A Chinese man is under arrest for his public display of tension relief - beating up an innocent schoolboy. And incredibly Xiang Pai, 30, was able to pummel the lad a third of his size on a packed bus for 2 minutes with nobody stopping him apart from the bus driver - who was actually dragged away from helping the boy. The thug savagely beat and kicked the schoolboy on the bus to release what he called "pent-up depression and tension." A bus video camera captured his frenzied assault on the innocent 14-year-old boy. For two minutes he punched and kicked him with nobody coming to the child's aid. Afterwards he told police: "I just wasn't in a good mood that day." His road rage happened on a bus in the city of Wenzhou in east China's Zhejiang province. Xiao Jin, the victim, said: "I was just sitting there minding my own business when suddenly he laid into me. I had no idea what I had done wrong." Other passengers defended their behaviour and said thought the boy was a thief so were content to sit silently and watch his pummelling. And when the bus driver stopped his vehicle and marched up to the man and told him to lay off, Pai pulled a knife on him saying: "Back off or you will get this." The other passengers pulled the driver away, and he retreated to his seat and pressed a panic button for police. As the bus was stationary the boy managed to free himself and run down the street. The attacker escaped before police arrived but he was soon caught through video images. He told police he had been drinking that day and didn't feel well. "My mother was ill and I had to get a flat for my girlfriend and the whole of life got on top of me," he said. "I wanted to release the pressure by beating someone up." He faces a long prison term for assault and threatening behaviour. Sociologists in China say random violence in society is spiking as more and more people feel unable to cope in the new capitalist rat-race.
