A fight between local officers and a street vendor in Guiyang (Guizhou) was caught on video and shared on Sina Weibo on March 24. Bystanders don’t intervene in the situation, but instead cheer on the street vendor by yelling “hit them!”

A video of a fight between four local officers (‘city management’ 城管) and a street vendor, selling food on the street in the capital of China’s province of Guizhou, has gone viral on Chinese social media. The street vendor can be seen picking up a steel pipe and chasing after the officers.

The many bystanders can be heard screaming: “Hit them, hit them!”

According to The Paper, Guiyang authorities confirmed on March 24 that this confrontation occurred in the city on March 23. The city had announced stricter regulations for street vendors earlier in the month. Other cities, such as Beijing, have also cracked down on street vendors.

The video shows how the officers finally take over the steel pipe from the street vendor, who then flees. According to Netease News, the case is currently still under investigation.

“‘The officers are coming’ is like ‘the devils are coming’,” one Weibo user comments: “We can blame history for that.”

“I really feel sorry for these local officers that all the people are yelling “hit them”. They are helping the people by enforcing the law,” one netizen says.

    Lu Xun described in his novel Medicine (Yao) a scene where Shuan senior went to a early morning decapitation to get a blood bun to cure his son: he saw only many backs;all necks, like those of ducks seized by invisible hands, stretched upward.
    Even if it is not a case of Chenguan, without their negative connotations in society, standbys are never rare when it comes to street conflict…sadly

Woman Kicked Out on Highway Off-ramp by Boyfriend over Spring Festival Argument

He put her out of the car, but their relationship is still on.

News of a Chinese woman being kicked out of the car beside a high-speed road by her boyfriend is making its rounds on Weibo today. What many netizens are especially astonished about, is that the couple is still together.

On February 20, Chinese newspaper People’s Daily reported on Weibo that a woman was kicked out of the car by her boyfriend on Sunday while driving home to celebrate Chinese New Year.

The incident occurred at the Zhejiang Hangzhou highway. Local traffic police spotted the woman walking by herself on the off-ramp, carrying a suitcase.

The woman reportedly was visibly upset and told the police that she was on her way to her Anhui hometown with her boyfriend when they got into an argument and he kicked her out of the car.

Footage of the woman wandering about the side of the highway was published on Weibo by online media outlet Pear Video, and was shared hundreds of times on Chinese social media on Tuesday.

As reported by various Chinese news outlets, the woman’s boyfriend was later tracked down by police and apologized for leaving his girlfriend beside the highway. After a police mediation, the couple still continued their way to the New Year’s festivities together.

“Why didn’t she break up with him?!” many commenters on the news wonder.

“If you’re looking for a marriage partner, don’t pick him from a garbage dump,” some wrote.

Others warn the woman that her boyfriend’s current actions are a bad omen for the future: “Now he’ll throw you out of the car together with your suitcase, later he’ll throw you out of the car together with your child.”

“If there’s a first time, there’ll always be second time,” many netizens also said.

In 2016, a fighting couple also shocked the online community when footage of a man putting his wife in the back of his car trunk at a Hebei gas station went viral on Weibo.

A day after the incident, the woman said she would not press charges against her own husband, igniting discussions over whether or not the man should be punished anyway for the abuse – regardless of whether or not she would press charges.

As for the couple in today’s new feature, most netizens just hope for one thing: “Whatever you do, do not marry him!”
