    Although news of an arrest at Tsing Yi MTR station last night is reliably corroborated by local district councillors, it remains far from clear whether reported incidents outside Tai Po amount to a coordinated arrest operation

    But protesters will surely remain on edge regardless

    Riot police out in force in Taipo on Ting Kok Rd between Tai Wo fire station and temple.

    No idea why.

    People do fear a knock on the door in the middle of the night in totalitarian regimes.

    How many of these middle of the night arrests will end up making it to a conviction?

    Each one rougher than the next...clearly bullies, because the more of them handling a detainee, the rougher the treatment they feel is “appropriate”

    What on earth is the justification for violently snatching people already in line to be searched...if anybody ever gets the upper hand on the brutes in uniform, don’t expect any residual sympathy even from less ideological observers if they are going to earn what they get from acts like this being their norm.
