@浣铁军: Demolishing and relocation – The blood curdling shrieks of a living person set on fire! Ripping apart the hearts of every Chinese person: The wretched sight of a living person being set of fire pierces the clear eyes of every Chinese person! Yet another elderly person burned like charcoal and close to death lies in the hospital! On October 14th, in the Yunfeng neighborhood of Xiangtang City, Hunan Province, and as a result of demolition and relocation talks that have been continuously failed, those responsible for the demolition recruited members of the criminal underworld to inhumanly beat up and then set on fire a nearly 60-year-old elderly man. The blood curdling shrieks of a living person set on fire! Ripping apart the hearts of every Chinese person!

Reposting/forwarding in anger! Many people say: You cannot change anything, life is what it is. But, if you want this world to become better, you only need to be a good person yourself. You can totally make this world a little bit better, even if it is just that little bit. Repost/forward, it truly is a kind of strength/power.

Dre_袁尒欣:

When these things become habitual, what meaning is there for the continued existence of this country?

香草山-朱师傅:

I rarely repost/forward [“retweet”] this kind [of news], because there is too much. But this is truly unbearable, although whether this s true or bogus is still waiting to be determined.

娘了个白大腿:

In this barbaric land, it is inevitable that there will be barbaric people.

炖-dun:

Are these people still people?

方舟溯大江:

Political environment is the air, and those people who don’t care about politics are shameful! The actions of Xiangtan’s [of Hunan province] local governments infuriates both the people and god!

沈斐的花园:

Come on, this is way too savage [going too far]! In the past, there was at least a loincloth, but now it’s just completely naked insanity [there used to at least be some restraint and shame, but now it is shameless and open violence].

巴陵惑:

This kind of country does not deserve love [patriotism].

小茉儿:

This country, for money and houses, is no longer human.
