Distrust of the police got decisive in the 2019 Yuen Long attack

A tragic incident occurred at Yuen Long Station on the outskirts of Hong Kong around 10 pm on July 21, 2019.

A group of people in white shirts indiscriminately attacked passengers at a subway station.

The group with weapons destroyed the shutter at the entrance of the station and entered the station yard.

There were some participants in the demonstration inside the station, but all the victims were ordinary passengers.

The group beat these people with wooden sticks, and more than 45 people were seriously injured.

The reporters who were there were also attacked and seriously injured.

During that time, the police received about 24,000 reports, but they hardly answered.

When the police arrived at the scene, more than 30 minutes had already passed since the incident occurred, and the group of white shirts was no longer there.

It is said that police did not investigate the case much after that.

In fact, it is said that senior officials supported the police officers at the end so that they would not immediately go to the scene of the incident.

The incident was caused by the cooperation of police and a local criminal group.
