盘锦号 (Pánjǐn Hao): The Panjin

At the same time the official media was lauding the commissioning of “The Liaoning," China's first aircraft carrier, a news story broke in Liaoning province and garnered considerable attention. The story involved the death of Wang Shujie, an unarmed resident of Panjin who was shot and killed during the forced demolition of his home.

Netizens wryly commented that if ”The Liaoning" were renamed "The Panjin" it would strike greater fear into the hearts of the enemies.
