A three-year-old girl in Sichuan was on a walk with her parents when she dropped and broke a cup from a store. When the store requested that her parents pay 25 RMB as compensation, they believed that the store was “forcing them to buy it”. Soon after, the father spanked his daughter, said “I don’t want the cup, I’ll just give you my daughter”, and simply left with his wife. The store called the civil police who got in touch with the parents, but they were unwilling to come and pick up the girl, saying that they’d like to teach her a lesson. Because the girl was already separated from her parents for nine hours, the police were forced to personally bring her home. Netizens cursed the parents in a rage, one said that they are “rich car-driving pretentious bastards” but still can’t pay 25 RMB and hit their child, he then called them “fucking trash”.
