Guizhou Middle/High School Student Abusing Mentally-Handicapped Elderly Person Exposed Online, Elderly Person on His Knees Afraid to Get up

Recently a netizen exposed an incident on Weibo where a middle/high school student in Zunyi city Syuiyang county Kuankuo town beat and intimidated a mentally-handicapped person into kneeling on the ground afraid to get up. Once the information went public on discussion forums and microblogs, it attracted condemnation from thousands of netizens, one after another demanding that the middle/high school student be human flesh searched.




Netizen @曾慧er said: Just looking at this is upsetting, I want to cry. My own uncle is also is also mentally-disabled because of polio, and I hated seeing others bully him when I was small.

Netizen @青菜与白菜不得不说的秘 sighed: “Man at birth is by nature good. Not having [good] upbringing is indeed a very lamentable thing.”

Of course, there were also netizens who defended the high/middle school student. Netizen “野度孤舟”: “The child doesn’t know better, and looking at the photos, he was just posing, and didn’t really hit him.”

According to previous media reports, one perspective is that the mentally-handicapped and mentally-ill, deaf and mute or blind people are all considered disadvantaged social groups in society, all protected under the “Protection of the Disabled Law”, so punishment of crimes should be different from ordinary people.

Another perspective believes strict adherence to the law is the basic requirement of law enforcement, and those handling the case cannot exceed the regulations of the law and enforce the law arbitrarily. Our country’s criminal laws and judicial interpretations do not have any regulations specific to the “mentally handicapped”. Moreover, there are four levels of of “mentally handicapped” that cannot be compared to the mentally-ill, deaf and mute, or blind.

This kind of person should be buried alive. To bury someone alive, you need an excavator. Okay then, here’s the question, which company’s excavator is the best?

6 Second-Year High School Girls in Yan’an With Knives Forced 5 Younger Schoolmates to Take Off Clothes Before Sexually Assaulting Them

Recently, a collective sexual assault case occurred at Yan’an city Wuqi county High School, where six second-year schoolgirls with knives forced five younger schoolmates to take off their clothes and then sexually assault them. On September 26th, the six girls involved were arrested by local police.

At 5pm on September 26, a doctor at the Wuqi county People’s Hospital reported that five girls from the county’s high school were brought in by ambulance for medical examination and treatment. The girls had different levels of injuries to their breasts and lower body parts. “The girls covered their faces and cried, but in the face of police questioning, gradually explained how they had been hurt,” said this doctor.

As it is understood, this case of campus sexual assault occurred on the evening of September 23rd. That night, the five victims were preparing to go to sleep in their dorm when the six perpetrators barged in and used fruit knives to threaten the five girls into taking off their clothes. The five girls resisted but were beaten. After being forced to take off their clothes, they were subjected to the six girls’ insults and attacks. “Unbelievable, they used fruit knives to cut the five girls’ breasts, found a beer bottle to sexually assault the five girls, and threatened the victims to not tell teachers or parents,” said one of the victim’s parents.

Afterwards, the five victims, afraid of reprisals, kept silent their humiliation, but because the injuries two among them suffered were more serious, individual teachers and parents noticed. “My girl was walking differently from normal, as if in a lot of pain, so when I kept pressing her for what happened, she finally told the truth. My child’s lower body was all swollen/bruised. She had thrown away her underwear into the sewer,” one of the victim’s parents angrily said, “that such a vile thing happened in the dorms, the school’s management should be held responsible.”

Last night around 7pm, this reporter confirmed this matter with Wuqi police. “At present, the six girls involved have been criminally detained. The Wuqi County Party Committee and County government leaders are taking this very seriously and have already tasked the Public Security Bureau and Education Bureau to thoroughly investigate and report the results,” said a Wuqi county Public Security Bureau police officer involved in the case.

Female hooligans/thugs! If you want to sexually assault anyone, come at me!

Used a beer bottle?
When providing evidence, have those six girls demonstrate.

Public morality decreases by the day as evildoers rapidly multiply.

If you have the guts, leave those five younger schoolgirls alone and come at me instead. I have no trouble going six against one.

Just dump those six beasts in Africa, and fuck them to death.

Yan’an is a good place.

空樽对月 [网易广东省珠海市网友]:

What’s wrong with this world? The parents of these knife-wielding girls should self-reflect. Bringing up this kind of daughter with this kind of behavior is definitely connected to their family upbringing!!!

Have they gone crazy? Instead of being good students, these young girls are instead so cruel, shameless, and vulgar/obscene/perverse!
