My personal opinion is that Violence in protests is wrong, people should not be subjected to violence unless it is absolutely necessary and a last resort, not (as we have recently seen in the news) to shoot and injure someone protesting for their freedom.
The problem that China has caused by shooting a protester at point Blanc range is that it will not make Hong Kong surrender, if anything it will cause more frequent and more violent protests to spark up. China have possibly just made the situation worse in the fact that by them bringing more lethal weapons into the battle that might inspire Hong Kong to also use lethal weapons to fight back to China, therefore making the situation worse by possible causing a full blown war between Hong Kong and china, which would not end well for Hong Kong, since China has one of the biggest armies in the world.
As much as people think that violence is effective it is most certainly not. In fact fighting violence with violence is like fighting fire with fire, you are just going to create more fire. Instead of being violent the people of Hong Kong could hold peaceful protests, which would possible convince China that Hong Kong is not willing to start a war but instead agree on living terms. As well as the fact that china could just take over Hong Kong there and then they could also possible agree on terms with their now peaceful former adversaries.
