Yesterday, CMP reported the story of a street-side peddler in Guangzhou’s Haizhu District handled roughly by urban management officers, or chengguan (城管), as they tried to make her clear off. Posts alleging that the officers were excessively rough with the woman as her toddler looked on in terror are still being shared widely on the internet and social media. The following cartoon, posted by artist “Johnny Won” (原子漫画) to Sina Weibo and shared widely by others, depicts chengguan as wolves (a rather common association) abusing the woman at the center of this week’s story. The artist drew the cartoon on top of one of the original photos from the scene.
