HKUPSU Journalist Insulted and Threatened by Police Officers

Our journalist were criticised by the police for only focusing on filming the police, instead of the protester behind, when reporting at the Chatham Road South Park. The police said the following: “The rioters know how to use a gun”, “There are petrol bombs falling out from your back pocket”, “Is this your first day at the job?”. The police officer then used glaring strobe lights directly on journalists, stopping journalists from filming.
