On Thursday's Backchat, more on the extradition bill with a focus on the police action on June 12th. Was the use of weapons appropriate? Should we set up an independent inquiry to investigate the police's use of force? Was the assembly a riot or not, and why does that matter? Could people wearing helmets to join clashes with police be charged with rioting? Can the police arrest patients in public hospitals? Is the complaints procedure fair and robust?

On Friday's Backchat, is social media a good thing. After Facebook and other social networking sites suffered one of their worst outages, we ask if they're actually causing more harm than good. Do Instagram, WeChat, Youtube, Snapchat, Twitter, QQ and the rest build communities, champion good causes,connect people from around the world with common interests, educate, inform and entertain at almost no cost? Or do they foster fake news, cyberbullying, stress, addiction, envy, low self-esteem, sleeplessness, tiny attention spans and political manipulation? Are you and the world better or worse off? - And will they still be around in a hundred years time?
After 9.20, launch of youth hostel in Yuen Long - alternative housing for young people.
