Hong Kong police out of control
« on: November 10, 2019, 09:08:15 PM »
Police are totally out of control in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong police shoot protester with live round in Sai Wan Ho

Apple Daily just reported a 18-year-old female was arrested and raped by 4 masked alleged policemen of #HongKongPolice in Tsuen Wan Police Station. She was impregnated and abortion was done in Queen Elizabeth Hospital in mid-October.

Plenty more stories of out of control police in the past week.

Getting really ugly.

So this is how fake news is played out by China's Ministry of Truth about a young men gunned down in #SaiWanHo: "A traffic cop fired 3 shots to protect a busload of mainland preschool kids from rioters who intended to throw Molotov cocktails on the bus."

"Five Demands, Not One Less"
Note - Universal Suffrage is promised / guaranteed in the Basic Law - Article 45:


https://www.basiclaw.gov.hk/en/basiclawtext/chapter_4.html

A promise that Beijing has not fulfilled....and has no intention of doing so....
The first demand has been met, the other four have not been met.

Why an Independent Review of the Police?
Because the current system is rigged.

For example:


https://www.hongkongfp.com/2019/06/29/full-open-letter-hong-kongs-leader-calling-investigation-police-use-force/

Between 2004 and 2018, CAPO received 6,412 complaints alleging police assault. Only four cases were substantiated by CAPO, while over half of the cases were dismissed without actionable conclusions. Between 2010 and 2018, among all of the cases on police misconduct substantiated by the IPCC, the police responded by referring only one case for prosecution, while officers in the majority of cases were only given “advice.”


That is, the police committed over one assault each and every day for 15 years.
The police were exonerated 99.985% of the time.
People think that the current system is unfair.
But the police and the Government object to any outside / neutral review.

David Webb is as sharp as anyone in Hong Kong.

According to Michael Bloomberg in a recent PBS interview, Xi is not a dictator and the Chi-comms do listen to the public so they can keep their constituents happy..

Bloomberg was widely mocked for those statements here in Hong Kong.
He was sucking up to China because he is hosting a big Conference in Beijing on Nov. 20-22.
