警務處與開槍警員「割席」

警務處今午發表聲明,指示威奣在多區以雜物堵路。期間,有警務人員在西灣河拘捕違法者時,曾開槍及射中一名男子;而在沙田及東涌的執法行動中,有警務人員曾拔出配槍及擎槍。

在聲明中,警務處否認網上有流言,指控警隊高層下令前線人員今日行動中可胡亂開槍。

「警方嚴正澄清絕無此事,警隊對警務人員使用槍械有嚴格指引,所有警察都必須為自己的執法及行為負責。」

咁即係前線開槍警若有刑責貴客自理!割席割得咁快?

黑警聲明轉載如下【全港多處有激進示威者破壞 警方驅散及拘捕時曾使用配槍】

自今日早上起,激進示威者持續在本港多區以雜物堵路,甚至從高處向馬路投擲大型雜物。另外,有暴徒向港鐵車廂內投擲汽油彈,以及破壞大學設施。因應多區出現混亂的情況,警方迅速採取驅散及拘捕行動。期間,有警務人員在西灣河拘捕違法者時,曾開槍及射中一名男子;而在沙田及東涌的執法行動中,有警務人員曾拔出配槍及擎槍。

對於網上有流言,指控警隊高層下令前線人員今日行動中可胡亂開槍,警方嚴正澄清絕無此事,警隊對警務人員使用槍械有嚴格指引,所有警察都必須為自己的執法及行為負責。

警方強烈呼籲激進示威者冷靜及保持理性,切勿作出傷害他人的行為,亦呼籲其他示威者及在場市民,切勿阻礙警方執法。

Since this morning, radical protestors set barricades in multiple locations in Hong Kong. They even dropped large and heavy objects from heights to carriageways posing grave danger to road users. Rioters also threw petrol bomb into MTR compartment and vandalised university facilities. Due to the rioters’ extensive illegal acts, Police has responded with dispersal and arrest operations. During Police operations, one Police officer has discharged his service revolver, one male was shot. In the Shatin and Tung Chung operations, police officers have drawn their service arms from their holsters.

Online rumours stated that Police management have ordered frontline officers to recklessly use their firearms in today’s operations. Police clarifies that this allegation is totally false and malicious. Police has strict guidelines and orders regarding the use of firearms. All Police officers are required to justify their enforcement actions.

We appeal to radical protestors to be calm and rational. Protestors should stop all acts that threaten others’ safety and obstruct Police’s lawful execution of duty.
