Weibo users have been spilling much digital ink over these photos of a Sichuan man taking off a young girl’s top and dragging her about in the street. The man is apparently the girl’s father, who lost his patience after she refused to wear her jacket.
The girl refused to wear her jacked “for hours” so—after some delicate decision making, I’m sure—the father took off her clothes and dragged his daughter down the street for nearly 100 meters.
According to the neighbours, the father in question has a tendency to spoil his daughter, buys her everything she wants, and never laid a hand on her. He may have bought the jacket, but at least two of these claims are shaky, to say the last.
Police briefly got involved in the case, but decided that the incident isn’t severe enough for child abuse charges as there, apparently, wasn’t any “obvious beating or abuse.”
