On Sept. 28, in a troubled Hong Kong, a riot police officer used his water bottle to rinse the eyes of a protester doused with pepper spray.
Outside of the Central Government buildings police had shot pepper spray at the protesters. One of the protesters caught a good dose of the spray in his eyes and cried out in pain: “I stood so far away from you. It’s too much. We are unarmed. How can you attack us like that?”
A riot police officer wearing a gas mask lightly patted the young man’s shoulder and said, “I know. I know.” He then took out his own water bottle and started to rinse the man’s eyes.
