  1. I can think of a couple of big US cities I would encourage these doctors to study.

  2. It’s hardly surprising, police brutality is an excellent way to cause high levels of ptsd.

  3. Shouldn’t it just be traumatic stress disorder?

  4. Scmp = china propaganda for people outside china

  5. I heard today you can only have ptsd if you’re a veteran so this is wrong

    Edit: should have added s/

  6. Did the surveillance cameras and AI cough up that statistic?

  7. Yet the crazy thing is most comments about the Hong Kong protests are people cheering for the demise of Hong Kong. I’ve seen countless comments saying things like “Well now that China is investing in Macau Hong Kong will go back to being a fishing village so good job,” or “its’ disrespectful o fly other countries flags, these kids have no respect!”

  8. Serious question- how do they have POST traumatic stress when this is still going on? Isn’t PTSD when you cannot live a normal life because of something that has happened to you in the past keeps recurring and haunting you?
