I'm glad they stood up for themselves. China is a very different nation. A nation that is extremely oppressed, and the people have absolutely nothing to lose. In America we still don't have oppression to that extreme, and even if we did people still don't want to lose their iPhone 5s. So the truth is I doubt that will happen here for a long while, but maybe I'm wrong.

While commenting on China, in China, I choose my words carefully, however, while that may seem a bit paranoid, I think it should be noted that China isn't as oppressed as some make it out to be. The Chinese people themselves also don't want to "lose their iPhone 5s"
The average LEO does a good hard honest job. I respect that fully and so should most.
It is the responsibility, with a sense of urgency if i were they, to root out and expose, or otherwise deal with the bad elements within their own ranks before push comes to shove.
“Such tragedies have happened again and again in recent years,” said Duan Xingyan, a user of Weibo who identified himself as a police officer. “The root reason is the severe lack of rule of law in our society.”

At least 4 Chengguan, the most hated police-inspectors in China, were beaten to death by angry people in Cangnan County of Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province (located in the industrial southeast), after they killed a man with a hammer. The police-inspectors hit the man with a hammer until he started to vomit blood, because he was trying to take pictures of their violence towards a woman, a street vendor. The man was rushed to hospital, but died on the way.
Thousands of angry people took to the streets, surrounded the police-inspectors in their van, attacked them with stones, bats, and beat them to death. People were shouting that the police-inspectors be killed on the spot for what they did: “Kill them! Kill them!”
These police-inspectors are notoriously violent, are rarely investigated or punished for their crimes, and are terrorizing people making a living. The Chengguan, which are a special combination between regular police and state inspectors, are called “violent government thugs” in China, thousands of them are on the state payroll in at least 656 cities. In July 2013, they beat to death a man and almost killed his wife, for trying to sell watermelon they had grown on their land. The crime of the Chengguan police sparked riots in the province of Guizhou.

This reminds me of another story I just read about a guy shooting and killing a cop that was about to shoot his dog.
Police brutality: out of control, and not just in the US. There is a certain satisfaction though that comes with instant mob justice for police thuggery. No paid leaves, no trials, and hey, just saved the people a bunch of money!
And all because they had to abuse a street vendor, and then brutally murder a guy who was trying to take pics of it.
That crowd was out for blood, and they got it. I am just amazed that more incidents like this don't take place in the US, except with hoards of people descending from the hills with guns to even the score. No guns needed there though. Bricks, rocks, and bats did just fine.
