A Chinese policewoman gets rewarded for providing unique assistance to earthquake victims.
Jiang Xiaojuan, 30, left her own baby with her parents and took part in the disaster relief work, breastfeeding nine babies, earning her the nickname of "the police mum" in the press.
She has since been awarded titles of "hero and model police officer" and "excellent member of the Communist Party," was appointed to the Communist Party of China Committee of the Jiangyou Public Security Bureau and became the bureau's vice commissar, Xinhua news agency said on Saturday.
There were some objections.
"They said an official position should not be used to promote a moral model."
Personally, I think China, or any government, can use all the good moral models it can get.
There were also supporters of Jiang's promotion, saying that what she did showed she was a good public servant.
Indeed, and probably a little bit sore.
