A video uploaded to and going viral on Chinese social media has put police in the spotlight for abuse of power,more specifically threatening young women with prison rape for the supposed purpose of teaching them “respect for the law.”
The video was taken by one of two young women arrested by a police officer in Shenzhen, southern China, on May 21, for not having their identification with them. The women had been shopping when the officer stopped them and forced them into his patrol car with help from another officer.
On the way to the police station, the officer shouted at the women continuously, making threats laced with profanity and lewd remarks, which were captured in the video.
When the women fearfully doubted his identity and asked him to show proof of his profession, he flew into a fit and responded: “I think you might be a man, why the [expletive] did you just enter a women’s bathroom? Take off your clothes and show me the proof.”
He further intimidated the women, saying “Yes, I see you’re quite pretty,” and “since you don’t understand the law, let me teach you so you can improve your knowledge. I’ll lock you with those HIV-positives, thieves, and robbers, I’ll let you enjoy it slowly.” [FULL STORY]
