Protesters who came out yesterday were outraged.
"Breast is not a weapon," they chanted. There were many liberal men who wore bras, while some women wore them on top of T-shirts or waved bras around.
"The way I dress today looks quite ugly as a male, but it is not as ugly as the judgement, which is like pointing at a deer and calling it a horse, and the police's decision to prosecute Ng without following guidelines," said social worker Jordi Tsang Sing-cheung, wearing a coconut bra.
Someone should have taken an informal survey to see how the men felt about wearing the bras...
Anyway, the magistrate later admitted he was threatened and feared for his safety since the verdict, but that didn't stop some protesters from carrying signs that read: "God will punish".

While the protest gathering was not legal since the group had not given advance notice to the police, the authorities raised a yellow flag to warn them that this was an unlawful assembly and they could be prosecuted.
However, the warning was ignored and the protesters left peacefully after they handed a petition to a police representative.
Perhaps the authorities were amused by the unusual protest, as summed up by retired teacher James Hon, who was also sporting a bra for the first time: "We have come to this rather odd method to tell the world how ridiculous it is."
Ng is going to appeal the sentence. We wonder if Lady Justice will put her blindfold back on to ensure a fair trial...
