Chinese police use money to light cigarettes
Chinese people are still struggling to make money in the context of the Covid epidemic and natural disasters raging everywhere. Therefore, any money earned has cost them sweat and tears.
But a video leaked online showing the actions of a Chinese police officer made everyone angry. Dressed in uniform with a police identification number, the officer arrogantly burned a 100-yuan bill (worth about $14.80) to light a cigarette. Unfortunately, other police officers around are encouraging him.
Is their money so easy to earn that they see it as a piece of paper to burn?
Haikou suddenly enforces temporary lockdown management
Haikou, a city directly under Hainan province, has now implemented stricter management measures to control the Covid-19 epidemic.
