And nobody has contemplated the consequences of many hundreds (perhaps eventually reaching thousands) of protesters going through the legal process and the burden this places on the criminal justice system. Especially now with questions of entrapment, police brutality and lack of due process (denied access to lawyers), this will pose a challenge to the judges.
Of course, some are now suggesting the protesters may simply disappear across the border to the mainland. But we are not talking about a few booksellers who were kidnapped to the mainland here. We are talking about many many protestors. HK can kiss it's rule of law goodbye in that case.
