After being scapegoated by the CCP regime, which attempted to ease the public hostility after five homeless children were found dead in a rubbish bin in the town of Bijie, the local officials now put up warnings on all roadside dumpsters: “No entry for humans and animals, enter at your own risk! (严禁人畜入内, 违者责任自负!)”
The dead bodies of five children, reportedly aged between 9 and 13, were found by an elderly rag picker in Bijie, in the mountainous and impoverished province of Guizhou, on the morning of November 16, 2012.
The initial investigation suggested the children died of carbon monoxide poisoning. It’s thought they tried to warm themselves by burning charcoal inside the bin and closed the lid, when temperatures dropped to 6 degrees Celsius.
The tragedy has quickly triggered public outcries over the social inequality and plight of our children left behind by parents who have migrated to coastal cities to earn a living.
In response to the unrest, the Party had sacked several officials of the local government, including the two deputy heads of Qixingguan district responsible for civil affairs and education, and two school principals.
Surprisingly, on December 19, the trash bins on the streets of the town then were spotted by some web users painted with new words that read “No entry for humans and animals, entry at your own risk!”
It sparked off a new wave of condemnation from the masses!
“Kids don’t read well; animals are illiterate – only our government can read the slogan. They should be the ones entering the trash bins!” said one Weibo user named @胶东县令.
“They are purely scums. They attempt to shirk their responsibilities in this way if the similar tragedy happens again in the town,” criticized another one.
“The officials never thought to provide more shelters and food to homeless children, or develop a child welfare system, or improve the living conditions of impoverished areas, but just abusing their power to obtain as more money as possible in their own pockets.”
Facing the pressure, the mayor of the local government later made an open apology, saying, “I sincerely apologize for the improper words on our town’s trash bins that hurt everyone’s feelings. We will mend our fault immediately.” Duh!

A photo showing a pupil’s swollen and bruised face has aroused public anger again online.
This is another case of child abuse that occurred recently in Ankang city, Shaanxi province.
Because the child failed to complete his homework in time, his angry teacher, surnamed Luo, beat him. And later, the teacher again ordered a class of 50 other students to slap in his face in turn.
The poor pupil, 12 years old, told the reporters that he was laughed by classmates when his face turned red and swollen after the beat. And he did not realize that before seeing himself in the mirror.
The 22-year-old teacher, who had worked in this primary school for two years, has confessed his wrongdoing, and now been suspended from his job.
The child abuse is not rare in schools in China.
Several days ago, a middle school in Zhejiang province saw a teacher dumping a garage can over a student’s head too because the teacher believed the student was eating snack in his class.
