On Thursday's Backchat: we'll be looking at the role of the police in Hong Kong's current turmoil. Many have accused the police of repeatedly using unnecessary force, most recently in Sunday’s night clearance of protesters in Mong Kok. But many frontline officers are reportedly furious that they're being prevented from taking tougher action against lawbreakers. And with photos of alleged police misconduct widely circulating on social media, there's growing evidence of distrust between the police and a significant sector of the Hong Kong public. Should police be pushed to the forefront of what is essentially a political dispute? How serious is the problem? And what's the solution? Leave a message below and we’ll try to read it out on air. Send us a brief email at email@example.com or call us on 23388266.
