    Police Violently Repress Protests in Hong Kong, Leaving Pools of Blood Throughout the City

    Police Violently Repress Protests in Hong Kong
    Frances Martel
    7-8 minutes

    Hong Kong police escalated the use of violence against protesters this weekend, the tenth since protests against Communist Party influence in the city began, flooding closed-off areas with tear gas and, on one occasion, allegedly shooting a protester in the eye.

    The harrowing image of the young woman, yet to be identified, bleeding profusely from her eye socket inspired protesters Monday to demand Hong Kong police “give us the eye back.”

    In another video, journalists caught police beating a complying protester and squeezing him into a pool of his own blood as the protester repeatedly told officers he was complying with his arrest and in significant pain.

    Police also used tear gas liberally in contained spaces – most notably, in an enclosed Mass Transit Rail (MTR) station – and fired pellets and bean bags at close range, injuring protesters. Many online questioned the use of tear gas, meant to disperse crowds, in a space where the protesters were trapped and could not physically disperse.

    Protesters have launched a White House petition to brand the Hong Kong police force a terrorist organization which, as of Monday morning, has enough signatures for an official U.S. government response.

    Thousands of protesters took to the streets on Saturday and Sunday throughout the city, the Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP) reported, despite police limiting the scope of protests, banning marching in many instances, and keeping protesters away from government buildings and police stations. While the protest movement has been overwhelmingly peaceful, protesters have attacked government buildings to prevent officials from conducting business that would limit their civil liberties. Most prominently, protesters destroyed the headquarters of the Legislative Council (LegCo) – only targeting the facilities needed to pass laws – to keep legislators from passing a law that would allow China to extradite anyone present in the city for violating communist laws.

    A full withdrawal of the extradition law – which makes Communist Party laws viable on Hong Kong soil and, thus, violates the “One Country, Two Systems” policy that governs the city – is the primary demand of the protest movement. Lawmakers have tabled the bill, which allows them to revive it at any time, but have refused to withdraw it.

    Protesters began surrounding a police station in the neighborhood of Tsim Sha Tsui late Sunday, prompting police to flood the area with tear gas and use bean bags, pellets, and other projectiles against the protesters. Video from the area circulating online showed a young woman with a bleeding eye being tended to by paramedics. She was reportedly shot by a bean bag round:

    Citing a source at the hospital tending to the protester, who remains unidentified, the South China Morning Post reported on Monday that the impact had “ruptured” the woman’s eyeball, but it was not yet a certainty that she would lose it. The unnamed source, a doctor, said the woman had endured six hours of surgery on her face to repair damage to her nose in addition to emergency measures to save her eye.

    Police protocol bans firing bean bag rounds at protesters’ faces, allowing their use only on bodies in cases of emergency.

    Hong Kong policy denied that officers fired the shot that injured the woman, whose status as a protester has not been confirmed.

    “There is no evidence showing that the cause of this incident was related to the police, Tang Ping-keung, deputy commissioner of Hong Kong police, said at a Monday conference,” the Communist Party propaganda outlet Global Times claimed on Monday. An unidentified source the Global Times claimed to be a police officer added it was “technically impossible” for police to shoot the woman to cause such an injury, though he did not explain why.

    Protesters taking to the streets on Monday demanded symbolically that police “give back the eye.” Some wore eye patches in solidarity:

    Journalists reported personally witnessing police officers shooting pepper balls and other anti-riot projectiles at protesters at close range, threatening serious injury. The use of tear gas in enclosed spaces also elicited horrified reactions as videos from prominent members of the protest movement began circulating online. Hong Kong police have neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of the videos:

    The Hong Kong Free Press published a shocking video Sunday showing more violence against protesters, this time against a young man pinned to the ground in a pool of his own blood by a police officer dressed in a black shirt and a construction hard hat – the common uniform of protesters. The man in the video does not appear to resist arrest and repeatedly says, “I understand; don’t press me”:

    Police denied that undercover officers had dressed as protesters to attack from within. The South China Morning Post found “force insiders” willing to admit to the tactic, however, calling it the “first move of its kind” during the current wave of protests. A senior police official did admit to a “decoy” operation but did not confirm that officers were dressed as protesters and insisted the operation only targeted “violent rioters.”

    Hong Kong’s government, a puppet arm of the Communist Party of China, has branded all the peaceful protests “riots.” Among the protesters’ five demands is an official government statement that at least one of those protests – the June 12 mass march for democracy – was not a “riot”:

    This weekend marked the first since the return of Alan Lau, a retired police deputy commissioner widely acknowledged as the man who successfully repressed the 2014 pro-democracy protests in the city. The Morning Post reported that, as of Monday afternoon, 54 people were hospitalized. The youngest is eight years old.

    Pro-democracy movement leaders began circulating a petition this weekend to ask the American government to brand the Hong Kong police force a terrorist organization, comparing their tactics to those of Nazi Germany. The petition currently has 130,393 signatures, over 30,000 more than necessary for a response.

    Hong Kong’s government continues to insist that the protesters are violent “extremists” seeking a full separation from the repressive communist regime governing China.

    “Some radical elements have changed the nature of the protests: some defaced the national emblem, and others took down a national flag and threw it into the sea. They said they want to foment revolution, to ‘liberate’ Hong Kong,” Chief Executive Carrie Lam alleged last week.

    Protests continued into Monday, shutting down Hong Kong’s airport.

    Question: Would Trump encircle the island and tell China we will defend it. Now, how about negotiating our new trade deal? Just baiting here. My answer: NO. Maybe thirty years ago but now our forces would be annihilated, I believe

    The President threatened China with new tariffs after trouble began in Hong Kong, anyone else think the threat has nothing to do about trade and is all about Hong Kong? China could have just went in and so far haven't.

    That is what Communists do to perceived enemies they either kill them outright or put them in 'reeducation' labor camps and people here in the US might want to pay attention and not listen to the siren song of the loons on the left with their empty promises.
    What is the lake of fire? What is it's purpose? Is the lake of fire eternal hell? Is there any hope of escape for those cast into this lake?

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    Beg to differ.

    Sino forces are crossing into Hong Kong as we type.

    The communist Chinese already have almost a million of their citizens in "reeducation/concentration camps". The Ughurs (Chinese muzzies). They're doing a bang up job on "reeducating" these folks too.

    I'd love to see President Trump officially tie the trade talks to maintaining the one country two systems policy on Hong Kong. The Chinese signed that treaty in 1997 when the Brits gave HK back. It's not a suggestion on the part of the ChiComs; it's a treaty they are willfully breaking. Better yet, have Trump break off ANY further trade negotiations with communist China until the full ChiCom/ British treaty on HK is fully complied with. And for giggles, put UN troops in HK to monitor their compliance.

    I would suspect

    The “police” who are showing thug like behavior are probably temp “police” on loan from PLA and Chinese State Security.

    The protesters crossed the international security zone (aka TSA area)

    What do you think the US’s police force would do if a large group did this at the Atlanta airport?

    I remember how harshly the protesters in Seattle treated in 1999 at the world trade organization meeting

    NEW: #HongKong's Civil Human Rights Front said it will soon announce a major "peaceful, rational, and non-violent" rally on Sunday, August 18.

    The CHRF is taking the lead again, after netizens on @lihkg_forum have been organising multiple marches across HK over the past weeks.

    Our Intelligence has informed us that the Chinese Government is moving troops to the Border with Hong Kong. Everyone should be calm and safe!

    I can't find any live feeds, so I guess they were taken out. The slaughter of the protesters may be going on.

    Actually I think the PLA

    Will softly beat the living cr@p out of the Golden Goose.

    Chinese economy is continuing to slide and the Central Power must not look weak. I think they are a little blinded by thinking the protestors are making them lose face that rationality is no longer guiding decisions.

    I do believe are large part of HK trade is built around US giving HK most favored nation status. This transfers a lot of money to the mainland, if China goes all Tiananmen Square US will likely withdraw MFN status and the Sino economy takes another drop followed by more banks being bailed out etc.... etc...

    At some point a military distraction seems almost inevitable for the state to rally the people around the Central Power and that is when things get dicey.

    Putin is likely enjoying his friends in China getting squeezed and probably is urging them to attack us. He would nothing better than China and US to duke it out even it is quick regional battle.
