    You need to take your rose tinted glasses off. The police (in general) have been extremely lenient and professional in what must be a draining and stressful period.

    Imagine going to work every day not knowing whether you will make it home, because the very people you are trying to protect are trying to kill you. Then on your days off it, you don't get rest because the protestors are abusing you and your family.

    Imagine that, for months on end. Just let that sink in.

    So for you it is OK to break the law as long as you are on the government's side? Yes or no?

    Where do you get your news? The protesters are not out to "kill" people or police. Yes firebombs have been thrown at police in cases, during clashes but please don't act like their are hordes of homicidal protesters roaming the streets. The lists of people wounded in the protests are primarily on the protesters side, which any stat will easily point out.

    Imagine that on the other side. Without the pay and weaponry.

    Exactly how tired were they on 12th June, before the months on end of beating and abusing protesters and members of the public?

    Yes, the dozens of dead police officers must really be weighing on their minds, Maybe, like you, they live in some fantasy world divorced from where normal people reside.

    Lunch with Joshua Wong - at Tak Yu ChaChaanTeng

    https://www.ft.com/content/11b3cfba-...c-bc9acae3b654

    Wong has been a recognisable face in this city since he was 14, when he fought against a proposal from the Hong Kong government to introduce a national education curriculum that would teach that Chinese Communist party rule was “superior” to western-style democracy. The government eventually backed down after more than 100,000 people took to the streets.
    I hear the sound of the wok firing up in the kitchen and ask him the question on everyone’s minds in Hong Kong: what happens next?

    Extraordinarily poor judgment, or just a push towards the inexorable slide to a police state?

    Good, thank the Global Times for unwittingly cleaning up our universities and purging the brainwashed locusts.
