Our country’s consulate in Canada confirms a study abroad student was murdered and then dismembered, 120602 Guangdong Morning News

Comments on Youku:


Hahaha, now I know why there are so many people who want to get an American green card!


I wonder which rich family or official’s family this unlucky child belongs to.


The risks of being gay abroad is so high… looks like China is still better.


33 and still in school?


Consider for a moment, if this were a Canadian who was dismembered in China, what would the consequences be?!!


The Chinese victim, what’s his background in China? Anyone know?


The more gay people there are, the more opportunity I have for finding a a partner.

etulving: (responding to above)

There are quite a lot of female homosexuals in China too, so it’s still hopeless.


His parents suffered two blows! First is their own son being a homosexual, the second is him being dismembered!


Isn’t Canada and the United States supposed to be heaven on Earth?


Some people’s reactions are too inhuman. A compatriot is murdered and you guys actually happily applaud? You guys think just because he’s a homosexual he deserves to die? How is this different from when the Nazi’s felt all Jews should die? People should watch what they say. Just because you don’t know any homosexuals doesn’t mean you can guarantee that your children or grandchildren won’t be homosexuals.


Canada, isn’t that where everyone wants to emigrate to!!!


Deserved it, if you weren’t gay, if you didn’t go find that person, regardless of what the reason is, if you were a normal person, this wouldn’t have happened!


If this had happened to an American, just think what the United States would do.


Dismembering then necrophilia, such fucking “strong taste” [a taste for the unusual/abnormal]!!! Talk about being so crazy even a mental asylum wouldn’t dare take you in!


Yep yep, either way, just be careful when abroad. Just a few days ago I saw the incident of someone’s [face] being bitten and torn off, and today I see this kind of cannibalism in Canada too, sigh, the world truly isn’t safe.


How does one go abroad and actually run into a porn actor… this too is quite out of the ordinary!


Sure enough, those who commit crimes abroad all have mental problems.

57da: (responding to above)

Then do those who commit crimes domestically all have character problems??


I urge everyone to stop going to Europe and America to study abroad. Not only is the cultural difference big and Chinese people are discriminated against, the main thing is that it isn’t safe. Perverse people.


Yeah, Canada is also becoming unsafe now.


Really, those who want to see the video, you really shouldn’t watch it. In the video, you can’t see what the murderer looks like, you only see the victim’s horrific condition. I was curious, downloaded it, and now I really regret it. It shouldn’t be watched, really, its too upsetting!! How heartbroken his family members must be!! Lin Jun, I hope you rest in peace in heaven!


Scary… looks like China is still better/safer.

suppermammalkill: (responding to above)

Who knows if this kind of thing may happen in China one day, and it may have already happened but we just don’t know about it. After all, aren’t we promoting the aligning of China with international standards? Therefore, wherever there is people, its unsafe. If you want some place that is completely safe, you’re better off emigrating to Mars.


Inconceivable, a study abroad student is murdered and there are this many people rejoicing about it. Being gay is not wrong, going abroad to study is even less wrong, he’s only a victim.

我流: (responding to above)

Being gay is not wrong?! What kind of values is this?! Would a good person have encountered a deviant/sicko like this?

jiating91: (responding to above)

So being gay means you aren’t a good person? What kind of values is that, those of a rural peasant? So what you’re saying is that if you encounter a deviant/pervert like this, you’re not a good person?

marytwo: (responding to above)

Classic person who not only isn’t ashamed but actually takes pride in what he believes. Rather than learning what’s good, he instead insists on learning garbage. Don’t try reasoning with people like this. Either way, they will always believe they are right, just like corrupt officials these days. Would you expect them to reflect upon themselves?


The video is over 10 minutes long, and it isn’t as frightening as you guys make it out to be! It being quite perverse/sick is true though!


The 10 minute video can be found online and downloaded. I only looked at some of the screenshots and was already sick to much stomach. It’s hard to believe there are such perverse/sick people in the world. That poor study abroad student.

@YouTube精选: What the heck is going on recently?! “Naked man eating another person’s face shot dead in America” “Canadian male porn star suspected of dismembering body and necrophilia put on global wanted list” “American university student murders roommate and eats his heart and brain” “American commits seppuku in public, throws own internal organs at police”

String of incidents involving gruesome cannibalism in the United States and Canada.

Comments on Sina Weibo:


I think they’re all zombies…


A Bite of North America…

[Note: This refers to a recently popular CCTV documentary A Bite of China (CNTV/YouTube) about Chinese food and cuisine.]


Probably someone who escaped from Umbrella Corporation


Watched too much Walking Dead!


I’ve always felt that watching the zombie genre was supplementing one’s knowledge for survival~~!!!!


China is comparatively safe~~


Avengers, assemble!


I’ve already planted my sunflowers and peas.


2012 really has arrived.


Could it be that A Bite of China is so popular that the United States always wants to make A Bite of America, to show that their taste is different from China? Such fucking heavy/strong [abnormal, extreme] taste, no wonder the American media can produce films with such heavy/strong taste, it all comes from real life.


China disseminating and making a big deal about the ugly side of America, what kind of mentality is this?

祥瑞狼微博达人: (responding to above)

If you don’t have a hole in your brain, you should know that this microblog is YouTube精选, itself an American propaganda microblog specifically for the people in China who are surrounded by the Great Firewall, are incidents of murder in America not allowed to be disseminated? By your logic, you can bear being a cuckhold as long as it isn’t made public, right? Stupid cunt.

What do you think? Do you think the recent string of news reports about this kind of phenomenon is significant?
