, so of course it wouldn’t constitute the crime of rape!

盛满金 [阿根廷球迷]:

Even thugs/hooligans are able to drive BMWs and other good cars, talk about having good future prospects!

网易北京市网友 ip:223.223.*.*

This case is being judged incorrectly. Clearly this is a young girl who has taken the wrong step in life [a bad girl] who has seduced good youths [the young men], who has made a false accusation after failing to exact wealth from them. The judgement is as follows: Several youths did a good deed in reporting a wayward young girl, and shall be rewarded with a BMW each, while the wayward girl criminal shall be fined and required to compensate two BMWs for the crime of entrapment and extortion/blackmail. This judgement shall go into effect immediately, to be immediately executed.

The door to the government yamen [feudal government office] opens to the south, those with just cause but not money should think twice about entering.

网易重庆市网友 [我报道亩产万斤不算造谣]:

Didn’t someone at the city level delegate [that this case should be investigated], so how come there is no report?

被和鞋 [阿根廷球迷]: (responding to above)

Other than the children of government officials, who else would dare do this kind of thing…?

網易跟帖总局局长 [德国球迷]:

Clearly it is this girl who raped the four guys, am I right?

Multiple Shandong Girls Claim to Have Been Sexually Assaulted, Police: The Girls Actively Participated and Did Not Resist

Shandong police recently published their investigation report concerning the “girls suffer Sexual assaulted by local ruffians” controversy, stating that they could not determine that the actions of three involved constituted rape. The police claim that the girl did not resist during the sexual relations and instead actively participated. In response, the victim Jiao X firmly denied this, saying she wanted to flee at the time and had scratched the arm of the other party with all her strength. A family member of Jiao X also accused the police of altering testimony, that the “ripped off my clothes” said by the child had been changed to “the child took off her clothes, and helped Huang X take off his clothes”.

Justice may be late, but it will never be absent [fail to come].


Four adult males who do drugs against a 14-year-old girl is in fact a kind of coercion itself, where she wouldn’t dare resist [fight back], and couldn’t resist [fight back].

网易山东省潍坊市高密市手机网友 ip:123.133.*.* (responding to above)

This is true.

网易河北省石家庄市手机网友 ip:221.194.*.*

Ah, the news, when there are relations with someone under 18 years old, even in the free United States it is severely punished, but in our country it isn’t considered rape?

e2317b809e017c264dae8c61 [网易美国手机网友]: (responding to above)

Yeah, human flesh search those fabricating in this case, to all be severely punished, to satisfy the people’s [public’s] anger.

fjc1957 [网易山东省青岛市网友]:

Should be thoroughly investigated, the truth restored, and circulated throughout all of society.

网易广西贵港市手机网友 ip:121.31.*.*

A disgrace! Should be investigated strictly!

网易河北省石家庄市手机网友 ip:218.11.*.*

This is just like rape not being considered rape because a condom was worn [refers to an infamous case involving this exact reasoning]. These beasts not only raped a young girl, they are also raping society.

把权力关进了笼子 [阿根廷球迷]:

Strongly demand that this case be investigated by the province [provincial level authorities, instead of locals]. The shamelessness is already to an infuriating degree!

懵懂cool [网易山东省淄博市网友]:

These thugs should be severely punished in accordance with the law. At the same time, school safety management should be strengthened, to protect minors, and strengthen students’ safety awareness.

Speechless. I recommend that the Disciplinary Committee [of the Chinese Communist Party, of the central government] get involved, as houseflies should also be killed!
