Arresting A Prosecutor

The ranks of the other mahjong kakis are not known, but the man answering the door at this apartment is a deputy public prosecutor of Baicheng City, Jilin Province. He has violated Covid restrictions by holding a mahjong party at his mother’s apartment.

We can see that the arresting policemen were very professional but polite, warning them that force could be used if they resisted arrest. But as vlogger Mr Li Lansi said, there is nothing to cheer about. Once the cameras are off, he could be released and the case could be dropped.

Contrast this with the sledgehammer treatment that ordinary citizens are subjected to when they are found gathering against Covid restrictions.
