It will teach the authorities how serious the people are about maintaining their freedoms.

The only losers are those that cast aspersions on people fighting for freedom.

Terrorism must be stopped whenever and wherever it happened. Before laws, there are no special people, be it reporters, or press, or politicians, or court judges, or foreigners, or crazy minds, or giant infants. If they promote terrorism, if they cry for terrorism, they are terrorists.

Chip Star, please respect others' freedom before pursue your own freedom, that is called selfishlessness.

Right, take out your frustrations with your elected officials by smashing your neighbor's window.

That's the way to go... got it.

I completely agree that the CCP and their thugs need to be stopped.

I respect everyone's freedoms, which is why I support the people of Hong Kong in their struggle against the anti-democratic, authoritarian CCP.

Shopping malls are people's neighbors? That a new one.

The shopping malls are collateral damage. Every struggle for freedom has collateral damage. Free people know this.

Shops are privately-owned business, sometimes family owned. And all of them insured by private companies, meaning everybody's premiums are going to increase.

Want to know how to properly protest, study the Velvet revolution of Czechoslovakia in 1989.

A totalitarian government was brought down without any violence, without the smashing of anything, a totally peaceful revolution. Everybody, young and old hit the streets, nobody wore black facemasks and they handed flowers to the police.

Wearing a mask, walking around with a metal bar and smashing random windows ain't gonna work.

How do you know it's not a careful calibration of lawlessness (by Lam) so as to speed up integration with mainland law enforcement?

I know they are hiding a hidden agenda when they (Lam & Beijing) are in sync with their propaganda.

They started with an unnecessary bill. Even if it passed, wouldn't achieve the objective of extraditing the suspect to Taiwan. AND, when Lam had a chance to hand him over to Taiwan, she set him free instead. If you were a HKer, wouldn't you be very angry?

Then they immediately labelled protesters as terrorists and rioters, but there are now evidence that mainland agents started the rioting. They are still starting much of the false flags actions. They are planting evidence on protesters, they have even employed gun for hire thugs, engaged with triads.

The same recalibration into lawlessness and chaos continues unabated. But through their loud speakers, they are blaming the unpatriotic protesters, the CIA, UK secret service....everyone but themselves.

If they promote terrorism, if they cry for terrorism, they are terrorists.

So why isn't Lam arrested for terrorism. Plenty of evidence out there of government initiated terrorism.

What was Lam's reaction when reporters asked about these evidence? Her answer - HK needs a firewall like China.

Hidden agenda... secret cabal...it's all a big conspiracy and only you know about it.

Right.... Got it.

Obviously, they are the people who demolished public properties, who beat innocent bystanders, who assassinated political rivals, who burnt govt buildings, who attacked police men and women, who wear the same black masks as terrorists in the middle east.

You can label them, and call them your daddy, your mommy, but before laws, they are terrorists.

All the best to the freedom fighters in HK in their struggle. Hit those who wish Communism to rule in HK, hit them hard and dont stop hitting until victory is achieved.

Dont worry about those who throw names like "terrorist" at these freedom fighters. They are simply Communist sympathizers who have a hatred of freedom, like the HK government.

Oh you meant the police since the beginning ? I totally agree with you.

Those police officers should also be held accountable for their actions, the recent gang rape of the arrested lady is the behavior of invading forces. DNA has been taken and hopefully light will be shed !

Sadly I am worried about who is going to be able to make those rapists "police officers" accountable...

So many protests across the globe.

Nah, you ain't got it. If you did, you'd be able to see through propaganda, and see through the agenda of an authoritarian regime.

They're even arresting politicians now, got it?

A police officer this morning shot an unarmed kid in the chest at close range. At no point did this kid display himself as being a threat, nor did the police officer issue any prior warning.

Clearly the police are now going by a shoot to kill policy.

(Go on twitter and look up his name Kwan Kar Wing. He's already been named and shamed with his murdering face and name plastered all over the internet)

China's land. China's laws. China's right. Isn't this the "logic" you use to defend Japan acting repugnantly? Why does it apply to Japan and not China?
