China Publicly Shames COVID Violators in Armed Parade

Riot police in China publicly shamed four alleged suspects in a newly revived practice to enforce COVID lockdowns


On Tuesday, a troop of armed riot police paraded four alleged violators of COVID rules through the streets of south China, a practice banned in 2010. 

The event has resulted in criticism of the Chinese government’s heavy-handed approach. 

The four alleged violators were masked and dawning hazmat suits as they were paraded Tuesday in front of crowded streets in Guangxi region’s Jingxi city. As they walked the route, the four suspects were carrying large placards with their faces and names. 

Photos and video surfaced of the event showing each of the suspects being held by two officers and surrounded by a circle of police in riot gear. Many of the officers were also armed.

In August, the local government announced the newly revived disciplinary measures to penalize anyone who violates the COVID health regulations. 

In 2010 China outlawed public shaming of criminal suspects due to campaigning by human rights activists. However, the practice has recently resurfaced as local governments struggle to enforce China’s zero-COVID policy

Tuesday’s event comes amid concerns by residents who fear they may starve in the heavily locked-down region. Residents have been banned from leaving their homes — even to buy food. 

Just a few dozen cases sparked the heavy COVID measures in the region.

On Monday, officials in the city of Xi’an notified the 13 million residents they could only leave their homes when invited to take part in a new round of mass testing.

The four alleged violators in the parade Tuesday have also been accused of transporting illegal migrants. The Jingxi region sits near the Chinese border with Vietnam. Illegal immigration has been a great concern to China, as their borders remain mostly closed as a preventative measure against the virus.

Tuesday’s event led to heavy criticism from leaders and social media users.

While Jingxi is under pressure from the CCP to prevent imported coronavirus cases, “the measure seriously violates the spirit of the rule of law and cannot be allowed to happen again,” Chinese Communist Party-affiliated Beijing News said Wednesday.

    If we’re seeing this from the CCP, it’s probably on purpose. So given that they’re probably doing this to be seen by the world, what is it we aren’t looking at?

    Hong Kong?
    Taiwan?
    India?
    South China Sea?
    Meng Wenzhou?
    Something else in Canada?
    The Belt and Rob countries?
    TikTok destroying children’s brains?
    Something something Alex Jones?

    I want to say I am shocked, but its impossible to be if you are paying attention at all. If this is what leaked out of China what else do you think is happening there?

    If the current selected commie occupation regime here thought they could get away with acting like these CCP clown asses they’d do it in a heartbeat, and asscheek hams like the NYPD jack boots that were out picking on kids yesterday would crack skulls and enforce this shit with a smile

    @PandaUSA, you couldn’t me more correct. Some may call this a conspiracy theory but knowing the nearly two year track record for the “covid conspiracy theorists,” I will give it 3 months until this is tried in euorpe or australia and then another 3 months before leftwing cities like portland, san fran or nyc try it.

    Kicking a 5yo out of an applebees for not having his papers isnt going to be enough. They will then parade that kid around and label him a menace to society. Watch the stoning commence and the useful idiots be the first to throw the rocks.
