Chinese police cage and interrogate a man for criticising a traffic cop in a ‘private’ message online

Chinese police cage and interrogate a man for criticising a traffic cop in a ‘private’ message online

A viral video from China shows a man in a medieval cage being interrogated by police.

 

According to the translation, the caged man, who says his name is Luhua, is remorseful for WeChat group messages where he criticised traffic cops for confiscating motorcycles.

“Uncle Police, I’m so sorry, I’m wrong,” Luhua pleads with the police officers, who demand information on the WeChat group and a grovelling apology.

He repeatedly explains the crime by claiming he was drunk.  He probably ended up getting off with a fine and a light beating.

What do you think?  Should the government and the police have access to private messages online?  Is this an overuse of government powers? 

Do you know of a situation where something similar has happened in your country?  If so, please contact me with the details.
