German Police Tried For Violence, What About Chinese Police Brutality?
Four years ago, demonstrators were injured when
a Stuttgart, Germany protest was dispersed by police.
Later, the protesters sued police.
The court case against the responsible officers
recently went to trial.
Two officers were accused of negligence.
Analysts say that China’s law, under the Chinese Communist
Party’s (CCP) rule, is useless compared with Germany’s.
The Public Security, the Procuratorate and the Court shield
each other, and violent police are rarely brought to justice.
On Sept. 30, 2010, German retiree Dietrich Wagner was
protesting a controversial train station reconstruction plan.
Police used a water cannon to strike him in the face,
nearly blinding the 69-year-old.
Wagner’s lawyer Frank Ulrich Mann
was interviewed by Deutsche Welle.
He said that his client witnessed pepper spray
being used on children.
Police also targeted the heads of protesters
with water cannons.
Mann says that his client sought justice.
So far, an order of summary punishment has been filed
against four police officers.
On June 24, two officers responsible for the use of water
cannons were tried and accused of negligence.
Wang Beiji, current affairs commentator: “Police in
democratic countries have their limitations
in handling protests.
The police cannot use excessive violence.
In China, for many years, police frequently use violence
to handle protesters, or torture protesters after detainin"
Sources say that on May 10 villagers in Hangzhou, Zhejiang
protested against a planned waste incinerator.
Nearly 30,0000 villagers protested on a motorway.
Police dispatched to the site violently suppressed protesters.
Two villagers and one child were killed.
Dozens injured were rushed to hospital.
On May 11, the local police, the court and the Procuratorate
jointly issued a notice demanding alleged criminals
to voluntarily surrender, otherwise, severe punishment
Meanwhile, photos of 15 “suspects" were published.
China-based lawyer Tang Jitian: “In a democratic country,
there are strict and detailed police procedures.
In China, supervision institutions don’t play their role.
Police have expansive power and often casually abuse
their rights, damaging society – this is a frequent occurrence.
Although some regulations are in place to deal with them,
some actions were ordered by their superiors,
so the majority haven’t been punished.
Many people believe that as long as their superiors
shield them, there is no need to worry."
On March 30, citizens of Maoming, Guangdong protested
against plans for a chemical plant (PX).
Police were dispatched en masse to the site
where they violently suppressed demonstrators.
15 protesters were killed and hundreds were injured.
On April 23, Maoming police claimed that 24 people
were detained and five were placed under arrest.
Of 36 people given fines, two were sent
to drug addiction treatment centers.
Chen Junyu, former deputy director of Baiyun District,
Guangzhou City: “Police are above the law.
The Public Security, the Court and
the Procuratorate cover each other.
The Judiciary and media are not independent,
thus police exploit loopholes.
Nobody punishes them, so they don’t care."
Ma Xiaoming, former Shaanxi TV editor, reveals that he
was illegally arrested and beaten by police on March 8, 2013.
The police read Mao Zedong quotes to him.
Ma believes the cause of the police brutality
is due to Mao’s tyrannical system being kept.
Ma Xiaoming: “Mao died over 30 years ago, but the police
quote his words as reasoning to illegally arrest and try us.
This indicates that after the Cultural Revolution,
although Mao was re-assessed, his huge sins
and the historical damage he caused have never been judged.
Mao’s remaining tyrannical system
is the leading cause of police violence."
Wang Beiji says the CCP relied on violence to seize power.
It has never abandoned violence as a means
to resolve problems.
Now in Mainland China, many citizens have no other choice
but to use violence to resist the CCP’s rule.
