  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • kids do the darndest things.

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored.

  • I’m your host, Chris Chappell.

  • Check this out.

  • It was posted a couple weeks ago

  • on Chinese social media.

  • This three-year-old kid picks up a steel pipe,

  • like he’s gonna fight off a bunch of police officers.

  • What a riot!

  • Even the police officers are filming it.

  • The video is so cute that China’s state-run People’s Daily

  • posted it to their YouTube channel.

  • Wait

  • the People’s Daily has a YouTube channel?

  • YouTube is blocked in China.

  • But I guess there’s no harm in showing the rest of the world

  • how cute Chinese toddlers can be, right?

  • Haha, look at that!

  • Wait

  • it sounds like he’s screaming,

  • Don’t bully my grandma!”

  • Dang! He seems genuinely angry.

  • And these police,

  • well, theyre not really police.

  • Theyre calledchengguanorurban management.”

  • Chengguan are the taskforce that’s supposed to enforce city laws

  • related to street vendors, traffic, and so on.

  • But they have a reputation for being corrupt.

  • And brutal.

  • Like that time in 2011

  • when chengguan beat a one-legged fruit vendor to death.

  • Or in 2013,

  • when chengguan beat a watermelon vendor to death.

  • Or in 2014,

  • when chengguan assistants beat a 70-year-old man to death.

  • I mean, he did criticize them.

  • But clearly,

  • a three-year-old couldn’t have read those articles.

  • No, he just intrinsically understands that these chengguan are bad guys.

  • And if theyre after his grandma,

  • it’s worth taking the most extreme action to stop them.

  • And the videos of this kid have become online sensations in China,

  • getting millions of views.

  • Although there’s not much info on who this kid is

  • or what the chengguan were doing to his grandma,

  • it seems every netizen has an opinion.

  • This weibo user writes:

  • His grandmother is so blessed.”

  • This user said:

  • “...This proves that from a child’s perspective,

  • chengguan have a bad image. Thought-provoking.”

  • And this user writes:

  • This little boy has gone mad...

  • and the adults don’t know how to restrain him.”

  • There was even an online survey that got more than 100,000 responses.

  • 47% saidThe kid’s just protecting his family,

  • that’s all.”

  • 35% saidFirst, I need to know if the chengguan

  • had roughed them up prior [to the video].”

  • And 18% saidIt’s a bit troubling

  • a child this young is resisting the law.”

  • I feel like this survey might be more of a reflection

  • on what Chinese people think of standing up to authority in general.

  • And authorities better watch out.

  • Because someday, this toddler

  • might become the next Ip Man.

  • So what do you think?
