Video captures Hong Kong lawmaker stabbing - BBC News 4.5
Pro-Beijing lawmaker Junius Ho is one of the most controversial politicians in Hong Kong, and has been heavily criticised by pro-democracy protesters.

Mr Ho was campaigning for an upcoming election when he was attacked by a man who appeared to pose as a supporter. The attacker was arrested shortly afterwards.

Video of the incident surfaced on social media and has been widely broadcast by Hong Kong news outlets.

Mr Ho and several others were sent to hospital with injuries. He later posted a message online saying he was fine and that he had suffered a superficial wound.

The attacker is not mentally ill, just evil.

"Pro-Beijing lawmaker" is a starting word, hints he "deserve" the stab? When will human governments unite instead of playing tricks on each other?

Is violence accepted ? The murderer was caught at the spot.

I can’t believe some of these comments- if he wanted him to die, he should have gone for his throat? I mean, are you kidding me?! What we are witnessing here is a live attempt murder at a politician, a well known figure of HK society! You could say its an attempted assassination, for Christ sake! This is ridiculous- in a normal society, we shouldn’t be doing this in everyday life. It goes to show just how uncivilized HKers have become and how HK government needs to find a solution to end this corruptedness and unnecessary violence. It pains me everyday seeing HK descend further and further into chaos, all because of protestors who don’t know what they’re really fighting for.

The murderer was caught, which almost proved to be a real assassination, not a farce directed by himself.
