Raptors (STS) beat up protesters with tailored batons

Special Tactical Squad (STS) rushed into Yuen Long Station and beat protesters with batons. Some of the batons seemed to be tailored to become more threatening, with added iron ring. Hong Kong Human Rights Monitor strongly condemned police for illegally tailoring their weapons, and emphasized that police must only use designated weapons during work. Hong Kong Human Rights Monitor urged for the investigation while police force had promised with follow-up action. A barrister explained that those police officers may have violated Offences against the Person Ordinance, if they alter their batons to cause higher damage or threat without reasonable explanation.
