It's Not Right, But It's AWESOME

Reuters: Man stripped, shaved for posting ads

BEIJING (Reuters) - Security guards in a southern Chinese city stripped and shaved the head of a man they found illegally posting advertisements on walls to earn a bit of money, a domestic newspaper reported Tuesday.

The victim, Xiao Liu, a 17-year-old migrant worker from the impoverished central province of Henan, was stripped to his underwear by about 10 men in Dongguan in the southern province of Guangdong, the Beijing News said.

Obviously, I do not want to be beaten and have my head shaved, but I can't tell you the number of times I've wanted to police to come tear my clothes off. I mean, in my mind it's usually just one or two. I don't have the imagination to project ten policemen doing that, I guess.

Who says China is a draconian backwater nation that perverts justice?

I don't know either, but I will keep an eye out for the video.
