Father forces 10-year-old daughter to eat feces from public toilet

The above news clip reports that the father uses this method as punishment when his daughter misbehaves. The incident occurred at 3:40pm February 3rd at a shopping center in Hangzhou. The father had purchased some newspapers on their way home, which his daughter apparently threw on the ground. Angry, and with his daughter crying loudly, he dragged her to the men’s restrooms.

Several witnesses are interviewed. The woman in the red jacket says the father used a folded advertisement leaflet to pick up the excrement and that the father looked sophisticated and around 30 years old. The next woman wearing purple says the father first smeared the excrement on the daughter’s face and mouth. She walked over and tried to stop him but he wouldn’t listen. She saw the father try to stuff the feces into her firmly shut mouth. Another woman wearing dark gray says she asked him why he doesn’t eat the feces himself first. A young woman wearing black says the father repeatedly fished out excrement and tried to stuff them into the little girl’s mouth.

Bystanders immediately tried to stop him and called the police. The police officer interviewed says many physically intervened, some trying to block the father, pushing him away, others pulling the child away. “Such a disgusting thing, he had to be stopped.”

When police investigated, they learned that the man is a university graduate, from another province, and divorced. After evaluations, he was determined to not suffer from any mental illness. Because the daughter is not yet 10 years old and her father has full custody, the police let him go home after giving him a lecture.

Several experts are interviewed suggesting such things as the father possibly releasing his anger at his wife upon his daughter. A lawyer says the mother, close relatives, or close friends can appeal to the courts to change custody. The news anchor at the end explains what could happen in America, and that action should be taken to prevent this from happening again rather than waiting for it to happen again before doing something.

Vile father forces daughter to eat excrement

The above short television clip reports that this happened because the daughter did not tidy up the newspapers. The host says what is most shocking is that the father is educated, having even graduated from university, and that this isn’t the first time he has used such a despicable method with his daughter.

Note: The image of a little girl in pink used in the above news report is actually not of the daughter involved in this incident. It is an image from a 2009 incident where a 6-year-old girl was discovered covered with wounds and scars from abuse by her father. What appears to be excrement on her face are actually scabs from cuts and burns on her face. Certain online reports of this incident reused the old image, which has then misled others such as netizens on popular Chinese microblogging service Sina Weibo (example) where the many of the posts about this incident have the same image attached.

What a sick father! Poor child!


Fuck, this kind of thing and they give him a chance, its simply using his daughter as an experiment, what a tragedy, this kind of person dying wouldn’t be worth any pity.

pnxzx [网易广西贵港市网友]:

Truly fucking sick! Have him chopped up and fed to the dogs! Abroad, he would’ve been stripped of his custody rights long ago, and sent to jail, but “here where we are” [in China]….

This sick father should be punished by the law.

我要去爱琴海 [网易广东省惠州市网友]:

This kind of father should be taken out and shot. If he likes this shit, he should slowly taste it himself, the disgusting bastard.

rebeccasyh [网易广东省广州市网友]:

Scum, China’s children are so miserable, all treated as the property of adults. Little children have their own minds too, and they have their own dignity!

至尊黑杰克 [网易云南省昆明市网友]:

I registered just to condemn that man, fuck, he must’ve grown up eating shit!

zhanghuxk [网易陕西省榆林市网友]:

If this were America!! This father not only would no longer be able to see his daughter but would also be in prison.

Human flesh search him out, and beat him to death.
