Will the Hong Kong Police Ever Face Justice?

At this point, can anything more be said about the Hong Kong Police Force’s brutality? They are simply out-of-control thugs. Any resemblance to an actual police force is merely coincidental. They are targeting not just demonstrators, but passers-by, journalists – even elderly people and families – for beatings, pepper-spray, bean-bag rounds and rubber bullets. And the Hong Kong government has issued a broad injunction making it illegal to publish any information about the police that might in some way identify them. They wear masks and remove any identification from their uniforms. Who knows if they are even actual police officers?

These tweets showing what has been happening are just from today.

Journalist committing the crime of journalism, according to HK police. Foreigner committed the crime of being foreign. Obviously they are spies.
These girls committed the crime of walking while drinking something. What were they thinking?
This man committed the crime of getting his face in the way of a tear gas round. After that he committed the crime of being injured, leaving his face bloody, burnt, and smoking.
HK police said she committed the crime of taking pictures they don’t like. She looks dangerous. Arrest her!

These people committed the crimes of buying and selling medicine in a pharmacy. Only terrorists need medicine!

These kinds of incidents have been happening for weeks, with no end in sight. The Hong Kong police are supposedly trained professionals, regarded as the best police force in Asia. What has happened to them? They’ve turned into a gang of undisciplined thugs, and despite clear evidence of their brutality, the Hong Kong government and police leadership continue to deny there’s any problem. It’s gaslighting.

It’s tiresome to keep on repeating this, but we must: the Hong Kong police must be held accountable for their brutality.
