I heard some protesters fell out with parents and moved in with other protesters.
Then I guess in some cases parents support the movement, especially bearing in mind until a month or so ago most marches were legal and at least started off peacefully.
I find it very hard to understand what possible legal reason the court had to grant a warrant. Even Lawrence Ma (rabid pro BJ lawyer) he couldn’t see the basis under criminal law (but that was before the warrant was granted).
I find it equally hard to understand why her family wanted to keep them secret. My thoughts are:
1. Police don’t know who she is and she wants to avoid arrest for illegal assembly (most likely, but she has been doxed on mainland forums)
2. Privacy especially while she recovering (again likely, but see above)
3. Injury not as bad as feared and she wants to keep the pressure on police (possible, in particular we know she not completely blinded so far)
4. It provides evidence that a protester shot her (can bet this police motive and global times will argue this, however I doubt xrays etc will contain any evidence about how injury caused only on nature and extent of injury).
You can never trust police press-conference, no matter you are a victim or a regular citizen.
So my understanding would be:
Having the court to prohibit police from obtaining such information, the girl and her family could hold a press con before the police doing it, so that they can provide a more complete knowledge to the public.
But at the end of the day, let's not forget the bottom line of who ultimately caused all this, Carrie Lam. She is responsible for the mess, not the protesters.
