Hong Kong police trap hundreds of protesters inside major university

Violence in Hong Kong escalated over the weekend as activists armed with makeshift weapons threw Molotov cocktails and fired arrows at police. In the meantime, a court ruled that the government ban on wearing masks at protests is unconstitutional. NBC's Matt Bradley reports.

Anti mask law is unconstitutional? Lol it's an old British law during Hong Kong colonialism and a current law in the UK, but I guess they don't have a constitution anyway.

Western media are double standard as the focus on the action of police while play down or remove clip of the various criminal acts of the protester before police move in.
Wester media did not focus on how quick the western kill protester in similar situation.

The reason these riots have been dragging on for 6 months is because HK government and police are way too weak and soft! More violent anti-Chinese riots with vandalism, arson, rape and looting in Indonesia in 1998 were ended within less than a week when some geniuses trapped those rioters while they were looting abandoned Chinese-owned shops in shopping malls and burnt them alive. Several hundred rioters looting in a few shopping malls were trapped and burnt to death. The riots immediately ended when the news broke out. No more rioters dared to come out. The current situation in HK is actually an extremely good chance to burn them alive. They should learn from Indonesia's experience. These are the videos: https://youtu.be/YA6JicFZKt4 and https://youtu.be/H7FSbwHPL5U
If this occurred in the usa, all of them are classified as national terrorists.

lei enzo:
Gone too far: A protest (also called a remonstrance, remonstration or demonstration) is an expression of bearing witness on behalf of an express cause by words or actions with regard to particular events, policies or situations. Protests can take many different forms, from individual statements to mass demonstrations. Protesters may organize a protest as a way of publicly making their opinions heard in an attempt to influence public opinion or government policy, or they may undertake direct action in an attempt to directly enact desired changes themselves. Where protests are part of a systematic and peaceful nonviolent campaign to achieve a particular objective, and involve the use of pressure as well as persuasion, they go beyond mere protest and may be better described as cases of civil resistance or nonviolent resistance.

Unfortunately, many of these brainwashed thugs will get off scott free completely unappreciative of the fact that they've been treated with kid gloves from day one. And they'll continue to gripe about delusionally how the CCP and Xi Jinping are oppressing them.

At the very beginning of these protests I sympathised with the protestors but it's turned into something different from what it set out to be seems the violence is getting worse and some are taking advantage of the situation to simply wreak havoc and hide behind the message that they are fighting for freedom.
Didn't they "trap" themselves in there by invading the universities to begin with? Saying they're "trapped" even now would still be a stretch since the police are just there to arrest them. Just earlier today, there's some 70 rioters that turned themselves in and they were taken first to the hospital without any fuss. How is this being trapped? All this is is a bunch of self hating kids trying to play martyr for a bit longer.

These rioters will be charged and convicted for rioting. Try throwing Molotov cocktails into your news studios. Hope you can be as passionate about these rioters. 10 years in jail might not be time enough to cool their murderous behaviour.
