Hong Kong police jailed over attack on democracy protester

Hong Kong police jailed over attack on democracy protesterSeven Hong Kong police officers were jailed for two years Friday for what the judge described as a “vicious” attack on a protester during pro-democracy rallies in 2014, captured on film and beamed around the world. All seven were convicted earlier this week of assault causing actual bodily harm to Civic Party activist Ken Tsang, but were acquitted of a more serious charge of grievous bodily harm with intent. It was “a vicious assault”, said judge David Dufton as he handed down sentencing at the city’s district court, adding that police officers who break the law “have to be made an example of”.
