In the aftermath of the footage going viral, the middle school has said that the students have been “criticized” and “educated” for their behavior and have admitted to their mistakes. Meanwhile, their parents were described as feeling “ashamed.”
However, many Weibo users aren’t sure that a bit of criticism and education is enough in this case and have voiced their concerns that without harsher penalties the kids will grow up to become monsters.
Speaking of, earlier this year a man was filmed hanging a dog from a rooftop in Guangzhou. When a neighbor shouted at him to stop, he only looked back and laughed at her. The preceding month, a man was filmed blessing his new Volkswagen SUV with a “blood sacrifice” in which he beat a dog to death before dragging its lifeless body around the car, making sure that some blood was sprinkled on each part.
