Richard Spencer: China parades ‘the guilty’ to placate Japan

From the Telegraph:

Chinese police have paraded 42 anti-Japanese protesters on television, in the clearest sign that the communist leadership is determined to halt violent demonstrations and set a friendlier tone towards Tokyo.

Some of the detainees, caught on camera hurling bottles and vandalising Japanese restaurants and cars in Shanghai 11 days ago, made public confessions.

“I let down my university, my teachers as well as my students,” said Yin Xiufeng, a university physical education instructor. “I hope others can learn a lesson from me.”
