Short summary http://www.sfchronicle.com/news/wor...-Kong-new-year-celebration-marred-6817391.php Video https://gma.yahoo.com/video/hong-kong-fish-ball-revolution-130855156.html This is a disgrace. It is Chinese New Year, a holiday where people are suppose to be happy and work together, not fight each other. I get where the gov't is trying to come from. Health and sanitation is an issue worldwide. I do not know what the Hong Kong regulations are but the police shouldn't have forced down like that. At the same time, they were just doing their job, but maybe a little excessive. On the other hand, the citizens SHOULD NOT have attacked the police like that. I know the police and public relationship has been stale since the Umbrella Revolution but this is a disgrace. You are attacking a figure of authority. Think about what other consequences that follow. One attacks a cop, many more will join in. Your point only goes so far until violence erupts where your points don't carry as much weight anymore. It's the year of the monkey, and these guys are acting like a bunch of monkeys. I honestly feel the cop in that situation had every rights to shoot to protect himself. Just a mess in Hong Kong at the moment.
