7/15/19 Reese Erlich on What’s Really Going On in Hong Kong

The Ultimate Managed Hosting Platform

Scott talks to Reese Erlich about the demonstrations in Hong Kong against the country’s proposed extradition law. After a Hong Kong man brutally murdered his girlfriend in Taiwan, and then fled back to Hong Kong, knowing he couldn’t be extradited to the country where he had committed his crime, lawmakers thought it might be time to enact new extradition treaties, of which Hong Kong has very few with any countries. Even though the proposed law is fairly moderate in what it allows, protestors fear the ways it could be abused by the Hong Kong or Chinese governments.
