The police aren’t well-liked in China to begin with, but their image took a stupendous hit on October 28, when an officer in Guangxi shot two women in a noodle shop. One woman, who was five months pregnant, died. The officer, who was drunk at the time of the shooting, said that he fired his gun because the restaurant didn’t sell milk tea.
In this cartoon, a Japanese soldier from WWII visits the police officer.“What era are we in, anyway?” he asks, bayonet lowered. “You could at least think about your image.” Chinese TV constantly rehashes the “War Against Japanese Aggression.” You know it’s bad when the ghost of your national enemy scorns you.
