The Tangshan barbecue restaurant beating case that caused a sensation across the world ushered in the verdict today.
The first offender, Chen Jizhi, was sentenced to 24 years in prison and a fine of 320,000 yuan.
The remaining 27 defendants were sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment ranging from 6 months to 11 years.
In a viral video uploaded on Weibo, a man was seen trying to take advantage of a woman who was dining.
After the man was rejected he resorted to an act of violence to “cover” his rejected pride.
He started attacking the woman and the woman’s friend came in to help only to get hit by the rest of the men as well.
It was not just punches and kicks, the men used chairs and beer bottles to hit the helpless group of women.
The woman was eventually dragged outside of the shop as the group of men took turns hitting the woman at the entrance.
The man pulled the woman by her hair and kicked her head saying “cry, cry some more”.
A woman who is working at the store was seen stepping out of the store and was warned by one of the men to walk away.
One of the men was so dumb that he hit his own girlfriend in the confusion only to hug his girlfriend saying sorry. ( 2min 16 seconds).

The post went viral and many people commented that it is best to ignore them when you encounter this kind of person.
“After reading the news, my mother said, don’t resist, let alone insult them, when you encounter such people, run away when you get the chance, don’t expect others or the police to save you, sisters, don’t be deceived by the ostensible stability in the current society. Even if something happens, the bad guy won’t get the punishment he deserves. It’s not that I’m pessimistic, it’s just that what happened repeatedly taught me how to survive in this society.”
” I have been reminding myself not to go out at night, encountering wicked people is more scary than ghosts, these wicked people have no law at all”
“Men in black clothes and green clothes must be sentenced to death. I’m mad when I watch the video, but if a man goes up and stops it, it will not cause such serious injuries!”
China’s social problems
It is common that no one will help or come in to stop them if such a situation happens as most people do not want to be part of the problem or solution.
Most people in China’s society will ignore, watch or walk away.
