At around 1pm today, more than 50 nationalists wearing light blue t-shirts with the words “I Love Police” carried China national flags to the Lennon Wall in Fortress Hill. They removed the posters and memo sheets on the Wall, and chanted slogans outside the Fortress Hill MTR Station.
A few men in blue shirts beat and kicked passersby. Some civilians were kicked and fell on the roadside. Police arrived and separated the blue-clad people and civilians, and asked them to keep calm. Yet the police did not charge the blue-clad people but released them. Instead, a few civilians were stopped and investigated.
The government was lying about it being a shot to the shoulder - you don't get a bullet in your lung if you're shot in the shoulder. Doctors say the protester is very lucky to survive, especially since police waited several minutes before attempting first aid.Seems alright to me. Remember going to a lecture about 25 years ago on HK police , they have GPMG'S in their riot control arsenal. As depressing as spiral of increasing Cantonese on Cantonese violence is , a shot to the shoulder shows some ristrant
Police blasted for delaying treatment to shot teen - RTHKThree minutes can potentially be a difference between life and death because it is the left chest that we are talking about. We are talking about a place in the body where the heart lies, where the lung lies, where the subclavian artery lies … it is extremely fortunate that this student did not die on the scene actually”, the doctor told RTHK's Janice Wong.
Solidarity to the protestorsTotally predictably, there were massive protests and chaos across Hong Kong after the mask measure was announced - the MTR was completely shut down and another teenager was shot, apparently by an off-duty cop.
And now Carrie Lam has used the emergency law she'll probably keep invoking it to bring in curfews or other harsh measures if police want her to. Was not a wise move for the British colonial government to have transferred sovereignty to an authoritarian regime while leaving its 1922 "We can do whatever the fuck we want if we claim it's an emergency" law on the books.

Thanks, I'm no longer there, the people I know who are there are definitely getting quite worried and/or angry - seems like the government is doing everything it can to inflame protests instead of calming things down.Solidarity to the protestors
You've got to think there's a possibility that things could get very bad very quickly.
(You're no longer there right? If you are hope you stay safe)
