Girl Stripped and Burned in Park Torture Outrage


A 16-year-old girl was accosted in a park by a gang of young men and women, who proceeded to tear her clothes from her, beat her, and then sadistically torture her, burning her with a lighter; naturally they filmed the entire scene, and then uploaded the video to the Internet.

Throughout, her cries for help went ignored, and the ordeal seem only to have ended with appearance of the authorities, at which point the group flees and the recording ends; it soon found its way online, however. This hot on the heels of the previous infamous torture video incident.

All this occurred in May, and Chinese police since formed a special investigatory team, acting on reports of the video, and arrested five male torturers.

Their ages ranged from 15 to 17, and on questioning they gave some interesting justifications for their crimes: “We didn’t really think we were committing a crime. We just spend all day and every day lazing around, and doing this sort of thing” we hear from one dissolute youth. We do not hear of any other arrests.

Whilst they may have had some success apprehending those responsible, they were powerless to stop the spread of the video online.

The girl apparently is undergoing counselling, and has withdrawn from school, instead receiving tutelage at home.

At least in this instance the unfortunate young lady escaped outright outrage, if only barely. Scant consolation, given what she did endure, perhaps.

The Chinese report, via Heaven.

You will not be alone in noticing a disturbing parallel between this story, and the earlier sordid tale of torturous abuse and humiliation, which also resulted in an uploaded video.

They are chronologically separate, so there is no question of connection, and it might perhaps be unfair to leap to castigate China as being a barbarous place, given that we should logically expect a fifth of the world’s depravity from a nation with a fifth of the world’s population. Even so, plainly some aspects of China are less than savoury…

    The problem is how the Chinese government are not dealing with domestic issues and instead focusing more energy on waste-of-time diplomacy and foreign ties. Plus, being such a big country, there is bound to be corruption at certain lower levels and hard to enforce law and order in less developed areas. Though since this most likely went in a developed area, I have to question exactly how the system works in China now, especially with its Communist system. A result of globalization, perhaps?

    I'll defend China from a lot of the unwarranted criticisms going around, but it is definitely huge and has everything in it, from the best to the worst. A fifth of the world's depravity, at least. Social order is still precarious, after over a century of war, disaster, shifting political control, and now unwonted freedom.

    I find your comment a bit crude in saying that because China has a fifth of the worlds population, it logically has a fifth of the worlds scum living there. Human nature defies any logic thrown at it.

    So you're saying China has more than a fifth of the world's scum in it?

    Such actions by the perpetrators is well within the range of possible human behavior, so nobody should be alarmed or shocked...but they can be surprised.

    While I am Chinese and would certainly like for Chinese people, in fact, all people, to act and interact in society with utmost propriety, the truth is that it is impossible. Every country has such problems- hooligans, social scums, dregs of society, neer-do-wells, as well as numerous social ills. Even the United States, which is currently the richest country, has homeless people. Nothing can be done. All societies will stratify, and there will always be those who are at the bottom.

    Disclosure: I am a pessimist and a cynic.

    United State isn't the richest country, it's the most powerful, but if you talk about richness, GDP per capita is a better way to do. There are a lot of people in USA, so it's the most powerful country.

    Best GDPs per capita is often noticeable in Scandinavian countries, well not Iceland anymore (since 2007 if i'm not wrong), but for example the gdp per capita in Norway is unbelievable. Besides, scandinavian countries are socially fairer, with more sharing. Anyway, usa is a rich country, but if you talk about homeless people it's not an example far from it, there are especially a lot of them in this country.

    Isn't it better to say some people deserve to die and thus the iron hammer of the social enforcers shall force its hand and smite the evil right out of our trousers
