Sloppy Enforcement

Two young men suspect a fruit seller of tampering with his scale to cheat customers. They proved it on video and reported them to the authorities only to be greeted by sloppy, even apathetic enforcement.

Fortunately, netizens made the video go viral. The Department of Industry and Commerce was forced to act and admit its failure to act and even commended the duo for their actions. However, do note that what’s said in front of cameras may be very different from what’s done off camera.

The pragmatic and business-minded people (and that probably includes conniving officers on the ground) will hate these guys and accuse them of 唯恐天下不乱. Heroes like them rock the boat and threaten the secret of China’s economic miracle.
