    "A police officer speaking on video told us this is a deliberate new tactic from police, aimed at deterring the wo lei fei and others from participating in protests entirely, even the newer and smaller gatherings like those against quarantine centers for coronavirus patients"

    If it beats like a policy and shoots like a policy, it probably is a policy.

    As Clam communicated in the recently leaked communique to the communists, they are taking advantage of the smaller numbers participating in demonstrations (specifically due to virus concerns) to "strike hard" and create the appearance of waning resistance. The newly appointed hardline CCP cadre replacements are obviously behind this inspired new "people first" policy.


    An overview of the main protest arrests since Christmas.
    2 patterns:
    1) mass arrests: Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, Sheung Shui, Tseung Kwan O, Tin Shui Wai, Mong Kok (twice)
    2) sharp rise in ratio of arrests to overall protesters: most of these protests were quite small in number.

    The slight problem with arbitrary arrests is that they also arrest off duty or auxiliary cops
