China Jails 10 Year Old Because Her Dad Advocates Democracy

Posted by w_thames_the_d on December 21, 2013

Anyone who believes the rise of China is benign needs to read this. A 10 year old was jailed due to the actions of her dad. On a positive note, they should be happy she was not thrown into police run brothels.

Zhang Lin could tolerate serving house arrest for promoting democracy in China – after all, it was the fourth time he’d run afoul of the country’s repressive policies, and he’d spent over a decade in prison for his activism.

But when four policemen manhandled his 10-year-old daughter out of school, interrogated her and held her without food and water for 20 hours – becoming known worldwide as “China’s youngest political prisoner” – Dad was not about to abandon his little girl to the brutality of the Chinese police.

“I cannot submit to humiliation when my 10-year-old daughter was involved,” the activist reportedly testified earlier this week.

According to Amnesty International, a group of over 30 activists gathered in April to protest his daughter’s treatment at the hands of police, after which Zhang Lin was confined to house arrest. Then in June, Zhang Lin escaped house arrest and went to Beijing to continue his plea.

    democracy was “invented” in ancient greece. the birth place of western civilization. democracy is not perfect but it is the best we have in humanity- the chinese are a primitive tribe. they do not belong to the human species. therefore it is needed to smack them hard to become civilized. lucky us, china is weak and has an inferior DNA. china is a weak card house. it just needs a few kicks and it will crumble quite nicely. china is not a nation. they are not like japanese or any other civilized country. china is doomed and primitive. no culture at all. the change will come soon.
