    Exclamation Hong Kong shot schoolboy and Indonesian reporter

    The crisis in Hong Kong has gone from bad to worse, as the government continues to engage in behaviour that leads to further escalation.

    Back in August, as the Chinese-backed Hong Kong puppet government refused to give in to any protest demands, protesters launched a general strike and multiple blocking of the international airport, one of the busiest airports in the world. The regime responded by threatening to invoke a colonial-era "emergency" law, that would allow the Chief Executive (with the Executive Council, entirely appointed by her but also has no power to block her anyway) to create law herself, appropriate any business and private property, judge on any case, imprison anyone (for up to 2 years, if she could not be bothered with creating a new law on something herself), gift money to anyone from the treasury, and in fact introduce slavery.

    The most notable event in August was the police shooting a first-aider straight in her right eye, causing her to lose it permanently. The police has refused to acknowledge fault, and declined to rule out arresting her if she comes forward with a complaint.

    The Hong Kong police does not recognize first-aiders as legitimate medics, and they have not respected medical neutrality, even when it comes to official government ambulances and doctors. Previously, they stated that there was no need for first-aiders in protest sites, as they could call in medics themselves should they wish to.

    Later in August, China itself tightens its grip in Hong Kong by forcing out Hong Kong's national carrier's, Cathy Pacific, CEO. Since then, it has threatened to block Cathy from Chinese airspace all together, and has forced it to fire hundreds of its staff on all levels, including the head of its labor union.

    Aviation is not the only field to suffer from state prosecution. In the past weeks, the education department has ordered teachers to submit lists of students who have gone on strikes, and it has threatened to de-register 2 teachers who were found to have made objectionable, but private, comments against the police. It has not entertained complaints against a pro-Chinese teacher who destroyed protesters' property and asked passersby to "take [their] trousers off to f*** her" as an insult.

    Later on in September, the Chief Executive agreed to withdraw the extradition bill in the future, upon approval from President Xi of China. She also agreed to hold a dialogue with citizens in the month.

    Whilst those seemed attempts to deesculate - as she herself wrote in an ad she posted using government money in a New York publication - her behaviour suggested otherwise. The police's arrest numbers soared, and they have began routinely arresting *elementary schoolchildren*, as well as numerous others on very questionable charges. For example, they arrested the president of a students' union after he bought 10 laser pens, accusing him of carrying weapons; later, they arrested him again for alleged "theft" because he was temporarily taking care of a lost item, in his capacity as an event organizer (he already arranged to hand over the item the day after, and the owner confirmed such a meeting). Most recently, they arrested an American citizen for shouting at them, and another Caucasian man of unknown nationality for shouting "shout dick man".

    In the dialogue session, the Chief Executive allowed only 150 spaces for members of the public to attend in an area holding more than 10,000 people. the most groundbreaking claim she made during the session was that "autonomy" for Hong Kong is illegal and unconstitutional, that it's against the "One Country, Two Systems" arrangement that initially promised to Hong Kong a "high degree of autonomy" and "Hongkongers governing Hong Kong". This is unprecedented as previously, the official stance was only that democracy could only be granted if China coud filter the candidates, and autonomy was never deemed unconstitutional. Note that any person holding political view deemed wrong by the regime would not be qualified to run for office.

    Later in the month, the administration began talking about cancelling the district council elections in November, for fear of people voting against pro-Chinese politicians. Whether this would be done remains to be seen.

    As the US speeds up the passing of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, the police has esculated their level of violence.

    In the past few days, one of their higher-ranked officers, a Caucasian British citizen officer, labelled a protester being assaulted by a group of police a "yellow object". This is a further dehumanization from the police, as previously, the only "merely" called protesters "crocoachers", which are still living beings.

    The day before China's national day, the police shot rubber bullets straight to the press on a bridge, and an Indonesian reporter was hit directly in the right eye. Her lawyer has said that the terrible attack has left her right eye permanently blinded. The first-aider who helped her said the Indonesian consulate in Hong Kong is considering pursuing the case in an international court against the Hong Kong tyranny. This was not the first incident of police violence against journalists, as both BBC and CNN reporters, for instance, were attacked in the weeks prior.

    The application for a peaceful protest, like it is routine now, was rejected by the police for 1 October. The Hong Kong constitution guarantees the right of assembly, which the police has stripped off this year by beginning to block applications for demonstrations. This would not stop protests, of course, but the police would then be able to arrest anyone of "unlawful assembly" for the simple act of walking on the street. On 29 September, for example, the police began firing teargas before a demonstration even started, as they previously blocked the protest.

    Widespread unrests happened on China's national day, with the highlight being the police's first use of live ammo, in this case against a secondary schoolboy. The officer claimed to have felt that his life was threatened, and decided to shoot the pupil straight in the heart area, against the international and domestic standards of shooting limbs or the torso area. The bullet fortunately missed the heart, but only by 3cm. The police declined to promise restrains, but instead lowered the thereshold for their use of force in their guidelines, and said in a press conference that the shooting was "reasonable and legal".

    While the boy was undergoing surgery at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, the police went to arrest him, as they have done against many protesters in the past months. Earlier today, they pushed the case to the court to begin the proceedings against him in absentia, whilst he remains in intensive care, kept alive with an artificial lung.

    An association of public doctors have been condemned by the police, after the association compared shooting someone in the heart at point blank range to an "execution". A former chief executive, CY Leung, has demanded the boy's school to expel him.

    The government has announced an emergency meeting in the past few hours, and is expected to formally launch the emergency power law to grant the Chief Executive absolute power this Saturday. The police and pro-Chinese lawmakers have urged the Chief Executive to use her total power to make a anti-face covering law and to impose a curfew without input from the official legislature.

    BREAKING: The Chief Executive has given herself absolute power by activating the Emergency Ordinance from 1922, back when the British governor had powers "next to God".

    For now, the Chief Executive has published an anti-mask law to impose further sentences on anyone disobedient to the government.

    The Emergency Regulations Ordinance (https://www.elegislation.gov.hk/hk/cap241) gives the Chief Executive absolute power, as she can freely censor, block information; freely make laws without the legislature, sit and judge on any case she wishes to, arrests and detains anyone on no charges for up to 2 years, establishes slavery and forces people to work for her, gifts money from the government to anyone for anything, deports anyone, appropriates any business, confiscates any private property, and so on.

    China has given Hong Kong the death sentence. It's now up to America to save us.
