It might not be so shocking for those who went to a public high school in most places around the world, but a video entitled ‘Student hits teacher’ has brought a flood of comments consisting of rabid death and sexual assault threats—directed at all the kids in the classroom—racist slurs and even a RMB 5000 reward for anyone who can identify those seen in the short. Days later, names have been found and the internet manhunt is on.
“The students were napping, talking, horsing around and one of them was roaming around filming. One student said: “This is the geography lesson. Watch the show.” Then he walked up to the teacher and removed the teacher's white hat. The class roared in laughter. Later, that student went up to the teacher and made for a physical confrontation. Another student threw a water bottle at the teacher while the first student yelled: “That stupid c*nt! Kill him!” The teacher just kept on with his lecture.”
The video can now be found at tv.Mofile. ‘Check out these pieces of garbage, everyone see the truth for yourself, don't be polite’ is how tv.Molive user XiaoXiao introduces the video which with has received over 100,000 and over twenty pages of comments, some of which have been translated below. For posterity's sake, the video has also been uploaded to YouTube and in just two days has also garnered over 100,000 views with over 150 pages of comments, many of which are in English, from Chinese viewers…

But you want to blame society because you don't respect your teachers?
Being old is not easy!
If his family, son or grandson saw the way you treat him they pull out a knife and chop you don't-know-your-heads-from-a-hole-in-the-grounds. [Expletive] now they have minors law protecting you at school, but once you come into society you [expletive] if you don't get your asses kick I'll come do it.
游客 2007-5-25 23:55:46 自以为自己爸爸妈妈有两破钱自己就是TMD大爷。拿无知当本事的一群社会垃圾。

游客 2007-5-27 21:17:18 当心gcd的网警…..
What you're not seeing here is the vast majority of the comments, all still very rage and violence. At this point the RMB 5000 bounty is put forth as increasing calls for someone to dig up the student's name and address are posted. Based on the accent in which the students speak, immediate speculation is that the school is either in Beijing or somewhere to its northeast, later said to be the former. Here's what was posted at tv.Molive:

Actually, a lot of the posts at the page the above user linked to are curses aimed at the webmaster for having deleted their previous posts on the subject.
游客 2007-5-27 12:51:43 MD，这群人渣，还不去死，上教育部网站找了半天也没找到邮箱和留言。

游客 2007-5-27 13:49:39 一群什么玩意儿！！！
Are these the students in our great capital?
Are they the hope of our motherland's future?
Are they the pillars of the Chinese people's future?
They've even lost the most basic respect for their teachers and educations. It's time for the country's education system to be reconsidered.
游客 2007-5-27 15:08:01 生气吗?我不生气!
These kids were made by incestuous parents!
Add to that their dirty environment, chaotic, inferior, unable to keep out the flies, bugs and dog shit. Their genes have mutated.
They've been spoiled rotten!!
游客 2007-5-27 22:03:36 弗吉尼亚理工大学应该多出几个抢手，到中国来把这些猪狗都毙了！！
游客 2007-5-27 22:56:03 这几个小子长大绝对是祸害,枪毙最好.我真的怒了,我很多外国朋友都看了这录象.他们都很愤怒.我30年第一次那么愤怒.
游客 2007-5-27 22:59:53 一直都觉得我们国家的教育整个变态了，没想到变态得这么严重！说到底是我们整个社会都病了！！~素质教育？这个的素质教育，真不知道十年，二十年后我们国家将变成傻样了？！~~
游客 2007-5-27 23:46:13 精英们责骂毛主席时代学生不尊重教师，现在没有人发动学生批斗老师了，怎么还敢有学生打教师呢？我们的教育到底出什么问题了？我为国家的未来担忧。
游客 2007-5-28 1:03:30 是北京海淀艺术职业学校的SB,已经找出了他们的名字,家庭地址,并且攻击了他们学校的网站…
I hope we can focus everyone's strength and come together to launch an internet manhunt!
游客 2007-5-28 1:05:37 这TM是不是人?

游客 2007-5-28 12:52:35 这就是中国丢弃几千年的传统教育而引进“先进的素质教育”的结果。
This is also what happens when people wave their fingers at others, contrasting the ‘low character’ of others with the highness of the citizens of the capital, the lowest kind of behavior there is.
Which direction ought China's education be going? Your guess is as good as mine!
Though to tell the truth, I am a teacher. If this had happened in my classroom, there would have only been one result: I would have sacrificed my career to get back the respect that teachers deserve.
Faced with a scene like this, I'd just like to ask our media: will you continue to beat us teachers on the head with the responsibility stick?
If you have conscience, then please, in your anger, tell yourself and your friends that while they're teaching their own children, to be diligent. Never raise them to be like this.
Not just for yourself, but for this nation and society!
One last comment from tv.Molive, in English:
