Fight Between Handicapped Beggars In Middle Of The Street Watched By Everyone

This video is such a wonderfully awful capsule of urban life in a lower-tier Chinese city. (Specifically Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei province, in this case.)

There are some thick accents at play here, so I’m not sure exactly what’s happening, but the best guess is there’s a territorial dispute. There are a lot of threats of hitting, but it doesn’t really happen until a quick flurry that starts at the 2:45 mark: the handicapped man swings his shoe; his ally, a standing woman, kicks, then strikes with a crutch.

Perhaps more interesting is how many spectators stand around and watch, blocking traffic.

At the 3:05 mark, a cop finally shows up. He points at the man and tells him to stop. The seated woman finally manages to get a clean shot in, a slap across the man’s ear. There are no winners.
