Chinese Man is Interrogated for Talking Trash About Chinese Police on Social Media
Paul Joseph Watson reported on a Chinese man being interrogated for criticizing police on social media.
A video clip showed the man handcuffed to a metal chair while he was being aggressively questioned.
China spies on social media conversations. Then they bring dissidents in for a real-life chat. I’d say we’re AT LEAST five years away from that over here, so no worries. pic.twitter.com/HjXzqsgr8S

The police asked the man, “Why did you complain about police on QQ and WeChat?”
He was then interrogated about his screen name and his group chat activity on the WeChat social media application.
“Why did you talk about the traffic police online…what’s wrong with police confiscating motorcycles?” he was subsequently asked.
The man tried to sound apologetic but the police pressed on by asking him, “Why did you badmouth the police? Do you hate the police?”
The man tried to explain this away by claiming that he was drunk when he made those comments.
He was then asked to apologize to the police for his behavior.
“I’m so sorry, I’m wrong, I know, I know that now, please forgive me, I won’t do it again ever,” the man stated.
Watson notes that the Chinese government punishes people for the following behavior:
– Bad driving.
– Smoking on trains.
– Buying too many video games.
– Buying too much junk food.
– Buying too much alcohol.
– Calling a friend who has a low credit score .
– Having a friend online who has a low credit score.
– Posting “fake news” online.
– Visiting unauthorized websites.
– Walking your dog without a leash.
– Letting your dog bark too much.
In August of this year, the Chinese government boasted about it preventing 2.5 million “discredited entities” from buying plane tickets and 90,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in July.
On top of that, citizens will now be mandated to go through a facial recognition test that reviews their social credit scores before they can go on the Internet.
Xi Jinping’s China appears to be reverting back to its Maoist ways.
Although China has beaten many forms of extreme poverty, the country has not advanced much politically.
Now, it is ushering in a frightening public-private partnership between the state and corporations to promote one of the largest censorship schemes in history.
As China continues to grow, these censorship programs will only expand in size and scope.
