    Reposting from the 11/14 thread. Police tear gas firefighters in Mong Kok in a brilliant move to encourage comradery among the uniformed services:

    A quick reminder that people have been mocking police officers about the fact that they don't need a degree to work in the police force.

    Beijing scouting for replacement for security chief John Lee

    It is understood that these “intermediaries” sent by the central authorities have approached a number of incumbent heads of the disciplinary forces to find out if they would be willing to assume the position of the security chief, only to be declined by all of them.
    According to a government figure, the Security Bureau no longer has any grip on the operation of the police force.
    Yeah, don't take it from me, take it from the government!

    Over the years, there is a prevailing view among senior officials that allowing a high-ranking police chief to serve as the secretary for security would ensure better checks and balances and help bring the law enforcement into line, according to the government source.
    How did they ever think letting the police police the police was a good idea, let alone "ensure better checks and balances"...

    This happened at the beginning of the DAWN week (Mon 11th) and I've missed a few popo propaganda briefings, so, was any fun narrative offered over the forceful arrest of the cannon-sprayed shopkeeper-terrorist?

    "Nothing to see here, just HK Police top spokesman calling universities “cancer cells”, move along."

    They've been using Maoesque cum Xi-Dadaesque Struggle lingo all along. Just a couple of days ago the same "lad" was referring to CUHK dismissively as the "supposed breeding ground for future leaders"...
