OUT-OF-CONTROL RIOT POLICE YELLED “GO AWAY” AND “COME CLOSER” SIMULTANEOUSLY FOR PROVOCATION
At approximately 20:00, a group of police officers raised the blue flag across the Fung Cheung Road, saying that the all people present were breaching public peace by clamor.
A plainclothes officer subsequently rushed forward and clamored, yelling “go away” and “come closer” to provoke the protesters. He was recalled by other officers as he was walking forward and standing alone.
