The chengguan are at it again. Not content with beating and throwing a blind man into a river, and presumably bored of chasing around H7N9 chickens, these glorified thugs with security badges decided to pick on a different underprivileged demographic: the elderly. This time, their target was a defenceless old street vendor lady.
According to accounts on Weibo, several young men came out of their ‘law enforcement’ vehicle and started walking up the pedestrian overpass towards the lady, who is believed to be in her seventies, and forcefully slapped her to the ground. They continued beating her over and over again until she was bleeding profusely. Her crime? Selling protective talismans to make a living.
One witness was utterly appalled by the fact the chengguan decided to specifically target the old lady, completely ignoring the dozens of other street vendors all around. The entire internet is seething, and justifiably so:
@燃烧的火焰166: Not the Chengguan again??? I’m not reading this, seriously. Chengguan = assholes.
