Police Flinging Non-threatening Man Down and Pointing Gun at Passers-by

An STS police officer rushed at a man and flung him down on the ground in an sitting-out area at the junction of Tai Po Road and Fuk Wa Street in Sham Shui Po on 6 October 2019.  As shown in the video, the man dressed in black, wearing a black mask and carrying an umbrella, was walking by himself.  He was not making any threatening or suspicious movements, certainly not in any unlawful assembly and apparently not endangering the public.

Another police officer carrying a long gun soon came close and, under no apparent threat, pointed his gun at passers-by without giving any warnings.
