In Shantou, Guangdong province, security cameras appeared to capture a kidnapping this morning while passersby watched on. Authorities are on the case and there are no further details at the moment — we don’t know, for instance, whether the woman forced into the white van (she’s pulled in by a man, who’s abetted by a woman wearing pink) knew her kidnappers — but it’s a startling scene. The Youku video description notes that people stood around and watched, but no one took action.
Hopefully someone off-camera at least called the cops, though it’s possible that the cynicism in this area runs so deep that people figured cops wouldn’t do anything. Again, just an unsettling scene all around. We’ve seen dogs get disappeared into these type of white vans before, but not people.
