CNN) -- Authorities have fired an official in central China after city inspectors beat to death a man who filmed their confrontation with villagers, China's Xinhua news agency reports.
The killing has sparked outrage in China, with thousands expressing outrage in Chinese Internet chat rooms, often the only outlet for public criticism of the government.
Police have detained 24 municipal inspectors and are investigating more than 100 in the death of Wei Wenhua, a 41-year-old construction company executive, Xinhua reported on Friday.
The swift action by officials reflects concerns that the incident could spark larger protests against authorities, whose heavy-handed approach often arouses resentment.
Resentment? Well, when you're oppressed and tyrannized by the Chinese Communist Party all the time, of course you're going to be resentful!
"He was beaten to death for doing something which is becoming more and more common and which was a way to expose law-enforcement officers who keep on overstepping their limits."
This hardly does anything to make China under Communism and tyranny look civilized to the rest of the world.
The Communists will fail to fool the world as long as they continue their evil ways.
The solution, therefore, is the overthrow of the Chinese Communist Party.
Best leave the Party before that happens, as it will happen, unless the Party first terminates itself and its rule, turning over the government to a transitional governing body.
