    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. And the good men and women of HK have done precious little to date.

    I hate to say this, but in any other city, there would have been well-organised counter rioters protests/movements/neighbourhood watches set up long ago.

    If the ordinary people of HK do not stand up and fight for what is right and just, and instead continue to be passive about, or even actively lend support to these willing foreign cat paw traitors in their own house, why should Beijing spend all that political capital and take the international reputation hit these riots were designed to cause to start with, to sort this mess out for HK just for the people of HK or bitch and moan to foreign media about how their snowflake rioters were being treated too roughly?

    I like to think of it this way.

    If this was mainland, the government has a duty to put down these riots because the government is given tremendous power.

    HK, under 1C2S, is the responsibility of the HKers since their government is limited in power.

    Beijing, by not doing anything, shows that it gives HKers sufficient freedom.

    The question is if they've found him to be the culprit, have the police arrested him?

    While it might be "romantic" to believe that the people can rise up and organize to fight these gangs, I think it is a little fantastical. Look at history, during the LA Riots, where there was a complete breakdown in social order. The people who suffered the most were Koreans who were left to fend for themselves. Even with their best efforts, damages were estimated to be $500 million.

    It is exceedingly difficult to formulate a cohesive defense against the rioters for a variety of reasons.
    1. The rioters travel. If you wanted to be patriotic, it is unlikely you will defend a district beyond your own immediate neighborhood.
    2. The rioters are exceedingly well organized. This is likely due to foreign support. They are always able to get their hands on ample supplies such as gas masks, improvised weapons, and bring sufficient numbers to intimidate others. To make an effective defense, you need better planning, better organization, and it is just too difficult to coordinate this among regular people.
    3. The rioters are younger on average. They have less to lose. Older people have business or family to worry about. The man who was burned has 2 daughters. Plus, look what happens when people organize to defend themselves in Yuen Long and North Point, smeared in the media as Triads. Then it opens up to more revenge tactics by the "Black Guard".

    The "good people" are relying on the law to protect them. They are the people generally less fearful of government ("If I don't do anything wrong, I don't have to worry about them"). Even in the "Cradle of Freedom" USA, when LA happened, when Katrina happened, they had no problems with bringing in the armed forces to bear. What is the HK government's plan? This much you can't blame on the rioters.

    So much for the popularity of the protest the MSM keeps telling us about.

    The mobs called a city wide strike, and just like last time, nobody take any notice, so the mob resort to blocking, intimidating people going about their business.

    There's lots of clips of people going to work today being intimidating, etc.

    I paticularly like this one where passangers got off the bus to clear barricades. Whats worthy about this is the man is a foreigner, and as such, the mob didn't set upon him like they would if he's a mainlander!
