    Anyone have an idea what's going on in Sheung Wan right now?

    I just read an interesting quote on something that happened on the other side of the planet, in a different context, but it's interesting how valid it is for Hong Kong:

    “The question for me is: At some point, will one side prevail? Will the government succeed in repressing its way out of this problem. I find that hard to believe.”

    I would guess they are most certainly in violation of some laws.

    Extremely reassuring to hear that police officers are concerned with arrestees’ rights.

    Blue-on-blue action. Clearly no police officer did anything wrong, it was just another happy result of the police always doing the right thing.

    Totally normal behaviour from your friendly policemen.

    R. Dover and D. Jordan were out there today. Also interesting to note that Marine Police were in charge of crowd control today (yeah the same friendly neighborhood cops you see on Peng Chau or Cheung Chau).

    Nice to know what I do with my body is not determined by me or even the law, but whatever a random unaccountable policeman feels.
