At 8:30 on June 4, there was a stabbing incident at the Central Primary School in Wangfu Town, Cangwu County in China. After preliminary verification, the number of injured totalled 39 people, among whom 37 were slightly injured, while two adults ended up with more serious conditions, and all of them were admitted to the hospital for care and treatment with nobody being in life-threatening condition. The knife-wielding attacker was a security guard at the Wangfu Township Central Elementary School named Li Mouwen, a male of approximately 50 years old. This type of case was claimed to happen “from time to time” by the Chinese Communist Party, but the severity of the indecent typically determines the impact. Lots of netizens indicated that a criminal like this should be sentenced to slow death, calling him worse than a monster, and all sorts of other invective, but there are a lot more to this case than what has been revealed, and getting to the root cause is the best way to prevent a tragedy like this from happening again. Why did he attack people, because of mental illness, or revenge on society? Was the principal injured because he was protecting a student, or was he being retaliated against since he had a personal vendetta against this security guard? If the security guard was mentally ill, why did the school hire him as a security guard at the first place ? Did he pull some strings? Or was the local government trying to lower the unemployment rate by hiring him? What was it exactly that made a fifty year old man became a devil? Didn’t he know the legal consequences before he attacked? Why does this happen over and over again under the CCP ‘s ruling? This obviously isn’t the norm, and aren’t these questions worth pondering?
It also caught our attention that this event initially went viral, but why all of a sudden did it disappear on the internet? Why wasn’t there any search result for follow-up on the internet, other than what has been reported on the news previously? Why wasn’t there any more updates? If it wasn’t for the fact that he had gashed the students, the news would have fallen on the deaf ears. This is by no means to indicate that he was right to do so, after all, an injustice has been done, and no matter what he suffered, it could not justify him for hurting others; the moment when he raised the knife to stab the innocent people, he had abandoned his conscience and demonstrated what a coward he was by targeting vulnerable children. There is no doubt of his criminal act of committing intentional murder which should be subject to court and criminal charges. However, it is as important to investigate what has triggered it beyond the legal system itself. At least we need to have a grasp of why he lost his humanity.
Under CCP’s ruling, there is enormous social disparity between the rich and poor, the solidification of the social structure, the existence of exploitation and oppression, and largely ignored law system. The abuse of public power, selfishness and a mutually harmful society leave many people feeling desperate and helpless when they are oppressed without any means of resilience. Why would he attack children? Perhaps because of his disappointment in society after being treated with social injustice. When a powerless man jab a knife against another weaker party, you know that he is at the bottom of the food chain, and that he is as tired as a dog for his entire life by being at the bottom of the social hierarchy of the CCP, switching in the roles of being a “worthless” slave, the meat on the cutting board, and the vegetable waiting to be harvested！The anguish, injustice, and oppression he suffered, and his inability to vent in a form that a civilized society can accept, all those factors contributed to the inevitability of the incident. Now with the economic crash of the PRC and the tightening of social tensions, more and more cases like this will occur ! The security guard who waved the knife against innocent people in this news became both the criminal and the victim of the Chinese socialism system! I sincerely hope that the compatriots inside the firewall can wake up soon and see through CCP’s ugly face!
