The commander in charge of the scene is unhinged, keeps randomly screaming at the top of his lungs...

    Meanwhile, even though the Police Public Relations Bureau had told media organisations that they could arrange for reporters to take over from their colleagues stationed inside the university campus, officers on the ground apparently refused to allow that to happen.

    When several reporters, including two from RTHK, arrived at a designated location to conduct a swap, riot police pointed their guns at the journalists demanding that they leave the scene right away.

    They also ordered RTHK reporters to stop filming with their cameras, saying they would be arrested for rioting if they did not leave immediately.

    The descent into a police state is a deliberate policy.


    Many people here should know what the "next step" meant for Tibet...

    PRC's despot-for-life keeps returning to the totalitarian themes of his formative years; those good old times when people learnt where their place was. (his was obviously at the top of the heap)


    HK professor Simon Shen:

    HistoryLesson the 1959 “Stop the violence” script for Tibet. According to Mao, instead of political resolution, the key is to create conflict among crowds, even small problems should be escalated. The more chaotic the better, only then the next step can begin.

    Nobody "watches the watchmen" any longer, but we know what organization they take their orders from.

    #BREAKING #HongKongProtesters: @hkpoliceforce warns they will use LIVE ROUNDS to fight back if protesters attack officer by lethal weapons like petrol bombs, arrows and vehicle. It's an official warning issued from police headquarter at midnight.

    Coincidentally, only an hour earlier (11pm) CCP mouthpiece Global Times' chief had issued a statement:


    "Urge authorization of HKPF to use stronger weapons like rifles vs rioters using bows and ball bearings. Police snipers with live ammo shd target rioters with bows and deprive their fighting ability. In case of rioter deaths, police needn't assume legal liability" new @HuXijin_GT

    Police Violates Press Freedom Across Different Districts


    1900 Tsim Sha Tsui
    While the police pushed forward, they used their shield to push at the press and threatened the foreign press in English.


    With an unfriendly tone, they called the press “stupid press” and told them “do not complain if you get shot”. They also “guided” the press how to film, telling them “the protestors are just cockroaches, do not film them.”


    2125 East Tsim Sha Tsui
    The police used bright torches to shine at the press. They yelled, “Leave now! corrupted press!” while they were retreating their cordon line.


    2139 Jordan
    The police claimed that they are friends of the press.

    I wonder for the umpteenth time if there are no word(s) other than the same repetitive monosyllabic "cockroach" that comes from the Govt fed and brainwashed mouths of the po-po. Don't they ever learn/study to enrich their vocabulary?


    This cockroach. That cockroach. What are they, then?


    Of course, they too are - cockroaches. Elite cockroaches.The protesters are HKers, and so are they. Cockroaches at war.I prefer the non elite ones.
