    Convicted for "rioting" because he hugged someone.

    He hugged an enemy of the state. Surprising he didn't get dozens of years of jailtime for that!

    A 78-year-old overthrowing the state, bet even he didn’t know he had that power with one home-made coffin.

    18++ months for participating in an unauthorised assembly.

    They were charged for organizing. Found not guilty of organising. Still sentenced to 18++ months for participating in an unauthorised assembly.

    Government tried to charge them for organizing, finally denied by court of final appeal.

    Technically, any of the ~1.7m Hong Kongers that participated in any of the 2019 unauthorised assemblies could get 18++ months.

    I guess if HK privatises the jails, it would be a money earner...

    Based on the translation, seems besides the minimum sentences imposed overriding the 1/3 discount for pleading guilty, the executive-led government is informing that there is no early release for prisoners (based on good behaviour or whatever norms, I don’t know), with the article referencing “Captain America”. Awaiting confirmation that this is policy and correct interpretation, but I feel safer already.

    before ICAC came along, the police were a real hoot. looks like a reversion to the mean.
