In America, this would have earned her a horrible reputation, probably cost her her career with the police force, and would have been a controversy that would have somehow “shocked” the media and therefore the public. Instead, she was declared a hero, and now holds a high position in her field. Well done, China!
Twenty-nine year old police officer, Jiang Xiaojuan, left her six month old baby with her mother to take part in disaster relief efforts, after the 2008 earthquake.
Xiaojaun breastfed nine babies during her relief work and was nicknamed “The police mom”.
Since then she was appointed to the Communist Party of China Committee of the Jiangyou Public Security Bureau and is now the bureau’s vice commissar. This was after she was awarded the titles of “hero and model police officer” and “excellent member of the communist party” – all for her breastfeeding efforts in the field.
What did Jiang Xiaojuan have to say about it? Well, according to the CNN article,
“I think what I did was normal,” she said. “In a quake zone, many people do things for others. This was a small thing, not worth mentioning.”
“I feel about these kids I fed just like my own. I have a special feeling for them. They are babies in a disaster.”
She fed up to nine babies, and she’s still feeding two children whose mothers lost their milk during the events of the quake because of the stress. What an incredible lady.
“I think we should switch places. When camp’s over, I leave as you and go back to London and you leave as me and go to California.”
I LITERALLY STILL DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW THEY MADE THIS FILM WITH ONLY ONE LINDSEY LOHAN

Banks can borrow billions at 0% interest. Students are going to have to pay 6.8% interest rates on their loans starting this summer. Elizabeth Warren just dropped a bill to turn that around.
