The amazing thing about this week’s mass arrests is that the alleged crime of those detained is their plan to follow a constitutional procedure laid down in the Basic Law. You would think this could hardly be illegal.

Not according to Senior Superintendent Steve Li of our new local Gestapo, the police national security unit.
