On October 20, a 10-year-old girl in Dalian was killed by a 13-year-old boy named Cai Mou, which aroused widespread concern.
Surging news earlier reported that Zhang, a 14-year-old boy from Changxing Island in Dalian, was filmed and uploaded to the Internet after fighting with others. Some netizens said that he was perfunctory in the face of accusations of shaking his legs. Because his appearance is similar to that of CAI Mou, the perpetrator of the above-mentioned case, Zhang Mou is mistakenly regarded as a murderer. Some netizens published their videos and pictures and abused them.
Such misunderstandings are not uncommon when hot events occur.
At the end of 2016, the case of jiangges murder was widely discussed on the Internet. In November of that year, Jiang Ge, a Chinese student studying abroad, was killed by Liu Xins ex boyfriend in Japan. After the incident, Liu Xin and his family were searched for human flesh by netizens, and an aunt in Qingdao unfortunately lay down her gun.
According to Beijing Youth Daily, Ms. Pan said that since November 12, her mother had been receiving calls from strange numbers, and the call had been connected, and the other side either shouted abuse or did not speak. After hanging up, there are still strange numbers calling. My mother thought that I had offended someone outside, and she was frightened at that time.
According to Ms. Pans rough statistics, in just three days, she received more than 2000 harassing calls and hundreds of abusive text messages. The irresponsible way of netizens really bothers me and my family, Ms. Pan said. When my family and friends cant call, the elderly are scared and cant work well.
On April 17, 2016, an express tricycle collided with a car in a small area of Beijing, the Beijing News reported. The car driver slapped and abused the courier many times after getting off.
Slapping courier behavior ignited the anger of netizens, and the address, telephone number and other information of slapping Mr. Li were quickly made public. In fact, Mr. Li has moved, the owner of the house on the address is Mr. Guo, and one of the phone numbers circulated on the Internet is actually owned by Mr. Rao of Jiangxi, which seems to have evolved into a human flesh farce.
According to CCTV news, Mr. Guos house was bought in March 2016, and Mr. Li, the attacker, has moved away. After the slapping incident came to light, Guo said, he was not worried about people sending things like birthday clothes and paper money to their homes.

He reserves the right to pursue damage to his wifes reputation by those involved.
How to protect the rights of innocent victims of cyber violence?
How should victims protect their rights when they are searched by human flesh, rumoured or subjected to internet violence?
In 2015, the media combed ten human flesh search cases and found that only two cases were protected by human flesh by legal means.
Xing Xin, a partner and lawyer of Hunan Jinzhou law firm, believes that human flesh search has certain significance of public opinion supervision, but it is hard to distinguish the good and the bad from the true. Some netizens think that they are doing good and acting for heaven in human flesh search, but most of the information itself is defamatory or forged, which has a serious impact on the victims.
Xing Xin said that human flesh search is often accompanied by violations of other peoples privacy rights, such as reputation right, name right, portrait right, etc.
Fu Jian told the surging news that on September 9, 2013, the Supreme Peoples court and the Supreme Procuratorate issued the interpretation on Several Issues concerning the application of laws in criminal cases such as defamation through information network, which clearly stipulated the criteria for entering the crime of defamation through network: defamation through information network, the same defamation information was actually clicked and browsed more than 5000 times, or transferred. If the number of times of occurrence is more than 500, it shall be deemed as fabricating facts and slandering others with serious circumstances as stipulated in article 246 of the criminal law. According to the criminal law, he will be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of not more than three years, criminal detention, public surveillance or deprivation of political rights.
Xing Xin said that if the relevant rights are violated due to human flesh search and internet violence, he can file a lawsuit with the peoples court. At the same time, according to the relevant provisions of the tort law of the peoples Republic of China, network service providers shall bear joint and several liability if they fail to fulfill their regulatory responsibilities and obligations.
Xing Xin suggested that Internet users should improve their quality and make clear the protection of privacy. It is not allowed to condemn, slander, slander, threaten or even harass, abuse, intimidate, molest, assault or other behaviors against morality or law in real life. If we use human flesh search purely to trick others, it is not only a violation of other peoples rights, but also a violation of the bottom line of morality.
