    My trust in the courts edged down a bit, and if I find out the particular judge, a great deal for him/her.
    Surely this is wrong. Anyones phone could of been put in that pile.

    I’m for, but only if it means replacing handguns with tasers on crowd control missions. Would avoid situations where blood thirsty officers grapple an unarmed protester while shooting another one.

    A 19-year-old has been jailed for possessing offensive weapons with intent.

    During routine home inspection in a Yuen Long housing estate undercover "raptor" tactical unit discovered the man possessing lethal sticks disguised as wooden door frame which he intended to fashion into deadly weapons to fend off patriotic triads roaming the area if they attempted to enter his family's flat.

    The court found no reason to believe the man's explanation that it was simply a door frame.

    Yes, it is parody I just made up but how many thought it within the realms of possibility after everything the popo and courts have done to Hongkongers in real life already? How long before this scenario actually happens?

    The twitter link refers to another arrest just in the news which inspired the parody and the photo is related to another story, both courtesy of HongkongFP.

    So two months after the Yuen Long attack where armed triads openly roamed the street unmolested, a citizen carrying a stick for self-defence was arrested and prosecuted? Wow, I’m highly comforted there’s rule of law.
