What the heck is going on in China. Today, Wall Street Journal is reporting that a 16-year-old kid was beaten to death in “internet addiction” camp by his counselors. They were supposed to treat him but became agitated with him and ended up killing him instead.
The Chinese government is investigating the matter and has closed the internet addiction camp. Besides the atrocity of someone getting killed at a camp that’s supposed to be helping them, what the heck is an internet addiction camp? I can’t even believe there are such things. You want someone to stop using the internet, just cancel the service, get rid of the computer. There are much better ways to stop the “addiction” than sending a kid to a camp.
