Hong Kong police ramped up the violence firing water cannons and teargas at protesters in a show of force against pro-democracy protests.
A small group of protesters clashed with police, fighting back and beating the police. That’s when at least three of the police officers pulled their guns and fired a warning shot.
One of the officers then kicked an older man kneeling before them begging them not to fire on the protesters. The police also aimed their weapons at the journalists.

God, please protect these protesters in Hong Kong. Every person who wants to be free should know true freedom.
Meanwhile inspired by the 1989 “Baltic Way” Hong Kongers held hands across the city in protest of their government. I admire their courage and resolve. They are a beacon for so many more people across the world who would dare to say to a tyrant: I am free!

Foolish Hong Kongers believe China is going to let them become a free State. I’m afraid the hammer will come down soon and there will be blood. This isn’t going to end well. I’m praying for Hong Kong’s freedom starved people.

From TG: protesters received massive welcome when they arrived New Town Plaza. Some protesters bowed to other citizens. This contrasts strongly against the response cops get when they go anywhere. #antielab #hongkongprotest pic.twitter.com/NhmNvgmdQV
