Hong Kong (12/11) — A day after the shooting of the 21-year old Black Bloc protester by a Hong Kong Police officer the pro-protester media was quick to question the Hong Kong police on the shooting as over-eager. CNN suggested the Hong Kong police is out of control. The spokesperson of the Hong Kong Police has rejected categorically the claim.
“CNN is degrading itself to just bad reporting,” said a senior police source. The actual video chopped down to in portraying the police officer shooting the protester. Some journalists are suggesting this is a false flag operation, a set up, and other ridiculous claims. The unfortunate fall of a student dying was presented by main media reporters as a result of the police chasing the protester. Another poster in English appeared in 24 hours calling for a halt to Police style executions surfaced. The claims are fake.
However, the group was about ten to twelve individual strong which raises questions if the police led into an ambush. Remembrance Day in Hong Kong besides the shooting also saw resistance by the citizens of Hong Kong against the Black Bloc protesters. A fact not covered by the mainstream media.
