This Man Used Homemade Bombs To Avoid Forced Demolition
When construction workers and 100 police overs tried to demolish his house. One Chinese man took matters into his own hands and launched homemade bombs.
According to a Chinese source, QTV Today, the man, named Wang, refused to have his house demolished as a part of an overpass project for the 2014 World Horticultural Expo.
The police officers couldn’t do much about it, so a friend was sent in to convince him to stand down. Finally, he surrendered and was arrested on the spot. His 3,000 square-foot home was demolished shortly after.
Forced evictions have been a “longstanding cause of discontent in China within China,” according to an 85-page report from Amnesty International. China has increased cleared residential path to make room for development, often refusing to adequetly pay the homeowners for their property. Local banks have borrowed money to fund stimulus projects, and then rely on land sales to finance it.
The Chinese authorities must immediately halt all forced evictions,” said Nicola Duckworth, Senior Director of Research at Amnesty International. “There needs to be an end to the political incentives, tax gains and career advancements that encourage local officials to continue with such illegal practices.”
There have been cases where Chinese residents who showed resistance or tried to interfere with the acquiring of their land, were arrested or beaten.
We’re not sure exactly how Wang put together his homemade bombs, but police say one man, who shot two women in a residential neighborhood in Denver, made his own homemade bomb out of “gunpowder and possible grenades.”
