Hong Kong student shot by police: Video shows uninterrupted take of events that led to shooting

  • Published: 02 October 2019
  • Hong Kong is reeling from the violent clashes on Oct 1, where a police officer fired a live round
    at a protester at point-blank range. A video uploaded by the Hong Kong University's
    Student Union shows an uninterrupted take of the events leading up to the incident,
    the incident itself, and the aftermath. CNA breaks down the incident into four distinct phases.

              Come on fake news agency! The title should be "Hongkong riots shot by police". They are criminals who are trying to kill a police! They would be killed. Here is USA police are trained to do...

                  Self defense by Police... The shut protester must not let go easily and should be charges with assault with a deadly weapon to the police.

                          For people supporting police and not pitying the student
                          What's happening outside this video is that police ganging up and beating up innocent protestors for 5 months now, with your theory hong kong police should be shot at least 10 thousand times

                                        When criminals (black masked rioters) attacked the police on ground, and one criminal uses a metal rod attack another police, that police shoots!
                                        It is called self defence

                                          Protester 2 is not trying to help the one shot. He grabbed his iron rod. Trying to get rid of evidence.

                                            Why is the media refer to these violent individuals as "protester"? These are rioters and criminals doing violent acts under the name of democracy. The police officer absolutely had the right to use extreme measures to defend himself and his fellow officers.

                                                The Hong Kong “Peaceful Protests” escalated to “Riots”, and now to “Terrorism”. Definition Terrorism: the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

                                                  I could have given my respect for gunned down protester for courage and bravery like a true fighter. But then HE CRIED like a BABY shouting for mama's milk.
                                                  So I say, good for him. You deserved to be shot.

                                                    That rioter rushed in not to help the shot rioter but to attempt to take his weapon. It cannot be concluded otherwise unless there is an attempt to deceive the public.

There was no justable use of force then which is why it has escalated to this level.

                                                                    • Vee Halen

                                                                      As for the lady who was shot, had she stepped out to declare her version, or allowed the showing of her medical report? Rather, she applied for a court order to block the cops from obtaining it.
                                                                      We hadn't heard from her for sometime, isn't it. Or maybe I just hadn't been following it closely enough.
                                                                      I agreed with the second part of your statement though. Thus an independent committee of inquiry should indeed be set up.

Those fully geared up brainless idiotic turtles went to wrong school. They are Willing to die for so called democracy then why ask for help and hospital. Should ask for casket.
