To everyone missing my point:
Among minority communities in Britain the police are not known for being kind and loving souls. They do commit abuses. I notice you skipped an article I posted from this year - 2019 - about police beating a non-white man whose car had a blue badge and was having a seizure which sparked community protests in response.
Police in America are more likely to shoot suspects (or non-suspects) because they have guns. And so do members of the public. So it is ridiculous to compare UK, French or any other force where officers do not carry guns. Because obviously people who do not have guns, cannot shoot anyone with guns.
HK police are behaving poorly absolutely. But let's not fall into the expat trap of then claiming everything done in the good old homeland is perfect.
Personally there is not a police force in the world that I as a citizen would implicitly trust.
