Chengguan Arrives In Liberty City

Known for their violent tactics in China, the chengguan (or city administrators) are getting international credit in the new version of Grand Theft Auto. From EastSouthNorthWest:

Recently, the American online game “Grand Theft Auto 4″ began to offer a “Chinese chengguan” skin to users.  The main character Niko Bellic wears a uniform with the Chinese words chengguan (城管) on the back to become the rule of the streets.  He drove an armored car with the words “Administrative Law Enforcement” (行政执法) to clean out the street vendors in Central Park.

Thus, the unwelcomed chengguan of China are now famous overseas.

I am a municipal administrator in Liberty City. I have just completed my training in China. Today is my first day on the job!
