    What’s worse giving the privilege of buying guns to Americans or these so called “protestors”.

        For all y’all saying that American police would do the same thing, I’d like to inform you that American police for many years now have adopted a defensive strategy when it comes to riots. Because they aren’t aggressive like the HK police, and they usually are separating two opposing groups that are fighting each other, an American officer would never be separated like that.

          I think violence with the protestors may be staged, or rent a protester. I remember hearing about the same thing in the Bahrani revolution, done simply to make the protesters look bad.

                      I could have shot 5 fleeing Rioters on their butt if I am the Police.
                      And if rubber bullets, I would aim to the head.
                      Lucky protesters, the Police are from Hong Kong.

                        I think if this happens in the US, the rioters, not protesters as used by the reporter, have long been shot not only once but rounds. The worst thing is this reporter is so ignorant and knows nothing about gun using by the US police when they run into this kind of situation happened in Hong Kong. Or maybe she knows but quote something else deliberately in order to bias TV viewers. American politicians and media are well known for double standard.

                              I support freedom of Hong Kong but this is a pretty clear case of self defense. Don't swing hammers if you cant take the a hit.

                                            Hate to say it but that appears to be a legit shot. If your colleague is surrounded and beaten like that. Then one of them comes at you close range swinging. First instinct to use the revolver in hand rather than switch to the non-lethal ones seem rational.

                                                        I'm not sure why the police don't just st and back. These people are desperate. This is turning into a war. They shoukd just stand back and let them wear themselves out.
