Killer Cop Pro­tected for Decades

NewsChina - - NETIZEN WATCH -

Bureaucratic clien­telism was once again proved to be a ma­jor form of of­fi­cial cor­rup­tion af­ter me­dia re­ports re­vealed that Chen Zhi­wei, a for­mer deputy di­rec­tor of the tech­nol­ogy of­fice of the Peo­ple's Procu­ra­torate of Hailin, Hei­longjiang Prov­ince, had been pro­moted, even though he was al­leged to have shot and killed a wait­ress in 1993 when he was work­ing in the lo­cal pub­lic se­cu­rity bureau. Be­com­ing in­volved in a spat with some friends in a karaoke bar, he drew his ser­vice re­volver and fired three shots, one of which hit the 19-year-old wait­ress. Other of­fi­cers cov­ered up the case for over two decades un­til the gang that Chen pro­tected was tar­geted in a re­cent anti-gang cam­paign. Ne­ti­zens were ir­ri­tated by the murk­i­ness of Hailin's ju­di­cial cir­cles, and asked when se­nior of­fi­cials are cor­rupt, who will de­mand jus­tice for or­di­nary peo­ple? Chen has now been ar­rested.
