Being a maintenance worker, janitor, garbage collector and any other sanitation-related work is not an easy feat. Aside from the backbreaking work and meager income, people tend to look down on them just because of their work. Instead of appreciating their toilsome duties, some people deny them gratitude and even respect. One of them is this Chinese professor who received backlash after being caught brutally beating a female street cleaner in broad daylight.
In Xi’an Province, China, a violent incident involving a university professor and a female street cleaner was caught on camera last October 4. The incident was first shared on Weibo by a concerned netizen from Tianjin.
According to a report published in What’s On Weibo, a male professor from Shaanxi University of Science and Technology and an unidentified woman were spotted beating up a female street cleaner. Apparently, an argument broke out when the female street cleaner unintentionally blocked the driveway with her truck while collecting the garbage.
The professor and his female accomplice were annoyed that they couldn’t get their cars out and proceeded to beat the poor street cleaner until she was bleeding profusely.
“On October 4, 2017, around 2 in the afternoon, a male and female college staff member beat up a female sanitation worker. I want to expose these two pieces of scum.
I was just resting indoors when I heard a loud weeping coming from outside the window. I initially thought that parents were teaching their child a lesson, but after a few minutes, the crying grew louder and it did not sound like a child.”
From the window I then saw a female sanitation worker slowly getting up from a pile of garbage, while a woman was pushing her, yelling: ‘How much money do I make and how much money do you make? You’re now keeping me from making money!’
Fortunately, several people who witnessed the incident decided to intervene and stood up for the poor street cleaner. When onlookers arrived at the scene, the pair tried to escape. The Chinese professor even had the audacity to defend himself by saying that he sought permission from the street cleaner before beating her.
People all around the globe were shocked by the barbaric deed of this Chinese professor and his female accomplice. They expressed sympathy to the poor street cleaner who was just doing her job. Check out some of their insights below.
Ever since this issue broke out, local news outlets have confirmed that the Chinese professor was already terminated from his teaching post because of his barbaric acts. On the other hand, it is still not confirmed whether the victim would be filing criminal charges against the professor and his accomplice.
