A Tale of Two Buildings

 

 

The building of the police station in Zhenjiang Town, Jiangsu province commenced in 2008, and was first used as police station in September 2009. By November 2009, the local government decided that the area would be used for commercial development....so the compound was demolished.

The scandal was exposed by Chinese bloggers and resulted in wide criticism by Chinese internet users. Photos of the luxurious compound were spread on many website and blogs, and also, photos of some schools in the area, contrasting the two buildings and communist priorities.
