A Guangxi man has been arrested after he stormed the Dongxing City Family Planning Office and began a slashing spree that left two officials dead and three injured. Local police eventually took the man into custody, as seen in the video above, and he has already become something of a cause célèbre for one-child activists.
The man (as yet unidentified in the press) reportedly has three daughters and one son, and had refused to pay fines on his additional children. South China Morning Post reports:
Some users of the Chinese version of Twitter, Sina Weibo, expressed sympathy for Tuesday’s attacker.
“As long as family planning serves as a means to persecute the people, the people must resist,” wrote one. “How many more people will turn to crime because of this terrible law?”
