A leaked video reveals Chinese firefighter pledges getting hazed by senior officers of a paramilitary organization. The fifteen minute video depicts a line up full of slaps, kicks, knees, and belts. It’s also a prime example of HOUSE BUSINESS THAT SHOULD NEVER, EVER, BE FILMED.
The video is horrendously too long and boring for most attention spans, but if you arbitrarily click forward in the time line you might catch a lucky flying front kick to the chest.
Even though the peasant-nerds of the censored internet are in an uproar about the video, it’s safe to assume that no one of any real importance gives a shit. After all, it’s China we’re talking about here. There is zero tolerance for hippie bullshit. China strangles activism to death with the same belt it auto-erotically asphyxiates itself with.
Firefighters in China are a detachment of the People’s Armed Police, which locks down the borders and handles matters of internal security. Therefore, the senior members of the Chinese internal security forces are the ones who haze firefighter pledges.
The People’s Armed Police is a paramilitary organization within one of the shadiest modern civilizations on the planet. Do you really think those guys give a fuck? Hazing is no big deal to them. It’s not like there’s a Chinese IFC that’s checking into hazing allegations. The only oversight comes from the Ministry of Public Security and the Central Military Commission, neither of which gives two cats in a wok about hazing.
The only thing they care about is tracking down the guy who posted that video to the Internet and skull fucking his brains out through his nose. I can only assume he’s dead and/or missing his testicles by now. In all fairness, the police are pretty amateur for filming something like this. If anyone understands how condemning video evidence is, you’d think it’d be the cops.
