Hazing in China, the same the world around
The New York Times reports on a disturbing June 2012 video posted on YouTube of severe hazing within a brigade of the People’s Armed Police, a Chinese group that provides for internal security and border patrol duties. It seems the veteran troops doing the hazing filmed the event proudly. Though military in function, the group is not part of the Army. Authorities said the video “exposed serious questions about the management of our unit. We are deeply shocked, hurt and blame ourselves.”
This is the sort of mistreatment the American military hopes to eliminate within its ranks, but changing the military culture is an uphill battle.
The disgusting video appears on the next page for those with the stomach to watch the brutal nonsense that is somehow sold to new recruits as a test of honor, to be in the club.
