Picture of the day: Sexual assault on Chinese street; passers-by turn a blind eye
On Tianlin Road in Xuhui District, Shanghai, a man in black suit sexually molested a woman right in the full public glare. He not only kissed her forcibly, but lifted her top and sucked her bosoms. The shocking scene drew attention from passers-by. However, they simply watched with arms crossed or videotaped the scene with their cellphones. None of them stepped out to stop the horrible act.
In the video uploaded to the web, the man in suit totally ignored people on the street and sexually abused the woman in front of a store. Even though the woman was conscious and attempted to resist when kissed forcibly, she seemed to have been drunk or drugged and fell to the ground. Not until someone in the crowd shouted ”The police is coming” did the video end.
Most netizens were dumbfounded by the video clip and incredulous. Some one also denounced passers-by for being nonchalant. One net user from Shanghai said, “I thought it was an adult video scene. I never expected such an assault on women would take place in Shanghai. So disgraceful!” (Picked from Wenxuecity)
