Polish Man on Scooter Kicks Over Jaywalking Woman in Nanjing

Polish Man on Scooter Kicks Over Jaywalking Woman in Nanjing
Jan 13, 2016 By eChinacities.com

A foreigner on a scooter in Nanjing was caught on tape last month kicking over a woman as he drove by her. The incident occurred on December 28, and has since caught the attention of the nation.

The man on the scooter has been identified as a 32 year old Polish student at a university in Nanjing. The Polish man has been detained by Nanjing police. The man had allegedly insulted pedestrians in the area several times in the past few months, and had even insulted a local crossing guard. The foreign man has been sentenced to three days of administrative detention.

In the December incident, a Nanjing couple had crossed the road, and not used the crosswalk. The Polish man on the scooter drove by and kicked over the jaywalking woman. She fell over, behind a car.

The couple later told reporters that they had been dropping their children off at school, and the entire road had been blocked off by cars, even the crosswalk. The only way they could cross was to jaywalk.

The woman told police that the man that kicked her looked extremely similar to the foreign man known for insulting pedestrians in the area. Police said that the foreign man had also been speeding at 100 km per hour.

What's most annoying about such things is it might keep her alive! Next time, she might actually look to see if she's about to cause an accident. SOOOO many idiots in this country who don't bother either following laws, or even simply looking out for themselves, that so many get killed in accidents. While I may not kick said person in the butt like that (although really - she probably deserved it!), I do yell at drivers who don't stop when I'm crossing the road at the pedestrian crossing... or at ebikes on footpaths (when there's a nice safe road next to me).

What's disappointing about these stories is that it gives foreigners a bad name. I hope he rides safely next time.

Seems he has become quite proficient at kicking folks while on his scooter, based on the video and the article mentioning he has done it numerous times. I say either he is practicing his dance moves or football kicks...

Why are pole animals even allowed into decent countries like China?

I thought scooters are banned in bigger Chinese cities and as the article does not mention anything about breaking this law I doubt an electric moped can run 100 km/h

Not all bigger cities ban scooters, and even those that do often only ban them in downtown areas (and we all know that the bigger cities are *far* larger than their downtown areas).

While not condoning what the idiot on the scooter did, i notice that the previous 5-10 seconds are missing that may or may not show the pedestrian walking out in front of the driver and potentially causing an accident. Many pedestrians in china don't check for on-coming traffic. It is an incomplete story.

I honestly cannot think of a single legitimate reason to kick a pedestrian while riding past on a scooter or motorcycle. Even if the person walked in front of the rider, pedestrians have right-of-way in China (as in much of the world). In order to kick the pedestrian, he would have had to be alongside them (which he was), which means any danger has already passed. This was retaliation at best, and assholish and assault no matter what. Frankly, he deserves more than 3 days detention.

Sorrel You're brilliant. You are exactly right. I do believe there is no excuse but if he is clearly wrong, why not report the complete truth?

I agree with you. Though I also get highly frustrated at time in traffic. I would never do this kind of thing. This guy is just a common 'laowai'. I feel a stricter sentence should have been imposed on him

As I see it, you can tell that the rider has done a slight detour to the left and is accelerating away from the scene as he kicks her (yes, it's just there). From the angle he is veering to the left, it should be fairly clear to see that the woman would have been in front of the rider). So, I'm going to agree with Sorrel here - she walked out without looking, and he had to stop (suddenly) to avoid hitting her. So - a kick up the arse and a little fall down is NOTHING compared to being hammered by a bike going at speed. Yes, pedestrians have right of way.... but that doesn't mean they don't bear any consequences for their stupidity! (also, show me a city in China where drivers are fined for not stopping at pedestrian crossings!)
