Yikes these internet addiction camps just sound scarier and scarier the more we hear about them. After news of Deng, a 16-year-old who was beaten to death as part of a “personality training program,” got out, Southern Metropolis Daily decided to investigate by going to a related training camp in Guangzhou. According to the translation by Danwei, the training camps were still in operation despite educational authorities’ declarations that they had been halted. Children on the third and fourth floors, when they saw the reporters, began sticking notes into aluminum cans, drink bottles and slippers. They held up bamboo mats with the letters “SOS” written on them and some bore papers and clothes scrawled with the words “beatings” and “help.” They were all stopped by the instructors. We’ve got chills.
