    Look forward to being HK airport baggage handlers, or turning to a life of crime that pays, when they get ouf.
    I sureley hope the baggage handlers at the airport are not ex-convicts....

    Thank you EC, much obliged.
    Wondering too what will happen if this goes to the Court of Appeal.
    I want to believe the Court of Appeal will make things right if Dufton J got it wrong.

    I am reading-rereading-rerereading-rererereading- the judge's Reasons for Sentencing, I think looks pretty detailed to me. Which in a case like this, he'd better be it is, as under super scrutiny.

    Whatever the "fair" sentence is, I hope he got it right.

    Cheers

    I think baggage handlers cannot have a criminal record, I knew a guy from an old job, meet him on the streets after many years and he said he was working at the airport and was dabbling in drugs for his own use, during a road block he was caught with ICE and sentenced to Lai Chi Kok detention centre, after that he said he can never work inside the airport (secured areas).

    Correct (in HK, elsewhere, I don't know). I would be careful about claims from the guy who suggested this idea. I'm surprised he can even renew his licence in this place.

    Police brutality has no place in Hong Kong, or in any civilised society. It doesn't matter if they were kicking seven kinds of shit out of a a triad, a murderer, a paedophile or a Occupy protester... assaulting a handcuffed and restrained prisoner is bang out of order. We have a judicial system to meter out justice to criminals, we don't let front line officers try, convict and administer punishment.

    What the fuck are Stephen Lo Wai-chung and Wong Kwok-kin thinking? I wish one of the CEO candidates would come out and condemn these remarks - sadly I doubt any of them have the balls for that

    I don't have much of an opinion on this case, but those cops aren't getting any sympathy from me with those silly matching suits.

    It's the only matching uniform they'd be allowed to wear for a while

    You'd be quite surprised and wrong...

    One of my Chinese uncle in laws was released from a mainland prison early last year, after serving a 3 year sentence, who was a high flying HK real estate agent... now works at Hkia, as a baggage handler on $12,000 a month. So, speaking from an experienced POV.

    Very pleased that HK does not tolerate police brutality and feel that for once justice is served with the 2 year jail sentence, termination and loss of pension to each of the 7 police officers. This sends a strong message to the community and the police force.
