or the second time this month in China, someone was put in the hospital after attempting to dissuade a kid from using the world as his toilet.
In surveillance footage from outside a supermarket in Guangxi’s Pingnan county on Thursday, a boy is seen taking a piss on a tree on a sidewalk in broad daylight. His bathroom break is interrupted however when the stop’s owner kicks him in the leg from behind and scolds him not to pee in front of his store.
Two hours later, the boy is back and has brought his friends — at least five or six older men, some of them carrying metal rods. In the ensuing conflict, the shop owner is beaten up, overwhelmed, dragged out of his store, and thrown on the sidewalk where the thugs rain down kicks and blows.
In a similar incident from earlier this month, a street cleaner in the Henan city of Ruzhou stopped a boy from taking a dump on the side of the road, only to be cursed at, beaten up, and spit at by the kid’s angry parents.
