Hong Kong Boogaloo 11/17/2019 FULL BOOGALOO

I think we have nearly hit full Boogaloo last night in Hong Kong. The University students are basically at war with the government enforcers. Sunday night night HK local time has been their finest hour so far.


A police officer was hit by an arrow on Sunday outside the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) as violent clashes broke out between pro-democracy protesters and law enforcement.

Police deployed tear gas, projectiles, and fired blue dye from water cannon trucks.

For the first time, the force also used a device mounted on an armoured truck to emit high-pitched noises – which police later identified as a “Long Range Acoustic Device” (LRAD).

The Hung Hom campus of PolyU has seen pitched battles between protesters and police since Tuesday.

The campus is close to the toll plaza of the Cross-Harbour Tunnel, enabling protesters to block the major crossing for days.

On Sunday, police said a member of its media liaison team – typically dressed in a blue vest – was “struck in the calf by an arrow” at around 2pm.

The officer was taken to the hospital in a conscious state.

Another officer’s visor was struck by a metal ball, though it did not result in injury, the force added.

“Police warn that the violent activities in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have escalated to rioting. Anyone who stays behind or assists rioters may be liable to the offence of ‘Taking Part in a Riot’,” the police said in a statement.

Anyone convicted of rioting can be penalized by up to 10 years in jail.

Police have condemned protesters for using “lethal weapons” against officers, including petrol bombs, bows, arrows, bricks and metal balls.

The intersection of Chatham Road South and Cheong Wan Road has been the site of intense fighting, with police firing blue liquid from water cannon trucks and volleys of tear gas.

Protesters also threw objects from an elevated position inside the campus and launched projectiles with a makeshift catapult.

Sonic device ‘not weapon’

At around 2:30pm, police used a sonic device mounted on top of an armoured truck. Prior to that, officers warned protesters over a loudspeaker that lethal force may be used.

The City Broadcasting Channel – a new outlet run by students from the City University of Hong Kong – reported that the sonic device was used for about three seconds and caused slight discomfort to its reporter.

Apple Daily said that its reporter heard three seconds of a “loud, shrill noise” similar to a car alarm.

In a statement, police stressed that the Long Range Acoustic Device was a “broadcasting system but not a weapon.”

“Using the LRAD is to convey important messages over a long-range in a noisy environment,” the force said. “Unlike what is said in individual media reports, the LRAD does not generate ultra-low frequency which will cause dizziness, nausea or loss of sense of direction.”

Hong Kong protesters shot bows and arrows and hurled petrol bombs from a barricaded university campus on Sunday, as police charged and charged again, firing tear gas and blue liquid from water cannon after fiery clashes overnight.

Several protesters fired arrows from rooftops at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University amid some of the most dramatic scenes in over five months of unrest in the Chinese-ruled city.

The clashes spread into Sunday evening, with protesters greeting each water cannon charge with petrol bombs.

“Rioters continue to launch hard objects and petrol bombs with large catapults at police officers,” police said in a statement. “The shooting range of such large catapults can reach up to 40 meters … Police warn that the violent activities in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University have escalated to rioting.”

In the university courtyard, civil engineer Joris, 23, said he would be prepared to go to jail in his fight against the government. Those shooting arrows were protecting themselves, he said.

“The police violence has been over the top,” he told Reuters. “The protesters have been reacting to the police. We haven’t fought back as much as we could. I would be prepared for jail. We are fighting for Hong Kong.”

Reuters correspondents heard a high-pitched wailing coming from at least one police vehicle, suggesting a new weapon in their crowd dispersal arsenal.

Chinese soldiers in a base close to the university were seen monitoring developments with binoculars, some dressed in riot gear with canisters on their chests.

  1. While I wish the folks in Hong Kong well am wondering what the long term goals are should they prevail(a huge if)and what sort of govt.( if any) the protestors want.I do wonder the goals of all the protestors beyond getting rid of say gas hike prices(Iran and for a long time France).These are just the final straw it seems to me in regards to folks fighting.
