    I really can't believe these monstruous people speaking against the protesters for fighting for their rights. People who argue that they are destroying stuff are missing the point : not spending the rest of their life as prisioners. So come on, stop saying crap. Stand with Hong Kong !

        似乎有一种错觉,香港的所有人都自觉站到政府的对立面上了,口中不这么说,只是说警察的不公平,可笑的是世界上可没这么公平的警察,诸多示例都早已指出,没有哪国警察会站在这种对警察施暴的人群上。他们似乎认为自己的权利是平白无故得来的,能用一切手段去争取自己觉得想要的权利,然后暴力也需要无条件包容,但世界上哪里有这么便宜的事情,那些所谓的民主国家的进程那个不经历长时间的阵痛和反复,美国黑人几十年前还低人一等,现在也只是改善。香港的市民似乎觉得自己高人一等,要拿到世界最好的权利,似乎与其他发达国家的人相互联系或勾结就能拿到利器一举定乾坤。这种思维习惯和看待世界的方式,在长时间的有心熏陶下,他们估计打心底就忘记了这个世界根本就么有那么美好的事情。只能预祝他们求仁得仁。

          A typical bloody biased reporting. She claimed the majority of the people support the protestors/rioters.she choose who to interview to rioters and their supporters. The reporter should know that if she behaves like those HK she will be arrested and if she resists she will be beaten!

                        NYT never shows how the police are usually surrounded and beaten by these "protestors" before retaliating. Always cuts the beginning off. Guys, please watch the live streams that show the whole story

                            06:19 does this woman realize that instead of doing something in her children's best interest, what she would end up doing is placing the blame of her future unhappiness on them? This is actually quite selfish of her and her children would not necessarily appreciate it.

                                Yuanchen Li Hong Kong want freedom of speech, not separation from mainland. It is indeed bad the rioters that destroy the place. But what's the difference you have with them? People who have other opinion, you just oppress them! Politics doesn't work that way

                                        The police were really just doing their job to maintain law and order without any political views, but somehow they were labeled as pro-communist by the protesters and became one of the main target of the rioters' atrocities. This is caused by the weak government who was too gutless to own up to their actions and biased media who had mercilessly demonized the police and blindly beautified the rioters.

                                      Holy crap they are seriously blaming the police and supporting the rioters. They find two people and make them represent all of Hong Kong. The police has been so nice to these rioter it is ridiculous. Just look at what happened in Missouri they literally sent in the army. The propaganda is real. Everything China is evil and bad everything US is good. Goodbye New York time you guys are BS

                                                My take on the protest violence is that there are violent (/criminal) elements in BOTH the police force and the protesters.
                                                Those are the extreme minority. The scariest part is that there is no one who could keep the law-breaking police officers accountable. They also received orders to terrorize normal citizens apparently.
                                                The key to ending the protests is the government, but it continues to let HK bleed irresponsibly by pitting the police force against the citizens.

Predictably, Donald trump says that he has nothing to do with what’s happening in Hong Kong. In America, 70 NGOs have endorsed against the new extradition law.

How dare the police attack a little boy with no weapon? (In many photos, we can apparently see that the kid was only holding a shield made by a kickboard and the police used real gun to shoot him?)

I think the major problem is that riot police should have been trained to not be dumb enough to be alone on the streets knowing full well there's a protest, and become a target for some of the violent protesters. And it's funny how when protesters get beaten up excessively when it's sometimes unnecessary honestly, it's justified, but when riot police get attacked by a bunch of protesters they aimed to shoot for the chest.
