A young man named Yang Huajun (not his real name) likes to go online, one time by chance he joined a QQ group, and the members of the group often posted some pornographic videos and pictures. Out of curiosity, Yang Huajun often watched these pornographic materials, not for long, he started to download them in order to view them at any time. Until he was arrested by the local police, he was not aware of that his action had violated the law.

Yesterday, Nanxi County Yibing City Public Security Bureau’s network monitoring unit responsible person said: This unit has just cracked a case of allegedly using the Internet to spread and copy pornographic contents. The suspect Yang Huajun was arrested.

On February 26, 10 am, Yang Huajun had just turned off his computer and was preparing to go out from his home, then he heard a knock on his door. He thought it was his relatives so he hurried to open the door. When the door was open, there were numbers of unfamiliar faces; these strangers were the police officers of the Yibing Public Security Bureau network monitoring unit and the Nanxi County Public Security Bureau network monitoring unit.

The police examined Yang Huajun’s laptop computer and a desktop computer hard drives and identified a large number of pornographic materials allegedly downloaded from the Internet, including 39 video files (about 7 gigabytes), 526 pornographic pictures (about 80 megabytes). After the arrest, Yang Huajun confessed that he always loved the Internet. About six month ago, by chance, he joined a QQ group, dozens of the group members from time to time uploaded a few obscene pornographic videos and pictures, including some erotic videos and photos of celebrities in the entertainment circles, such as photos of naked actresses in the “sexy photo gate” (Edison Chen photo scandal).

“I was very curious, so often go to the group to browse” Yang said, and later it became a habit. For the ease of viewing, he directly downloaded some of the obscene pornographic videos and pictures onto his computers at home and built a dedicated folder so he could view them at any time.

Before the Spring Festival this year, the police began casting a huge net for catching the suspects using the Internet to spread pornography. Nanxi County Public Security Bureau Network monitoring unit was directed by the Yibin City police, to take over these big cases of distributing porn on the Internet. After receiving the order Nanxi county leaders, county Public Security Bureau chief Peng Yunli immediately asked the County network monitoring unit to investigate in the shortest time possible, to gather evidence and lock down the suspects.

Yibin City and Nanxi County, two network monitoring surveillance departments investigated from nearly 30 leads. And after half of month, one QQ number repeatedly jumped into their sights. After verifying that QQ number account often downloaded obscene videos and pictures from the Internet, its owner Yang Huajun was quickly locked up by the police.

According the captain of the network monitoring team Liu Yngna, the suspect when captured did not know his action of downloading pornography violated the law. He thought watching porn at home did not provoke anyone else. He reminds the public to pay attention to the connection between the virtual community and the real world. Online and offline are connected, when people’s actions in the virtual world are “dishonorable” can still be a crime.

Liu Yingnan pointed out that the suspect only was watching porn at home, he did not distribute them or try to make a profit. According to the 1997 “Computer Information Network and the Internet Security Protection and Management Law” promulgated by the Ministry of Public Security: Any organization or individual may not make use of the International network for copying, viewing and distributing obscene, pornographic contents. Yang Huajun was punished with a warning and a 3,000 yuan fine.

    When the police barged in I believe it would have been perfect timing for the good old “Don’t you have some thieves to catch?”. I guess its more fun to “examine the evidence” in these cases than going out to do some actual police work. My friend who got burgled 2 months ago is still waiting for the police to begin investigating. So far all they’ve done is dust for fingerprints in his flat. My friend even got the security guards to review the elevator camera with him (with a timer and digital floor-stop signature on it) and the only guys who could have done it within the time frame clearly show up. Still 2 months later the police haven’t even come around to ask for the tapes or been to the other 3 apartments on his floor to ask if someone know those 2 guys in cleaning uniforms on the video.

    Most stupid thing is that when my friend told his Chinese boss about the whole thing about a week ago he laughed out loud and wasn’t the least bit surprised. Apparently in those cases you need to contact someone holding guanxi with the police or set up a “reward” if they solve the case. I assume a couple of cartons of smokes could help speed things along as well. It’s no wonder many homes here have a supply of batons and mace to defend themselves if needed.

    this is fucking ridiculous
    no wonder this news got 8000+ comments in the oringnal site

  6. Schamotnik says:

    The question is: Did he masturbate? Did he release innocent sperm? They are the real victims here…

    • lee annie says:

      hahahaha you are sick schamotnik, why would it matter if he masterbate????? do you want to give him a hand? i bet you do you fudge packer
      for your info, who the hell wouldnt wack it with all those videos and pictures, do u think he is trying to learn health sciences?????

      no jacko, he is plastering cocaroaches on his wall with the sticky web like spider man, that dude is pretty ugly by the way, more power to him for releasing it all, hopefully all of it so he wouldnt produce anything of that nature in the future

  7. huzhang says:

    Just legalize porn already. The only difference it makes is that people will spend less time trying to find ways to download Japanese porn and go straight for the domestic stuff instead.

  8. Laoshi says:

    “uploaded a few obscene pornographic videos” God, what morons! What’s obscene about porn? No, the Chinese government is obscene. The police are obscene. This law is obscene. Not porn.
    Sucks to be Chinese. When I’m in China I download porn all the time. Bite me, communist cunts.

  9. CBC says:

    The Chinese government should spend their efforts on cracking down real crime that cause bodily harm such as assault, rather than patrol the internet for pornography content.

  10. Wang Er says:

    Every university student I know has being downloading and watching porn at dorm and I bet the police themselves have been doing the same in their college life. The 1997 law seriously needs to be updated, though I rarely heard it has been actually enforced in recent years (but every time it’s enforced there’s uproar).

  11. waiguoguizi says:

    Another variation of the same story. Happens just to often.

  12. b-real says:

    Meanwhile 8 kids were killed by mentally unstable guy in Eastern China.

  13. Daniel says:

    I hope they don´t do that in every house… can you imagine?? There would be more people in jail than in the streets… Doesn´t Hu Jintao have porn??

  14. yeah says:

    This will sure help out the local DVD peddler. Why risk downloading when you can just buy a DVD for 5RMB from a street vendor.

    • Steven the 2309th says:

      I think it’s ok to allow people to watch adult materials as long as the stuff itself doesn’t contain illegal contents(eg. rape or murder). Even my girl and her roomates visit those adut websites in their dorms. The law should have been changed. They still think China is in 1768? Women strip frequently in movies directed by the top directors in China and even scenes making love. What’s the different?
      By the way, China Police are not asses. Just too many asses mingled in it.

  15. Steven the 2309th says:

    Am I being monitored? Hello, you cop guys.
    Haha.

  16. Jack says:

    It’s all part of the Chinese population control plan. Watching porn is like instructional video on how to make babies. So all porn is outlawed. Especially porn that shows communist party members expressing special love to young boys. DOH! Just kidding.

  17. Miller says:

    Funny nobody noticed… the picture has his face blurred but not his reflection in the mirror. Probably not the real guy but..

  18. Gracie Hayes says:

    i can say that i miss jacko so much coz i am one of his die hard fans,:”

  19. wypadek przy pracy says:

    Heutzutage kann niemand das Leben ohne Computer vorstellen. Was die Arbeit und die Studie wäre ohne sie aus?
