China’s internet police are so scary they can cause a grown man to faint.:
In Chongqing, China, the police inspection team entered an Internet bar in the morning. About seven or eight students were present. One student was concentrating hard on pornographic websites and was totally unaware of the police officers behind him. The officers stood there for a miute and then they asked him to cooperate. The student stood up, his body wavered and he passed out. The police gave him some water and he came to a few minutes later. He said, "I was scared." The student was brought back to the station when he apologized and was let off with a lecture and a warning.
