Police in Qionglai in Sichuan Province got jiggy with it recently to record a rap video entitled “Rise up, Qionglai Police!” (邛崃警察雄起), to showcase and express their love of the job and bad-guy-catching skills. The video footage (with crazy camera zooms!) features a variety of policemen, including S.W.A.T teams in training, civilian police visiting from house to house and helping old ladies, as well as firemen leaving their stations to put out
some pesky burning Tibetans local fires.
The lyrics of the song are predictably propagandistic and hackneyed, with a chorus proclaiming, “Loyalty, loyalty, our strong faith makes us unafraid to sacrifice our lives. Responsibility, responsibility, we will work to live up to this all our lives. For justice and people’s livelihood, we will work all our lives to construct ‘the soul of police’.”
Though the video has gone somewhat viral, we think the Qionglai police could definitely get the internet buzzing if they feature some
sexy hoochie mamas lovely Chengdu lady cops doing their public security thing with big-ass guns. Holla!
