Chinese protester opposing government takeover of village land 'is crushed to death by state-controlled road-flattening truck'
Protester He Zhu Hua, appears to be crushed in shocking images
He opposed being moved after government tried to claim land for commercial use
Reports claim government then tried to hide body and sent security to quell anger from residents
This is the horrifying moment a Chinese protester was allegedly brutally crushed to death by a government road flattening truck over a land dispute.
The demonstrator had apparently resisted a government relocation when he appeared to be crushed by the huge vehicle on the orders of a Chinese government official.
The victim, named as He Zhi Hua, had refused to accept a small sum to relocate from Changsha Village in Hunan Province, where government officials want to claim land for commercial use.
Instead, when Hua began lying down on the land in protest, a construction vehicle reportedly crushed him to death with its huge rollers, allegedly on the orders of the local Vice Mayor.
The local authorities had already evicted many others from Changsha Village when the state-owned construction vehicle carried out the killing, according to reports.
Shocking pictures from the aftermath appeared to show the man's remains splattered under the rollers of the giant construction vehicle.
It is unclear exactly what the pictures show, however, and there is a possibility the incident could have been an accident.

Protest: Residents in Changsha Village, Hunan Province, had earlier demonstrated about being moved from their homes as local authorities wanted to use their land for commercial buildings
Brutal: A pair of human feet can clearly be seen underneath the giant wheels of the Chinese government road-flattening vehicle. Reports have claimed that Chinese government officials tried to hide the body after the man was horrifically crushed to death,

wow, that reads exactly like how they would write it in the US lamestream media.
Another Rachel Corrie moment.
Just another bump in the road.
Similar deaths ... but they don’t compare.
He Zhi Hua died standing up for his individual freedom and property rights.
Rachel Corrie died died defending Palestinian terrorists the “right” to annihilate Israel.
Thomas Friedman China good governance two thumbs up.
Well it worked for Arthur Dent.
Not funny. A brave man gave his life for a good cause.
Reminds me of all those speeches where Obama and company expressed admiration with how much easier it is to govern China.
Not even close...
Rachel Corrie was another kind of sumpin....
No, this is not.
Comparing Israel to Red China is offensive to boot.
Did you happen to see the thread about the DHS “Panzer” division??

My hat’s off to that man. That is a testament to belief. Whether or not you agree with what he stood up for - he believed enough to die for it. That is intestinal fortitude to the n-th degree.
As a Christian, I always ask myself if I have what it takes should my faith be tested to that extreme. It’s one thing to say - sure, I’d lay down my life for Christ - but it’s quite another to actually suffer & die. I don’t know but I like to think my faith is strong enough.
There is no pool of blood or other signs of a body being crushed. Looks like a person crawled under the vehicle while it was sitting still and they threw some animal guts in front of the wheels. Look at the picture from the front and you can see that the person is not flattened.
Also, if this is such a top secret event, why did they allow someone to take pictures not only from the side but the front as well? Where is the government personnel who carried this out? Why did the vehicle stop instead of continuing on?
Too many things do not add up in these photos.
But will the U.N. utter even a peep in condemnation of the act? I doubt it.
Dang, you beat me to it!
If you look at the photographs, it would seem to indicate that the feet should have been crushed as well.
