旺角黑夜,now的長梯 / 區家麟

旺角黑夜,now 新聞的工程人員小龍被警察指襲警,扣留超過廿四小時後獲釋事件,究竟發生乜事,明報將兩條拍到的片合併一齊睇,我睇到這些︰

  1. 工程人員小龍一路退後,態度一路平和,係警員撲上前。

  2. 工程人員小龍非常盡責,見片中13”及50”,他一路站在攝影師前,保護拍攝中的攝影師。電視新聞採訪,當攝影師兵荒馬亂中拍攝,記者或工程人員,必定護在攝影師左右,「傍」住他,讓他站穩,因攝影師在拍攝,難以細看四周環境。小龍在混亂之際,用自己的身體作緩衝,這是專業的表現,也是應有之義。

  3. 兩片合併睇,只見到有一秒半秒 (9”或1’17”),長梯與警員可能有觸碰。

  4. 觸碰,看來只係揩親下,或者有一個警員用手撥開長梯,咁都可以叫襲警?

  5. 睇明報段片,約1’02″,有個警察已經情緒失控,要同袍撳住。

  6. 仲有,大批警察,隨即制服工程人員小龍,撳佢落地,就算(可能)同長梯有一下接觸,有乜咁大不了,係咪要受到咁樣待遇?

  7. 之後,成班警察仲要阻人埋去,兼圍成一圈阻人拍攝,日後要追究,也難以找證據。我看到,他們這個動作,一班人圍揪,一班人擋住唔畀影,配合得非常熟練。點解咁有默契?

而立法會議員葉國謙更謂睇片見到警員被襲擊,任何人都可以評論,但評論要根據事實,佢邊隻眼見到「襲擊」?佢睇緊邊條片?有無第三條片?請他清楚指出。作為一個人,說話要負責任,葉國謙身為議員,兼立法會保安事務委員會主席,講說話請有多一點根據。(補充︰27/11早上消息,葉國謙承認「表訴不準確」,願意致歉。見明報即時新聞。)

工程人員小龍已獲警方無條件釋放,但保留起訴權利。我就會問,如果他不是一間電視台的員工,只是一個普通路過的市民,他的遭遇會如何?他的處境有多少人擔心?被警察粗暴對待,有幾多人會知?有幾多人會關心?

這就是記者要走在最前的原因,記錄、監督。可以想像,如果沒有鏡頭影到,這件事會有甚麼結局。

人在做,天在看,市民都睇實;沒有紀錄者的鏡頭,這群警察可以更瘋狂。

  1. Again, with thousands of police at the scene, a few incidences mean the whole police force is full of corrupt people. We should really thank people like you for:

    A) further alienating the police force,
    B) further diminishing police’s authority and the public’s respect for the police,
    C) further polarizing the public and the police, and
    D) further driving away good decent young people from entering the police force.

    Nicely done!!

    • No matter how you slice it, this is police brutality. As you can see another footage from dbc, the police was using the night stick hitting people for just being there. Every citizen the police see is either with them or against them. If you are against them then you are a criminal. Criminal deserves to be beaten.

      Is this normal?

      Should all the citizens got beaten be thankful to the police? They should blame themselves just because they happen to be there? Wrong place and the wrong time and deserve to be beaten, cuffed and locked away?

      All the media should praise the police for their work and everything will be fine?

    • There are 28,656 police in Hong Kong as of August 2014. There are around 6000 police in Mongkok. So more than 20% of all HK police were in Mongkok. None of the few incidences of attacks were stopped by the the police, which makes them either criminals or bystanders. Bystanders at the site of a violent crime is not what you’d expect from a police officer. So, if that’s not a good sample to indicate a thoroughly corrupted police force, then what is.

      You are right, we should:

      A) further alienating the police force,
      B) further diminishing police’s authority and the public’s respect for the police,
      C) further polarizing the public and the police, and
      D) further driving away good decent young people from entering the police force.

      Thanks.

  2. 最憤怒的還是曾任職傳媒的屈穎妍在今日的專欄中反指責記者是阻礙警察執法的幫兇! 為何香港變成一個黑白顛倒,是非不分的地方? 建制勢力可以無底線地毀滅香港,令人心寒!

    • 你仲睇屈穎妍?

      我睇咗明報廿幾年,喺睇完佢 928 社論後毅然決定要放棄呢個老朋友。

      放棄明報,順道放棄睇屈穎妍嘅文章,令自己唔駛咁勞氣。不過明報留得住我廿幾年,副刊係主因。

      我沒有 Facebook, 所以雨傘革命期間亦沒有 在虛擬空間 unfriend 任何朋友。但現實生活裡卻 unfriend 了明報。

  3. 片段看到的是:

    警員被訓練成
    1. 一班人圍揪,一班人暗暗地打
    2.一班人擋住唔畀影

    配合得非常熟練,希望除了用在市民身上,也可以大量使用在其他地方。

  4. 又見六七年港共被當時英治時期的警察驅打景象,猶使當年自命正義之師深惡痛絕之行為,今日歷歷在目重現眼前,足見不論誰管治香港,對維護管治者有利之行為,皆使用同一行徑,自古有云:做了鬼就會迷人,如此千古不易的鐵律,港人仍不知記取!

    英國發展民主規則,歐、美,加以發揚光大兼自我完善修正,凡數百年之久,今日港人身處當下時空,資訊發達,重温歐美歷史易如反掌,於網路世界俯拾即是,用資比照中土歷朝,及至今日所謂中國,千年來漢人有三分一時間深受外族管治,猶以滿清治漢三百多年,何以如此,個人有感因受斷章取義的三綱五常蠱毒,有以致之!

    管治者的權力來自君權神授,抑或由人民賦予,至關重要!一個係謨拜圖騰,一個係共建互信,一個要靠寄望成真,一個共同創造。

    縱觀人類發展歷程,人類乃群居動物,必須依賴有組織的社群目標與及相互保護,同步趨向共認方向,小如地方社區,大至每個國家,再大至環球宇宙,如此組織就有策劃者、督導者、執行者、各有不同身份的享用者,自然就有行使權力的使用者,擁權者大公無私,固然理想,唯見〝做了鬼就會迷人〞之說千古不易,就因此必要加以制約,不然,擁權者就不自覺而自肥,無權者就會出現慘不忍睹的局面,嚴如昨晚(十一月廾五日)在旺角出現的場景!

    倘若港人至今尚不知記取當下眼前景況、現今中共如何待民、台灣發展今日民主的成績,港人仍不斷謨拜威權圖騰,寄望威權施予,此非宿命,而係自虐也!

  5. Michael, I guess all 6,000 can see what is happening all the time. If you are happy for the police to deteriorate, so be it. Police brutality? Maybe. But does it mean you can simply project to all? Then can I say all occupiers are lawless rascals because of the small number who attacked the Legco building?

  6. “沒有紀錄者的鏡頭,這群警察可以更瘋狂。"
    “任何人都可以評論,但評論要根據事實,佢邊隻眼見到…講說話請有多一點根據。"
    Talk about hypocrisy… And funnier still, someone’s tone changed on radio when his guest took a more moderate view and refused to generalised and accuse all police.

  7. Reblogged this on 簡.評論 and commented:
    佔領旺角約兩個月,一直好和平。每次有衝突發生都係有反佔中,甚况警察來「搞事」。其實現在每個人都有鏡頭,上網多睇幾條片,從不同角度了解事件,誰是誰非不是已經好清楚了嗎?

  8. Come on, let’s put this in perspective, shall we?

    What the police did these last two days DID happen, right? It’s all on TV and social media. We have a right to know what happens in the city we live, right? The press is only doing their job, which we expect to be the case.

    The police should also be doing their job, professionally. They were held back for the past 2 months from doing their job, not by the protestors, but by our dear CE Mr. Leung. The police knew they should be doing their job but they couldn’t. Understandlbly they have been extremely unhappy about it. So some of them acted the way they did the last 2 days. That is exactly what happened.

    So no one further alienated the police. The peeople who polarize the police and the public and diminish pllice authority are those high up in the government hierachy. They put the police force on the spot when they should be as appointed political officials should be resolving this political situation themselves.

  9. The government should be held responsible, yes. And those who acted unprofessionally and let their emotions get the better of their judgement need to be accountable for their actions and charged where necessary. But what’s happening here is that ALL the blame goes to the police and the government. If you scrutinize and castigate the police and the government then do the same for the occupiers, protesters and leaders.

  10. The protestors are definitely less at fault. Yes, they cause traffic obstruction, inconvenience the public, make businesses suffer loss. Yes, some of them even abuse (verbally) the police and some of them obstructed the law enforcement during the clearance action. But …
    The police are a law enforcement entity, with all the powers conferred on them by the law, need to know they need to exercise restraint when performing their duties. Some of the police, while understandably upset, seem to be taking it out on members of the public. The “victims” of this “brutality” do not have what the police have: law enforcement authority, batons and other even more potentially lethal weapon, and the right to be in a place where the public cannot be.
    In a word, the police have powers that the public don’t. If they abuse them, the consequences are much more dire. If they are allowed to continue doing that, what kind of a world it would become?
    The same goes to the government. They have state powers, and all the authority and resources to make laws, enforce them and punish those who ignore these laws. It’s so obviously logical that given this imbalance, the government has a much greater degree of responsibility in public affairs. More blame is naturally assigned to the government when something is wrong in our society.
    The protestors have chosen the less popular way to fight for their cause, but the government has chosen to shirk its responsibility in dealing with the umbrella movement.
