Mayor Tells Child Victims of Sexual Assault to Keep Quiet?

Jiang Xianzhi, Jiangxi Province Ruichang City Deputy Mayor, sparked controversy after telling parents of children who were sexually assaulted by their teacher to quietly seek medical care where they are not known and not ask for a cent from the government.

From Sina Weibo:

@袁裕来律师: What a Deputy Mayor. Six elementary school girls were sexually assaulted and infected with sexually transmitted diseases [with symptoms] very likely to reoccur [throughout their lives], and Jiangxi Province Ruichang City Deputy Mayor Jiang Xianzhi who was put in charge of education instead says to the parents [of the victims]: ”If such a thing happened to my child, I’d quietly take her to a place where no one knows her for treatment, and wouldn’t ask the government for a cent.” Deputy Mayor Jiang, you’re now famous!

Comments from Sina Weibo:


Eat shit, Shitty Mayor Jiang. [怒]


Perhaps she used to be a whore. How can a person like this become an official? Better fire her TM ass. In charge of education, this kind of bitch’s remarks are what’s in her heart. Just what level of harmony must the educational atmosphere of that place be.


Good ability, good leader, good policy!


So generous. I hear the netizens’ reactions are very strong and very identical: ”Let her have it!” [群体围观]


Sacrificing her humanity to protect the government’s reputation, such a good cadre of the Party. Getting an excellent review at the end of the year won’t be a problem.


I just want to say [three] words to your daughter: Please contact me!


Deputy Mayor Jiang, the moment you said these words, your child could no longer continue in school, your husband could no longer continue at his place of work, and your parents could no longer continue where they live. It is you people who should quietly go to a place where no one knows you!


That a person who says such outrageous things could become a deputy mayor and be put in charge of education just vividly demonstrates what Yi Zhongtian once said: If you’re not a retard, how can you be a leader?


The Heavenly Kingdom never lacks for scumbags who want to become famous.


This can’t be real, can it?

From NetEase:

Deputy Mayor Responds to “Wouldn’t Ask The Government for Money If My Child Was Sexually Assaulted”

A recently published Xinmin Weekly investigative report regarding 6 little girls suffering sexual assault by a teacher quoted Jiangxi Ruichang City Deputy Mayor Jiang Xianzhi saying to the parents of the victims, “If such a thing happened to my child, I’d quietly take her to a place where no one knows her to be treated, and wouldn’t ask the government for a cent”. This remark incited a huge controversy. Yesterday [August 11], Jiang Xianzhi admitted that she said something similar, but stressed that there was a cause-and-effect and a particular situation [a reason and specific context].

According to Jiang Xianzhi, the reason she said “take her to a place where no one knows her for treatment” is not because she thinks encountering a sexual assault is something embarrassing and not to be mentioned, or that the victim should suffer in silence, but to occupy a mother’s perspective, she feels the child has already suffered physical and psychological trauma. To take them to public places such as city hall, and to have them under the stares of the public, is to hurt them [psychologically/emotionally] a second time.

“I may not have been careful when I spoke, but as a mother, I think the most important thing is to protect the child’s privacy, and heal the wounds on their body and mind”. According to Jiang Xianzhi, as for her saying “if I were the parent of one of the victims, ‘I wouldn’t go before the government to make a fuss, wouldn’t ask the government for a cent’”, is because at the time, she was explaining to the family members [of the victims] that the most important thing to do after this kind of thing is not going to the government demanding compensation but to resolve it in accordance with the law and regulations.

A bandit was crossing the river and accidentally dropped the axe/hatchet he used during robberies into the water. Just as he was in distress, the river god appeared, who took out a hammer and asked: ”Is this yours?” “No.” Then he took out a sickle and asked: ”Is this yours?” “No.” The river god nodded his head with approval: ”You’re quite honest for a brigand, so I’ll give you both of these. Combined, they’re more powerful than an axe.”

Please Pay for Our Indifference: 1935, New York mayor Laguardia was sitting in a court trial: a old woman was fined 10 USD for stealing bread for her grandson. After the trail, the mayor took off his hat and put 10 USD into it, and said: ”Now, everyone please pay a 50 cent fine, to pay for our apathy and indifference, to punish ourselves for living in a city where a grandmother has to steal bread in order to feed her grandson.”
