Going to the best time of rest in China to examine fine Chinese gardens, the Chinese bridges and other Chinese sights, we advise to you not to lose vigilance that it was not necessary to become closely acquainted more with the Chinese militia.
(Committee of public safety, or PSB, гунъань цзю in Chinese) it is simple to recognise employees of the Chinese militia on a green uniform and caps though them can be even more, than it seems at the 1st look, – many policemen draw the duty is concealed. At them even more abilities, than at their western colleagues. In their number, and it is concrete, definition of fault of criminals enters – courts in China only pronounce a sentence accused (though now the situation changes, and in China there were already sprouts of independent legal proceedings). If the offender specifies obvious repentance, he can count on softer sentence. The Chinese laws are cruel, for many terrible crimes (corruption, rape, etc.) serves as a sentence the death penalty through execution. As it is regrettable, but execution I will give in China still not uniqueness
Prerogative of PSB is also supervision of foreigners. To address in police to you it is necessary, if the visa to China asks extensions, for filing of application about theft or loss of things and documents, also for receiving permission to arrival in the closed zones of the country (generally to Tibet). Policemen can and look after you. For local militia in the nature of things to be knocked to you in number, if you тормознули on a lodging for the night in the deaf town from time to time visited by foreigners. But be not anxious: they, most likely, will be limited to verification of passports and will leave.
You will be pleasantly struck jealous with a role of certain policemen in the solution of the questions which have seemed at you, but the service has the same difficulties, as police though what other country of the world. Corruption in it prospers, and it is better to reduce the contacts to it to a minimum.
