Claims of Police Brutality Threaten to Escalate the Hong Kong Protests

Police brutality in Politics is everywhere, not only in western world, but also in Asia. Seven policemen have hurt a peaceful protestor in the most influential democratic protest in China since 1989. This democratic movement is known as “Occupy Central (Hong Kong commercial center)” in 2014 after “Occupy Wall Street” in the United States. Policemen have been ordered to prevent this illegal protest by Hong Kong government and Chinese central government. Another dispute in this movement is using tear gases toward peaceful protestors. If we compare the police brutality toward protestors, we can find some interesting facts about police using forces. For example, facing complex political environment and high public pressure, Hong Kong policemen can keep restrictive attitude toward people. After the movement, seven policemen were prosecuted by Department of Justice in Hong Kong.
