This is terrifying: HK cops find a bomb-making operation and arrest nine, six of which were aged 15-18. Had they been allowed to succeed, this cell would've bombed the cross-harbour tunnels and other infrastructure. Excellent work from the HK police force have preemptively stopped what could've been a high-casualty event.

A week on, Hong Kong police stop and search people attempting to mourn for man who stabbed officer https://app.hongkongfp.com/2021/07/0...abbed-officer/

As citizens continue to mourn the attackers at the location where this occured, police continues to harass citizens and arrest people at the place using an assortment of different laws.

That was an act of terrorism, there's nothing to mourn.

Quite a number of people in the society found they share the same feeling with the one who died and thus mourn for the losses of the soul.

That's not much of an argument. The individual was involved in an act of terror with the intent of causing harm to law enforcement. What was this singular act intended to accomplish, exactly?

As events over the past 2 uears have turned the city law enforcement into the tool to suppress all sort of different civil activities in the city as well as ignoring those law whenever they feel convenient, it is only natural that they would gather hatreds, and be seen as an extension of the regime itself.

So, you're basically justifying and defending murder.

Having a justifiable hate ≠ reasonable to commit murder.

I'm glad we clarified that: the individual in question, regardless of what his intents and aims were, had zero justification to pull a knife and commit his crime, and those backing such reprehensible actions are similarly in the wrong. If anything, it's actions like that which result in increased security responses.

It's debatable whether such mourning constitute backing such actions. The government is trying to paint it in this light but some other experts disagree.

Five persons are arrested for publishing children's book that are metaphors for the democracy movement.

RTHK will soon become a pro-CCP mouthpiece after it partners with CCTV.

The HK Professional Teacher’s Union is disbanded due to pressure from pro-Beijing groups.

France 24 reported arrests of university students for "advocating terrorism" after the union for mourning the death of the 50-year old man who stabbed a uniformed HKPF officer.

Those arrests were absolutely necessary; their support of the attempted murderer otherwise implicitly suggest it's acceptable (where it is not) to carry out copycat crimes. Now, the riots ended a ways back, and the events we see now are more related to Hong Kong news rather than the mass movements in 2019 and 2020 (which is, as Toukairin was helpful enough to set, the topic of this thread): help me to understand why you're continuing to post articles of tangential interest without commentary?

An overreaction.

You can say that the students saying they need to sympathize with the guy who stabbed a unifomed officer is bad enough, but that doesn't fall into the definition of terrorism.

That's them not thinking enough about what they were doing/saying.

These events are still only remotely related to the riots, molotovs and attacks on bystanders we saw a few years back, and presently, no one here is discussing the topic because it’s passed. I’m failing to see a need to periodically mention every little arrest or policy, especially when the unrest (which is the thread’s topic) has been contained. I remain curious to know what is to be gained with periodic mention of such?

If you still disagree with it, we'll have to agree to disagree. But I'm sure you'll disagree anyway.
