"Dec 31, Carrie Lam, speaking to police: “Justice is forever on our side...All HK citizens, even those internationally who for now have been deceived and criticize the police, they will all eventually realize that this outstanding police force...is one of HK’s greatest assets.”

And then the crowd stood around, watching the police (this is where the people I was with wisely stepped back, I moved in for a better look). And some shouting at the police and, as I mentioned before, a couple of lame water bottle tosses. And then the police go bananas with the pepper spray and rubber bullets...then later the tear gas.
Oh and this is why I don't take photos at the protests- there are people doing illegal things and others who just don't want to be identified as having been there. I feel like I should respect their privacy- I took a couple of pics, once, of people's backs, I feel that's pretty safe. I wanted to take pics of the cops (one reason I moved in) but, yeah, once the pepper spray is deployed, that idea goes out the window.
