Hong Kong police arrest six during Sunday protests

A total of six people were arrested on Sunday during clashes in Hong Kong between police officers and protesters, Hong Kong police confirmed on Monday.

According to a police statement, an organization held a public event on Sunday, from 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm local time, which was generally peaceful and orderly. One person was taken into custody for failing to produce proof of identity. Some protesters then moved to other areas and at one point, started to block roads. Police set up a cordon line and repeatedly warned the protestors as it became an unlawful assembly. As the warning failed to work, police took actions to disperse the crowd, and arrested five persons for assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of duties.

"Police respect the public's freedoms of expression, speech and assembly. It is the policy of police to facilitate all peaceful public events while at the same time ensuring public safety and public order. Police strongly condemn the illegal acts of protesters for blocking the roads," said the statement.

TVB, the city's sole terrestrial TV station is reaping the inflow; the torrent of advertising money gushing into its piggy bank.
When the thousand or so young thugs refused to go home after the day's main demonstrate scheduled ended, the camera crew knew they were on another overtime pay weekend Live News.
.
These frequent challenge to the rule of law; the illegal public assembly, blocking and closure of the main roads is now becoming the regular past time for our Hong Kong young thugs.
Their fear of the Hong Kong police has long disappeared.
"The cops won't dare hurt us because they'll be locked up by our Oxford educated judges", so goes the street tunes they chant.
.
The police will come.
They play the game chickens with the law breakers, hoping the beating and drumming of their riot shields will be enough to disperse the illegal gathering at the  of the street.
This softly, softly approach by the police is a very expensive way of controlling the illegal assembly.
With virtually no arrest made after each encounter, the thugs will be regrouping, testing the authority's patience again this coming Sunday.
Unless Lam changes her tact, this waste of policing manpower can go on for months.

It's heart-wrenching to watch the thugs use sticks with spikes and hooks affixed to attack the police in the riots .

Crack on, head will roll...
Believe it or not, it's true.

Only six of them?  Police should round them all up and charge them!  Rioting cannot be condoned under any circumstances!

So true oh Lion,
However, I ain't surprised at all.
Two women from Britain and Canada were hired to Hong Kong’s top court...
   Their presence will expand the count of foreign judges in Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal from 12 to 14.

   Seven police officers jailed last February for their actions handling Occupy protesters.

     A former police superintendent was jailed for three months...
Local judges must hang up their wigs at 65 while there are foreign judges appointed to the Hong Kong bench who are already in their 70s.
   Inform yourself:   https://www.hkcfa.hk/en/about/who/judges/npjs/index.html

In Singapore, international judges are only permitted to hear cases in its international commercial court and appeals from such cases.

Carrie Lam has climbed down by announcing the extradition bill "is dead".
I hope her political career will also die very soon.
I supported her for the CEO post, but it soon became very clear Lam was out in her depth. She is no politician and was easily outmanoeuvred by her opponents.
It is sad to realised this woman hasn't learn anything in her service under Leung.

Lam's climb down posed no surprise to me. Her tear dropping performance in front of the TV after the verbal attacks by her detractors earlier shown she is not made of the hard stuff. However, I doubt the anti-China mobsters will let her off the hook so easily. They'll be making a list of demands, short of handling back Hong Kong back to the UK.
Step down Lam, and enjoy your retirement with your family.
Take a cruise, you have deserved it.
