【法政巴絲】生於亂世 Law友的責任

6月11日放工落到金鐘地鐵站,見到一排排年輕人被警察要求搜身,我差點以為自己落了酒吧遇上差人查牌。腦海中立即浮現以前讀書讀過的警隊條例、警察通例,看着警察無理搜身,但又覺得無力干預。想着想着,就見到本身是大狀的楊岳橋議員及近來上了神臺的鄺俊宇議員出現,跟警察議論。

一人掟磚 集結者均可被控

警務處處長盧偉聰曾在6.12衝突後,公開表示將當日示威定性為暴動,及後改口表示只是「有啲人干犯咗暴動罪」,並非整個活動屬於暴動,當日沒參與任何暴力行為者不用擔心觸犯暴動罪。但根據《公安條例》第19條,法政匯思召集人李安然認為盧的說法並不成立,「如果你真係有班人非法集結埋一齊,就算你其中一個人掟磚都好,其他屬於嗰個集結嘅人都會係叫做暴動」
