The act of indiscipline and oppression of basic human right is alarming nowadays and can’t just be ignored. Lesser or weaker citizens are oppressed on a daily basis and till now, the government hasn’t found a decent solution to this rampant issue.
There are a lot of world countries involved in this life threatning act all the way from our local Nigeria to far end of the world North Korea. Oppression can be in form of infringement of right or maltreatment of public citizens. Most times, cases are often built against country polices and military forces as they often misuse their position to inflict suffering on innocent people.
Hong Kong protests: Police tackle 12-year-old girl to the ground

A vivid presentation was in the case of a 12-year-old girl and her brother being held down by riot police. Hong Kong police have come under fire after footage of officers tackling a 12-year-old girl to the ground near a pro-democracy protest made rounds on the net.
The Police reportedly said the girl took part in an illegal gathering and officers exerted “minimum force” after she “ran away in a suspicious manner”. This wasn’t so as the girl’s family say she was simply out to buy school supplies and became scared when approached by law enforcers.
Nearly 300 people were arrested at Sunday’s unauthorised demonstration.

The protests were over the government’s decision to postpone elections to Hong Kong’s parliament by a year. The government said this was necessary amid the coronavirus pandemic, but activists said the government was using the outbreak as a pretext to stop people from voting.

The video, from Sunday afternoon, shows two police officers approaching a young girl in the Mong Kok area and telling her to stand still. The girl paced fastly as she ran then got struck by a baton from one of the officers. She was pinned down by the other guard and this resulted to the viral thread.
Local media say the girl and her older brother were later treated in hospital for light injuries. Police issued them and a passer-by with penalty tickets for violating social distancing rules that prohibit gatherings of more than two people.

The girl, whom local media are only identifying as “Pamela” to protect her identity, said she acted out of fear in which the police didn’t understand.
Reports claim she and her brother are being treated as the police confirmed the treatment wasn’t intentional. They claimed they merely approached here with the intention of a stop and search routine as protesters could be violent at times. Her reaction made them suspicious and they did what must be done to protect the masses.
Police brutality has been viral over the years and this needs to be corrected by various world leaders.
