    1. No protesters have been killed in police action over the past three months of demonstrations, the Hong Kong government has stressed, as rumours that at least three people were beaten to death sparked hysteria.

    The government issued the strong denial on Saturday, calling the rumours malicious.

    “It is deeply regrettable that such an irresponsible rumour keeps spreading with the ill-intent to mislead members of the public, and to sow division and discontent in society at a time when the government is sincerely trying to establish a dialogue platform,” it said in a statement....

    2. There is a Chinese idiom "Ru chou wei gan 乳臭未干 (Cantonese pronunciation: Yu chau mei gwong) literally meaning "smell of mother's milk that is yet to dry". It is used to describe "immature and inexperienced" people. It is alarmingly clear that those "immature and inexperienced" radical protesters in Hong Kong, consist mostly of students, are more expert and experienced than the police and government in public relations. :smile:

    How can a group of teenagers who "smell of mother's milk that is yet to dry" show the police and government in a bad light with disinformation? The radicals' allegation of police killing at the MTR station bears the hallmarks of the US-led propaganda in the Syrian civil war. Several times in the past, the US alleged that the Syrian government had been using poison gas against civilians. Consequently, it launched missiles at multiple military targets in Syria to punish the Syrian government for its alleged use of poison gas against civilians.

    As the skirmishes gradually descend into a civil strife similar to that in Syria, the radical protesters in Hong Kong look more like their Syrian counterparts -- rioters, rebels and fighters.

    3. The alleged police killing at a MTR station is obviously a malicious lie and disinformation. If the alleged deaths did occur, family members would have already come forward to sue the police or claim insurance. So far not even a ghost has emerged to sue the police for the alleged killing. The identity of the alleged dead protesters remains unknown, even to those who claim or allege the police killing. The local government has to take the following steps to debunk the disinformation:

    (a) Set up an international independent body to investigate the alleged police killing. The police innocence should pass all "stress tests" (the favourite catchphrase of the radical protesters in Hong Kong).

    (b) Arrest those who spread the malicious rumours about the alleged deaths. All rumour-mongers will be released if they can prove their allegations or get family members of the alleged dead protesters to come forward to sue the police.

    (c) Photos and videos of the radicals' violence and vandalism should be televised hourly every day to reveal the radicals' lawlessness to the general public.

    (d) A museum should be set up to exhibit objects, photos, videos, etc which prove the vandalism and violence of the protesters.

    (e) All police personnel should be armed with hidden cameras to take photos of the radicals' violence and vandalism.

    (f) All police personnel must attend relevant courses such as psychology, public relations, social policies, politics, etc in order to respond effectively to the radicals' disinformation and propaganda.
