    There is some shock coming out of China as the videos gradually percolate over there.

    The police weren't wearing masks.

    Am I right in thinking that legally, the police are not able to go past that gate?
    It does seem the CG did give the nod of approval to the coppers to drag the victim back off the grounds.

    Do the UK, HK, other politicians really expect any investigation to give a satisfactory result...I actually think they do ;_; the response will be the same already given...

    The law only governs the law-abiding and no one else. Demanding for whatever response per protocol from someone who already gave you the finger upfront and then wait out the process, getting huffed up during it at subsequent storms in teacup just means you've "lost" the whole thing already. That's why I would have just gone in and karate chopped the consulate guys, rescue the protestor and whack a few more times when cameras not looking. You can't deal with China and get any real results using this politician shit. You'll just be wasting your own time...

    You ever visit a free country? No problem protesting peacefully. Sometimes a license will be required if it's an official rally (which will be issued, even to disgusting groups like Neo Nazis). Free speech.

    Why was the protester wearing a mask?

    I guess they did not want 28 generations of anyone related to them exposed to the wolfies?

    I'm not sure that a surgical mask really does the trick for that though.
