China Rape Arrest

Allegations of rape against a Yongcheng city official have been circulating on Chinese microblogs. The official has been accused of raping ten girls and has been arrested and has confessed his actions. Not much information has been released on this story, especially concerning the role of netizens in venting their anger, however the press releases I've read all seem to insinuate that the arrest was a result of anger on the Chinese internet.

The story at BBC News: here.

Found a more extensive news article pertaining to this story, from Euronews.
“Officials these days are all like this. It’s really terrible,” wrote one Weibo user.
“These dog officials are everywhere. Only execution will sate the public’s anger,” wrote another.
