A Chinese activist, who helped villagers displaced by building of the Gorges dam, after being summoned to the police station, was beaten up on his way home.
He was hit in the back, his 3 vertebrae were injured, and is not expected to walk again.
The police, who found no footprints near him, concluded that he beat himself up to fabricate a story.
holy crap. If these people are going to make stuff up, at least make it look credible. Maybe there were no footprints, cuz they tossed him from a moving vehicle.
