Standing behind a policeman while I was on the train today, I couldn’t help pitying him. How low has the police force sunk since the handover? It’s not the present outfit (the outcome of a bunch of clowns’ mentality that they have to change everything now that it is within their right to do so) which makes policemen look more like security guards in a shopping mall than the dignified enforcers of the law that they once were. It is the total loss of reputation and respect which is the inevitable outcome of them having to do the nasty job of suppressing peaceful protests and lying blatantly about it, culminating in the Commission-in-Chief recently having to tell ludicrous and shameless lies to cover up.
Their credibility, along with many fine traditions that Hong Kong used to enjoy, has been washed down the drain.
