      I could have shot 5 fleeing Rioters on their butt if I am the Police.
      And if rubber bullets, I would aim to the head.
      Lucky protesters, the Police are from Hong Kong.

        I think if this happens in the US, the rioters, not protesters as used by the reporter, have long been shot not only once but rounds. The worst thing is this reporter is so ignorant and knows nothing about gun using by the US police when they run into this kind of situation happened in Hong Kong. Or maybe she knows but quote something else deliberately in order to bias TV viewers. American politicians and media are well known for double standard.

          The New York Times is a joke bringing up the U.N standards.

              I support freedom of Hong Kong but this is a pretty clear case of self defense. Don't swing hammers if you cant take the a hit.

                              Hate to say it but that appears to be a legit shot. If your colleague is surrounded and beaten like that. Then one of them comes at you close range swinging. First instinct to use the revolver in hand rather than switch to the non-lethal ones seem rational.

                                            I'm not sure why the police don't just st and back. These people are desperate. This is turning into a war. They shoukd just stand back and let them wear themselves out.

                                                        The New York Times is biased against the Hong Kong police. Colour me surprised.

                                                        Attacking a police with a metal rod, yet being surprised when you get shot. You want to get shot with non-lethal weapons? When don't you use a pool noodle instead of a metal rod?

                                                                                            I am a Hong Kong resident, but what I see now is not peaceful demonstrations. Only mobs who constantly destroyed and attacked ordinary citizens. I would like to explain that a policeman was attacked by more than 20 mobs and firebombs were thrown at him at that time. I want the Western news media to report all the facts objectively.

I feel like a “like” is insufficient. I just wanted to thank you for this. By giving us the before and after, the freeze frames, and the impartial commentary during the video I feel empowered to more accurately judge the situation for myself and not feel caught up in the wave of people doing what “their news station” tells them is right. This is what news should be. Thank you.
