On Monday, January 7, 2008, more than 50 of Tianmen city’s Chengguan – Chinese City Management Administration & Implementation of Law – enforcers dragged Wei Wenhua, a local blogger or independent journalist, out of his car and savagely beat him to death when they realized he was filming them as they fought with local residents.
Wei happened on a confrontation in the central Chinese province of Hubei between city inspectors and local residents of Wanba village protesting over the dumping of waste near their homes. A fight had developed when the residents tried to prevent trucks from unloading the rubbish. The villagers were upset because they said the waste was polluting the air and drinking water.
When the Chengguan saw Wei using his cell phone to record the protest, more than 50 municipal inspectors turned on him and beat him severely for many minutes. Wei was pronounced dead on arrival at Tianmen ‘s No.1 People’s Hospital.
