First Arrest (Ever!) For Sexual Harassment in China

Many US employers have been requiring their male and female workers to attend sexual harassment seminars to help prevent nasty lawsuits surrounding the issue. China's companies aren't responsible for harassment among staff, but the country has taken a huge step in the right direction to address the crime of sexual harassment.

The country passed laws banning harassment and domestic violence three years ago, and the first arrest has just been made under these laws. An office manager swayed a new female employee into his office under the premise of discussing work matters, and once behind closed doors he admitted that he wanted to be her boyfriend.

The manager reacted to being turned down by grabbing the woman's neck and kissing her. A scream led co-workers to call the police, and the man has been sentenced to five months in jail.

The guy is power trippin and/or cant handle rejection. What if nobody heard her scream? What if it was a dark alley? Nobody should be tricked in to having their neck sucked like a vampire by some fugly. Think about your girlfriends and sisters at work with monkeys like this around.

That's not sexual harrasement. I think that the man should not be put in jail at all. It's a bit ridiculous.
