Hong Kong Riot Control Synergy

Lock protesters up in cages

Yet again the spoiled youth in Hong Kong are throwing their toys around. Instead of going down the pub, they are trashing windows, cars, police stations and trying to blind people with lasers. There are so many violent protesters that they are testing a clause in the Hong Kong transition treaty that *allows* China to intervene when there is massive civil unrest.

The Hong Kong police probably can't react because they just don't have the jail capacity.

This idea is mutually beneficial to Hong Kong and China :- offer the poor a new life in China and use their cage homes to lock up the spoiled brats. Many service industry workers in HK live in just a few square metres akin to a walled or caged in bunk-bed level.

-------------------------------

It would be surprising if China weren't behind the riots because the protests are just inviting China into HK. And besides that only 28 years remain before HK fully reverts to China, so those rich kids should probably just move now anyway.

       You'll need a person to air the Xun.

       I think the problem is...the HK parliament was trying to bring in a law where people could be extradited to the mainland China. Seeing that China does not have the best reputation for people just going into a black hole, this might make people with a nervous disputation a bit unhappy.   

       It is not going to work long term, so HK'ers are looking for somewhere to go, like Taiwan etc. If enough leave and HK goes from a major financial centre to a middling town with lots of empty apartments.   

       There are some still UK police there, but they can do naff all.

       What does that mean ?   

       //the HK parliament was trying to bring in a law where people could be extradited to the mainland China//   

       That law was abandoned weeks ago. Since then the kids are demanding other stuff.

       Isn't a Xun (Ocarina type) a wind instrument like a whistle?

       the ongoing demonstrations in Hong Kong and Moscow are enough to give a person hope for mankind. Probably just a summer fling though.

       Taking away freedoms from people who weren't smart enough to leave before it happens in real time is only going to end badly.

       If that, then what?
