Hong Kong protests: did police use Israelâ€™s Cellebrite hacking tech to crack protestersâ€™ smartphones?
Thatâ€™s actually what a lot of fair-minded people want. If theyâ€™re going to persecute, excuse me, prosecute protesters, the least they can do is provide some accountability, hold police committing crimes responsible, and just as importantly, discourage further abuses by people in uniform with way too much discretion already because they think itâ€™s normal and/or they can get away with it, which is good for nobody of whatever sympathies.He stressed that he is not targeting the force as a whole, but doesn't want to see any officers who have committed crimes going unpunished.
People against violence on both sides (which clearly includes moderates and pro-establishment voters) can and do support an independent inquiry. I very much appreciate those who still do support the protests as a whole despite the actions of the more extreme radicals (and pronounced flareups aggravated by government/police actions [protest bans, undercovers, headshots, live rounds, mask bans]).
