Hoping he makes a fully recovery despite the original grim prognosis.
    Thx for the update.

    Even if we accept the argument that the first push was in response to a unobeyed request to move the second one is 100 percent indefensible.

    If they can’t ID the offender could they bring a case against the officer in charge?

    And this is why I try to watch the police press conferences (especially on Mondays) because you can't possibly imagine what BS excuse they can come up with. I want to hear directly from the police these lame explanations...

    Glad to see now tv adding English subtitles to their reports

    Worth a watch. Specially the part where the barrister volunteer heads to police stations and hospitals looking for people.

    So annoyed that I saw this recruitment ad for the auxiliary police force on GeoExpat.

    I thought Google should know how I felt about Asia’s “finest”... apparently not.

    I wonder how much money has to be spent in this ad campaign to recruit more police, while hospitals are overcrowded and understaffed.

    Why did they choose Poly U to seige?
