  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/sep/11/china-detains-taiwan-man-military-hong-kong-border) reduced by 71%. (I’m a bot)

    > China has detained a Taiwanese man on state security charges after he reportedly distributed photos of Chinese troops massing equipment on the Hong Kong border.

    > Lee, from Fangliao township, entered Hong Kong on 18 August, and sent photos to his brother and to Chen Ya-lin, a Taiwanese township mayor, showing paramilitary troops and equipment on Hong Kong's border with mainland China, Taiwan's government-run Central News Agency reported earlier.

    > Chen told the agency earlier that he was in touch with Lee on the morning of 20 August, when Lee said he was at the Hong Kong side of the border with China and wanted to cross over to Shenzhen.

  3. Well ok, China is bad.

    But I don’t understand why people travel to China. Especially people from Taiwan, Canada, etc.

  4. “This was supposed to be a top secret protestor purge, off to the camp with him!”

  5. Anyone have a link to the original picture?

  6. He looks smug and proud!
    He did the right thing! I applaud you sir!!

  7. So he was one of the champions that let us know that they were about to do Tiananmen Square 2.0

  8. This man did a small thing for us all by showing us the truth, my heart goes to him.

  9. So taking pictures of something plainly visible is illegal in China? Yup, just another reason why I will never travel to China in my life nor would recommend anyone else does.

  10. wait so this guy was actually a foreigner and not a citizen of either hong kong or the mainland?

  11. He just loves a man in uniform.

  12. It seems that Hong Kong is in a holding pattern at the moment, and everyboyd is on a knife edge, waiting for something to happen. Lets hope it does not end in a huge crackdown.

  13. this has to be a test of function, and it’s working.

  14. It’s common sense enough to know not to fuck with the Chinese when in China. This 200IQ guy fucks with the Chinese when outside China, then attempts to enter. What does he think is going to happen?

  15. Its and authoritarian dictatorship that is worse than 1930s nazis , what do you expect.

  16. Boycott China made products!

  17. TIL China is really just NK with 1.5B people.
